    Could not have asked for better!

    Could not have had our special day without Sara and her crew! From the engagement session to the reception, all of her results were amazing. Could not thank her enough for going the extra mile to give us results that will last a lifetime.

    Incredible!

    Sara and her team were absolutely amazing. She not only made me feel beautiful (being 20 weeks pregnant) she listened to my requests and made taking pictures so much fun! I would hire her again in a heartbeat. She's incredible and her photography is creative and very high-quality.

    Fun, Professional, and Amazing Results

    Sara is wonderful to work with, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! I had been part of a wedding party for a wedding which she was working at, and found her to be easy and enjoyable to work with, with amazing end product results. So I hunted her out for my own wedding a few years later, and she was everything I could have wanted in a photographer! She’s really great at making everyone feel relaxed and enjoy the photograph experience, is a fun person to have be a part of your big wedding day, and captures beautiful photographs.
    The collection of photos I received from her had great posed photos (all those family and wedding party photos everyone wants) and charming candid photos that captured the fun and personality of my husband and myself and everyone who was there that day. I couldn’t be happier.

    Sara makes every process from beginning to end simple.

    First off, I'm someone that isn't good at attention brought on myself and knowing full-well how nervous I was going into the photo session, Sara immediately was able to calm me down. Her combined efforts of kind and calming words, and her knowledge of just what to ask of us captured moments between my fiancee and I that are of true essence, what makes us, us. I was worried how the photos were going to turn out. Luckily, I didn't have to wait long! When I saw them, for the first time ever was I ever so grateful that we had professional photography done of us, especially for our engagement of our marriage. Sara did an amazing job at capturing us, and we will always have these moments of time saved for years to come. PS. We received several different photos, expressing emotions across the spectrum in under 15 minutes before the snow began coming down on us! It was a neat experience!

    You are so sweet Blake! Trust me, I know how nerve-racking it can be to have your photo taken, especially romantic engagement photos! But I had a feeling that I could get you two to open-up and have fun with it. You have the best smile!! Thank you for having faith in my talent and I love how many photos we got in that short amount of time. I'm happy I could capture this time in your lives!! Best of luck to you at your wedding!

    Better than we could’ve ever imagine

    Sara exceeded every expectation we had for both our engagement and wedding photos. Sara is super easy to work with and so much fun to be around. Her photos captured our special moments perfectly. It was truly a joy having her as our photographer and all of our wedding guests raved about her kindness, professionalism and attention to detail. Our wedding photos are timeless and a real representation of us, not overwhelmed with filters or shadows. We feel so lucky to have had such a talented and genuine photographer to capture our big day.

    Sarah G. (8/18/18)

    I am SO happy I chose Sara to photograph my wedding! She was beyond fun to work with and she made pictures fun for my husband and I’s entire wedding party. Sara and her assistant photographer were both very professional and helped make everything go smooth. She even made a schedule of pictures to be taken on our special day, which helped make everything go as planned. She captured every moment of our day and that could not have been an easy task! If I had to do my wedding again, I would choose Sara as my photographer over and over. She was absolutely wonderful!

    Beyond Exceptional Photography and Professionalism

    What a wonderful experience with an amazing photography team!!! My wife and I were told that one item you don't want to slack on is a good photographer and selecting Sara Nagel Photography was the best thing we could have done! Sara offered us two photographers at our wedding and her husband was there as well to take videography. Five hundred photos and a full length, ten minute montage of our wedding later, we feel it was beyond money well spent to have these items that will last a lifetime and beyond! I highly recommend SNP for any wedding and/or event!

    Beautiful Photos in the Mountains!

    Sara was an amazing photographer! Our Ceremony was in the middle of nowhere (without cell reception!) and she was more than happy to drive over 2 hours to our venue. She had the best ideas for poses and group shots, but still wanted our feedback and let us try out our own pose ideas. We also had a second shooter, Danielle, who worked with Sara and the both of them were truly the dream team! It was like they knew exactly what the other was thinking and got the best shots. Our number one priority was to have good quality photos for years to come. We got that from Sara.

