Rachel & Nick’s Engagement!

Happy Wednesday, friends!! I am feeling refreshed after a beautiful weekend in the Adirondacks with my husband, and feel great about catching up on blogging this week!  I’ve been photographing so many beautiful sessions and weddings this past month, and feel so grateful to have all these amazing couples :)

Rachel and Nick are amazing!!  When I first met Rachel, I loved that she is a photographer as well (she is a teacher full time, and also has a business photographing families and newborns!)  Connecting with other photographers is so much fun because I love the passion they bring into capturing their important moments and thinking through every detail!

These two have such a fun story, too!  They met online and went on their first date when Nick was in town, right after Easter dinner!  They left their families and went out and chatted for hours, and the connection was there from the start :)  Now they are starting their life together in Buffalo, and are excited to get married next spring at Best View Barn!

We went to Beaver Lake Nature Center for photographs, because Rachel went there last year and just loved the scenery!  I was amazed too and it really is so dreamy for a photographer!  Not only were the woodland trails beautiful and the light that came through, but the row of pine trees covered in greenery is a photographer’s PARADISE!  In every space the love that Rachel and Nick have for each other came through, as well as how much fun they have together!

It’s truly a joy getting to know these two and I can’t wait to capture their wedding next spring!  I hope you enjoy their beautiful story and are as inspired by these photographs as I am!
