Are these anniversary portraits of Elisa and Craig not the most beautiful images you’ve seen of a couple in a love? With dappled sunlight filtering through the trees and the faded prairie grass, it seems like the perfect setting for an anniversary session. Read on for more of the sweet story of how this couple found each other:

“I don’t think either one of us expected to meet in such a unique way. In 2013 my husband, Craig, and I met on Instagram, as crazy as that sounds. He was living in Los Angeles at the time and I was interning in New York, NY.  We had one mutual acquaintance on Instagram, and from the follow, to likes, to the comments, our interest grew. In fact,  still have the screenshot of our first exchange.  After texting turned into phone calls and phone calls turned into, what we called, “FaceTime dates”, Craig flew from Los Angeles to NYC to meet me in person and take me on our first real date.

 That weekend was its’ own fairytale. Without a dull moment, we spent our days exploring museums, going to a Mets baseball game, kayaking on the Hudson River and eating our way through the Big Apple. Craig asked me that weekend to be his girlfriend.  I would later find out that in moment he knew he was going to marry me. After a year of dating 3000 miles apart, I finished school and moved to Los Angeles to be with him. Our long-distance journey to marriage has given us such beautiful perspective, because we now know that simply being in each other’s company is a blessing to treasure each day we are together.”
