Quirky Steampunk Inspired Anniversary Session by Buzy Bee Photography

January 29, 2014

The beautiful part about anniversary sessions is that they reflect the shades of a marriage and a commitment made years ago. So any chance to share those beautiful stories, it's a good one! And Tricia and Marcus' lovely quirky steampunk anniversary session from Jessica of Buzy Bee Photography hits just the spot.

Self-professed nerds and comic/anime convention junkies, these two were made to be each other's helpmates for life. For a little background, Tricia shared, "I already had two children. I am very blessed with Marcus as he never blinked at marrying a girl divorced with two children."

They married in 2008 at their local courthouse, but have not one photo from that important day. When 2012 rolled around, they planned a small backyard vow renewal with the intention of getting those photos they missed, but the monsoon-like weather had another idea. And sadly, yet again, they weren't able to get those memories on film, so when Jessica approached them with her concept set in Newport News, Tricia was, needless to say, excited.

And when asked what made this anniversary session special for them, Tricia responded:
The fact that it put me and Marcus in a place to really silently let our feelings for one another. We love each other, but with three children (ages 14, 11, and 3), my photography and design career, both of us attending school full-time, plus Marcus's full time job... It is very rare that we are able to stop and look into one another eyes for a few seconds. We have a very good marriage, and even though we have special moments where we fall in love all over again, the shoot was very emotional. Not to mention I almost melted out of the makeup chair when I saw my hubby all decked out!
