Sarah met with us to discuss what we wanted and to learn about our wedding location and all the details well in advance of the date. She kept in touch and follow-up the week before the wedding. Everything was perfect. She and her assistant arrived as scheduled, captured all the informal moments that we wanted, and focused on making sure she captured impromptu shots of all our guest. Just what we wanted. As promised we received a flash drive with all our pictures and selected the ones we wanted printed. We love the creative shots she took of the decor, our rings, shoes, ties, flowers, etc.......not to mention there were at least two shots of us together that by themselves were worth the total fee!......and she sent us a nice gift wrapped box with several wallet sized of one of our favorite pictures....a great surprise.

Having our wedding photographed by Sarah and her assistant was great! It was wonderful to have two photographers around that day catching everything they could.
Great things about Sarah Heppell Photography:
Fast responses to emails
Friendly
Caring and Flexible
Easy to be around
Professional
2 Shooters
and so much more!

Something that really impressed me was the when I met up with Sarah to pick up our flash drive of pictures, I didn't get just a standard flash drive from Staples! I got this beautiful wooden flash drive that said "The Best Day Ever" on the front of it. Not only that but it was wrapped up in this beautiful box inside a cute bag. She also gave me a few cute photos of us that I was not expecting. This was such a nice little touch that she had. I loved it!

If you want a great experience and photos, then choose Sarah Heppell Photography!

Sarah took the most amazing photos. There is one of our groomsmen that was so cool its being shared by everyone we know. She makes you feel comfortable from the start. Beginning with the consultation through the engagement photos, through the wedding itself she is just awesome! Her second shooter Jen is equally awesome. They were both worth every penny. I would hire them again in an instant.

Sarah and Jenn provided us with exceptional photos of our wedding and an engagement sitting. Sarah was very flexible with her schedule.

We were very pleased with the photos and packaging of the thumb drive with our images. Both photographers captured the spirit of our event.

I recommend Sarah to all my friends needing photo services.

I am so happy we chose Sarah Heppell as our photographer. I was originally going with a friend of a friend... who, to make a long story short, turned out to be an absolute nightmare! Sarah was so accommodating and patient with everything, my crazy work schedule and all of my questions. After having our engagement session and seeing how amazing she made us look and feel, we knew we had nothing to worry about. What a relief! On the day of our wedding Sarah and her second shooter, Jenn, were amazing! As with all weddings there was an issue starting the ceremony on time which sort of rushed everything after it. But Sarah and Jenn moved quickly and really rolled with the punches. I have to admit that I was worried that we didn't get enough of the traditional pictures but as it turned out we actually did! Between the two of them multitasking I am so proud of how great our wedding photos came out! It takes a true professional and person with experience and talent to calmly handle a situation like that. She finished editing our photos in such a quick amount of time. I have been so pleased with all of her services. I will recommend her to ANYONE. She is talented, affordable, and confident. Her photos speak for themselves. Thank you Sarah Heppell!!! <3

Sarah was more than we could ask for and more! Here are the things we liked about Sarah:

- She made us and everyone super-comfortable which translated into our photos
- We got the originals of our photos
- E-session included
- Second shooter included
- offers a tattooed bride discount
- knows what is new and fresh with wedding photography
- fast response to emails and phone calls

Our photographer was by far the most expensive part of our wedding. That being said, you get what you pay for. My best friend got married last year and got a good deal for her photographer, but the photographer didn't get a single shot of her entire dress. Yikes!

I knew Sarah and I would get along right from the start. The fact that she offers a "tattooed bride" discount is awesome! It just goes to show how cool and down to earth she is. Sarah actually contacted me when I registered on Syracusewedding.com to tell me about herself and her photography services. At the time, I was living in Baldwinsville which is where her office is located. How convenient! She was extremely flexible in setting up our first meeting with her (and for any appointment there after). As soon as my husband Tom and I left our first meeting with Sarah, we were figuring out in the car when we could make the deposit to book her. Needless to say she made a great first impression.

We had our engagement session in Franklin Square which is just a great spot and Sarah knew the best places to shoot. Our pictures came out great. Even during the whole planning process, Sarah took the time out of her busy schedule to check in on us and make sure all the planning was going ok. When it was time for our final meeting about 4 days before the wedding, she was flexible enough to meet me at Great Northern Mall because it happened to be the night of the guys tuxedo fitting and my 4 year old son needed to come with me. So she met me in the food court so he could hang out in the play area.

I can't not express how happy Tom and I are with our wedding photos. They are absolutely amazing. Sarah and Jenn captured every single important moment and more. They took so many beautiful shots at the ceremony and the reception candid shots were great. Sarah is extremely creative so when we told her we could use the horse track for some photos at the reception, she totally lit up!

