I cannot say enough good things about Sarah and Mark. They did our engagement pictures, which were amazing. I highly encourage any bride to have engagement photos done with Sarah because when my wedding came around, I was already completely comfortable with Sarah and what she was going to ask us to do. Leading up to our wedding, Sarah's organization and knowledge made planning out our day a breeze. She knew just how long everything would take and was totally prepared for everything, which is every OCD bride's dream. The day of my wedding, there came a torrential downpour. It didn't stop raining until I walked down the aisle. But Sarah and Mark never stopped. The grooms dressing area actually fludded, and Mark had to help all of the guys evacuate. They gave up all of their umbrellas so we could have pictures made. Then, to top it all off, my pictures were returned in TWO WEEKS. That was absolutely incredible. If you don't choose Sarah and Mark, you are making a mistake. We can't wait to have them photograph our kids pictures and family pictures forever. We could not love them more!
Working with Sarah and her husband was an absolute dream. My husband and I had a short engagement and planned our wedding relatively quickly. Sarah was the first vendor we booked and without a doubt one of the absolute best choices we made throughout all of our planning. I am so glad we booked her early because no one else would have done such a wonderful job. Sarah interviewed my husband and I before confirming the booking which was wonderful and actually fun! I really appreciated that because not only did we get to know her a little more, but it really showed me that she has respect for herself as a photographer and wants to work with people that she connects with. Sarah arrived at the ceremony location on time and quickly familiarized herself with the area and started shooting my bridesmaids and I getting ready. Her husband mark traveled to where my husband and our groomsmen were prepping and spent some time getting to know them and shooting their photos. Mark and Sarah captured so many amazing moments throughout the evening and even set up some fun moments in the hail and rain that we experienced! The photos were ready for us so quickly and I cry every time I dive into the album. Working with Sarah was such a fantastic investment and I hope to work with her again in the future for the rest of our life events.
If you are reading this and considering booking Sarah for your wedding day, do it!!! Neither my husband nor I know much about photography, so we feel so lucky to have found Sarah. She made the process so easy and I especially appreciated how organized she was, it took a lot of the pressure off of my mom and I. Having Sarah photograph our wedding was so effortless, and her and Mark actually made the process of taking pictures FUN. As someone who hates having my picture taken, I was shocked at how at ease I felt. Not to mention she went and scoped out our venue ahead of time to make sure she knew where to place us ahead of time, that is incredible client service if you ask me. And finally, the photos themselves were absolutely stunning. We couldn't be more happy, and even got the pictures back much much faster than we were expecting. Sarah, you are amazing and we so appreciate you being a part of the big day!
Sarah and Mark did an amazing job! We absolutely loved working with them for our engagement pictures and our wedding. We were planning our wedding from out of state and Sarah made everything a breeze! We love our photos and our family does as well! Sarah delivered the dream wedding photographer experience! I would recommend her to anyone!
Y’all, Sarah and Mark are the best! I was extremely nervous finding a photographer as I was planning my wedding from another state and Sarah was more than willing to meet up any day I could. She has such talent and the perfect eye for those special moments you don’t never want to miss. I was beyond pleased to find out Sarah went to the venue ahead of time to find the perfect spots for my big day. She also followed up a week before to ensure we were comfortable with the timeline. Talk about a stress reliever! Thank you so much for the breathtaking photos! Friends, family, and coworkers have all shed tears looking at the priceless moments you captured. Rob and I can’t thank you enough!!
Sarah is incredible!!!! She was so organized from the minute I reached out to her! She makes everything so easy and stress free! I felt so comfortable knowing our wedding memories were in their hands. Sarah and Mark are so talented and they make such a great team! It was so nice to have Sarah with the bridesmaids and Mark with the groomsmen to capture the fun! We got married on probably one of the hottest days of the year and they were fantastic about accommodating so we weren't crazy hot but still getting beautiful pictures! They were so helpful throughout the whole day and just fun to have around! We got our pictures back very quickly after the wedding too! They were super easy to look through, download, and share with friends and family! I cannot say enough good things about this fun and talented duo!
