This past weekend was one I'll never forget. I was commissioned the job of photographing two of my best friends in the world, Sarah Money & Chad Craft. Their engagement has been a much heralded one and if you know anything about either of these two people, you understand why. Chad was the lifelong bachelor whom most had given up the idea of even trying to set him up or see him "married off" but Sarah had different plans and this new year's eve found Chad down on one knee in Jackson Square proposing to her as 2009 rolled in. They are perfect together and though I'll readily proclaim what a great guy she is getting- he could not have found a better girl than Sarah. We joked throughout the day about her non-stop beautiful megawatt smile which to my delight often brings out a huge grin on his face as well. She is bubbly and sweet and just an incredibly wonderful lady and she makes him happy as he obviously does for her. Because these two are such great friends to me and my husband, we decided to make a day of it in New Orleans, (the place Chad and Sarah call "their city") and as a result I ended up with hundreds of pictures. Gotta say, I don't envy them a bit in trying to decide on their favorites but in the meantime, here are just a few of mine. Congratulations to Chad & Sarah! I love y'all and wish you a blessed and full life of happiness and love.
