About Sarah Peterson Photography

Sarah Peterson Photography


I'm a Bay Area native with over 12 years in the commercial photography realm. I got my start on the beaches of Los Angeles back in 2012 shooting commercial swimwear campaigns for some of the best designers in swim and fashion. That opened the door to countless opportunities with modeling agencies, reality television, and fashion design. In 2018 I made the move back up north to San Francisco where I grew up. With a wide network of friends and family up here, I found myself catapulted into the Wedding and Elopement industry - and absolutely loved it! I'm honored when I get to be a part of one of the best days of a couple's life together.

My unique background in commercial photography is what sets me apart. My photo editing skills are what I'm most proud of. I've dedicated years to understanding all Adobe can offer since I had to meet a high standard to be featured and published by elite photography organizations like Sports Illustrated and Playboy. Coming from a large commercial background also made me a great asset when it comes to directing and making sure we don't miss a single shot throughout your big day! My goal is to alleviate any stress I can off of you and make your big day feel light and easy.

    Our experience with Sarah was absolutely fantastic. From the beginning, communication was smooth and effortless, with prompt responses to emails and even video conferences to discuss details. Our photography package included an engagement photoshoot in addition to wedding photography. The quality of the photos from both our engagement session and wedding day was outstanding. One of the highlights was receiving a few 'preview pictures' shortly after each shoot, allowing us to enjoy some beautiful moments right away. The pricing was transparent, and the payment portal was easy to use, making the financial aspects stress-free. Throughout the process, Sarah provided invaluable advice on shot lists and was incredibly easy to work with when it came to posing. If we had a specific idea or location in mind for a photo, she not only took the lead but also enhanced our vision beyond what we could have imagined. She also emailed us ideas and example photos for different locations for our engagement photoshoot, helping us make our vision a reality. On our wedding day, Sarah took many photos throughout our events, including getting ready in the bridal suite, first looks, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, speeches, and reception. She was excellent at directing our family members to ensure we got all our posed family photos. Sarah also took some beautiful shots of just us post-ceremony. Throughout the dinner and reception, we felt at ease and relaxed knowing Sarah was there capturing every moment. Beyond the professional aspects, our interactions with our photographer made us feel like we were working with a close friend. She always helped us to feel comfortable in front of the camera, despite us being introverted and inexperienced with being professionally photographed. Her support and encouragement throughout the planning process and on the day of the wedding were truly appreciated and added to the overall wonderful experience. We highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a talented and personable photographer for their special day.

    I had the hardest time finding a photographer I clicked with until I found Sarah! I knew from the zoom consult I had to book her. She was funny and confident from the beginning and made such a fun addition to our day!!

    We are SO happy we had Sarah as our photographer. From the very beginning when we first reached out, she was organized and on top of her game! After our initial consult we knew we had to book her ASAP. Sarah is such a bright and fun presence. She brought the BEST energy to both our sunrise engagement shoot and our full wedding day when a hype woman is exactly what we needed. She is positive, confident, fun, and just plain GREAT at what she does! As for her photography, I’m sure that can speak for itself - it is truly gorgeous!! She beautifully captures meaningful moments and the results are phenomenal. She got so many sweet candid and action shots that captured the emotions of the day so well. Finally, Sarah was always professional and great with communication. It helps that she is a genuinely kind person who so clearly wants your day to turn out perfectly! Seriously, you won’t go wrong with booking Sarah. 11/10 would choose her again in a heartbeat!

  • I loved working with Sarah!

    Working with Sarah was enjoyable and easy! As someone who usually does not like taking photos, Sarah made the process easy and comfortable. She got all the shots we had discussed in advance and captured every special moment. Her rustic editing style was exactly what I was looking for and really highlighted our flowers, centerpieces, and color scheme. Can't recommend Sarah enough!
