Rachel and Simon are so in love it makes your heart sing. They make you realize that people are meant to be together. I had the chance to spend a few hours with them over a week ago at Simon’s family horse ranch in Cloverdale, Oregon right near the Oregon Coast. I had an absolute blast with them. They were so warm-hearted, giggly and couldn’t keep their hands and eyes off each other. They mentioned beforehand that they were uncomfortable in front of the camera. And to that I say, I think not! They were up for anything. I’m uber excited for their wedding in a couple weeks. Here are some of my favorites from the session. And might I add, it was extremely difficult to narrow the photos I’d like to share because they were so ridiculously amazing! Thank you Rachel and Simon!
These two lovebirds met at a popular Halloween party. The Sportsman’s Pub & Grub annual Hooker’s Ball in Pacific City, OR. I know. I giggled when I heard this too. Even cuter is that Miss Rachel dressed up as Swiss Miss. No wonder Mr. Simon was smitten!
What does Simon love about Rachel? “I like Rachel’s sexy self, the way Rachel smiles when she see me, and the way she takes care of me.” I’m in love with Rachel’s smile myself. I loved every picture she was smiling or laughing in!
These two are country. And I think it’s awesomesauce. They rock the cowboy boots and Simon is a champion in lineman rodeo where speed & agility are a must!
These two young’uns are Simon’s little guys and will be the best men in the wedding. They helped me get the happy couple to smile and even gathered little bouquets for Rachel!
The horses on the ranch were amazing. Although they did look at me a few times and wondered what in the world I was doing there and why in the world didn’t I have any snacks with me.
I really enjoyed touring the horse ranch and was even more impressed that Rachel and Simon were willing to sit on the ground right next to horse outings to get beautiful images like these.
The weather was absolutely amazing and Mr. Sun was so cooperative.
As we were walking the umpteen acres of ranch, we happened upon this broken down cute truck that belonged to the family. Pretty rad huh?
What does Rachel love about Simon? “There is no way I can pick just one thing that I love about Simon because I really love everything. He loves me and his family so much. He is a hard worker, smart, outgoing, and hot as hell. He is my best friend and we have so much fun together.”
I just had to include the cute bouquets of flowers from the boys in the session. Adorable!
Right next to the ranch was Simon’s uncle’s property. Pretty landscaping and an adorable mural.
There was also a pretty pond but I hardly noticed it because the two lovebirds overshadowed it.
Seriously, how cute are they?!?!!
