Sarah Yates

I am always so thankful for the connections that I form with my couples. I’m especially thankful when we first meet and instantly we “click”. When I first met Cassia, I was shooting a wedding up in Big Bear that she was a bridesmaid in. 

Flash forward a few months, I had the honor of doing a mini session for Cassia and Nathan. The love between these two is just flowing… which makes my job so incredibly easy to capture their romance. After their mini session, they reached out as a couple and booked me for some wedding romantics up in Big Bear. Fate actually had it where I was already going to be in Big Bear during the time they booked me. Talk about perfect.

But perfect doesn’t even cover how incredible Cassia and Nathan’s golden hour romantics were. It was the middle of the summer, but somehow, not another soul was in sight as we took photos by the lake. I didn’t even have to edit anyone out – it was truly *that* serendipitous. Cassia and Nathan got to live the dream that bride seems to have – wearing your wedding dress just one last time with the love of your life. 

If you’re a previous bride dreaming of putting your wedding dress on just one last time… head over to my Book Now tab to inquire – I’d love to help add some pages to your love story. As always, more wedding inspiration can be found over on my Instagram @sarahyatesphoto

What NOT To Wear to Your Engagement Session

As a wedding and elopement photographer, I love getting to connect with couples and learn their true style + hearts. When I book a couple for their engagements, I typically will send them a style guide with some inspo for some looks and tones if they are looking for some suggestions. But above all, I always include my #1 thing NOT to wear to an engagement session.
