we believe in a tailored client experience, nostalgic wedding details, and timeless style for generations yet to come
Your grandmother's pearl earrings—given to her by your grandfather. A vintage photograph from their wedding day, worn and frayed around the edges from years tucked into in his wallet. An intricately embroidered handkerchief once carried down the aisle by your mother on her own wedding day. A venue brimming with rich history; walls that hold stories from ages past and ages yet to unfold. These are the details that make our hearts flutter: the common threads that tie your love story to the generation before and the generations yet to come.
Your wedding day is a meaningful chapter in the greater legacy of your love story. Our desire is to capture your love story in classic style, creating timeless imagery that your grandchildren will treasure as much as you do. This is a cherished chapter of your story, and we are honored to walk through it alongside you. We consider it an utmost privilege to document your cherished sentimental moments, and we are honored to preserve your love story through heirloom photography.

I hired Sarah to do anniversary photos at The Cliffs of Moher in Ireland to surprise my wife. Sarah was incredibly responsive and helped me plan everything down to what I should wear and what I should tell my wife to wear. When we were at the Cliffs we were naturally surrounded by hundreds of other tourists but Sarah managed to make it feel like we were the only people there that day. Both my wife and I commented on how we have never felt more comfortable in front of a camera.The pictures? Amazing! Stunning! Incredible! We have never looked more like models in our lives. I would hire her again in an instant and plan to do so again in the future. She is personable, easy to communicate with, honest, and incredibly talented. She is a true professional.

Working with Sarah has been a dream. From the first time I met her she made sure that all of her focus was on me and my wedding day. She creates a fun relaxed environment for everybody she works with and it shows in the pictures she takes. To say that she pampers her customers is an understatement. She is the whole package and more. Her pictures are only a small reflection of my wedding day! Sarah made sure that the day was all about my husband and I and I could not have done the day without her. Finding somebody to capture your wedding day is a daunting task but I'm extremely grateful to have her as not only my photographer but also part wedding planner and now friend. Her warm and bubbly personality made my wedding party feel comfortable and it shows through the natural and gorgeous pictures she takes. I'm so grateful to have had such a wonderful person capture our day and I would HIGHLY recommend her. Thank you Sarah!!

Sarah photographed my wedding back in June 2019 and working with her was an absolute joy! Sarah is so sweet, relatable, organized, and professional (total package)! The forecast for my wedding day was rain all day which of course was a total stressor leading up to the wedding. Sarah was sweet enough to text me that week letting me know not to stress, she never trusts the forecast, and to just enjoy the wedding celebrations as she would find a way to get the most stunning pictures regardless of the weather. She truly made me feel 100 times better and at the end of the day, she was right! Sarah went above and beyond the role of a typical photographer. She supported me when she thought I needed it and she was always asking how she could serve us better. Our photos are breathtaking and look like they could be in a bridal magazine!
I'm a world traveler, film photographer, lover of the scent of fresh flowers on a street corner market in Paris, the crisp crust on a warm baguette and the feel of the soft salty air on the Cliffs of Moher.
