This wedding brings so many tears to my eyes for so many reasons. I have watched Sarah grow up in front of my camera since she was 16, and in a lot of ways it felt like watching my own little sister get married to the love of her life. This family has come to mean so much to Stephen and I over the years having photographed Sarah’s brother’s weddings as well, and family portraits in between. The most beautiful part of a job as a photographer is when clients become friends and even more so like family.
This wedding also brings tears to my eyes because this wedding closes out my career as a photographer. As I now focus on motherhood, this wedding was the last shoot I took on and moving forward I will be hanging up camera for good. But what a beautiful chapter and season it was in my life, and I will forever be grateful for the adventures and relationships it allowed me to create the past decade.
Sarah & Parker have one of those love stories that just makes you smile. From the time they met on a trampoline at 12 years old, their love for each other has endured through all the important milestones of growing up together. Though life sometimes took them down different paths, they always found their way back to each other, and they ultimately got their happily ever after. When you look at the way these two look at each other, you just feel their love and you can’t imagine their lives without one another.
Their wedding day was a such a joy to celebrate along their families as we all watched these two begin their forever. Here are some favorites from their day below!
