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.

I’m a planner by nature (I’ve written 5-year plans for myself since I […]

  hello… … it’s me…   This summer marks my 10th anniversary of blogging. When I first began putting thoughts on the interwebs, I viewed myself as a deep-thinking old soul, painting with words instead of a brush, giving my innermost thoughts and feelings a concrete place to live. I was a writer, “the girl who had a […]

… or two, really. It’s a rainy September day here in DC. The kind where it’s cool, like Spring, and leaves are just on the verge of changing into Fall colors, but it’s not there yet. It’s kind of a blue day. And blue days always remind me of the shoot that Alex styled for The Intentional […]

Today is a couch-potato, tea-drinking, rest-up sick day. I caught something last week, rallied for Saturday’s wedding, and then completely lost my voice yesterday. I’m taking the day off work, but just had to share the newest bit of news in the Bradshaw household. Introducing Guster, our new Goldendoodle puppy!! We picked him up Thursday afternoon, and […]

Time is a funny thing, isn’t it? When I look forward, it seems as if it creeps by like a snail (especially if there’s something to look forward to) but when I look back, I’m shocked at how fast it flies away. Can you believe that it’s already February? I feel as if just yesterday was Thanksgiving, and […]
