I believe in real moments. The tiny moments in between the ordinary ones that make an extraordinary life together, an extraordinary love together. The smile that spreads across your face when he whispers why he loves you. The love you feel when you retell how he proposed to you. The belly laughter that results from being fully engaged in each others company. The joy you feel as you watch your children play and realize the family you now have. I believe in these moments because I get to live them everyday.
The first time I held his hand, I knew nothing would ever be the same. I am beyond excited every time I see his sweet smile, still, almost five years and one sweet baby girl later. It's a real love, an authentic love, and it's our story.
That's the love I strive to capture with every lifestyle session and wedding I photograph. The timeless, authentic story that is unique to you. I want to capture how he brushes your hair behind your ears and the way your eyes say I love you when you look at him. The way you beam as you're pronounced husband and wife for the very first time. The way you play with your children as they look up at you with hair in their face and a laughter that's contagious. I'll never tell you to laugh at that tree over there, but rather get to know you enough to know how to make you laugh.
That's the key to my experience and the reason couples and families love being a part of the Sarah Elgersma Photography family. It's joyful, it's inspired, it's real, because that's what I do, that's what I stand for.
