Rachael + Danny | Married | Downtown Pensacola, Florida

Rachael + Danny 

One of my favorite things about working in the wedding industry is the rare couples who trust you and your vision. They stress less and enjoy the moment more. You are able to capture those raw emotions and glimpses of pure bliss. It seems as though even the elements work in honor of their love. 

I simply could not have created a better wedding to end my year with. 

Rachael and Danny, I typically write a little synopsis of the wedding day and then go right into showcasing your images. This time I feel as though I should write a personal letter to you. 

Thank you. Thank you for allowing me to direct you. Thank you for being so sweet and gentle with every moment. You, together, emanate grace and love.  

Danny- thank you for showing Rachael such a sweet love. You were so complimentary and willing to do anything she needed. That is an extremely rare quality. One that you would think I would see more often in my field of work but sadly, I just don't see it. 

Rachael- never take that love for granted. You are a wonderful match for Danny. You bring the element of grace. You listen to him and you allow him to lead. That is something that I wish that I were better at. Continue to allow him to shine. 

Most importantly, the two of you are so much fun. You view life as an adventure every day and I love it! Life is going to throw you a lot of trials, especially in these first few years and navigating those trials is not going to be easy. Coming back to each other and always finding that joy and sense of adventure is going to be key to a successful marriage. 

I suppose I don't need to continue to express my gratitude and I can just show the world the love between the two of you!