    Our photos turned out wonderfully and we are very satisfied customers. We moved across the country, but Sara STILL sent us our copies and a flash drive even though we moved so far away.

    We cannot Thank Sara and her team enough!
    BOOK HER!!!!!!!

    Trust me Molly, your wedding was definitely worth the drive!! I'm obsessed with all the images we took out at East Rosebud Lake and it was cool to have a completely different look at DanWalt Gardens for your reception. What a fun-filled day! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me capture it all!

    Couldn’t Imagine

    J and I can not imagine having any other photographer. From dealing with the mass chaos of our large families and wedding party to the random things we threw at her along the way, she perfectly documented our big day. These photos are something we will treasure forever and I know many of our family and friends will too! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts! 💕

    Sara is amazing. Of all of the decisions and details that went into our wedding, my husband had only one request—to hire an exceptional photographer to capture our day. After looking through many photographer’s portfolios, we found Sara and knew we found just what we had been looking for. We could tell from our first meeting with Sara that she was organized, professional, and fun. The day of our wedding, Sara and her second shooter helped keep our wedding party and family feel comfortable and relaxed, while keeping us on schedule. When we received our photos, we were blown away by how beautifully she captured every detail of our day. Sara was one the best decisions we made for our wedding. Not only is she an incredibly talented photographer, but she is also an genuinely kind person, and I look forward to working with her again.

    Sara and her team were amazing. They were professional and fun to work with. My husband and I are so thankful we hired this team becuase they truly helped everything run so smoothly the day of the wedding. We did not quite know what we were doing and Sara had a timeline to help keep us on track and we still had so much fun goofing off with her and her team while we were all taking photos. Oh, and the photos, oh my god, they are amazing!!!! I got a batch of them yesterday and I just cannot express enough how great Sara and her team are. I would recommend her to anyone!!!

    Loved, loved, looooved working with Sara! Sara did our engagement and wedding photos and working with her each time was absolutely wonderful! She has such a beautiful, wonderful and enjoyable personality, it's almost impossible to not smile when you're with her :) Both my husband and I were nervous when we were going to our engagement photo shoot, but with her wonderful personality and adorable humor, within the first 20 minutes of working with Sara, we were both totally at ease and found that we were really enjoying our photo session. She has such passion for what she does, it was no surprise that our engagement photos turned out absolutely perfect. I haven't even seen all of our wedding photos yet, but I have no doubt that they will look fantastic! I also want to give a shout out to her 2nd photographer, Danielle! Danielle worked with all the groomsmen at our wedding and I know that they were probably a hand full, but she did an awesome job! With both of them working with us on our wedding day, I know that they captured so many wonderful moments! I will definitely recommend Sara to anyone who's looking for a professional, charismatic, talented, wonderful photographer! And I know that I will definitely call up Sara again in the future for any other photo opportunities that may come our way! Sara, you are THE best, thank you!

    LOVED working with Sara and her team. My husband and I hired Sara for engagement and wedding photos and needless to say we were SO HAPPY with that decision! My husband is not typically a huge fan of photos, but Sara managed to bring out a side of him to where HE was the one telling me how to smile in our photos! Every picture surpassed our expectation.

    LOL! Tanner could be a professional model now that he's done 2 photo sessions with me, but don't let his head get too big because having you by his side made him look pretty darn good! You guys are such a beautiful couple inside and out. I can't tell you how much it meant for me to photograph your special day. I've never been so emotional at a wedding before, but the tears were flowing from everyone, so I didn't feel like I needed to hold back. The love that you & Tanner have for each other & for your family was so evident that day and it was such a memorable event to be a part of. Thanks again for choosing me to be your photographer!

    Sara and her team and simply amazing! They all go above and beyond to make you happy on your special day. They are so easy to work with and keep you smiling and laughing the whole time. Sara has done many photos for me (family, engagement, and wedding) and I will continue to go to her for my future photography needs!

    Thank you Jenna! I knew that your wedding would be a blast because you & Tom always know how to keep each other laughing. Your family & friends were such a joy to be around and we had so much fun watching you guys dance at the reception. Good times & great memories!!
