About Sarah Rittenour Photography

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.


My Story

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.


My Style

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."

    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!

    Perfect elopement

    Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with for our elopement. I can't fully express just how much fun she was and how well she captured the love my husband and I have for one another. We did not have any guests present, and at times I would forget that because she felt like one of our friends! I'm so happy that we chose her to capture the start of our lives together. Maybe in a few years she'll be open to maternity/baby sessions! :)
