Rachel + Jamil are yet another couple that I felt very honored to be chosen as their photographer. Photos have played such an important role in their relationship, so I knew these had to be special. In fact Jamil's super sweet proposal involved sending Rachel a photo of them every week for a year. Starting as her birthday present, and ending with a proposal. She filled up one album with those photos and at the proposal he gave her a blank album to start the next chapter of their lives together, and to fill with new memories. Just too sweet!
When the time came for their Harkness Park engagement photos, the weather was looking kind of sketchy. They were all in for still going through with it though! Their first date had some heavy downpours so they thought it would actually be fun if it rained! (seriously how do I keep getting so lucky with these amazing, adventurous, up-for-anything couples?!) On that date, Rachel lost her flip flop in the flash flooding and Jamil actually rescued it all Cinderella style. I love that story. Photos and fairytales, what every good relationship is made of ;) Rachel + Jamil have already been doing the long distance thing off and on again for a while, with job changes and moves and all sorts of things, but I can't wait to see what the two of them accomplish when they get to be in the same place at the same time!!
I truly loved spending the day with Rachel + Jamil, crafting their engagement photos at Harkness Park. They did not lose those bright smiles the entire time, and their laughter and love just shone through. Congrats you two, enjoy every day leading up to your amazing wedding!! Here are just a few of my faves from the day ;)
