About Sarah Rittenour Photography
Hello! I'm Sarah.
I imagine you're here because you need a photographer. Whether you're having a big ol' wedding or a small intimate elopement, I just want to capture all the amazing fun you and your SO have.
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 those 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."
I've never been much for tradition, so you can imagine weddings were never really my "thing" when I first picked up a camera. People always told me never to photograph weddings and I didn't second guess that opinion.
Even in terms of photography, I've always admired the unconventional. Photographers like Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, and David LaChapelle drew me in because they did something just a little odd and different. They're also amazing storytellers in their own unique ways. The storytelling aspect of photography is actually what lead me into shooting weddings.
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.
So, if you have an epic adventure you'd like me to document, send me a message. I'd love to see what we can do together!
