In the endless pursuit to document my own life, I have developed a deep appreciation for the idea of creating history through imagery for future generations. During my early years in Primary School I strived to understand the concepts of using photography as a story telling art form. I can still recall the extreme fervor, excitement, and happiness this gave me at such a young age.


One of the most powerful experiences in my life was my own wedding day. Very unexpectedly, the intense emotion of that day came over me as the wedding date grew closer. For me, it was not only a celebration of my commitment to my husband, Darius, but also of our families. It was an opportunity to hug my 3 dearest uncles from California and to weep in joy at seeing my closest childhood friend who now lives in a distant country. More than anything though, it was the day I married the man of my dreams. The experience was completely indescribable.



It is a joyous honor in my life to be able to share in such a unique experience in the lives of others. Knowing how important my own wedding images are to me, I work to capture others moments with care and sensitivity, photographing every wedding as if it were my own. Read less

Sarah is amazing.
We had to schedule two different engagement session times due to weather and my husband living out of town at the time. She was very accommodating and flexible with our needs. Our pictures were unique and captured our personalities and relationship.
Sarah has a kind and humorous personality, which is great for a photographer. We never felt awkward with her when taking pictures. She instructed where needed and yet let us do our own thing.
The day of the wedding Sarah and her second shooter spent HOURS taking photos. Every photo I requested was taken and then some. They were both a pleasure to be around the whole day. Many times they lightened the mood for me when I was starting to get nervous. Also our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed their instruction, presence, smiles, and jokes.
The photographs themselves are beyond gorgeous. Sarah is a true artist. My father - a previous photography major - is extremely critical of photography. The first time he saw Sarah's work I was very nervous because I knew I wanted to use her and I was praying he would love her as much as I did. He looked at her pictures and asked her one question about her photography philosophy. Her answer was in short that she liked to tell a story with her photography - this was important to her. There is a history and story to tell in every photo and it was her job to portray it. As we walked away I asked him how he liked her. His answer was, "She's amazing and her answer was perfect. You have your photographer."
I can't tell you the amount of compliments I have gotten on my engagement and wedding photos - even though I have only seen 5 because I got married 3 weeks ago. I have handed out more of her cards and given more people her contact information than I can remember.
I highly recommend Sarah Babcock as a wedding photographer. There is no one else I would want to tell the story of my wedding because I know it is going to be beautifully documented.

oh, how I love Sarah. I have not seen our wedding photos yet, however based on our engagement photos and the one teaser we have seen so far, I cannot wait to see how she captured our wedding. I am a wedding photographer in Chicago and have been for 13 years. I knew I needed to find someone I could completely trust to do their thing so I could forget about photos for a day and just be a bride.

I also wanted to find someone like myself who shoots very natural light and captures things organically as they happen and mostly captures emotion as well as beautiful moments. Well Sarah does this and then some. I cannot explain as a photographer how Sarah does what she does, but it is gorgeous and she brings something to the table that is unique and truly captures the love that was filled during our wedding all night.

She and Kitty were invisible, I barely noticed them throughout the night, but I knew they were getting every moment. They were professional, yet fun, easy, quick and inconspicuous. I will probably need to add to this when I see the photos, but I can tell you already I am going to be in love with them.

Love Love Loved the pictures Sarah took of our daughter's wedding. She spent the afternoon and evening to cover pre ceremony, ceremony and reception, and we never really knew she was there! GREAT candid shots of not only the wedding party but of all the guests as well. She has a creative eye that really took advantage of the reception site to pose the wedding party and family shots. Highly recommend her services to anyone in the Dayton area!

Sarah is an absolutely amazing photographer! She is so talented, creative, and kind! We were coming in from out of town for our wedding and she captured the moment beautifully! The pictures she took were so unique and creative yet classic! Along with her talent for capturing the moment she is such a kind hearted, joyous person! Normally I feel very awkward having my pictures taken but she made me feel so comfortable! I would recommend her to any and everyone and will most definitely use her again!

Sarah and her second photographer, Sarah, were wonderful to work with. They took the time to listen to what my Groom and I wanted in our engagment and wedding photos. They were fun to spend the day with and received many compliments during the wedding. I would highly recommend this team to any bride & groom looking for quality photos and people!!!

Sarah was the photographer for our wedding and we are so glad that we picked her. Not only is she a great photographer, but she has a fun and energetic personality. By the time of our wedding, it really felt like we had a friend of ours taking the pictures rather than just some professional we've met a couple of times before. She made us very comfortable with the camera and I think the quality of the photos benefited from it.

Sarah's photography skills are top-notch and I think her work speaks for itself. We were really happy that she included a 2nd photographer. It helped capture every moment and they didn't miss a single thing.

We received a video compilation of the photos, which we loved sharing with our friends and family. Not long after, we were sent a disc with all of the unwatermarked images to use however we like. Her communication leading up to the event was great and it was never hard to get a hold of her. She was very professional and I would recommend Sarah to anyone who needs a photographer.

