Marlies is from Germany, Victor is from Venezuela, they met in Spain on the Camino de Santiago, and they just eloped in Idaho Springs, Colorado at St. Mary’s Glacier. Who knew a hike would lead to all of this! Marlies wore her traditional Bavarian dress to have a bit of home with her, and the two said their vows overlooking a breathtaking view of the Rockies, with Victor’s younger brother, their dog, and myself as witnesses to this amazing day!
There's just something special about these two. SO much joy was a part of this day and is a part of who they are. The sweet simplicity of their love for each other & their friends and family is infectious, and you just want to stay a little longer with them and soak it up some more. If you can't tell, I just really love these two and am so excited to have been a part of their day.
I want to share the first part of our Portland Studio elopement inspiration from the OSP Workshop! We met in this super clean and minimal studio in downtown, where a spot was set for burgers & fries in front of a simple backdrop. Our models enjoyed a meal together, and I loved the thought of the couple grabbing an easy meal to celebrate their union together. It was ever-so-cute & clever, and SO very Portland.
This past weekend I had the opportunity for another session in a beautiful home, my new friend Olivia's home to be exact. At the OSP Workshop, Olivia welcomed a small group of girls from all over the country into her home to celebrate who we are as sisters in Christ & reflect on ways that we reflect that in our businesses.
Oh what fun it was to be a part of this wedding day! It is absolutely perfect that Hannah & Rob found each other to spend their lives together. She's grown up going down to St. Simons her whole life, and it's basically a second home. Rob grew up as a native to the small town, and the two met years ago as only seems natural.
I am so excited to share Mary Elizabeth & Thomas' session in the woods! These two are just something special. They met just before Mary Elizabeth's freshman year at UGA and after about a semester of seeing each other everywhere began dating. We actually originally planned to shoot their engagement session on the anniversary of the start of their relationship, but rain pushed us back a couple of days and we wound up with the most beautiful evening in Athens, a city that means so much to them both.
AH, the day finally came! And what a day it was. Everyone met at Catie's family's cabin in the woods to get ready. The property is an old Boy Scout camp that her grandparents took over years ago, and it was the most charming place to start the day. There was even snow still gracing the grounds from the winter storm that passed through!
Crystal & Zach celebrated their engagement this past week, and I got to explore a new state park with them! We were all a part of a styled shoot this past summer, and after keeping in touch they asked to have me capture their wedding day this coming spring. I knew our time together would be a blast... they are so much fun together and seem to completely forget about the camera.
