Anniversary photos are meant to be stunning, and this session of Laura and Brian was done in one of the most breathtaking locations we’ve ever had the chance to shoot in.
Laura was prepared to take the most beautiful anniversary photos imaginable, and had discovered the dreamscape vantage point on a hike with her hubby. When we visited Colorado in 2013, Laura and I decided to do a shoot-and-swap session of each other (our About photo is from that session!), and these anniversary photos of her and Brian were what we gave to her.
Being that I am a born and raised Florida girl who had just recently moved to New York, scaling the side of a mountain for these shots was a very physical feat for my linguine-limbs, even though Brian probably would laugh at me for even thinking we scaled anything more than a rocky hill! I love the adventure behind how these images happened.
The sun was setting and a perfect rosy glow was cast over the stony terrain. Laura’s blush-pink dress and cowboy boots with Brian’s blue denim-like blazer fit perfectly in the background. While we were taking photos, a deer even frolicked through the field nearby. It was surreal.
The majestic mountains, wildlife, and golden light almost 365 days a year makes Colorado one our favorite places to be and to photograph in — especially something as symbolic as anniversary photos.
