Props can help to show your personality and record the types of activities you are involved in. Be sure to bring some of your own props to your portrait session. Feel free to call us for extra tips but here are some ideas:
Your wedding will probably be the most important and most memorable day of your life. After you've eaten the food, toasted with the drinks, danced to the band or DJ, and have enjoyed this day you spent so much time and energy planning for, the onlything you'll have left to show for it will be your wedding dress, and your pictures! Wouldn't you want to make sure that you have photos that can help you bring back all of the beautiful memories of your special day and let you see those moments that you may have missed because you were too busy having fun and enjoying your day?
A professional photographer's job is to concentrate on capturing your day in the best way possible so that you'll be able to relive it every time you look at your pictures. In the end when all is said and done there is a difference between a professional and and amateur photographer, and since this day only happens once and you have invested so much into making it special, Pictures are one thing that is truly worth the investment.
Most weddings take place between May and August and/or on a Saturday so the timing of booking a wedding photographer is very important in your wedding-planning process. If your wedding will be during the summer months, during a holiday, or on another popular date, you may want to consider booking your photographer as early as 12 to 18 months ahead of time. If photography is very important to you(and we hope it is), you will also want to book as early as possible even if your date does not fall into one of those busy periods. In any event, it's in your best interest to have your wedding photographer booked at least 10 months in advance.
That's entirely up to you. We want our coverage of your day to reflect your needs so we can start from when you are at home getting dressed and end when your reception is over or just cover the wedding and ceremony. I'll be happy to discuss this with you when we are going over the details of your wedding.
We never put a limit on the number of photos we take. We’ll take as many photos as are needed to capture your special day in the best way. For some weddings that may be 300 pictures and for others it may be 450-800. We never charge you based on how many photos we take and this policy holds for all of our collections.
Yes, we carry at least three high end professional cameras with us and enough backup equipment so that in case something unforeseen happens, it will not interrupt our ability to capture your special day in any way.
Yes they can. Depending on seasonal demand allow 2-4 weeks for us to have your wedding showcased online. Don’t forget, we have your whole day to go through.
Well first let me tell you that our job is far from over after your special day, it is in our hands to now create for you not just a book with pictures but a story for you to be able and relive your day over and over. Here is a glimpse of what we do... after your wedding we upload all images to the computer, and a set to an external drive for a backup, then we edit through all images to prepare for online gallery. Now we carefully go through the images to create a story by page for you. One album page can take about one hour to create, this includes touch ups and design. So if you have a 50 pg. album it could take 50-60 solid hours of design. (this could be because I am a perfectionist also) Photographs by Sarah is a full Studio we specialize in many other portrait needs. With all this being said depending on sessional demand PLEASE allow up to 12 months for all albums to be fulfilled. Yes it is long but I PROMISE it will be worth it! And thank you for your patience in advance.
No, not at all. As soon as your pictures are posted online you can pick your DVD up within 2 weeks after. You can also order your prints whenever you are ready.
Your package balance must be paid for 1 week before your wedding. As for add on’s and upgrades, we can take care of that when we meet after your wedding to finalize everything.
