Date night doesn’t have to stop just because you’ve been an item for a while… or even because you’re married!
After their first year of marriage, photographer Jamie Beck and her husband, Kevin Burg, realized how important it is to keep dating your partner. Accordingly, they’ve been making an effort to keep growing, learning, and discovering together—in short, staying very much in love.
Our buddies at HowAboutWe don’t just connect singles together for awesome dates; they can also help couples brainstorm and plan amazing date ideas, too. Jamie and Kevin have been using HowAboutWe Concierge and their fabulous planning experts to book special, one-of-a-kind dates; Jamie has been chronicling their experiences on her blog, Ann Street Studio (named for their photography studio in New York City).
Since Jamie and Kevin just bought their first car, they decided that they wanted to try going on a date that would take them outside the city. So they headed off to the Hudson River Valley to become aeronauts for the day—and the photos from their hot air balloon adventure are gorgeous!
Writes Jamie, “I was so amazed at the landscape from this angle. No smudgy airplane window to try to shoot from, totally clear horizon, the feel of the morning sun on my face and the heat from the flames keeping us warm on this brisk autumn morning. We could look at life from a new perspective.”
LOVE. I’m not wild about heights (something I never remember until I’m already way up in the air), but these pics are enough to make me want to spirit my SO away for a sky-high adventure of our own.
Take a look at more of Jamie’s incredible photos from their excursion—and get some details on what else they did with their day—here. While you’re at it, you can sign up for HowAboutWe for Couples at their website.
