So often, I think about how fun my job is and how wonderful it is that I get to photograph people and their relationships for a living. But even more than that, I’m often floored by how lucky I am to get to reconnect with friends from my past and celebrate some pretty momentous occasions with them. One such friend is Sarah! She + I have known each other since middle school. We were buddies throughout high school – we attended the same youth group together and many of my memories from that era involve Sarah somehow! I recall her being a constant source of humor, kindness, sarcasm, and a breath of fresh air. We’ve kept in touch here + there thanks to social media, but when she contacted me a few months ago as she began planning her wedding – I was so excited to see her in-person again and meet the lucky guy!
After our initial meeting with them, it was pretty clear… Sarah + Brendan are perfect together! They were setup by a co-worker and soon found out they have a lot in common! They both love the outdoors and traveling, they love their pups, she likes to bake (check out her blog!) and he likes to eat baked goods… :) They’ve been dating for a few years now and this past spring, while spending the weekend on a cherry farm in Northern Michigan, Brendan proposed to Sarah! She obviously said, ‘Yes!’ and they’ve been testing out wedding cake recipes ever since! They are getting married next month and we are elated to join them for the party! But first, we spent an evening in the city where it all began… Detroit!
