Above and Beyond
Alright, I got engaged during the Corona Pandemic and had a lot of free time on my hands to start planning my wedding. The most important things to me are the venue and photographer, you want a great place and memories captured beautifully. My father was just as excited and found Sarah Nelson on the Wedding Wire. We creeped through her pictures from a wedding close to our venue and fell in love with how she captured the day. There were candids and staged photos and both were amazing.
I reached out to Sarah and she got back to me within minutes! We planned a phone call later that day so she could get a vibe of what I was looking for. Like I said, venue and photographer were at the top, I had certain needs that I wanted for pictures and I was hoping we could come up with my own personal package.
Needless to say, we were on the phone for over an hour! Sarah is SO bubbly and easy to work with, NEVER did I feel awkward about asking for what I wanted. My dreams fit in with the 'whole shebang' package and we started on the next process, "The Engagement Photoshoot."
I love my fiancé, he is wonderful in many ways, but I was DREADING this photoshoot. He was not about posing and kissing especially in nice clothes. He is a 'jeans and cut off' kinda guy. I knew he was going to be miserable. Sarah arrived at our photoshoot location and was AMAZING! Her personality is ABOVE and BEYOND! She is talkative and very easy going. We had music playing and cold beers in our hands the whole time to loosen up. She staged us in some shots and got to know us in person before our big day, which made my fiancé EXTREMELY comfortable! It also put me at ease, to know who was showing up the day of our wedding and what she was like!
If you are looking for a RELIABLE, PERSONABLE photographer, Sarah Nelson is your gal! The way she captures the moment and backgrounds is absolutely stunning. She focuses on certain points and it makes the pictures perfect. Her editing time is awesome! i had a sneak peek within two days (16 photos) and my whole album digitally in less than two weeks.
I am so pleased with my engagement photos that I cannot wait to get married and have her capture my special day. I highly recommend her "Whole Shebang" package as it is definitely worth every single cent! You will not regret hiring Sarah Nelson.Sent on 04/28/2020

The most amazing Photographer and Human!!!
Sarah went above and beyond for our wedding from start to finish! She was incredibly organized and always knew the best shots to take based on the scenery and, at times, spotty weather conditions. She was incredibly creative and patient (both with me and the weather), which has only shown through in the most lasting way...our gorgeous wedding photos! I could not recommend her enough for her photographer skills, but also the fact that she is just a very kind person. On a day that is so important, it is necessary to not have only a great photographer but an awesome human being! If you're getting married on Hilton Head Island, she is the photographer to call for natural and stunning photos!Sent on 07/24/2020

She worked so well with me before the actual proposal in order to be a surprise, and went beyond our expectations afterwords in order to create the most stunning pictures of two of us! If you want dedicated, highly creative, and compassionate photographer then Sarah is the one! You won't regret it!Sent on 11/07/2019
