I love shooting weddings! I am so honored to be able to capture those special moments at your wedding that I know will be cherished and revisited for a lifetime. My work is a combination of personal documentary images that will tell the story of your day plus a healthy dose of creative and flattering portraits... I also make sure to create artistic photographs that will preserve the beautiful details and atmosphere of your event. The resulting collection of images will be comprehensive in it's ability to transport you back to the wedding day, evoking emotion and smiles throughout the decades to come.

I currently offer several collections with coverage starting at $4500, and I offer a range of albums, print collections and framed or mounted wall pieces to suit various tastes. I shoot all weddings myself (limited # per year) and always bring an assistant photographer. Please contact me for more information and a current menu detailing the collections I offer as well as my philosophy, approach, process, and so forth. Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, all.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital.
How many photographers do you work with?
1 of my 2 assistant photographers joins me at every wedding unless we're talking about a tiny ceremony/elopement.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never. I limit my wedding bookings to 20 per year so I can provide excellent personal service and attention to each couple (and maintain my passion for shooting / avoid burnout!).
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I am a member of several professional wedding photographer networks and should I be injured seriously just before your wedding I will do my best to provide you with a replacement. In the worst case scenario my assistant photographer would shoot the event himself. My assistants are capable young photographers with their own budding businesses, and he will already be available (as he was planning on 2nd shooting with me anyway).
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Cameras, professional lens set, lighting of various kinds, tripod and lightstands, backup equipment for all, etc.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
ALWAYS
Do you charge hourly or full day?
A la carte menu provides you with custom options to fit the hours of coverage and options you want.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
yes. contact me for current rates.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
My contract includes a 20 minute meal break with an entree (vegetarian, hot meal) provided by the client's caterer for any booking over 4 hrs long. I find that eating while the guests are eating is best as people don't like to be photographed generally at this time anyway (mouths full, busy, etc).
Do you charge for travel?
Travel is included for all Weddings within a 90 mile radius of NYC. Custom fees will be assessed for further distances.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Within 2 weeks you will see a sneak-peak mini-album tagged on Facebook (if you have an account), a blogpost of favorites, and a highlight slideshow on Vimeo that you can send to friends and family. The full gallery of images in a password protected website will be available by the end of those 2 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Online gallery, password protected.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Web gallery with print-ordering options is up for 1 year.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
My standard hourly rates include images on disc with a document of rights to print in perpetuity for personal use.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Various styles from 500$-$2500+ (everything from flush mount leatherbound custom designs to simple monograph-style coffee-table books). Smaller parent gift copies are available at reasonable rates for most album and book styles.
When will the client get the final album?
Once you've approved your design and selected cover materials and imprinting styles, etc, it generally takes 6-8 weeks for me to get the Album back from the bookmaker, at which point presuming everything looks right I will make an appointment for you to pick it up at my studio. I like to be there to see your face when you are looking through it for the first time!

Sarah was amazing to work with. She shot my Tarrytown Wedding this summer and I couldn't be happier. The day of our wedding she showed up early to scope out first look locations. She found beauty in the most odd locations - She actually had me jumping in a bouncy castle in my wedding dress. She captured every moment and feeling throughout the entire day/evening.

When my fiance and I got engaged and began looking for a photographer for our wedding, we assumed all "good" photographers would deliver a similar product, but when we saw Sarah's previous work we realized we were wrong - her work and demeanor stood out to us above the rest. From our engagement shoots to the wedding and post-wedding processing, we have been impressed and delighted with the quality of Sarah's work, her professionalism and her friendliness. Sarah and her assistant managed to capture all of the special big and little moments of our wedding, while blending in seamlessly with the crowd. It was like they were in 10 places at once! After the wedding I was so excited to see the photos but assumed it would take a while... so when I woke up the morning after the wedding to a sneak peak of 10 awesome shots that she'd sent over at 5:30am, I was really impressed. And we got the rest of the photos so quickly! Sarah was fun to work with, and the value we got for what we paid exceeded my expectations. I will definitely go to Sarah for other major life milestones that we want captured in photo.

