I am always so grateful when I get to spend time with a couple before their wedding day taking photos in the mountains. Getting to spend time with Rachel & Bryan makes me even more excited about their wedding day. They are a joy to photograph. I always love when couples find ways to personalize their engagement portraits and I can think of no better way than including their dog Millie. Millie tried to steal the show with her adorable smile. I always suggest that couples bring a pop of colour to include in their engagement portraits to stand out against the mountains. Rachel & Bryan did even better with their choice to bring along a blanket from their travels together where Bryan proposed. I loved getting to include something from their proposal trip in their engagement portraits. It was a beautiful inspiring morning in the mountains. I can't wait to meet up in the mountains again for their wedding in October.
