Tracy & Tom’s Spectacular Mountaintop Day After Session
Tracy and Tom went hiking up a mountain along the Blue Ridge Parkway a few months before their wedding. When they reached the top, the view was — in Tracy’s own words — absolutely breathtaking and the first thing she thought was “I NEED to have wedding pictures here”. The problem was that the location was almost an hour away from their wedding venue and required more than two miles of hiking through the woods… in a wedding dress and heels at that. Not a good idea, no? So they decided to have the shoot a day after their celebration and worked with photographers Thad & Sarah Lawrence of 2&3 Photography (who also brought us the dazzling fireworks & flames e-session) to make it happen.
And happen it did! As you see, the photos turned out SPECTACULAR.
Tracy wasn’t kidding — look at the magnificent view! And this shot? Totally jaw-dropping.
Just how stunning are these images???
Let’s get to know the beautiful couple a bit better. Here’s Tracy with their love story:
We met right before we started our freshman year of college at the University at Buffalo at an involuntary three-week residential program. During this time, we were forced to undergo mandatory study hours, bed times and lights out before 10 p.m. every night (yes, they even came in to check on us!), drinking a glass of milk with dinner and many other crazy rules. We officially met during the program on a trip to the beach. We spent a lot of time together during the rest of our stay and once we returned to UB to start our freshman year we were extremely lucky to have already found each other and to have already formed so many friendships. When we finally married, we had known each other for over nine years!
After graduating, we moved to Raleigh, NC with our Chocolate Lab, Chip. Life has been great since moving here, we’ve had some wonderful opportunities and we’re looking forward to making many more memories!
Are you in love with their shots as much as I am? Tracy & Tom look like they enjoyed every minute of it too!
The day after was just wonderful. We were both relaxed and had so much fun with Thad and Sarah, who hiked with all of their equipment to the peak of a mountain, climbed out onto a rock ledge with us at 5892 feet of elevation, and truly enjoyed it. The pictures were the perfect breathtaking way to capture the beauty, emotion and magic of the entire weekend.
Thank you Thad & Sarah for sending me this heart-stoppingly gorgeous shoot, and congratulatiosn Tracy & Tom! Here’s wishing you guys a lifetime of married bliss. 🙂
