A Pageant Professional.
I have taken thousands of pageant event photos and portraits.
Since 2010, I have been capturing the range of emotions on stage, as well as behind the scenes, at pageants in Minnesota and beyond. From smiles to sparkles, I have seen it all.
As an official press photographer at Miss America pageants for five years, I learned quickly where to be so I could get the most exciting shots.
From 2012-16, I was the official photographer for the Miss Minnesota organization, covering not only pageants but also capturing the participants at various public events.
I offer a range of photography services for contestants, from headshots to branding imagery to full-length gown portraits.
Sarah’s gorgeous images are the face of our organization. She has an uncanny ability to bring out our title holders personalities in the most unique ways and her portraits keep them looking naturally beautiful. Her event photography, full of life and emotion, is also exceptional and captures each contestant’s unique experience throughout pageant week. This is no small feat considering our pageant is comprised of nonstop activity in a variety of settings for seven days. Sarah is a gifted professional who knows her craft. She is real, she is confident, she is humble in her practice; Sarah is simply amazing.

Sarah has the unique ability to capture moments that tell stories. I look back at my photos from Miss Minnesota to find myself reliving my experience again. Most importantly, she uses her understanding of each young woman to highlight their distinctive qualities and bring out their best in photos.

When I talk about my Miss Minnesota experience I often find myself talking about you, the official photographer, and so I really needed to let you know just hos much you impacted my experience then and now. Because of the time you spent with us during competition week I was able to enjoy the experience without worrying about preserving my memories. The countless hours you spent editing resulted in so many beautiful photos that have brought so much joy. I so appreciate how affordable you made these treasures. Your positive spirit and fun attitude always made for a great laugh and kept what might have been a very competitive atmosphere relaxed. Thank you for all you do and just being you.

I have been a part of the modeling industry for several years, and I've had the opportunity to work with many talented photographers. Sarah was certainly one of my favorites to work with! She really made an effort to work with me during the shoot to ensure I was happy with my photos. My headshot for the Miss Minnesota competition turned out beautifully. Sarah is so talented and so fun to work with! I highly recommend her!

We could not have asked for more in capturing this most important event in our daughter’s life. Sarah knew what to do and how to get the best results.

Sarah never failed to make me look and feel like a princess. She makes every picture unique and special to her clients. My year as Miss Minnesota’s Outstanding Teen wouldn’t have been what it was without the gorgeous pictures done by Sarah Morreim Photography and the endless hours of laughter in our time!
Corrina Swiggum, Miss Minnesota’s Outstanding 2013
With every major event that happens in your life, you want to ensure that the memories are captured long after the experience has passed. When I was competing for Miss Minnesota, I wanted each picture to reflect exactly what I was thinking, feeling, and living. Sarah not only met that desire, but exceeded my expectations. She caught the joys of every major moment perfectly, and made me look Miss Minnesota picturesque - even before I was crowned! The very moment I was crowned brought pictures that beautifully showed my joy and genuine disbelief. Every emotion was conveyed perfectly through Sarah's photography. It's like she was living it with me. The moments she captured will last with me long after that incredible year!
