Getting married ROCKS! We love that our job is about capturing this really amazing time in a couples life together. We find so much joy witnessing the start of a family because it reminds us of how grateful we are for our own little family, and the happiness and comfort they bring us everyday. We are thrilled when other people find love like the kind we have together and with our adorable kids. It’s why we have chosen to photograph people in love. We are so interested in the power that brings and keeps two people together. We are compelled by stories of love, stories of finding each other and feeling complete and wanting to make a life together. It is those stories that inspire us and make us see the world, and your wedding, in a very unique way. Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We have shot in almost every lighting situation known to man. No matter what, we capture the beauty of your wedding.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We shoot digital with professional Nikon products.
How many photographers do you work with?
Mostly, it is Dustin and I that photograph weddings. Dustin (husband and second photographer extraordinaire) is incredibly talents and seems to know what I need before I do! He's amazing! Once or twice a year I might have the opportunity to have one of my dear photographer friends come shoot a wedding with me. I always tell my clients well in advance to make sure they are comfortable with that. I also occasionally bring along an assistant to help with carrying bags, lighting equipment, etc. depending on the size and conditions of a wedding.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes. Sarah Maren Photographers is more than the name of my company, it's the name on my birth certificate too. You always get me!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We never shoot more than one wedding a day. We do occasionally shoot more than one wedding per weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Absolutely! This is covered in my contract as well. I will tell you though, I have shot a wedding 4 days before having a baby, 4 weeks after having a baby, with the worst flu I've ever had in my life, and with a sprained ankle. It would pretty much take death or full body traction to keep me from shooting your wedding. Still, I cover my bases and have a network of highly capable photographers should something tragic prevent me from being at your wedding.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes! We have back ups for our backups!
Do you charge for travel?
Yes. We have flat rate travel fees that include transportation, lodging and expenses for weddings we have to travel from outside the Sacramento area for.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
We have proofs ready for you within 6-8 weeks of your wedding day.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
There is an online slideshow and gallery of images available initially, and the high resolution images are shipped to you within the week of the gallery going live.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes. I am always the exclusive copyright holder. The happy couple is given a limited release to allow them to make prints where they please.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes. We have been blessed to be featured in various print and online magazines including Style Me Pretty, Rock and Roll Bride, 100 Layer Cake, Real Weddings Magazine, Get Married Magazine, Sacramento Bride and Groom, Northern California Brides Magazine and more. If you are interested in having your wedding published please let us know, and we will happily submit it for you.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
We provide the high resolution digital files and low res, web ready images to our clients. The couple has permission to print images as they please.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. We have a password protected online gallery for each event. The gallery is live for 90 days from the date it is published.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer beautiful, custom designed wedding albums.
When will the client get the final album?
Once the client approves the design, the album is delivered within 90 days.

If you are getting married within a 3-5 hour radius from Sacramento, CA, you are cheating yourself if you don't give Sarah Maren a call. She is an absolute blast, and above all, she is the most talented photographer I've ever encountered. Sarah and her husband went out of their way (and by "out of the way," I mean trekking through the Redwoods after a 5+ hour drive) to make our day special, and she captured every single beautiful moment we shared in an unexplainably magical way. Sarah Maren doesn't see the world as the rest of us do, and her photos give you a glimpse into her genius with every shot. I encourage everyone to (at the very least) consider contacting Sarah Maren for your photography needs because Sarah's photos are timeless and absolutely priceless. After seeing the photos Sarah captured on our wedding day, I would have paid her twice the amount that we paid because that is how perfect her photos were. The photos have awed our family and friends, and people can't look at the pictures without crying because Sarah captured the emotions of that day, and that's something not every photographer can do. Sarah and her husband are hilarious and down-to-Earth which makes them so easy to work with, and it takes the awkwardness out of taking pictures. Sarah doesn't make moments happen; she lets them happen organically, and she captures it. Before you call anyone else, check out Sarah's website/blog and see for yourself!

I met Sarah briefly through a mutual friend a couple of years ago and felt an instant connection, so when our daughter announced plans to marry, Sarah was the first photographer we thought to ask to photograph her wedding.

At our first meeting with Sarah, I was impressed with her thorough knowledge of all things wedding and how at ease she made us feel about the entire process which was so comforting since the wedding was in two months!!!

Honestly, what was the most striking was her humility. At the end of our meeting her words to us were, "If you choose us to capture this event...." I remember thinking, seriously, "If", I didn't need to think about it at all but she allowed me to walk out the door with out any commitment to her. I had seen Sarah's work on her website and was well aware of her talent, so to be treated with such honor and respect showed me her character and how much she just thoroughly enjoys what she does.

