Tell me a little bit about your business!
I started out with an old Canon AE-1 film camera just for fun over a decade ago in college. Soon enough, my friends were requesting engagement photos and I began photographing people and the beautiful connections between them. Something clicked with me after that, and I felt like I’d finally found my calling. Sarah McCloskey Photography has been in business since 2016 and I absolutely love getting to capture so many real, organic moments for my clients!
What makes your work unique?
People often tell me that my work feels authentic and real. I’m not into forced, overly posed imagery. I want you to feel like YOU, just the best version possible. I bring my knowledge of light, movement, and composition and marry it with my ability to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera so that we can create timeless and genuine images together. There are a lot of cool trends in photography but I want to create imagery that stands the test of time. My style is classic, yet also modern, with true-to-life colors and dreamy skin tones.
Wedding days are such a fun, crazy whirlwind for every couple. It goes SO fast. My assistant and I will do our absolute best to capture the moments you didn’t even realize were happening – between both of you, between your families, and between your guests.
What is your ideal client like?
I so appreciate working with clients who fully trust me and my vision. I’m drawn to kind, funny, warm couples who are down to earth and true to themselves. Everyone always tells me they’re horrible in front of the camera before we meet – but if you can trust me, laugh at my idiotic jokes, love up on each other, and relax, then we can make the magic, I promise. Let’s have some fun together!
What is your approach to photography?
I am all about making sure you look your best and will only suggest poses and movement that flatter you. My aim is to bring out the best version of you in a photograph. There are moments where I will direct you with movement and pose ideas, and there are times when I favor a more candid, photojournalistic approach. Joining both of these styles together helps couples to feel like they can truly be themselves without having to worry about what to do next or where to put their hands. I got you!
