So many of you might not know that before I went full time with photography, I worked as a manager at a bridal shop. Sara happens to be one of the brides I met through working at Alfred Angelo, so that made me a thousand times more excited to photograph her wedding. I remember the day she came into the shop to find her gown. After trying on for a while, she finally said “yes to dress” and Facetimed her mom back in Illinois to share the moment with her. We were all standing around so excited to see her reaction – of course they both laughed and shared tears together. I didn’t know Sara or anything about her at that time but I knew she was going to be a beautiful bride. And here I am, a year later as a fulltime wedding photographer sharing the beautiful moments I was given the opportunity to capture on her wedding day. It’s amazing how God works.
