    We would totally recommend Sarah!

    Sarah photographed our May 2022 wedding in Asheville, NC. We appreciated Sarah鈥檚 photo-journalistic style, and were excited to learn that she鈥檚 laid back while still professional in her approach. We hired her for 4 hours to photograph the ceremony, a few family/couple portraits, and the first part of the reception. Sarah captured so many happy memories from our wedding, and all the silly faces our family and friends made along the way, which is exactly what we were hoping for. We would totally recommend her!

    Amazing Photographer!

    I had just a small elopement to a wedding chapel due to COVID concerns but I wanted some professional photos to relive the day. Sarah was easy to communicate with via email and she was easy to pay as she offered several methods to send her deposit. She was very flexible with payment methods and let you know clearly upfront what her costs were.
    She made sure to make contact shortly before the wedding to review what I was wanting and she even made a list of how it was to go with shot suggestions.
    She was familiar with the area and had a great eye to take us to spots that offered amazing views and that looked great in photographs. She has a great artistic talent in finding the beauty in the simplest of settings and brings it out in her pictures. She was also easy going and made it feel like we had known her from before the big day. She was game for any idea we had for a photo. Highly recommended and I am so glad we had her to take our photos!

    Amazing from beginning to end!

    Sarah was AMAZING. I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing she was.
    1. She was up for all of our ideas and we really loved talking to her while we figured out which of our ideas made sense and would look good. She told us about the trolley in Asheville and it was perfection! She mapped out an entire route for the several hours before the wedding and we went through downtown and through the River Arts district taking pictures with the wedding party. Plus, the trolley was super practical for taking pictures in multiple locations.
    2. She had her teacher voice on when she had to get all the family together or the bridal party, or anyone for that matter- which we needed desperately. She made all the pictures quick and painless for everyone.
    3. The pictures. They were so awesome! I literally cannot narrow them down right now.
    4. She always responded right away. It was so helpful because I would only have little bits of time to plan but I could rely on her to get back to me whenever.

    She was amazing. My maid of honor still talks about how awesome she is.

    What can I say about Sadie (Sarah)? She is just the best! I planned my wedding in Asheville from Florida so I didn鈥檛 actually meet her until a couple of hours before my wedding. From the very first email, I knew that I had made the right decision. Her attention to detail and commitment to capturing every beautiful moment of our day was apparent from the very beginning. And she is delightful! We now consider her not just a friend, but family. We LOVED hanging out with her on our wedding day. We LOVED that she managed to be everywhere all the time. I LOVED that she was a solid voice of reason to keep me calm when I was freaking out about being late to my own wedding. She knew the best places around the downtown Asheville area to get us some really beautiful shots and I absolutely can鈥檛 wait to see them.

    You get one shot (pun intended) at getting beautiful wedding photos. I haven鈥檛 even seen mine yet and I know that they will be utter perfection. My husband and I paid for our own wedding and had to stick to a very strict budget, but agreed to not put a price on two things: an open bar and an amazing photographer. Her prices were incredibly reasonable and she even stayed past our designated hours because the party was still going strong. She went above and beyond in every possible way and we are so thankful for her. We love you, Sadie! Welcome to our family!

    My husband Jeff and I would highly recommend Sarah Whitmeyer as a photographer. Sarah was great to work with both before and after our wedding. She made sure she delivered all of our requested shots, and went above and beyond to capture our wedding. Looking at the photos was like reliving our wedding, and even provided memories that we may have missed during the whirlwind day. We will treasure our photos forever.

    Sarah did a wonderful job at our wedding. There was a thunderstorm and she was calm and collected throughout the entire process (which helped keep me calm and collected!). She was kind and upbeat and our guests frequently told us how much they enjoyed having her as a part of the wedding. She worked so hard on the day and was also very easy to communicate with before the day. I would highly recommend her!

    On my wedding day it rained, I got stung by bees, and all other hilarious and unexpected things happened and Sarah rolled with the punches and made me feel beautiful and just perfect. Working with Sarah was truly a dream. She was professional, calm, supportive, and put everyone around her at ease. I would recommend her and her team without reservation.

    Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the whole process! The professionalism, comfort, and fun she brought to our wedding day was perfect. Our families can be divas sometimes, but Sarah kept them on schedule while capturing all of our precious moments that day. She went above and beyond Stu and I's expectations! The open communication throughout the planning really put me at ease. I felt relaxed and confident during our photo shoot time thanks to Sarah - she even gave us a quick sneak peak of our pic while we were shooting, and AMAZING! Sarah is a true professional and any couple would be lucky to have her be a part of their big day!

    Sarah is everything positive that has been said about her on this site - to include her assistant. If you can't work with them you may wish to seek counseling. J Poland, Father of the Bride!

    To set the stage, I was a groom that was dreading being ordered around and having his picture taken all day. I can't express how much my fear didn't match up with the realities of the day. Sarah and her assistant Rachael were amazing. They put me at such ease and made it so I could feel normal and natural taking photos with my beautiful bride and our wedding party. They setup an amazing reveal / first look for us in a picturesque setting that made it incredibly special and intimate. They captured every part of the day beautifully, from the major moments of the ceremony to the small moments I shared with my now wife. I can't recommend Sarah enough, she certainly made our wedding a much more enjoyable experience and provided us with beautiful memories for a lifetime.
