My life is a blessed life and I am so thankful for it. My husband Forest and I have been married since 2014 and we live on the cutest little piece of property surrounded by cornfields and open pastures. My daughter Willow entered the picture in 2018 and is a bundle of energy and spunk.
When I'm not working you can find me playing in the sand box with my little one, camping in our cute 1970's tag a long camper or working in my a garden. (To be honest I had a small garden until Covid hit and then when we were in lock down it tripled in size.)
I'm a proud graduate of Youngstown State. I love learning and continue my education by taking classes, attending seminars and entering local and national competitions.
I love being able to serve my clients and grow with them. Photography has always been a passion of mine and being able to share my passion with others is the GREATEST feeling in the world.
How We became a Husband & Wife Wedding Team
Sarah Marie Studio started with photographing Seniors, Children and Family Sessions. We host a variety of Mini Sessions through out the year - most notable are Sunflower Mini Sessions towards the end of Summer and Christmas Mini Sessions early winter.
Not too long after Sarah ventured into wedding photography she fell in love with capturing couples special memories. Sarah started taking on more and more weddings and was hiring out second shooters. One day in 2015 Sarah was having some difficulties with lighting equipment and Forest offered some assistance. He realized he had a knack for the technical side of shooting weddings and jumped on board.
Being a husband and wife wedding photography team benefits our couples in everyway! Sarah has a love for finding the perfect lighting and will mostly likely cry when the bride walks down the aisle. Forest keeps a tight eye on the schedule and takes AMAZING details and ring shots. Together we make a great team and can't wait to spend your wedding day with you.
