If you are looking for a wedding photographer in the DMV area, please look no further than Sara Vars! My search for a wedding photographer was very overwhelming. If all else failed on my wedding day, I knew, if anything, I wanted great pictures...
to look back on. In the wedding photographer search, I had browsed portfolios and made over 50 wedding photographer inquiries in the DMV area. When I came across Sara Vars’ photography website, I instantly connected with her work. Her elegant and timeless photography style was exactly what I was looking for without breaking the bank. Upon the first consultation with Sara, I immediately knew I had to book her as the wedding photographer. Sara is very inviting, attentive and makes photoshoots fun. She has great ideas for photographs. For our 100+ guest wedding, she covered all the details beautifully from start to end. I even had guests tell me how awesome Sara was during our wedding -she was on the job! My husband Michael and I are very thankful we have these breathtaking photos to look back on for years and years to come. MANY THANKS to Sara! Best, Jeanie

I am writing to bring to your attention the very positive experience my family had utilizing the services of Sara Vars Photography. Our son and daughter-in-law were married on August 25, 2019 in Edgemere, Maryland. The newlyweds had selected ...
Sarah Vars to be their photographer, and it turned out to be an excellent decision. In addition to being a highly skilled photographer (an artist), Sarah was very pleasant and thorough. As my husband was still recovering from a broken ankle at the time of the wedding, he as not fully mobile at the wedding. Sarah went out of her way to let us know when “important” events would be occurring so that my husband could make his way (slowly) to the appropriate location to witness these once in a lifetime events. Ross and Katie, as well as the rest of the family, leaned heavily on Sarah. Sarah was very patient and extremely knowledgeable. There is no doubt in our minds that she deserves a lot of credit for this event’s being a huge success and leaving the entire family with some cherished memories to view in years to come.
Please feel free to use us an extremely positive reference.

Photography was probably my most important vendor; having great photos to last a lifetime was really important to me. From the second I met Sara, she made me feel comfortable, at ease, and like I was in good hands, and her portfolio sold me!!
or the wedding, Sara and Molly were true professionals. Our timeline for the day got turned inside out due to unrelenting rain, but they showed up prepared in rain jackets and had enough of the cute clear umbrellas for the bridal party to use. We were limited to Bancroft for taking bridal party photos/romantics after the wedding, and family photos were moved to inside of the reception hall during cocktail hour, but Sara and Molly were so flexible and very creative with their shots (and worth mentioning- they were able to get 60 family photo combinations in an hour!!) Throughout the day Sara kept me relaxed, truly made me feel special and let me enjoy the day. And now that I have the pictures back, I'm absolutely blown away!! From posed romantics to formal family portraits to candid dancing shots Sara captured everything, even somethings I missed. There's not a single photo I don't like, and I don't feel like I missed out on any photo opportunities because of the rain- in fact, Sara managed to get some incredible shots with it!!

some amazing photos, a ton of them actually! Considering the back-breaking work at the wedding and hours of editing photos, we also found the price very reasonable for engagement photos, Sara's work during the wedding, and the extra cost of a 2nd photographer for part of the time.
During the wedding day, Sara and Molly coordinated so we could meet for our first look and they were pros at capturing the list of shots we had sent - so fast that we had a lot more time for photos of just my husband and I before we headed over to the ceremony. They both really outdid themselves - scaling Federal Hill to get different photo angles, politely taking everyone's photos who asked, and laughing off the antics of my husband's groomsmen. Sara put up with our guests and family members and did her best to make sure everyone was looking at her camera rather than the iPhones other people were trying to use. Sara even went the extra mile at the end of the night and stayed longer than we expected to capture some amazing photos at the end of the wedding! She also reminded us of photos we wanted to take during the reception of certain groups of our guests and helped coordinate to find everyone.

In the beginning, when certain poses didn’t feel like “us”, Sara didn’t push, but adapted to capture our natural norm. She made all our family feel at ease, and was sensitive to blended and nontraditional families as well.

Sara Vars Photography provided photography services for my son and daughter in law's wedding. Sara's photos were candid and creative, and she always found that unique photo op that makes a wedding memorable. She began by taking photos of the ...
bride and her parents at their home, and then arrived at the chapel promptly and was able to "grab" those "before wedding" priceless photos. Sara's creative eye made use of the flowers blooming outside the chapel, as well as the historic architecture that the chapel offered to add to the richness of her photography. Sara was willing to work within their budget, and she produced one-of-a-kind photos that this couple will treasure for a lifetime. I highly recommend Sara Vars Photography.

My first camera was a gift from my dad. That camera started a journey for me. I love to capture those moments that pass in an instant: a child's laugh, a new life, a family's inside joke, the groom's face at the first look of his bride... those moments impossible to recreate, because each day is a gift.
