Hello, and welcome to the SH Blog! I'm Sara Haines, and I am a lifestyle, wedding, and portrait photographer based in Brookville, Pennsylvania. I hope you grab some coffee and enjoy viewing my latest work and getting a little peek into my life! 

Barbara and Tony’s wedding day was absolutely beautiful.  The weather was incredible, the light was perfect, the timeline was amazing but most importantly, watching these two start their life together was inspiring and encouraging. They love one another in such a pure and joyful way and their day was centered more around their marriage than […]

What can I say? I love what I do….and surprise proposals hold such a special place in my heart. Brandon was so on top of planning his proposal to Tessa! He reached out to me a little over a month ago before asking if I would capture his surprise proposal. We discussed potential locations and […]

This session is beautiful… if I do say so myself! It’s colorful, it’s vibrant, it’s full of joy and it’s also LONG! It’s a lengthy post because I just had so many favorites and I absolutely loved my time with these two last week! Kira and Anthony’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were […]

A Chateau d’Argy Wedding, Brookville PA Claire and I have been shooting back to back weddings for weeks now and this was our last wedding before a three week break. It was one to end with!! The energy and joy left us so thankful for the sweet couples that we get to call our own! […]

There’s always a little bit of a struggle doing an engagement session as winter approaches. There’s a lack of color because we’re missing the leaves and the grass and the greenery! However, it’s not impossible to have a great shoot in the middle of November and Kimberly & Michael’s shoot is proof of that! It […]

Kaitlin and David are so relaxed, up for anything and they trusted me. We walked around a gorgeous farm in Jefferson County, the light was perfect, the cows were mooing in background and the location couldn’t have been more perfect! Give me a willow tree, a pond, and wildflowers and I’m a happy girl. Kaitlin […]

This past week I met up with new friends that seemed like I’ve known them forever! Becky and Marty had the most perfect day for a shoot! The trees still had leaves, the temperature wasn’t too hot or too cold, the light was gorgeous and the setting was so colorful! Their shoot was not from […]

Within minutes of walking up to a new couple, I can tell that we are truly a great fit. This was especially true with Heather and Cody. It was border-line raining and I knew that I were taking a big chance still following through with their engagement session despite the forecast. They were so relaxed. […]

When I first decide if I’m a good fit with my potential SH Couples, I’m looking for a few things…. one of those things is that this couple keeps joyful! I’ve found over the years that couples that take themselves super seriously aren’t always the best fit for me. I love it when couples let […]

A Tuck’d Inn Farm Wedding, Cooksburg PA Kiana and Chad’s wedding day was what a country couple’s wedding dreams are made of! They had gorgeous fall colors in the background of their portraits, the ceremony overlooked an open field, their sunset portraits were taken by a small pond and their reception was held in a […]
