christmas love in columbus | sweetheart session

sarah + justin

Columbus, Ohio wedding Photographer, Christmas

This session makes me extra happy because not only do I love shooting happy, cute couples in love, but I REALLY love shooting my friends when they are happy and in love! Sarah and I have been friends for going on 5 years (right, Sarah? I'm bad with timelines but she's a master at it.) We bonded over our similar pasts and similar senses of humor and basic overall outlooks on life. We met at Outback Steakhouse here in Columbus when we were both bartenders there and now we work literally side-by-side during the week at a law firm in German Village. I'm super thankful for this girl and our friendship! 

Sarah and Justin also met at Outback working together. (Fun fact, It's also where I met my husband Dave! Thank you Outback ;) ) These two are simply adorable. They are silly and sweet with each other and if you can't tell in almost every single picture, they know how to make each other laugh! I love it. Also, don't they seriously look like two J. Crew models? Yeah, I know.

I love looking at these photos because it makes me so happy to see my friend so happy. Justin, thank you for adoring her so much and for putting that giant smile on her face!

"Through the years
We all will be together
If the fates allow
So hang a shining star
Upon the highest bough
A merry little Christmas now." <3

^^^^^^ I told Justin to pick her up, then said "kick your foot up in the air." I was talking to Sarah, but Justin wasn't clear on that, hahaha :-D
