Whether or not you opt for a backyard wedding or an adventurous elopement, this is your day—we can do whatever you want. You want to stuff your face with pizza or take a round of shots with your love? How about going surfing or ATVing?! Let’s do it! I’m up for anything and any place if it means your day is exactly what you pictured. I'm so down to help any couple craft the most epic elopement day full of activities you love doing. That's the best part about eloping... doing whatever you want!

Together we'll create a day that is intimate and romantic, while also having a blast. If you want to avoid all the traditional wedding drama, the million decisions you have to make, and explore in nature instead, I'll be there! 

"But Sarah, part of why we're eloping is not loving all eyes on us and having our photo taken!" Don't worry, it won't be an all day photo shoot! We'll spend the day doing what you love, reading vows, popping bubbly, playing music, etc. I fall somewhere between documentary and posed photography. I wont be intrusive and will give you your space, but will also guide you to make sure your photos look epic. When you look back at these photos, I want you to remember how happy you felt. 

You deserve photos that look and feel just like you.

If you’re interested in having me photograph your big day, we’ll schedule a FaceTime chat so we can get to know one another and make sure we’re a great fit. We’ll discuss your needs so I can create the perfect package for you. And you’ll probably get to meet my dog, Rex, as a bonus!

Step 01: Let’s Connect

After you’ve booked me, I’ll help you plan your timeline and select the best locations. You'll receive my extensive elopement guide that's packed with information. 

Step 02: Planning

Once your big day arrives, I will be there to document each special moment and take the stress off of your shoulders by helping things go smoothly and making you feel at ease in front of the camera.

Step 03: Your Big Day

You will receive a sneak peek within 48 hours of your engagement session or wedding. Following that, I will deliver your remaining edited images via an online gallery in record time!

Step 04: Delivering Your Images

How It Works

Since each wedding day and session is just as unique as each couple, I will create a custom proposal that suits your needs, including any desired add-ons. Below are the starting rates and inclusions for your investment. If you need more coverage, a second shooter, or any other add-on, let’s chat through it with a consultation so I can build a custom package that’s perfect for you. We can also discuss album design, so your photos don’t just exist on your computer forever.

Weddings

Most of my couples feel this way, but I help them feel confident during their session. I will do my best to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Whether it’s telling jokes or playing your favorite playlist, I promise your nerves will be nowhere in sight. I will also guide you with natural movement, so your photos look anything but stiff.

Question 1: What if we’re awkward in front of the camera?

While this is entirely up to you, I recommend investing in an engagement session for a couple of reasons. My photography approach is getting to know you well, so your photos genuinely reflect you and your love. An engagement sesh is a perfect time for us to connect on a deeper level before your big day. It's also a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera. Feeling a bit nervous and awkward when having your photo taken is entirely natural, so think of an engagement session as a practice run. Engagement sessions can make for some incredible wedding decorations too!

Question 2: Do we need an engagement session?

Although I'm confident in my ability to shoot all of my weddings solo, I recommend second photographers for larger weddings or when couples are getting ready, preventing me from being with them both. Second photographers can provide another perspective to your day and an alternate angle of every situation. We can chat more about if this a necessary option for your wedding on a consultation call.

Question 3: Why include a second photographer?

Nope! I don't provide any unedited or raw files since so much of the final photos’ magic happens during the editing process. 

Question 4: Do you give us the raw photos?

You can expect to receive 50-75 final hand-edited images per hour of coverage. Following your wedding day, I'll remove any photos you wouldn't want or need (people blinking, blurry, etc.) and deliver the rest of the edited images. Don't worry; I promise I won't withhold any photos I think you'll want. I will provide your pictures in an online gallery with a copyright print release.

Question 5: How many images do you include?

I know how excited you’ll be to share, so I’ll send you a sneak peek of a few photos within 48 hours of your wedding, followed by the full gallery within 6-8 weeks. For engagement sessions, I will deliver your photos within 2-3 weeks. 

Question 6: When will I receive my images?

Frequently Asked

Audrey Hartley

“Sarah is an absolutely incredible photographer and person! Taking photos with her is so much fun! Being in front of a camera makes me extremely nervous, but with Sarah, it's easy. She makes you feel so comfortable. Her photos are not overly posed. They feel natural, they have movement, they capture you as you are, and that is perfect! On top of everything else, her prices are reasonable, your photos will be edited and returned to you quickly, and she is a genuinely good person. What more could you ask for?”

Sarah creates magic!

Alice Cruikshank

“Sarah is a very talented photographer who made us feel very comfortable on our wedding day. We had to change our wedding plans due to the COVID pandemic, and she was incredibly flexible. We had a great variety of pictures, and the turnaround was impressively quick. She wasn't phased by the rainy weather- she even brought extra umbrellas for us! My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with our wedding pictures and Sarah's service. We would work with her again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend her to friends and family."

Surpassed expectations.

Dana Swanson

“Sarah is an amazing photographer. Not only does she really listen, but she is also an amazing person who has so much pride and love for what she does. As a plus-sized bride, I was nervous about getting my pictures taken, but she always made me feel comfortable and beautiful. Sarah was so accommodating in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, which made me cry with relief. She always made me feel at ease and was willing to chat even the night before my wedding when I accidentally stained my fresh manicure with blue paint. Most importantly, the pictures were perfect and exactly what I wanted.”
