Capturing memories
Pristine quality
Seasoned with weddings


I was an avid reader as a child. There were fewer things more pleasant than curling up in a quiet corner and getting lost in a story. My parents wisely kept our shelves well-stocked with biographies and historical fiction, and reading real-life stories made an indelible imprint on my soul and worldview.

I learned that everyone has a story worth telling, and that even the smallest experience could change the course of a person’s life. I held a deep belief that there were (and are!) beautiful and true stories of grace happening in the world every day, and those stories should be cherished, remembered, and retold, for the good of others.

I pursued international nonprofit photojournalism before stumbling into wedding photography in 2008. My years of experience in this field have only served to deepen my belief in the impact of stories.

Because of this, I believe in marriages— that strong marriages have the potential to change the course of history, and that the story of your love should be cherished, remembered, and retold for generations. I believe in timeless wedding photographs that will last a lifetime, for marriages that will last a lifetime. Because your story matters.

Amazing dc wedding photos!

Sarah Bradshaw is an incredible photographer - our wedding photos have exceeded my expectations in every way. I have had so many people say our photos look like they came straight out of a magazine! Sarah gave us great advice throughout the entire process - from wedding planning to the day of the wedding - and was super responsive and always so pleasant to be around! I cannot get over how beautiful both our engagement and wedding pictures are and I am so thankful that I had Sarah to document the most wonderful day of our lives! She is simply the best! If you're getting married in the DC area, don't hesitate, book her now!

Thank you, sarah!

The most organized, kind and thoughtful photographer! Sarah was the first photographer I met with and after meeting her, I knew she had to be the photographer to shoot our wedding! She is so talented. We are so happy Sarah was there to guide us as we re-planned our covid wedding. She was flexible with the constant change of plans as covid-19 guidelines kept changing and made suggestions based on her 10+ years experience. She helped us map out our timeline so we were best able to utilize our 8 hrs of photographer time. The months leading up to the wedding and the day of, we felt so comfortable with her. THANK YOU, SARAH!
