Picnic Anniversary Session at the Beach | Arthur & Gabi


August 23rd marked the one year anniversary of Gabi saying “Yes!” to forever with Arthur, and they decided to celebrate the occasion with a gorgeous picnic anniversary session at the very spot he proposed. Swoon! I just love these two so much!

If you’re a frequent visitor of my blog, Gabi and Arthur probably look very familiar to you. I had the honor of photographing their engagement session and wedding at the beginning of the year. It was so much fun getting to catch up with them and to hear their proposal story as we snapped some photos. Arthur planned to propose on the pier in St Joseph at sunset. He hired a photographer to capture the big moment, and also had their closest friends and family come down to witness it from afar. Only one problem. Gabi really just wanted to hang out at home and take a nap. In the end, though, Arthur got her out of the house and the rest is history.

Fast forward to today and we have to talk about this stunning picnic setup by Sincerely, K&J. Katie and Jennifer are based in South Haven and create picnic magic in locations throughout southwest Michigan. They partner with Late to the Lake for yummy charcuterie treats and have other add-ons to make each picnic experience your own. After seeing this in person, I definitely can’t wait to have a picnic date night of my own!

Without further ado, enjoy this sneak peek!

Cheers to so many more anniversary celebrations together – and hopefully many more photo shoots! 😉
