New Mexico based + world travel ready.
You can find me trail-running or hiking with my hubby and our doggies in the New Mexico desert. If I’m not adventuring I’m probably dancing around the kitchen in my undies (our dogs think I’m a total freak of a human) or out in my garden! I can’t wait to be your tour guide for a super rad photo experience.
I like to refer to New Mexico as the hidden gem. There are so many beautiful locations here that don't come with the headache of a crowd! This guide includes my very favorite NM gems.
Whitesands National Park is one of the most beautiful places to elope. It is basically me second home, so I guess you could say I know it well. This guide to Whitesands gives you all you need to know when it comes to getting hitched barefoot on the dunes.

We did some research on photographers, but came back to Sarah every time. The quality and quantity of photos we would be able to have and MOST IMPORTANTLY how special she would make the entire experience for us was 100% worth it. We have been trying to come up with the right words to explain just how BLOWN AWAY WE ARE! We wish we could just open our hearts up so she could see the joy she has brought us! She is so insanely talented and kind, and we are BEYOND grateful that she was able to be there for our special day! We love you!

When I first saw the photos my eyes filled with tears! The moments Sarah captured showed our personalities in their truest essence. His playfulness, my shy and more reserved self. I’m so grateful for the authenticity and rawness of these photos. She’s a talented artist with an eye for raw emotion and tender moments.

"Sarah is just amazing!! We had no idea what we were doing when wanting to elope and she helped us come up with a timeline for our day. We told her our vibes and she helped pick the most beautiful location for photos. Her energy and personality is so inviting and welcoming we felt like we were hiking and hanging with our friends all day. She shared some elopement tips and gave advice before hand so we knew how to prepare. The turnaround time was perfect and the quality absolutely breath taking! We would 10000% recommend Sarah 🤗"

We had a great experience with Sarah as our wedding photographer!! Her work speaks for itself; it's beautiful. We just love our pictures, but she was also fun to shoot with and very accommodating. She makes you feel calm and comfortable and it was so fun to become friends with a fellow adventurer. We flew down to New Mexico with some family to have a small elopement at White Sands National Park (and btw if you're in search of an awesome local Las Cruces photographer who knows White Sands, Sarah's your girl!). Leading up to the wedding Sarah helped us to plan out our timeline for the day, and it was very helpful to have input from someone familiar with the area. We would totally recommend Sarah!!!

Don't hesitate, book this photographer! Sarah is absolutely amazing. Her enthusiasm and enjoyment photographing our elopement was such a wonderful feeling. She communicated frequently with us leading up to our elopement and made sure that we had the set up that we wanted, as well as suggesting additional ways to make our photos even more special. She also was willing to meet us in the middle of the mountains and when we wanted to do some impromptu shots was more than happy to accommodate us. She made our day absolutely magical.
