Howdy! My name is Sarah and I've been hiding out behind the lens here since 2010. I love live jazz, new cookbooks, being outside, weddings and everything they stand for. When else is there such a coming together, such a range of emotion? The end of something, a new beginning, and all the people you love in one place to cheer you on. Plus a hopping dance floor and a killer dress! As a creative with many outlets, wedding photography holds my interest with the challenge of artfully capturing real life, on the fly. Anticipation, imagination, patience, confidence, understanding light and shapes, interpreting and communicating a story through the lens, flipping the switch from street photography to fashion, to portraiture, to landscapes, back to photojournalism, all day long. There are hundreds, thousands of moments and each one matters. You live them. I'll capture them.
I live in a little old house with my loves: my husband (more on him later) and two sweet babies. Growing up in the midwest has given me an appreciation for the beauty in truth & simplicity, tenacity, patience (thank you MN winters), and a big heart. I aspire to be many things: writer, foodie, musician, hiker, mother, artist, friend and I'm amazed at the way God uses Fresh Frame to let me be a little of each.
Your love inspires me! As a girl I always had my nose in a book, and now I tell stories for a living. Authentic, deliriously happy wedding stories, with all their hope, elegance and quirky characters. I believe a photograph can make us fall in love all over again with a time, a person or a place. The photo on my dresser of my grandparents in their garden brings me back: a hot summer night, him whistling in the garage, her grin at his trademark teasing. The frame of Matt & me laughing (what else could we do!), trying to dress a wet, screaming infant as fast as possible after bath time. How much I loved him in that moment, knowing I'm not on this crazy journey alone.
This feeling, this realizing how blessed we are is what I aim to capture for every client. You can never prepare for that part of the day, when the gratitude hits as hand in hand you turn to face your closest family and friends. They've come to celebrate & wish you every happiness. Documentary photos take you back and I get to take them for you.
Authentic, timeless, documentary coverage for all the important parts of your story, from preparations through the first hour of dancing (about eight hours). Engagement session? Two photographers? Included. Digital rights to your finished images? Yep!
Planning an intimate event, backyard or courthouse wedding, or elopement? This simple package may be the perfect fit. Less day-of coverage, less 'extras', lesser cost.
