How to hike the Laugavegur Trail

How to hike the Laugavegur Trail

For our 2 year anniversary, Rich and I decided to head to our favorite country for some "us" time. While everyone else celebrates by going out to dinner, maybe taking a weekend in the mountains or even a nice beach, we choose to spend it walking through blizzards, eating overly salted dehydrated food, getting blisters after long hours on the trail, and sleeping in a hut with 15 other smelly hikers. Talk about romantic. Not everyone's first choice, but why isn't it?

Backyard 15 Year Anniversary Session

What can I even say about these two.
They reached out to me last year to do an in-home anniversary session and their home was a really significant place for them that they wanted to capture.  They have been remodeling and pouring every extra second of their lives into this amazing place that you are about to see.  We started the evening at their favorite nursery, a place where they have spent so much time together gathering little pieces to bring into their home.  Then we spent the last bit of the day exploring their amazing back yard with a veggie garden, swing set, coy pond, rabbits, greenhouse, fire pit, gazebo, beach volleyball, you name it, it's there.  I could have stayed out there for forever. This home, this life that these two have built together, was such an honor to capture. Happy 15 years.

I spent the weekend in Seattle with these two, 
hanging around with their two cute little girls
and the most adorable dog I have ever seen.
We stayed up late drinking wine + talking about life and photography.
The next morning we spent the day finding good light around their sweet little home, 
and ended the day in a snowball fight in the mountains. 

I left this weekend feeling so encouraged, refreshed, and inspired.
Thank you Whit + Garrett for inviting me into you home, and into your lives. I am so grateful for you both!

These two just got married and yes they are just as fun as they look.  Spent the morning around their amazing LA home, playing with their sweet little dogs, hanging in the hammock, and cuddling on the couch. The perfect start to a Sunday.
