Photos from the Harty, a team of lifestyle, wedding, and event photographers, was founded by Sara (Hartenstine) Alepin in 2005 after she graduated with a BA in Art Studio & Education and began working on her MFA in Photography & Digital Imaging. After years of working together, Katie Lingan officially joined the team as lead photographer in 2013.

Over the years, we've learned a lot from capturing - and being a part of - all types of special moments, especially weddings.  One thing that has really stuck with us: it's not only important that you love our images - you must also love your photographer. You will spend more time with us on your wedding day than anyone else. So, it's important that you enjoy being around us on your big day!

So, keep reading to get to know us better.  If you like what you read and like what you see, please reach out to us.  We look forward to meeting you!

xo, Sara + Katie
