The deep breaths of fresh air. The expansive views. The sense of quiet. Indeed, come to the mountain. This bridal editorial was inspired by the feeling that only a mountaintop can give. Bon Iver’s “Holocene” captures it perfectly:

“And at once I knew I was not magnificent
Strayed above the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
But I could see for miles, miles, miles”

As we planned our shoot, we envisioned bright sunlight and a view clear to the horizon. On a clear day, we might have even glimpsed the ocean. The mountain had other plans. Our brief sunlight quickly turned to rolling mist, dense fog, freezing rain, and snow—all within a two hour window. It was different than we had hoped for but now seeing the photos, we wouldn’t have had it any other way. The mountain taught us an important lesson this day: sometimes the greatest beauty is found in the unexpected.
