Sarah + Justin | Thousand Oaks Wedding

One of my very first photography projects in college was to practice window lighting. I photographed some beautiful sisters who were graciously willing to come model for me during the midst of a busy school season! That was my first time visiting Strathearn Historical Park and Museum and I knew it wouldn't be my last!

Jake and I had an absolute blast during Sarah and Justin's wedding. There was SO much contagious laughter throughout the day and I'm sure you can see that just by looking through these sweet moments! The selfless love that these two displayed for each other, their family and friends, and most of all God was so encouraging. We are thankful to have been a part of their day and that we had the opportunity to be able to tell their story.

This is what a former ballet dancer and a youth pastor falling in love looks like.  The gracefulness and contagious smiles that Samantha exudes is unexplainable.  I've (Kim) been friends with Samantha since junior high.  I felt like a part of me was missing when she left to go to a different school during early high school. She never failed to encourage me with positive thoughts and sore abs from all of the laughter.  She had such a bright smile, that I knew it couldn't get any bigger.

Then I met Zach at their bridal shower.  And her smile was different.  It was glowing with a different kind of glow.  It was oozing happiness and pure joy - she found her soul-mate.  They were like two peas in a pod, and I'm pretty sure that's what you'll see when you look at the photos from their beautiful summer wedding!
