Whimsical Sunset Engagement Shoot Monday, December 12, 2011 ~ 8:18 a.m.

In my line of work, I'm lucky enough to connect with some really talented people in the wedding industry. Rachel is definitely one of these people. I smile whenever I get an email, a comment, anything from her, really - for this reason, I follow her photography blog pretty closely. Now, I've only "met" Rachel online, but I imagine that she's a lot like this engagement shoot of hers that I'm featuring today - creative, bright and just peachy! :)

Take Rachel and her camera, a bunch of pastel colored balloons, a tandem bicycle and a blanket out into the middle of the nowhere, and you'd never guess that you'd end up with something that is as meaningful as it is romantic as it is offbeat. Oh, and the sunset is UNREAL. Especially in the last two photos!

It would be nearly impossible to forget the featured bride and groom-to be, Brittany and Andrew....they make a super cute couple, don't they? It seems only natural then that they met at summer camp, enjoy the great outdoors and country music, and they are currently working their way through trying all of the Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors. I actually giggled when I read how Brittany described Andrew here..."We laugh a lot and are weird together...I'm convinced that Andrew is the most patient person in the world and I have literally never seen him legitimately angry..." (my hubby's like that too! =P) Oh, and "[He] makes bomb hot wings," she says. They're both excited to be getting married next August on a ranch down in Southern California.

Thank you so much for the feature, Sarah! Maybe we'll get the chance to officially "meet" one of these days. :)