I would highly recommend Sarah Sidwell for photographing your wedding!! She and her husband Mark were such a pleasure to work with. She met with me initially just to get a sense of what kind of photos I liked and what I was imagining for our big day. Leading up to the wedding she was a great communicator. She was flexible with the weather on the day I was supposed to have my bridal portraits taken (the rain had us switching the times and she handled it so well). On our wedding day, she was a calm and happy presence. She made Scott and me feel comfortable in what would normally be an overwhelming situation (i.e., taking hundreds of photos with time constraints). Sarah and Mark made the photos so FUN and happy! Sarah Sidwell photography is an incredible value — she delivered an impeccable finished product and exceeded all expectations. I’ve had multiple people tell me that our wedding photos are the most beautiful they’ve ever seen! We LOVED working with Sarah (it was like spending time with a sweet friend) and will forever treasure the beautiful memories she captured with her photos!
Look no further!! Sarah + Mark are as good as it gets! Their work is stunning. My wedding took place in June and I am still receiving compliments on our wedding pictures. We loved our pictures so much I couldn’t wait to ask them to take our family pictures this year as well. We seriously couldn’t have asked for anything better!!
Sarah is AMAZING! She took our engagement photos which made me feel super comfortable about using her for our wedding! Day of she just blew my mind! While doing bridal shots and bridesmaids her husband Mark took over on the groom and groomsmen. They worked so well together creating such an easy day of photographs! For laid back BEAUTIFUL photos I will ALWAYS use Sarah! Xoxo
Sarah and Mark were amazing! They made my husband and I feel so comfortable - especially for 2 people who are not super comfortable in front of a camera. We were blown away by how quickly we got our photos back and how absolutely beautiful they are. We have gotten constant compliments on them and I can't stop looking at them :) Thank you so so so much, Sarah and Mark! Y'all are seriously the best.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sarah. We enjoyed every minute of our time working with her for our engagement session and our wedding day. She has such a talent for finding beautiful photo spots-- we trusted her with everything and were not disappointed. My husband and I were so comfortable with Sarah on our wedding day and every photo is breathtaking. She even got our wedding photos back to us in 3 WEEKS-- and there were over 1,000 photos!! We are so happy with every penny we spent on our photos. We will cherish them for years to come!
Sarah photographed both our engagement and wedding photos. Wow, she did an absolutely amazing job! I have a massive collection of beautiful photographs that I can look back on for years to come. I loved her creativity and it really shows in her work. Yet, she captures elegance and timeless pictures, as well as some fun and whimsical moments! It was a true pleasure to work with Sarah and Mark. We hope to keep Sarah close by, as she also does maternity, baby, and family pictures.
My wife and I planned our wedding in just 60 days, and we're so glad we chose Sarah to be our photographer. Sarah was extremely professional, and her speedy communication and thorough preparation was so helpful for us on the short timeline. Day of, she and her husband, Mark, were both fantastic to work with, nailed all the shots, and kept the bridal party and family photos running efficiently and on time. The photos came out beautifully and we love looking through our wedding album to remember our special day. Thank you, Sarah and Mark!
When my fiance and I started planning our wedding, we knew two things: our food and our photography both had to be out of this world. Sarah was recommended to me by my mother-in-law, and I'm so glad because she and Mark were absolutely phenomenal! I can't recommend her enough. Not only did she put time in with me before our wedding, talking about where the photos should be, the different shots we wanted to get, etc., but she was phenomenal during our wedding day. It poured rain but she was flexible and incredibly organized! And when I got the photos I cried - they were more beautiful than I ever imagined! Hire Sarah and Mark for your wedding!!
We could not have dreamed of a better photographer for our wedding day than Sarah! She is super friendly and instantly makes you feel at ease in front of the camera. Every moment from our day was captured beautifully and Sarah had our pictures to us in what seemed like the blink of an eye! Sarah’s artistic style is breathtaking and every image she gave us brought back so many great memories. Sarah not only photographed our wedding day, but did our engagement sessions as well. We are looking forward to having all of these photos in our home for many years to come! We highly recommend Sarah Sidwell Photography for your wedding, engagement, or any special moment you want photographed!
