Hello! I'm Sarah.
I imagine you're here because you need a photographer. And if I'm lucky, you're looking for someone who can join you on an adventure. Whether that be a big ol' wedding party, a small intimate elopement, a coastal drive, or a forest hike, I just want to capture all the amazing fun you and your partner have.
I've never been much for tradition, so you can imagine weddings were never really my "thing" when I first picked up a camera.
While I still wouldn't call myself a "wedding person," I have discovered that the wedding industry has been evolving away from the old cookie-cutter format and that is what keeps me doing what I do. My favorite weddings are the ones where the couple's personalities show throughout the day rather than getting lost in all the things they "have" to do. I love being part of a day filled with so much love and excitement and what I aim to do is find you in all of it. Because weddings aren't about fitting into a mold anymore - they're about you getting to celebrate your love.
I'd call it a weird fusion of fashion and documentary style photography, with just a little bit of quirk. I believe that photography is just as much about the experience as it is about the images themselves. If you don't enjoy yourself on a shoot or on your wedding day, you won't look back at your photos and feel that happy fluttering in your stomach. It will almost feel fake. That's not what I want and that's not what you want, so my goal is to make sure that when you're looking at your photos 10 years from now, you're thinking, "that was such an amazing day."

Sarah worked hard to build a personal connection and make us feel at ease
Working with Sarah was such a lovely experience! Before our mini ceremony she took the extra time to really get to know us and try to understand what we were looking for out of our photos. She asked us questions like our favorite things about each other, how we view ourselves as a couple, and whether we have any insecurities about how we look in photos, and she even took the extra time to scout locations near the venue before the big day. Although we only met her in person once, she stepped into the wedding day hubbub seamlessly, and it felt easy to be ourselves around her. While we were naturally tired by the end of the day, it was so worth it - Sarah's photos captured the energy and warmth of that day perfectly! We're so pleased with how everything came out. Between Sarah's sweet personality, professionalism, and talent, we'd recommend her any day!Sent on 10/24/2020

Sarah is so wonderful and takes absolutely gorgeous photos.
Sarah was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was supportive, sensitive, and so much fun. The photos she took of our special day are absolutely stunning (and I don't normally say that about any photo I'm in!).Sent on 05/27/2020

Loved working with Sarah for our simple, sweet elopement!
Sarah was absolutely wonderful to work with for our elopement in Pacifica, CA at Shelldance Orchid Gardens. We are usually pretty shy in front of the camera, and she made us feel super comfortable. At some points, we even forgot she was there! From the very beginning, Sarah took an interest in learning about us and made sure our love was shining through in the final product. The photos were impeccable. Thank you, Sarah, for everything!Sent on 03/15/2020
