Rachael + Ryan || Fargo ND Engagement Photographer

They are equal parts deep souls and dancing to Beyonce.

Rachael is my roommate and one of my best friends. We first bonded over a plate of spaghetti and soon realized that our upbringings were scary similar. We both love DC Talk and daydreamed as children about being Amy Carmichael and would insist on being barefoot because we were pretending to be Native Americans. Rach and I would have been besties as kids, which makes sense because she's one of those stuck with me for life. We'll force our strange and quirky future children to be friends and embarrass them with all our dance moves and rapping. 

Oh yeah, and they have a really great relationship as well. (I suppose this post isn't actually supposed to be about my love for Rachael...) 

It's been an honor watching these friends come together, fall in love, and now prepare to get married. Being along for the ride during every stage has been a beautiful experience. They have blossomed into an amazing couple (even if they are a tad too-in-love-that-it's-gross). The future they have ahead of them will be stunning and I can't wait to see where God leads them!

I took a photo of us mid-embrace. When I am old and alone, I will remember that I once held something truly beautiful.
