Elise+Ryan// Intimate First Look

As Logan and I drove to Pagosa Springs, we marveled at the beautiful landscape surrounding us.

The power and beauty of the mountains around us could not compare to Elise as she walked up to Ryan. You’ve never seen two people more in love or happiness so tangible. 

The first look is not just a moment of intimacy and vulnerability, (though that is such a benefit of this non-traditional way,) it is a pause that allows each couple to soak in the reminder that the most important part of the day is standing right in front of them.

Truly, during the moments of Elise and Ryan's first look together, Logan and I were both thinking "THIS is why we photograph love stories."
