Sarah Carpenter Photography

I am a creator, designer, and artist. I have an eye for capturing moments to tell a unique and personalized story while creating pieces of art that will be an heirloom to have forever.

Connections give me the ability to make people feel comfortable and be completely themselves. As we explore together, I get you moving which creates the foundation for organic posing. I'm led by you. Your love inspires and guides me to create fresh, beautiful, natural images that perfectly represent you. I'm here to enhance and artfully tell the story your love has already written.

We've now been together for years and continue to grow together, in our marriage and our business. My love of organization and genuine care for my clients and Michael’s calm, contagious presence make us an unstoppable team.
Our own love and different strengths are our business' biggest asset. We are honored to capture the love other couples share and being able to do it together. 

Second Photographer & Coo


Michael is a romantic at heart but is also extremely realistic. His background in science and math gives him the ability to think creatively in terms of lines, angles, and ratios. Michael might be the fastest film loader, anticipates the needs of others, and takes beautiful, thoughtful photographs. He's tech support, my assistant, second shooter, and can put people at ease with his smile alone. Michael is currently working towards his goal of becoming a doctor in medical school, all the while photographing weddings and portraits alongside me.
