What was your favorite wedding photo?
My favorite picture is where my husband and I are dancing alone, and he is spinning me around. Sarah captured just the right second where he is standing behind me and we are in the middle of the spin. I love that picture -- perfect timing, perfect quality, and we both look so happy!
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?
Sarah was able to take our entire day and write a story about every event with each picture she took. She was there to discuss what we wanted only when needed and faded into the background while we were enjoying ourselves. She was there, writing our story with her pictures and we didn't even notice that she was doing it. She had a talent for posing us for the most wonderful shots, as well as capturing those precious moments we always want to remember.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?
We ordered her platinum package, which included 9 hours of her time, wedding album, 2 parent albums, DVD, slideshow movie, $250 in ala carte pictures, and over 500 4x6 prints. An engagement session was included, however, we opted to add $100 to our ala carte pictures instead.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?
Sarah had a wonderful friendliness and warm personality, which made all of us feel comfortable around her. She was engaging and enthusiastic, which helped us work with her to create the amazing pictures. Everyone I've shown the pictures to simply rave about her work and I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a professional, talented and friendly photographer.
