I'm Sara Fitz
and here's my cliffnotes...
I am married to a hottie named Kevin, momma to a fur baby named Reese, and run this little photo biz with my sister, Bri, who is also my best friend. I was a COVID bride who had to postpone an epic campground wedding in exchange for an intimate elopement in the mountains and coastline of Acadia National Park, Maine; I wanted to elope in the first place, so I like to joke with Kevin that if anyone won that battle, it was definitely me. Don't worry, Kev is still got his big party in September 2021 and it was every thing we could have ever hoped for!
We live in Bucks County PA, tucked away in our forever home in the woods and love to jump around between my family's AirBNB houses in Vermont, Poconos, and Cape May. I love traveling so if you ask me where my next destination is, I could probably list a minimum of 3 different booked destinations on the spot.
I am really passionate about rescuing dogs so I started Reese's Rescue in 2019, an initiative I started with the help of my clients! How's it work? Throughout the season we tally up how many couples include their dogs in their session or wedding and then at the end of the year we take a portion of our proceeds from each to donate to the year's chosen dog rescue! So far we have donated a total of $540 and growing to animal shelters and rescues alike.
My favorite part of running this biz is getting to redefine how wedding photography works! I refuse to run a "photoshoot". Instead, I'm going to take you guys on an exciting new adventure or on your favorite date. We aren't going to "pose", we are going to *very literally* exercise your love. The smiles and emotions you see in my photos are as real as it gets. And don't sweat it because the camera is only a tool I use to freeze your memories for a lifetime of reminiscing.
National Parks and traveling to new countries are both my favorite. I love visiting new places with Kevin and Bri for vacations and equally adore exploring them with my couples for their Elopements, Micro Weddings and Love Sessions. While visiting these remote locations, I am very passionate about following the Leave No Trace ethics for others to visit after us and the wildlife that calls these beautiful places their homes. During my travels, you best bet I am capturing amazing landscapes along the way; feel free to shop my digital and printed landscape images for your home, lock screen, or more in my Travel Collective Gallery below.
Meet Bri, the Executive Assistant, my "I don't know how this business would run without you" girl. Bri helps me with everything behind-the-scenes from running the Photo Journal, editing, admin and inbox maintenance, designing Wedded Logo and Heirloom Keepsake Albums, to helping craft up styled shoot projects with me.
Bri is an old soul and enjoys Outlander, brie cheese (lol), Starbucks, and wants to visit Scotland in the near future. She got a bachelor's degree in English before joining the SFC team. We both enjoy making annual trips to Disney together and I personally love dragging her with me to Universal's Harry Potter World. She also has a rescue pup, Daphne, who is a Bluetick Coonhound mix that she adores.
Meet Alexa, the other bread to my butter. Alexa is the lead photographer for Associate Weddings and one of my rotating Second Shooters! You won't catch any other rando associate photographer at your wedding; Alexa is the one-and-only and damn good at it. Not to mention, she knows how to bring a good-ass-time to the party.
She shoots EXACTLY like me after a year of intensive training before starting her role as an Associate team leader. She also has taken on the role of Office Assistant with Bri and I as Sara Fitz Co. grows, helping out with emails and editing.
How do we know each other? We were roommates at Rowan Universaity many moons ago. Fun fact, Alexa was my first ever "model" while I was learning photography in college.
