A Moody Anniversary Session on the Washington Coast // La Push, WA
Garrett and Sarah eloped 10 years ago and made a promise to each other that they would celebrate their 10 year milestone in a much bigger way when the time came. For years, Sarah dreamed of wearing a gorgeous gown and hiking along the coast with her love and having it beautifully documented. This year, Garrett and Sarah (and Calla too) celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary and together made that long-time dream a reality when we trekked out to the misty shores of Second Beach so they renew their wedding vows and capture the photos that Sarah had always dreamed of.
This was that day and it was nothing like we had planned. The forecast called for sun, but it rained, the beach was littered with hikers and campers, tents and bonfires lined the beach, we had many little hiccups along the way and our shoot ended abruptly with a family emergency towards the end. Despite the circumstances, this was a family adventure like no other and it resulted in some of my favorite photographs to date. I won't attempt to explain the full story (I don't think I could even if I tried), but I will just leave you with a selection of photos that help tell that story. I'm so grateful for the time that I got to spend with this awesome little family and for the opportunity to document such a special memory for them. I asked Sarah to share her feedback about their experience and here is what she had to say. :)
