Born and raised in Roanoke, Va, I moved to Maryland to attend St. Mary’s College of Maryland and received my BA in Studio Art in 2006. In 2008 I received a Master of Art in Digital Art followed by a Master of Fine Art in Photography and Digital Imaging in 2009, both from Maryland Institute College of Art.
I am currently thrilled to be teaching Digital and Darkroom Photography, Sculpture and Jewelry at Garrison Forest School. I have previously taught at Maryland Institute College of Art as well as Anne Arundel Community College and Howard Community College.
When I am not teaching I work as a professional photographer (as well as a very unprofessional, backyard sculptor). I take inspiration for my commercial photographic work from my fine art practices as well as my appreciation for contemporary and classical fine art portraiture.
I am honored to be charged with the responsibility of capturing special occasions, milestones and moments, split seconds of time worth remembering.
Please contact me for more information about my philosophy of photographing, pricing, and availability.
“We could not be happier that we chose Sarah to photograph our special day! Personally, she is warm, genuine and put everyone at ease, and professionally, she is savvy, flexible and creative. We are amazed not only at how beautiful and artistic our photographs turned out, but also how much authentic emotion and movement and story that they capture! These are not your stereotypical posed wedding photos, they truly brought the feelings of the day alive and we are very grateful!” -Jamie and Charlie
“I am not surprised at the quality of photos Sarah Hart Sachs took during our special day, but am truly touched by the moments she captured and how well our personalities are portrayed! Thank you for helping me continue to relive that wonderful day!” -Hannah
“I could not have asked for a more talented, professional, and personable photographer for my wedding. I am absolutely thrilled with the way my wedding photos turned out and the hardest part is picking out which photo is my favorite. Sarah was able to capture so many genuine emotions throughout my wedding day, from the portraits of the wedding party, to the smiles and laughter of my guests at the reception. Sarah was lovely to work with, and I would not hesitate to hire her again for other events and to recommend her to others.” -Lisa
