I'm Hannah, the photographer behind Sparrow and Lace Photography. I've been married for 3 and a half years to the love of my life, and it's been hands down the best 3 and a half years of my life. 

Marriage has taught me so much about what it means to love another person, and so much about the extent of God's love for us. My marriage to Derek pushes me daily to try to be the best version of myself possible. When I struggle, Derek is there to lift me up, encourage me, and motivate me to allow my struggles to make me stronger. He's also there to celebrate every joy, mountaintop, and milestone with me. Even the small ones. Waking up next to him and falling asleep next to him hasn't gotten old yet, and I hope it never does! 

What I'm hoping to express through Beyond the Vows, is that you are more than just clients to me. You wedding day will definitely be one of the best days of your life. It will be beautiful, and so much hard work will go into making it perfect! But even more important than that, you are starting a marriage on that day. And while I will work my absolute hardest to capture your wedding day in the best way possible, that isn't my only goal. I want to encourage you, support you, and fight for your marriage. I want you to know that it's more than just a job for me. I want you to know that you've truly got someone cheering you on as you begin one of the most beautiful journeys this life has to offer. 

I'm so excited for you to join me for these sessions, + I'm so excited to capture your real, raw, authentic relationship, and help you take a moment to remember why you said those vows in the first place.
