I work with each of my clients to customize a session designed around the things that make them unique. Whether we incorporate their favorite activity or a special detail, each session is one-of-a-kind. Rachel + Eric’s engagement session could not have been more personal and perfect for them.
Not only will they be married next June at Beech Springs Farm, but Rachel’s grandfather also grew up on this property when it was still a working farm. When she and Eric got engaged they knew it’s where they had to tie the knot. I loved getting to experience the property through their eyes while also being able to scout and shoot the best locations for their wedding photos.
Capturing Rachel + Eric’s engagement and wedding is extra special for me. Rachel is the nurse that helped deliver our first little girl, Claire. Fulfilling their wedding photography needs is finally a chance to really repay her for everything she did for me then. As a first time mamma, I had never been through labor and at the time it felt like it was defeating me. She kept me calm and focused and saved me from throwing in the towel and demanding a c-section, something she knew I truly didn’t want.
If you haven’t been to Beech Springs before, it’s a beautiful spot for all types of events whether you’re looking for an indoor rustic barn wedding or an outdoor garden one. Having such versatility in a property provides so many options for your photos. One of my favorite spots was their greenhouse. Surrounded by flowering gardens, the covered pergola area had a little bistro table that was perfect for capturing some intimate shots of Rachel + Eric.
At almost every farm session I’ve done, there’s been a barn cat that likes to join the session. Each little kitty so far has been sweet and kept it’s distance once it came and checked things out. However, this barn kitty was not a fan of photographers on it’s property. It followed us around from location to location even arching its back and hissing at us at one point. It solidified the fact that I’m definitely a dog woman!
Rachel + Eric, thank you for choosing me to capture your engagement session and wedding. You had such an impact on me during one of the most important days in my life and I am truly so excited to be a part of one of yours. Next June cannot come soon enough!
