I'm excited to have you here! By now you already have your venue picked out and the whole theme for what you have in mind. Now all you need is that someone who can document it from start to finish so you can relive it again and again.

I know a wedding photographer who believes in capturing people true to themselves without the dramatic or stiff poses. Someone who is a lover of movement, laughter, and genuine interaction between couples, friends, and loved ones. Someone who is quietly snapping away your joys and tears all while being a helping hand to get the memorable shots.

It's me. I'm that person. It's nice to meet you!

Congratulations on your engagement!

Congrats!

I'm so excited that you are interested in choosing me to document your wedding! I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images on film at the age of 20 while attending the Art Institute of Philadelphia. At the time, my major was in Media Animation, but like most college students, I ended up going another direction. It started with a photo displayed on the walls. A beautiful autumn day and couple walking in the park. That piece of art drew me in like it was painting. The rest is history. As an artist, my life revolves around capturing little life's moments just as they are.

"Sabrina was easy to work with. She made as feel comfortable in front of the camera and was patient with our wedding party, getting everyone together for photos. It was fun to look at the photos she captured afterwards especially the candid moments that I didn't remember."

Sabrina photographed our engagement photos in Philadelphia then our wedding in Jamaica, it was great to have that consistency with our images and to have her photograph our wedding day so beautifully(especially during covid). She is very detailed and loves what she does and that shows in the beautiful images she captures!

After photographing so many weddings over the past few years, I have found that I'm not the perfect fit for every couple. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. I take on only five to six weddings a year, so I'm very selective about who I work with. It's important we work well together when creating art.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with us and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

LET's CONNECT

Process

The

We're here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. We've photographed more than 150 weddings in the past few years and we're happy to share everything we've learned along the way! 

Wedding Advice

We’re big fans of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. We normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules. 

Engagement Session

We check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day. 

While we normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have questions during the planning process!

Wedding Day Prep

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. 

Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

The Big Day

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

The relationship doesn't end after delivering your photographs. We want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, we'd love to document your growing family.

Photo Delivery

MORE DETAILS

One of the best ways to make your wedding memories last is by ordering an album. You can either have your album included in the collection or choose to purchase it separately.

These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on coffee tables.

All albums must be prepaid before design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include three rounds of revision. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day. 

ALBUMS

All wedding collections include a complimentary engagement session. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how I work. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why I've found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.

Engagement sessions also allow you to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, you can do your session anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.

Engagement Sessions

Custom packages are available upon request 
**A 6% PA sales tax will be added to all studio print products
***Travel fees may apply to locations outside of 50 miles. Ask for details.
