The sun was setting, everything was quiet save for the swaying of the tall grass in the wind.
Couples sessions are truly my favorite thing to shoot. Newlywed sessions are particularly enticing because it gives a couple a chance to slow down and bask in that newlywed glow, without the pressure of the wedding day.
Tracy & Anthony were married in May, during the thick of COVID-19. Their original wedding was canceled and instead of postponing their day they eloped instead. They realized eloping made sense; what mattered after all was that they would be together and no lack of a big party would change that.
Tracy and Anthony embody the love that says ‘I don’t care about the circumstances, I choose you’ and wow – how breathtaking it was to capture that.
I’m a strong champion that photography isn’t just for your wedding day. Wedding days are monumental – no doubt; but there’s something about the time in between, the years and the growth and the changes as you knit yourselves together, that are worth documenting too.
So here is part of T&A’s story, one afternoon on our farm as the sun set over the Shawangunk Ridge. An afternoon where they could be present & dwell in knowing that despite everything, they had eachother.
I’m thankful to have spent time with these two and the love that is so clearly shown in these images.
