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 Reade !!!). 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.

Sarah’s sparkling jewels.
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!
On the other side of town Brian and the guys were getting ready. Below, Katie O pins Brian’s elegant boutonniere.
