Growing Love

Browse by Category

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.

Meet Sarah

That’s why I make a point to blog at least three days a week, ever week, maintain a quick turn-around time for wedding images, and work to over-communicate with my clients. Sometimes, however, life happens… and my […]

Guys, Buck and I love being married to each other. LOVE IT. And we love helping others love their marriages, too. One way we help each other love more deeply is to cultivate our friendship, and one way wwe do that is by regular date nights. Our first date was on a Friday night. Our second date was […]

These two were married in Chicago in November. We didn’t have a chance to do an engagement session beforehand, so we decided on an anniversary session in the spring instead. Helllooooo, cherry blossoms! There’s something so sweet about familiar love. I love how comfortable these two are together, and how they seem to melt into each other. […]

A few nights ago, Buck and I grabbed a quick bite to eat before running some post-work errands, and I spent part of dinner talking excitedly about some major changes I’m hoping to make to my business, dreams for the future, ways I hope to expand, and a few other things. The longer I talked, the more I […]
