Blessings Photography is made from love and a deep desire to bless others. I decided on naming my wedding photography business this name because God has blessed me with a many things many times. Even through the trails that life brings me I continue to see His blessings.
I want to be a light for Him and I try to show that through my work and through my communication with you.
I'm an old soul. Bookworm. Enjoys comfort and security. I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy movie or competition show (huge Survivor and American Race fan)- give me that with a gluten free vegan strawberry cupcake and I AM SET.
My work to me is considered more on the warmer side of things with a bit of brightness. I love all the golden tones and enjoy making any crazy emotional photo into a black and white, because dramatics is a thing and it can come across through an image. I'm also truly drawn to the film look and the grain that comes with that style. I am for my images to be timeless, fun and memorable.
Weddings are fun because I can really showcase the couple and their style. I look forward to hopefully showcasing yours!
"There are few things that inspire and excite me more than photography!"
I want to be more than just the hired photographer. I want to be there making sure your day is going as seamless as possible. Need someone to fix your lipstick? I'm your girl. Coffee? I got you. Someone to give you words of encouragement or a boost of confidence? Look no further. I'm here to make sure your day is remembered for how it should be and to document this important time in your life.
Choosing the right people to be a part of your special day is important. There is a lot that goes into planning your wedding, elopement and/or engagement session. And you shouldn't take hiring these people lightly. We are in this industry because we love weddings. We love love. We love connection. And for me I love capturing that love, that special bond, those intimate moments, the throwing your head back laughing moment, the sweet tears rolling down your cheeks because you are so in love. I want to document all the small moments, to the large ones and all the ones in between.
“Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”
I am all about capturing those raw, genuine, timeless connections. I want to capture the seen and unseen moments. I aim to capture you being you. Capturing your love for each other and your family. If thats piggyback rides and dancing - lets do it! If that's not your cup of tea, but you prefer the more classic type of photos - you bet I can do that too! I'll do whatever it takes to get the shot, because this isn't about me, it's about YOU! I'm here for YOU and I want YOU to be happy and stress free on your wedding day. And happy in the future when looking back at your photos remembering your wedding and/or session for what it was and how you felt on that day.
Rain, hail or shine, I won’t miss a beat
So how am I different than all the other photographers out there? Well I'm glad you asked! I was a bride once, 10 years ago, it goes by crazy fast! I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. I know what it's like to plan a wedding, and I know what it's like to plan any type of photoshoot. IT'S HARD! It's overwhelming and can be stressful. Well I'm here to tell you that I GOT YOU! I will help you in any way possible. Venue shopping, flower arrangements, outfit options, everything and anything in between I can be your right hand lady. I'm here to give you an unbiased outsider opinion. And I promise to be completely honest with you! We will become fast friends and I believe photography is more than just taking the photos, editing them and then delivering them. It's a bond between you and I. A trust that is formed between us and a friendship that will never be forgotten. These images are meant to stand the test of time. Stills for you to cherish and show off to your kids and grandkids one day. Photographs are memories captured to last you forever.
House plants are the way to my heart
I'm a Southern California Photographer sticking to her roots. Due to some health issues traveling isn't in the cards for me and my business (makes me super sad) BUT I've come to terms with it and am more than happy to still document love stories around my stomping grounds.
I live with my husband (we have been together since we were 15 years old) and our three kids and long haired Dachshund, Toby. We are currently trailer living as we are building our house!
I live a Gluten free life thanks to Celiac Disease. And I love coffee ice cream. Romance books are my jam and house plants are the way to my heart. I've got more tattoos than I ever thought I would have and you bet I'll keep getting more (sorry dad) what they say about them being addicting is true.
That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favorite things. No matter who and where we are, we’re all souls wandering this beautiful earth, with a different story to share. No tale is one and the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)
Sarah took our engagement pictures in Temecula and I will say everything went so smoothly!! She had quick responses to all my millions of questions. She helped us look for venues to take our pictures and I can honestly say the pictures were beautiful!! She helped us with the poses and was very patient with us! The app she used is so easy to use and we received our pics in about 3 weeks. Thank you again for everything!
"She did a wonderful job capturing special images of my fiance and I in Joshua Tree. She is professional, flexible, and creative: the makings of a lovely photographer."
"Sarah is my cousin but she also became my wedding photographer and she made the day so much more special by being the one to photograph our special day."
"We can not stop talking about how much fun we had, I fully believe that is because of Sarah. She has this talent of making us feel so comfortable and at ease."
