Real Wedding: Texas Family Becomes One

Mutual friends set up this couple, but it took them six months to really hit it off. Friends know best, and here they are now! Captured by Shawna Hinkel Photography

Sometimes your friends just know you better than you know yourself, whether you’re willing to admit it or not! For Rayna & Roderick, that was absolutely the case! Long before Shawna Hinkel Photography had the opportunity to capture their wedding day, a couple of friends set them up on a group date for happy hour. Everyone had a good time, but Rayna & Roderick didn’t exchange numbers, and went about their way. Well, their friends just couldn’t have that, and about a week after the date, numbers were exchanged. They went on a couple more dates, with Rayna’s daughter, Kamryn, and then it all fizzled out for about six months. Roderick asked Rayna & Kamryn out on a dinner date, and the rest, as they say, is history! Clearly, their friends knew what they were doing, and over five years after the fact, Rayna & Roderick – and Kamryn! – came together in front of their friends, family, and Shawna Hinkel Photography to tie the knot!
