Great Sand Dunes National Park Vow Renewal
Where can I begin? 2020 has been insane, to say the least. With everything going on in the world this vow renewal session at the Great Sand Dunes National Park right outside of Alamosa Colorado was a light-no a full BEAM of sunshine in this crazy year. Mia and Fermin celebrated their first year of marriage back in March and we planned to do a sunrise session in the Valley of Fire outside of Las Vegas in Nevada (if you've never been there....go, just go). We had everything ready to go and then COVID came crashing down on us and instead of dancing in the desert we were forced to quarantine at home for months! What was originally the biggest bummer turned out to be the biggest blessing. I've always wanted to adventure in the Sand Dunes and when Mia and I talked she decided that she and Fermin would visit Colorado and explore the state. What better place to show them than the Great Sand Dunes National Park? After months of patience and pivoting, we found ourselves waking up at 3 am on a cool morning in August to adventure in the dunes. Mia wore a moody maroon tulle skirt that felt like the perfect mix of boho and Saharan vibes. They walked barefoot in the sand, read their vows to each other, and danced to their favorite songs. It was everything I could have asked for and more and if you ask Mia and Fermin, they'd say the same!
