Lindsey & Josh!!

I REALLY love to do engagement sessions...I pretty much swear by them now...just because of how fun they are, plus it makes the wedding day flow so much better when we all already know each other and the couple is used to being in front of the camera:) This shoot was definitely no exception! Lindsey and Josh are SOOO cute!! They could totally be models! They are just so fun too! Lindsey wanted to do something really fun for their shoot so we headed out to play catch then to Oberweis for some amazing ice cream:)

When I had the client meeting with Lindsey and Josh we seriously had dinner for about 2 hours and just talked and talked! I love when your clients can become your friends too!! It's the best and what makes me love my job all the more!

OK these are INCREDIBLE! I was trying to remember all my favorites! The first one of course and then the ones by the phone booth and playing catch and at the cafe! Wow!

p.s. I think you have "load entire show checked" - Were these shows stalling out on you?

Hey girl! Love the new touches to your blog like the header and embedded slideshows. I've been debating too whether to embed mine. I'll have to come back and see your slideshows though, I'm in the Dallas airport on sloooooow wireless connection. But even just the front pages of your slideshows are sooo very Sarah Barlow! Great job!

Sarah Barlow said...

Thank you so much everyone!! Lindsey and Josh were just SOOO easy to shoot!! Plus they just made it so much fun that you couldn't get a bad picture of them:)

DJ...oops!! I guess I did and didn't realize that was checked! I'll have to fix that cause otherwise you have to wait forever! :)

Ashley!! I'll shoot pics of you and your husband anytime! Just let me know when your in town sometime!

Hey Scarlett!! YOU HAVE to embed your shows!!! :) People will love it!! Seriously! Just like how you can't pass up clicking play on a You Tube video same with the shows!

Dearest Sarah...
I AM BLOWN AWAY!!! I knew the pictures would be good, but oh my goodness Sarah, honestly you are AMAZING!!! I am SO excited that my wedding pictures are in your hands...and likewise in the Lords too, but THANK YOU SO MUCH! Honestly I am so blessed! Also, sweetie thanks for inviting us to Hillsong, we both LOVE them, but as you can probably guess, we have been running around like crazy doing last minute meetings w/ dj, caterer, etc and well, its been crazy! I'm sorry I didn't call you back to tell you we couldn't come, thanks for thinking of us! What a blessing to have you as a friend! Thanks so much Sarah, these pictures make me even more excited about the wedding!
in Christ,
Lindsey
ps I Cant wait to show Josh, he hasn't seen them yet! He is gonna LOVE them!

Top-notch stuff, ms. Barlow. The Crawford kids from the last post are the cutest I've ever seen (besides my own). Props. Props. Props.

I loved these! You picked some great ones out from the 1600 you took :)

Dave Biesse said...

It's always fantastic to see people producing such consistently good work - I really dig the style of all your shots. Keep it up : )

Sarah,

I am so glad that I finally got to meet you in Chicago earlier this month and I'm really glad that DJ has put you on my radar and in my life. I am inspired and love the stories in your slide shows. Amazing!

Sarah said...

From one Sarah photographer to another... I think these are fabulous..

PS.. I also adore Hillsongs!!

Sarah Barlow said...

Lindsey! Oh! I'm so glad you love them!! I could shoot you guys all day..well I guess I basically did!! haha! :) I can't wait for your wedding...now that's going to be a blast! No problem about the Hillsong thing! I totally understand! We'll have to do the Barlowgirl concert though once you guys are settled into married life:)

Sarah Barlow said...

Eric...yeah I agree! The Crawford kids are so stinking adorable!! Definitely tempted me to become a childrens photographer! haha!

Beth! You know it wasn't 1600...it was 1599 pictures! ;) LOL!

Keats! I really enjoyed getting to hang out and know you better out here! So much fun!! I love all your stories about classes you've been too! Classic! :) Hope to see you in LA in September for Partnercon!!

Sarah! Thanks so much! You love Hillsongs and your name is Sarah! What could get better than that! haha! :)

Sarah Renée said...

Ohhhh soo good, Sarah!! There was something so refreshing about these shots...

...I think the fact that the kissing was down to a minimum and the cuteness brought to the maximum really brought more of their personality as a couple out. :)

Yay for great pictures!! lol To put it simply...

I love the idea of playing catch! Always good to keep the couple moving. These are great!
