Sarah was a delight to work with. Our maternity session was relaxed and so much fun. Not only was it a great experience, but we have many beautiful pictures to document this special time in our life. Sarah is extremely professional, creative and talented. We are very much looking forward to our newborn session soon! (and are definitely keeping Sarah in mind for future portraits) - Katrina, Columbia, SC
Sarah was fantastic. She was warm and professional from start to finish. She did an amazing job of capturing all of the special moments of our day, from the official group photos to the candid photos during the reception. She went out of her way to try to make the most of the rapidly disappearing sunset and we managed to get a great diversity of beautiful scenes around Magnolia Plantation. We would definitely recommend her to others as their official wedding photographer and we were delighted to be able to support her in her career. Her rates were very competitive and her work was of the highest quality. Thank you so much, Sarah!!! - Peter, Charleston, SC
We had a blast! Logan even commented that he, “fell even more in love” with me as we stared into each other’s eyes, so very sweet. We will always cherish those moments, especially because it was our first photo shoot together. I really love them all, you did an amazing job Sarah! - Erica, Charleston, SC
Sarah is amazing! She took photos of my family in Charleston near rainbow row and the waterfront & I can't tell you how happy I am with the way our pictures turned out. My 18 month old was woken up by me after sleeping in the car & she was not in a good mood when we showed up to meet Sarah. I was so worried about how we were going to take pictures with a grumpy toddler. Well, Sarah whipped out a few toys (lifesaver) which distracted my daughter and stopped her from crying. Then Sarah had us do our own thing - playing with our daughter, chasing her around, walking together and holding hands as a family. If you saw the way our pictures turned out, you would have no idea that our daughter was just screaming minutes before we started taking pictures. We've gotten so many compliments from our friends and family who were highly impressed with the way our pictures turned out. They look so natural! And the quality/resolution is so much better than some of the pictures I saw on other local photographers websites. I will definitely recommend Sarah to my friends and family for all of their picture needs. Thanks a million, Sarah!! - Jenn, Charleston, SC
