Baby, it’s cold outside. Really. Winter is upon us here in Grand Rapids! It has barely stopped snowing in the past 48 hours and I love the constant-snow globe that’s happening outside our windows!! Snow or not, I’m fully embracing the winter season this year. I’m embracing the slower pace, numerous cups of tea, Christmas lights and cozy fires. Also, with the winter season comes a quieter photography season and I’m excited to share previews of sessions + adventures from this past year that I haven’t quite had the time to blog until now.

Today, I would love to share a session from earlier this summer. During the last week of April, my husband + I had the opportunity to travel to Asheville, North Carolina with our best friends to celebrate their one year wedding anniversary. We spent the week in a lodge in the mountains – exploring nature + city life. We ate (a lot) of delicious food, took plenty of hikes + shared many wonderful memories together as we reminisced on their first year of marriage. On one of our last days in the mountains, we spent the afternoon photographing Jonathan (Jonno) + Rachel for an anniversary session and the results of that shoot are here today! Yay!

Standing next to these two on their wedding day (and likewise having them stand next to us) was one of the greatest honors of our lives. I’m so thrilled that they have chosen each other as life partners + teammates and I’m grateful to count them both as forever friends. Jonno + Rachel, here’s to many more adventures together and many more years [wonderful] of marriage! Cheers, my friends!
