The dress, the flowers, the look on his face -- these are the things you daydream about when it comes to your wedding. But one of the biggest decisions you'll make (apart from the place you'll say "I do" and the dress you'll be wearing) is the photographer who is going to document it for you.

I have the best job in the world - I get to capture your big day as it unfolds so your wedding story can be told for years and years to come. I want you to be able to relive every moment when you look back through your photos, to feel the same emotions you felt that day.

A little about me: My name is Sarah. I grew up in the happiest place in the USA (according to Oprah, anyways). I married my best friend when I was 19 years old. I am inspired by love, light, and people's stories. Though my title is technically "photographer", I think of myself as more of a "storyteller". I am obsessed with the in-between moments, the stolen glances. I've photographed weddings for 6 years, and fall in love with my job a little more each weekend.

I would love to get to know you two, hear your story, and learn what makes you YOU.

There are tons of options for wedding photographers out there but my husband and I could not be more thrilled to have worked with Sarah Kathleen Photography. Like another reviewer mentioned not only is she all the wonderful qualities you want in a photographer: talented, artistic, creative, etc. but she is a wonderful person. She's fun-loving, goofy, and makes you feel so comfortable being in front of a camera lens.

I had a destination wedding in her area and if I ever had a question about finding other vendors she responded so quickly and always encourage me to ask for help when ever I needed it. She is fun to work with while maintaining excellent professionalism. I was in shock with how quickly we got to see our pictures, whether is be a sneak peak on her blog or receiving the beautiful package in the mail. I kind of want to get married again just so I can work with Sarah again, she's really that great! She captured our wedding day even more beautifully than I remember it in my memories and as my memories become more and more faint over time I will always have the most gorgeous interpretation of our day in Sarah's photos.

You know how Pinterest people say, "Pin now, read later!". When it comes to the brilliant, Sarah Kathleen, we say "Book now, shoot later!". It is difficult to review the lovely Sarah because what words do you choose when someone with her talent just does everything so effortlessly. We have never been soo over-the-moon with our engagement photos and wedding photos. These moments only happen once, or at least they should, and not a penny should be spared. She is motivated, up for wherever you take her (yes, she is not opposed to trespassing and chasing zebras) and will most definitely deliver the most beautiful photos you have ever seen....of yourselves! Our family, friends and on-lookers are all just blown away with the photos we have. So stop researching, book her now and you won't have any regrets. We're keeping Sarah close and look forward to having her document all our upcoming milestones!

My husband and I are from Orange County, CA but got married over 4 hours away in Paso Robles, CA, so finding a photographer in that area required us to depend entirely on online reviews and personal websites in order to narrow down our options. The moment I laid my eyes on Sarah's home page I was captivated, and as I moved along to each section my complete awe just grew. Her quirky personality jumped from the pages and her professionalism was undeniable in her beautiful photography, amazing blog and such attention to detail. I did not wait another moment, picked up the phone and hoped she was as wonderful in person as her website suggested. She answered on the second ring and I immediately felt as though I was talking to a life long friend. My husband and I met her a few weeks later and our connection was sealed. She never felt like a vendor I hired, but a dear friend who I could be open and honest with, have a glass of wine with, share personal moments with and just act like a goofball around. This is, of course, extremely important when trying to relax and take photos you will have for the rest of your life. My husband and I came away from our experience with the most amazing wedding/engagement photos to cherish forever, as well as a wonderful friend in Sarah. She is nothing short of the best : )

I could not possibly say enough amazing things about Sarah. When I got engaged, I immediately knew I wanted to have her shoot our wedding. Her compositions and eye for detail are beyond comparison. I had a vision for our engagement shoot and she was so willing and excited to bring it to life! She has a charming way of making you feel so comfortable which ultimately makes your pictures feel more like you than just a spread in a magazine (though they could definitely be that too). I couldn't have been more thrilled with our photos from our engagement session and wedding. She captured so many priceless moments without me ever having to give her any prior direction and it is just so enjoyable to have her around on your special day! Sarah is a true artist and I recommend her 1000%!!

With my husband being a wedding photographer himself, I had very high expectations for who would be the photographer for our wedding. Sarah beat all of our expectations. She radiates joy and positivity which in turn makes for a worry free day. I was concerned that my husband would want to take control and be in charge but due to Sarah's professionalism, creativity, and passion for her clients happiness, he was able to relax and have complete confidence in her work. She did not let us down at all. Our families were so pleased with the final product and could not have been happier. Her photos captivate you and take you back to your wedding every time you look back at them. We just love Sarah!

Sarah Kathleen....oh man where do I start. Not only am I obsessed with her artistic, beautiful, talented work, but I am obsessed with her as a human being. She was born to be an artist.
I found her through networking on the good ol' FB and was in love with the beauty she captures through photography. Once my husband and I got engaged, I knew exactly who I wanted to shoot our wedding. As a photographer myself, I am a bit picky, and she was above and beyond my expectations. Sarah suggested we do an engagement shoot before our wedding, and I would highly encourage all couples to do this prior to your wedding. It helps you loosen up, get to know Sarah, Sarah get to know you. And it's just fun! She wants you, as a couple, to just to be yourselves.
She made us feel very comfortable, which is so important. Especially for my husband. She was so relaxed on the day of our wedding, but directive at the same time. Super important to have a photographer who can direct people calmly for pictures during such a busy day. She helps remind you that your wedding day is about expressing the love between two people and that's what she wants to capture. True emotion. It's just awesome because she does just that.
When I saw our photos for the first time, I was ecstatic. They are magical. I am so grateful to Sarah for capturing our wedding so perfectly, and I cannot believe I have such amazing photos to hold onto forever!

Sarah is a gem! She made our wedding day so special and captured perfectly the love and beauty we wanted our day to be.

Throughout the wedding planning process, she was responsive, easy to talk to, reassuring, and helpful. She became one of my go-to people in planning the schedule for our wedding day and helped guide me with what I might want for photos.

When we shot our "Beloved" session, she put us at ease and made us comfortable in front of the camera, so that on our wedding day we could jump right in to the photos without feeling awkward.

Her turnaround time on editing was quick and she even blogged our wedding while we were on our honeymoon so we had something fun to return to.

Sarah became not only a vendor, but a friend and I highly recommend her as a photographer.
