I accomplish this by documenting authentic moments. Candid, intentional moments to proudly represent your story through film and digital photography. 



Through documentary style photography, I aim to capture your relationship and all of its

my approach

I'm a Seattle based LGBTQ+ Elopement and Intimate
Wedding Photographer inspired by the color green, the way
laughter echoes and every sunset ever. I'm a Cancer Sun,
Taurus Moon and Cancer Rising. I love slow mornings and
saying yes to the most spontaneous plans. I believe art is
meant to be inclusive and intentional. It would be an honor
to capture and celebrate your love, exactly as is. 

I find joy documenting
the world as I see it


Love is the closest feeling to magic. It's important to me that you are captured how you're meant to be, with true-to-tone imagery that captures the feeling of your love; magic.

featured work

“Sara is one of the most genuine humans. Her process aims to document authentic moments, and our elopement gallery is full of candid photos that never felt fake. She cares deeply about your experience, checks in regularly, and was an extension of our family on our day. Everyone felt calmer because of Sara’s expertise and knowledge of how to facilitate an elopement experience. We’ve never laughed harder or cried deeper than when Sara asked us to read our vows together in a private space near where we first met. She captures love, and magic, in its most perfect form”

“Sara will capture some of your most emotional moments. I never realized that a photo of the lace on my wedding dress could bring me back to exactly how I felt when seeing my family's reaction to my entrance, or my partner's face at the end of the aisle. We are so grateful for Sara, whose incredibly cheerful and laid back presence captured our most memorable moments.” – Z + K

“She was so aware. Sara captured us exactly how we see each other. Without us even realizing it, the images Sara captured documented true authenticity. I’ve never seen myself represented in photos in such a way before.”

“Where do I even start?! We have nothing but good things to say about her. It was our first time doing a photoshoot so we definitely felt awkward/nervous at first but Sara made is SO easy to just do our own thing and she was able to capture all these moments beautifully. Sara helped us from the second I messaged her. She constantly asked how we felt before the photoshoot and helped us with looks/ideas/poses. Sara is such a beautiful soul and that radiates through her work and the way she communicates with other people.” - M + K

“Sara is SO MUCH FUN! I can’t believe the photos I’m looking at are of us. She’s hilarious, and confident in her ability to connect with anyone. She did not feel like a stranger. We felt comfortable and confident to be ourselves and we are obsessed with our photos. We are framing every single one!” M + S
