What clients have said about Sarah :

“Sarah was amazing to work with on our wedding day. Neither my husband or I like to get our picture taken, and she made us both feel incredibly comfortable during our “first look” and throughout the day/night. She showed us some of the pictures as she was taking them, and we were amazed by how great they looked (and that is without any editing)! I could hardly believe I was looking at myself- just looking at the pictures on the small camera screen, it looked like something from a magazine. She knows just how to find great spots/lighting, shoot from different angles, and make you feel comfortable. She was nonintrusive, letting us enjoy our wedding while still taking great shots.” ~ Carly


“Sarah Smith aka Photography Ninja Extraordinaire
Sarah has an eye not only for capturing beautiful images, but capturing the emotion behind each photo. She is lovely to work with, responsive, attentive and really listened to my husband and I about what we wanted and what we didn’t want (which was someone who was loud, intrusive and bossy).
My husband and I fondly call Sarah our Photographer Ninja because at every special moment during our wedding when I thought to myself “I hope someone is getting a picture of this!!”, I’d realize that Sarah was right there capturing every second–she is so stealthy and attentive she gets the shots without intruding on what is going on.
Sarah had great ideas for our pictures as a couple, as we didn’t really have any specific ideas ourselves, and we will truly treasure her photos of our wedding for the rest of our lives. The way her pricing packages are planned, made it so easy for us. We weren’t ‘nickeled and dimed’ over each image, weren’t restricted to where she would go or how many pictures she would take, and one of the most important things is that she also includes the copyright to the images in your package, so you actually own your own pictures!!
I highly recommend Sarah Smith Photography if you are looking for a truly professional, extremely skilled and easy to work with photographer for any special event. Thank you Sarah!” ~ Ursula


“Sarah was a pleasure to work with and very professional. She has such a creative and artistic eye and her approach to wedding photography is uniquely her own. After having our engagement session with Sarah, you can see she actually cares about her work and the bride and grooms wants with their pictures.” ~ AnneMarie


“Without a doubt I would recommend Sarah to any bride (and Groom!) She was entirely professional and easy to work with. She has a great natural artistic eye that I feel gave us photos different than the norm–which was exactly what we were looking for. She was also so great that I hardly noticed her the entire night. I couldn’t even tell you that she was at our ceremony until we got the pictures. She really made herself inconspicuous which was great because I’m not a “center-of-attention” kind of person and I was worried that I would be uncomfortable if I felt a camera was always in my face. Even during the more formal and posed shots she was very directive and helped to move my dress in ways that I wouldn’t have otherwise thought of so it looked the best. She also was great at coming up with great places to take our photos, instead of just putting us against one plain background and taking everything all together at once. She even spotted a small patch of field at the very end of the parking lot where our reception was and asked us out there around sunset, which made for some of the best pics of the night (see her blog for an example). Overall we love all 1200+(!) of our photos! We enjoyed working with her- she was fun, she was easy to get along with and her work is genuine and wonderful.” ~ Joanna


” have to say choosing Sarah as our photographer was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding, she was not only a professional but her final product was outstanding and stood part from the rest. With a combination of clean crisp images and artistic flare our photographs are like non-other I’ve seen.” ~ Karl
