    Incredibly talented and helped with the day of timing!

    Sarah was absolutely incredible ! Not only is she a super talented photographer who got some mind blowing shots, but her attention to detail throughout the whole day and night was impecable! Her assistant Jeff was also great! They both helped to make us so comfortable in front of the camera and I truly don’t know what I would have done without Sarah. She was pretty much my day of coordinator and photographer all in one! She made sure that my husband and I were a priority the entire night, that we were hydrated and kept us on time! I cannot recommend her enough! I cannot wait to get our photos back !

    Amazing - highly recommend!

    Sarah was incredible to work with! She is a true professional in the industry and produces the most amazing photos. I knew from our very first conversation that she was someone we wanted to work with as she answered all my questions, guided me through the process/timeline and let me know what to expect. For our engagement shoot, she offered location ideas and sample photos she had taken at each place. She also met with us a year prior to our wedding to do a venue walk-through, so she could see everything in advance. And the day-of, she and her team were just incredible. She handled everything at our getting ready location so smoothly and effortlessly and likewise at the venue. Her clear directions and vision made for beautiful photos!! Sarah is so responsive and communicative, detail-oriented, and an expert at handling everything from large family photos to intimate ones, to the ones on the dance floor. There is nothing she can’t do and I would absolutely recommend her!

    Absolutely amazing

    I can’t recommend Sarah enough. Seriously. Above and beyond doesn’t even begin to cover it. Her photos are always outstanding, she’s fantastic to work with, very easy to talk to, very comfortable to be around. Super professional and such an amazing person.
    Our wedding had So many stressful moments - seriously, it was one thing after the other, but Sarah handled EVERYTHING. I mean EVERYTHING. She was absolutely incredible and I don’t know how I would’ve gotten through without her because honestly she saved the wedding. The venue kept screwing things up and I cried multiple times throughout night but she never left my side.
    My fingers got seriously burned on a hot iron an hour before ceremony- she was there to hold me while I sobbed, keep my hand under cool water, get me burn cream, bandages… then she did my make up for me. And it was Beautiful. She made me look how I always dreamed I’d look on my wedding day. I know nothing about make up and she just took over and dried my tears and made me look amazing. She helped me into my gown, and crinoline as well. She gave me a thousand hugs through out the night every time I started crying at another mess up. When the venue gave me food I was allergic to and hadn’t ordered, she fixed it and found something I Could eat. When the venue put on the Wrong lights (I specifically said only yellow lights because bright white gives me severe migraines) she fixed it. When I got a migraine from the wrong lights she was there with an ice pack, my medicine and another hug. When the venue broke our $300+ custom handmade made cake topper, she was running around trying to find out who did it (we still don’t know for sure and I’m fighting with venue about it - Padonia Park, just don’t hire them. Trust me)
    Sarah was absolutely incredible the entire night. She somehow managed to take care of me the entire time and still take beautiful photos of me and my husband and everything.
    You will not regret hiring her. I wish I could hire her to run my life for me. Haha.
    Truly, Sarah if you ever see this, Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Ps, she also did our Engagement photos and they turned out Amazing. I’m attaching some from wedding (Jurassic Park themed btw!) and engagement shoot.
