Gold Creek Pond Trail | Vow Renewal | Philip + Emily

Intimate & quite - with a whole lotta smiles and laughs. The moment I arrived at Gold Creek I instantly fell in love with this breathtaking place! Our initial plan of going to another location changed last minute because It snowed in the middle of June!! Like what??  So we decided to come here and it felt like it was meant to be!

It was peaceful and quiet, the air filled with only the sound of birds chirping around us. The reflections of the mountains in the water was so clear, it almost looked like glass. It was the perfect setting for Philip’s and Emily’s vow renewal. Most people don't know what a vow renewal is, but simply put, it's just a way to celebrate your marriage. Doesn't matter if you've been married for only 1 year or 5, you can do it whenever you want and wherever you want! 

Philip & Emily are seriously my FAVORITE people! It was our first time meeting each other and it honestly felt like we were long time friends! We had such a blast hanging out the whole time and exploiting the trails around this beautiful lake! I couldn’t stop squealing behind my camera at how cute they were!!

If your thinking of doing your own vow renewal, or eloping someplace that is special to you, or have an intimate wedding somewhere out in nature, take a look at my work here and reach out to me if you connect with me and my work. I’d love to help you plan your adventure and capture your beautiful love story! 

My husband and I LOVED working with Annie! She is such a beautiful soul and she is so skilled behind the camera. She has a way of capturing beauty in the little moments behind the lens that take your breath away. She made us feel like family from the moment we met with her! 10/10 would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer to capture your special moments!
