Casey and Tim decided to travel to Europe for their seventh anniversary, and they found the perfect spot for an amazing photo session in the surrounding mountains near Ellmau in Austria’s Tyrol Valley. A long hike yielded these panoramic views, and luckily Emily March was along for the ride to capture all the beauty. More from Emily below on the day, but first these gorgeous images.

“I’m married to Tim’s younger brother, and this amazing couple has been a beautiful example of sacrificial and unconditional love. To celebrate their 7th anniversary, we decided to have a little mini session while traveling through Germany and Austria earlier this summer with family. As we explored the little town of Ellmau, I looked up and saw this adorable chapel sitting on the top of a hill just behind the town. My first thought was ‘We absolutely have to do their pictures up there.’ My second thought was ‘How in the world do we get there?’

Well, one evening while the rest of the family watched the USA vs. Germany World Cup match, we hiked the very long, winding path up to the chapel. We may have hopped a fence or two to get there, but the breathtaking view at the top was worth it. I made a little bouquet for Casey from wildflowers I picked during our hike, and we took pictures as the golden sun set across the Tyrol Valley. Tim and Casey live in Colorado, so the giant Wilder Kaiser mountains in the background speak to their love of the outdoors. It was magnificent, and before we knew it, over an hour had gone by. Honking car horns and cheers down in Ellmau signaled the German victory, so we headed back down the trail. I, of course, was picking flowers and taking pictures the whole way down.”
