We also used Sara for our engagement pictures and have gotten so many compliments on them. She also doesn't mind working with a dog, and captured beautiful picture of ours at our engagement shoot and our wedding. For our wedding, Sara worked with Dave who was just as amazing as she is. Both Sara and Dave worked great with us, our bridal party, and our families. They were efficient with taking all of the family photos. They are both up for anything. Sara knew I wanted to take some pictures by the beach (weather permitting) and I am so glad we had good weather to do so. The beach pictures of my husband and I are my favorite. About 3 days after our wedding, she sent us a sneak peak and they are stunning. I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures!

wanted Sara to be our photographer. She's got such great energy and a calming vibe, something i desperately needed throughout our engagement shoot (and wedding!) that continued to rain and then rain some more. She still captured amazing pictures while laughing along with us during all the ridiculousness. So many of our friends and families commented how natural and beautiful the photos were! Then came our wedding day which we knew wasn't going to be easy. She really made us feel comfortable and worked with us through a new plan of our small outdoor wedding. Honestly, one of the best parts of our day was our first look and taking bridal party photos on the Long Branch boardwalk with Sara. It wasn't stressful, it was fun and enjoyable. Her partner Dave was so awesome- my husband loved him stating he was funny, calm, and cool to have around when the groomsmen were getting ready. He was a great addition to help Sara get the photos they really wanted. She captured such amazing candid moments just from the initial photos we have seen, we are so happy. I can't wait to see the final touches for the wedding album but we have full confidence it will be beyond our expectations. Sara was professional and just such a pleasure to work with. She's a true artist and deserves praise during these crazy covid times where your vendors really matter, do not hesitate to book her!!

eral mood of their work stood out to us among hundreds of other options, so we scheduled a meeting. Sara was a delight. Her studio was filled with albums and photographs we adored, and seeing how professional, knowledgeable, yet easy going she was it didn’t take us long to make up our minds and sign the contract. It was such a great decision. Everything concerning the photos during the day was absolutely stress free. Sara asked all the important questions way in advance, and guided us through the entire process. The attention to detail was unbelievable. She made herself familiar with our VIP guest list, knew who our immediate families, and best friends were, and made sure we have all the portraits and “must-have” group shots. We are no models, but you couldn’t say that from her photos. She made us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera, and guided us effortlessly through the whole “portrait” and “candid” part of the day. Later on during the reception, Sara and her assistant blended themselves into the crowd, and took most incredible “action shots”. The photos are stunning, and portraits of our guests are beautiful. It made for a neat add on to “thank you” notes. Their attention to detail was astounding. We brought a few family heirlooms to be incorporated into the decor and/or ceremony, and it’s unbelievable how they showcased them in their photos. We couldn’t be happier choosing SRS photography as our wedding vendor.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with the very talented Sara Stadtmiller from SRS Photography for our wedding. Sara brought her assistant Dave for the day, and together they did an amazing job. Their professionalism, quality, and ...
skill are phenomenal. They’re also just fabulous people! When we met Sara we immediately got good vibes. She took clear instructions about our requests and really got to know us personally and as a couple. She listened attentively and was sensitive and understanding of our unique family situations.
On the day of the wedding, Sara and Dave took all of the posed family portraits that we asked for. We were never made to feel awkward, and they provided the perfect amount of direction. Sara and Dave wore several “hats” throughout the evening. Not only did they take on the photographer role, they also helped in many other ways (putting on the men’s boutonnieres and keeping everyone on task and on time during portraits). They worked well with the wedding venue staff and other vendors, which made everything go smoothly. Most importantly, their humor, enthusiasm, and easy-going energy made us feel at ease.
We LOVE our pictures. All of our friends and family comment on how absolutely stunning they are. Our favorites are the candid shots of our bridal party getting ready and our guests mingling and dancing the night away. They were able to capture so many amazing moments, including many that we as the bride and groom missed.
Every time we look through our photos, we relive our wedding day all over again and we could not be happier with Sara’s work. Her experience, knowledge, and creativity are second to none and we highly recommend her to everyone for all occasions. We are so lucky to have met Sara. She truly captured our wedding day so beautifully—we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you!

d someone get a ceremony shot with our backlit venue? Was it possible for anyone to get a photo with my eyes open? Short answer: yes.
Sara immediately put us at ease and took time to get to know us as a couple. She incorporated what we wanted (more color and fewer black and white photos than her typical aesthetic, more reception photos and fewer first look photos) while steering us to beautiful engagement and wedding day shots.
Our reception photos were some of our favorites. There are so many beautifully composed dance floor shots. How you can compose a three-hours-into-and-open-bar dance floor shot like an Italian Renaissance painting where everyone looks good? We don’t know, but Sara did, and the end results are framed. Sara and her team were able to take photos of almost everyone at our reception, and they captured the story of the day.
Sara has already done additional photo shoots for other family members.

