When looking for a photographer for your big day, it can be stressful and overwhelming trying to narrow down your options or to even know where to begin. You know what you want, but don’t know how to find someone who will see it as you do, and that’s because photography is more than just pretty photos, it’s about human connection. You need someone who will capture the details, emotions, and experience of the day.

You need a photographer you can trust! Someone you can connect with! So, I am here to introduce myself a little bit, to help you decide if we would be a great fit.

My name is Sarah. I grew up in Colorado, but have called the island of Oahu, Hawaii my home for the past 6 years. I picked up my first point and shoot camera around the age of 10 but didn’t begin seriously learning the craft until my Senior year of high school. I fell in love with the medium and how it could express human emotion powerfully through a lens. I began teaching myself everything I could and have continued to love it ever since.

Finding joy in the little moments has always been my biggest motivator. From my experience working in a variety of Hospitality jobs, I always loved to challenge myself to help make someone’s moment the most special it could be. My goal as a photographer is to capture your true and special moments.

Why should you choose me as your photographer?

Moments need to be lived in, not rushed through.

I will never rush you or pose you. This is your day, you need to enjoy it! My job is to help you feel your most beautiful and comfortable in front of the camera. All you need to worry about is having the best time ever!

Your memories live inside your photos.

Here comes the “photos speak a thousand words” cliche. But hey, it’s kinda true! Once the hustle of the big day is all over, and everything has settled down, your photo album is the only thing that can bring back all the memories of all the fun, laughter, and special hours with such force. My goal is to help capture your day in a way so that when you look back years later, you can feel like you are reliving it.

You deserve to feel special.

You are a person! Not just a customer. I know the horrible experience of “feeling just like a number”. That’s why I make it my goal to make every interaction with my clients unique and special because you are special!

So! Let’s make some memories that last a lifetime!

’till next time,
