Rachel told me that she’s been following us since xanga days and that we were the one non-negotiable aspect for her wedding, so one of her first calls after the proposal was to us. She had us at xanga. During our first face-to-face meeting, Lisa popped by to say hi because she saw me in passing, and Rachel immediately recognized her from our blog. Love that!
Rachel and Sam are high school sweethearts so they’ve been dating for a very long time, but they still look at each other and treat each other like they just started dating. Something every couple could learn from. A beautiful couple with hearts of gold, and I would go as far to say that Sam is one of the kindest guys I’ve ever met.
For the second part of their session, I was so excited that they chose to have it on the ferry. In the middle of shooting, the captain’s voice came over the loudspeaker and said, “We have a whale siting on the port side of the boat.” And there they were – a mommy and baby Orca whale! A passenger told me that she rides that same ferry everyday and she’s never seen whales before. Even H and I go on the ferry often to visit his parents and we’ve never seen them either. Another passenger shared with everybody how he’s paid to go whale watching before and didn’t even see them. It was one of those bliss moments straight out of a movie with lots of oohs and aahs. So incredible.
