Hi there! - Sara May Photography Sara May Photography

Hi there!

I’ve captured over 250 weddings throughout the Pacific Northwest, across the country and abroad. From mountain tops to tropical beaches & castles to freezing snowstorms, I have photographed my clients in some truly amazing places.

My photos have been featured by The Knot, Glamour Weddings, Oregon Bride Magazine, Portland Bride & Groom and more.


I believe a great smile and a solid handshake go a very long way. It took me years to get photos up on my own walls (yikes!). I love cast iron and cooking from scratch. I have zero complaints about Portland weather — it’s absolutely perfect. I genuinely enjoy hearing people’s love stories. I am, hands down, the BEST marshmallow roaster in the universe. 

That bearded fellow there is my lovely husband, Jaime. We have two beautiful daughters together. Jaime and I have known each other since junior high. In fact, here’s how he proposed to me back then. And another interesting tid bit: he and I were born just five hours apart. Isn’t that crazy?  

I love to ride. My dad got my whole family into motorcycles when we were young. My husband rides too  — in fact, we do multiple bike trips together every year, exploring North America. (Side note: my dad was the one that got me into photography. So I guess I have a lot to thank him for!)


While I love to get out, I equally love staying in. Kids to bed, pjs on and popcorn in my lap, heck yes. I recently watched and loved Ozark & The Handmaid’s Tale. An all-time fav is The Newsroom (or anything by Aaron Sorkin). Now enjoy this stock photo since there are definitely no photos of me watching tv in my pajamas.
