Denise and Will celebrated their 5 year anniversary tucked away in an Airbnb in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. They absolutely love the mountains, so they couldn’t think of a better way to spend the weekend. Having updated pictures is important to them, and why not have it done doing something they love?
They reached out with a vision of what they were looking for. We researched some mountains nearby and they landed on Black Cap Mountain in Conway, New Hampshire. We were going to wake up for sunrise to make sure we got the perfect lighting and the least amount of people.
Denise mentioned the night before she was planning to wear her hiking clothes throughout the entire session. They didn’t want to dress in fancy clothes on top of a mountain because that just wasn’t them. I honestly loved this. They did exactly what they wanted and were truly themselves.
We set off to the mountain at 4:15 to get to the summit by sunrise at 5:15. We watched as the sun came up, watching the sky turn mixtures of bright pinks and oranges. The mountain was all ours and a photographers playground. They told me their story how they met 12 years ago at college and the rest is history. I asked their secret to keeping their love and fire alive and their response made me smile. It went something like “You have to find someone who is like your best friend. Who has the same interests and passions as you do”. I couldn’t agree more.
