What do you get when you mix a graphic design degree with a Crossfit competition, a dead-end job, and a “fu*$# it, I’m in!!!” moment?
These days I’m busy chasing golden hour with you all over New England, but once upon a time I was stuck behind a desk designing for a dying newspaper and secretly reading wedding photography blogs.
An invitation to shoot an event?
A perfectly-timed ad for a course by my favorite photography couple?
And building up my business, awesome client by client, so I could leave that dead-end job?
I’d been taking photos forever but wasn’t sure I could make a life out of it, until…
Nailed it – Sarah Surette Photography!
Just to be clear… I was photographing that Crossfit competition.
Sangria (or cartwheels)
at the beach > burpees always,
And then another… and another? Check.
Life changing. (That was my ALL IN moment. Once I threw down my credit card there was no going back.)
DONE AND DONE
I’m all about the freedom to be your real, joyful, slightly awkward self.
(Ok, #1, I LOVE people who are unapologetically themselves… Jonathan Van Ness, Lady Gaga, and Beyonce are most definitely invited to my dream dinner party. And #2, I’m mildly awkward too. We’re in it together.)
And the fun you have living in the moment that we capture is forever.
Getting to look back on those major heart-eyes memories for all time? Yes, please.
I’m here to leave you with happy, bright images that you’re totally,
“MIGHT EVEN SHOW THESE OFF TO MY CAT”-LEVEL-OBSESSED WITH.
So basically, I have the best job ever.
As your third wheel, hype woman, and
Every shoot to perfection.
Capturing your best memories across New England from beaches to backyards.
I knowww, not Dunks, don’t tell Boston…
Umm well… that’s my handsome fur baby, Linus.
(He mostly just sleeps while I edit.)
Currently, Shawn Mendes, and a reignited Penn Badgley crush because of “You.” Judge me, it’s fine.
When I’m not behind the camera, you’ll find me in a concert crowd. Not exactly a budget-friendly addiction but you gotta live life, right?!