Words cannot express our wonderful experience working with Sarah. My wife and I are thrilled we choose Sarah to photograph our wedding. Everyone who has seen our engagement photos and/or the wedding photos cannot stop raving about how great Sarah captured our special day. She is a true artist which is why we choose her. We didn’t want a photographer who had their staged shots. We also didn’t want a “wedding factory photographer” who only saw us as a paycheck. We were amazed that when we received our photos within weeks of the wedding. We have heard horror stories from friends not having their wedding photos 6 months after their event. Not the case with Sarah.

Sarah is not one of those pushy photographer stuck in her ways. After a while we forgot she was there. She was a fly on the wall documenting our precious moments with family and friends. She captured details and intimate photos that we’ll cherish for our entire marriage. Sarah went above and beyond our expectations with extra little touches.

I would recommend any and everyone to use Sarah Tew for their weddings. You would be hard pressed to find a better, more affordable, professional, and personable photographer in the NYC area.

Sarah was AWESOME!!! Our wedding was 6 days ago and throughout the week she posted up "sneak peeks" of our wedding photos. She finished posting everything up online today and everyone can view our beautiful photos! We love how the pictures came out and she really paid attention to everything throughout the night. She also took our engagement photos, which also came out beautifully. Thank you, Sarah!!! Our wedding venue was tiny and was not well-lit, but you'd never know from Sarah's pictures! She also took amazing pictures of our dog, who somehow didn't freak out at the wedding. SWEET!

Sarah is absolutely awesome. We are 1000% percent pleased with how all of our wedding and engagement photos turned out - though from the moment we met Sarah, we knew this would be the case. She is incredibly talented. Her photos have such a natural, bright feel to them, which is what drew us to her in the first place... but, we never thought anyone could make us look as good as she has!!! My jaw truly dropped when I first saw the photos, as they are breathtaking.

On top of being so talented, Sarah is truly the most responsive vendor I worked with through the whole process of planning my wedding. I knew I would like her when my first e-mail to her on a Friday night at midnight was answered within an hour, with tons of useful information - and every moment of working with her since then has been just the same! She made us completely comfortable with the whole process, and was so sweet and thoughtful the entire time.

I really cannot recommend Sarah highly enough. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, then absolutely look no further!

I came across Sarah's work because she had photographed another couple's wedding at our venue while we were on the hunt for vendors. I looked over all the reviews I could find online, and as a cynical New Yorker, I was a bit worried that some were faked because across the board, they were all so positive.

Well, our experience with Sarah has been nothing short of five stars. From our initial meeting, to my endless barrage of emails that she always responded to so quickly, to our engagement photo shoot, to the big day, she was exceptionally professional, understanding, and fantastic to work with.

I really wasn't interested in an engagement shoot, but since it's part of her package, I figured why not. I have to say that I'm glad that this is not a negotiable part of her service, because it was great to work with her in advance of our wedding day. The engagement shoot was casual and fun and allowed us all to get to know one another in a low-key, low-pressure atmosphere. She has a great eye for what would make an interesting image and gives really clear direction to those of us not used to being in front of the camera.

After seeing the beautiful photos from our engagement shoot, we were so excited to see what Sarah would do with our wedding. True to form (and all of the other five star reviews), she was on time, unobtrusive and endlessly professional. The photos that she captured are so beautiful and will be a gorgeous reminder of an incredibly special day. All of our friends and family have been absolutely blown away by the photos Sarah took. Also, her turnaround time is incredible - we had a sneak peek of our photos by the morning after our wedding. While we sat at brunch with our family and friends, everyone was marveling at Sarah's beautiful work.

Sarah is fantastic, and we cannot recommend her highly enough.

Sarah Tew is an amazing photographer and wonderful person to work with for your wedding.

