As I write this, Erica and Nik are more than 1,500 miles away in Colorado — and I miss them so much already. Their trips to Virginia are never long enough, but thankfully we had plenty of time to catch up and take some gorgeous photographs.
As a small ode to their beautiful Rockies and adventurous spirits, I planned an evening session on Roanoke Mountain (I know, totally incomparable to what they're used to in Colorado) and along the Blue Ridge Parkway. As you can see, the evening glow was nothing short of magical.
Erica met Nik almost three years ago while visiting a college roommate in Denver. She'd been thinking about making Colorado her home and wanted to get a feel for the place. Two months later — a few days before New Year's Eve — she packed up her car and traded the Blue Ridge Mountains for the Rockies. She and Nik started dating shortly after.
"I knew he was going to be a part of my life once I moved there," Erica told me. (Aww!)
It's so easy to see these two were made for each other. I love that their silly, funny personalities only magnify when they're together. Can't wait to see what life brings them!
