Sarah grew up in both beautiful Savannah, Georgia and coastal Maine, and inherited the photography obsession from her mother. She graduated with high honors from Wesleyan University in 2001 and continued her arts education at Parsons in New York City.
She photographed her first wedding in 2003, and it was love at first shot-- she's been at it ever since. She currently lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with her husband and two sweet cats. Her studio is conveniently located just off the N/R subway stop at Broadway and 28th street in Manhattan.
