Rachel and Joe were such a gift to work with for our inspiration photoshoot. I could say so many things about how beautiful they are together, how their chemistry is so easy and genuine, and how adorable they are; yet, I find myself reflecting on the things that I could not fully capture with my camera. They were married just 2 months before at a gorgeous venue in the Rockies, and many of the vendors that participated in this shoot were also vendors who served at their wedding in September. I was so honored to work with a couple that loved each other so fiercely, and who put everyone else at ease around them. They have such a magnetism about them that I found myself gravitating towards them throughout the shoot just for simple conversation or a laugh. The way Joe’s eyes have this tiny spark in them when his gaze shifted from my lense to Rachel’s face isn’t something that can be taught. That spark is a deep well of love that he has for his bride, and I saw that same love reflected in Rachel’s smile of assurance and comfort when he looked at her. They are quite the adventurous couple, and like so many other young couples chose Colorado to be the backdrop for their love story. Rachel works in the fashion industry, and her unique taste was such a big part of the outfits she wore during our shoot. One of the gowns was her own gown from her wedding. The other two outfits she hand selected and purchased just for this shoot. Her creative looks complimented Joe’s western bohemian inspired attire from his peacock feather bow tie to his weather cowboy boots. They loved working with our handsome horse models, and they were troopers in the chilly November air. Also, they happen to own the cutest rabbit in the world. We toasted the end of a fabulous shoot with mimosas and crepes provided by our awesome vendors. I am overwhelmed with gratitude that we were able to work with Rachel and Joe for our shoot. I hope they loved getting to celebrate their love again in front of the camera just 2 months after their own wedding.
