    Wonderful Photographer and person

    I knew before I got engaged that I wanted Sara to do my engagement and wedding photos, based off the work I had seen. She was very responsive in setting up a meeting to discuss booking and even accommodated our wedding date change after I couldn't find a venue. She survived not only negative degree temperatures and snow for our engagement session, but a down pour of rain on our wedding day and ventured out in the rain after our ceremony so we could get the one photo I really wanted. She did this all with a smile on her face and making my husband and bridal party laugh. She was thrilled that we included our fur baby in our engagement session, especially when our dog didn't cooperate for posed pictures. Sara managed to capture the energy of our dog while still professionally capturing my husband and I. I would definitely recommend Sara to anyone!

    Oh Kasey, I just adore you & Collyn!! You seriously have been the best clients to work with! From your engagement session that was literally in a blizzard, to your very rainy wedding day, you never stressed out - not once! You focused on each other and the task at hand which was getting married. And now you have beautiful photos to treasure forever! Thanks for being rockstar clients with the kindest hearts & the best attitudes!!

    Quality, Fun, Professional

    We came across Sara last minute as we were trying to continue our original wedding date as an elopement after postponing our out of state wedding due to COVID. She was so easy to work with, flexible, and provided us with amazing service at the last minute. Our pictures are absolutely beautiful and so much more than we could have hoped for in general, let alone with everything that was happening. If our postponed big celebration was going to be in Montana, we would undoubtedly use her again, and will be using her for future family photo needs.

    Incredible, Amazing, Classy

    When it came to my wedding, I want the best quality photos. In order to have the best quality, I knew I needed the someone great. After research, I found Sara who exceeded all my thoughts. I am not the photo type, however, the photos are incredibly beautiful and are even hanging in my house. (I swore I wouldn’t hang photos either.)

    She is talented and classy, professional but fun. She is by far the best photographer in Billings and I look forward to hiring her for any future events.

    So Fun and Worth Every Penny!!!

    I am so glad my husband and I chose Sara as our photographer. She was so helpful, cheery, and professional. I’m not one to spend lots of time thinking about details of how I want every photo to turn out; I gave Sara a few things I wanted for sure in my photos and she took off from there. Her creativity is stellar and took ALOT of stress off my plate! I’m so grateful for her passion for photography and making sure to capture those special moments. We recently got our album back and it is so exciting to see all the amazing photos that were captured on our special day 😊
    I would also recommend using her husband, Pat Nagel for videography. He is so creative as well! A wedding video is worth the investment!
    Thanks again, Sara and Pat 😊

    Sara managed to capture our big day perfectly! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Our pictures turned out beautiful, and Sara is so easy to work with!

    Best Decision We Made

    Sara exceeded our expectations for engagement and wedding photos. During our engagement shoot, she let my parents come by to sneak in a few family pictures since we have not had any done since I was in 6th grade...all free of charge! She made everything so easy for us. She goes above and beyond for her clients. At our wedding, she even stayed later than planned to help capture our Sparkler Send-Off! We could not have asked for a better photographer to work with through some of the biggest moments of our lives!

    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!

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.

    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!
