Lucky for us, fate was on our side when we received an email from Alicia Keats, one month before Sarah and Steven's wedding. The subject line of the email, word-for-word, was "Long shot wedding inquiry…for a Sunday wedding?? :)"
Last year was our busiest year to date. Looking at our schedule, we were already shooting two weddings that weekend on Friday and Saturday. Given the emotional and physical energy we invest in our weddings, did we really want to shoot three in a row?
A few emails later, the answer was a resounding 'yes'. First, Alicia is a wonderful person and an incredible wedding planner. It's really hard to say no to someone like that. Second, within those emails, we quickly learned what kind of people Sarah and Steven were. Sarah and Steven are sweethearts in every sense of the word. As people, as friends, as a couple. So how do you say no to that? You don't. We were very fortunate things came together and we were able to be a part of their wedding day.
Lastly, we just wanted to mention what great photographers Adam and Kev were to work with. We'd run into them at a couple of events previously and knew they were great guys, we just didn't know how fun and easy they'd be to work alongside. They have a very distinct style and their work is certainly worth checking out. That's their photo at the top left of the page and you can check out more photos from Sarah and Steven's wedding as they were recently featured in Real Weddings.
