It is always such an honor to be asked to photograph a wedding for the same family again, especially one as awesome as the Reise’s! Mitch and Rachel’s beautiful wedding day started at his mom’s house. I remember their home being gorgeous when I photographed Mitch’s sister’s wedding there a few years back. Their mom is a master gardener and has the most beautiful landscaping and flowers! It is a photographer’s dream for a wedding!
The image below is Rachel reading a letter from Mitch moments before they were to see each other for the first time. I love how you can see him waiting for her outside.
Many times the bride and groom say their favorite part of the day is the first time they see each other. This was true for Rachel. She said,
“My favorite moment from the wedding was the first look. I felt like there were so many things going on the day of the wedding but in that moment it really hit me that we would be spending the rest of our lives together.”
I could not have asked for better weather for their wedding! The overcast skies gave us amazing lighting for pictures on the lake! It was so romantic!
And there was even a daisy field! Seriously, it could not have been a better day!
Time for the breathtaking golden hour pictures! S*T*U*N*N*I*N*G!
Rachel and Mitch, thank you for giving me such a beautiful and sweet day to photograph! You two and your families are such a pleasure to be around! I’m so excited for you to see the rest of your images!
