I guess that’s pretty obvious.
I’ve been a Victoria, BC photographer since 2009. I photographed my first wedding in October that year and was always drawn to documentary photography involving people. I’m not really sure what else I’d want to do with my life.
Check out this blog post “Why I Blog Every WeddingL or What Really Matters About Weddings” for the guiding philosophy of my business. In short, I strive to capture my subjects (including all wedding guests) for who they really are, to capture the essence of the moments, to see what’s really there. I don’t care how much you spent on your wedding or what you look like. I just want to help you celebrate your love.
I’ve been teaching new photographers since 2015. I love helping people discover a love of photography or just capture better photos of their lives. You can check out my education website here.
I used to work in building engineering, real estate marketing, and even tourism, operating a 1920s manual elevator in Niagara Falls.
I’m so not cool. I was a 90s version of a hipster in high school, but now I just want to be relaxed and authentic.
I’m not a girly girl, but I have a weakness for retro dresses and colourful shoes.
Movies inspire my photography more than photographs do. My favourite film is Dead Man for its stunning black & white cinematography, haunting Neil Young soundtrack, and quirky humour. But I still appreciate some silliness – I’ve watched The Princess Bride & Superbad more times than I can count.
I have a serious obsession with Ireland and I spent a month living in Dublin, but would love to explore the rest of the country one day.
My favourite books are creative non-fiction. I suppose my favourite photographs are also creative non-fiction.
I spend hours pouring over cookbooks and cooking magazines. I’m always willing to try something new, from baking bread to making candy. I’ve been watching too many baking competition shows lately.
I used to be a bit of an indie snob, and I still listen to a lot of obscure music, but a good radio pop song can really brighten up my day.
I love my cats Freddie and Abby and snuggling up inside on a rainy day. Or any day, really. I’ve become a bit of a homebody lately just because my place is so cozy. I also really love photo sessions where clients invite me into their homes.
My name rhymes with Sarah (in case you were wondering).
