It was a joy working with Sarah. She has this talent of making her subjects comfortable in front of the lens. She has a photojournalistic approach, which is kind of like what I prefer. Our photos looked candid, genuine and not too stiff. Overall, I would definitely recommend Sarah to my friends.

Photography has always been important to me. I take lots of pictures, all the time, and I love peeping at others'. I'm rather proud of my Instagram. I rely heavily on photographs to chronicle my experiences through life. So when my husband and I began planning our wedding, I knew immediately that finding the right photographer was my top priority. We first met Sarah at her studio/office in the Flatiron. Her glowing reviews and her body of work instilled confidence that she was the right choice to capture our story (her words, not mine), but she won us over with kindness and professionalism in person. Sarah betrays a genuine, palpable love of her craft, a nice quality in a wedding photographer. She also inspired confidence in us by following a process that's clearly been honed to precision over her considerable experience. She's got her timeline boiled down to a science so that she may focus on making the art. Day of, it felt like a friend was casually snapping photos while my bridesmaids and I were getting ready. My husband was equally at ease with her colleague Ryan, who captured some beautiful shots of my husband and his brother getting ready in the hotel. The morning after our wedding, Sarah posted a series of photos to her Facebook page. We LOVED waking up the next morning to scroll through about 30 BEAUTIFUL photographs that Sarah and Ryan had taken the night before. It was the perfect little preview. Not long after, Sarah wrote a lovely blog post about her experience photographing our wedding. When we received the (thousand+) photographs, we felt as if we were reliving every moment (even moments we weren’t a part of!). Our wedding photographs are simply stunning and are so moving and hilarious. I don’t know how Sarah does it, but she DOES IT. And please do yourself a favor and hire her for your wedding. It will be one of the best decisions of your life because, in a way, she is giving the gift of memory.

The single most mportant person at my wedding (other than my husband)
I had the wedding of my dreams and Sarah had EVERYTHING to do with it. She was the single BEST decision I made for my wedding day. Since it was my first time even being in a wedding, planning everything on my own would not have been possible without a partner like her. She is COMPREHENSIVE in her homework and was the one who created the agenda (down to the half hour)for the day. Without her, I would not have been able to plan the timing of my other vendors (hair, makeup, videography). She served as a coordinator in a way by creating a timeline and then making sure we adhered to it , even when we were running late.
I did not worry about a thing the entire day, although I'm typically an anxious mess, because of her. That peace of mind is worth it's weight in gold.
As for the actual pictures, her work speaks for itself. She is a TRUE ARTIST. She finds the perfect light, your perfect angle, and she puts you at ease. I have never felt as beautiful as she makes me appear. If you are more involved in leading your photos, she will follow your lead but for everyone else, you can rely on her to create perfect portraits and know your venues better than you will.
Overall a joy and pleasure to work with as she gave me the most amazing art to remind me of my most beautiful day.
Sarah is an amazing wedding photographer and and absolute pleasure to work with! I handled day-of wedding coordination for a bride that hired Sarah. Sarah was professional, upbeat and organized - she shared a detailed photography timeline with our bride, including helpful instructions about how to capture special moments throughout their "getting ready" process. I look forward to working with Sarah again!
I have had the extreme pleasure of working with Sarah Tew numerous times. Her approach is natural, easy, discreet. Her photos are stunning! She is a sheer pleasure to work with! Carol Moore, Owner of A Starry Night Music
We work with so many photographers all over the country and I have no hesitation saying that Sarah's pictures always capture the vibe and unique qualities of every wedding that we're lucky enough to do with her. She has even made us look decent in her shots, which is no small feat. Can't recommend Sarah enough!
