Hello, You!

Since this is my first official blog post, I figured it would be fitting to start with a #FridayIntroduction. Friday Introductions are one of those neat things I consistently see on social media and think, "Oh my gosh, these are cool. I need to do start doing these!"


Casper - The Friendliest Pom

Then I get wrapped up in scheduling engagement sessions, shooting weddings, editing...more editing, and binging The Office while enjoying Pomeranian snuggles.


Before I know it another Friday passes and I wake up Saturday morning thinking, "Dangit...I guess I'll just start next Friday!"

Well, not this week, folks! It's Friday, it's my Birthday month, and I'm here to say,

"Hello, I'm Sarah and I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22." #SwiftieForLife




Erm...let me try that again.


Hello, sweet friends! I'm Sarah and I'm an Indianapolis based Wedding and Portrait Photographer! In other words, I love capturing love.


Phew, now that the nerve-wracking and slightly awkward opening statements are out of the way, I want to give you all a glimpse of the totally awesome Aries behind the lens!

Here are 10 nifty things you might not know about me!


  1. I graduated from the University of Southern Indiana #GoEagles with a Journalism, Public Relations, and Advertising Degree. That means when I'm capturing your photos, I'm not just thinking of what pose I can throw you into next. The journalist in me truly wants your images to tell your love story!

  2. My handsome hubby and I will be celebrating our 2nd wedding Anniversary on June 8th of this year. It's funny, some days I feel like I've known him my whole life. Others, I'm like, "Who even are you?!"

  3. I'm OBSESSED with Taylor Swift. Like...I'm pretty sure we'd be best friends in real life because she is legitimately my spirit animal.

  4. I'm a cruise ship karaoke champion...I have the gold ship on a stick to prove it! #TheRose is my go-to jam, but I'm up for anything once the lights do down and the cocktails settle in!

  5. Which leads me to my next fun fact - when I'm not shooting weddings, I'm usually on stage performing with my phenomenal fella. You can check him out at www.circlecitysteel.com I might be biased, but I think he's pretty great.

  6. I'm kind of a make-up junkie in the sense that I've collected like a bajillion palettes (Disney & Wonder Woman exclusives included!) but if I'm being honest, my go-to face takes me between 5-10 minutes and consist primarily of Teint Idole Foundation, whatever random highlighter/blush I can grab first, Urban Decay's Naked Cherry Palette, and Tori Belle Magnetic Lashes for some pizzazz!

  7. This is my favorite number. I'm not sure why. I don't know if anybody really knows how they end up with a "favorite" number. I just know if a bet were to be made or a screen name to be chosen - 7 is the totes obvi choice!

  8. l cannot whistle. I have tried consistently throughout my life and the best sound I can come up with is a high-pitched, whisper-y, water stream-y sounding type thing. C'est la vie!

  9. l am a Disney Princess at heart! Your girl loves her some fairytale endings and happily ever afters! Especially when they are filled with catchy songs and glitter!

  10. I saved the best for last! I'm sure if we've ever had a conversation that lasted longer than 5 minutes you probably already know this about me, nevertheless...I have a Pom Squad! I'm a Pommy Mommy to the fullest and I absolutely adore everything about my little fluff balls.

Thank you spending some time getting to know me this afternoon! I promise this blog will eventually be filled with more interesting things than just lil ole me! That being said, I'd love to learn something about you! Leave a comment below with something most people might not know about you and a topic you'd like to see posted in the future! Happy Friday!
