    Stupendous

    Are you in the market for a wedding photographer? Well, Sara Nagel is your gal. From the first meeting through getting our images Sara was professional, helpful, and easy to work with. Sara made taking photos fun and stress-free. Not only is she amazing when it comes to helping get the perfect images, but she also helped with the day of coordinating to make sure everything ran smoothly and on time. I was so worried that we would not have enough time for all the photos we wanted, but somehow with Sara’s direction, and professionalism we got them all done. If you are looking for a wedding photographer who is easy to work with, will get the best pictures, and is affordable I highly recommend Sara Nagel Photographer. While you are scooping up Sara to do your photos, also consider having her husband, Pat do your videographer. These two are sure to produce images of your big day, that help you constantly feel like you are reliving that moment.

    Couldn't Ask for a Better Wedding Photographer

    We are officially life long customers. My husband hates taking pictures, but he had the best time taking them with Sara for our engagement and wedding pictures. She was highly professional, while being so sweet and wonderful, and was extremely flexible with all the craziness that came from planning our wedding in the middle of COVID. The cherry on top is that her pictures and video are absolutely amazing.
    Your wedding photographer is one of the most important expenses of your wedding, and you can't do better than Sara!

My team & I felt like a part of your family during the day, so we really appreciate how accommodating you guys were. Thanks for making our job easy! Come back to Montana anytime for some more photos!! :)

    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!!

    Sara and her team are incredible! I seriously cannot recommend them enough!

    Everything about them is fabulous, perfect, detailed, thorough. They made my wedding day so special! Sara and her team go above and beyond in every area of their business, they are phenomenal! I could go on forever about how incredible my experience was. Sara was so accommodating and understanding as I was planning my wedding during Covid last year so everything was up in the air. Sara communicates wonderfully and quickly and was an absolute dream to work with! The wedding day she had everything planned out and so it ran so smoothly. I had her husband do our wedding video and oh my gosh is it beautiful. They took such special and unique photos/video clips, I am thrilled that I hired Sara and am forever grateful for their breathtaking work! 10/10 recommend!!!

    The best in the business!

    5 stars doesn't begin to explain how amazing Sara and her team is! She is so much more than just a photographer! Aside from getting some of the best pictures I've ever seen, she keeps the day fun and efficient! She kept my whole wedding day organized and it didn't feel like I spent the entire time taking pictures and she treats you like family. I will continue to use Sara for any photography that my family and I will need in the future!

    Our Forever Photographer

    If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, Sara Nagel is your gal. Not only does she take amazing pictures, she is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful, especially in the middle of a pandemic. Throughout the entire process, Sara was extremely patient, understanding, and supportive. I am extremely organized and I appreciate how organized Sara is as well. Not only are you hiring a wedding photographer, but you are also hiring a part-time wedding planner. Also, my husband is not extremely comfortable in front of people, especially posing and such, but Sara is so easy to be around and made him feel very comfortable. Ultimately, if you’re looking for someone to capture your big day, I highly recommend Sara Nagel Photography.

I love you guys and can't wait for your anniversary celebration next year!!!

    She is simply the best!

    Sara is simply AMAZING! Choosing someone to capture some of the most important and special moments is so crucial and I can say choosing Sara was the best choice we made! Sara is the sweetest gal who is timely and truly cares about your day! We had the craziness of COVID in the middle of our wedding and planning and Sara was the one thing I did not have to stress about! Sara has some sort of magic to get even the toughest of clients to smile and get good pictures! (My husband hates photos). Sara is the kind of photographer that you keep returning to and you become friends with! She is seriously so talented! Sara puts her whole heart into her work and it shows! She felt like having another family member at our wedding and we loved every second of it! Choose Sara! You will NOT be disappointed!
    Thank you thank you Sara! We loved getting to know you and the pictures you gave us were more than I could have imagined! Thank you for wearing down Aaron to get those shots I will always love! 😊💕

    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.

    Amazing! The best!

    It's hard to put into words the experience we had with Sara for our Austin wedding because it was simply perfect. She is so kind, entertaining, and moves quickly to get pictures accomplished while having fun - it was as if she was a part of our party!!! I described to her what I was looking for and she nailed it. I honestly can tell you that you will NOT regret this decision and photos/video are such a important part of your forever keepsake! Would recommend her to anyone!

    Sara goes above and beyond for her clients!

    Sara Nagel is the best in the biz. Not only are her photos beautiful and timeless, but she is truly a joy to work with. She is kind, fun, and makes the day run so smoothly. She made SO many generous accommodations to ensure we had the footage we wanted despite COVID's influence over our initial plans. I still can't believe how lucky we were to have Sara playing this role for us throughout the wedding process. I cannot recommend her enough!

    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 😊

    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!

    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!
