  • Sarah Maren Whitehead

  • Photographer, Doer of ALL THE THINGS
  • Sarah got her hands on a camera for the first time when she was 7 years old. When her mother had the film developed, she asked who Sarah had let take the pictures because they were so lovely. Her mother was surprised to find Sarah and taken all the images. With encouragement from a family friend who was a photographer, Sarah spent the bulk of her youth making pictures of her family, friends and pets. In high school she was the Photo Editor for the school paper, and got her first taste of what shooting for publication was like. She pursued the arts in college and continued her photography career working for a studio, her college paper and free lancing. She has been a professional photographer for 19 years working as Sarah Maren Photography. Sarah brings her love of light and fun, comfortable personality to every aspect of her business and life. When she’s not working you’ll find Sarah in the kitchen testing recipes or out on a run training for her next half marathon.
Dustin Whitehead

  • Photographer, Tech Magician
  • Dustin started his career in photography in 2005 – the year he met and married Sarah. Dustin, the son of a NASA engineer, has always had a brain for the technical. He studied computer engineering at Purdue University and brought Sarah Maren Photography into the digital age. Dustin is a self taught photographer (because Sarah is not a patient teacher) who studied photography independently and shot with as many photographers as he could. He loves the technical aspect of photography and pushing the limits of what his camera and computer can do. When Dustin isn’t photographing you’ll find him building computers from scratch, teaching himself a new coding language or jumping on the trampoline with his kids.
