Sarah Yates

If you’re ready to have your moments last lifetimes—you’re in the right place. My photography is full of life, big laughs, warm and contrasted tones, and most importantly? Real moments.

I believe that love is full of little and big moments—ones we want to hold onto as the years slip past. Photography is my way to help you return, to make time stand still. To bring back what you felt, thought, saw.

If you’re ready for a fun adventure that is true to who you are while crying at the altar and breaking it down on the dance floor, I’m your girl!

I'm Sarah
