I don’t know if it’s that I’ve known this couple since they started dating five years ago, or that Sarah has remained one of my closest friends for well over a decade, or if it was the perfect glowy light that fell just right, but these photos are some of my favorite that I’ve taken to date. Sarah and Chad are so effortlessly adorable and managed to squeeze in plenty of laughs throughout the shoot. The way Chad looks at his wife is enough to make anyone melt. Their love story is uniquely them, and I’m so glad I got to tell a glimpse of it for their 5-year dating, 1-year married anniversary!
These two were real troopers when we arrived a tad too early to our first location. While I loved this lane of trees, the light was a little too intense for some of the shots I was aiming for. We quickly escaped from the harsh sun and swarms of bugs for some warmer light down the road!
When you ask Sarah for a model face – you end up with lots of laughs! Sarah and Chad were so sweet together, and we ended up with plenty of fun laughing outtakes.
Sarah and Chad, congratulations on five years together and one year of marriage! Your love story is so beautiful, and it’s so encouraging to see a couple who works hard at loving each other and pursuing God. The only thing I’d change about you two is that I wish you lived closer!
