Rachel and Jim were brought together by the Blackhawks the night they won the Stanley Cup. They ended up in the same place because of mutual friends and Rachel noticed Jim and his “gorgeous smile” as she calls it right when she walked in. Although Jim had his eyes glued to the game, and Rachel left early because of class in the morning, Jim made a point to approach their mutual friend after Rachel had left and ask her number. It was later that week that they planned their first date!
Rachael says she loves that “we can do anything together and have fun whether it’s a night in or a night out or a Saturday morning spending time with our dog.” I was lucky enough to witness this in person during their engagement shoot. They were SUCH a fun couple, which made them so easy to shoot. They even brought along their newly adopted dog, Jade! We got some beautiful shots of the three of them with the fall colors as well as stunning pictures of Rachael and Jim on the Stone Arch Bridge and down on the banks of the Mississippi. I cannot wait to see what new kind of fun you bring to your wedding!
