Sally and Nick are amazing. After just a few minutes of speaking with Sally during our first meeting, my wife and I immediately knew she would be the perfect person to shoot out wedding. We went on to do engagement pictures with her and her husband Nick in addition to the wedding itself. I literally couldn't find a bad thing to say about them. They go far above and beyond the standard role of wedding photographers and pick up slack wherever they see it. On the day of the wedding, they not only produced incredible images beyond what I ever hoped for, but they stepped in in so many auxiliary ways, that we had people telling us how great Sally, our wedding planner was! We had a wedding planner who did a wonderful job, and those comments are not a slight against her, merely a testament to all the ways in which Sally and Nick stepped up during the day of the wedding to become invaluable assets to making sure everything ran smoothly while also being the incredible photographers they are. The images came back after just a couple of weeks and we were absolutely stunned. Sally has such an incredible eye for staging, editing, and capturing real, beautiful moments (while still managing to make you look great)! We've gone on to become friends with Sally and Nick, and try to hang out as much as we can. They are so kind and to their core, goodhearted people. They are easy to talk to, selfless, hard working, and fun to be around. All of these great character traits continue to shine through beyond the context of a vendor and a paying customer. If you are able to book Sally as your photographer, I personally guarantee you won't regret it!Sent on 09/27/2017

Absolutely incredible!!!Sent on 06/01/2016
My fiance and I are currently working with Sally for our wedding and engagement photos.
We just got our engagement album back and it is better than we could have possibly asked for.
Not only are the pictures stunning, but Sally is a delight! She confidently directs the shoot in a way that eliminates the awkwardness that can come with posing. Within 5 minutes of arriving at the location, all nervousness was gone.
I cannot reccomend Sally enough.

Like many of the other reviews, I really cannot say enough good things about Sally! 100% recommend!!! I found Sally on Instagram, a bit of a departure from my usual fact-checking way of doing things. But, I was instantly drawn into her style, and ability to capture couples at their best. Fast forward a year, and we just got our wedding pictures back. Like our engagement photos, they capture us in those hard-to-miss moments of laughter when we're relaxed and enjoying the moment, enjoying each other. It doesn't hurt that every single one is GORGEOUS. A couple more things that contributed to the "Duh" 5-star rating here... 1) Sally has always been uber responsive- she responds within less than 24 hours, often within less than half a day, which is great when there are lots of details to hash out. She goes above and beyond in answering questions, and making suggestions (such as locations, what to wear, etc.) 2) She & Nick seamlessly integrated themselves into our wedding on the day of- they're fun and personable and there was never the "hey what's that girl/guy doing sticking the camera in my face" moment. It felt like we were hanging out with friends 3) While I had a super detailed-day of timeline, I never once looked at it. Sally kept the entire bridal party on schedule, and got all of the shots we wanted without wearing everyone out. 4) Have I mentioned all of the beautiful photos? You get access to all of them, in an easy-to-use, easy to share gallery. Plus a photo album of your favorites. From start to finish, it has been our pleasure to work with Sally & Nick. So glad I listened to my gut, and reached out!Sent on 09/02/2016
Sally and her husband are an unstoppable photo duo! Their eye for detail and love of their craft makes for some of the most amazing photos I have ever seen. I truly enjoyed their upbeat personalities and willingness to assist at all times to ensure each shot was perfect. My clients couldn't be more excited and can not stop talking about Sally and her crew and of course the amazing magazine worth photos of their wedding. I would most certainly recommended Sally and her team for all your photography needs!
