I photograph a lot of couples, but it's always really special when I get to be a part of a friend's wedding, especially when I've seen the relationship from the beginning.
I won't lie though, I cry at every single wedding, each with its own tenderness.
About 5 years ago my buddy was walking out of our 12AM shift at Bay Photo Lab and turned to me. "Sarah, I'm about to go on a date and I'm really excited. She's really pretty and I have a good feeling." He told me.
Last weekend I had the honor of photographing the marriage of Ryan and Krista, who are some of my oldest friends in the Bay Area.
These two loved each other from moment one. No questions asked. No doubt about it.
With that, I've been on this kick lately, a curiosity you could say. After being surrounded by tons of couples, or people in love in general, I've started asking this question:
Did you find that when you first met your partner (past or current) was it "love at first sight" or did you grow to love your partner over time?
