Rachel and John are amazing: Fun. Easygoing. Gorgeous. Hilarious. From Rachel’s fiery red hair and easy smile to John’s fear of bare feet and subsequent affinity for black socks, these two make the most perfect pair. They are getting married in a few short weeks on the beautiful beaches of Jamaica, and asked if I was available to shoot both a traditional engagement session, followed by a wedding-esque shoot, before they elope. I did not hesitate with my affirmative response. In fact, I’m pretty sure it was an emphatic “YES!” followed by thirty exclamation points. Give or take. The sessions took place in the steamy 104 degree afternoon heat at their (brand new) cabin in an itty bitty town about an hour from Austin. We found some dreamy light, and they more than obliged when I screamed and ordered them out of the car! There’s this light! Right there!! Squeeeee!! Here are some of my favorites:
I love you both, and am so delighted to call you friends.
Save travels to Jamaica and a (very) early, emphatic, squealing congratulations!
Also, special thanks to Parkcrest Floral for Rachel’s amazing bouquet and the matching boutonniere.
