British - Italian Wedding Photographer
Based in Europe
I believe that emotions are one of the most important things to capture at weddings and it’s impossible to do so through overly posed and unnatural photographs. One of my clients once described my photography as “documentary through an editorial lens” and she couldn’t have said it better than that.
Hello + Ciao
me in three words?
A little about me
I’m Sarah, a freelance photographer available in the UK, Italy and pretty much everywhere else my work will take me. I currently live in Yorkshire with my partner Matt and my cat Charlie. I grew up in Italy and my family still lives there so I travel between the two countries a lot!
Photography has always been my greatest passion in life. When I was a child, I would borrow my father’s analogue camera and as young as 16, I purchased my first very own DSLR. For some time, I photographed landscapes and documented my travels around the world, capturing portraits of people living as far away as Sub-Saharan Africa and South America. I think that’s when I first developed my documentary style and a love for portraiture.
In my early 20s I studied linguistics and journalism, and although I initially worked in marketing and social media, I knew photography was what I really wanted to do. I covered my first wedding in 2017. I fell in love with the narrative opportunities that weddings provide as well as the human connections, getting to know people and their stories and the privilege that is documenting them.
I feel like wedding photography is more than just a job - it’s a big responsibility and a privilege. It is incredible to think that I’m the person who will capture and immortalise one of the most important events in people’s lives and that thanks to me they will be able to re-live that day for many years to come. I can never take this for granted.
It’s not just the nostalgia and the vintage look, shooting film is going back to the roots of photography and what it really means.
It’s the rawness of simple chemical reactions, no editing software and no chance to waste shots, just the competence of a photographer and light.
I'm 100% an ocean person. I love snorkelling and I'm also a certified Advanced OW scuba diver. If you are looking to add a unique underwater experience to your destination wedding or elopement, I can make sure it's captured beautifully. Heading somewhere tropical? Count me in!
