Michael & Rachel | Walker’s Overlook

April 6, 2016

The first time I met with Michael and Rachel, for their consultation, I felt like we were close friends who knew each other for years and years. They are two of the sweetest, most genuine, people you will ever meet! I absolutely loved not only being their photographer, but also just hanging out with them. They’re a couple who are both undeniably in love with each other, and individually in love with their Savior.

One of my favorite moments of their wedding was when Rachel’s maid of honor and good friend gave her speech during their reception. Before their wedding day she had asked both Michael and Rachel separately what their favorite thing about each was, and here were their answers –

“The number one thing that I love about Michael is that his heart is for Jesus, and everything that I love about Michael is because of Jesus in him. – Rachel

“The number on thing I love about Rachel is how she shows the joy of the Lord.” – Michael

I love that they answered that question almost identically! And how true those statements are about each of them. It was truly a joy to photograph their day, to spend time with their friends and family, and to document the love and joy that they share!

I also absolutely love every time I have the opportunity to photograph at Walker’s Overlook, as a venue it is not only a beautiful space with a ton of options photographically but it’s also incredibly accommodating to their vendors. The light at golden hour there is nothing short of dreamy! Some of my favorite images from Michael and Rachel’s wedding were in that gorgeous golden light coming over the drive at Walker’s Overlook, just before they joined their reception after their ceremony. Ahhh what a lovely day, with lovely light, but most noticeably with lovely people!

We were totally comfortable with Mary, she was completely sweet and patient with all of us. Somehow she made us look flawless too! Mary Brunst is truly gifted by God and was made to create beautiful works of art with photography. If we got another chance and had to pick ANYONE to capture our day- we would pick Mary Brunst over and over again. She is a joy to work with, her laughter is contagious and we just adore her. – Rachel
