I’m a planner. I like to have everything planned perfectly far in advance. But sometimes inspiration hits, sometimes obstacles arise, and sometimes things just end up in a different direction than you originally planned. Thus, was Sunday. The original planned day was a traditional church service, a couple of scenes in the cemetery, and a picnic date followed by two last portrait sessions with Rachel.

Then we had the idea of transforming a regular church service into an Easter sunrise service at the cemetery. Only small problem is the scene was already scheduled for one in the afternoon.Which meant a little maneuvering trying to find a nice shady spot under trees. The change in location also caused a slight hitch with our lunch plans, so lunch at our house became a picnic lunch at the cemetery. Which actually turned out to be a pretty fun time for all.

The joyous service soon turned to sorrow, though, in the next scene where Mitchell comforts two grieving women.

Next, Rachel and Mitchell went on their first date.

Which was immediately followed by the beautiful proposal scene.

Then Rich Swingle (Mitchell) was whisked off to make his flight in time and we continued with two final Rachel scenes.
