WELL HELLO THERE!
I'm Sara. I'm here to help you to create a set of photos you adore and will treasure forever. Whether you're planning your wedding day or you'd like there to be more family photos you're proud to put on display, I want you to absolutely LOVE your photos and it's important to me that whenever you look at them you are transported back to the exact moment they were taken and feel happiness. I think that this works best if we really get on as friends, even though we've only just met.
I'm Mum to 2 small boys so I know how to fully embrace chaos! I know that real life isn't about posing awkwardly for the camera with a fake smile, it's about being relaxed, having adventures and capturing the real moments that happen when something is fun! Because I'm a Mum I also know that most of us take on the role of unofficial photographer for our families, but then who's taking the pictures of you?
Looking back through old photos is one of my favourite things to do, whether that's our family albums from the eighties or our wedding photos from 2012. Our photographs are so precious to me, and they're why I do what I do. Everyone deserves to have a collection of photos they absolutely love, that capture their real life stories, their who, their why and, one day, their way back whens.
I firmly believe that curating an ongoing collection of images of the life we lead is one of the biggest gifts we can give ourselves and our loved ones. To me photos are like treasure troves that keep our memories alive, in years to come reconnecting us to the lives we are leading today. The big moments, but also the everyday moments in life, our own little piece of history. Here are a few of mine...
Our wedding day back in 2012 aka my best ever day!
From the get go we knew we wanted the day to feel completely relaxed and fun more than sticking to all the formal traditions – all we really knew was that we wanted to get all our favourites together for a gigantic knees up and our priorities centred largely around eating delicious food, drinking 80s inspired cocktails and keeping the dancefloor packed all night. We kept the traditional parts of the day that felt meaningful to us, but the rest was done our way.
If you're getting married and this sounds like your kind of mindset, we need to talk because I would love to shoot your wedding!
