the Journal

I'm Sarah Leying: friend of God, photographer of marriage & family, and hopeless romantic. On this journal, I share my recent work, experiences, and personal journey with Jesus, art, heritage, and learning to capturing the nuance of Love and life in still photographs.

Welcome, and I hope you stay a while.

Quiet Lakeside Portraits with Jac & Andrew

Jac, Andrew and I got together back in February to photograph this quiet set of early-morning portraits. We spent a lot of time huddled in jackets, laughing over funny expressions, and getting creative with directing in the cold temperatures!

Jac and Andrew were featured a few days ago in one of my favorite publications, The White Wren. Here they are again to brighten your day and inspire your next dressy couples session! This water-inspired bouquet, filled with Queen Anne’s Lace and a healthy helping of wisteria, was designed by Grace Funderburk; Jac’s dress is by Mes Demoiselles, and film images were shot on Portra 400 and processed by TheFINDLab.
