Madi & Hayden | Anniversary Photography Session | Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park | Jacksonville, FL


After having to reschedule several times due to rain/thunderstorms (for those of you not familiar with Florida weather, it literally rains every day here during this time of year) I finally got to meet these two southern lovebirds for an early morning beach session!


Their love story was as cute, if not cuter than their accents, I'm such a sucker for accents - it's one of my dorkiest qualities. Madi & Hayden are from the same small southern town in Louisiana and though they didn't go to the same high school, their paths crossed when they were both just 13 years old. Madi described their relationship as young love, they fell fast and hard for each other and never bothered dating anyone else because they knew they had found their soul mate! Oh. Em. Gee. If that doesn't sound like something right out of a Nicholas Sparks novel, I don't know what does?!


They were both so bubbly and go with the flow during their session, something my thirty year old self could definitely learn from. I absolutely loved getting to know Madi & Hayden, capturing these photos to document their first wedding anniversary was just the cherry on top - I hope you enjoy their session as much as I enjoyed taking them!