Sarah is absolutely amazing. I knew upon meeting her that she would be amazing. She is kind, gentle, a good listener, and an artist. Our wedding was non-traditional, and she rose to the occasion. Our photos are beautiful, and they truly are a gift. Sarah exceeded all of my expectations. I am so glad we chose her, she is the best.
Planning a wedding is completely overwhelming and finding a good photographer is notoriously tricky and one of the biggest tasks to conquer. Sarah Sidwell Photography was recommended to me by my wedding coordinator and I’m so so happy that she was! My fiancé and I are incredibly uncomfortable in front of the camera and hate taking pictures. Sarah and Mark made us feel entirely at ease and managed to catch the best pictures and our favorite moments. We could not be happier with the way our wedding pictures turned out! Sarah was always available for questions and information and helped us plan a wedding day timeline so that it would flow seamlessly and we wouldn’t be burnt out on taking pictures. Sarah and Mark both managed to capture different aspects of the day and I loved having them both around! They were very professional and their personalities were great to work with. I hope to work with them in the future as our family grows! Thanks for helping to make our day perfect!
When I started looking for a photographer, I didn't have much of an idea of where to start. I emailed several, including Sarah. She was so personable even through email, and eventually suggested that we meet for coffee. She was so professional and took the time to answer all of my questions, including some I didn't know I had! Hiring Sarah (and Mark) for our engagement and wedding photos was one of the best decisions I made during wedding planning. She suggested places for engagement pictures, and was brave enough to let our two lab puppies tag along, taking great pictures the entire time! On the day of our wedding, Sarah and Mark were flexible enough to take pictures in two different locations while my husband and I got ready. I have a large family, and Sarah and Mark were able to professionally and calmly organize them for pictures after our ceremony. After the wedding, Sarah was sweet enough to share several sneak peeks. She also took the time to come to our home one afternoon and walk me through the process of picking out photos to display in our home - and continues to be patient with me as I choose exactly what I want! Sarah is an amazing photographer, and truly loves what she does. You won't regret hiring her!
From the engagement photos, to my bridal session, to our wedding day, we loved every moment and every photo. Sarah is organized, professional, and talented, the entire package that one looks for in a wedding photographer. She makes you feel comfortable for those that are camera shy and is incredible at capturing couples in an elegant, natural way. On our wedding day Sarah and Mark made a fantastic team. We are so happy with our photographer choice and highly recommend Sarah Sidwell Photography.
I can’t even begin to describe the amazing experience I had working with Sarah and Mark. After a few weeks of researching photographers, reviews, and galleries I came up with a short list of people I was interested in. When I called Sarah she immediately set herself apart from the rest. Rather than emailing me a list of packages and prices she invited me for coffee so we could get to know each other and talk about what I was looking for in a photographer. After meeting with her I knew instantly we had found our photographer. Her ability to be professional and share in our excitement was so genuine and something that put me at ease. My husband has never been known to be comfortable in front of a camera, but looking at our engagement pictures you would never know. Fast forward to our wedding day (which felt like it took an eternity because of our year and a half long engagement), Sarah and Mark were so accommodating in the fact that my husband and I were not getting ready in the same location. It worked out perfectly considering we weren’t doing a first look! The weather was great, but all the wind was making me a little uneasy and Sarah and Mark were quick to tell me that the wind was making for some great pictures with my veil and oh boy was she right! After getting some of our pictures back I can’t believe how perfectly Sarah and Mark captured every moment of the day. Taylor and I didn’t just find a wedding day photographer in Sarah Sidwell Photography; we found a photographer for all our moments to come as well. I could go on for days, but if you are thinking of using Sarah and Mark to capture your wedding day you will not be disappointed!
