I’m Sarah, a Twin Cities-based photographer living in Saint Louis Park with my husband, Andy and our dog, Maddie. I grew up in the Brainerd Lakes Area, went to college in Grand Forks (go Sioux!), moved to Denver for a while, and found my way back to Minnesota six years ago. 


have been in love with photography since I was a little girl and creativity is at the core of who I am! I am also a graphic designer and work in branding and publishing. My technical design skills help me elevate my photography and enhance the overall experience and product that I deliver to my clients. 


My photography style is clean, but a bit moody - and at my shoots I may ask you to stand in ditches, walk into the unknowns of tall grass, take your pretty shoes off, or twirl in the rain...and you just have to trust me! The result is unique, beautiful, and genuine images that capture the full essence of you and the shooting environment you're in at that very moment. 


I will travel anywhere to shoot! Traveling is one of my greatest passions and I am always on the lookout for new adventures. I travel within one hour of Minneapolis for free. Outside of the one hour range? Want engagement photos at the Grand Canyon? Message me for details on travel packages!

Questions? Message me and I’d love to chat and find out if we’d be a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you!
