my favorites

Whether it's swimming, walking, skiing, or hiking, I thrive in the fresh air.

When I'm not working, I'm snuggling with my kiddos. 3 kids 4 and under keeps me of my toes. 

Married my Italian husband Danny in 2013 by a river with our closest family and friends.

the scenes


inquire to begin

I'm a mom of three and a wife to my Italian husband, living in Winchester, VA. My photography journey began at a young age when I found myself reminiscing through photo albums. My mother captured everyday and extraordinary moments of our family on 35mm film then placed printed images into albums. Even at a young age, I knew I had found my calling, photography that makes you feel. 

What was a long, twisted journey of getting to where I am today, I've had the honor of photographing over 200 weddings.

"Sarah is incredibly talented and has a great eye for capturing soft, romantic shots."



Sarah is amazing!! She was so great to work with and truly made our wedding day amazing! Sarah made both my husband and I feel so comfortable while taking photos. Our pictures are so beautiful! I would highly recommend using Sarah for your wedding.

"Sarah made both my husband and I feel so comfortable while taking photos"


Sarah has a very friendly and positive energy. I didn't realize the importance of that until the wedding day when her calm energy kept me grounded in moments of nervousness. We really appreciate all the moments Sarah captured and will value them the rest of our lives.
