Back in January, we loaded up our Subaru and headed out to Rochester to meet up with Rachel and Jesse for their e-session! :)

As far as couples go, these two are as cute as a button. Just watching them interact for the few hours we were with them was enough to convince us that they are 100% totally and completely in-love. They were all smiles and laughter; it’s super obvious that they enjoy each other’s company, and I couldn’t help but think to myself, “this is really what it’s all about, isn’t it?  That connection.”  It’s all about finding those rare people in your life that you can talk to for hours about nothing at all, who get your sense of humor, who think you’re cool just because you’re you – finding those incredible people to share your life with and feel connected to is a gift, and watching Rachel and Jesse (who clearly “get” each other), made me grateful in that moment to have had the opportunity in my life to feel that connection, too.   ;)

We started out at The Lamberton Conservatory – very similar to our own Botanical Gardens here in Buffalo, just a wee bit smaller – and perfect for a cold afternoon in January.

Yes, yes, I know this isn’t Rachel OR Jesse….but they were right next to them, and aren’t they SO CUTE (and cozy looking)??

More laughter…LOVE it.

Aside from the fact that it was 10 degrees out that day, it was absolutely beautiful outside.  The sky was bright blue, the sun was shining, and fortunately, Rachel and Jesse are AWESOME and wanted to brave the cold!

Soooo glad they did!  Just look at that sky!  (Yes, it was that color blue in real life…I swear.)
