Rachel and Matt (and I) were at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor for college at the same time. I actually lived a few floors up from Rachel in the same dorm building our sophomore year and we were in the same sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon. Towards the end of sophomore year, Rachel and Matt met when they were assigned to be dance partners for a Greek dance performance fundraiser. Funny enough, I watched that performance from the balcony of the auditorium, cheering on Rachel and all of the other DPhiE girls, but would have never guessed that 6 years later, they’d be getting married! I love it.
Rachel was an education major in college (and is now an elementary school teacher, crushing the craziness of online zoom teaching during this weird covid time – shout out to Rachel and all of the teachers) and I was an art major so we ran in slightly different circles in college. That made me so excited when she reached out about photographing her wedding next year and we had a chance to reconnect and catch up!
Rachel and Matt are planning an epic summer wedding at a ski resort up north in Boyne, Michigan but before that rolls around, for their engagement session, they wanted to take a walk back down memory lane in Ann Arbor at U of M’s campus. It was the peak of colorful fall leaves and we all had a blast walking through the town and reminiscing. This University of Michigan college sweethearts engagement session is close to my heart and Rachel and Matt are so energetic and lighthearted that you can’t help but smile looking at them (or at least I can’t). Congratulations you two and I can’t wait for the big day! And forever and always, go blue.
Rachel and Matt made the long drive from the west side of the state for their University of Michigan college sweethearts engagement session and it was well worth it. Engagement sessions are such a fun way to celebrate this exciting time in your life before you’re officially married and you can really make them all about you and all your own!
