Rachel & Cary grew up in the same city, but didn’t discover each other until they met through Match.com. Cary proposed during a birthday party he had thrown for Rachel with their family and friends. He had put together a video montage of pictures and video snippets of their last year together and played it for the group and his lovely bride. When the video reached its end Cary surprised Rachel with a marriage proposal. They are set to be married this summer at Benson winery in Lake Chelan. Congratulations you two!
Here are IJ Photo’s comments on the couple and their engagement session:
Rachel and Cary have a perfect romance. They are tender and sweet to each other and their love naturally shows in all of their portraits. Our session took place at the Mukilteo Lighthouse park in Mukilteo, WA. This lovely historic park lent it’s own air of romance to our images. Cary brought a bouquet of tulips for his bride as a special gift (and a perfect prop!) Additionally we used antique keys, a treasure chest and sea shells to play up the ocean theme.
