Sarah Mark-Bride Groom Portraits-0074.jpg

I specialize in photographing couples through thoughtful and Natural storytelling.

You’re getting married and you want to do something a little different- toss out a few traditions, and make your wedding day actually feel like you. I’ve been a part of weddings that have taken place in a hurricane, tiny glass chapels, elopements in the woods, or camping after the reception. Every wedding is unique, but one thing remains the same: the photos should be about the wedding- the wedding is not about the photos.

 

On wedding days —

Wedding days are made of big moments and small moments, and I find both equally important.

I believe photography should stand the test of time. Your wedding photos should be beautiful and relevant in 100 years, not just exist to serve as a popular post on social media.

It’s my duty to view your wedding through the eyes of friend, bystander, and photojournalist all at the same time.

What couples are saying

Tess + Matt

If we could rate Sarah more than 5, we absolutely would! Sarah was a joy to work with, and I frequently share that she was easily one of the best parts of our wedding. Her quality of work is unparalleled and, thanks to her skill and eye, we are able to relive our wedding day. In addition to the quality of her work, Sarah is exceptionally kind, wonderful, and professional to work with. She makes getting photographed, which can feel awkward and stiff, fun and enjoyable. Her calmness and demeanor rubbed off on us on our wedding day, and she always made us feel comfortable and at ease. I’m grateful that she was such an integral part of our day, and I can’t recommend her highly enough!

It is really hard to talk about Sarah in a positive light and do her justice. She is simply amazing. Her work is incredible, from her focus on the intimacies between people in relationships that most photographers wouldn't notice, to the artist integrity she holds so dear. It is apparent in her style and the work itself. Personally, she is so genuine, kind, funny and just an all around joy. She also focuses so much on capturing the authenticity and nuances of you as a couple that she's totally non invasive and obtrusive to the moment. She made my partner and I feel completely comfortable and at home, which is always the best!! I could never have imagined anyone else capturing my day, honestly, And as a photographer myself, that's saying a lot! I totally trusted Sarah and was completely as ease, knowing she would not only capture the day seamlessly but would see subtleties that no one would see, and turn them into magic. If you are even remotely thinking of booking her to document your story, or your family, don't hesitate! You will be so happy you decided to work with her, and you'll never regret it.

I don’t even know where to begin in explaining how amazing Sarah is! She is such a genuine pleasure to work with! We first booked our engagement photos with her where she made us feel so comfortable and our photos turned out beautifully! Right after she did our engagement photos, we immediately decided that we wanted her to photograph our wedding, even though we had already booked a photography service through a studio to save money. We ate our deposit from the studio and booked Sarah for our special day and it was the best decision we made! Sarah took the time to have coffee with us a couple of months before our wedding to talk over details and our vision for our day. She always emailed to check in on us to see how wedding planning was going, she is genuinely the sweetest person ever! She made our wedding day photos go so smoothly (even with hectic family members) and again made us feel so comfortable! She helped make our day so special and it seriously wouldn’t have been the same without her! Her photos are so beautiful and dreamy, she captures all of the small details that you want! I would highly recommend her to anyone - not only does she have a stellar personality, but her photos are absolutely stunning! We love Sarah so much and are definitely going to use her photography for all of our future milestones in life!

FAQ

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?
I have been working professionally for over 10 years- my first time photographing a wedding was when I was 16! I began exploring photography as a passion when I was 12, though.

DO YOU TRAVEL?
Absolutely! Any wedding over 2hrs away from Richmond, VA will require a hotel stay. I am based in the VA/DC/MD area, but I love adventure and have a passport ready to go.

DO YOU HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER?
Always. I think it is a huge benefit to have two perspectives and coverage in two places. On most wedding days, my husband, Ross, is my second shooter. Having gone through a wedding ourselves, it gives us a unique perspective. We totally understand not wanting the super-posed-and-stiff wedding portraits (because we didn’t want that either) and we’ll never force those to happen. And we’ll never ask you to take a jumping picture.

HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT TO WAIT FOR MY WEDDING IMAGES?
6 weeks! I always get a preview to you within 24hrs after your wedding.
