I met with Rachel & James at Austin T. Blakeslee Natural Area on a beautiful afternoon in June. Rachel mentioned that a woodsy & rustic scenery for their engagement photos would go perfectly with the theme of their upcoming wedding in 2021. They were up for the hike to the rushing waters and were champs through some mud & unsteady pathways. The nearby river, high trees, & lush greenery made for a perfect evening as golden light peeked through the trees like some type of fairy tale! Rachel & James mentioned that they never had photos done before but the love they share & their warm personalities were radiating. It was so amazing getting to know them through our walk – learning about their wonderful journey together, 6 month old puppy, careers, favorite shows & future aspirations.By the end of the session, Rachel & I were bonding over Gilmore Girls episodes and future puppy play dates! I’m so excited to capture more of their journey on their wedding day.