The engagement and wedding pictures are stunning. Sarah captured everything about our daughter and son-in-law that represents exactly who they are as a couple. At the end of the wedding and editing of the pictures, we feel as though we have a new friend. She truly cares and had a presence that put all of us at ease. My best advice to any one that hires Sarah to capture those special moments, " Allow Sarah to do what she obviously gifted and talented to do. You will not be disappointed."

Our experience with Sarah Maren Photographers was extremely positive. To be blunt, it was flat out awesome! Sarah and Dustin are two talented and fun photographers. Our engagement and wedding photos turned out so good! So much emotion was captured in our wedding photos that we have no regrets about not hiring a videographer. They made us feel so comfortable when taking our photos too. My husband and I are so grateful that we can relive our wedding day through our pictures. We highly recommend Sarah Maren Photographers!

I can't even begin to say how much I adored Sarah and Dustin. I was so taken with Sarah and her images after my boudoir session with her that I planned my entire wedding around her schedule. She was my #1 priority. They are an incredible couple. Funny, friendly, and so SO talented. I cried more looking at the beautiful pictures that they gave me than I did at my actual wedding! They are absolutely phenomenal. Even my guests fell in love with them, and my best friend hired them for her wedding! Can't recommend them enough!

I highly recommend Sarah Maren for wedding photography! Our experience was seamless and we loved the outcome of both the engagement and wedding pictures. Her and her husband make you feel very comfortable and even if you don't feel natural your pictures will turn out looking like you guys were born to be models! Sarah even broke her arm the day before our wedding, she had a photographer friend help with no additional charge, so we got 3! Sarah didnt even skip a beat despite a huge cast on her good arm, all the pictures were taken and edited just as great as they could be! I've referred to other friends as well already and can't say enough great things!

Sarah Maren is expensive, but SO worth it. We just loved her and everything she did on the day of our wedding. She and her husband Dustin are super cool and easy to talk to - which is definitely something you want on the day of your wedding since they will be around you pretty much all day. =) Seriously - you won't regret having Sarah as your photographer!

Sarah and Dustin do an amazing job together. Their photos are consistently stunning and they are a pleasure to work with. Sarah has a great casual business attitude which always put us at ease and helped all that love show through in the photos. She is very flexible regarding location, and she worked with me on a payment plan that helped make it through some tight times. Everyone loved both our engagement and wedding photos, and I had several people tell me that they were the best engagement photos they had ever seen. Although Sarah was on the upper end of our price range, I am so happy that we chose her and Dustin to shoot our wedding. Photography was one area we were willing to splurge on because it's all that's left after the wedding, and we get so much joy from reliving that day. We will surely be coming back to Sarah for family photos in the future!

Sarah Maren (and her husband/second photographer Dustin) are in one word, AMAZING.

We first went to Sarah about 10 months before our wedding with a very different wedding in mind. We had decided to forgo the stress, money and excitement that is a 'normal' traditional wedding, and we were planning on having a small ceremony at SF City Hall with a reception at a family member's house. We booked Sarah for this purpose, did a fantastic engagement shoot, and then decided that the wedding we were planning wasn't going to work out the way we wanted. Mid year we completely switched gears and ended up planning a 125 person, fairly 'typical' wedding in Walnut Creek. With a new date. Sarah didnt even flinch- she was so helpful with every aspect of our wedding planning, and truly understood our 'vision'. She responds to every email with compassion and friendliness, and really tries to get to know you as a couple.

On the wedding day itself, my only regret is that we had been able to book Sarah for an extra hour, it felt like our picture time was too short! Sarah and Dustin capture moments that you dont even know happened, and they make them beautiful. I love every image we have seen so far. They are so artistic and truly make photography an art- there is nothing normal or average about Sarah's photos.

She is completely worth the price, and is very comparable to other respected artistic photographers that you will research. Sarah really listens to your style and what you are like as a person- if you want glitz and glamor, she will give it to you. If you want rustic and vintage, it's yours.

I really value Sarah more as a friend now than a wedding vendor and I am confident that when we have kids, Sarah will be the one to help us make our picture memories! Love Sarah and Dustin!

One of the best compliements we got was "Your pictures made your wedding look nicer than it actually was...no offense." We decided that the one thing we were going to splurge on for the wedding was a photographer since it's the only thing that's forever...we picked the right team. Sarah and Dustin captured our personality absolutely perfectly and we love every single shot they took. They made us feel comfortable, happy and special. We've recommended them to countless people and will continue to do it.
