“Sarah was the absolute best decision we made when it came to our wedding vendors. Not only is her photography beautiful, personal, fresh, and happy, but her knowledge about weddings in general was invaluable to us and really helped us with timing and flow -it was perfect! The day of, she was so calm, cool, and collected which made us relax and have a good time! There are a lot of people who claim to be photographers nowadays, but Sarah is truly an expert in her field, both professionally and artistically. Our wedding pictures beautifully capture they joy we felt that day and we couldn't ask for anything more than that. Seriously, if you are on the fence about a wedding (or anything) photographer, you've hit the jackpot with Sarah!”
