Sarah Katherine Davis Photography


Hey there! I’m a wedding & elopement photographer based out of Louisville, Kentucky.

I’ve been photographing weddings for the past 14 years — it’s my jam. A few of my favorite things include: exploring new places, using houseplants to slowly turn my home into a jungle, good (and bad) coffee, and developing film in my free time.

Yes! As a queer person myself this is very important to me. I'm a proud member of Louisville's Fair Event Vendors Alliance and love working with LGBTQIA+ folks. I do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, national origin, or disability. I routinely research ways to be more inclusive and best serve all my couples, so rest assured I have your back. If you're a vendor wanting to learn how to be more inclusive I have a resource for that!
Yes! My passport is up to date and I love nothing more than a good adventure. I'd love to go wherever you are— from your own backyard all the way to Timbuktu. But seriously, I have a long list of locations I'm really interested in photographing a wedding or elopement in— Colorado, Utah, Oregon, Washington, and California are a few states whose scenery I'm always crushing on. I love visiting the Rocky Mountains, Blue Ridge Mountains, the desert, and literally any coastline from the Pacific Northwest to South America. Internationally, I’ve traveled to Japan, Peru, Costa Rica, France, Italy, England, China, Iceland, The Virgin Islands, and Portugal! I'd love to visit any of those spots again to photograph you and your love in some amazing landscapes or go somewhere brand new with you.
Yes! I offer a complimentary engagement session for all couples who book a wedding with me. Engagement sessions not only allow you to have images for your save the dates or for placing around the reception, but they also give us a chance to work together before the wedding so you’ll feel more comfortable in front of the camera and so we have a chance get to know each other better. Please take note that most engagement sessions need to be done Monday-Thursday because of wedding scheduling, but there is occasionally additional availability on the weekends. Typically these are scheduled 90 minutes before sunset or at sunrise for ideal light, but this can vary depending on location. Complimentary engagements need to take place in Louisville and cannot be traded for other goods or services. Couples sessions outside of a wedding package are $500. They are a wonderful way to capture more of who you are on a daily basis— outside of all the wedding clothing, flowers, decor, etc. Engagement sessions, anniversary sessions, or sessions just because are so much fun! I could go on and on. Get in contact if you're interested and we can plan something specific to you— it could be in your home, somewhere adventurous, in a favorite coffee shop or bar, at a botanical garden, etc...the options are pretty much endless!
I strive to enthusiastically & honestly photograph adventurous, genuine love. My style is largely journalistic, with bits of fine art flair throughout. I’m very hands-off in my coverage of the day (and even a bit sneaky to get those candid shots!), but I still love getting photos of just the two of you together as well. So while I won't stop you and make you pose while you're cutting the cake or dancing, I would like some time alone with you both to create images of you as a couple without your friends or family around watching. I love breaking this up into three smaller 10-15 minute time-slots when we can— during the first look, after the ceremony, and about 20 minutes before sunset. I always make sure to get shots of the details of the wedding: from your centerpieces to your shoes, so my images will capture all those little things you might have missed during the excitement of the day. My photos of the guests at the wedding are almost entirely journalistic. I don't stop people while eating for those “table shots”, instead I prefer to capture them laughing, dancing, drinking, and generally having a wonderful time.
