I could tell you some other superficial things about myself— I love dark chocolate and red wine, I love DC for it’s grand architecture and rich history, I have a husband I adore, a strong marriage, a darling baby girl, a quaint old brick home, and a love for strong coffee & a good book. 

But if you really want to know me, here are a few things that matter:

I never get tired of weddings.
I tear up at almost every first kiss.
I think pretty & styled is nice, but real life is beautiful. 
I would rather cook for a friend than buy a meal out.
I care more about having a beautiful soul than a perfect body.
I cherish every lingering morning, and end every night with a kiss. 
I believe marriage is one of the greatest earthly gifts anyone can receive.
I believe in telling your story, not my own version of it.

Hello, I'm Sarah Bradshaw! Classic-obsessed, coffee-loving D.C. wedding photographer. I’ photograph because I believe that all of life is beautiful and every person has a story worth telling. I'd love to tell yours.

But here’s the thing— I believe in the power of speaking dreams into reality. Writing down goals and plans increase one’s likelihood to complete them, and they provide a metric for measuring […]

2017, what a whirlwind of a year you were!! I shot 21 weddings, we took 16 trips out of town, Buck made three overseas work trips, we tackled two major yard projects, I launched a new website with updated branding, London turned one, I hired a business coach, I read close to two dozen books, […]

Friends, you might want to pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee and settle in for a bit, because I have some exciting things to share!! Last month I celebrated 11 years as a photographer. I launched my business in 2008 and went full time in 2009, but October 24, 2006 was the day I […]

Do the Work of Learning I started working with a business coach a couple months ago, and I feel like my mind is exploding. As a result, I’m learning a lot about learning. Being “in the know” is popular, not being “in the know” is uncomfortable, sometimes even painful, isn’t it? But I’m learning that […]
