Rene & Tristan’s Anniversary in the Mountains

They held each other close and swayed back and forth as the tall grass swayed along with them in the cool breeze. It was a dance that was 10 years in the making as they remembered their wedding day that seemed so long ago, yet so recent at the same time. Where does the time go? And because they eloped and didn’t share a traditional first dance, they did it here, foreheads pressed together, just as in love as they were the day they shared their vows. The field was so hushed in the golden light, and it was such a special moment that I was blessed enough to capture. How often do we get to take time from our busy schedules and be in the moment with no one around, no phones, just the cool mountain air and the sound of each other’s voices? Almost never. Which is why I’m so thankful these two were able to do just that, and that I got to be there to witness it.

Rene and Tristan’s beautiful session was equally fun as it was breathtaking (literally for me, pregnant and breathing heavy the whole time haha)! Rene is the sister of one of my sweetest brides, so when we scheduled this session, I was so excited! We explored around the mountainside, trying not to trip, almost failing, laughing, me freaking out about how cute they were, and more laughing. I will never forget how beautiful this day was and how these two set such an example for marriage. When I asked how many years they were celebrating, I was floored when the said 10! They act as though they’re newlyweds, and she still giggled when he whispered in her ear and pulled her close. And Tristan says he’s not a fan of taking pictures, but I don’t buy it because he was killing it from start to finish! I can’t wait to see what marriage has in store for these two (and their little pups of course), and if this is what 10 years of marriage looks like, I can’t wait until then!
