Hudson + Rachael: Married

Every couple has their own vibe - it's part of the reason I love meeting with a bride and groom before the ceremony, to see them in their natural habitat, and to figure out the way they interact. Watching Rachael and Hudson, it was clear that they took care of each other, and anyone who crossed their path. This caring extended all the way through their wedding day in such a beautiful way, and it made being a part of their day such a joy and honor.

A quiet place can be hard to find. Sometimes under-the-table methods are necessary. :)

Rachael's little sister got a little teary during bridal portraits. Then I got VERY teary. This job is awesome for keeping a person's tear ducts healthy.

"Holy moly we just got married" faces are a personal favorite.

I hope someday I'm lucky enough to have a mother-in-law like Sylvia. :)

He wanted a photo of Rachael, because he, "knows a good shot when he sees one".

Rachael found honeysuckles, and spontaneously gave me one of my favorite moments from the whole wedding. :)
