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.

Published in The Knot: DC, Maryland, & Virginia Magazine Thrilled beyond words to have Kosta & Marina‘s Greek wedding day & celebration published in the print edition of The Knot: DC, Maryland, & Virginia Magazine! The details of their wedding were some of my all-time favorites, from Marina’s choice in dress & shoes (you can never go wrong with […]

Published! Whimsical Daydream Wedding Inspiration Inspired by a daydream, and the start of a beautiful relationship with two now-favorite wedding “friendors” (here’s looking at you, Tiffany & Lori!!), this shoot has a special place in my heart. It was done nearly two years ago at a private home near Leesburg, but just recently found itself on Ruffled’s […]

I didn’t intend to blog this today. I had planned a great post on pre-planning wedding poses, but that will have to wait. Today I need to share from the heart. Mom always said, “The beauty of a plan is flexibility,” and today I’m putting that into practice. Do you know when you’re driving some place […]

So happy to announce that Kris & Christine’s gorgeous mountain-inspired wedding was featured in The Knot: New England’s Fall/Winter edition! The box arrived on my doorstep last week, and waited until Buck got home to open it (joy is always best when shared). I have to admit, I actually cried when I opened the magazine and flipped […]
