As my wife and I were planning our wedding, we compiled all of the things we had loved at other weddings we had been to. This gave us a way to ensure that we were devoting larger parts of our budget that had much more meaning for us. So when it came to the pictures, we wanted a photographer that could capture natural, candid photos of the entire ceremony. We sat down with a few photographers from the area where we were getting married, and Sara Lil's work completely resonated with what we were looking for and wanted. Best of all, she was able to bring a colleague of hers along to the wedding, so we ended up with pictures coming from multiple vantage points. All in all, if you are looking for a photographer that upholds the highest levels of professionalism, expeditiousness in correspondences, creative eye, and ability to capture the essence of your special day, look no further than Sara Lil.

Sara was one of my favorite vendors to work with. She was so easy to get in touch with throughout the planning process, responding quickly to any questions and anticipating different issues that may come up on the day itself. She was flexible and professional and so lovely to have around during the day. She and her assistant captured the day amazingly - the photos of our wedding have surpassed even our highest expectations. I have gotten so many compliments on our wedding photos because Sara captured all the joy and happiness from the day, in a really natural and beautiful way. I'm looking forward to working with Sara to capture all the big milestones in my life. She's an amazing photographer to work with, incredibly professional and wonderfully skilled at what she does.

Sara was the only photographer we interviewed and our choice to photo our wedding. She was local and very easy to work with and flexible with her schedule. She always communicated right away and has competitive prices for the area including Portland and the Willamette Valley. There were only a couple things we wished were done differently, including not feeling so rushed to get photos before the wedding and we feel we missed out on more family photos that we asked for. Our album has a lot of wasted space (a lot of empty white on the pages) where additional pictures could have been included rather than only getting to pick a limited number out of over 500 pictures. We also thought there would be a lot more "creative" photos, especially given our outdoor venue and offsite reception. We felt the original interview with Sara showed a lot more creative shots, so that's what we anticipated, so we feel our money could have went further given the cost of wedding photography. Overall all though the engagement photos were awesome, most of our wedding pictures were ok, and Sara was a pleasure to work with.

Sara Lil Photography responded with the following comments:

Dear Jennifer,

I'm sadden to read on weddingwire.com about your disappointment in my work. The last contact I had from you was Sunday, November 07, 2010 at 6:54 PM, and the last thing you wrote me when you sent me your album image choices was:

"We can't wait to for the album! Thanks again for the amazing pictures!"

A previous email from you on Fri, Oct 29, 2010 at 10:04 PM regarding the flexibility I gave you when it came to the album, and you stating again how great the photos are:

"We actually have a good variety of all areas of including getting ready, formals, reception, etc. So this is why we are excited to be able to have your input in addition to ours because there are SO many great photos and good variety. There are so many of our favorites from all areas of the event, so this is great! Thank you so much for your flexibility..."

So as you can imagine I'm rather shocked to read this review especially since I contacted you after the New Year asking you if you liked your album. I never heard any response at all so I figure you were happy and all was well. If you had contacted me to discuss not being satisfied with your album design I would have gladly redone it.

I am proud of your wedding images and I feel I did an excellent job given the time constraints. Your wedding was a beautiful event and I was honored to be a part of it. Thank you.

I wish you the best always,
Sara

Just wanted to join the hordes of gushing fans....Sara Lil Photography is just as wonderful as everyone says. Choosing a great photographer was the number one priority when planning our wedding, and all the research online paid off! Where to start?

Sara's photos are gorgeous and unique, she worked with me to create a package I could afford, and she returns all emails quickly and with a level of warmth and sincerity that's hard to find. She's a joy to have around on the day of- she's fun and friendly while remaining very professional. While we were taking photos with her we had a blast, and while we were focused on other things (like getting married) she completely melted into the background while still capturing fantastic images. She listened very carefully and took to heart everything we said we wanted. She even got the images back to us much more quickly than expected! She was an all-around joy to work with and we're so glad she was a part of our wedding. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

Sara was our first decision we made for our wedding and definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We hired her to do our engagement photos and all of our photos for our big day! She was so easy to work with. She has such a creative talent that she comes up with amazing shots. She made us feel so comfortable with her that it was easy to relax and let our love for each other shine through in her photos. She was very professional, prompt, and easy to get a hold of when I needed her. The end result of all of our photographs was incredible. She even wrote over the rights to me for all of the photos and burnt them on a disk. It was a fabulous experience working with Sara and I would love for her to photograph our next event!

Words cannot describe how much we absolutely love the work that Sara Lil did for us! Every image is beautiful and captures every moment wonderfully. I could not be happier with how the photos turned out, they all have a fabulous artistic style that really makes every moment you capture special. They put me right back into the moment of that day! The book she includes with the disk, it makes it much easier to go through the disk, however all of the pictures are so fabulous that it makes it extremely hard to pick only a couple out of all of them. I love working with her and I hope to work with her for many life events in my future!

After researching photographers for our June wedding I stumbled upon Sara Lil's website. I absolutely fell in love with her style. She captures moments and finds the true personality of the people she is photographing. On my wedding day, I was so impressed with her professionalism, her warm personality, and how memorable she made the whole experience. I knew the pictures would be great but I was seriously blown away at how beautiful our photos turned out and everyone had nothing but praises at the wonderful job she did. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone!

The day we walked into Sara's studio and looked at her displays, we knew she was the photographer for our wedding. With a bride who is all about taking pictures all the time, and a groom who hates even the thought of it, Sara knew exactly how to create the most beautiful memories of our special day. She knows how to take the tedious job of capturing family and friends and the "hustle and bustle" of the day, and turn your pictures into art. I have been a part of many weddings and feel as if Sara made this the easiest and most fun part of the day. Which is many times not the case:) I hardly even remember having to stop and pose. We told Sara to move around freely and just capture anything and everything. When we got the pictures back 6 weeks later, I just cried! I was so excited to see the candid shots of family, friends, and memories already in the past, come right back to life. Much better than any video could capture. We thank her so very much for her hard work, professionalism and talented gifts. We are lucky to have worked with such a talented photographer.

The groom and I are both from out-of-state and were planning a destination wedding. Sara came recommended to us from some photographers in our area that had met her at a workshop previously. We contacted her and were working out details for both the engagement session and the wedding day almost immediately. She is very motivated, friendly, responsive, and accommodating. She was willing to meet us at different locations for the engagement session and the wedding day (neither of which was near her hometown) and was very enthusiastic. She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and encouraged us to be creative. She is also very affordable and there are many different combinations of services to choose from so you can find a combination to fit in your budget. Unfortunately for Sara, she had many personal tragedies before and after our wedding date but still never took more than a day to respond to any of our questions. She is a trooper and we could not be happier with both the experiences that she gave us as well as the images that resulted. We would HIGHLY recommended her to anyone and would choose her again in a heartbeat!
