I could go on and on about how many things *almost* went wrong on my end of this photo shoot. But praise the Lord that everything worked out. For these first shots below we have Josh bringing Sarah Jane out to the beach to begin the proposal. Don’t they look perfect together?
Josh + Sarah Jane // A Beach Project Proposal
If you know Josh and Sarah Jane, you know what love looks like. These two met at Beach Project 2013, started dating, both came to Beach Project 2014 as team leaders, and while we were there he asked her to be his wife.
The picture below is one of my favorites. After hearing the love of his life say yes to the most important questions he’s ever asked her, Josh immediately picked Sarah Jane up, swung her around in his arms, and threw up a fist of success.
“Hey Sarah Jane, look over there…” SURPRISE, Katie’s here and she just captured everything on camera!
When they walked back over the hill to the Sandman they were met by several of their close friends and some of their Beach Project family. This, of course, was followed by hugs, hugs, more hugs, and a few more hugs. And of course a few brief descriptions of how the proposal went down.
Now that all of the friends had been able to celebrate with them for a little while, it was back to the beach for a few semi-peaceful moments together (despite my camera being in their faces the whole time). This was just the best part of the evening for me. Getting to capture a few more shots of these two so freshly-engaged lovebirds was the sweetest thing. Their love for each other is so evident.
Josh and Sarah Jane, thank you for letting me be a small part of this day. It was truly an honor to be able to capture these memories for two such special people. Serving alongside you guys this summer was a blast. Thank you for showing me and everyone else on project what Christ-centered love looks like. I cannot wait to see the ways the Lord uses your marriage. I love you guys!
