Sarah Craven Photography

Hey, I'm Sarah! Welcome to my love, photography. I've been in the game for almost a decade and have extensive experience in commercial, weddings and lifestyle photography. Don't ask me to pick my favourite because as long as I have my camera I'm in a world of bliss. I'm also a mumma to three gorgeous beings, my first love and creation. I'm a multi business owner with my husband, he's literally my hero. I'm fairly messy but it's an organised mess, I'm a huge perfectionist but I can never put away my shoes and I love a good almond flat white and my drink of choice is always Champagne (because someones always got something to celebrate). I digress.... Let me tell you what I can do.. I have backgrounds in hospitality and business marketing. I married it all together by studying a lot and creating a solution that suits everyone. Once I brought photography into it I was able to create a unique package that included styling, design, photography and my signature editing skills. I have now been creating imagery for all types of commercial projects such as food, menus, books, magazine editorials, business websites, social media content and print media. It's kind of the all in one service...a dissection of your business, brand, project, and assessment on your ideal goal and then a design and creation that fits the bill. It's a majorly exciting process and it gives me tingles every time.