We cannot say enough about Sarah. From our initial meeting to reviewing the wedding photos she took, we were so pleased to have used her services. We are a very private couple so felt that taking engagement photos would be cheesy and awkward. Sarah put us to ease and made us feel comfortable. She structured our engagement shoot around our preferences and didn't make us get into any cheesy poses -- she just captured us being ourselves.

We found that she was really responsive as the year went on toward our wedding and made sure she stayed on top of us to get her feedback for what shots we wanted etc. She was really on the ball. And the day of, she was such a blast to work with. She took absolutely AMAZING photos. And her photobooth was such a hit with our guests.

We highly recommend Sarah Tew. She is such an artist and such fun to work with. Also, she was very helpful in working with our budget. We're also a same-sex couple and felt absolutely comfortable with Sarah.

Thanks Sarah!!!

Sarah is the most amazing photographer. She came highly recommended to me by my friend who wanted to use her for her own wedding, but sadly Sarah was already booked for the date. Lucky for me, I was able to lock her in for our wedding! The results --- the most amazing set of wedding photos I have ever seen. Sarah captured our special day in a way only a true artist could. We have hundreds of perfect photos, all of which were turned around to us within a week or so of our wedding! Who does that?!?! The bottom line is Sarah is simply the best. You will not regret signing her up for your own big day.

Sarah Tew is THE BEST photographer to hire for your wedding and or engagement photos. Not only is she super hands on, but her style and technique is top notch, and not your average cookie cutter photographer.

Most of our friends have gotten married recently and by far, our photos blew everyone out of the park!

Sarah is sweet, super responsive and helpful, and will make sure your photos are everything you want and more!

Sarah Tew is not just a talented photographer... she is an artist. Sarah shot my daughter's wedding July, 2013. Sarah captured EVERYTHING. Not just the beautiful venue, dresses, etc... She captured the emotion of the event. She did the same with my daughter's engagement photos. Sarah doesn't force anything out of her wedding parties... she sees who they are through her lens and she captures that. No phony, generic wedding poses... Her camera celebrates the event with you. She's based in Long Island City...but I urge you to transport her wherever your wedding is...she is worth it. She also does AMAZING album designs. And her photo booth set up is terrific. AW

I highly recommend Sarah Tew Photography. Sarah is an awesome person and an immensely talented artist who runs a great business.

I've never been a fan of engagement portraits - the ones I've seen have tended to have a saccharine, stiff feel that I've found off-putting. Sarah Tew's engagement portraits are completely unlike the others I've seen. Sarah made the afternoon fun and relaxed. She took photos that captured our personalities - both individually and as a couple. Every photo was fantastic.

In the months leading up to our wedding, Sarah was in frequent contact with us. It was clearly important to her that she understand the atmosphere we were going for, and what aspects of the celebration were most important to us. On the day of the wedding, Sarah was a pleasure to work with. She took full advantage of the gorgeous surroundings, and took a series of beautiful, unique portraits. Her photos of the ceremony and reception truly captured the joy of the day, and all of the moments I want to remember. Sarah also designs her clients' wedding albums, and is completely open to any adjustments. You won't need to make many, though...she has a great eye for design, and for the photos that work best together.

Sarah Tew is absolutely the best at what she does.

Sarah is an amazing photographer. First and foremost, in terms of how the photos came out from our wedding (and engagement shoot), we couldn’t be happier. They were absolutely gorgeous. All of our family and friends commented on how amazing they were, saying things like “they look like they belong in a magazine!” Every time we look at the photos, we see something new – she truly captured the emotion, joy, excitement – in a way that I don’t think many other photographers would have.
Beyond the final product of gorgeous photos, however, was Sarah’s customer service. She responds promptly to emails and was full of helpful advice all throughout the wedding planning process. She had lots of great ideas throughout the entire process, from the “unplugged wedding” to suggesting that we incorporate our kittens into our engagement shoot. And on the wedding day itself, she was scheduled to begin shooting us at 2pm in our hotel – not only did she arrive a few minutes early, but she had first gone (on her own time) to our wedding venue to scout the perfect locations for our pre-wedding photos. Throughout the night, she and her second shooter were everywhere – never getting in anyone’s way, yet never hesitating to climb up on a ladder or lay down on the ground for the perfect shot. All of which showed in the final results! Finally, we must mention her turn-around time! Our reception concluded about an hour and a half outside of NYC at 11pm, and by 4am that morning, she had a handful of the best photos up on Facebook! The full set was made available to us online within the week and the proof books and discs were mailed shortly thereafter (arriving before we had even gotten back from our honeymoon).
In short, if you want amazing wedding photos with great customer service to match, you can’t go wrong by hiring Sarah. We can’t recommend her highly enough!

