RACHEL & MIKEItasca Country Club Wedding

Rachel and Mike are married!!!

 

Aside from a small storm (well, a monsoon, actually) that blew through just after their ceremony, the day was absolute perfection.

 

And even with the unexpected weather, we still managed to get in some portraits in the magical, post-rain light.

 

Best wishes, R+M! Thanks for inviting me to capture your day!

 

(And thanks, too, to the amazing Maggie Wright for second shooting with me!)
