    I am more than just another vendor showing up to do a job.

    I show up for you HARD on your wedding day so you can just relax. I will free you up to soak in every moment while my brain is going 100 miles an hour making sure I don't miss any of the mushy goodness you want to remember. I'll stay out of the way and let the day unfold naturally—cross my heart I won't make you do cheesy poses that don't feel like you.

    I promise to tell you when you have lipstick on your teeth and fix your hair if it's doing something weird. I'll re-fluff your dress like a madwoman for every shot because you're only wearing that thing once and it better look good! I'll run and grab you a mimosa while your hair is getting done. Consider me an auxiliary bridesmaid with a camera.

    Your experience with me is just as important as the photos I give you.

    The photos I take will remind you how you felt–and that's why it's so important to me to make you feel like yourself in front of the camera.

    I give you your space during the intimate moments (like when you say your vows), and I pop back in to offer advice when it's time for portraits. I put you at ease so you feel free to be who you are together. I get that you’re not models (yet), so I’ll give you direction to make you super comfy in front of the camera so we can get those killer shots!

    Sarah is amazing! Not only she is an incredible photographer, but she is such a sweet and kind person. Her positive energy and happy demeanor made the whole experience so easy and comfortable. She remembered every single shot we had discussed previously and made sure we took them during the wedding. We had such a hard time picking our photographer and now looking back at our day and at the pictures, we can't imagine anyone better!


    Sarah was the perfect photographer for us. She completely understood us and captured our personalities in each photo. On the day of our wedding, she was a true gift. She corralled our huge family and wedding party like a pro, captured all the shots we requested, and made sure there was plenty of time to get couple shots. The final product was excellent -- we love our wedding photos and are so thankful Sarah was able to capture so many genuine moments of joy and fun.


    Sarah is a dream to work with. She shot my engagements and bridals, and we absolutely loved the photos. She’s truly an artist, catching those perfect moments through shots that leave you breathless. She captured the laughs, the intimacy and that look he gives me that makes me fall in love all over again. And she does it with charm and humor and professionalism. Thank you!!

    Hey there, I'm Sarah.

    I’m from the beautiful mountains of Utah. I graduated with a BFA in photography, before moving to New York City to chase my photography dreams.

    Currently, I’m photographing lots of weddings and portraits near New York City, and I love bringing my camera along to adventures all over the country and overseas.

    On any given night, you can catch me and my sexy husband swing dancing somewhere in the city or in the kitchen cooking up some tasty Indian-fusion dinner. We cuddle with our two floofy kitties every night (they give us no choice!), and spend as much time in the mountains as we can.

    How I'll approach your wedding

    I had the absolute inexpressible joy of marrying the love of my life just last September. Our wedding day was intimate and adventurous, and perfectly us. Experiencing all the emotions of a wedding day as a bride—sneaking a glance at your sisters beaming up at you during the ceremony, tearing up as your college roommate happy cries how long she’s wanted this for you, seeing your parents embrace your new husband’s family as their own—it’s more than a human can possibly contain in your heart without exploding. This new perspective reignited my passion for capturing these precious memories for couples and everyone they love. You may not remember what flavor your wedding cake was 50 years down the road, but you’ll always have your wedding photos to remind you of all the love that surrounds the two of you.

    I’m a sucker for romance, and my work reflects that. I’m drawn to classic imagery that feels timeless and natural. I’m a big fan of movement, earthy tones and natural light. I describe my style as “free-spirited documentary”—I create moments where you forget you’re being photographed, and feel free to be who you are together. I also get that you’re not models (yet), so I’ll give you direction to help you look fantastic and feel comfortable in front of the camera.

    Creating photographs is a collaboration between me and you, and I need you to bring your A-game too! I’ll keep things chill and promise not to judge your silly faces. Don’t be afraid to open up and show me what you love most about your relationship.
