I love early mornings. I love the quiet just before the sunrise when it feels like the whole world is still sleeping. I love the slight chill in the air. I love the pinks and the blues that form what looks like a watercolor painting that I know I could never recreate. I think everything’s just a little prettier in the morning. I don’t know how I got Kim & Thor to agree to wake up before the sun with me, but somehow I managed. And I think they loved it as much as I did.
Two years ago, Kim & Thor signed their marriage license in this park and vowed to come back every year on their anniversary to celebrate. They are two of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. Their love for nature, life, and each other is inspiring. Kim is incredibly helpful and unbelievably generous. (They bought a small cake for the two of them and she offered the rest of the cake for me to take home to Stephen.) Thor is extremely intelligent and takes a genuine interest in people. It has been such a pleasure getting to know the both of them. Happy Anniversary!
If you’re not currently a morning person, please allow these photos to change your mind.
Ps. This shoot was a little extra special for me because Orchard Hills Park is where Stephen and I got married.
