Rachel and Vic’s love is a beautiful testament to a supportive, overcoming husband and wife relationship. Only months after their wedding, Rachel was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and the carefully laid plans they had been making had to be temporarily paused while they dealt with the fallout of this heartbreaking illness. Through medical treatments, losing hair, long nights, and exhausting days they tackled more in their first year of marriage than many have to face in a decade. Ever patient, they are the embodiment of leaning into each other so that you can stand strong together. I am so grateful to say that Rachel is now cancer free and together they are joyfully anticipating the next 50 years of tackling life side-by-side!
Rachel & Vic joined me for an evening on Driftwood Beach in Jekyll Island, GA so that we could document them in this stage of life. Every anniversary session is incredibly special to me, but these images represented something even more- emerging together into the next phase of their life, cancer-free and stronger than ever.
Have you figured out yet that Rachel is an incredibly beautiful dancer, too? She moves with such effortless grace.
