The Process

The Documentary Style

Authentic. Natural. Honest. Candid. These are all words that help describe the documentary style of photography. I take the approach of allowing you and your loved ones to be truly present without having to be directed or forced into awkward posing. With this style, I create images that celebrate the raw emotion, beautiful imperfections, and meaningful relationships that make up the story of your lives while being discreet.

There are many different styles of photography and trends that come and go, but what makes documentary photography unique is that it places the focus on a feeling rather than a look. When you look back on your wedding or family photos ten, twenty, or fifty years from now the important thing is to remember how you felt! I document these moments by using a mix of intuition, observation, light, and, composition. I also believe that building a relationship and learning about my couples or family is important in order to earn trust. Trust is priceless, and I am always humbled when I'm let in to honestly capture someones biggest moments or intimate lives.

If you envision your wedding day being captured completely and authentically in a unobtrusive manner or if you imagine capturing the honest and emotional moments that are part of the everyday miracle of life, than documentary photography is a perfect fit. Although some may also refer to this style as photojournalism or reportage photography, the underlying theme is still the same. This is a style that celebrates life.

Documentary Style

FAQs

We love the documentary style, but do you offer any group portraits during the wedding day as well?

Yes! Although, my couples come to me to cover their wedding because they value the natural and authentic imagery that is reflected in documentary photograph, weddings are a unique event that often involves the gathering of many family members. Because of this I am happy to create family and wedding party portraits for my couples at their request. Typically this takes about 15 mins and happens after the ceremony.



Do you include posed couple shots during the wedding?

Most weddings have a time carved out for the couple and the photographer to be alone (although definitely not required!). This is when I focus on capturing your unique relationship with one another. I still approach this is a documentary style by allowing the natural moments between the two of you to shine. This may mean that we go for a walk or spend time sneaking out nice light and areas of your venue. What you wont have to worry about, is stiff and awkward posing or forced interactions. We chat, we relax, and we capture your beautiful, natural selves. 

FAQs

Do we own the copyrights to our images?

Although I do maintain the copyright for all images created, I do provide you with a print and share copyright for your downloads. This allows for you to create prints and albums from any lab as well as share privately or publicly online and on social media outlets.

Are you willing to do custom packages?

Absolutely! The collections I have created reflect the most requested options, however, every wedding and every family is unique and I am always more than happy to work with you on a custom quote.  

How far will you travel?

My home base is in the D.C., Virginia, and Maryland area, however, I am happy to travel to any both domestically and internationally. For weddings outside a 150 mile round trip of zip code 20105, please contact me for a travel quote.

I always look forward to having our sessions with Sarah. She never disappoints and I always smile through tears as I look over our perfect (and imperfect!) reality she captures in each shot!

Sarah captrues really beautiful candid shots, which matches our taste perfectly. Her style is very creative and expressive of the moment. Aside from her photography skills, Sarah has a sparkling personality!

Chua Family

The photo shoot turned out to be amazing and my family and friends are all impressed by the quality of the photos. A true professional in capturing our special moments and a joy to work with.

I was floored by how many photos I received, but even more so, how many of them were SO AWESOME. Sarah was able to capture the joy, emotion, and excitement of our day. Every time I go through my pictures they bring me back to our wonderful wedding.
