About the creator

Sarah Eichstedt

Hey there!

I'm Sarah: a fun-loving and color-obsessed wedding, lifestyle, & commercial photographer for joyful couples & creative brands. I live with my husband and our cuddly 60 lb pitbull, Spruce, in the hills of Oakland and mountains of Mammoth Lakes, California. A few things I enjoy: fall road trips, raising my plant babies, smoothies, and brunch!

In my mind there are 3 things that every photoshoot needs: beautiful light, spontaneous laughter, and a great location!

This guide takes care of 2 of those!
