INTIMATE. ELEGANT.

NOSTALGIC. INTENTIONAL.

connection with my clients is the foundation of my work

my perspective

As a Mom, I've been humbled and stretched in ways I never knew I could. It's made me re-think the way I go about my process with everything that steps in front of my camera. My Dad passed away while I was pregnant with my daughter and never got to meet her. Every image I have of him is sacred. I sometimes photograph the last images taken of people. Your images are cherished and it's my job to pay attention to the emotion, the detail and the joy.

It's intentional imagery serving generations.

I place a high value on the opportunity to document your story, because I get to be a part of the rest of your lives. Whenever you re-live these memories, I get to transport you back to how it felt. When I show up to capture your wedding day, I take on the role of a part of your family. I will treat your friends and family as if they are my own and I've known them for years. My couples and the connection I have them with is the muse and the inspiration for my work. It's why you can FEEL my imagery.

- Sarah

my sweet family & my inspiration.

Sarah is truly incredible. My husband and I hired Sarah to photograph our engagement photos and our microwedding, which was included in one package. Before we even met Sarah, she wanted to talk to my husband and I on the phone to get to know us, which immediately set her apart in our minds. Sarah is thoughtful, personable, professional and so kind-hearted. My husband and I are a bit camera shy and aren’t the most photogenic but Sarah made us feel so comfortable. As soon as we saw our engagement photos, we knew that we had made the right choice in picking Sarah. Our photos turned out beautifully and she captured the essence of our relationship. My husband and I ran into multiple challenges as we planned our wedding from changing our date and location to experiencing complications with COVID and altitude sickness. Without skipping a beat, Sarah worked with us along the way and reassured us that we would have the best wedding day. On the day of our wedding, Sarah was ready bright and early to capture our special moments and did much more than photograph our day. She assisted our vendors in navigating any challenges, talked to our families like they were hers and took the most beautiful photos. She did all of this while being 8 months pregnant! Her husband also came to assist and they were the sweetest couple who captured all our special moments! Since we had such an intimate wedding it was important to us to vibe with our vendors since we’d spend more time with them and Sarah and her husband fit in perfectly. When my husband and I look at our wedding photos, we really feel like we’re there again. Through Sarah’s work, we’re able to relive this day and will for many years to come! She is truly the best in the biz!

Where do I even begin?! We had the privilege of working with Sarah for our wedding photography, first off, her work truly speaks for itself. Sarah is simply amazing at what she does and incredibly talented at capturing real authentic moments. Not only is she passionate about photography, but her genuine heart and ability to find beauty in the small details shines brightly. I can confidently say her photos rival veteran photographers, and her dedication and work ethic are equally unmatched. From day one after my inquiry, she showed up every single time. From emails, texts, phone calls, to coffee meet ups, she has been on top of it all, making the planning process easy and seamless. I joke that she took on the role of photographer, planner, and friend. Words cannot express how blessed and full our hearts are that Sarah was part of our wedding day and captured memories that will last a lifetime.

Where do I even begin? To know Sarah is to love Sarah and feel loved! We’ve been working with Sarah for about 3 years now and this past weekend we had her shoot our most important day, our wedding! Sarah was intentional, kind, fun, and truly just so wonderful all day long. She made our whole wedding party and family feel comfortable in front of a camera, everyone was raving all day about how sweet Sarah was. When you hire Sarah, you’re getting more than a photographer! Sarah made sure our day ran smoothly and was with us every step of the way. She is a true gem and the best human you will ever meet.


Sarah provided a sneak peek gallery less than 24 hours after our wedding and the raw emotions she caught from the day are something we will never be able to repay her for. The love we felt all day long gleam through the photos and we could not be more thankful that.


Do yourself a favor and hire Sarah for all of your photo needs, but certainly for your wedding! We are Sarah’s biggest fans, forever!
