Photos from the Harty

Wedding, Event, Lifestyle Photography ı Washington, DC & the world

Photos from the Harty is a small team of wedding, event, & lifestyle photographers. The name Harty was born from a riff on Sara's maiden name (Hartenstine) and it stuck. While Sara has “retired” as the primary photographer and handed the reigns to Katie, she remains very much a part of the business – and the wedding experience of her clients! We've photographed - and attended - tons of events, weddings, etc. We've learned a lot. One of the things that has really stuck with us is this: not only do you need to love your photos, but you also need to love the photographer. You'll be spending the majority of your day with this person. So, please, check out our site. Check out our blog. See if you like our work. If you like what you see and like what you read, we encourage you to contact us and set up a time you meet!

If anyone needs me this summer, I’ll be here. 🤪🍦😍

We were featured on Gay Weddings and Marriage Magazine! We LOVED this sweet wedding!

If you are suffering from a broken heart - then the doctors are in!
Brett and Nick met at Georgetown University while making their way through medical school. Their love will make you smile! Congratulations! Photos From the Harty

Whenever people ask me about my favorite season, I always say “fall” ... but then cherry blossom season comes around. 😍🌸

Walking into the week with smiles on our faces! We had an awesome weekend and met some really fun couples at the @districtblissevents couples social with @mervisdiamond and @districtwineryweddings. We did a mini styled shoot with items from @thebridalroomva and @plantsalive which we’re excited to edit and share with you all. Stay tuned for fun stuff coming soon! ⠀

You'd think being photographers, we would have a million photos of ourselves. Well, evidently that's not the case (at least not many where Sara isn't pretending to pick her nose, and Katie isn't making super uncomfortable faces-- haha)! We finally took some real photos for the first time in quite a while! Thanks to our friend, Kendall Leigh Photography!

Since we both live in Virginia now (Arlington and Alexandria, to be specific), we’re not in the city nearly as often, but when we do have the chance to go, we soak it alllll in.
#photosfromtheharty

This sweet little girl is just way too cute not to share a million photos of. 🥰 We’re really trying to do a better job about sharing our non-wedding work! As much as we loooooooove weddings and engagement photos (seriously, they’re definitely our “thing” more than anything), we also love all the other work we do— family photos, branding photos, corporate work, head shots, and the list goes on and on. 😍
#photosfromtheharty @ Alexandria, Virginia

We always tell people, the more details you have, the better. Give us all your stationary. Yes- ALL of it, down to the stamps. We love it alllllll.

So, who got a ring over the holidays? Any newly-engaged valentines out there?! One of our major guilty pleasures is looking at rings online, so if you’re engaged, DM us a photo of yours!
#photosfromhart

So, we had to hold off on posting these photos for a little while for obvious reasons (😉) and then they got buried in our “ready to post” folder, but we are SO excited for our fellow creative friend @skleberdesign and her husband on their soon-to-be baby boy! This shoot was so much fun, we couldn’t just pick one photo to share... so enjoy this handful!
#photosfromtheharty

We’ve been loving everyone’s Valentines Day posts... you all are so cute, and we just gotta say if anyone could win Valentine’s Day, these two would win because they posted about how they’re spending the evening playing Mario Kart, and that just makes us smile so much. So here’s a photo of the first time they saw each other on their wedding day. ☺️⠀

Just another reason we LOVE Mervis Diamond Importers!! They give back to their clients all the time, love doing giveaways such as this one, and even host special events for their couples to celebrate being engaged.

We work with them all the time, and can truly say they're one of our favorite companies in the DMV!

The couple in this photo is one of our Photos from the Harty couples for 2019! While we didn't take this photo, we'd love if you'd click on over to this post from Mervis and "like" it so they can have a chance to win a pair of diamond earrings!

Guest reactions. Whenever people ask us what our favorite thing is to photograph at weddings, we always say guest reactions. Aside from the obvious stuff (the couple looking at each other during their vows, sharing sweet moments together after the ceremony, etc.), we love to watch people laugh and cry and experience every possible happy emotion on the day of their friend or family member’s wedding. Guests are special, and often forgotten in wedding photos because the focus tends to be on the couple. But 20, 40, 60 years from now, the couple will be the ones looking at these photos, and they’ll get to see all the people who loved them on their big day. It’s part of why we tend to deliver more photos than the average photographer. We just want you to remember every moment and every person that was there!⠀

#nofilter ...but really, though. I love dog sitting here!! 😭😍😭 It’s so pretty!

The only ones who love this snow more than we do are our furry little children. @happily.eevee.after and @clouseautheinspector are hoping it never stops. 🥰🐶
#photosfromtheharty

It’s been quite a while since we’ve posted an iPhone photo, but this one is worth it. Our city at night is just so gorgeous. We love everything about it...(just don’t try to use the bathroom during the government shutdown). 🤦🏼‍♀️
#photosfromtheharty

Swipe right for that black & white! We loooooove shooting through flowers, and the colors in this one make us so happy... but also, that black and white is so romantic!! Which one is your favorite?!

This color palette never gets old. 🙌🏼 Love the elegance of the blush tones, and the bits of sparkle and lace throughout those bridesmaids dresses were just A+.⠀

My friends opened up a bar with coffee, juice, and cocktails (and grilled cheese, smoothie bowls, and some other delicious things)... and I gotta say- everything is freaking amazing. I was gonna post about how much I love their food but forgot to take a picture before I ate my smoothie bowl today (I was too excited)... 😬 Anyway, THEY’RE HIRING AND PAYING REALLY WELL SO IF ANYONE NEEDS A JOB IN CLARKSVILLE, HIT EM UP @trifectobar. And if you’re not looking for a job, but find yourself in the area, go get yourself a grilled cheese or a smoothie or something because OMG. 😍

It’s a baked apple, pumpkin fudge kind of day. Fall, we love you. 😍🍎🍁
#photosfromtheharty

When friends come to town, it’s a great excuse to be a tourist in your own city. ✌🏼The Old Town Apothecary museum is pretty sweet, and has some serious Harry Potter vibes. I’ll take some Dragon’s Blood please.

Woah- what an awesome idea for your wedding! Perhaps a good confetti send off?! Or maybe have your guests toss some as you walk down the aisle as a married couple?! We can only imagine how awesome this would look with fall leaves with all of the changing colors!

How’s this fantastic idea for environmentally friendly confetti!💚💚💚

This groom just passed the PA Bar exam! Not much else to say other than YAAAAAAS (and congrats, of course)!⠀

We had so much fun the other night at @thestgregoryhotel’s opening party! As a bonus, at the end of the night, we ran into a couple of the fabulous ladies from @paradisespringswinery. They were doing wine tastings, so obviously we had to say hello (😉), but we also got to bond over how great our clients are! An amazing couple had their reception at Paradise Springs over the summer, and we’re almost finished editing their photos! You’ll die when you see how gorgeous they are. For real. We can’t wait to share them!⠀
