When your bride is also an entrepreneur, there’s a special connection that happens! Not to mention the fact that we went to the same high school and grew up in the same city. Rachael is the owner of the Local Squirrel, the most adorable gift shop you’ve ever seen. She and her fiancé Jesse run the shop together, and goodness they are so adorable. He hangs the art and helps keep things running behind the scenes, and Rachael has the eye for the gifts, the customer service, and leads her team to run the shop.
We began their session at Rachael’s family home. Their back yard was like an enchanted garden that went on and on… it was so beautiful. I felt like I was in a photographer’s dream! After taking those beautiful, natural images, we headed over to the Local Squirrel in Cameron Village to capture the fun atmosphere of this shop they’ve poured their hearts into.
I loved getting to know Jesse at this session, seeing how he is the perfect compliment to Rachael. He’s such a gentleman, and in the short time we were together, I saw things in him that made me realize just how perfect they were for each other. He’s kind hearted, strong, a hard worker, honest, and an unwavering support to Rachael and her dreams. Their beautiful mountain wedding will take place this fall, and I cannot wait to capture it!
