First off, congratulations on your engagement! This is such an exciting time in your relationship when you're taking the next step. So, I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious! ;)
Engagements are my absolute favorite type of session to shoot because we are not tied to a timeline, and no one else is watching you (other than the cars driving by and honking at you)! We can take our time to get to know each other, allowing you to drop your guard and open up the natural beauty of your relationship.
My sessions are fun and laid-back with a side of romance mixed in. I want you to look at these photos when you're 80 and think, "This is where our life together truly began," and, "Dang, we were smokin' HOT!!"
The majority of my weekends in the summer & fall are reserved for weddings. But I am available on weekdays for sessions if that works with your schedule. The good thing is that engagement sessions can be done any time of the year!
We typically start the session 2 hours before sunset so we can catch that beautiful golden glow. If you have a preferred season, just let me know and I will send you a list of dates that I have available during that time.
Don't be afraid to get all glammed up for this session! It's the perfect time for brides to do a trial run of their hair & make-up. But if that isn't your jam, you can totally get casual too. I will send a style guide to help you choose outfits that look great together.
And don't forget to bring the most important accessory to your shoot... YOUR DOG!!! If you have a dog, I always encourage you to bring them along because this is a special time in their life too!
We will spend 2 hours together laughing & snuggling - well you & your fiancé of course! I'll be busy snapping the photos and playing your number one hype girl!
We can discuss a variety of locations that best represent you as a couple. I'm a born & raised Montana girl so I know lots of great spots. Whether that be a classic downtown session or an adventure in the mountains!
I provide sneak peek photos from your engagement session to hold you over until the full gallery is ready. You can share these images on social media and use as your profile picture too!
Once your full gallery is ready, I will send you a link so you can download all the high-resolution images and treasure them forever. The online gallery is available for 6 months so you'll have plenty of time to view, download, and order prints!
I'm a huge advocate for printing your images and having something tangible from your session. That's why I offer a variety of products such as albums, canvases, and prints. These photos are perfect to use for save-the-dates, invites, a guestbook, or even a slideshow at your reception!.
The print lab that I use is IMPECCABLE! I can't guarantee the color or quality through any other vendor. I want to make this process as easy as possible so you can get the products you love!

EVAN + HANNAH
"Sara is AMAZING! We loved working with her, and she made the session comfortable and so much fun. Neither my fiancé or I are locals to the Red Lodge area, and Sara knew all the perfect spots to take us for our engagement session. We're already looking forward to the next time we'll have her take our pictures!"
TYLER + BRITTANY
"We can’t stop gleaming at the quality of service that Sara provided. She has a contagious smile and enthusiasm while choosing breathtaking views for pictures. We couldn’t have picked a more perfect photographer! She is very easy going and provides a sense that you’ve known her your whole life. Well worth the investment to work with Sara!"
RYLEE + GAGE
"Sara took our engagement photos and we were so nervous, as neither of us have had professional pictures taken since high school. But she kept us laughing the entire time! She was very patient and helped us become comfortable in front of the camera."
