RACHEL _ FELIX | DESTINATION ENGAGEMENT EXPERIENCE

When Rachel & Felix booked me as their wedding photographer I was elated!  We discussed that night how we'd be doing a destination engagement experience.  It didn't take us long to decide on the Gatlinburg area since it's one of my favorite places to visit & they would be vacationing there with her family during the Memorial Day holiday.  So, the week before we were to leave the weather didn't look promising.  Rain, Rain, Rain.  I text Rachel assuring her I had a plan only not telling her it was to shoot in the rain.  Thursday, the hubs & I packed our bags & set out for Gatlinburg.  Rachel & Felix arrived Friday afternoon & we immediately set out for Cades Cove.  And yes, it was going to rain.  Cades Cove was empty.  We pretty much had it to ourselves & that was perfection.  About half way around the cove I noticed we were getting some clouds & that's when I told them we were going to shoot through it.  Just trust me.  

My husband described our weekend pretty perfect, "It was like every location we went God was smiling down on us & gave you the perfect setting for every shot."
