I belive that life is most beautiful when it is lived. This is why I am a documentary and lifestyle photographer. Your wedding and your life is perfectly imperfect and every smile, every laugh, every tear is an opportunity to capture the raw and honest moments that make up your authentic love story. After capturing over 170 weddings, i've chosen to primarily focus on small and intimate weddings which allow me to truely connect with you and your family in order to tell the most complete story of your day.

Would pick Sarah again & again!
Meeting Sarah and getting to know her through our wedding planning process has been a bright spot in 2020! She was incredibly flexible, calm and reassuring when covid changed our engagement shoot and wedding plans multiple times. She sent us the most thoughtful little gift box after we signed our contract. During our engagement shoot she made my not-photo-loving husband feel comfortable in front of the camera! She listened carefully to what mattered to us, and did a beautiful job capturing our personalities in the pictures. After our 'minimony' ceremony, Sarah navigated us to some of her favorite spots in Old Town Alexandria, and even though we had never been there before, she managed to make it look & feel like us!
The day after our ceremony, when Sarah sent our sneak peek of photos, I started crying tears of joy! The whole day before had been a beautiful (and somewhat stressful) whirlwind, but as soon as I saw the pictures, and the way that Sarah captured our love, I immediately felt the lingering stress melt away. Sarah is incredibly talented and fun to be around-- I cannot recommend her highly enough.Sent on 11/23/2020

Better than we could have imagined
Sarah was amazing. From our first discussion, she was wonderful and professional (but not at all pushy). She helped us craft a plan that stayed in our budget and produced hundreds of incredible pictures of a small, private ceremony and a second day of a larger reception. Her documentary style captured the unique feelings of both days. She put together a sneak peek in less than a day from our ceremony so we could display it at the reception. People raved about her work at the reception. She was wonderful to have around and spend time with; we spent a good bit of our actual wedding day with her taking photos around the District. Seeing picture from our reception and ceremony, I didn’t even realize she was there most of the time. She was able to capture amazing photos while not taking away from what was going on and allowing everyone to stay in the moment. In addition to all this, we had some major life events in the months before our wedding and changed the date twice. She was flexible, understanding, and incredibly supportive as we dealt with some difficult times. I wish I had more events for Sarah to photograph!Sent on 11/12/2019

So Glad We Went With Santa Ana
We went with Santa Ana photography for our engagement and wedding photographs, and we could not be happier. Sarah was a pleasure to work with, and our photographs came out looking better than we could have imagined.
She did our engagement photos in Alexandria, an area she appeared to know pretty well. The locations she chose to shoot at were diverse and gave us a good range of photos. We did our first look at the National Portrait Gallery, which was a beautiful experience that I will never forget.
The photos of our wedding day themselves were also great. Somehow Sarah managed to get good photos of virtually ever guest there which was quite an achievement because we had a pretty big wedding.
In short, Santa Ana photography was everything we could have hoped for and more. Save yourself a lot of stress and go with Santa Ana!Sent on 06/22/2019
