PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE WILDLY IN LOVE

ME + NH Wedding photographer

Your wedding marks the start of a new life together and I’m here to make sure you capture those real moments of love and craziness so future generations can transport through space and time to this point in your life when everything was just beginning!

oscar + I are a team on wedding days - he's my awesome second shooter cheering you on (and maybe also tearing up). couples always love him by the end of the night!

i'm irrationally terrified of great white sharks.
oscar is irrationally terrified of frogs (no joke).

i've lived in six states and call cleveland, ohio my hometown.
Oscar was born in mexico city but his hometown is los angeles.

My top three favorite movies of all time make me ugly cry (and I love them for that).

i've been a vegetarian for over half of my life - and no, I've never cheated :)

podcasts are one of my favorite inventions and they're a must have for long car rides (or when I can't fall asleep).

one of my life goals is to have my very own horse. Another is to visit outer space. Those don't have to happen at the same time.

oscar is a collector of lucha libre wrestling masks and can talk to you for hours about them if you so desire.

My music library ranges from tribe called quest to bright eyes and from danzig to jennifer lopez. name a genre and i bet i can bust out a matching cd.

oscar's music library is gigantic but you'll mostly just find metal cds with A dash of classic rock and adele thrown in. he loves adele. loves. her.

your wild is calling

I'm a homebody who ironically cannot get enough of the great big world, an insatiable learner, a laugher, a crier, and a constant work in progress. I'm the wife to the most incredible guy, Oscar (my second shooter), who teaches me a great deal about what it means to love and be loved, I'm the mom to two of the sweetest furry kitties, and I'm a Maine + New Hampshire wedding photographer.

Photographing emotions is my passion - they’re the most amazing thing to be captured in an image and weddings have them all. 

Your wedding marks the start of a new life together and I’m here to make sure you capture those real moments of love and craziness so future generations can transport through space and time to this point in your life when everything was just beginning. 

You have a story to tell and I truly believe it’s an important one to remember forever.

TESTIMONIALS

Love is the one thing that transcends time and space

mel + Matt

I can't stop talking about how wonderful it was to have Sarah as our photographer. She has this amazing, fun-loving and caring personality that's exactly the kind of person you want in the trenches on your wedding day.

Your wedding is one of the most intimate days of your life and we felt so comfortable hanging with Sarah and Oscar. That comfort is important, because it allows you and your partner to act naturally with one another. You can tell from our photos that there is no awkwardness, only love. 

She captures your love in a way that few can, because she takes the time to get to know you. If you have the opportunity to work with Sarah, grab it! 

Sarah's website stood out from the others, I immediately knew I had found the perfect photographer. She did a great job keeping in touch, sending me sweet notes, and going over details for the big day. 

Sarah and her husband Oscar were perfect on our wedding day. We genuinely enjoyed hanging out with them. My husband actually says that his favorite part of our wedding day was doing a photo shoot with Sarah and Oscar down along the water (yes, really)! 

The photos are unbelievable. They caught the spirit of the day perfectly, and we could not be happier with them.

CHelsae + drew

Sarah is crazy talented, professional, thoughtful and so helpful. She truly prioritized getting to know us to make sure that she'd be a good match as our photographer - her professionalism and organizing everything from our timeline, to the different settings we wanted for pictures, and the various groups of people we wanted formal group pictures with, kept the day moving flawlessly.

In the end, Sarah and Oscar gave us (and our families) breathtaking, intimate photos to look back on and remember our day. We are so happy we made the decision to work with her and can't recommend her enough!

I instantly felt like Sarah was the best fit. Not only was she super quick to respond and answer any questions we had, her fun and quirky personality fit so well with ours! 

Aside from Sarah and her husband Oscar being wonderful people, they are also incredibly talented photographers. 

I'm probably partial, but I've never seen photos that captured all of the beautiful, loving, and sometimes messy moments that go along with a wedding like the ones Sarah and Oscar gave us. 

The photos and their friendship are more than we could ever have asked for and we could not recommend Sarah more!

jordan + don

We hired Sarah to be our elopement photographer. I searched online and found her website and instantly fell in love! 

She sincerely wanted to get to know us and hear our love story and was as excited about our marriage as we were! She makes you feel like you are the only couple that she is working with (and we hired her during wedding season!!!) 

On the big day she was incredibly professional yet easy going and fun. Our photo's came out beautifully and I couldn't be happier!

amber + dimitri

Whenever we talk about how amazing our weekend-long celebration was, we always end up looking through our album and thinking of how much we owe to Sarah.

She was the perfect photographer for our wedding day, and captured images that are more beautiful, personal, and special than can be put into words. 

On top of being a truly talented photographer, Sarah is so much fun to work with -  her comfortable spirit puts you at ease and lets you feel yourself on your wedding day and not like you have to pose at every moment. 

Kellie + Jason

Sarah was an amazing, wonderful addition to our day!! She put us completely at ease about the event, timelines, and getting the shots even though we were planning our wedding from across the country. 

She made her way to Maine to capture our celebration, and when she was done, we begged her not to leave because she fit in so well with our friends and family! She was responsive, professional, and just plain fun to talk to before and after the wedding, and we couldn't be more pleased with how our pictures turned out. 

Thank you Sarah V!!!

AMANDA + SEAN

We LOVED working with Sarah. She was just amazing, from planning up through the wedding day and beyond, we're so glad that she was a part of it!

Her blog post with some early photos made us (and our friends and family) laugh and cry; when the full gallery was ready, more laughter, more happy tears - to say they're stunning is an understatement.  

Whether they're superhuman or trained ninjas, I don't know, but some of the pictures make me wonder how they managed to be everywhere at once, or how they (apparently) were right next to me and I didn't even know it, but they captured so many amazing moments!!

Brianna + Joe

Sarah was a rare find - we were SO happy with her as our photographer! Her eye for gorgeous photos, her professionalism, her organizational skills, her communication style, and her warm, loving personality were just a few of the reasons we were smitten with her. 

She made the experience stress-free and fun, and was incredibly flexible to accommodate our unique needs. I'd hire her and again and again for wedding stuff - she's truly amazing!!!

ANNA + JEFFERSON

We could not be happier with Sarah V and our wedding photos! Sarah was such a pleasure to work with, we feel so lucky to have found her to capture our special day! She was very professional throughout the entire wedding. Her easy going personality helped everyone around her feel relaxed and she captured AMAZING shots! Our family and friends are also impressed by Sarah's work and awesome personality. 

My husband and I couldn't be happier, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND Sarah V to any couple in the NH/Maine area especially those of you seeking a photographer who can capture the outdoors beautifully. We will cherish these memories for years to come!!
