She remembers the exact date that she and Peter met- December 12, 2008. One of her best friends from high school, Megan, had her 21st birthday party at Peter’s house that he shared with a couple of other guys. Sarah didn’t know anyone at the party besides Megan, until Peter came up to her and started talking. They talked the rest of the night, and she impressed Peter with her guitar skills. At the end of the night, it was Peter’s roommate who got Sarah’s phone number to give to him… At that time, Peter and Sarah lived 3 hours apart.
They talked on the phone every day for the next month before she returned to Kansas for their first date. She wasn’t sure how things would go, but they were really comfortable around each other and felt like they had known each other forever. The next weekend, he took the trip to visit her home at the lake where he met her entire family all at once. He was really good with her 5 year old niece, Jaden, and Sarah’s parents loved him. She said that her parents are REALLY picky and knew that if they liked him he was a good guy. After their second weekend together and him meeting her family, she knew that she could see herself marrying him. Ever since, they have driven those 3 hours almost every week to see each other and talk on the phone every night. She said that her poor car definitely knows how much she loves Peter.
They spend much of their time at the lake together and visiting wineries in the area. We started their session at a private yacht club followed by a visit to the 7 Springs Winery. I look forward to photographing their September wedding up at the Lake. Hope you enjoy the sweet photos from their engagement session. I just couldn’t get enough of that beautiful morning light on the sailboat.
