Thanks for landing on my page, and digging even further to read this bio.
I say I am a photographer because I am! I am not just a wedding, family, newborn, sports, landscape, event, corporate etc photographer, I am all of those things. I am a photographer, of events, milestones, moments and scenes. As a photographer it is often said we must choose one genre and specialize, but I haven't yet and won't start now.
To sum me up as a person; I'm a mom to two amazing (oftentimes crazy) boys, married to my best friend for over 13 years, a community volunteer and outdoor enthusiast.
I've lived in Alberta for over 15 years but I originally called Ontario home. Growing up in the beautiful area of Muskoka and Georgian Bay; a passion for landscape photography began at a young age. I grew up with a camera in hand, using film and a dark room.
I always loved landscape photography (and still do; you can check it out on Instagram @_sarahmanton) but ten years ago friends of mine really pushed me out of my comfort zone and asked me to be their wedding photographer. After that first experience (despite it being terrifying) I was motivated to continue with portrait photography.
My approach to capturing you is simple, natural, laid back and non-intrusive. I take a photojournalistic approach, focusing on moments and details; more candid and less posed. I want clients to enjoy their experience with me and absolutely cherish their images.
I'd love to hear from you!

"We chose Sarah for our wedding because of the amazing job she did at my brother's wedding the summer before ours! She took some absolutely stunning photos of our special day and was so patient and efficient with taking pictures of our guests. Posing for the pictures didn't feel like a chore and she was welcome to any ideas we had. Our photos turned out very natural looking and Sarah was able to capture each special moment so that we have many perfect reminders of our wedding for years to come!"
