Rachel & Kylan, Hartwood Acres Engagement

When I first met Rachel and her mother at our consultation, I knew immediately how much I loved her and her family. I’d followed her on Instagram thereafter and realized we have so much in common. Rachel bakes homemade pies and pasta regularly (I just wish I did this) and loves Gal Meets Glam. Just a few of my fav things to be honest. I’d anticipated meeting Kylan at their engagement session, just knowing how much Rachel and I could commonly share and knowing how much she loved him only to realize Kylan and I basically grew up down the street from one another and it’s likely his dad handed me my diploma when I graduated. Kylan is currently in med school and is equally dedicated to his school and career as he is his relationship with Rachel and watching someone put 100% into each is just so admirable.

It’s funny how God works like that, bringing people into our lives that we can so easily share common ground and relate with. And to be welcomed in to such a beautiful season of their lives is such a beautiful gift. Rachel and Kylan’s love for one another seeps out of their pores and lights them up from the inside out. The love and laughs they shared at the engagement session is just a little taste of the joy their wedding day will be this coming March and I’m so so honored and thrilled to document their best day ever!

Enjoy their beautiful, light filled, summer engagement session at Hartwood Acres (a place special to them) below!<3

Hannah, Alex & baby S

Hannah & Alex are two of the most light-hearted souls and I could not be more excited for the two of them as they prepare to welcome their baby boy into the world at the beginning of May!

H&A also have hearts of gold and met white serving as EMT’s (I know this bc I had the honor of second shooting their wedding, cue all of the tears). Alex is in grad school and I’d never be able to tell you in a million years what it’s for because its way over my head. The footprint they’ve laid down for the son, is a big one to fill, but I have without a doubt, he’ll shine bright, just like his parents do!<3 I can’t wait to meet you little one!
