Meet Jamie and Mike! Jamie is already part of the Rachel Blackwell Photography family as she was in her sister, Cassie’s, wedding a few years ago! I was SO excited when Jamie asked me to be her wedding photographer because I love her family and they throw the best weddings!! Both Mike and Jamie go to Wheaton in Chicago. So we had to meet up the day after Thanksgiving in Davis, CA of all places (it was halfway between SF and where they spent the holiday). Coffee is a huge part of their love story so they definitely wanted to incorporate that into one of their locations. It was super fun for me because I’ve never done that! We then headed to the UC Davis Arboretum where we had the most beautiful sunlight to work with! Enjoy the photos!
Starting out with a personal fav! Love how the trees frame this photo and how perfect the sun is!
Loving this little spot!
I could make a habit out of shooting here… if it wasn’t 1.5 hours away from me.
Fav! Jamie looks SOOO gorgeous!
Always have to have classic photos in every shoot! Something I feel is very important!
But those classic pics can turn into really cute ones too :).
Coffee Shop! I love the cozy feel of these.
Last spot! Loved this one in black and white.
Found this fantastic log/tree combo. Wish I would have stayed there longer, ha!
Catching the last few minutes of the sun.
Love the one on the right.
A little school pride is a must!
We ended with this fun little series of photos! Some of these are super funny! Can’t wait for July Jamie & Mike! I know your wedding will be SO fun!
