The girls lined up close together, eagerly anticipating the bouquet toss at Renee’s wedding. I’ve never seen a human jump as high as these girls did when those flowers flew. And as I captured this wonderfully fun moment, I noticed the bouquet wasn’t sticking with one girl. It was being cleverly tossed around like a game of hot potato until Rachel caught it. They knew she was next, and it was only right that she should take home the traditional prize.
Shortly thereafter, Robert proposed to her on top of a mountain. I was so glad when Rachel got in touch with me about shooting her wedding next May in Kansas City. These two are so much fun, and I loved exploring the woods with them and capturing their outdoor engagement photos.
This is how we started. Rachel turned up some music on her phone, hopped on Rob’s back, and we started exploring.
They were both worried about Rob’s “awkward” smile when posing for the camera, but I think Rachel knew how to get a genuine one out of him.
It was so much fun watching Rob pick Rachel up and swing her around. These two are just so cute together.
Rachel, you are such a natural beauty. Your smile and laughter is infectious!
Can’t you just feel their love and playfulness in these? Feel free to leave your congrats in the comments below! And be sure to “like” Stephanie Dawn Photography on Facebook to see their upcoming wedding photos!
