Mikayla and Greg chose to celebrate 6 months of marriage with Grand Lake
anniversary photos. What’s the best way to celebrate your anniversary? Taking a cue from Mikayla and Greg by dressing up and exploring an epic location, of course!
First, let’s take it back to how they met. In 2017, Mikayla had gone through a rough patch and invited herself on a camping trip with her brother and his girlfriend to get away for a bit. To make her feel less like a third-wheel, her brother decided to bring along some friends. By the time the trip rolled around, however, the only friend who showed up was Greg!
Despite the initial nerves, Mikaya and Greg instantly hit it off. After spending time camping and hiking all over Colorado, they got to know each other extremely fast and instantly knew they had found something special. As Mikayla told me, “How can you not fall in love in such a romantic place?!”
After getting engaged last September on another trip to Colorado, they had to switch up their wedding plans a bit. They eloped in private in March, but couldn’t miss the chance to celebrate in style on their 6 month anniversary in Grand Lake, CO! Since Mikayla hadn’t had the chance to wear her dress, it was such a joy witnessing their first look, and then exploring the beauty of the Colorado wilderness together!
While we’ve been seeing heartbreaking images coming out of Grand Lake due to the East Troublesome Fire
and are hoping and praying with everything we got that these fires are soon put out, Mikayla and Greg’s anniversary session has become a cherished memory in such a beloved place!
