derrick + sarah
Throughout high school, Derrick and I always were in the same friend group. We saw each other periodically but always just as friends. Derrick served a 2 year mission for our church while I stayed back home in Twin Falls starting my photography business. After he returned, we started hanging out with some of our friends again and then started talking. I tried to convince him to hang out with me, which took a few weeks but he came around. Once we started hanging out, it became a daily thing. There weren’t many days where we wouldn’t see each other and that quickly became more than just friends. Our friendship was something of trust and honesty and it blossomed into a beautiful love story that I cherish everyday.
In December of 2020, on a cold New Year’s Eve, Derrick proposed to me in the beautiful snow covered trees of Kamiah, Idaho. Surrounded by his family, we rang in the New Year. We started planning our wedding for June of 2020, when the Coronavirus started putting a damper on things. We pushed our wedding date to March 26th where we joined hands and were married, with 8 people around us. We did everything backwards, taking formals 3 months after getting married, a reception a few weeks later and then a sealing. We decided on us, and no matter what life throws at us, we choose each other.
We love experiencing life and enjoy new adventures and are always open to new ideas!
We've had uncomfortable photoshoots where everything is super posed and unnatural. Your session is catered to you, we jam out to music, dance, and have a great time!
Being in the mountains, forest, next to the ocean or lake, that's where we love to be.
We got married last year in the midst of COVID-19. We understand the stress of wedding planning and want to help alleviate any stress and help make your wedding day magical!
We love doing everything together, so when you book us for photo AND video, you’re getting the whole package. We love traveling all over southern Idaho, you can find us in Cascade in the beautiful Mountains, near Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls, the Bruneau Sand Dunes and so much more. No idea or location is off limits. Trying new foods wherever we go, booking new and different Airbnbs, and exploring the outdoors. We specialize in weddings because we love celebrating love and creating a luxurious experience so you can look back on your wedding day feeling completely loved and celebrated.
Your story means so much to us. Creating real friendships with our couples is one of our favorite things and we love looking at the exciting things your future holds!
Our wedding day was split into different days because of covid. One of our regrets is not getting it professionally captured. There were so many missed moments that we won't be able to print for our home or show our future children. Including pictures as simple as the two of us smiling.
These moments, your moments matter to us. We want your day to be captured beautifully to show future generations forever.
what clients are saying about us
The Finch Film and Photo team are a delight! Their willingness to go above and beyond for the clients is amazing. They are so helpful. I have never seen a photographer make a couple or family members feel so comfortable while in front of the camera. As a Wedding Planner there is no other wedding photographer I would rather work with. The photos and Video are amazing and anytime I recommend Finch Film and Photo my clients are beyond ecstatic at their photos! Happy Bride Happy Vendors!
10/10 highly recommend them! Sarah and Derrick were so great! Couldn’t say enough good things about them! They made my husband and I feel so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera on our big day and the editing and quality of the pictures and videography is unreal!
Sarah and Derrick are the absolute best! Not only we’re the pictures amazing but they were so professional and made you feel so comfortable throughout the experience. I would definitely recommend her to photo shy couples! She made our wedding day such a great experience we got so many compliments from family and friends about how kind and welcoming they were to guests! I would recommend to any bride!
Sarah was amazing to work with! She was great at telling us poses, how to move & where to look. She also made sure to capture exactly what we wanted. She was a trooper and took our engagements in the rain a few hours away from her home. She listened to what we wanted and brought it to life. She was also very patient with family and all the situations going on wedding day. She pays attention to what you ask for and delivers. Working with her is so easy and comfortable. The pictures are beautiful!
