Sarah inherited the obsession with photography from her mother and grandmother, and was driven to follow her artistic pursuits into a profession when she moved to New York City as a young adult. She graduated with high honors from Wesleyan University in 2001 and continued her arts education at Parsons School of Design. Over the last 15+ years, Sarah grew a photography career that spanned across weddings and portraiture to products and press coverage. Freshly relocated to the Asheville, NC area, she is building a new niche in business branding photography for entrepreneurs and companies who wish to consistently elevate the visuals for effective story-telling on their website, marketing, and social media posts. 

Sarah is a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America, and was interviewed for Capture Magazine's cover story on same sex wedding photography.  Her documentary series on Sikhs was exhibited at NYC's Queens Museum of Art and she was once filmed shooting for a program on the National Geographic Network.  Sarah's work has been published in New York Magazine, The New York Times, The Knot, Popular Photography, Today's Parent Magazine, Wedding Pride & Wedding Guide Magazines, and her wedding work has been featured on popular sites including Style Me Pretty, Offbeat Bride, Junebug, Brooklyn Bride, Every Last Detail, Reverie Gallery, Artfully Wed, and so many more...

Two Bright Lights has given her an Editor's Choice award 3 years in a row, and Sarah Tew Photography was twice named to The Knot's "Best of Weddings" short list of New York City wedding photographers. Scores of happy client reviews and testimonials across the web attest to her warm personality, creativity behind the camera, commitment to excellent communication, and a long history of going above and beyond for her clients.
