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, unique adventures and outdoor sessions. Whether it's a mountaintop wedding, a surfing elopement, or a motorcycle couple session, I'm here to offer timeless memories that tell the story of your unique adventure.
Though Obsidian was born in Vermont, I recently relocated to 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.

A bit boho, a bit rebel, a lot of curiosity.

Elopement + Wedding
Obsidian offers full and half day sessions as well as destination elopement packages. I am committed to making your experience unique, fun, and probably a little silly. Most importantly, I aim to tell a true-to-life story, which is one of the most important investments of your adventure. When the day is done and the feet are sore, the images are going to be there for generations to come. Additionally, when I'm not photographing stories, I'm a therapist that's listening to them. I don't just want to snap pictures, I want to create photographs that hold the depth and truth of who you are, where you've been and how you two got here.
I work hard to pair myself with couples that have a similar aesthetic, vision and spirit for adventure. This ensures that at the end of the day, I did what I do best and my couples are happy with a collection of timeless and authentic moments.
When it comes to adventure elopements, I am there for the planning every step of the way. It's a team effort from the start, and by planning it together, we build a solid relationship of trust and comfort long before we embark.
Adventure Elopement + Wedding packages start at $2,500. For a full breakdown of pricing, click here.
