Don't think twice: HIRE SARAH NOW!
Of all the amazing vendors we had for the wedding, the best decision we made was to hire Sarah Shelley for our photographer. From her flexibility at our engagement photo shoot (arriving before dawn to shoot us in the midst of the chaos of the peak cherry blossom weekend) to her tireless, graceful, and agile work at our wedding, Sarah was beyond amazing.
The quality of her photos is top notch, and she is quick to get them back, which is a huge bonus! She blended in seamlessly at our wedding and found the most interesting and entertaining shots of our guests during the reception. Her eye is really impeccable. She captured the sweet quiet moments during the ceremony to the loud boisterous (alcohol-infused) fun shots on the dance floor without skipping a beat. And she allowed us to incorporate our beloved dog, Haans, into both the engagement shoot and actual wedding day and captured his spirit perfectly!
Not only do I highly recommend Sarah's work, but what makes her even more special is that she is a gem to work with. You want someone during this chaotic time who is pleasant, responsive, there without even being asked, and someone who can have fun all at the same time: Sarah is this person. I came away from this experience feeling like I'd also gained a new friend in the process. I truly can't say enough about her. Seriously, if she's available, do yourself a favor and hire her. Her rates are competitive, the quality of her work is beyond compare, and she's a genuinely nice and easy person to get along with on top of it all. One quick note for spastic brides (like I was): if she doesn't respond immediately, don't worry, she will. She's got two small kids and tends to work later in the evenings, so don't judge her if she doesn't respond to your text/call/email within five minutes. She will. And she's worth it.
Thank you, Sarah, for making our wedding memories so special!Sent on 12/05/2019

Family Photos Mini Session
Such a perfect package for a family with next to no free time and a very energetic toddler! Sarah got a ton of great shots which is difficult with an ever-moving toddler — she was friendly and made my son feel comfortable and happy. Cute poses and great angles...she picked a great location and the pictures turned out so great...I am in love with so many of them! Her turn around time was unreal and I have everything in time to make Christmas cards and even create gifts for relatives. Thank you, Sarah! We will be booking again next year for sure.Sent on 11/10/2019
We met Sarah about a year ago now... what a wonderful person to not only make friends with, but to work with! When we worked our first event together this summer, we were so excited. I was happy to add her work to our portfolio! Can't wait to do it again!
