Sometimes you travel to a place and feel like you’ve stepped into heaven. That my friends, is what The Azores, Portugal is. These 8 tiny islands (as well as though 8 tiny Islands in the Pacific) have a special place in my heart. I’ve never seen bluer lakes, greener grass, and blacker black sand beaches. My best friends and I traveled to The Azores and I had the privilege of taking anniversary-inspired pictures of them on top of Lagoa do Fogo. Jess and Jon have such a natural kind of love. Silly, wholesome, committed, and intimate. I’ve watched their relationship grow since we all met 6 years ago in college. Their first year of marriage has only made them more beautiful and mature in their love and I’m just so happy for them. Love you guys!