I could not be happier with our engagement and wedding photographs - they are everything I wanted! Sarah is very friendly and personable, and she is great to work with. She captured all parts of our day perfectly. We highly recommend her!

Sarah Babcock Studios was a great choice for my engagement photos and wedding day photos. She was flexible and went above and beyond just being a photographer. On my wedding day both photographers work well together and helped make the day go smooth without being to pushy. They took some amazing shots from angles that you would have never thought of and of things and people that you would always want to remember!

I was totally impressed, and that's hard to do. She made us look great—better than I thought we could! Her creativity is impressive, and her photographic skills trump the competition. I would highly recommend her to others looking for a high-quality photographer.

Sarah Babcock was a refreshing find in a sea of wedding vendors. Sarah provided both engagement and wedding photography for us and we couldn't have been more pleased with either.
Both of these sessions involved unique ideas, important details, and questionable weather. Sarah (and her staff) met these challenges with enthusiasm and flexibility capturing each moment in the best possible light...no pun intended. She creatively used rain, dim lighting, etc. to capture and tell the story of our event(s).
It is also worth noting that after deciding upon Babcock Studio as our photographer we elected not to use a videographer. Sarah's attention to detail and the quality of her photo-journalistic shooting style made this an unnecessary expense...in our mind's eye. It is amazing how well both emotions and details were captured in still shots creatively using light, lenses, etc. We can honestly say the samples we viewed during our initial meetings, while unique to their venues, were accurate examples of what we now have as our personal memories. Sarah makes a point of only booking one event per day assuring her personal presence (and standards) at your event.
Sarah comes to the table with a contagious level of energy that is helpful given the relative stress of a wedding day. This kept us, the wedding party and relatives engaged. She was accommodating to our time line and last minute amendments to our plan, assuring us that capturing our event well was her priority.
We really enjoyed our experience and hope you will too!

Sarah was an integral part of our wedding- not only did she capture everything beautifully but she also provided moral support and advise for me during the process because she has relationships with many vendors. She even carries emergency bride supplies! The cost was also totally worth it because those photos are the best mementos we will have from the wedding for us and our future family to enjoy. We could not have found a better photographer! I recommend her all the time!

Sarah was definitely a pleasure to work with on our wedding day! The whole wedding process can be stressful and I swear that Sarah was one of the reasons why the whole planning process and day went smoothly. From the moment we hired her, she was attentive, creative, and detailed. She showed up on our special day with a smile and was joking around which helped set the mood for the day. She really understood the vision our of our day and I could not be happier with the pictures she took.

Wedding pictures should tell the story of the people being photographed. They should reflect the love between both people, the chemistry and the playfulness. Sarah Babcock Photography is able to do this in the most amazing way. She gets to know each couple individually to be able to capture their personalities and create a unique experience that you can look back on years away and know exactly how you were feeling.

Sarah and her assistant (who I jokingly referred to as S2) were fantastic. I could have been considered a very laid back bride who just wanted to go with the flow. Sarah made sure that no detail was missed and every aspect of our wedding and reception was photographed. Looking back through the pictures (and there were lots) it was like reliving the day. She worked diligently to get to know my husband and I and it shows in our pictures. Two thumbs up!

Sarah was wonderful to work with - she was extremely professional and friendly throughout the entire process. We budgeted to spend most on photography, and Sarah did not let us down. She took so many amazing photos that it took us several hours to go through. The products we purchased in the package, such as two photo albums and thank you notes, were beautifully done. Sarah was very patient and willing to listen to our needs and requests - much appreciated!

Sarah was absolutely amazing. I would consider myself a picky bride and Sarah was the perfect choice for us. She is an amazing photographer but also has a design background so we ended up with gorgeous pictures that told our story in a way that was exactly what we wanted--both modern and timeless. She also had a great attitude throughout our engagement pictures and wedding day and was my personal cheerleader through it all.

We would use Sarah again without a second thought!

Sarah was absolutely AMAZING! She is so fun to work with and really open to brainstorming ideas of where to shoot and what poses. We went everywhere from the Contemporary Arts Center to Great American Ballpark for our engagement session - she even came up with one of my favorite pictures just shooting my husband and I leaning against our car on 3rd Street!

On our wedding day, Sarah's team was so fantastic, they were keeping everyone energized and the bridal party and my family loved working with them - she also didn't take forever and keep us long - and she was having fun right along with us!

The photos were fabulous - she excels both in the more editorial style as well as posed group shots - I love the candids that she took and the album she put together for us was amazing.

Also she is a great value, because she gives you the CDs of your engagement session and wedding to print at your leisure - she even creates a slideshow to music that she posted on facebook and then sent to me so I could put it in a digital frame for my parents and in-laws.

I would definitely recommend Sarah for any special occasion photography - My husband is already thinking about the next time we can use her!
