in case you missed the hilarity of rachael & billy’s photobooth- do yourself a favor and click here! it really is only fitting that we posted the fun and the silly before we blogged about rachael & billy’s whole wedding day beacuse after spending just one second with them you realize that they really are all about fun. when they’re together they laugh so hard that their eyes crinkle up and sparkle as they look at one another. we had dinner with them just a couple of weeks before their wedding and we talked about all kinds of things- photography, pets, marriage, family- lots of serious sounding things- but we found ourselves constantly smiling and laughing through every conversation. :) it’s so wonderful to know these two!
to back up a little, i met rachael in high school- she was just one year ahead of me and, if i remember correctly, i met her my very first day of school! at dinner we relived some moments i’d completely blocked out of my memory- and together we tried to explain them to matt through our laughter. :) we played soccer together, doodled through the same statistics class and were reprimanded by the same speech and debate coach (you see why i blocked those moments out completely, right??). but what i remember most about rachael from high school is just how real she was with everyone- she was kind and honest and fun and funny. she’s always been surrounded by a wonderful group of friends and when i showed up on her wedding day i was happy to see (but not at all surprised!) that they’ve all stayed really close. it made for a fun and comfortable day- and some awesome images!
billy and his family are greek orthodox and his mom made sure they incorporated some special greek traditions into their wedding day- everyone had fun with it!
matt and i couldn’t help but laugh when we saw the next two images taken at almost the same time while we were shooting separately- clearly our 5 year anniversary is approaching and we’re becoming more and more alike! ;)
see what i mean about the smiling and the sparkling eyes?? it makes me tear up to see a groom so happy:
the sun couldn’t have been more perfect as we stole rachael & billy away for a few couple portraits- like a dream:
pretty sure these two will have exactly this much fun every day for the rest of their lives, so sweet!
