They were both going to a concert with friends. But didn’t know the other even existed. Yet. Little did they know that their lives were about to change….

Rachel and Wayne hit it off right away. They became fast friends and afterwards started texting and chatting on the phone. They couldn’t get enough of talking. One night Rachel invited a group of friends over (including Wayne). But as one scheduling conflict led to another, Wayne was the only one able to make it. And what was supposed to be a casual hang out turned into a first date. Over a movie and popcorn, Rachel and Wayne both knew that they liked each other more than friends. Much more.

Things moved quickly and they both fell fast. And hard. Marriage was talked about very early on. But with school and a move, timing wasn’t quite right. One day when they sat down to talk about life, they decided that it was time. Rachel and Wayne made a pact that 2013 was the year. As the days passed, Rachel wasn’t quite sure when the proposal was coming. She tried not to think about it. Waiting patiently. And excitedly too. One evening when she came home from work, she was greeted with a homemade meal. And there, over candle light, Wayne asked Rachel to marry him. Quiet and romantic. Simple and sweet. And perfectly them.

Rachel - I can’t even express how awesome these photos are! We are both very shy and pretty awkward people in front of the camera and we were so nervous. But Ewan did an amazing job! I can’t even believe these photos are us! But I also can’t believe how you found the essence of us in the photos. LOVE LOVE LOVE times a million! I can’t wait to frame these and blow them up! It’s taken us 7 years to get here but I wouldn’t have done it any other way. And with the wedding this September I’m so glad you could squeeze us in. I will be bragging about these photos for a lifetime! xo
