I am not just your photographer.

I am your bonus bridesmaid, your very own boutonniere connoisseur, hair & makeup toucher upper, dress bustler, family wrangler, the friend that reminds you to drink water and eat a snack, the ultimate letsgetthistimelinebackontrack wedding professional and your own personal hype woman.  

The details, the laughs, the tears, the firsts, the way he holds her cheek as he leans in for a kiss, her grandma's hands as she gifts her own heirloom wedding ring, the tear streaming down her dad’s cheek as he sees his baby girl in a wedding gown for the first time. Details that could otherwise be forgotten, but often times mean the most.

These are the moments that I lean in to.

Images have such a strong impact on your memories and my goal is to capture your special day as authentically as possible in the most beautiful way.

Thank you so much for considering me for your wedding!

Welcome

You've thoroughly combed through my website, blog and Instagram feed and you like what you see. The next step is filling out my contact form so we can chat to make sure we're the perfect fit for one another!

Let's Chat!

You're engaged!

Once your date is officially reserved with a signed contract and 30% retainer, I'll send over a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day. I'm happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more!

Date Booked

Make it official

Sessions can take place anywhere from 18 months to just a few days before the wedding. I'm a huge fan of engagement sessions for many reasons. Most importantly, they allow you to get comfortable in front of my camera and understand how I shoot. It's amazing practice for the big day! Plus, you get beautiful images to use for Save the Dates! Win win.

Engagement Session

I check in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I need to know about your big day. A few days before I will send over a details checklist and confirm any last minute changes.

Wedding Day Prep

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. Just know I am SO excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. 

The Big Day

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about eight to ten weeks after your wedding. At that time, I'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

They're Here!

"SARA IS AN ABSOLUTE JOY AND THE MOST INCREDIBLE, THOUGHTFUL PHOTOGRAPHER WE COULD HAVE EVER ASKED FOR. FROM OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT TO OUR WEDDING DAY, SARA WAS THERE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. HER WORK IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING AND RELIVING OUR WEDDING DAY, EVEN JUST THROUGH OUR FIRST "SNEAK PEEK" PHOTOS, HAS BEEN SUCH AN EMOTIONAL AND BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE. WE ARE INCREDIBLY LUCKY TO HAVE HAD HER AS A PART OF OUR BIG DAY AND WE ARE SO EXCITED TO HAVE HER CAPTURING ALL OF OUR LIFE MILESTONES. WE CANNOT THANK HER ENOUGH!"

We are incredibly lucky

"WE HIRED SARA TO DO OUR WEDDING AND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS. GETTING MARRIED IN A PANDEMIC CAUSED US TO CHANGE OUR PLANS AND LOCATIONS SEVERAL TIMES AND SARA WAS SO FLEXIBLE AND UNDERSTANDING. SARA WAS SO HELPFUL AND ENCOURAGING THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE PROCESS AND REALLY HELPED EASE MY MIND. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO POSE FOR PHOTOS AND SARA REALLY MADE IT EASY AND SO COMFORTABLE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER. HER PHOTOS COME OUT STUNNING! EACH TIME WE GOT SNEAK PEAKS OF OUR PHOTOS I WAS BLOWN AWAY BY HOW AMAZING SHE DID CAPTURING EVERYTHING SO NATURALLY AND BEAUTIFULLY! I CAN’T WAIT TO USE HER AGAIN IN THE FUTURE!"

Sara was so helpful and encouraging

asked

Questions

A:

When do you charge travel fees for weddings?

q:

Absolutely. I am fully insured with equipment and liability insurance. I bring backup equipment to every wedding as well as a second shooter to make sure nothing is missed. I shoot on two SD cards simultaneously while at your wedding, and when I arrive home I backup your images in 3 separate locations. Safety of your images is my highest priority. If none of this makes sense, just rest assured, I've got you covered! 

A:

Do you take any safety precautions when it comes to my wedding and images?

q:

You are by no means obligated to do an engagement session, however I offer them complimentary so we have a chance to meet before your wedding so you can get to know me behind the camera and vice versa. It's really great practice before the wedding! If you truly wish to opt out, you're welcome to do so. The engagement session cannot be transferred to extra hours.

A:

What if I don't need the engagement session/already had my photos done?

q:

 I choose my second shooters based on their experience level, shooting style, personality, and availability. All of my second shooters have a similar shooting style to my own, have experience with weddings, and have upbeat and professional personalities. I have an amazing list of photographers I use to second shoot weddings with me and will decide based on availability.

A:

How do you choose your second shooters?

q:

Yes! Most of my weddings are in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. However, I have photographed weddings in Florida, Virginia, Maryland, & Vermont so if you are planning a destination wedding, lets chat!
