Early Spring Engagement Session in Chippewa Falls

Back in 2014 – a chance passing in a gym at Drake University brought Rachel and AJ together. AJ was on the men’s basketball team, Rachel on the women’s volleyball team – and in that passing moment Rachel caught AJ’s eye. Just after classes began that year AJ reached out on Facebook and sent Rachel a message, which led to texting and then going on a date.

Just this past year on their 4th anniversary, Rachel and AJ took a trip to Milwaukee. AJ planned a stadium tour of Miller Park and dinner downtown Milwaukee – but it was when they were at Miller Park that down on the field posing for a photo that AJ proposed and asked Rachel to spend the rest of her life together. She said, “YES!”

I love these photos that we took earlier this spring and I’ve been so excited to get back to blogging after some back-end website work which brought a blogging hiatus! Here are some of my favorites!
