Romantic Storytelling, Fine Art Wedding Photographer

classic love stories in happily, ever after form.

Hey, Gorgeous!

I'm a natural light lover, hopeless romantic and Scooter's coffee advocate. I have a Californian heart but call this small town Kansas life home. I'm married to my high school sweetheart & am a mom to three little girls that love gold sparkles as much as I do. I believe in happily, ever afters because I've been writing my own fairy tale ending since I was a little girl.  I'm so happy you're here & I can't wait for us to get to know each other!

Get to know me

I'm Sara Rieth

Drop Dead Diva may not play in the background while I edit. 
 I use smiley faces a lot.  
I'm short and cute, coming in at the super-de-duper (wow! That aged me!) height of 5'3 and 3/4".
Pastels and beach colors are where it's at.  
I love to travel and want to take my daughters to see as much of this beautiful world as I can.
 If it's sparkly, I want it. 
I workout four days a week.
I was born near Hollywood, CA but Kansas has way better sunsets.
I LOVE a blended latte from Scooters.
I dance in the car, in the shower, in the middle of the grocery store.  

I thank God for all of my blessings I have in my life. For without Him, I'd have nothing.

10 Fun Facts

"When it came to our wedding day, photography was one of the most important elements to me for our day. I wanted something that directly reflected our love story and who we are as a couple. Photographs that somehow made our memories/feelings come back to life, regardless of how much time has passed. Those are pretty high expectations if you ask me, but Sara exceeded all of them. From the boudoir shoot (which the first time I met Sara in person, by the way) to our engagement session, to the wedding day, Sara made me feel confident, beautiful and most of all comfortable. She took her time, had a TON of patience with our fun loving goofy families/friends, and went above and beyond while trying to get to know us and making sure she was reflecting 'us' in every photograph. Throughout the entire process she was prompt with responses and made sure I felt at ease prior to and during the wedding. Also, the turn around time was outstanding from when the pictures were captured to when we received the full edited versions of them. I genuinely cannot say enough GOOD THINGS about Sara. Between her heart, her bubbly personality, her passion for not only the photography, but the couples who she is capturing and her insane eye & ability to bring emotion to life within her photographs - I would recommend her to anyone. Not just as a photographer, but a possible life long friend! Thank you Sara for everything! We are so SO blessed to have had you as part of our day!"


"Sara did an AMAZING job capturing our big day!! The images from our wedding look like they came straight out of a fairytale!! Not to mention she is incredibly easy to be around and talk to. I didn't meet Sara before our wedding because we decided to forgo engagement photos. That being said, meeting your photographer the day of could be a little intimidating--but I was immediately totally at ease with Sara! I cannot say enough good things about her, and will easily be recommending her to everyone I know who is looking for a wedding photographer! She completely nailed the vision I had for our wedding photos and I will be obsessing over them for years to come! :)"


"The thing I was most worried about when planning my wedding was finding a good photographer ... I had previously been in friends weddings who spent thousands of dollars and hated their photos. When I found Sara, she quickly put me at ease and erased my doubt. I loved my engagement pictures and my wedding pictures and have received countless compliments ! Sara goes above and beyond her role and was incredibly invested in our wedding day ! She perfectly portrayed my fairytale wedding !"


There aren't enough stars as an option to give Sara!!! She was seriously one of the BEST parts of our wedding, and the wedding process as a whole! Even before we booked Sara, she was so helpful at giving tips and working with us to see if she was the best fit for our wedding. Well of course she was the perfect fit and every step along the way in the wedding process she was there for us. She isn't just a photographer in the wedding planning, but a friend too! I can't tell you how many questions and emails I sent her that she got back with right away. Sara did both our engagement photos and wedding photos and both were everything I could have dreamed of and more! We have gotten so many compliments on our photos from our family and friends. Choosing Sara as our wedding photographer was one of the best things we did when it came to the wedding! It was a little bit chilly on our wedding day and the sun didn't want to come out of the sky, but our photos still turned out amazing because Sara is a miracle worker! Seriously, choose Sara as your photographer!!! You won't be disappointed at ALL!!   :)


When planning our big day one of the most important aspects for us was finding the right photographer. We knew we not only wanted someone who was insanely talented/creative, but we wanted someone who would mesh well with us. After doing some research I came across Sara on the Knot. With such an impressive profile I knew she was exactly what we were looking for. To say Sara is absolutely amazing would be an understatement. She exceeded every expectation I could have ever dreamed of. Getting married is such an incredible/stressful time in our lives and having a photographer you can trust/feel comfortable with is exactly what you want/need. Sara eases all the wedding worries and will work with you every step of the way. For us it was such a blessing knowing we were in such great hands. So thank you Sara for being amazing at what you do and for giving us some of the most BEAUTIFUL pictures for which we will cherish for a lifetime."


We are so thrilled we picked Sara to take our wedding photos. She walks you through the day and helps you along the way. She knows what photos to take and just nails it. She even helped me bustle my dress! One thing I didn't think would be so important but was was the timing of getting the photos back. I didn't think about that when booking her but I was so excited to get our pictures back so soon. She edits every single one and still was able to knock it our quickly. We got married in November and some of our friends from September still didn't have their pictures back by the time we got ours. I just love the pictures so much!!!
