Meet Your Photographer


I’m Katie, the K in Sarah K. Photography. My full name is Sarah Katelyn, built from four generations deeply rooted in the oaks of Harkers Island, the tides of Atlantic, and through the woods of Marshallberg. I’m proud to be the wedding and portrait photographer for so many families in our Eastern North Carolina community, where everyone is family. And if this is our first time meeting, don’t worry. We’ll be family soon enough!

My story

Family is the inspiration behind every image. Weddings, new babies, family sessions - each shoot is an opportunity to capture generations of love, the hard fought journeys that got you where you are today. From the biggest moments to the smallest details, each image will keep those memories fresh in your heart.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your turnaround time?

For portrait sessions, my average turnaround time is 10-14 days, but that may change based on the season. If you’re in a time crunch, be sure to let me know in advance so we can schedule accordingly.

Where do you shoot?

Mini-sessions come about a couple times a year with predetermined locations, but for custom portraits, I work with each client individually to find the perfect place. Carteret County and surrounding areas have so much to offer: beach backdrops, lush greenery, and stunning historic districts.

What's the best time of day to schedule our session?

95% of my outdoor sessions are taken in the late afternoon or evening, the hour leading up to sunset. We call it “golden hour” for good reason. Sunrise sessions are also a unique option, if you’re an early riser. There is something so peaceful about a sunrise session on the beach. It creates the ideal environment to capture beautiful moments with your loved ones.

Will I be able to share my photos online without a watermark?

Of course! It is the ultimate form of flattery. I ask that you please credit my images when posting. Most of my business comes from word of mouth. Your referrals make my day.

Can I bring my fur baby to the shoot?

Please do! SKP is a pet friendly operation. Be sure to stash a handful of treats in your pocket. It works wonders for getting them to sit pretty for the camera.