I would recommend Sarah Heppell Photography to anybody, Sarah is such a great person to work with and she will make your day so much easier knowing that she is there to capture every special moment.

She was willing to work with us on creating a package to meet our needs and flexible to work with our schedule. We would highly recommend her to others!

Choosing a photographer was easy for us, since Sarah and her second shooter, Jenn, were the photographers at my brother's wedding. Judging by their photos, I knew we could not go wrong! Working with them was great from the first meeting. Unfortunately we did not have time for an engagement photo session, but through correspondence, several meetings, and her questionnaire we were very comfortable with each other on the wedding day. I was surprised at how quickly Sarah was able to edit our photos, and there are so many great shots. They captured all the details that were important to us. As far as cost goes, her prices are more than reasonable... I highly recommend Sarah Heppell Photography!

Sarah and Jenn were fantastic! I travel for a living, and had to do most of my wedding consultation with Sarah over the internet. She was super flexible about finding times to talk, and when I came home with three weeks to the wedding, went our of her way to make sure we could meet up in person. She even let me be a control freak, and hand her a bunch of paperwork I had made up with photo schedules (which went out the window the day of because I was running way behind - but even then, she worked with the time we had to make sure we still got all the photos I wanted!)

My wedding itself may have been a photographers worst nightmare - 14 people in the bridal party, 21 people onstage for the wedding...oh, and the wedding itself was under stage lighting! Crazy! Sarah and Jenn were awesome and even came to the rehearsal the day before to make sure they knew what was going on and what kind of angles they could get with the stage and the lighting. They were really easy to work with, and put everyone in the wedding party at ease, so we didn't have to worry about fake smiles and awkward moments (except for the planned ones!)

It's been less than three weeks since my husband and I got married, and Sarah has already set up a gallery for us to see our finished wedding photos...crazy fast, from what I've heard from other brides! And, to top everything off, she managed to capture several of the most perfect pictures. My husband and I always seem to look better in candid shots. Sarah managed to catch several moments that look like they could be posed, but are so natural, you wouldn't be able to tell they're posed, except for how perfect they are.

I would highly recommend Sarah Heppell Photography to any bride looking for beautiful art, a unique eye, and an easy going demeanor in a photographer.

Sarah Heppell was wonderful to work with. We had never met due to my living in Texas and me only coming up to NY for my wedding. We communicated through email and any time I had questions, she was quick to respond. She takes awesome photographs too!!! Totally worth the $ - and very affordable. Which is hard to find ladies!!

What was most appealing about Sarah Heppell Photography was the detailed thoughtfulness of the staff. I got married during the busy wedding season, over a holiday weekend to boot, and I always felt like my wedding was a priority to the photographer (even though I know she had several other clients simultaneously!). Sarah took the time to get to know me and my groom individually, and make sure our wedding photography captured our personalities and what was special & specific to us, rather than just providing standard, typical, generic pictures.

Sarah Heppell Photography replied to every email and phone call of mine (and believe me, as the wedding drew closer, there were many emails and phone calls!) in an extremely timely manner. She was always open to new ideas, very helpful, and flexible/willing to adapt, even at the last minute.

Sarah provided many different package options/choices and was willing to work with us on pricing, which is another fine example of how she works with each couple individually and doesn't just lump all brides together during the busy season.

On the wedding day, she arrived early, and she had even made a trip to the venue the week before just to get ideas and make sure she had all the correct equipment given the lighting at the site.

The photographs arrived less than a month after the wedding and have brought continuous joy to my family everyday since. As my first anniversary approaches, I find myself still looking at the pictures every week consistently, always really pleased with the results, and never feeling like something is missing.

Photography is one of the most important and stressful aspects of wedding planning, so it was a huge relief to work with this vendor. By the time the wedding arrived, I considered Sarah a friend and felt like she was at my wedding as a welcome guest more-so than a staff member. This was an unexpected delight! She remained encouraging throughout the planning process and always took my inquiries seriously. I appreciated that she treated my wedding as something that she was excited to attend, even writing on my facebook wall the morning of with plenty of exclamation points!, rather than as a work chore.

Her enthusiasm and creativity is unparalleled, and I enjoy staying in touch with her now and seeing all of the new weddings she does, each one making me reminisce about my own. Highly, highly recommend !!!

Sarah is a wonderful photographer and very easy to work with. Even now, almost two years after my wedding, friends and family are still impressed with Sarah's pictures. She did a great job of not only taking good pictures of me and my husband, but also some of the best pictures I've seen of everyone that was there.
