Rachael is one of my dear friends that I used to go to school with at Cal Poly SLO, and we met in finance class! If someone would have told me at that time that I would be a wedding photographer shooting Rachael’s wedding someday I would have been ridiculously confused and probably laughed in their face. In a nice way.Rachael and I didn’t meet until our last quarter at Cal Poly but we happened to have two classes together: Entrepreneurial Finance and Case Studies in Finance… oh the joys of those classes, ha! We had some mutual friends and hit it off right from the start. At graduation she took a job with Deloitte in Orange County while I took a seemingly insignificant photography internship at Hume Lake Christian Camps… and then when I moved back to Irvine we just picked up right where we left off. Her friendship is SUCH a gift, and Rachael is one of the most caring, giving, warm-hearted friends I’ve ever known. And then this guy Noah came into the picture and getting to watch their relationship grow has been such a blessing. They got engaged on Valentine’s Day in San Diego so we did their engagement pictures in Balboa Park and Coronado Island where he proposed! He’s been so fun to get to know and they just compliment each other PERFECTLY. They are getting married at the Rancho Bernardo Winery in October and I can’t wait!
