hi, i'm sarah...
I'm the owner and photographer at Gracious Company.
Wife to college sweetheart James, mama to Daniel (almost 3!) and baby girl on the way.
I love capturing real, honest moments between couples. I believe that love is the best thing in the world and when you take a photo of people in love, that's about the most beautiful form of art there is.
During engagement sessions & on wedding days, I see myself as a facilitator. Of course I will create poses and prompt you, but my main goal is to create an experience where your love for each other shines through. For me, this is all about documenting your memories in this time in your life. I believe this is SO important. Sure, you'll get a new profile photo or new Instagram material and I will be so flattered when you show off your images. But what I really want, is for you to look back on these photos in one year, five years, or ten years and remember the good times and all the laughs. I want you to be able to think back on this time and see how your love for each other has grown even deeper. In a few decades, your grandchildren will love looking back on these photos because it will give them a deeper sense of who you are and the legacy of your family.
Family is the most important thing to me. I'm the oldest of four siblings whom I love deeply. My parents raised us on a farm in rural Georgia and I have so many amazing childhood memories. From the start, my parents instilled in me a love for family and a belief that it doesn't matter what we do or where we are as long as we are together. Now, I have a family of my own and after living in Cincinnati for 7 years, we just moved back to the Atlanta area. We are so thrilled to be back home!
