I love my amazing family, adventures, a good quote, and trips to Target! I am happiest exploring a new place preferably in the mountains somewhere.
 
I truly believe in the fact that everything happens for a reason and that this industry is my calling because I still landed myself here after putting my camera down and for-going a scholarship and admission to an Art School for Photography 7 years ago. But, here I am today as a proud Penn State Alumnus with my Bachelor’s in Business Management and Marketing, using it to drive this passion of mine. If you had told me I would be where I am today, back when photography was just a hobby of mine, I would’ve called you crazy! I chose a different path yet I was still led here and I know that’s for a reason. It’s still a little surreal that I get to call meeting all you wonderful people and having the sweet privilege of capturing your love story and love for life my job!
 
Photography has just always been a mindset for me. I think I naturally see things in a different way than most. I like to get really creative no matter what the task may be. My favorite thing is capturing someone in his or her own, candid, moment. I love the people that this business brings into my life and I look forward to meeting you!
 
“I am a Photographer. I am a manipulator of light. A magician who can stop time. An enchanter, who can make your heart beat faster or take your breath away with one fascinating image. I can whisk you away to places you have never been and bring you back to people and places you’ll never see again. I will freeze motion entirely or weave a story into a single frame. I can show you adventures you’ve not yet imagined, and beauty so petal soft and fleeting you’ll see it in your mind’s eye forever. I am an Artist. I am a Spellbinder. I am a Photographer.“

I live for first looks, cute moments, exchanging of hand-written 
vows, and those “as soon as I saw them I knew” speeches. I guess you could say I am a hopeless romantic.

Sarah is amazing at what she does. She will undoubtedly be the best decision you make for your special day!!!! Her style is bright and clean and SO pretty. She made my husband and I so comfortable on our wedding day, and she had our whole wedding party cracking up! I am in LOVE with the photos that she took and would recommend Sarah to anyone- for any occasion.

As soon as we met Sarah, I knew instantly she was the photographer for our wedding. Sarah photographed both our engagement shoot and our wedding. She was so easy to work with and was always happy and friendly. Neither my husband or myself had ever had professional pictures taken but she was able to make us feel at ease and help direct us with specific poses. She provided us with sneak peeks of both events within a few days and we had all of our engagement photos within two weeks. We can’t wait to see the rest of our wedding photos and highly recommend Sarah to anyone lookin for a wedding photographer!

Neither my husband nor I have ever really enjoyed “having our picture taken”, but I have to admit that our engagement session was the most fun I had ever had! Sarah just had a way of getting us to relax, be ourselves, and enjoy the moment. If I thought our engagement session went well, our wedding day was even more amazing!

Sarah was amazing! She listened to my wife and I 100%. She gave us photos and memories that will last forever!!! I would highly highly recommend her to anyone!!!

From the first time we met, she put us at ease, had us laughing, relaxed, and having a good time. Sarah is a joy to work with. She's more than your photographer, she's your friend. She helped calm my nerves and made sure I felt confident and beautiful. And she wrangled our crazy families with ease, which is a miracle in and of itself. Her photography is simply STUNNING. She captures the moments between moments. The wind whipping through your veil, or the small smile in the middle of your vows, the single tear your groom sheds. Through her images, you can truly feel the emotion of the day. Her attention to detail is amazing.