Hiring Sara as our wedding photographer was easily one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process. Sara is super kind and laid back, but also a true professional and an unbelievably hard worker. From our engagement photo ...
session, which ended up feeling like one of the best dates I had ever been on because she made us feel so comfortable, to our wedding day, which truly was the best day of my life, we could not have asked for a more talented or down-to-earth professional. Our wedding photos captured every sweet moment and then plenty of candid moments, which ended up being some of our favorite photos. The day goes by so quickly, so it's important to hire someone who knows how to capture moments big and small. We got married in the Chapel at Sandy Hook, and she brought an incredible team with her who kept us laughing and smiling all day and night. There is a gorgeous portrait of our family hanging in my mother-in-law's living room that is a testament to the quality of Sara's work, before, during and after our wedding. She is the best!

she made use of beautiful outdoor settings and natural light. We met with her in Asbury Park and felt really comfortable with her right away. This proved very useful because we're not the most natural picture-takers, but Sara had fun with us, got us to loosen up, and captured beautiful formal shots as well as candids. She also did a great job capturing special shots we had asked for, such as group shots of family & friends who had traveled across the country and from overseas. Plus, she got lots of quiet moments - looking through the pictures, there are shots of people dancing who I didn't even realize had met at the wedding. These are really special memories, and I'm so grateful that we worked with her that day.

Sara of SRS Photography is not only talented and professional, but has a down to earth, calming presence - exactly what one needs on their wedding day when things can quickly get chaotic.
She expertly guided us through our first look photos,...
family and bridal party portraits - capturing the formal pictures our parents desired as well as more natural "in-the-moment" ones my husband and I wanted. She was able to effortlessly direct a large group of people of various ages and personalities and kept things moving so we stayed on schedule.
We have an abundance of beautiful shots of our ceremony as well as hysterical ones of everyone getting down on the dance floor. Sara has an amazing eye - capturing gorgeous photos with the sun shining through and hitting just the right spots as well as more intimate moments you're so happy to have a photo memory of!
One of the best things about Sara is that I never felt like I was on display or that I needed to pose for the camera - it was as if she was another guest at our wedding, enjoying the day and quietly taking phenomenal pictures we would cherish forever.
We absolutely love the end result and our friends and family can't stop gushing about how well the pictures came out. We owe it all to Sara and her expert eye and wonderful personality.
In addition to her amazing skills, she worked with us to create a package that suited our budget and it was worth every penny spent. We cannot recommend SRS Photography's services enough!

ot get photographed the way we wanted. After choosing Sara, we met with her to go over some "must have" photograph groupings, you know, the need to have photographs with family members. My wife and I were very laid back with the whole process, and of course forgot a few key groups only to remember them the night before the wedding. I shot Sara a text, letting her know I had a "couple" additions to the list of needed photographs, and then met with her.....the morning of! I don't recommend trying this as it really isn't fair to the professional photographing your event, however, Sara handled it all in stride, getting right to work making us look better than I think we both thought we did. I was particularly impressed with her ability to make us feel completely relaxed, which found us posing ourselves far better than anyone could have directed us....it seems that she is very good at getting you to look natural and relaxed in front of the camera which results in amazingly beautiful photographs that look natural, not posed and forced. Not once during the wedding did we feel that we had a camera pushed in our faces, or a camera interrupting a moment my wife and I were sharing, however, she managed to capture every moment. Sara is also an fine art photographer, which was important to me, as I wanted some creativity with our photographs, instead of the standard cookie cutter photographs. Again, we could not be happier with the results, and highly recommend her to anyone who wants their event captured in photographs.

The photos were absolutely exquisite. We choose to order all of our proofs (which came in the most beautiful customized memory box,), as well as an album which Sara created with the favorites of the day, in addition to the formal album. Sara caught every moment of the wedding, which is conveyed in every photo.
All our of guests have raved about how gorgeous all of the photos are. The photos captured everyones emotions amazingly, in some where we are laughing you can almost hear that laughs coming out of the photo. They left me speechless because they are more then what I could have wanted to even imagined.
Aside from being a wonderful wedding photographer, Sara has a true gift. Her photography is amazing artwork and inspiring. Every time we look at all of our photos we are able to relive that day and all of our favorite moments.
Our wedding was the best day of my life, with virtually zero stress and it was all smiles. Sara was a major part in making it such a perfect day.
