Welcome! We are Zach and Sarah, a husband and wife photography team who loves everything that goes along with love and weddings. The more creative, the better! We get excited about putting your special touch on your wedding day pics. As we shoot, we envision your grandkids cuddled up on the couch with you flipping through photos of your wedding day. Our motto is simple: Love never fails.

summer | senior session

Warning: This post will make you want to live in the South.
And if it doesn’t make you crave sweet tea, that’s because you have never had the tea or palmer from her parent’s restaurant.
So…sorry for the shameless plug…but the people at Stroud’s know how serious I am about my tea.
If you’ve never had it, you need to change that.

On to the reason you’re here…
This girl.
We have known her since she was toddling around as a baby,
but in the past few years, we have really gotten to know her.
She has a heart of gold.
And a personality to match her contagious smile.
We tried to hit up some of her favorite spots (which meant careful planning….the fair only comes around once a year, guys.)

I can’t even handle these. Summer, pretty doesn’t even do it justice.

And, just for fun, some of her BFFs (since they were toddlers) showed up and we snapped a few of them together.
FYI…one of the girls HATES cotton candy….which we found out AFTER she ate it.

Summer, we’re blessed because we know you.
And, we never like go to El Tap alone…so…you’re always welcome to join us.  ;)
We love you big time, and
We think you’re the cat’s meow.

will + janae | engagement session

When we first “met” these two, it was over SKYPE because they go to college in Arkansas.
And we immediately knew we’d like them because when our cat photobombed (SKYPE bombed?) us, they laughed.
That’s all it takes to be on our good side. ;)
Anyway, we’ve recently had several couples from Harding University, and we LOVE that
because, ironically, we used to go to summer camp there when we were teenagers.
And, we might have really fallen for each other during one of those weeks at Harding.
(1998. Can you BELIEVE that? Almost 20 years ago?!? Sheesh!)
So, couples from there are extra special to us.

Guys. You two are super adorable.

They were literally ALL SMILES all day.
Janae, you are beautiful, and it radiates out of your whole body.
I don’t think anyone could be in a bad mood around you.


Ok, ok, maybe this is my favorite.

We are SO excited about your wedding because if it is half as fun as this day was, we’re in for a treat!

I am so excited to share these with you.
Because this girl is adorable.
And, I’m going to go ahead and apologize, because you will likely have hair envy after you see these.
I know I did as we walked around taking pictures that day.

Freshmen Advice: These next four years will bring you incredible joy, but you will face difficult situations as well, and when you do, remember that the Lord is in control. Always trust in Him and in His plan.

Advice to Myself in Ten Years: Keep the Lord first in your life. Always have love and thankfulness in your heart. Live simply. Be bold.

Breanne, you are as sweet as you are beautiful…so basically, everyone now knows that you are SUPER sweet!
We had such a blast with you and your awesome parents.
Thank you for letting us be a small part of your senior year.
You will go far!
