Seriously, what a joy it is to be given an opportunity to capture someones life with something simple as a touch of a button. For me, photography is an outlet to offer life and hope to those around me. It’s life portrayed in a tiny box. I get to give this ONE moment I capture…life. What a beautiful thing. I am honored to be given the opportunity to walk and share life with those I get to work with when I take their photographs…and long after. I promise to share my heart, and love you unconditionally! Christ is my firm foundation, and I give Him all the glory for getting what I get to do everyday.

Rachel Hufstedler - Hello!! :)

I absolutely LOVE your work! You have such a natural, God inspired gift that is so refreshing. My fiance, Ryan, and I just got engaged two days ago and it has been a whirlwind of a weekend with Easter also being his birthday! I follow your blog pretty regularly and I have lots of friends that have used you. I am from Lubbock and I graduated from Monterey in 2008 and my fiance is from the Dallas area. I remember hearing your name in high school (you know how that is…) and hopefully I can meet you sometime!!

So here’s the story….

My dad is a police officer here in town and all day on Friday he was warning to watch my speed on 82nd street (which is the street that I take to get to my fiance’s house) because they are working traffic over there really heavy. Ryan asked me to go on a date with him on Friday night and he told me to dress nice. He called me to let me know that he was about to leave to come get me but that he had a flat tire and that I would have to come get him. I was driving (down 82nd) to his house when I noticed a police car pull in behind me. As soon as I turned onto Ryan’s street off of 82nd, they turned their lights on and pulled me over. I knew it was my dad because he has pulled me over as a joke before, but I didn’t know that Ryan was in the car with him. Ryan walked up to my car and helped me out. He then got down on one knee and said, “Rachel, will you marry me?” Then I said…….YES!! I was so glad that Ryan included my dad and he ws so intentional about it being symbolic of the change of covering over me from my dad to him as my husband. I could talk about it all day but we’ll get to business :)

We are tentatively looking at August 12, 2012 here in town. We would also want you to do our engagement and my bridals if you offer that service as well. We’re looking at a couple of other people, but if you’re avaliable I would really like to have you do this for us :)
