You might previously know me as Sarah spackman or sarah jessica photography.... well it's still the same me, but with a new name! That's right! ya girl is married now!

if this is our first time encountering one another, then welcome! i am so glad you are here! and brace yourself cause we like to keep it weird and wild around here.

i'm a small town girl who grew up in northern california, i've been riding horses since the age of 7 and now have 2 of my very own. i spend most days looking out on the window enjoying the view of the open desert that is our ranch we currently live on.

when i am not photographing cowboy couples or working with amazing brands i am usually volunteering at our church, riding my ponies, or snuggling up to my cute husband.

my love language is sarcasm and laughter, and while I am always down for those steamy, moody photoshoots, the ones where we are laughing and being goofballs is really where it's at for me.

this job has brought me to some pretty cool places and i am always down to travel anywhere the roads are made of dirt.

the western lifestyle is not for the faint of heart, and i believe the most beautiful stories come from it. let me tell that story for you. i am so excited for us to get to know each other even more!

howdy! my name is sarah Elrod!

"Sarah is the most down to earth photographer I have ever had the opportunity to work with. She loves what she does + it shows. We decided on Sarah to be our wedding photographer, because her work is beautiful but mainly because of how she responded to our initial inquiry. She made us feel like she was genuinely interested in getting to know us.

Every single other photographer I messaged responded with a pre typed out sounding email response, it did not seem personal at all. Where as Sarah asked questions to get to know us better + emphasized how she wanted to make sure she was a good fit for us, before we had even discussed hiring her.We did our family photos with her this last weekend, we haven't even gotten all of them back yet + we are already IN LOVE with what we have seen.

We are so beyond happy we made the choice we did in hiring Sarah, we are so lucky to have found her to be there for our wedding day. As our new family photographer + a new friend."
