Sarah’s first email to us felt like a little fairy godmother booped us on the head. She described Davis, her husband-to-be, as “the brightest light I think this world has ever seen,” and anyone who describes their person before they describe their wedding clearly has their priorities straight. Then she told us she was crying because after searching through over 100 photographers (100! I mean this girl is serious about her photos and we LOVE THAT), that she was crying openly because she’d found us.
So we found ourselves shooting our dream wedding at Thistle Springs Ranch in the Texas hills on my birthday. No cell reception. No stress.
We have 40 weddings this year, and most things are roughly similar: two lovebirds exchange rings and kisses and dance-offs. But the little things about a wedding always stand out the most to us. Like how Sarah brought me donuts because it was my birthday (which I think I’d mentioned offhand like six months prior, who is seriously that thoughtful?!). Like how we accidentally posed her on an anthill, her dress and legs were covered in fire ants, and she let us pour ice water on her and coolly moved on with her day, not a hint of drama in sight. Like how she hired North Mark Films, our new favorite people whose style matches ours and who share our philosophy of bending over backwards for the people who trust you with their wedding day. Like how she and Davis took the time to change into traditional Vietnamese ao dai wedding ensembles and looked super fly. AND– and this one cannot be understated– how we went outside for family photos and Sarah’s entire family had already assembled and posed themselves. LITERALLY I’ve never seen anything like it and can die happy.
A few shots from one of our most favorite days. Sarah and Davis, our little dreamboats.
this is right before we discovered we were standing on the nightmare anthill. How dare those little guys bother this gorgeous couple.
aaaand the groomsmen sang me happy birthday. These dudes.
the aforementioned incredible family. I could actually hug each and every one of them.
