the little things + the big feelings
From chic downtown elopements to boho desert nuptials, my couples tend to be creative and laid back. They have an appreciation for family, art, fashion, travel and design and genuinely care about having their wedding photographed in a sincere and authentic way. Although their details may be thoughtfully planned out, they know the true importance of the day remains is in celebrating each other and their loved ones.
an investment in your memories
I’m committed to embracing authenticity, simplicity and
spontaneity in my work.
I firmly believe that trust is one of the biggest elements between a couple and their photographer. The more you trust me, the stronger the collaboration will be and the better the end result. I enjoy being as hands-off as possible, photographing each moment from an authentic, candid perspective while capturing all of the little details that make your wedding unique + personal to you.
Wedding collections begin at $3,000 and elopements begin at $1,500. If you are having a destination wedding or an a – typical celebration please don’t hesitate to reach out for a custom quote.
If you know you’d like to work with me all you have to do is fill out your contract and send along a 50% retainer to book your date! Everything can be done online to make your life, and mine, that much easier!
Around two months before the big you’ll recieve an email with a link to your wedding day questionnaire! This little baby will help us refine the photography schedule for the big day.
Crossing our t’s and dotting our I’s! All of the pre-prep will make the wedding day go that much smoother, I promise! Once you’ve received your photography timeline back there should be ample time to make any necessary adjustments and get your wedding party and crazy, yet amazing, relatives, on board.
The time has finally come! Hopefully you aren’t too nervous, but just incase you are, try not to worry! I’ve photographed tons of weddings in a variety of settings, locations and lighting scenarios and will be there every step of way – from putting on boutieneers at the beginning of the day, to raging right along side you on the dance floor at the end of the night.
All weddings are hand edited and crafted by myself. This process can take some time! Please allow 8-10 weeks for your images to be ready, especially during the height of the busy season! In the meantime, be on the lookout for a sneak peek and images on social media! Follow along @sarahldickenson to make sure you don’t miss out!
Well, first and foremost, I hope that you love my work!
+ Secondly there is a certain amount of knowledge, skill, and professionalism that can only come from experience. I have been shooting weddings for over 4 years and in almost every situation imaginable. All types of venues, locations, lighting scenarios, weather, and cultures. From torrential downpours to dirty wedding dresses, you can rest assured that I will be your trusted advisor, friend, and confidant from our very first email, to the big day and beyond. I enjoy taking care of the little + not so little things so that you don’t have to.
+ If you’d like to grab a coffee or a drink to make sure we are the right fit, I would love to meet you! I want to make sure you’re 100% confident that I’m the right photographer for you + that you’ll feel comfortable having me around on such a monumental day in your life.
I love working with couple’s who believe that photography is more than just an item on their wedding day checklist. If you are fueled by adventure, laughter, having fun, following your own path down a windy dirt road and aren’t afraid to get a little messy every now and then, reach out and say hi!
I don’t know a lot of people who feel overly comfortable having their photos taken – myself included. My approach is to be present and friendly, but not overbearing. I like to help you pose, but in a way that compliments the natural way you interact as a couple. Often times you’ll be posing how I want without even realizing it! This makes for a very easy and fun experience in front of the camera.
I shoot everything from interiors to lifestyle to fashion, food + beyond – as a full-time photographer I have my feet in many worlds, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Most importantly, I consider myself a storyteller – I tend to think each subject matter informs my work in different ways and makes it stronger as a whole.
I thought you’d never ask!! Traveling, aside from photography is my biggest passion in life and any reason to hit the road is reason enough for me! Anything within 60 miles of my home in Providence, RI is included at no additional cost, anything outside of that area is subject to review and may require an overnight stay at a hotel depending on the distance. Please don’t hesitate to email if you have any questions or would like a custom travel quote for your photography experience.
Unfortunately, no. My work is hugely depending onw hat I choose to show. Part of what you’re hiring me for is my eye and decision making in what photos create the story of your day.
Lots! On average you can expect to receive between 50 – 100 images per hour that I am with you. For example, on an 8 hour wedding day you can expect between 400 – 800 images in your final delivery. No worries though, I promise you will be getting the best of the best!
Of course! I shoot everything digitally and deliver both social media ready files meant for sharing and print ready files, which can be sized up to an 8×10 and printed at your discretion. Anything larger requires more attention to detail and ap personalized printing process. Your online gallery makes it easy for you, friends and family to order albums, large prints and more!
If you know you’d like to work with me the first step is shooting me an email through the contact form! We’ll be in touch from there and all you’ll have to do is fill out your contract and send along a 50% retainer to book your date! Everything can be done online to make your life, and mine, that much easier!
“THE BEST DECISION WE MADE"
We had Sarah shoot our wedding in October and it was the best wedding decision we made. Everyone I show my photos to is SO impressed, we constantly get wonderful comments about them. From the amazing dance floor photos to our gorgeous formals, everything was perfect. We also loved having her at the wedding, she made me feel very relaxed and comfortable from start to finish. Seriously we are so grateful for Sarah and her amazing work and are so lucky she was able to capture our day.

"...IT WAS LIKE MEETING WITH AN OLD FRIEND"
Working with Sarah was a dream! My husband and I had a vision of how we wanted our wedding to be captured...candid, documentary style, raw emotion, and minimal posing...Sarah executed this vision flawlessly and left us with images of our day that give us ALL of the feels when we look through them. When we met with Sarah for the first time, it was like we were meeting up with an old friend. She listened to us, learned about us, and when the big day came, it was like having a friend there to capture the most important day of our lives.

"RAW, CANDID, EMOTIONAL"
Working with Sarah on our wedding day was by far the best planning decision that we made! She made the entire process completely seamless and put everyone at ease. I knew that her work would be phenomenal, but even that is an understatement. We were blown away by the images that she took— each one beautifully honest, emotional, raw, and candid, not only capturing the views of the day but the true feeling of it. We continue to recommend Sarah to everyone that we can, and we can’t wait to work with her for all of our momentous occasions to come!!