Words cannot describe how happy we were to see our wedding photos less than 48 hours after we got married. For 2 very camera-shy people, Sarah and her assistant Nick put us so at ease that we had no issues making out in the middle of Manhattan for our wedding portraits! Having met Sarah only 2 days before the wedding because I was planning this wedding long distance, I was completely reassured by her organization, her prompt responsiveness and super positive attitude! She was even accomodating towards my concerns for privacy and on the day of the wedding, kept time more punctually than even I did (esp after the nerves took over). Getting Sarah as our photographer was the second best thing we did that day, apart from marrying each other. Hire her. Just do it.

I honestly never write online reviews - but just back from our honeymoon and we've received so many compliments from friends and family about our amazing photos, I wanted to share our great experience with sarah. I remember just a year ago - I was poring thru online reviews of photographers and hope this will help some brides out there. we were so happy with sarah (and her 2nd shooter - also sarah!) she caught the true feel of our wedding as well as so many natural moments. I typically don't love photos of myself and was really thrilled with how flattering the photos were. our expectations were truly exceeded.. (and they were pretty high to begin with)

Also - we woke up the day after the wedding to a "sneak peak" of photos which was so exciting to email to friends just hours after the wedding - I still can't believe sarah posted that before she went to sleep after the wedding.

We had Sarah Tew shoot our wedding in Greenwich, CT at the end of September, and my husband and I couldn't be more thrilled with how the pictures came out! Sarah is so incredibly talented and captured each important moment (and so many others!) so perfectly, we were truly blown away when we saw the photos!  Sarah and her crew arrived early, were totally inobtrusive but also so professional, organized, accommodating and really creative!  Sarah was in touch several times before the big day to make sure she had all of the logistics and photo lists correct, which made the actual pictures a breeze because she had everyone organized and ready to go. We got wonderful photos of every group we had asked for, both in traditional poses as well as some more creative and fun set-ups...Like many brides, I'd put a lot of time into some small DIY projects and details, and Sarah took the time to get shots of every single element of the wedding decor in all its glory -- her photos of the tablescapes and the other details literally look like they came from a magazine, I almost can't believe they are from my wedding!!! Last (but NOT least!), I was especially impressed at Sarah's unique ability to take photos of my husband and I that were romantic, sweet, fun and creative without being corny or cheesy, which was so important to me. I can't explain how she did it, but the pictures of the two of us are breathtaking and romantic but also genuine and authentic to who we are...This was one of the main reasons we chose Sarah, and she really nailed it beyond our wildest expectations. OH and I have to add that Sarah was a pleasure to work with, and even helped me with an old photo project I did for the wedding! She also sent us a highlights album at 4am the morning after our wedding - just a few examples of the MANY ways she went above and beyond for us :) Hiring Sarah was absolutely one of the best decisions we made for this wedding, and I would enthusiastically recommend her to any bride!

Where do I begin? From soup to nuts Sarah was the consummate professional. From the moment we met all the way to the box we just received upon our return from our honeymoon -- Sarah dots all "i"'s and crosses all "t"'s. If you pick Sarah, not only will you end up with the MOST amazing pictures (trust me, you'll look better than you thought you looked!), but you will have peace of mind that she will get the job done without drama and with great results!
I have gotten such great feedback on the photographs and so many compliments on the photos. Plus now that I see all the shots, I am amazed at how much she caught, considering I never saw her throughout the reception!
I promise you, you will NOT be disappointed. Sarah is great - and if you've gotten to the point of reading reviews - just go with her, you won't be sorry!
Good luck and congratulations! :)

The top portion of my list of 'good decisions I made in life' would include (a) moving to Amsterdam for college, (b) asking my wife out on a date two and a half years ago and (c) hiring Sarah as our photographer for our wedding.

