Getting to know Lee & Hope over the past year through our church's worship team has been an incredible treat. Young, in love, willing to laugh and be silly, and overflowing with support for one other's talents and goals, they are wonderful examples of faithful marriage. Lee first contacted me about wanting to surprise Hope with a photoshoot for their 3 year anniversary - he said she'd been wanting to do one and knew this would be special for her. They also always take a few days off around their anniversary to spend together and do something fun to reconnect. The sweetest, right!?
We began planning, but ultimately, the 'secret' part wasn't really practical. He opted to bring Hope in on the gift early so she could help with the planning and be prepared for the shoot. (good call!) The day of our shoot had us all a bit nervous with forecasted rain and overcast skies. We didn't have many options to reschedule and thankfully, these two were up for anything so we decided to go for it.
At a friend's gorgeous private residence, we strolled over misty hills and rolling farmland to capture some truly sweet moments. The looming rain added a beautifully unique element to their shoot, adding an edgy and romantic hue. I absolutely loved working with these two to capture the sweet, soft, and silly sides of their relationship.
Enjoy a few of my favorites from this cozy, fall anniversary session <3
