Folsom Engagement Session | Ryan and Rachelle | my 100th Blog Post

This is my 100th blog post. I’m not a daily blogger, so it’s definitely taken some time to get here…two and a half years actually. I started this blogging adventure back in 2008 when I really started to take the business side of my photography seriously. I had been shooting portraits and such with my camera for a couple years, but hadn’t really taken it too far from a business point of view.

Deciding to blog recent work, tell the stories behind the images, talk about my personal life, and to put myself out there has been the best decision for me and for my business…truly. I like that my blog allows you to get an idea of who I am and what I’m all about. I think full disclosure is a good thing and I’m not perfect, so that’s risky. I know they say you should separate yourself from your business, but the truth is I don’t do that. And, I’m not sure I’d be happy if I did.

So for post #100 it’s another amazing couple, Ryan and Rachelle. They are sweet, gorgeous, fun, happy…everything an engaged couple just a month away from their wedding should be right? No stress, just happiness and excitement to start their life together. It’s a modern day online love story born of Facebook, but I’ll save that part of their story for the wedding post.

We decided to shoot in Folsom for their engagement session. I actually live in Folsom and there is no shortage of beautiful places for photographs. But truthfully, all of Northern California is that way. We’re very blessed to live here.

We started at the Folsom powerhouse then headed toward the CSUS aquatic center at Lake Natoma to catch some of that beautiful late afternoon light, my very favorite kind.

Here’s to personality, love, joy, beauty, photography, and the next 100 blogs posts!

  1. Oh my goodness, these photos are so cute!! They both look so happy. I can’t pick a favourite. The ones in the field are so fun and the last few are so so romantic by the water. Congrats on the 100th blog post too!

  2. Congratulations on hitting your 100th post!! And with a display of such amazing work. I love how much this couple laughs in all these pictures. And such beautiful scenery, it sets the mood for romance.

  3. Thanks Teresa for creating such beautiful photographs for my daughter Rachelle and Ryan. You do great work and I can’t wait to see how the wedding photos turn out. Sue (mother of the bride)

  4. They are so cute together! Congratulations on the 100th blog post… what a great milestone 🙂
    As far as favorites go, I really like the ones of the couple under the tree, and then their individual head shots with *THAT LIGHT*… gorgeous!

  5. This couple looks like so much fun! (And she reminds me a little of Molly Ringwald.) I love the sequence of them playing in the field, and the shot of them reading by the river is really beautiful. Very nice work.

  6. Hi Teresa! Beautiful photos! I’m a photographer too, and have a client that sent me a snapshot of one of your photos here (the one with the bridge) – she wants her Senior Portraits done here. Can you tell me where this is? I would be so grateful for your help! Thanks!♥️ Molly
