Liz and JP reached out to me a few months prior to book an adventurous session in the Adirondack mountains to celebrate their 10 year anniversary.

Without hesitation, I sent them a few of my favorite hikes near Lake Placid and got them on my calendar. Lucky us, we ended up having the entire mountain top to ourselves for the entire evening – which hardly ever happens at this iconic Adirondack hiking trail.

Liz had her hair and makeup done by the so-talented @adkbri, and together Liz + JP read each other love letters they had written in their original wedding vow booklets. Liz went barefoot for most of our time together, and even wore a custom pair of gauge earrings (handmade by her and JP) that I embarrassingly gawked over the entire evening.

They prepared an amazing playlist that we all jammed out to for the near 2+ hours we spent on the mountain, so I was sure to give them plenty of time to just “be” – dance, run around, and play freely – all without me ever telling them what to do or how to pose.

While weddings and elopements are my bread and butter, I honestly love couple sessions just as much. When planned out thoughtfully and with sentiment in mind, an engagement, anniversary, family, maternity, or even “just because” session can go from quick + basic to deep, meaningful, fun, AND memorable so quickly.

After only 4 hours together, I already love these two so so much and cannot wait until our next adventure together.
