Sarah was friendly and professional, and my husband and I felt comfortable with her immediately. Everyone loves the photos, as do I. She shot my engagements and my wedding. Affordable. No hint of shadyness that some photographers pull (you only get ___ shots, etc.). Always responded to my emails the same day, and usually the same hour. My only complaint at all is that in my processional photos, you could see the second shooter, however, I'm a photographer as well so I notice things that most people don't notice and no one else has noticed. Definitely not upset about it. Very pleased with our choice.

Sarah was very responsive both before/after the wedding, professional, and attentive to client needs/preferences. Overall, she was a joy to work with. It's obvious she takes great pride in her work because the photos were truly incredible and reflect our personalities/style so well.

I don't know where to start on how happy we are that we went with Sarah for our photographer. I think choosing a photographer was one of the most important decisions for us in the wedding planning process as choosing a bad photographer can ruin your memories to the biggest day of your life (no pressure, ha). Sarah put us at ease with her amazing talent and professionalism from start to finish of working with her.

From the first meeting, she was organized and professional. Her website is user friendly and has a lovely design that draws you in immediately. Even her contract had some subtle humor in the wording was just another breath of fresh air in the planning process. Her pictures of this romanticism that is unmatched in the Houston area for sure. The "look" of her photography was the exact feel I wanted to my wedding, and I couldn't be happier with the pictures.

During our engagement session (which I highly suggest couples do so your comfortable with her and know how she works), she had a vision and was determined to find us creative shots. She makes you feel comfortable and at ease during the shoot which can be awkward for a lot of couples. I love how her pictures didn't turn out super posey, which I wasn't a fan of with other photographers. She gets the sneak peeks up quickly and it's nice that you don't have to wait long to see the teasers. Additionally, any time I emailed her or called her she had wonderful communication. She answers promptly and is ready with the details you need.

On the wedding day, she's in control, but eerily calm (which what bride wouldn't love that). She's in charge and has a system without being pushy and still having that cute spirit about her. She gets the group bridal shots done quickly and efficiently so you can get into the reception for the good time. She stays in the background throughout the whole reception yet captures these great shots without getting in the way. I would've liked to see her more since she's so fun to be around, but she's so smooth and effortless. :)

I seriously cannot say enough good things about working with her. She's beyond talented and I would tell any bride to go with her because she will be one vendor who you can count on and know you'll get what you pay for! Thanks so much Sarah, you rocked it. :)

I met Sarah a couple years ago at a friends wedding and fell in love with her photos! I had no prospects of marriage at the time, however, come January 2012 when I was engaged, in my mind, she was my only option! She agreed to do our wedding on relatively short notice and did a WONDERFUL job. Everyone who has seen my photos comments on how great they are compared to any wedding photos they've seen.

Sarah was so helpful and calm during what can be a chaotic day. She went with the flow and stayed until every shot requested was taken, down to unpacking her camera when she was ready to go and the officiant showed up to sign the marriage license.

You will be SO THRILLED you went with Sarah - do it! :)

I was looking for years, yes, *years* for the right photographer in Houston! Someone who appreciated natural light as much as I do, someone who captures the details, and someone who understands the organic style of editing. I finally found Sarah McKenzie on Wedding Chicks, emailed her my information and she called me right away! I'm so glad that I found Sarah to document both our engagement shoot and wedding day! She did a fabulous job, was super friendly and fun to work with, and everyone loves the images! Thanks Sarah!

It was an absolute miracle to find Sarah McKenzie as our wedding photographer! Not only was she able to accommodate our extremely short notice(due to a very quickly impending military relocation), but she also managed to provide my husband and I with hundreds of absolutely beautiful photos which I imagine must have been nearly impossible to accomplish considering our entire lack of organization the day of our wedding coupled with the usual chaos surrounding these types of events. Sarah was extremely professional even from the very first email that I wrote to her, and she was overly attentive in responding to every phone call, email, etc. If you are looking for a photographer that will really take the time to learn who you are as a person and to learn what kinds of images you want to remember your perfect day with, then Sarah is the one to go with! She gave my husband and I the personal photos with the vintage flair that we had asked for and we can not thank her enough :) We definitely recommend her to anyone who wants beautiful, better than "average wedding day" photos. Two thumbs up!

Sarah McKenzie Photography was an amazing experience for our wedding. I am the type of person who wants pictures of everything, and Sarah did an UH-MAZING job. Every picture that we recieved was flawless. Her style is exactly what I wanted for my wedding. She was so good at posing the wedding party (and we had 16 people!), and showing them exactly where they should be standing and where there hands should be etc. She takes charge when necessary and makes things happen. I absolutley loved every single wedding picture that we recieved from her. I especially loved the portraits she took of me and my husband. She captured our wedding reception venue and all its beauty perfectly. She made us feel completly comfortable and got the job done quickly but extremly efficiently. I would recommend her to any bride that is getting married. I loved her service, her pictures, her professionalism, and responsivness. Any idea that we had she was more than happy to do. We loved her and would hire her again if we had the choice!!!!

Sarah shot my engagement photos and wedding and both experiences were amazing. She is an extremely talented photographer with a great eye for composing the perfect shot. The entire process of hiring and communicating with her was flawless - she replied immediately to our questions and was always happy to chat either via phone, email or text.

On the day of the wedding she was very calm and organized. She got all of the "must have" shots that I requested and never seemed to break a sweat.

The icing on the cake with Sarah for me is her obvious love for what she does. You can tell she loves creating these memories for people and that makes her creations even more amazing. I can look at the pictures of myself from various points in the night and feel the same emotions that I was experiencing at the time.

Hire her!

Sarah was fun to be around, very relaxed, extremely creative, and her work speaks for itself – outstanding beautiful soft romantic photos that captured the moment in time perfectly. She has an outstanding work ethic, is such a calming presence (all brides – nervous or not – will appreciate that!), and is just a master at her craft. Great communication on and before the big day – she even arrived before I did! It is my pleasure to recommend Sarah McKenzie Photography without hesitation; I’ll never use another photographer again – no one else will ever come close to her photographic style and flair.
