I cannot express enough how happy my husband and I are with the pictures of our wedding! Sara came highly recommended to us by our wedding planner who had worked with Sara recently; after seeing their work in the Style Me Pretty blog, we were instantaneously drawn to Sara’s unique artistic pictures.

From start to finish, Sara’s attention to detail was incredible. She was able to strike a perfect balance between laid-back and professional. After our pre-wedding consultation, Sara emailed us a very detailed wedding day itinerary - she timed everything thoroughly. She even took the time to visit our venue and scout out the various locations on site prior to our wedding day.

Sara and her assistant Leana did a spectacular job and were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. Sara also has a wonderful calming presence, which is something that any bride will greatly appreciate on their wedding day!

We couldn’t be happier with the final product. Our pictures are tasteful, chic and truly reflected who we are as a couple. Thank you Sara for capturing every magical moment of our wedding day!

Photography was very important to us and we sought a high-quality photographer who would capture the most important moments of the day in a natural and artistic manner but not be overtly present and in our guests way. Sara fit this perfectly! We were very impressed with Sara’s portfolio and artistic style. We were even more pleased after meeting her in person; Sara is extremely, friendly, and easy to work. She was very responsive to my questions and was familiar with my venue having shot other weddings there before. On the day of the wedding, Sara was very efficient in getting through the bridal and family portraits prior to the ceremony. Sara captured the spirit of the day beautifully and our family and friends raved about our stunning photos. We highly recommend Sara Wight Photography.

I think Sara's greatest talent is her empathy with her clients. She was just as excited for us to be getting married as we were and it really shone through. She loves her job and that helped make the day even better! She was able to be both present and part of the wedding but also managed to never make you feel like self-concious of being photographed. I have no memory of Sara photographing us during the ceremony and yet there are wonderful photos from every angle. And I have to say our formal portrait session with her after the ceremony were just entirely too much fun.

And the results, oh my god the results! Our wedding looks like something out of magazine because of Sara. She took time and care to understand the venue so that we got a variety of wonderful compositions. And that combination of fine attention to detail to everything from the shoes, the rings, the decor and the incredible candid shots of the guests dancing, drinking and having fun mean that we will forever be able to look back on our wedding and see all of the joy captured beautifully. I know that as memory fades of the day itself that these beautiful, magical, artistic photos will always be able to bring me right back to the day.

The real magic for me is that in every photo Sara took of me I feel like I look beautiful. Every woman I know, myself included is always so critical of how they look in photographs. And I am no exception. When I shopped for my wedding dress I looked at every angle in the mirror to ensure that I could perhaps look ok at different angles. I just wanted, hoped to be able to have a few photos of myself from my wedding where I would like how I looked. I never expected that I would see hundreds of photos of myself where I feel I looked as beautiful as I felt. I don’t know how she does it but she just gets you mid open mouthed laugh, at your best angle and in the best light. I cannot thank Sara enough.

Photography was very important to my husband & I. Selecting Sara was the best decision we made, we were overjoyed with our wedding photos!

I found Sara in a bridal magazine. I would have booked her on the spot but we hadn’t confirmed a date or a venue! We both got along with Sara from the initial meeting; she’s sweet, genuine and easy going. She was my favorite vendor!

She is a very organized and professional. She helped me figure out a plan for the day and how much time I should dedicate to photos.

Without a doubt Sara is an extremely talented photojournalist. She was able to capture all the important details, 1st look, me dancing with my bridesmaids and the kids without us noticing she was there. She has an eye for a detail and capturing beauty in every shot.

Only a few days after our wedding, she posted a collage on facebook with some highlights. We were so excited and overjoyed when we received our finished photos!

I would highly recommend Sara to friends/ family or any bride. My only regret was not booking her for my rehearsal dinner.

Second to our venue, we felt our photographer to be the most important vendor we would choose for our wedding (and engagement photos), for a number of reasons: We were not planning to hire a videographer, which had interrupted our view and disturbed our ability to be in-the-moment as guests at others' affairs, so it was important that the photos told the whole story of our wedding. It was also important to us to hire a photographer who would capture everything without interrupting or disturbing our guests by standing on ladders, directing people in the middle of the dance floor or using heavy flash. Sara (and her assistant) succeeded masterfully in their photo-journalistic/fly-on-the-wall approach to capturing our ceremony and wedding, and their warm, caring interactions with our bridal party, family and others during our posed photography. Sara made us feel our special day was just as important to her as it was to us. When we received our photos, Sara organized them in a way that allowed us to relive the day and also take in all the things we weren't able to see in the moment of our wedding. We received countless compliments from friends and family and when we posted some select photos to social media, many of our friends and family changed their profile pictures to one of Sara's. We viewed this as the ultimate compliment to Sara and to the overall feel she contributed to our wedding day. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

Wedding photos were very important to us — We wanted to avoid those with excessive filters, bad color effects and overly staged poses. I had asked my now husband to research photographers for us, but also did some research of my own. I was happy to find we both selected Sara as our top choice.

