Rachel & Mervin : Engagement

I had this blog post scheduled to go up on Wednesday… as we slow down for the year, we’ll be getting more into 3 day a week posting than my more beefy schedule. But it’s my cousin’s engagement pictures, and apparently, I’m not as immune to her anxious pleading as I am to everyone else. I just can’t help it! Rachel is still 4 years old in my eyes, running around with my sister and I begging to play mermaids. I can’t believe she’s getting married, but at the same time, I’m so very proud of her. She’s grown into a gorgeous woman, and it’s so clear to see after just a little while that she & Mervin are perfect for one another. Mack and I were so honored that they asked us to photograph their special day next summer, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time running around the countryside for this engagement session last week. If these portraits are any indication, their wedding is going to be FULL of beautiful moments we’re already excited to capture. 🙂

Enjoy just a few of my favorites!


This next spot was a bit of a hike to get to, but oh man was it worth it.




That. Sun. OMG.


We love you, Rachel & Mervin! We’re so excited for you and the amazing changes headed your way. Can’t wait for June! 🙂

    Wow… Just wow! These are beautiful! Chelsea, Mack, you guys are so amazing. This is such a crazy and wonderful time for Mervin and I. Everything has been going by so quickly, and it’s easy to get caught up in all the wedding planning/work/school. It’s sometimes hard to take the time to stop and think about how truly blessed and excited we are to be engaged. This photo shoot gave us a chance to do that. I can’t wait to see what blessings God has in store for us at our wedding, and I’m so glad that you will be there with us to capture it all! Thanks for being such wonderful family, friends, and photographers!!!!
