The Government have had a lot to say of late about sugar, the fact that it is mean and nasty and that it may actually kill you and make you obese and all kinds of other related stuff.

The Down-Home Engagement of Kate & Josh

The Down-Home Engagement of Kate & Josh

June 13, 2014  |  Love Shoots, Lovely Couples  |  2 Comments

Our favourite shoots don’t just capture love…

They capture life…

The down-home feel of the images are perfect pixels for a languorous warm Friday afternoon, and aren’t you the lucky ones to espy these images from the lens of Rachel Gulotta.

It would be a mahoo-sive understatement not to mention our fan girl credentials when it comes to this talented photographer. There is such a warmth to her style, a sense of intimacy that make the work a visual conversation, nothing feels contrived or forced.

No pretension.

No airs.

Not likely to end up on awkward family photos in half a decade or sooner.

Just the happy faces of a couple who love each other.

The images that are part of you viewing pleasure this fine afternoon are of Kate and Josh.

Rachel shared:

Kate and Josh live and love in a high rise located in River North — one of Chicago’s best gems — so that’s exactly where we started their engagement session. The pair have totally decked out their apartment in vintage finds and modern picks — from the vintage thermos collection and butter churner to the succulents, animal skin throw, and antler sheds. It’s totally clear that they’ve put their hearts and souls into their space, so I’m endlessly grateful that I was invited to capture that part of their lives.

Our session started organically – quite literally. The two prepped and prepared a breakfast hash from scratch –  a very typical morning for the Photo Stylist and Law Student. After they shared their hearty meal together, they simply enjoyed each other, their pets, some crisp vinyl, and the gorgeous view.

The India meets Japan Hint of Hawaii Wedding of Ken & Ami

“Ken and I met back in February 2011. I am from outside of Philadelphia, PA, and was making my way across the country to try a new city and Ken had moved to Portland from Honolulu, HI, where he grew up.

Our first date was at Tea Chai Te, and we hit it off as we shared mint moroccan green tea and 2 hours of conversation. Things took off from there, and the following year, Ken proposed at Kelley Point in North Portland, representing how we came together in Portland from such distant origins just as the confluence of the rivers come together at Kelley Point.

It wasn’t long before we were preparing for our wedding. Ken is 1/2 Japanese and has been studying a Japanese style of flower arranging, called Ikebana, for 8 years. He, along with his sensei (teacher) and a few helpers, arranged all of the flowers and planned the set-up for our wedding all in the style of Ikebana. I am of Indian heritage and so the actual ceremony and dress was of traditional Gujarati (the ethnic group in India to which I belong) style. Building on this immersion of cultures, we decided to have Japanese food (sushi), Indian food (samosas and chaat), as well as American food (Pizza!) at the wedding.”

Time to let shutter candy begin!
