SARAH + BRIAN 2.25.12

I’ve known Brian for about 4 years through local radio events and concerts. Then, one day on the way back from work (when I was still in advertising) Brian called me and asked if I could shoot Sarah boxing some time. I’ve never shot boxing, but I figured if I could shoot a concert boxing would be, Ok (as long as no blood got on me!). That’s when I first met Sarah and she made boxing look like ballet. Seriously.

Shortly after I started shooting full-time and worked with some amazing local photogs second shooting weddings as a test drive. When Brian & Sarah asked me to shoot their wedding, I was really excited (even though I didn’t show it outwardly). Of course, I said, Yes!

Anyhow, the beautiful day was meticulously planned by the sparkling Katie O, Brian and Sarah. It came so quickly and before I knew it, it was 11 pm! No worries though, we got over 2,000 images (Big thanks to my awesome 2nd shooter – Dan ReadeĀ !!!). So enough of my blabbing and onto the memories…I hope you enjoy the images as much as I did capturing them.

Congratulations Brian & Sarah! I hope these images remind you of the treasured moments from your beautiful wedding day.

xoxo,

J

Every girl loves her shoes! Sarah had three pairs – one for the ceremony, another for the choreographed dance number and the last one for the reception. Fun!
