When researching a photographer for my wedding, I came across photos taken at the venue where I was going to have my reception and was taken aback by Sara Wight's beautiful photography. Her work stood out to me because of the fine art approach and beautiful candid moments that are invaluable. Sara was such a pleasure to work from our initial meeting in her office and all the way through to months after our wedding! We talked about ways to get different shots at my reception venue and she completely followed through on that; in fact, one of our favorite shots is actually in this beautiful spot that I never knew existed at our venue! Sara and Leana were so great on the day of our wedding and made us feel at ease & made sure we got all of our must-have shots while also giving us time to mingle with guests at cocktail hour. Going through all of our photos brought tears to my eyes because they really captured such precious moments that brought back incredible memories of our day. All of our family and friends have commented on the beauty of our photos and I would highly recommend Sara Wight Photography to any couple!

Simply put, Sara is the best. My husband came across Sara's website in the midst of early wedding planning last spring. We were immediately drawn to the beauty of her photographs. Soon after contacting her through her website, we met in person to ask questions, learn more about her work and her wedding packages, and for her to get to know us and what we were looking for in a photographer. The meeting was wonderful. Sara is warm, funny, and thoughtful and always professional. She takes her job very seriously and has a deep love and passion for photography, which shines through when she talks about her work and more importantly, is evidenced in the work itself. We met for an engagement shoot on the Highline/in Chelsea a few weeks later. At first, we were a little nervous and stiff, but Sara made us feel so comfortable, like we were the only ones on the Highline. She has a gift for navigating photoshoots in a bustling city, it's impressive! Sara, of course, also did our wedding day photos. They're not only gorgeous, but by the time we got married, we'd known Sara for more than 6 months and were so incredibly comfortable with placing our special day in her hands. Sara and her assistant captured a wide range of images, got every shot on our shot list, and fully captured the day in a way that we'll be able to relive it forever. We can't say enough about Sara, she's just wonderful. We hope to continue working with her to document future life milestones!

Having Sara photograph our wedding day was hands down one of the best decisions we made. Of course, I can begin with how she was incredibly warm, professional, and a pleasure to work with from day one, being flexible to help us find the right package, and how she made the planning process a breeze - truly one of the very few vendors I simply didn't worry about, because I knew she had everything under control and was going to do a fabulous job. But none of that does justice to what it was actually like to have Sara as part of our "team" on our big day. If you're going to have someone around you all day long on such an important day, someone like Sara is a true blessing - calm, assuring, fun to work with - it honestly felt like she was one of our friends and family, the way she made everything feel so effortless. When she came to say goodbye at the end of the night, I didn't want her to leave!!

But of course, the real magic was in the absolutely incredible shots she provided for us. The photos of our wedding day look like everything I dreamed and hoped they would be. They captured all the emotional looks, the laughter, the ambience; my husband and I going nuts on the dance floor, our stunning venue and the sunset over the river, the way the whole room glowed with candles, the hands thrown in the air while our friends partied to the band, the sparkle of my sash, the twirl of my skirt, all the tiny details we had worked so hard on, all the love and joy on our friends and families' faces. There were even shots of details I had forgotten to mention in advance, and so many candid, pure moments. Everything - myself included - looked more beautiful than I could have hoped. The day itself was such a blur, but our photos captured it in the most stunning, emotional, authentic, and classic way possible. We are so grateful to have had Sara and couldn't recommend her more highly. I would have her photograph all my major life events if I could!!

Five stars are not nearly enough to express how fantastic Sara Wight is. My husband and I got married last weekend and could not be happier about our decision to have Sara as our photographer. Not only is she an amazing photographer, but she is also an extremely kind person. Simply put, she is the best in the biz.

From the onset of our conversations with Sara, she was warm, helpful, professional, responsive and meticulous about every detail of the photography for our wedding. During our engagement shoot, she made us feel comfortable and produced beautiful images. At the wedding itself, she offered an artistic eye in identifying beautiful places for pictures, helped corral our rowdy bridal party and captured the entire evening flawlessly. We've only seen a few teaser pictures thus far and are already blown away by the beauty of her photographs.

We would HIGHLY recommend Sara for any photography needs. Hiring her for our wedding was absolutely one of the best decisions that we made. We love you, Sara!

We found Sara online and immediately felt a connection to her photography. I am all about beautiful landscapes and capturing both beautiful moments with people and with nature - which i definitely saw on her website. I have a hectic schedule and wasn't able to meet her on a business day, so she very kindly met with me on a sunday at a coffee shop! She was so sweet, and just felt like a laid back, normal person. I am awkward and usually don't like getting my picture taken, so I definitely wanted something a photographer that A) i could meet with beforehand, and B) would make me feel more comfortable. We felt right about going with her, and then had our engagement shoot. She drove to Pennsylvania for us, and was great about providing us with some photo ideas / locations / poses, while also letting us be ourselves. None of it felt like she was forcing it, but just saying that things were good when they weren't. I loved the engagement photos, and felt confident that she would deliver great wedding pics. On the day of our wedding, she arrived on time, was efficient but not pushy about our portrait photos with family, and then I honestly enjoyed the reception that i didn't even notice her taking photos!. We got digital copies of all the photos, and our album was a truly high quality photo album that i'm obsessed with. I hope to work with Sara again!! HIGHLY recommended!

Sara was an absolute joy to work with before and during the wedding. In the planning phase, she always kindly accommodated my schedule. On the big day, she had already taken the time to know the space/location and logistics, and she captured every moment while allowing the day/night to unfold naturally. My husband and I (and our families and friends) absolutely love the wedding photographs. From detail to group to candid shots, we have so many favorites. I'm so thankful we worked with Sara--I wish we could have her at every major life celebration!

All of the five-star reviews don't lie - Sara is the best! I came across her work on a few different wedding blogs and was so impressed by her beautiful photographs. But just as importantly, she is amazing to work with. Sara is one of the most highly responsive people I've met, answering emails pretty much as quickly as I could send them. Such a godsend during the (at times) stressful wedding planning process!

Sara made us feel comfortable from the start when we had our engagement photo shoot. I was so glad we had the opportunity to get to know her better, which made us feel more at ease taking photos the day of our wedding.

As for the wedding itself, Sara was amazingly organized, and got every single shot we had asked for in terms of family portraits, etc. Super detail-oriented! And she was able to take the most amazing throughout the night, without ever interrupting us or taking us away from the celebration.

In short: Sara is AMAZING, and we would recommend her to anyone we knew who was getting married or wanted beautiful photos. Can't say enough great things about her!

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.
