Heather, Dean, and I met my freshman year of high school in Urbana, Maryland in an “Intro to Acting” class. We were our teacher’s first high school class, as she was fresh out of college. And though she tells us now that she would have done some things differently, there was a magic to that class like no other that bonded many of us for life. In that class, we all opened up, learned about improv and scene work, and generally had a ton of fun together. It was the last class period of the day, and that always added an extra freedom, ya know?

“And now after everything: I know this:

There is a reason I am here. And that reason is bigger than me.

So I will carry on with great faith beyond what I can see.

In pursuit of bold courage, on the adventure of the journey.”

Morgan Harper Nichols

Dean and Heather became best friends in high school, and a few years after graduation transformed their relationship into more. Now, they are awaiting the arrival of their first child and their little girl is going to have so, so much love! Every time I think of their journey together it amazes me and makes me smile!

It had been storming ALL day, and we almost called off the photoshoot. I followed the edge of the storm in my car and just as I pulled up and stopped, out came a rainbow! We caught the rest of the evening light, a tremendously beautiful sunset, and the bugs were fairly tame. A win-win situation if you ask me.

It is a beautiful thing to come back home and see life flourishing. Sometimes the things closest to our heart are the ones we’ve known forever without realizing it. Life is funny and wonderful that way, and I was just super pumped to capture this big step in their life!!

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."

"Sarah creates a fun, creative, and safe environment that brings out the very best you to photograph. I had a great time in my headshot session with her and I ended up with beautiful photos (that actually look like me) I would be proud to bring into any audition room. 10/10 would recommend!"
