Sara's style is influenced by her BFA in Fine Art Photography, years in publishing in NYC (fashion, storytelling, and photojournalism) and a decade-plus spent as a top People magazine retoucher. In addition to running her boutique photography studio, Sara is currently the Premedia (retouching) Manager of InStyle magazine.
Striving to capture her clients authentically and stylishly, Sara embraces tears and big laughs, silly moments, random happenings, all the stuff that comes unscripted. Capturing emotion in real life, Sara has a gift for embedding herself within families during special events. Brides have said 'I never even saw you there,' and Sara prides herself on being a calm, comforting (yet somehow invisible!) presence for her clients.
Sara has been published in Coastal Living, the New York Times, Closer, OK magazine, Modern Luxury: Beach, ETonline.com, Working Mother, and People.com, and she regularly shoots assignments for Serendipity, a lifestyle magazine covering Fairfield and Westchester Counties. Sara shoots primarily with Canon digital cameras and prime lenses but, still in love with film, she brings 35mm and vintage twin lens cameras to many weddings.
Sara and her team have been honored to be the official event photographers of the Greenwich Wine+Food Festival the last four years. Besides the amazing food and inspiring chefs, Sara has been fortunate to work that All Access Pass behind the scenes while photographing top talent including Old Crow Medicine Show and Ziggy Marley.
A few fun random tidbits about Sara:
She's been kissed (on the cheek!) by Channing Tatum, aka a Sexiest Man Alive.
Sara is proud to have completed the New York and Honolulu marathons.
When not shooting, Sara loves surfing, sailing, snowboarding, listening to NPR (esp Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me!), reading (fave author: Ann Patchett), Malbecs, and adventure travel.
Sara was born in Connecticut, raised on a farm in rural Ohio, and is now a bonafide New Yorker. Town and country indeed!
She has photographed Kevin Bacon twice, so you are now just one degree from him. You're welcome! =)
With her husband Brian, Sara splits her time between a cozy apartment in NYC and the tranquility of a century-old farmhouse in Southampton with two crazy kitties, Sea Salt and Peppercorn!
