You are not just hiring a photographer. You are hiring a friend who will be there from start to finish. Think of me as the bridesmaid you never knew you were missing. Not only do I help you figure out all that you need to make your photography dreams come true but I help you adjust along the way and I help you make it happen the day of.
You'll get someone who looks out for your good side, helps you put on your boutonniere (those suckers are tough), makes sure no one is wearing sunglasses, and everything else in between.
I'm here to hype you up and make you feel like the BOSS you are, ready to rule the day. I'm down for any adventure and I will do whatever it takes to get your killer shots.
The first important thing you should know about me is that I am very sentimental. I believe photos area huge sentimental artifact of your life.
So here's the deep stuff...when I was little my parents had their struggles in life and ultimately life hit hard and we were transient for a while before I moved in with my grandparents. During that time my parents put all of our belongings into storage. Eventually, they stopped paying for our storage and we lost all of our belongings.
Every picture (back then they were the way they were intended to be, printed), every favorite stuffed animal, every ugly ass picture I painted in elementary school--all the things I wish I had now as an adult when I think back on my childhood. So, capturing my life through photos is my favorite way that I know how to make memories last forever (especially because I have a terrible memory).
This is why it is so important to me to give YOU the best experience and provide you with the most beautiful memories that you can keep forever and pass down to your loved ones.
My wife often jokes that I favor all the love languages but I believe my top two are acts of service and quality time. This applies to anyone I know including you. It's so important to me that you love what you get from me and that you really enjoy the time we spend together.
It's an honor to be able to capture people's greatest moments in life and I try my hardest to show that in my work and the experience I give.
This means you not only get killer photos but also have a good time while doing it. If you aren't the touchy feely type I wont make you do that for your pictures (one reason I ask about love languages in my contact form). I'm serious when I say I want to be friends--because I want you to enjoy yourselves.
I don't pose you like a 70s prom picture. My number one goal is to make sure you look real and raw and like you're having fun! There is no "right" way to take pictures. I give you prompts and whateber happens next is all you baby. I might tell you to "snuggle in for a kiss" or "pull each other close and whisper sweet nothings." Trust me, I got you on this one. This means you not only get killer photos but also have a good time while doing it. If you aren't the touchy feely type I wont make you do that for your pictures (one reason I ask about love languages in my contact form). I'm serious when I say I want to be friends--because I want you to enjoy yourselves.

"Sabrina did our wedding photos. They are turning out incredible, and she made the whole experience easy and fun. Everything about the day that involved photos was as good as it could've been, perfect. I couldn't imagine someone better to have taken our wedding photographs. If you need photos for any occasion, look no further! I'd recommend Sabrina for any and all events, with no hesitation. Thank you for making the best day of my life even better, and for capturing the memories in the perfect way."
"My husband and I had the best experience with Sabrina from our first exchange, to our wedding day and beyond. Her rustic, edgy and dynamic style is everything we could have dreamed of. Not only was she super professional, her passion for her craft really shines in her commitment to her client(s) true self/selves. She pays attention, speaks and listens to you with intent and then she delivers. If you're looking for a surface detail kind of photographer, she ain't it!"
"Sabrina photographed my wedding last fall and did an absolutely PERFECT job. She captured exactly what I wanted in our wedding photos-- to balance the special moments with the beauty of our surroundings (we got married at a private residence on national forest land) and to truly capture the feelings of the day. The light, the editing, the veil shots, the trees. It was all perfect. I will treasure these beautiful pictures forever. My husband and I are not big on pictures but I knew I wanted to hire a professional photographer for our wedding. I found Sabrina on Thumbtack and she was so easy, friendly, and straight forward to work with leading up to the big day. On the day, we met for the first time and she instantly put us at ease. She made us feel so comfortable, especially in orchestrating the first look. I would 100% recommend her for your wedding, engagement, or family pictures. She has a gift and it is so evident that she loves what she does."
"Sabrina is AH-MAZING! She took engagement photos and those for our wedding in August. She was able to capture our corniness with each other and made us so comfortable in front of the camera. Sabrina was excellent at gathering the troops at our wedding to get the few large group family shots, but also wonderful at capturing our intimate candid moments. We will be using Sabrina in the future for family shoots, maternity pictures, and any others that might come up! Sabrina is professional, priced well, and so down to earth and easy to work and communicate with."

This ends up being TONS of photos—more than you might know what to do with. Giving an exact number us a little tough because of the variations in timelines so just trust me, it’s A LOT.
