Hiiiii there! Allow me to introduce myself! I’m Sarah an adventurous, vibrant, spunky, sassy chick from the heartland in America!! After a 12 year stint in New York, I’m uprooting and starting a new adventure in the UK now and couldn’t possibly be more excited for all the new opportunities to explore and create!
I’m also all about relationships!! I would LOVE to get to know you and your love story, to show the real, raw, goofy, intimate moments that make you so unique as a couple. Not the same stuffy, posed, traditional mumbo-jumbo!
Eloping in the UK is such an incredible way to get married! Adventure elopements are my forte! Put simply, an adventure elopement is choosing to forego a traditional wedding in favor of an adventurous experience in a stunning place out in the natural world. This strips the frills and stress from a traditional wedding and infuses the elements of love, intimacy, and raw-emotion that make your story so tremendously unique. As a landscape photographer turned wedding photographer, these elopements give me an opportunity to capture your relationship with each other as well as the natural space you've chosen to intentionally encapsulate your moments.
I want your elopement to be about so much more than just the photos! Elopements are an opportunity for you to focus on the elements of your day that *truly matter to you* really intentionally. From the initial planning to the delivery of images, I am here to help you craft an unforgettable experience and capture it in a way that will help you hold on to those feelings for a lifetime. And I am here for you, on your team, every step of the way.
It is my goal to make sure you have the most amazing day that you will never forget. I truly believe the images you get from your wedding day are what freeze your day in time. Your photographs will help you remember your wedding day for generations, as well as be the eyes for your loved ones that couldn't be present to share it with you. I do not take that responsibility lightly. I want you to have real, vibrant, emotive images to share and cherish for a lifetime.
Let’s wander, adventure, celebrate, live a little wild and create something incredible!

We found our photographer for LIFE
We first met Sarah at a friends wedding and she instantly became the easiest choice for our own wedding! We loved the photos taken for both their engagement shoot and their wedding so much that we reached out as soon as we got engaged.
It was at our engagement photoshoot that I knew she was the perfect choice for our wedding. I had this vision of a wintery & snowy photoshoot and Sarah did everything she could to make this a reality! During the middle of a blizzard, we found the perfect location and she even hiked through fluffy snow (in a foot cast!) with us for the most amazing candid shots of my fiancé and I. Every single shot she captured was dreamy and completely embodied our relationship. Sarah was so friendly, so funny, and just overall an amazing human being to be around we both felt so comfortable the whole time!
Fast forward to March... Covid-19 came and changed everything for my husband and I! Sarah was planning her own wedding during this time but still put that aside, called me, and helped me calm down during the cancelation of our original wedding. When that phone call was done, I felt relieved and ready to move forward with a new plan. She stuck by our side during ALL the date changes, venue changes, and just overall freak outs.
During the day of the wedding, her and her second photographer, Donna, were fantastic about getting the detail shots that I really wanted. The boys said that it felt like Donna was just "one of the boys" and that they forgot she was there to take photos. To me, that's huge! Most times you put a camera in front of my husbands friends, they freeze up or try to pose awkwardly!
Sarah went above and beyond twice during that day by first noticing and pointing out a small tear in my wedding dress (which then made for fantastic photos of my mother saving the day) and helping me remain calm once my wedding planner had a family emergency and had to leave.
Sarah is truly a talented photographer and just an overall amazing person! I cannot wait for her to travel back to the states so she can capture other important moments of our livesSent on 08/08/2020

Epic Adventure Engagement Shoot
Sarah went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect engagement shoot. In fact, she hiked 10 miles with us just to capture the dramatic backdrop we were looking for. Sarah was extremely nice and so fun to be around, I would recommend her to anyone looking to have an epic adventure shoot or wedding photos! Thank you for the unforgettable day and breathtaking photos, Sarah!Sent on 30/07/2020
