Bridgette & Ryan | 3 Years After I Do

Anna Wu Photography is celebrating 10 years in business this month! In honor of the anniversary, we’re catching up with past clients to see where they are now in our “After I Do” series.

Today, we catch up with Bridgette and Ryan, who were married October 26, 2013, in Foresthill, California.

So… How has life has changed in the last 3 years?

Ryan and I have adopted a beautiful dog, Skye. She brings us so much joy every day. We have moved to a larger apartment in The Richmond. I have switched agencies and have been promoted to Senior Producer at Swirl.

What is an unexpected lesson or a challenge you’ve had to overcome in the last 3 years?

We had to deal with terrible neighbors. They were constantly complaining and we felt like we were walking on eggshells in our home. Ryan and I stayed a team and were strong together. We got through it without demonizing each other.

Do you ever look back at your wedding photos? Do you have any favorite images from your wedding day?

YES! I love the one of Ryan and I holding hands in the woods <3

Looking back on your wedding day, is there anything you wish you had known or done differently?

No. Our day was perfect. We are very lucky.

Any advice for couples who are about to get married?

Always be a team. Talk to each other. Listen to each other. You are one unit.

Top three hopes or things you are looking forward to in your future?

More adventures with my husband. I look forward to traveling the world together. We are Aunt and Uncle now so we are looking forward to watching our nephews and soon-to-be niece grow up.
