Sarah Barthlow Photography

Hi there! I’m Sarah and I’m a photographer. I have been shooting weddings and portraits for six years. I shoot mostly in natural light settings but I enjoy the challenge of working with lights and flash to create some moody magic.

Some of my favorite photographers are Henri Cartier-Bresson, Annie Leibovitz, and Richard Avedon.

I like to find creative ways to photograph my subjects. Sometimes I yell and bounce around at a shoot, sometimes I have couples sing and dance and jump around, sometimes I have kids scream at the top of their lungs. It can seem crazy at the time, but the photos that result from the shenanigans are well worth it!

I’m a mom and a gardener. I think red wine and/or chocolate chip cookies fix everything. I’m addicted to cooking shows and I believe everyone is happier on a bike.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

My husband and I got hitched in 2006 and we, for the most part, had a very traditional wedding. We had a very quick and simple civil ceremony and then had a huge reception. Pinterest and Etsy weren't around to help me design and throw a lovely DIY affair and I wish I could have a re-do, perhaps one day 🙂 I am so in awe of the level of creativity of today's brides and grooms. I have shot all different types of weddings from the courthouse, to hand fasting ceremonies to Bahá'í. I walk away from each one having learned something new and having met some of the best and most interesting people, all with one thing in common…LOVE.

Every couple is different and I love getting to know each and every one of my clients and I find great joy in creating a collection of photographs that represents the uniqueness of every one of them.
