Seven years ago I was scheduled to photograph a wedding, when the bride called me and asked if a young girl at their church could photograph with me since she was interested in photography. I met her day of the wedding, she was darling and sweet and definitely working hard at what she wanted, even as a young teen. We’ve remained friends since, working weddings together, having great conversations and road trips. Rachel is a girl with the brightest smile and a heart of gold, and i’ve loved seeing her become the incredible artist she is today.
It was an honor being part of Rachel and Stewarts day. Their wedding was held at a farm in central Ohio, during one of the first snowfalls of the season. Her dress, hair and makeup all done by her close friends, flower arrangements and cake by the bride herself, choreographed dances, breakfast for dinner, loads of dancing and heat lamps to keep everyone cozy, and a whole lotta love for the bride and groom.
