Virginia Aquarium Anniversary Session by The Girl Tyler

"Let's hear it for the sharks, let's hear for the rays!" is likely to get stuck in your head when you hear Virginia Aquarium in any sentence. So when this anniversary session by The Girl Tyler appeared in my inbox, I was already humming and smiling about their "really sweet gift shop." (Well done, marketing, well done.)

Luis and I met when I was in the Navy. We both had to do ASF (Auxiliary Security Force) which means we were basically security for the base where we were stationed. After we finished the training, I gave Luis my number. About a week after, we arranged to meet up. I told him I was on my way to his place, but I never quite made it. I got lost, and he had to come and save me from the nearby McDonald's. When he found me, he gave me a big hug and right then and there, I knew he was my "hubby-to-be" (of course, I did not tell him that then!). The rest is history. I love his smile and he loves my quirkiness. We both have learned to be patient with each other.

Between the turtles, seals, and other ocean life that live at the Aquarium mixed with this couple's love of water, Tiffany knew this would be the perfect spot to have her and Luis' anniversary session. Unfortunately, they did not have many photos from their wedding day due to their photographer's hard drive malfunction, so she definitely wanted to recreate a bit of the past wedding day with a bit of the present and surprise her husband with a wonderful beach mini-vacation.

Now I'd say cuddling up and watching the fish swim by underneath a gorgeous glass tunnel is a pretty epic way to celebrate the ebb and flow of marriage, life, and each other!
