We had a great experience working with Sara on our wedding photos. She knew what kind of look we were going for in our pictures and delivered. On the day she and Logan captured our wedding from all angles (I especially loved all the detail shots!) and we have been delighted with the results!

Hiring Sara Wise was the best decision we made in planning for our wedding. I couldn't be more happy with the photos they took of our day. The lighting and details were perfect - we didn't know we could look that good!

From our very first meeting, Sara was engaging and helpful. My husband and I had never had professional photos taken and were kind of nervous, but she made us feel comfortable. She listened to what we wanted and then exceeded our expectations. Photography was the part of the wedding we really wanted to make sure was top notch - we did so much research and I am convinced Sara is the best around!!

Sara Wise Photography was the best decision I made for my wedding! We picked our photographer out before most of our other vendors and she gave us great information about other vendors and told us all about them to help us make our decision. Sara was very flexible and willing to meet with me and discuss anything anytime I asked her. Your photographer is with you so much during the day of your wedding and working with you leading up to the wedding so you want someone friendly but still able to help direct everyone go where they need to be on the wedding day. Sara was a wonderful photographer and brought two others to help gather more pictures for us. The pictures she took were AMAZING and I love all of them! She gets you your images back super fast and has them set up on a very easy to use website where you can download the images. I would definitely call Sara again if we need a photographer in the future!

We loved working with Sara and Logan for our wedding pictures! Even though we were out of state, the process went smoothly. We had a lot of fun on the day of. It was strange as someone who usually takes pictures to be on the opposite side of the lens, but I enjoyed it. I've only seen a sneak peek so far, but can't wait to see the rest. I would choose to hire her again, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer in the Athens, GA area.

We had a thoroughly positive experience with Sara for our wedding photos. Even though we had to plan long distance (from Michigan to Athens, GA), Sara made everything stress-free and easy on our big day. Our wedding and reception photos turned out much better than we could've ever expected. Sara and her brother really blended in well with our guests and we didn't really even notice the presence of photographers snapping away. Overall we were more than satisfied and would absolutely recommend Sara again!

Sara Wise Photography exceeded all expectations we had of a photographer. Not only were the photographers great to work with but they were professional, on time, and thorough- always willing to fill in the gaps where necessary. They delivered beautiful pictures. They helped set the wedding timeline. They were completely present during the entire service/ceremony capturing every moment. Couldn't have asked for more.