Let's start with the pre-wedding activities. Sarah is a consummate professional and on top of things. She asks in great details the 'itinerary' for the day (i.e. all of the family & wedding party portraits we wish to take) to ensure that we will be on time for the ceremony; scheduled a meeting with us to understand what type of shots we are looking for, and whether there are certain details that we love that she should not miss. She is very responsive and flexible. We wanted to swap our 'engagement' session with the open air photo booth, that request was accepted without any hassle. All of the e-mails and phone calls were returned within 24 hours.

On the day she did everything she promised and had a good command of the situation. She used time very smartly (my portraits were taken during idle time after I was done signing the marriage certificate), responded well to requests from family members while keeping us moving along within the designated time.

Most importantly, we loved the pictures she took. They really capture the emotions, the feelings and the energy of the day. I recommend potential clients to browse through her website and let her work speaks for her. As importantly, she is a very positive person who is very easy to work with. I cannot stress how important this in terms of making the day enjoyable. Who wants to be bossed around on your wedding day, right? Sarah was kind, funny, friendly, and great to have around.
Finally, she's quick to process the pics. Around midnight after the wedding she already posted a few pictures as 'sneak peek' (my facebook addicted friends appreciated that!); followed by more pictures on her blog about a week later.
Hiring her was one of the best investments I ever made.

Sarah Tew is great! We are so happy with how our photos came out. As soon as I saw our engagement shots I knew we had picked the right photographer and it was one thing I wouldn't have to worry about the day of the wedding. My husband and I are very picky as far as aesthetics go (an architect and an artist, respectively) and Sarah just has the eye, talent and experience to take gorgeous, interesting photos. It doesn't hurt that she's a really sweet person too.

If you are getting married in New York- HIRE SARAH TEW AS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER. She is the sweetest, most professional photographer you could ask for. AND her photos are beautiful. She made us comfortable behind the camera, even though we don't generally love the spotlight. I would also take Sarah's rec to do an engagement shoot before the wedding, to give you time to get to know and work with Sarah before the big day. Since hiring Sarah for our wedding, we have also had her shoot a birthday party and plan to use her for all future happy occasions.

I loved my experience working with Sarah. She was amazing. I am not a typical bride...i hate pictures, didnt want to have the whole "getting ready" photoshoot...didn't want engagement pics...and she worked so easily with me! We did pre-ceremony pics in Washington Square Park and then onto the wedding in SoHo...she captured so many amazing moments without you even knowing she was there! All the photography came out beautifully. I ordered 3 albums from her as well, and my parents get endless compliments on how exceptional the photos are. Sarah was so accommodating at every turn, whether it was meeting me late in the evening, a schedule change, staying late at the reception, or changing my albums after they were printed! I cannot say enough good things about sarah tew photography. Any event i have in the future that needs a photographer, she will be my first call. I would recommend her to any one. She really did an extraordinary job with the photography for my wedding, and that has provided us with so many memories close to our hearts. If you want a professional with an amazing eye, who is easy to work with, Sarah Tew is the perfect choice for you.

Sarah was a great photographer!

We gave her the unique task, of photographing our surprise wedding in New York City. We were unable to meet in person before hand (we were just visiting) so we had only connected a few times prior through email. We really put all our trust in Sarah to capture the important moments. And she totally delivered! During our intimate ceremony she completely blended in and made everyone feel relaxed. With just our parents in attendance having Sarah's photos are the only way for our extended family and friends to experience our wedding. She captured everything we wanted. And couldn't be happier with her work or service! Outstanding.

