Well, hey ya’ll!
I’m Sara Beth! I am Memphis based since 2001, but I come from God’s Country – The Great Smokey Mountains, Maryville, to be exact. I’m the proud mother of two kiddos, Maddox (9) and Sienna (12), and a fur baby cat, Molly-Wally-Doodle-All-A-Day (1ish).
As a fan of learning, I have a meandering higher education path focusing on marketing, communications, and art! I am never a fan of walking in a straight line, so I like to gather higher education credits like a squirrel gathers acorns in fall.
My parents owned a photography franchise company, and I had been doing studio photography since 14, published by 15ish. Finally, I was bit by the wedding bug at my first wedding I photographed at age 16! So, I started my photography company by 22, which I ran for 7 years before switching careers! So, basically, I’ve been doing weddings for 9452394820395798 years.
Horses. Oh, horses, the terrible addiction for which there is no cure. I grew up eventing, which is the craziest sport, much like a triathlon for horses and riders. I still ride as often as I can, and my current equine project is Always a Lady ++++// ( All the dashes and plus signs basically means she’s like really fancy and does well in shows). It’s the sport you never master, and I love every second of it.
My Path to BBSE:
I hold a few roles at BBSE; I was brought on in 2019 as a creative and business development director and events manager. I help oversee the artistic direction in the photo and videos produced for our youtube channel or magazine shoots. Katherine will also join our heads to discuss business development plans. I will also step in as a lead planner for events! I love love love working with this ridiculously talented and dedicated team. Having such a robust team of professionals is inspiring, and working together to execute events for our clients is just a blast.
Favorite Part of a Wedding:
The first dances GET ME almost every time. It’s such a sweet celebration of love and that moment with music is always just straight out of a movie, and it makes me swoon … maybe cry a little. No matter how many weddings you are a part of, LOVE is always so beautiful!
