Brandon and Rachel » Engagement

It was just such an awesome pleasure for us to meet Brandon and Rachel in Hawaii.  They are such an amazing couple. Full of life. Fun to be around. Extremely in love.  Cool as all get out.  They’re just beautiful people inside and out.  I just feel like we became fast friends with them and we miss them like crazy already.  Can’t believe they’re 11 hours (flying time) away.  It’s just crazy to think about.  Oh man… I’m going to quit writing this paragraph because it’s just making me wish I had a time machine to travel back two weeks.

Meet Brandon. He is our friend Leigh’s nephew and moved to Hawaii about a year ago to become the golf pro at the Mauna Kea golf resort.

Meet Rachel. She’s the super sweet girl who decided to move half way around the world because of love.  Someone should write a book (or movie) about these two.

I was absolutely thrilled they wanted me to photograph them. Two beautiful people in one the most beautiful places on earth? Sign me up.  They were awesome in front of the camera and I just loved working with them. We had so much fun on this photoshoot that I was on an emotional high for the longest time!

No more talking!  Photos!  Check these two out!



We found a black sand beach! They were watching a sea turtle bob his head up and down out of the ocean.



Love these trees! Love this photo!



Side note: I had so much trouble picking out my favorite images to blog. Seriously… every single photo is amazing with these two in it!

I just want to apologize to Brandon and Rachel. I’m from Tennessee. I had NO idea how painful it was to get your jeans full of sand. It’s like walking around wearing sandpaper… literally!  But you’ve got to admit though… these pics made it totally worth it! Am I not right!?




Blow this image up large… now.


How amazing is this couple!?  I just want to comment on ALL of the photos above but will just let the pics speak for themselves.

Brandon and Rachel:  It was just so amazing meeting you guys. Cannot express to you how much I loved working with you two.  Heather and I want to see you both again so badly! We consider you our newest friends!

What other’s are saying

Something subtle, yet powerful, happens when I look at Bo. There’s an energy present that is very real and felt only between the two of us. It is the connection we have with each other, embodying all that brought us together and the love we share. I imagine that most people assume it’s there, but no one actually looks for it. Except you. Instead of taking pictures of the two of us, you capture what is between us. It is a profound gift that you have, Rich, to catch meaning in a glance or love in a touch. Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us. - Rebekah Hughes
