Classic. Crisp. Colorful. Composed.

Clients are drawn to Parisi Images’ classic approach to wedding photography and ultimately choose to work with me because they want images that showcase real relationships in real moments. I take pride in providing my couples with photographs firmly rooted in a sense of timelessness, without the interference of special filters and fancy photo tricks.

The bottom line: your images will look just as great in 100 years as they do at first-sight.

Established photographer, aspiring farmer. Yes, you read that right.

First things first: I love art (I studied graphic design and photography in college) and have been working in both fields professionally for just under a decade. More than art, I love genuine relationships, and am most happy when my creative endeavors facilitate the growth of kindred friendships.

My everyday life is filled with laughter, music, and the joy of the Incarnate Lord. Someday, I would like to add backyard chickens and a dairy cow to that mix. I recently married Mr. Dowlin, the love of my life and a Cincinnati native. We make our home in Hyde Park near the famous Carl’s Deli and spend our mornings drinking good coffee and reading good books.

Truthfully, my couples love their stories. But don’t take my word for it.

My husband and I met with MANY photographers before we met with Sarah and she was, without a doubt, the best we’d seen. She has an amazing, creative eye that captured our day fantastically!!! I am SO in love with out wedding day photos!! —Submitted by Cheryl

Nearly every time people look at our wedding pictures they ask about our photographer. I had seen Sarah’s work before we booked her for our wedding, so I knew that she would do a great job. Even so, I was not prepared for how many amazing moments she would capture on my own wedding day. She works well with people’s ideas, but she also has great ideas of her own. We had enough things to htink about on our wedding day without worrying about our pictures, so when we hired Sarah, we chose to trust her eye and expertise to know when to capture moments or compose portratis, and we are so glad we did. For us, Parisi Images was stress-free, high-quality, authentic, memory-preserving wedding photography. —Submitted by Nicki

Sarah did a phenomenal job at our wedding! Her work truly captured all of the non-scripted moments that made the wedding memorable, and the final images were wonderful. She was very friendly and professional to work with and made us feel at ease.” —Submitted by Michael

You did a GREAT job with the pictures!!! I am so happy with them. Thanks soooo much, Sarah. —Submitted by Evie

Sarah is a very supportive, talented, and professional photographer. She was flexible when there were hiccups with our date for th eengagment pictures and was as supportive as a friend would be when dealing with a stressed out bride! Our engagement pictures were amazing and our wedding pictures were excellent. Take the time to let Sarah know exactly what traditional photos that you would like, she will take care of the artistic ones!” —Submitted by Emily



I believe that photography is as much about what goes on behind the camera as in front of it. Here are some of my favorite things that inspire my work.
