Hello my friend. I'm Sarah DeShields, a Scottish lassie who moved to America thirteen years ago to marry my North Carolina man and raise two wild and wonderful boys. I'm a musician, artist, spiritual director and of course - a photographer.

I currently live in Boone North Carolina, where mountains sing echoes of Scottish songs to me and my children. I love period films, singing for old people, Lord of the Rings, dark chocolate, and my dog Finn, just to name a few wee gems. 

It's been said I carry a peaceful presence, a deep listening ear, and I am always interested in exploring what is good, true, and beautiful. I love to encourage people in their creative processes, which is why I co-founded the Elysian Art Collective

Wether it’s capturing the unfolding of your wedding day or working together on your latest creative endeavour, it is my delight to be in the process of creation with you. Get in touch and let’s weave something beautiful x



“Working with Sarah for our wedding was a dream. We fell in love with the tone and magic of her work and she captured the exact mood of our wedding day. She is a true artist and is incredibly professional. An absolute pleasure to work with, we will treasure Sarah's photographs of our day for the years to come.” - Amelia & Andrew

“She was the very first vendor we booked when putting together our small, mountain ceremony in Linville, NC, and we fell in love with her warm personality and beautiful work instantly. She wove herself seamlessly into our special day and made both my husband and I feel effortless and comfortable throughout the entire day while capturing the most stunning photos - we were, and still are, absolutely blown away! Sarah really does become a fly on the wall while still bringing such a vibrant and fun personality to the entire wedding day process, and now we have the most lovely collection of images to help us relive our special day. We are endlessly thankful and could not have imagined working with anyone else!” - Carson & John
