When you think about your wedding day, what is your dream? My hope is when your celebration comes to a close, you will always remember what it felt like to be lost in moments so joyful and love-filled that time stood still. It’s these moments, and the people and details that make them come alive, that I believe you will treasure forever. 

I love listening to romantic stories about your relationship and bringing them to life through my lens, crafting timelines that always include extra time for portraits, and becoming fast friends with you, your love, and everyone in your wedding party. I have an affinity for pastel color palettes, gorgeous details, natural light-filled venues, and candid photos that share every in-between moment. Most of all, I believe in shining a light on the start of your marriage because this story – your story –will be your family’s favorite to relive for generations to come.

I believe in capturing couples on their most monumental of days, and your wedding day is definitely at the top of that list.

From behind my lens, allow me to create heirloom images while you celebrate your marriage.

I believe the journey is just as important as the destination, which is why I am a forever fan of engagement sessions. These sessions allow you to become comfortable in front of the camera, so any nervousness you may feel about having professional images taken will fade away long before your wedding day. I’ll guide your poses, you bring your personalities and fun. I promise we’ll feel like best friends at the end of your session. A complimentary  engagement session is included in every wedding collection.

The Wedding Process

We will work together to find the perfect date and location for your engagement session. I generally recommend holding your engagement session 6-9 months out from your wedding date. We will spend up to 2 hours together and no need to be nervous - I'll coach you through every step of the way. This is a great opportunity to get to know each other and get comfortable in front of the camera. I’ll arrive on your wedding day already knowing how you two interact, what your best poses are and how to photograph you in a genuine way!

HOW HE ASKED

THE KNOT MAGAZINE

I capture beautiful details and become friends with my couples as they celebrate their biggest days, and that alone feels like a dream. To receive kind words from the duos I capture and see their weddings published is an honor I feel so lucky to share with you. Thank you for supporting the work I love!  

Press & Praise

 Having photos that capture all of the love and emotions that we felt on our wedding day is such a blessing!! I’m in love with my images and so grateful for all of the hard work that Sarah provided on my wedding day.

"She helped me stay calm and collected, all the while helping us get the shots we wanted"

She knows your best angles, and how to capture the small details that may be overlooked by someone else. She has great tips to bring out natural laugher between the two of you. When it came time, she was beyond prepared and ready with timelines of exactly how the day will go. 

"She loves tacos and enjoys adventures— who wouldn’t want to hangout with someone like that!?"

Leading up to the wedding, she provided a detailed timeline of the day that I used to help plan literally every other aspect of my wedding. She navigated the busy streets of Philadelphia to get us all of the shots that were most important and did an amazing job capturing the emotion of the day... and she got us our photos back super quick! 

"One of THE BEST decisions we made in our wedding planning process"
