Y’all know we love engagements and weddings, but we also absolutely love showcasing couple that are celebrating their love years down the road! Yukari and Alex’s beach anniversary session truly showcased their comfortable, loving relationship in a beautiful Virginia Beach setting. They laughed, cuddled, and danced through their photo shoot with Mai Photography, and the finished product is beautiful! This session is a beautiful snapshot of this special time in their lives, and we love the special touches! To celebrate their eight year anniversary, they brought along an infinity symbol to use as a prop in their photos! They said, “We brought a symbol of infinity for our infinity love, which also can be used as eight for our eighth anniversary”. Their relationship is so strong, it’s impossible not to see how connected these two are. The beach setting emphasized the laid-back, comfortable feel of the day but the huge smiles and touching glances are a true glimpse into their daily lives. We are totally loving these summery shots, but don’t forget that anniversary portraits are great for any time of year! There’s something so special about being able to look back years on and celebrate the milestones in your life.

Tell us a bit about your relationship!

Although we grew up in the opposite side of the world, we feel so connected that we cannot imagine a life without each other. We complete each other like no one else can. I guess such mutual feelings helped us overcome our years of long distance relationship/deployment. Our love has grown so much and continue to get strong every day. We’ve got a long list of things we want to do together. We are excited to continue our journey and live our lives to the fullest!
