Oh, where do I even begin with these two.
Rachel and Chad were my roomies along with Ms. Emily Bowen during our senior year of college. Chad was the lone guy amongst us ladies and we had so many good times living together. I was the early bird with night owls (for the most part) and laughter/inappropriate jokes was a way of life. Emily, Chad and Rachel had lived together sophomore year, so I was the new one in the bunch, but I am so thankful I got to live with all of them ..it was the perfect way to spend our senior year.
Well, it was the running joke that Rachel and Chad would marry one day, but those claims were quickly put down by the two any time it was mentioned. Low and behold…shortly after we all graduated, the two became a couple. Jeremy and I were equally shocked and not surprised at all. That sounds impossible, but it’s true.
The two came to Nashville in the spring and it was so fun to see them together, it was just too good to be true. Of course, Jeremy and I had to joke about Chad putting a ring on it, and well, while Rachel was out of the room, he showed us a picture of that gorgeous ring you see below! We felt like we had unlocked Fort Knox…we just could not wait to see when he would propose!
As you can see, the rest is history and I am just so excited for Chad + Rachel! Plus, I get the honor of shooting their wedding!
For their engagement session, we decided to head to Georgetown while I was in VA for a wedding and it was the perfect choice. I was just in love with Georgetown and I’m so sad I can’t shoot their more often. I feel as if I could do so many shoots there without repeating the same location. The culture and architecture of Georgetown is just gorgeous! Throw in an amazing couple, and well, it was an amazing session!
Congratulations Chad + Rachel! I can’t wait to see you soon and celebrate your wedding day with you next year!
