I am Sarai Minard! (Pronounced like Sarah Meh-nard)
Since 2010, I have owned and operated Sarai Minard Photography providing high quality images and professional editing. I am absolutely blessed to be able to use my love of photography to create memories for others to cherish for a eternity.
I have the BEST little family. My husband and I have been married for 9 years! We have two OUTSTANDING boys (5 and 6 years old.) They are truly creative, and so much fun. Our oldest wants to be a storm chaser when he grows up, and our youngest wants to be an astronaut! My husband is so supportive, loving, and kind. You could say that I feel very lucky and blessed.
I enjoy early morning coffee, birdwatching, nature, photography, spending time with my family, video games, crafting, reading, writing, and crafting/creating.
I believe in sharing moments with my clients to yield a personalized experience with authentic smiles and laughter throughout your entire session or event. Inspiration comes from real life, and the images I create are as unique as the clients I create them with.
While focusing on engagement and wedding photography right here in the Springfield, MO and surrounding areas, my company strives to remain dedicated to growing families and high school seniors. I have many services, and I would love the opportunity to discuss your needs! Contact me!

"Sarai was more than just a photographer at our wedding. She not only kept helping me with my hair or fixing my make up but she nearly felt like family. At one point I remember being on the ground to get the shots she wanted at my wedding. Our pictures turned out amazing! I had so many people ask me who she was so they could use her for the future. I can’t give her enough praise for how well she did."
