the engagement

Every love story begins long before the exchanging of vows –and these chapters of your romance deserve to be celebrated. Engagement sessions are the perfect way to capture the more intimate glimpses of just the two of you in a unique environment that embodies your relationship. 

I’m a big fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. First, they give us a chance to know each other better, which is ideal if you’ve also booked me for your wedding day. Second, you both can showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

From location backdrops to complimenting outfits and everything in between, I make sure your engagement photos shine with love, laughter, and intimate authenticity.

Our wedding photos looked amazing. Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with on our big day. 

Her style has a very natural feel and the emotions she captures in her portraits are genuine. We wanted wedding photos that felt real rather than overly slick. We met her in advance and she has such an easy going nature. It was very easy to work with her given all the photos that occur. 

We had an outdoor wedding and she did an amazing job with the bright sun and dusk. The photos she took captured so many special moments that every time we look at the photos we feel we are reliving the moment. I would highly recommend working with Sarah for anyone looking for a stress free wedding or event with beautiful photos!

Sarah knows how to get the best and most natural shots.

Sarah is the best! She did our engagement shoot in the spring and our wedding in October! She is personable, sweet, fun, funny, and so warm! She is so easy and fun to work with! And fast! She knows how to get the best and most natural shots. My family and bridal party loved her! She knows exactly what she is doing. I can't wait to do another session with her in the future! I can't wait to see all the wedding photos too! It will be like Christmas morning when we see them! She sent some us over to us the night of the wedding and they were lovely!

Sarah's exceptionally professional while maintaining a fun, personable nature.

Having worked with a number of photographers over the years, Sarah is everything you could ever ask for. She's exceptionally professional while maintaining a fun, personable nature.

I loved that I could put aside my type-A personality and just trust that she had everything planned.

Sarah is a ROCKSTAR photographer! 

I just had my wedding photos taken by Sarah and WOW I love them! I've had shoots before with photographers where the photos look great, but I look completely uncomfortable and awkward. Sarah was a total comedian the whole time, making me laugh and feel so comfortable, 


I will definitely be hiring Sarah again and recommend her to all my friends. I looked at her wedding portfolio and the shots are so beautiful and evoke real emotion. Thank you Sarah!!

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes. In my years of experience, I photographed a handful of events myself and quickly came to realize that having a second photographer allows there to be more variation in the angles captured and more detailed photos of your gorgeous florals, family members, candids, etc. A second photographer ensures everything will run smoothly and we can be in two places at once.
