In case you haven't already looked at my "About Me" page

Let me tell you a little about myself

(Keep scrolling to view pricing)

Hi! I'm Sarah, an awkward introverted adventurer. A creator of memories that last a life time. A lover of travel and all things nature. A silly, sassy, southern girl born and raised in Chattanooga, TN. I'm also fluent in sarcasm and "The Office" quotes.

I recently graduated from college with a degree in Outdoor/Tourism Management and a certification in Wilderness First Responding (meaning I can fix your boo-boos). I spent my college years building tree houses for kids and backpacking through the forest. Not your typical college experience, but one that I wouldn't trade for anything. I graduated with more than a piece of paper. I graduated with valuable life skills, an even greater appreciation for God's beautiful creation and memories that will last a lifetime.

When I'm not working, you can often find me out exploring new places and looking for adventure. I've hiked the dense jungles of Hawaii, the rocky beaches of the west coast, the hills of Poland, and many more but my absolute favorite adventures are the ones I've had with the people I love. I'm also a believer that marriage is one of life's biggest adventures, so why not start it off with one? If you decide to hire me as your photographer, I can promise you that together, we will create a wedding day that you'll never forget (and take some killer photos in the process).

NOT ONLY A PHOTOGRAPHER

I am someone who will get excited with you, who will laugh with you and cry with you. Experience all of the raw emotions of the wedding planning process/wedding day with you.

My goal is to not just be your photographer, but your best friend and #1 advocate for you and your love. I want to get to know you guys and help capture the day of your dreams. That means leading up to your big day, if you have any questions or concerns, you can reach out to me and I'll be happy to help in whatever way I can.

I want for my couples to have wedding days that are as stress-free as possible, so if there anything I can do to help make that happen, I'm going to try my hardest to do it.

What it's like to work with me

If I had to list two things that I love in this world (other than Jesus) it would be people, making them laugh and feel good about themselves. Ok so maybe that's technically three things but whatever - just know that if you decide to book me as your photographer, you can expect me to always be trying to make you laugh and feel your absolute best.

Something else that's important to know? I'm not into that fake posed stuff. I want to capture you as you are - because even though I may not have met you yet, I already know you're amazing and shouldn't have to pretend to be anything but yourself. Now this doesn't mean I won't help guide you if you need it (I know how weird it can feel to be in front of a camera), it just means I'm not going to be giving you specific directions the entire time. Your wedding day isn't an all day photo shoot, it's an experience that you should enjoy to the fullest and I'll just be a little fly on the wall documenting that experience so you can look back on it for the rest of your lives. My style of photography is very laid back and documentary like, if that sounds like something you're interested in - keep on reading to learn more about my packages!

FAQ

Do you travel for weddings?

A.Sure do! If you decide you'd like to have your wedding outside of my coverage area (TN, NC and GA) we can discuss pricing for out of town weddings.

Do I need a second shooter?

A.Having a second shooter is strongly encouraged for longer wedding days as it ensures that more moments are captured throughout the day. The number of images you receive goes up by about 40-50+ per hour when you have a second shooter. Plus, you get different perspectives and shots that wouldn't have been possible with only one shooter.

If you are having a shorter wedding day, you may decide having one shooter is plenty.

Can I buy albums, prints, or USB's of my wedding photos?

A.Sure! I do not include these things in my wedding packages in order to keep them more affordable, but I do have a store that you can purchase them from.

What if I need more time or less time?

A.If the coverage hours I currently offer do not fit your needs, we can discuss a custom package for your wedding day.
