Justyna was there last June to capture the fire in our eyes shortly after our engagement. She immortalized the warmth and love of our marriage by photographing our wedding this past October. Finally, in March, we celebrated our relationship in a…less than traditional way. With all the formal events behind us, we decided to claim our own song of fire and ice.
Back-lit by the mountains and a brief pink sky as the sun dawned over the rocky peaks, we donned our cloaks and furs and hung swords at our sides. For our final adventure shoot with Justyna, we decided to try for something epic and unusual, and so we let out geek flag fly. It was more fun that we could have hoped, and so incredibly us.
So many of the major moments in our relationship were spent in the mountains. The wilds are a part of our couplehood now. We are so lucky that we had such an amazing photographer along with us for so many of those adventures, using her artistic eye to preserve them forever. We will cherish these photos always.
in the tin cold of morning
when the earth sighs awake
and fills the empty lung of sky
with birdsong and living things,
you are the warmstone.
you are the gold on the blue rocks and the salmon cliffs,
the granite that I lean against to melt frost into dew.
my Bronze Dawn, please listen:
if I glisten, it’s because of you.
