"Photography remembers the little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

Hi, I'm Sara!
A photographer based in the Bay Area who specialized in documenting your love. My goal is to give you timeless and meaningful photographs that allow you to relive your special day every time you look at them. Every gallery I deliver is truly unique to each couple I work with, and I want your photos to showcase your day in a way that gives you the feeling of falling in love all over again. Your wedding day is all about you and your favorite person coming together, celebrating your unconditional love and commitment to each other, and you deserve to celebrate your way. Forget all of the expectations of the people around you - do what feels right for you! If that means eloping in the grand cathedral redwoods of California wearing a black dress and ending the day by getting matching tattoos, DO IT. If celebrating your way means having a traditional wedding, wearing a white dress and inviting 100 of your friends and family, DO IT. Either way, I'd come to come along and photograph every moment along the way.

“Sara is AMAZING. If you’re thinking about hiring her DO IT. Don’t think, just DO IT! We did a Yosemite session and she made the process super easy from posing us and making my husband & I look great and not feel awkward! All of the photos were gorgeous as well as amazing creative shots that really fit into the scenery! I would recommend her to anyone even not from Cali, 100% she is worth it! She is a master of her craft and can’t wait to hire her for some more adventure shoots in the future! 💕”
So, what's the difference between an Elopement and an Intimate Wedding?
If you look up the word "elope" right now, you'll see this definition: "to run away secretly in order to get married, especially without parental consent." I think we all know that this definition has changed a ton over time, but what does it mean now? Today, eloping means getting married 100% on your terms, and with very few guests (if any). An elopement is a wedding ceremony that usually takes place in an epic location, with only you, your love, your officiant, your photographer (I can double as a witness if needed!), and a few of your absolutely closest friends and family if you choose to have them there. It does not involve any sort of reception; right after the "I do"s, the couple gets to celebrate their love however they want.
AKA a micro-wedding, intimate weddings aren't exactly synonymous with the term 'elopement.' An intimate wedding is more closely tied to a traditionally wedding but the big difference is the amount of guests. Instead of throwing a huge party and inviting all of your mom's best friends from college and your aunt's boyfriend, you can chose to invite a much more intimate group of people. Besides the obvious factor of saving a huge sum of money by choosing to invite less people, you also can save yourself a headache by only inviting the few people who mean the most to you. Generally, a micro wedding is a wedding with 50 or less guests.
