Rachel and Bryan have been in my husband and I’s life for a couple years now via the college ministry at our church, and to know them is such a blessing. I’ve had the honor of helping Bryan with their proposal (here), getting to take pictures of them for fun – because they are portfolio goals – let’s be honest, recently taking their engagement photos (below) ;), and NOW getting to look forward to photographing their wedding in January! They are a pair that you could sit and talk with for hours, so I was happy for the opportunity to get to drive out towards Defiance with them for their session and chat along the way. One of my favorite qualities about them is just how much they laugh together. If you can’t tell by the photos below, they are constantly laughing. Most often Rachel is laughing out loud over something Bryan has whispered in her ear… probably in regards to my southern drawl coming out in excitement over their photos, honestly. Or me repetitively telling them to “stop it, ya’ll” or “ohhh my goodness gracious alive.” I apparently go back to my roots when I’m excited about a photo, lol ;) Thank you guys for letting me be a part of your story. I’m seriously so excited to be on the journey, and can’t wait for the big day! 58 days!
