About Sarah

sarahportraits__55-X2

I try to do something scary every day. (Like starting businesses – but at this point, this one is all I can handle!) Weddings are my favorite. I wake up each day so thankful that I get to go to work and meet incredible brides and grooms and their families, photograph the sweetest most genuine love stories, and rock out wedding days with a spare shirt in my car (it gets hot down here y’all) and always, always, always a renewed excitement for every single wedding!

When I was planning my wedding and then viewed the photographs from it, I learned that what I wanted for myself was what I wanted to give to others: photographs that were natural and vibrant, photographs that showed true emotion and authentic personalities, and photographs that told stories with every frame. I learned that my style was emotional, bright, and honest. I specialize in historic home and plantation weddings, which means I’m in the French Quarter one weekend and in the middle of nowhere the next! I wouldn’t have it any other way.

When I’m not shooting weddings I’m visiting the library, perfecting my chocolate chip cookie recipe, peeking into the houses on St. Charles, writing lists about lists, flying to my family in Texas, cuddling with my rescue dog Dixie, eating the yummy food of New Orleans, and watching The West Wing with my husband, Luke. We’ve been married for over two years and it’s the absolute best decision I’ve ever made and the thing I’m most proud of. Directly in second place is my decision to jump off a cliff and start this dream business of mine. So many thanks to each and every one of you for allowing me into your lives and homes – I hope I give to you as much as you give to me!

Why Historic Home + Plantation Weddings

I’ve always loved history and I have an adoration for old things. My bedroom furniture has been in my husband’s family for generations, my early-edition Nancy Drew books are some of my most prized possessions, and the piano I play in my living room is the same piano my dad played in the 1970s. When I started shooting at the old historic homes and plantations of New Orleans, I found myself falling in love with weddings all over again. There’s just something about being inside of a home that has such a life of its own. I’ve had the honor of visiting and photographing so many beautiful historic homes – from ones right down the street in New Orleans, to Natchez, to Charleston, and Savannah. I love the idea of two people marking their history in a place that already has so much history. Whether they know it or not, they are already apart of something so much bigger than themselves.

    Natalie Wetta - Hi Sarah!

    This is random, but my name is Natalie Wetta. I’m an actress/model that recently moved down to New Orleans from New York. I came across your website and name from a few mutual friends. Your photography is beautiful! I’m not sure if you ever use models, but I would love to be kept in mind if you do!

    Here’s a link to my website: http://www.nataliewetta.com.

    Thanks so much for your time! I hope to hear from you.

    Best,
