Rachael and Ryan are the kind of couple who warm your heart with their laughter and joy-filled spirit! When we were planning their engagement session, I mentioned doing a sunrise session. For photographers, we love these sessions, but it can be a tough sell to our clients since that means not only do they need to be ready at 5:30 AM, but they have to look ready! :) Rachael and Ryan didn't flinch at the logistics. They responded with "We work at Chick-fil-A and Panera, 5:30 AM is no big deal." We also did another session at sunset, including a row boat!
I had recently taken my family to Beck Brothers Blueberry Farm, and I was struck with inspiration! Thankfully, they were okay with us coming to their property so early. We made our plan, which of course involved meeting at Starbucks. We got to the farm about 20 minutes before sunrise and goofed off a little. Once the sunrise started, I was giddy. It was a gorgeously perfect sunrise! The clouds were just right, the light was stunning, and there was a bit of fog! The only problem were the spiders. There were many! :)
Thank you Ryan and Rachael for being so wonderful to work with! You two are an adorable couple!
