I’m the photographer who’s right there with you on your wedding day, documenting all your loved ones coming together to celebrate that #bestdayever. I pride myself on getting right in there and capturing that split second of a moment, like when your dad starts tearing up during his toast Uncle Bernie drops to the dance floor for the worm. I know exactly when to step in and pull your family together for a killer, classic portrait that will hang in your family’s home for years. Most importantly, I'll help you guys feel comfortable and relax in front of the camera throughout your wedding day, giving you natural and genuine photos!

I capture images that showcase your personalities, relationship, and really epic party. After all, love isn’t boring, why should your photos be?

“Sarah was the absolute best decision we made when it came to our wedding vendors. Not only is her photography beautiful, personal, fresh, and happy, but her knowledge about weddings in general was invaluable to us and really helped us with timing and flow -it was perfect! The day of, she was so calm, cool, and collected which made us relax and have a good time! There are a lot of people who claim to be photographers nowadays, but Sarah is truly an expert in her field, both professionally and artistically. Our wedding pictures beautifully capture they joy we felt that day and we couldn't ask for anything more than that. Seriously, if you are on the fence about a wedding (or anything) photographer, you've hit the jackpot with Sarah!”
