Engaged || Chris + Jess

Chris and Jess celebrated their engagement with their closest friends and family on what was expected to be a warm Autumns day. 

Mother Nature had something else planned though. She brought the clouds, she brought the rain, she brought the wind and she brought the bitter cold.

However her efforts to dampen the mood were futile. Chris and Jess didn't let a little cold get in the way of their day and they celebrated with open fires, blankets and the warmth of good company, because frankly, that's all anyone really needs.

During the afternoon, Jess asked me if I could get a shot of her and Chris up in a tree. Two lovebirds willing to climb a tree for a photo? It was an offer I couldn't refuse. So up they went into the tree and it made me excited. Excited for what is to come for these two. Excited for the future trees they will climb together in their married life, some will be small and easy to climb, some will be much larger, sometimes one will need to help the other up and sometimes they may not make it all the way, but at least they will have each other.

At least they will have each other.
