Without a doubt, our FAVORITE wedding vendor - SRS Photography!

Sara is simply 'the best'! She is just so easy to work with - from our initial conversations about the different photo packages and what worked for our budget, to coordinating the engagement photo shoot, to her phenomenal job at the wedding, we really loved every second of... Read More working with Sara. In fact, We truly think of her as a good friend who wanted the best for us - we could tell that she really cares about her work and her clients. I can't stress this point enough, but she made every step simple to navigate. She is organized and proactive. We worked with a long list of vendors for the wedding, but working with Sara was by far the easiest. I never had to worry about anything picture related - she is a true professional. She was so 'on point' with everything. And her photographic style is just stunning - she is one talented lady! She captured such intimate and candid moments without ever being intrusive - very natural. We didn't even know she was there most of the time. Sara managed the wedding party seamlessly. We were a large group, but she kept us on track, while ensuring to capture key photos. We are beyond happy with our photos and have so many to choose from - and this is certainly a good problem to have. You will not regret working with Sara. We would pick her a million times over!!!

I wish I had the right words to express how happy James and I are with Sara. From the moment we met Sara, to the engagement photo shoot, to receiving our pictures, we have been beyond thrilled. She has made us feel like the most special bride and groom - if there was one... Read More person looking out for us during our planning it was Sara! And of course - her photography is beautiful! I have had so many comments and many of my friends have been quite jealous that my pictures turned out the way they did. For me, this vendor was most important because these pictures are what remind you and your significant other of what an amazing day your wedding truly was. And Sara gave us that - I can't thank her enough. I could go on and on but I also know Sara's work speaks for itself!

Before I can even comment on the day of, I have to say that Sara helped us with some major decisions early on about the timeline that I had never even thought of! With her help we came up with a flexible but important timeline for the events of the day. Since we were having... Read More the ceremony and reception at the same location, breaking away for some photos was going to take some planning. Now, that being said, the ceremony started an hour late, then was ended before it was actually supposed to, my husband and I ended up walking out instead of taking pictures with family, then the whole next 2 hours of the schedule were done backwards, it was a little insane. I honestly have to say what kept me smiling and not caring was that Sara kept us rolling through it all, taking pictures but also getting us back on the timeline with all of the shots we wanted. Then when we got all the photos back and got to see how seamless and magical it all looked it was a reminder of what an amazing and beautiful day our Wedding Day was! If you already love the look and quality of Sara's portfolio and are just wondering if she'll be the right "person" - SHE IS!!!

As we approach our one year wedding anniversary, we continue to be so thrilled we found Sara to take our wedding photos. Not only did our photos come out beautifully – Sara is so kind and a wonderful person. She captured every important moment of our wedding – and even got us to... Read More take sunset photos on the beach after our vows! Throughout the whole day, we never noticed Sara or her team (in a good way). They never got in the way or forced any cheesy photos, which is something we did not want during our special day. Sara is not only a wedding photographer, she is an artist – and this shows through her photos. We keep getting compliments to this day about how beautiful and happy our photos are. Sara also introduced us to a videographer and they worked together wonderfully. Thank you, Sara and team, for capturing our special day!

There was one area of our wedding that my wife was unwilling to compromise on, and that was the photography. Everything else, food, flowers, music, those were temporary, but the photographs will hopefully outlast us and be enjoyed by our great grandchildren. For this reason,... Read More we are lucky to have met Sarah. From the get go, she was flexible and easy to work with, and made a point to make sure she knew what we wanted well in advance. The photographs were all excellent, and all of our guests were photographed. Engagement photographs were great as well. We are both completely satisfied, and will happily recommend Sarah and David for future weddings. One specific point I would like to make, when my wife and I attended other weddings, we both were bothered when ceremonies were interrupted by the wedding photographer, or they were too intrusive throughout the party. We both told Sarah we did not want a photo shoot, but for her to document the wedding as it truly happened. We are fortunate Sarah knew exactly the perfect balance of not being intrusive while capturing every authentic aspect of the wedding. We were able to enjoy our special day and have great photographs for the future.

I couldn't have asked for a more personable and down to earth photographer. Saying Sara is talented is an understatement. She has a great eye for natural, candid moments. Every time I look at all of the pictures, I feel like it was just yesterday.

We could not have been more pleased with Sara Stadtmiller and SRS Photography for our wedding day photos. Right from the start, Sara was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive and really professional. She listened to our situation and suggested a customized package... Read More for us, having a second photographer for only a portion of the day when it was needed. We appreciated that she didn't want us to overspend when we didn't need to. During our initial meeting, she took really good notes and documented our wishes for how our day should go and who we wanted in the photographs. This helped throughout the whole process and made the day of the wedding go very smoothly as she was prepared and organized. We really appreciated how comfortable she made us feel and we never had to stress about the photography for our wedding. Best of all, the photographs are beautiful!! Sara candidly captured the emotions of our special day and we never felt posed or unnatural. Her photos are very creative and we were really impressed with how she was able to handle the bright sunlight conditions of noon-time June wedding. We highly recommend Sara and SRS photography!

Sara is AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about her :) When my husband and I first met with her it was such an easy process. She was so easy to talk to, and really understood what our vision was for our wedding. We had a long engagement and she was always keeping in touch... Read More with us throughout the process. We met in person with her once more before the actual wedding to go over logistics and specific photos we wanted taken. The day of the wedding went so smoothly thanks to Sara. We recently got our photos back and my husband and I were commenting that we didn't even know that she had taken half of the photos she took because she did such a good job of not being in our faces, but getting every single photo we wanted. Every person we shared the photos with said that there was not one bad photo, and I could not agree more! I can't even pick one favorite, they are all my favorite :) Sara is so easy to talk to, and very calm, which is necessary on your wedding day! She really knows what she is doing. I could go on for days about how great and professional Sara was!

I can offer no higher recommendation. Sarah and Dave were brilliant, responsive, intuitive, and above all very professional. Planning a wedding is very stressful: despite it being the brides day, there are so many decisions she has to make and balances to strike. Sarah was so... Read More very accommodating. understanding, and intuitive about planning and choosing the choice of pictures. Everything turned out beautifully composed and shot. Dave and Sarah worked great together too. Other than the obvious posed shots, we didn't even notice them working. They somehow managed to capture "classic/characteristic" gestures and stances of our family and guests. Dave visited me and my best man while we were getting ready and added some levity and kept things moving which kept the butterflies calm- especially pinning those boutonnieres to our lapels without drawing blood :) As I said in my opening sentence, I could not recommend them any stronger. I would not hesitate in the least to book them for your wedding. Sit and talk with Sarah for 20 minutes and you'll see what I mean. Thank you Sarah and Dave for capturing the special moments of our special day.

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... Read More 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!

Sara and Dave worked our July 2015 wedding at the Molly Pitcher Inn. My husband and I were looking through photographer websites and were drawn to Sara's style - her pictures did not seem overly posed, she had lots of really warm candid shots, she made use of beautiful outdoor... Read More 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.
