Rachel and Ryan | New Harmony, IN

A New Harmony Engagement Session | Rachel and Ryan 051.jpg

With wedding season in full force, I feel like we have been busy little worker bees going nonstop. Through all of the busyness in our sometimes chaotic lives, I still find myself stopping for seconds at a time to bask in the fact that this is our life! We work with the BEST clients doing our legit DREAM job! We are so stinking blessed to live this life and although, we are busy, our hearts are SOOOOO FULL. Our clients fill our lives with so much joy and Rachel and Ryan are no exception.

Rachel and Ryan are probably take the cake as one of our favorite engagement sessions ever. I mean just look at them — how could you not love them?! We got to venture to the New Harmony, Indiana area for their session and we were able to explore and enjoy alllllll the magic that New Harmony has to offer all while laughing until our stomachs hurt with these two. New Harmony is a pleasant and quaint little town on other side of Evansville. The town is full of so much ornate character and is one of those cute little towns out of the movies, for real! (It never fails, but when we are in the area, we always pull up Zillow looking for our dream home!! LOL) It’s one of those dreamy places where you WANT to live!

So, add in Rachel & Ryan to the New Harmony scene and we were pumped!! We were so so so excited to hang with them and take their pictures! We walked all across town finding the best places for all the magical light! The two of them were so incredibly lovely together. Rachel would giggle at Ryan in the sweetest of ways and he would get a sparkling look in his eye — ahhhh, so sweet!! Their outfits were unbelievable (B&B Bride Guide, for the win!!!) They both were just so dapper and well-dressed. These pictures speak for themselves!! When I think of beautiful people inside and out, I first think of Rachel and Ryan! We feel so lucky to be able to love and serve them!

We had so much fun shooting their engagement session so we can only imagine what fun is to come at their wedding. We cannot wait to celebrate their January 2020 wedding with them in New Harmony!!  Woo woo!!
