Nestled behind Ijams nature center is one of the most beautiful quarries I’ve ever seen. In the summer people can go paddle boarding and explore the gorgeous area around. There are docks to jump off of and tons of beautiful moss covering the cliffside. 

Just a couple of minutes past the nature center is a little parking lot. In January, on a very cold morning, we met outside and these two followed me and a fellow photographer out to capture this exciting moment.

I love looking through my grandparent’s wedding pictures, seeing them dressed up and with their families. Even in my parents day, we only have a few photos to remember everyone in their early nineties galore- but my parents actually hired a videographer back then, and every few years we watch Steve Young (the football player’s) dad officiate the ring ceremony, see my mom and dad smash cake into each others faces, and all my young and hip aunts and uncles dance on the dance floor. We even have footage of everyone giving them advice. They’ve been married for 25 years this week, and it is still something that they treasure watching. It is incredible seeing these two young kids, skinny and unaware of the 5 kids they’re going to have, making promises to each other. Also, I love seeing my moms wedding dress. Poofy sleeves and white lace. Perfection.