Sarah Sidwell Photography has FAR EXCEEDED all of my expectations and hopes for a wedding photographer! My husband and I had a “pseudo-elopement” with just our parents in late-October, that we planned in less than 4 weeks. Most photographers were already booked (or crazy expensive) but one of them was kind enough to recommend Sarah Sidwell Photography. By some miracle they were available on our wedding date and within our budget. And, I found out that Sarah wore the same wedding dress that I chose – a sign of good taste! From the first meeting to the wedding day, Sarah and Mark went above and beyond the call of duty. They were quick to respond to emails, helped us create our day-of timeline, and even recommended a hair stylist when mine fell through at the last minute (sidenote: Michelle Joy did an AMAZING job on my hair). Our venue was one they’d never been to, so they scoped it out prior to our wedding day so they knew exactly what to expect. On wedding day, they arrived early and stayed late. They were flexible, attentive to detail, very communicative with us and each other, had super creative ideas, and made everyone felt natural and relaxed in front of the camera. It felt like we were hanging out with old friends! Because our wedding was small and spontaneous, we kept it quiet from friends and family. Sarah agreed to deliver us 2-3 images within a few days of our wedding, so we could announce our nuptials with a picture, and BOY did she deliver tenfold! It’s rare to find a vendor with this level of talent, professionalism, and dedication at such an affordable price. We could not be happier with Sarah Sidwell Photography, and we joyfully anticipate the beautiful pictures Sarah and Mark will deliver to us in the coming weeks.
Time for a little confession - I booked Sarah for a date before my husband even proposed. But, I knew it was coming, and I wanted to make sure I had reserved Sarah for the weekend I wanted! She took my high school senior photos years ago, and when it came time for my wedding, I knew I wanted to work with her. From the bridal shoot to the mini engagement shoot to the day of the wedding, her and Mark were such a joy to work with. Even my husband, who is not a fan of being in front of a camera, was quickly put at ease by their creativity and professionalism. And we were so incredibly happy with the resulting pictures! We can’t express enough how much we appreciate them so perfectly capturing memories for us to cherish.
Sarah and Mark get my unqualified endorsement. Firstly, I absolutely loved my photos. They are incredible -not only are they beautiful, but they totally captured my husband and I as a couple, and the feeling of my wedding day. The pictures remind me not just who was there, and how it looked, but how it felt. 2) They are easy to work with, affordable and just kind people. 3) Sarah has been so diligent in keeping in contact with me even now, 6 months after the wedding. She sent me some free prints for funsies, and we're still friends on facebook!
I can’t say enough great things about Sarah and her husband Mark! My husband and I met Sarah before our wedding and instantly knew that we wanted her to be our photographer. Her warm and friendly personality makes you feel immediately comfortable being around her, which is a very important quality to have in a photographer. We purchased a package that included our engagement session along with our wedding day. All of our photos from both events turned out PHENOMENALLY. We were so happy to see our love and families captured in a way that was so “us.” Sarah and Mark did a great job balancing the posed artistic photos with the more candid “in the moment” photos. We receive constant compliments and comments about how much people love the way our photos turned out. We had a hard time choosing which photos to put into our album because there were so many great shots that we wanted included. Sarah and Mark were very professional and punctual for all of our meetings. Sarah is fantastic at communicating and was able to get our photos back to us in a very reasonable time frame after the wedding. I highly recommend Sarah for any of your photography needs!
When we started planning our wedding finding a good photographer was one of the most important parts to me. I wanted someone that would be easy to work with and would capture our day as it truly happened. I looked at a ton of Nashville photography websites (a ton!!) and narrowed it down to three. I found Sarah on this site and when we met in person my now-husband and I knew we wanted to work with Sarah. Sarah was very sweet and friendly, but down to business at the same time. She was very organized and helpful and even recommended a fabulous makeup artist (Leslee Engle) to do my makeup and all my girls’ makeup after my trial run with someone else did not go well at all. We loved Sarah’s style and portfolio and our personalities meshed perfectly. Sarah and Mark were so easy and fun to work with on our wedding day we could not have asked for a better experience. They captured the fun we had as we were able to be ourselves and enjoyed the best day of our lives.
