rachel + colin | chapel hill, n.c. engagement

Well, I'm not sure where to begin with this blog post because Rachel + Colin are such a sweet couple to work with. I met this duo through mutual dental school friends and an epic game of Cards Against Humanity. Thankfully my sense of humor didn't scare them away. As dental school progressed, this endearing couple's relationship followed as Rachel + Colin stuck to each other's sides through board exams, endless hours of studying, and life challenges making them such a strong and wholeheartedly faithful couple.

While I met this lovely duo through mutual friends, their story begins the same way. Rachel was good friends with Colin's roommate the summer after college graduation. Summer is always met with blockbuster movies + hours spent soaking in the chlorine and sunshine. Colin was going to see Batman with a good friend, and when he arrived to pick his friend up, he met Rachel. Rachel then invited him to the pool the next day and now their getting hitched! 

For their engagement session, Rachel wanted something less traditional than an Old Well shoot, so we met out at Jordan Lake at sunrise, then hiked over to Merritt's Pasture for a champagne picnic with their playful puppy, Brody. We could not have asked for a more beautiful June day--glassy waters, cool breezes, a field of wildflowers. and sticks for Brody to munch on! 

Rachel + Colin, you are such wonderful people and I'm happy to have you as clients + as friends! Your love is glowing and your sweetness couldn't help but seep into my soul during our session.  You two have a special love that is undeniable and I couldn't be more honored or blessed to photograph it and create your family heirlooms! Here's to April!
