I mentioned last year that we have some friends who are professional photographers. As a professional photographer myself, I’m ridiculously picky about who I’ll let take my picture. I’m annoying like that. But these friends of our are truly so talented and we love our little annual photo swap that we get to do with them each year!

This year, we decided to go big or go home. We made a 4 hour trek into the middle of Wyoming, trusting our friends when they said they had the “perfect” location to shoot at. We showed up, and my jaw dropped. Yep, this place was perfect!!! The aspen trees were beautiful, the light was golden and gorgeous, it was so still and peaceful. I loved every single second! We had a really fun afternoon running around the woods taking pictures. It was a great way to spend time with our friends and also get some really awesome photos too! After our shoot, we ate dinner at this adorable little hole in the wall place in the middle of absolutely nowhere. It was such a fun evening!

When I saw all of these images, I couldn’t help but tear up. There was something so powerful about these pictures as a whole to me. These were taken not long after my surgery (praise God for a miraculous healing!!) and cause to me to have such a deep appreciation for David and what we have together, just the two of us. The fact that we are still this happy, still this in love and crazy for each other after going through such a difficult period in life….I can’t wait to see us when we are when we are in a season of good fortune. To me, these pictures are a testimony to the power of God in marriage…..and a testimony that my husband gets better looking with each year that goes by….and a testimony to the fact that occasionally, professional photographers can make you look skinnier than you really are 😉

 Bow-chika-bow-wooow 😉

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” -Romans 15:13

  1. What a fun day and a gorgeous location! These pictures are soooo amazing! Seriously, there wasn't a bad picture in the bunch. I especially love the butt grab picture. 😉 Ha ha. You and David are so stinkin' cute. 🙂


  2. I love the one where you guys are in a full embrace and the tress are so tall around you. It's a reminder of how small we are in thus big world but having your hubby (and god) you are not alone. Beautiful pictures!


  3. Beautiful!!! I really need to get some updated pics of DH and I. I keeping thinking i want to wait for family pics, but after 3 years maybe its time to just bite the bullet. We too are in such a good place despite all that we have been through.

    Love the verse you chose at the bottom. It's one of my favs and the one I have on my blog. 🙂


  4. Love the pictures! They are awesome and you two are indeed such a testament to God's love and grace! And as for the butt-grab picture … that's my husband's trick to get a good smile every time. 🙂
