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! 

A Saint Maria Goretti Parish Wedding Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Dominic and Morgan were married at St Maria Goretti, a Catholic Church in the Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh with only their immediate family and best friends present. I know it was very different from the original guest list of almost 200, but they made the most out […]

An Elegant Waterfront Wedding | Western Pennsylvania I have such an appreciation for 2020 brides and grooms. They have had to plan and reschedule and even recreate everything about their wedding day plans. Jenna and Jeffrey were faced with changing their date, location, venue, guest list and almost everything was different from the original plans…however […]

This is a very special wedding that I’m sharing today! You’re going to love the sunset portraits and the rustic portraits in the woods with glowy light peeking through the trees…. but what I loved the most about this wedding is the couple! They are family!! Sam is Aaron’s cousin and I have known Sam […]

A Sunrise Beach Wedding | Ocean City, Maryland Looking at these images…all I can think of is how gorgeous and perfect their wedding portraits are but this is not at all how their wedding day plans began soon after their 2019 engagement. Liz and Zach had a June 12, 2020 wedding day selected for their […]

There are so many things that I could say about this day…. about this couple… about their story… about their joy. Jedidiah and Olivia’s family and friends were just a DELIGHT to be around! Their entire family loves the Lord and has such a beautiful dynamic. They all have such a special love and respect […]

A Phillipsburg Elks Lodge and Country Club Wedding, Phillipsburg PA At every wedding, I see all kinds of family dynamics. Close families, hugging families, more serious families, long distance families, etc. Every now and then, I am welcomed into a family dynamic on the wedding day that leaves a lasting impression and that is most […]

A Dubois Country Club Wedding I fell in love with these two from the moment I met them at their engagement session!! It was kind of like a tease, because I had the best time with them and then I didn’t get to see them for almost a year! It was so sweet to reunite […]

A St. Michaels Wedding | Fryburg, PA Some people inquire and ask if I’ve worked at certain venues before. It’s almost like they think that if I have photographed there before, I’ll do a better job with their wedding pictures! What they don’t realize is that shooting at brand new places sparks a creativity in […]

A White Barn Wedding, Pittsburgh PA As soon as we pulled up, Lindsay’s mom welcomed Molly and I. Emma shared that she had been praying for the rain to clear and she knew that God would work a miracle so they could celebrate Lindsay and Jed’s dream wedding day. They had worked so hard to […]

A Chateau d’Argy Wedding | Brookville This day started with a lot of squeals, hugs and “oh my goodness it’s finally here!”. It seems like I was just capturing Noah and Jessica’s engagement session and now they are getting MARRIED! We spent their engagement session capturing romantic portraits and family photos with Noah’s children, Vance […]
