photographer Sarah Delia
Obsidian strives to capture authentic moments with true to life emotion and timeless clarity.
Hi! I'm Sarah. I specialize in embracing natural elements and adventurous stories. Whether it's a mountaintop wedding in India, a surfing elopement in Costa Rica, or a motorcycle couple session in the Smokey Mountains, I'm here to offer timeless memories that tell the story of your unique adventure.
Obsidian was born in the Green Mountains of Vermont, but is currently based in Western North Carolina. Location doesn't matter though, because I travel worldwide to photograph elopements, intimate weddings and any other adventure possible. I've worked in India, Nepal, Italy, Ireland, Bali, Thailand and all over the U.S.
I'm happy to travel anywhere your story takes us.
"Sarah is the best! She’s responsive, communicative, super friendly, and she was amazing to work with. She’s super sweet. Her photos are incredible. I couldn’t recommend her enough. She’s exactly what we were looking for and she surpassed our expectations." - Chris & Zoey
"There are no words for this experience. We never could have imagined an elopement that felt so much like US. It was full of excitement instead of stress (with the exception of motorcycling through Balinese streets, but Sarah is a pro!) and we simply have the most awe-inspiring collection of images from the day. Everything from hiking in rice fields to lounging around our tree-house villa in the mountains - it's a story that is uniquely ours and makes everyone jealous! - Emi + Aidan
"Sarah and her team surpassed our expectations. She was creative in story telling and went beyond the usual wedding photos. Her bridal shoots are worth the extra time and they capture the emotion beautifully." Matt & Jessica
"Obsidian photo did an amazing job on our wedding day. Sarah was very creative in choosing scenes and working with the natural setting and lighting. She created one of kind shots that we look at in awe each day. She has a great personality and worked very well with our team. We highly recommend her for any photography needs you may have." - Sean & Alysa
"We were nervous about breaking from the normal wedding to do an adventure elopement, but we are so glad that we did. Sarah gave us not just a collection of photos, but an entire experience with a beautiful storybook to look back on. We had the best day hiking, exchanging vows at sunset and laughing our butts off. Sarah might be an incredible photographer, but she's humble and sweet and made us feel like decades-long friends. Thank you Sarah!" - Eric & Ashley
"Sarah was so professional, easy to work with and our pictures are perfect. I was worried about the rain on our wedding day, but the pictures came out unique and stunning. Thank you Sarah, for giving us a wonderful experience and beautiful pictures that will last us a life time. You made our day even more special and I can't thank you enough!" - Russell & Wendy
"We are totally blown away. Sarah did an absolutely beautiful job of capturing our wedding. I love that she was able to capture our goofy side and somehow make the photos look romantic. She's a miracle worker. She is hardworking and very talented!" - Tanja + Nick
"WOW. We are both in tears and we want to do the day all over again. I'm so glad that when we were thinking about a photographer, Mike brought Sarah's name up. The moments she captured are unspeakable but everything that we could feel. Thank you for the deep human expression that you captured!" - Kayla + Mike
