Skyline Drive Engagement Photos: Rachel & Brian


Skyline Drive Shenandoah National Park Engagement Photos

When Rachel inquired about my wedding photography, she led with this sentence: “My fiancé and I met in 5th grade doing the morning announcements.”

Obviously, this sounded like one of the cutest love stories I’ve ever heard, so I couldn’t wait to hear more! As it turns out, they have known each other for a very long time. They started dating their senior year of high school when Brian asked Rachel to be his girlfriend during a football game. Nearly nine years later, Brian asked her to be his wife during a walk in that very same football stadium. After she said yes, they celebrated with Chipotle. Not only was this a delicious way to start their engagement, it was also where they had their first date back in high school!

As you can tell, Rachel and Brian are an incredible couple. With the views at Shenandoah National Park and their strong love for each other, they made my job easy! Here are a few favorites from their Skyline Drive engagement photos – I can’t wait for their wedding this summer!
