Sarah & Michael

soft | gentle | devoted

I was so blessed to have the opportunity to awake Saturday morning before the sunrise, throw some clothes on, grab my camera and head to a misty and gentle country club where I met Sarah & Michael for their sunrise couple's session.

I'd been ecstatic about this session all week and could hardly contain my excitement on the drive there, but I think the true rush hit as soon as these two stepped in front of my lens. Sarah and Michael not only took my breathe away with their beauty, but also touched my heart with their gentle and dedicated love for each other.

As we crawled through fields of overgrown grass and under pine trees, we only grew more and more comfortable with each other. After wandering for some 20-30 minutes we found our way into a grassy patch where Sarah and Michael gladly cuddled up for my camera. 

I think Sarah and I were both equally surprised when Michael pulled out a letter Sarah had written him from the past semester of college. Seeing Michael's vulnerability and Sarah's encouragement in this moment had me at a true loss for words. As Michael relayed how this letter truly got him through his spring semester, Sarah and I both melted into gentle tears.

I am still starstruck from this session with these two. I'm so enthralled in how God crafts these magical moments I have the privilege of documenting. This session was truly the start of something new for Joy-Monét Photography, and I just can't help but share it with all of you :)