Upon meeting her, we decided to cancel any other photographer meetings we had. She's incredibly friendly and easy-going, yet brings a lot of ideas and experience to the table. You can tell from her extensive portfolio that she has a clear artistic point of view.

Our wedding was this past Saturday. I had a minor crisis while getting ready (my family accidentally took my bridal undergarments to the wedding venue before I was dressed!) and Sara calmed me down and still managed to take a number of great photos while this all unfolded. Once we arrived at the waterfront to do our shots, she gave great direction and seemed to be having as much fun as we were. During the reception, her team was clearly working hard, yet in a way that wasn't invasive. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the NY area!

Sara was absolutely amazing! She was easy-going, fun to work with, super professional and she has an incredible eye. What I really loved about Sara is that our photographs so clearly represent each aspect of the day so timelessly, nothing is overly styled or forced or filtered, each image looks like the absolute best version of reality and I know that 20 years from now they will look just as gorgeous as they do today. We used Sara for wedding as well as engagement photos and both experiences were just phenomenal, we're so happy to have found Sara to capture these incredible moments for us, it's only been three months since the wedding but we just keep looking back at the photos over and over again! We also worked with Sara on making our wedding album which I would absolutely recommend, the quality of the book is beyond amazing and Sara asked us to pick our favorite 100 or so images and she did such a beautiful and thoughtful job arranging everything and styling the book, it's clear that she spends a lot of time on each of her clients and that's something worth investing in. We were just thrilled with everything!

My now husband and I simply found Sara Wight by "googling" our wedding venue, Tamarack Country Club and wedding photography. Sara's artistic and classic images popped right up and we immediately scheduled an appointment with her to meet with her for our big day. Sara was not only professional, but her entire portfolio was stunning. Her work is so artistic, and natural looking - exactly what we were seeking in a wedding photographer. (Sara won over my husband with her delicious chocolate offerings at our first meeting!). Once we made the decision to use Sara Wright Photography for our special day, I was never afraid to ask Sara for advice - on colors to wear for engagement photos, etc. Throughout the entire process, Sara was so available to us, reliable, professional, not intrusive and such a calming force on our special day. Choosing Sara Wight was one of the best wedding decisions we made. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Choosing Sara Wight Photography for your wedding is the best decision you can make. It certainly was for my husband and me! Sara is the perfect blend of professional, personable, and artistic. From our very first e-mail exchange, Sara made me feel comfortable and confident with the wedding photography process. She was always available to answer any questions we had and did so promptly. We were planning our wedding long distance, and Sara’s availability and professionalism made things much easier to organize. She even did a walk through with us just days before our wedding. On the day of the wedding, Sara was a calming presence. She brings a second photographer with her and together they captured all the “big moments,” from the ceremony and first kiss to the first dance and the cake cutting. She also captured all the “little details,” like shots of the flowers, shoes, and wedding gown, which are just as meaningful to a bride. The photographs themselves are just stunning. All of our friends and family have raved about the photos. Many people have commented that our photos look like they are straight out of a bridal magazine. Sara is a truly gifted photographer. She has a great eye and her photos look both natural and artistic. Even the typical family portraits look fantastic. The many candid photos from the reception allowed us to share in all the little moments during our wedding that we didn’t get to see. Sara has a way of photographing a look, or a smile, or a kiss that makes you feel like you are experiencing that special moment with the person in the picture. By far, my favorite part of our wedding day was being photographed by Sara at Old Westbury Gardens, just my new husband and me. Sara gave us subtle but clear direction, and it never felt like a photo shoot. It was wonderful to have a quiet moment together during all the wedding excitement. And of course, the photos are amazing! Whenever I look at them, they bring back all the wonderful

Sara does AMAZING work. This is a quality photographer who does quality work. If you have to spend money on any area of your wedding --- I recommend the bulk of it on your photos! You won't regret it.

She really knows how to capture moments, and photograph you at your most beautiful. She also was was a relaxing and calming influence on us --- something you definitely need on your wedding day. Her assistants are top-notch and we barely even noticed they were there, but there were a TON of photos!

I can't recommend her enough! Thanks Sara!
