Presque Isle Beach Engagement Session

First off if you know me you know I am a beach lover, my husband and I even had a beach wedding. So when I get a chance to shoot at the beach I jump at the opportunity. Kristen and Chad came in from Baltimore to have their wedding near Kristen’s family in Erie and I had the lovely pleasure of not only shooting their engagement session the night before the wedding, but I got to attend their rehearsal dinner as well. This is the type of connection I love having with my clients. Before the rehearsal dinner, we decided that since it was at this amazing lighthouse on Presque Isle we would grab a few engagement photos. I mean come on what’s more romantic than beach engagement photos!? Okay, maybe I am a bit biased but seriously, the beach!

 Earlier that Day

Earlier that day as I was driving into Erie, the weather was cold, it was raining and it looked like Kristen and Chad’s dreams of an outdoor wedding at the golf course and rehearsal dinner near the beach may not be able to happen. Flash forward to 30 mins before we planned this amazing beach engagement session, the sun comes out the rain moves out and it turns into a BEAUTIFUL evening! Miracles do happen… thank you, God! Kristen and Chad told me they just wanted a few quick snaps on the beach and to just enjoy the rehearsal dinner with the family and friends. I shot a mixture of film and digital for this session, as we strolled along the beach just talking and laughing about how amazing it was the weather cleared for them. Chad and Kristen just laughed together and enjoyed the downtown before the party and chaos of weddings began to happen. At the end of the session they told me they expected me to stay for the dinner, which was a traditional Clambake, um how fun… and just enjoy myself and that I was part of the family for the night! Seriously, the sweetest couple EVER!! I watched their friends and family laugh, eat, drink and just enjoy the night. As I headed back to the hotel that evening I was filled with so much joy, and thought MAN I seriously LOVE my clients they are so amazing! 

This is what made me love weddings! The connection I get to have with people on one of the happiest days of their lives. I get to witness and experience all the love and joy of their family and friends. I couldn’t think of a better way to live my life or a better “job” if you can even call it that.

Sarah is hands down the best! Our engagement pictures turned out breathtaking, and our wedding pictures did not disappoint either! Sarah was super responsive, attentive, and easy to work with! Sarah is so easy to trust. She knows her sh!t and is extremely talented! I never doubted anything she has done, said, or recommended. Dale was also at our wedding and between the two of them, our bridal party had the time of their lives!

She photographed our Colorado wedding and all I can say is AMAZING. She captured our day perfectly and has provided us memories that will last a lifetime. She made our day stress free and helped me to feel calm and collected. She was so easy to work with, she was personable, fun, and really made the day an exciting one. You can tell she is experienced by her efficiency and the direction she gives when taking the pictures. The photos are absolutely GORGEOUS!

"She made the day Stress-Free"

- Angela and Jon

Sarah took the photos for our Key Largo wedding. She was scheduled to do our wedding in Cleveland but when Covid hit we had to make other plans. She worked with us to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams on the beach in the keys. Our photos turned out gorgeous even with the Florida heat of July. She made the day fun and memorable.
