Hey there, Friend!

I’m so glad you’re here.  I’m hoping that means I will get to hear all about the plans you’re making.  Engagement? Wedding? Boudoir?  Yes!!  When there are experiences going on in life, I want to be there with you.  I think humans are the cat’s pajamas.  And, connection is what this photography is all about.

I am wrapping up my 14th year as a professional wedding photographer and my 4th year back in Knoxville.  Texas native, I moved to the Knoxville area at the age of 7 and grew up in this beautiful East Tennessee.  After college I moved from the mountains and settled on the beaches of North Carolina.  We moved back to Tennessee in 2018 and have situated ourselves on a little 15 acre farm in West Knoxville; a “Suburban Farm,” if there is such a thing, that we call Westland Farms.

I laugh a little when I say “Farm,” because while it is a real-deal farm with barn, horse stables, cattle, chickens, veggie plots, creeks, a pond, and all that this gorgeous part of Tennessee calls nature…we are right in the middle of everything that Farragut, Bearden, Northshore, and Downtown Knoxville have to offer. The best of both worlds, we think!! 

My photography sessions are about capturing moments just as they are at that very time.  It is my goal that you enter into our time together confident and relaxed, trusting that your images will be the true representation of you and your event.  Under Sarah Keenan, Photographer falls both my Engagement and Wedding Photography, Westland Farms Studio, and my Knoxville Boudoir Photography, The Queen and The Key.  

As for me… well, I love love.  Yeeesss, I know, sounds silly.  But, I do!  I am a southern girl with a mighty soul that cries at just about every wedding that I photograph, belts old country love songs while I cook dinner, and would prefer a margarita and and a night slow dancing with my hubs to any other night out.  I have an affinity to all things happy, wild, and off of the beaten path.  I love black and white, and all shades of blue.  I NEED sunshine, romance, and laughter.  I love inspirational quotes, meeting new people, flowers, the outdoors, and Audible.  My go-to drink is coffee.  My outlet is dance.  And, aallllll of my free time is spent with my crew, including our German Shepherds, Gaia and Luna.

My husband, Joe and I, are parents to seven kiddos ranging in age from 20+ to almost 5 years old.  My default is laughter and, man!  Laughter has brought more peace to our crazy world than I ever thought possible.  I am an enneagram 3 wing 4 {say it ain’t so!}.  I am a hustler, dedicated to my family and clients and couldn’t believe more in the importance of Family, Grace, and the Grit behind a hard working human.

I am grateful for this hilarious, exciting, emotional career full of people like you.  Connections with others and the creation of awesome images is my number one priority.  I am so glad that you’ve stopped by and are looking around.  I’m not certain that we’ve even met.  But, I can tell you that I am already entirely excited about working with and serving you.

Pick-up that phone and shoot me a text.  Or, call!  I am standing by!

with grit & grace

I can’t even explain what a wonderful job Sarah did with our photos. Not only did she make us feel comfortable, she was also easy to work with, and we enjoyed her sense of humor. We got our photos back in a few week’s time and are completely enamored with so many of the shots she took. My heart still sings every time I look through my pictures.
