Sarah + Josh {wedding story}

One thing for certain – we love us some Sarah and Josh.  Not only are they absolutely adorable and easy on the eyes, they are fun, hilarious, laid back, and genuine.  It took us less than 30 seconds to adore them.  We hit it off with these two right away, but I’m not egotistical enough to think that this is something unique with this couple.  Because it’s pretty evident that every single person that knows Sarah and Josh – love Sarah and Josh.  They make it so easy to love them.  Both always have a smile, always have something positive to say, know how to make you laugh so hard your sides hurt, and despite their stunning good looks are completely down to earth and relatable.  We cannot possibly say enough good things about them.
Over the past year we’ve gotten to know these two better, and have a friendship with the two.  One of my (Karin) besties is one of Sarah’s besties and she called it that Sarah and I would hit it off before we ever met.  And she was without a doubt correct.  With having a special place in your heart for the people you photograph comes an added pressure.  Roger often mentions that we shouldn’t photograph friends any more because I become a crazed lunatic.  I’ll admit, I get a little flustered when I shoot weddings of friends because I don’t want to miss a single thing and want it to be perfect.  Don’t get me wrong – that’s how we feel at every wedding we shoot, it just comes out as a panic when it’s someone we know.  Leading up to Sarah and Josh’s day I knew we’d be seeing a ton of beautiful things that day, so I wanted to be mentally prepared.  But nothing can prepare you for all the beauty this day included.  From the temperatures, to the locations, to the perfect bride and groom… this day was a masterpiece.  When the stars align and you have a day this magical you just hope to capture the essence of it for the bride and groom so they can relive it again and again throughout the years when they look through their day in photographs.  We are so excited to give them their first look at their day, and their legacy that will be shared for years to come.  Please enjoy a look at Sarah and Josh’s beautiful wedding day!
