BAH! Heart heart heart heart. These two are really, really special. Two of the sweetest people you will ever meet. Michael (Mookie) is the younger brother of my dear friend, Katie. You might remember Katie from such episodes as she got married. He’s crazy creative, just like big sissy. I was so excited when I heard that he proposed to his gorgeous, lovely, Rachel over the holidays with 80 handmade cranes strung across an old chapel. No. Big. Deal. Yeah.
It was a chilly day in Spokane with no sun in sight. We started our session playing around in quite possibly the most amazing store on the planet, Artemis. (Run there now). Rachel and Mike finally had to drag me out of there. Then we just mosied the streets for a bit before heading out to Rachel’s mom’s house on the Spokane river. On the way there we stopped to shoot in a field. All of the sudden a herd of buffalo ran across up to the fence. GO GO GO. Hurry. To the fence. Um I die. Are you kidding me? Most amazing happenstance ever perhaps? We got to use some of the cranes that he proposed with. While we were hanging them I realized they were made from love notes that these two crazy cats had written one another through the course of their relationship. How are these two real?
You two make me melt inside. I adore you both and can’t wait for your special day this summer!
