Sarah grew up in both beautiful Savannah, Georgia and coastal Maine, and inherited the photography obsession from her mother (who still clings to an old Pentax K1000!) She graduated with high honors from Wesleyan University in 2001 and continued her arts education at Parsons in New York City. She photographed her first wedding in 2003, and it was love at first shot... She lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with her husband and two sweet cats, and her studio is just a subway stop from Manhattan, in the artists' district of Long Island City.
Sarah is a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America, and the National Press Photographers of America. Her documentary series on Sikhs was exhibited at the Queens Museum of Art and was filmed shooting for a program on the National Geographic Network. Sarah's work has been published in New York Magazine's Wedding edition, The New York Times, Time Out NY, Popular Photography, Today's Parent Magazine and featured on popular wedding sites such as Style Me Pretty, Junebug, Brooklyn Bride, Every Last Detail, and many more... Sarah Tew Photography was named a pick in the Knot's 2011 "Best of Weddings" short list of New York City wedding photographers, and has won a Bride's Choice award from WeddingWire.com for 3 years in a row. Two Bright Lights gave her an editor's choice award in 2013.
