Rachel + Mike | Wedding Preview

This is Rachel & Mike’s wedding. You might remember them from their engagement session that we photographed back in June in Nashville. Along with Heather & Glynn in Indiana – Rachel & Mike were one of the first people to take a chance on us – I think we had only photographed 2 weddings (Haley & Chris, Jenn & Justin) when they sent us their signed contract and deposit.

Although they may have been impressed by those two first weddings – I think to some degree our ‘early adopters’ were taking a chance on the fact that Leah and I were improving – and they knew that by the time their wedding rolled around, we’d have many more weddings under our belts – and not just local weddings – out of state weddings in places like Indiana and Massachusetts.

Having lived in Phoenix, Az. for most of my life – I never thought I’d spend as much time in Tennessee as I have over the past year – of course, it’s not so bad when you don’t take the main highways and the sky opens up to forever.

Something we especially enjoy is the challenge of trying to also capture the atmosphere and general feeling of the location on that day. I’ve said it before – but there’s a difference between a wedding in Boston on a clear day, an overcast and raining Savannah, or a perfect afternoon in Smithville, Tennessee – and the wedding photos should reflect that.

The light just feels different.

Thank you Rachel & Mike.

How They Met:

We met on a blind date in the fall of ’07, which was set up by two of our friends. We went out twice, realized the timing just wasn’t right and let several months pass by with no contact.  Then, upon a chance (or not so chance) meeting at a local restaurant, we decided to try hanging out again.  From that point forward (with only a few minor speedbumps:) it was love. It became a very long-distance love, but despite this, neither of us would trade the path that led us here for an easier one.

About Megan & Josh

They began dating in the summer of 2008, a few weeks before Megan left to travel to Africa for a month. Once home, they had only a few weeks together before Megan moved to Denver for her first year of grad school. Somehow they made it work with 2 thousand miles between them. They have now decreased those miles to 60, with Josh living in Macon and Megan in Atlanta. As they celebrate their wedding on May 15th, they will also be celebrating the beginning of an exciting time…actually getting to live in the same city for longer than a Christmas break!
