Photos that ground you to a series of fleeting moments
Don’t blink; you’ll miss it. And it’s true. With the world at your fingertips, it’s easy to get caught up in life’s distractions. But this latest chapter of your life deserves your presence and celebration. Beyond that, it calls for documentation – wedding and portrait photography that tells the everlasting story of what you appreciate most about life as it is, right now.
The entire process was incredibly personal.
Robin & Ezra
She made us feel like our wedding was the most important wedding she had ever photographed.
On our wedding day she struck the perfect balance of being assertive, warm and composed to make sure everything went smoothly with our photos and our timeline.
Mary & Timmy
I don't know about all of you, but the first few minutes of posing in front of a camera in public is awkward.
Kathy & Nick
Thank goodness for Sara's great direction and good humor - all of the weirdness faded away fast, and we were romantically posing like pros in no time.
Jenny & Adam
She makes taking lots of romantic photos with your significant other feel really comfortable and natural.
And to make sure to adequately prep us, she sent us a guide book to taking good photos, filled with helpful tips.
Teresa & John
My husband is not super great in front of the camera, so I was a little nervous for the engagement session but Sara made us feel so comfortable and we had so much fun, which showed in the pictures.
Fill out my contact form to say hi and inquire about availability, pricing, and booking wedding or portrait photography. You can expect to hear back from me shortly - within 1-2 business days.
THE NEXT STEP
I value the time we get to chat together, hear your story, and familiarize myself with your vision for authentic imagery. We’ll schedule a complimentary phone consultation during this time. For portraits, we’ll mostly have the conversation through email. But if you want or need to chat on the phone, I’m available!
THE NEXT STEP
Ready to move forward? It’s time to choose your custom collection. Once you do, I’ll send over your contract to sign and invoice to pay the retainer and reserve your date. From there, the planning begins! You’ll also receive a digital guide for your chosen experience – Weddings or Portraits – to walk through all the details and my best tips leading up to your session.
THE NEXT STEP
The day we’ve been waiting for is finally here! All the planning comes to life. We’ll loosen up, have fun, and document together.
THE NEXT STEP
You’ll get a little taste of the imagery to come typically a week after our time together. Full gallery delivery takes about 4-6 weeks for weddings and 2 weeks for portraits.
Sneak Peeks & Full Gallery.
THE NEXT STEP
Photographing your most intimate, cherished moments means everything to me. So I mean it when I say I’m deeply invested in this relationship from the start. I’m in your corner always!
THE FIRST STEP
You’re ready to show up, show love, and embrace whatever unfolds in front of the camera while I document what life is really like.
You value authenticity; you want to be photographed as you are versus finding fabricated perfection through posing or photoshopping.
For you and your person – to just be in the moment of one of your most intimate chapters alongside your favorite people.
For anyone and everyone, from couples to growing families, energetic little ones, business owners, and even animal babies – to dog-ear life as you know it right now, whether it’s mundane or milestone-filled.
That’s why I provide custom collections with yours in mind. If you’re looking for something specific or a particular milestone to be preserved, let’s start the conversation and see where it leads.
Get in touch
While I don’t follow a posing workflow, I do recognize and appreciate that some guidance is necessary to facilitate space for letting your walls down in front of the camera. I’ll talk you through our time together, sharing prompts along the way that invite you to get comfortable and be in the moment.
Each wedding collection is custom to your specific vision and preferences. For that reason, I don’t guarantee a set number of images. However, you can expect to receive 1,000+ high-resolution, lightly edited (not retouched) photos.
For portraits, you can expect to receive 75+ images.
For both wedding and portrait collections, you’ll receive a digital gallery set up to make it easy to order prints, canvases, and other keepsakes – if you’d like. All images are available to download, and you’ll receive a printing release to print any images yourself.
Gallery delivery day is one of the best days! For weddings, you’ll receive your gallery 4-6 weeks following your big day. And for portraits, 2-3 weeks. But you know I’m always anxious to get you a few sneak peeks sooner – generally about a week after our time together.
When you officially book your wedding date with me as your photographer, I’ll send you my digital Wedding Guide. It includes recommended vendors I trust and admire, sample wedding day timelines, tips, a wedding day details checklist, information on heirloom products, and more.
I’m 100% a digital photographer!
I choose not to change the way you look, beyond removing blemishes, bruises, scrapes, etc.
Yes! I require you to pay a retainer to reserve your date. The remainder is due a month before your wedding day, or on the day of your portrait session.
For many reasons, a second photographer is included in all Wolfcrest Photography wedding collections! Having a trusted second photographer means it’s the closest I can get to being in two different places at once. As a team, we’ll take images of your day at the same time and provide you with a variety of shots and angles you wouldn’t otherwise receive.
