About Sarah Cook

Hi, I’m Sarah

Thanks for stopping by…

Here is a little bit about me and a few of the important things in my life…

I guess not too many people can say I love my job!

I am just so, so lucky – photography is my passion. Whether I am taking pictures for a client or for myself, there truly is nothing that I would rather be doing.  I’m never very far away from a camera or my phone!

I have always been creative and had more than a keen interest in photography since my teens.  I studied journalism at London College of Printing and at that time realised I had an eye for a shot and a love of the darkroom.  Not long after this I found myself running the studio of advertising photographer, Gary Bryan,  in Central London.  Little did I know then that this would provide a great base for my own business, Sarah Cook Photography.  I then took a few years out to raise my family.  I have two amazing kids!  Within a few years I was drawn back to the world of photography.  I soon enrolled myself at college, firstly in London and then in the United States, to learn my craft.  I haven’t looked back since….

It is always a privilege to document some of the most important moments in life.  I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be in a position where I share milestone events with my customers.  Whether it be a wedding, the arrival of a new baby or a special birthday.

If you need a special image or are planning a wedding, please get in touch I would love to hear about it.  Or stop by our office there’s always coffee on the go and freshly baked chocolate biscuit cake.

I love…

These days you can find me in the heart of the Wye Valley, just over the border in the beautiful South Wales countryside.  I live on the family farm with my black lab.  It is always a special place to come home to.

Although, I am now based near Monmouth,  I have lived and travelled to some amazing places in my life.  My years in New York and Arizona spawned my love for photography.  I still miss that beautiful dessert light!  I also spent many years living and working in Weybridge, Surrey and I can still be found in this neck of the woods at least a couple of times a month capturing images for clients.

I love nature and the countryside and when I am not busy on a commission I can usually be found walking in the Wye Valley, exploring the Forest of Dean, renovating the house, visiting the coast or entertaining family and friends here at the farm.
