Sarah Canning

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 4 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.

You’ve been dreaming this day since you were young. Now you’re beginning to panic and stress-- There are so many decisions, plans, and arrangements to be made! As a wedding photographer, I want to make this one aspect of the planning process simple for you. Wedding photography is not just about pictures, it is about the experience. Your time with me should be relaxed and enjoyable throughout the whole process - from start to finish. My real job as a wedding photographer is to serve my couples, even if it's non photo-related… on the wedding day I become your boutonniere pinner, advil grabber, dress fluffer, and timeline extraordinaire! But, your experience goes way beyond just your big day. You will look at these images for years and years to come. I want to capture those priceless moments that will come together to reveal your personal love story. When you’re comfortable and having fun, genuine, joyful images happen! I want your wedding images to always be able to take you back to that day and remind you of how you felt in that very moment over and over again. What a blessing it is that my job is to capture photos that will become a family’s heritage. I hope to fill mantles for years and years to come!

04. my process

One way I ensure that our brides and grooms enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with my couples. A bride and groom should connect with and trust their photographer. I love getting to know my clients through an ENGAGEMENT SESSION. This gives you a chance to warm up in front of the camera and be familiar with the way I work before the big day. When your wedding day arrives we’ll feel like old friends and you’ll be ready to rock and roll. My favorite moments are those where you are in your own little candid moment with the love of your life and it’s like I’m not even there. I assist in posing you, but I also step back and let you be you so I can tell your true story and let your personalities shine through.
