An award-winning fine art photographer, Sara brings a fresh, unique approach to wedding photography. Unobtrusively capturing all of the highlights of your preparation, ceremony and celebration, she also focuses on the spontaneous personal moments and details that are often overlooked by the ordinary eye. Her sensitive yet powerful images will capture the beauty and mood in a way that will bring you back to your special day throughout the years to come. By playing with light and form, the results of her approach are evocative and elegant. Her aim is to produce not simply a photographic record of your wedding, but rather to create a body of art that you can showcase and treasure.

Sara is based in the New York tri-state area and is happy to travel.

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.

I couldn't be more pleased with the photos we recently received. I woke up super sick that day with a horrible cold, but I have to say, I looked beautiful in all the photos! 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!

You will not regret hiring Sara as your photographer. The moment I saw her photos, I knew that she could capture moments no one else could. I always thought that your wedding photos will be all that's left after the wedding is over and that is the most important (material) aspect of the wedding. This is what you will always have to remind you of one of the special days of your life.

So we recently received out wedding photos and my prediction was confirmed as Sara captured moments that we did not think were even possible to capture. In fact, she exceeded any expectations we had. She definitely has a talent for knowing exactly when to take that photo. We will always be able to remember every special moment whether it was funny, romantic, completely spontaneous or just a moment that was worth capturing. None of the photos seemed posed. I remember being on the dance floor and looking over at one of my funniest friends doing a very funny thing on the dance floor and thinking to myself if only this moment could be captured... When we got the photos, I went to the album containing the photos from the dancing and there it was - my best friend doing that outrageously funny thing. I don't even remember seeing Sara around. It's as if she became invisible so no one else could see as she was snapping those photos. Even the toasts were amazingly shot. Any individual who was not there but looked at the photos would be able to tell whether the toast was funny, touching, or embarrassing :) It's as if these photos were videos.

Thanks to Sara, my husband and our families will always remember our wedding exactly as it was - an amazing day surrounded by amazing people having an amazing time. There are few moments in life where you just want to stop and freeze it and experience it over and over again. Sara froze our wedding moments in time and every time we look at the photos we experience it over and over again.

We hired Sara Wight Photography to take wedding photos and portraits this past summer for our wedding in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Sara was incredibly flexible when it came to our timing and location needs - in fact, she gave us some great planning recommendations to help make the most of our day. On the day of, Sara and her staff were so patient and helpful with our wedding party and guests. I think they do a great job of being part of the wedding and not being intrusive at all as our candid photos are some our most memorable. All other vendors were thrilled to work with Sara and her team - our planner gave feedback that she was a pleasure to work with. If you have any engagement or wedding plans, we would ABSOLUTELY recommend Sara Wight Photography. Her photos are incredible and service is fantastic.

Sara is an amazing photographer, I wish I could give her way more than 5 stars. She photographed my wedding this past July and the photos we received are stunning and perfect. Not only is she the best photographer out there, she is also just a wonderful person. I first found Sara by doing a few google searches and seeing wonderful reviews. I also saw that she had photographed a wedding at the venue we were having our wedding at, and my husband and I loved her pictures. When we spoke on the phone for the first time I was completely hooked. She talked to me like a real person and did not try to sell herself at all. I spoke to her about feeling uncomfortable being in front of a camera and she totally understood what I was talking about. The day of our wedding she made us feel so comfortable and was just this quiet, calm, friendly presence. It's hard to describe how important this is on such a big day, but anyone that has had Sara as a photographer understands. Working with her after the wedding has been a dream. I highly recommend Sara to anyone that wants the most amazingly beautiful wedding photographs. After all is said and done, the memories and photos are the only things left after the excitement of the wedding day. Sara is worth every.single.penny and then some for the work that she does.
