One of the things we really love shooting is these small little elopements/vow renewals from couples who travel far and beyond to have that magical experience of the Alps as they share their love for each other. We personally think it’s such a sweet little idea and we’ve absolutely adored every single one of these clients.
And these two in particular were just so much fun. We had just made our way down to a gorgeous little lake after spending the first half of the afternoon atop the mountains for the vow renewals. As we got here, the sun was still pretty darn high and harsh which we, at the time, didn’t quite want to be shooting in. Since we had time until the late evening, we opted to go find an area to just hang out while the light got a little softer.
While waiting, we saw our couple standing and speaking to each other, and we saw this burst of sunlight come through just above them. We instantly loved this shot, and as quickly as we could, got ourselves into position and caught them off guard.
