Hi, I’m Sarah, a family portrait and wedding photographer based in Hertfordshire. Thanks for stopping by to have a look around my website. My love of photography began at a young age, snapping away on my Polaroid camera and waiting in anticipation for the picture to develop. I feel privileged that now I’m spending my working days doing the same thing I enjoyed so much as a child. I began my training at Venture, a family portrait studio in Watford, Hertfordshire. I loved meeting new families every day and creating fun environments to capture those special moments. After working in a studio for a few years I began experimenting with natural light and discovered my love of wedding photography.
I would describe my approach to photography as relaxed, stylish and fun.
Whether it’s a family photo shoot or your big day I think it’s so important that you feel comfortable in front of the camera and, like a lot of people I’ve photographed, I can’t stand having my picture taken! That’s why I like to shoot in a more candid fashion and avoid those awkward poses. Although a little guidance is sometimes necessary, I’ll ensure you feel completely relaxed so I can capture those perfect, natural moments.
The photojournalistic approach is great but it’s also important you look your best. Beautiful lighting and a little direction can transform a nice photo into an image you’ll be proud of.
The most important thing is that you enjoy yourselves, have fun and the pictures will reflect that.
Being based in Hertfordshire, most of my work takes place locally in Watford, Berkhamsted, Ashridge, Hemel Hempstead, St Albans and the surrounding areas. However I am always more than happy to work outside of my home county of Hertfordshire. Wedding Photography is very much a mobile lifestyle after all!
