mEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
hey, hi, hellooo
i'm sarai, it's so nice to meet you!
I am so glad you're here and somehow found yourself on this page to (hopefully) find out a little more about the photographer you are about to hire- well, here it goes!
Born and raised in the sunny state of southern california, I quickly fell in love with the wonder of photography. having the ability to freeze moments of life and save them as little pocket size time capsules memorized me at such a young age. I practically had the world at my fingertips, San Diego gave me a whirlwind of opportunities to learn and grow in this new art. there was a give and take of what I truly loved to capture, but I always ran back to my love for music. being raised by parents who are products of the 60's, my home was always filled with music from the time we woke up to the time we went to sleep, midweek trips to concerts were routine and essential to say the least. the serenity a live music environment contains is unmatched, so effortless and boundless in the deep rooted joy that radiates the room of just having the ability to be in community with others who love what you love. I knew I wanted to pause this feeling and relive it and relive it and relive it. I started bringing my camera to shows in high school, got really crappy shots but was just stoked to be there. flash forward to now, I'm 23 and living my dreams. my camera has taken me so much further and taught me so much more value than I could have ever dreamt possible. the relationships i've formed and have carried for years through my silly little lens are the things I hold nearest and dearest to my heart.
my goal as a photographer has always been to create a moment, to tell a story that feels so real to an outsider looking in. to be in a space and freeze the emotion you feel in that present place.
I've had a few years to practice but continually seek to grow and learn from the people I work with and community I surround myself with.
I would love nothing more than to capture all of your life's special moments for you to cherish for life!
