Hi. I specialize in 35mm film photography & short films.
I am Sara, a photographer who prefers to capture everything on 35mm film. I’m a wife, mother of dogs (3) and INTJ (MBTI). When I’m not traveling the nation in a conversion van, I’m living in the wooded countryside like a hobbit, drinking coffee, tea, reading many books and writing fiction.

Photography & Short Films
You do wedding videography?
Yes. I’m fairly new to video in constrast to photography. I’ve been doing film photography since 2006 and began doing wedding videos in 2016. (Ask about my post wedding highlights. You film it & I’ll make it beautiful.) If you’d like to see samples of this kind of work and more of my videos check out my Vimeo.
And Yes! I travel.
Nationwide for elopement weddings & with little to no cost as I’m a conversion van traveler. I’m used to 18-24 hour roadtrips to the coast and love audiobooks and podcasts. I was born and raised in Oklahoma and that will always be home. I travel frequently to weddings in New England, Colorado, the East Coast and throughout the South.
Elopement Packages + Price List
You can view & download the price list here. The price list is for wedding elopements 3 months prior to the wedding date or sooner. Travel fees are not huge, if necessary, as I am a conversion van traveler, but will only be required if I need to travel a great distant away from my originally planned route for that date or if plane traveling is required.

Digital vs. Film Photography
Please scroll over the portfolio images below to view whether the images are digital or film photographs.Film photography is what we used before digital cameras. Digital cameras give us results quicker but I believe they lack the souls that film can capture.Not everyone can see/feel the difference, but if you prefer film let’s chat about it.Not all film is equal. Each film stock gives a different look entirely. 35mm films have 30+exposures per roll. Some of my favorite film stocks are fuji 400h, Portra 400, Portra 800, Ektar100, Kodak gold 200 and Ilford Delta 3200. I’d love to use a stock that gives you the look you want most.
I make films.

“We couldn’t be happier with our photos! Sara is a true artist. We got photos of our venue thay belong in a museum and photos of us that could be in a magazine, and we are not a photogenic couple. She’s laid back but assertive when need be. We had problems with our venue the day of and she smoothed them out for us so I wasn’t bothered and could have a relaxing day with my girls. At her prices she’s a true bargain! I only wish she could have been our videographer too! ” – Rachel
Sara was so quick to respond to every email, text, and phone call. I had so many questions to ask and she answered them all within a matter of minutes. She shot our engagement photos as well as our wedding. All of our photos turned out amazing! The only part of our experience that wasn’t absolutely perfect was that I would have liked a little more direction as far as how to pose for different shots. At times I felt lost and that our pictures weren’t going to turn out well, needless to say they turned out so well. Sara told me during our engagement shoot that she knew just the right time to capture moments on film and trust me, she was completely right! I would highly recommend Sara to any bride looking for an amazing photographer who is talented, has experience, and is reasonably priced. Our photos are timeless and class, that’s exactly was I was looking for in a photographer for our wedding. – Dana
Sara did a phenomenal job with our wedding video. We initially had no idea about where to look for a videographer, but we knew we really wanted the opportunity to have our wedding day on video forever to look back on. We found Sara through some of our family. They told us how great she was for them, so we booked her for ours. Our wedding was a little under 2 hours away from Oklahoma City, and Sara gladly made the trip and was extremely punctual and we hardly knew she was there. Every moment that we wanted to remember was captured, and she worked very well with us to coordinate the songs, etc. for the video. If we had to do it all over again, we would use Sara again. My wife and I recommend her videography services!! – Chad
Sara did our video and we are super content with her work and customer service!! She went above and beyond to make sure she was on top of things so that she would not miss any special moments on our special day!! We lots of compliments from our family and friends! I plan to use her again in the next couple of months! If you go with Sara you will definitely not be disappointed!! – Adriana
Sara was wonderful to work with and our video was absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend her! – Diana
Sara filmed my brothers Wedding last September and she did an amazing job! She was so patient and great to work with. I have recommended her to all my friends and family. – Alaa
If you are looking for individualized and unique photography, and not just a regular cookie cutter approach. This is it! – Lisa
“Sara was very easy to work with. she really has a passion for what she is doing and it shows through her work. I hate most pictures of myself but some how she made me look amazing. She captures peoples personalities in one photo! I don’t know how she does it!” – Kathryn
