Inside Look

My Philosophy

My prayer is that Sarah Lin Photography would honor the Lord by blessing couples with images to remind them of their love and joy for years and years to come. With each couples session I want my clients to walk away feeling like friends, go home and makeout on the couch and have deep heart to hearts and love each other well because they were seen and celebrated for who they are…and have images to show for their session or wedding day that capture THEM- in all their goofy, playful, quirkiness. That their friends look at the photos and say “I can hear your laugher and miss you guys so much!” and that years down the road they look at them and say “We were hot stuff then and we still got it now baby!”

I believe in marriage. I believe in the welcome home hugs and ‘good morning’ bad-breath kisses. I believe in saying the good you see in another, and not just thinking it. I believe that good marriages are built on prayer, and I want to be better about that in my own.  And I know that relationships and love is not all butterflies and rainbows.  Marriage requires grace and forgiveness and the understanding that love is just as much a choice as it is a feeling.  And so I choose to honor that by capturing images that you can pull off a shelf on your darkest days and REMEMBER.  Remember the promises you’ve made, the things you’ve been through, and the love you’ve shared.  Because you chose each other to do this life with.  To love and to cherish, till death do you part.  And at the end of the day, that’s where we land:  it all comes back to Love.

 

My Approach

I believe that getting images you love starts with showcasing YOU! No two couples are the same, so of course no two sessions or weddings should look the same. I take the time to get to know you, bring in some fun prompts and games to get you comfortable and laughing, and before you know it our portrait time is over and you’re left with the most be-YOU-tiful images to remember your day by! My couples often tell me (yes, even the guys!), “That was so much FUN!” Head over to the “Gallery” tab to see examples from some of my favorite sessions!

 

The Sarah Lin bride

is feminine and romantic, flirtatious and sweet, classy and kind. She is out to make a statement, but in an effortless way. Physical touch is her love language and everyone knows it, but dessert falls a close second. She is thoughtful with details, yet trusting with their execution. She loves to laugh, treats friends like family, and makes her sister the maid of honor. She is the praying type, the one that holds your hand when you’re sharing your heart and her eyes shine with empathy and goodness. She is classy to a T, but has a hint of sass too and isn’t afraid to laugh at herself. She is confident yet humble, and when donning her wedding dress can’t help but throw in a little twirl. There’s a timeless touch of royalty to her look that radiates first from a beautiful heart. She is a Sarah Lin bride.

The Sarah Lin groom

is a solid mixture of kind and quirky, intentional and thoughtful, approachable and real. He is a protective brother to his sisters and caring son to his mom. He works hard and is just as much a part of the wedding planning as his bride is, even if he lacks the artistic eye she has. He can’t hug her without coming in for a kiss, and when he’s with her nothing can distract him. He has the best guy friends. He toasts to them at the rehearsal dinner, unafraid to shed a tear in the process, and they eagerly take a knee and pray for him before going down the aisle. There’s a Captain America air to him radiating not just from his Marvel socks, but also from the strength and goodness of his heart. He is a Sarah Lin groom.

The Sarah Lin couple

values family and takes time to visit and Facetime home often. Their parents and siblings are anticipating their wedding just as much as they are. They enjoy date nights in trying new recipes and watching The Office just as much as date nights out exploring their city and hunting for the best local restaurants and aesthetics.   They’re playful and flirtatious, the kind of people that laugh a lot and share their hearts openly. They have been through deep waters in their time together and more than anything are looking forward to building a home and life that is uniquely theirs. Everyone around them knows they’re the real deal: best friends in love, not so sucked up in romance that they can’t handle the messes they both create, yet not so sedated by the mess that they can’t see how even their small moments hold the deepest joys. They are a Sarah Lin couple.
