Happy Birthday to this amazing sister of mine! While I know you celebrated it yesterday in NZ, I’m celebrating you today! I can hardly believe that it was going on 3 years ago that I got to do your engagement pictures. Oh, that blustery, cold, December day in Portland sure did try and make us go home but we said “heck no!” Now that I’m a Columbus engagement photographer, I laugh a little at what we used to think was “cold and blustery”.
Rachel, you are so strong and talented! I love seeing how God has used your life to glorify him and grow you closer to himself. I don’t know many people who have up and moved to the other side of the world, met their spouse and stayed in that country all before 22.
Of course, a day in Portland is never complete without a stop by a favorite coffee shop. Thank you, Albina Press, for the amazing coffee art that day. I miss you terribly and I’m planning to stop in this summer!
Well Sis, I truly hope you had/have an amazing day! I’m sure 23 is looking amazing on you already. I can’t wait till we can come visit you and take more pictures of you two cuties. I’m sending all my love from across the ocean (and most of the North American continent)! Happy birthday!!!
Your friendly Columbus Engagement Photographer!