Sarah's photos were amazing. Everyone raved about them. She was completely unobtrusive throughout the evening. And she was very flexible with us, going out of her way to make sure we were able to shoot some pre-ceremony shots in daylight even though we had our commitment ceremony the day after daylight savings started, which meant she had to start an hour earlier. Super, super, super. I would recommend her to anyone for either a commitment ceremony or a wedding.

We do not have enough words to express how much we enjoyed working with Sarah for our engagement shoot and wedding. I guess that's why they say a picture is worth a thousand words ...
Sarah was totally flexible with us in creating our own package of photography and prints and I can't imagine working with anyone else. The results of her work are stunning and if you need a wedding photographer in NYC, you should work with Sarah! We are constantly getting calls and e-mails from our friends and family about how much they love Sarah's work and how they were moved to tears from the images and moments that she captured on film.
We found Sarah through our reception venue because it was a rather unique space and we wanted someone who was familiar with the space to shoot our wedding. What a great idea that was!
Sarah really went above and beyond all of our expectations. Especially when she saw that our friends were posting photos on Facebook right after the wedding, Sarah stayed up and had some of her own photos up and available for us to use on Facebook by the time we woke up the next morning.
It was the most magical night of our lives and even though it went by in an instant, we are so lucky that Sarah was there to capture it on film for us to relive again and again!

We do not have enough words to express how much we enjoyed working with Sarah for our engagement shoot and wedding. I guess that's why they say a picture is worth a thousand words ...
Sarah was totally flexible with us in creating our own package of photography and prints and I can't imagine working with anyone else. The results of her work are stunning and if you need a wedding photographer in NYC, you should work with Sarah!

My husband and I, not to mention all of our guests, are still raving about Sarah Tew's photography. She impressed on us every front and we would recommend her without reservation.
We heard about Sarah through word of mouth and when we hired her, we weren't totally sure how she would compare to some of the other photographers work that we saw. We hired her because her pictures were great and she seemed normal and easy to work with (not an easy thing to find in wedding vendors!!)
All I can say is that her quality of work blew us away. Our engagement shoot was a hit with everyone and I'm sure it helped to have such a great picture to submit to the NY Times wedding announcements. It made us feel excited and confident about her being our wedding photographer.
At the wedding, Sarah and her assistant Dmitry were a total joy. They weren't intrusive but they did what they needed to do to get all the shots that we had discussed in advance. They were flexible, friendly and professional.
At the end of the day, it's really the actual pictures on the page that will make you remember your photographer fondly and WE CAN'T STOP mooning over our awesome pictures. How did she make me look so pretty? How did she get family members who don't get along to look so happy to be in a picture together? How do the groomsmen look so amazingly dapper? How did she catch our nephew up a tree during the reception? I don't know the answer to these questions but all I can say is that I am happy to be asking them now and it's all thanks to Sarah.

Sarah is an amazing photographer. My dad, who is very hard to please, calls her the best photographer ever. She was amazing from the time we signed contracts through our wedding day and now in our album making process. Sarah takes beautiful photographs. She captured the moments of our wedding so beautifully. We received all of our proofs, 8x10 photos, printed photos and the disc days after we returned from our honeymoon. Not to mention all the wedding photos were already in the online album while we were still away on our honeymoon. Words can't even express the quality of her work. Take a look at her photos online you will be very impressed. I would recommend Sarah to anyone needing an amazing, talented, professional photographer.

Sarah Tew is awesome, and if you haven't picked your photographer yet you should choose her. She has a great personality for this kind of work - friendly and approachable, and also professional and unobtrusive. She offers an "a la carte" menu of her services so you can pick and choose what you want. We chose her basic wedding package and were 100% satisfied. The engagement shoot was great for getting to know her -- very important for a couple of people who aren't used to getting photographed all that much -- and she created a lovely guest album using photos from the shoot. We had Sarah and her assistant for 8 hours on our wedding day. We were so happy with how all the pictures turned out and she caught everything that was important to us. The deliverables were perfect -- archival DVD of hi-res photos, Facebook albums, slideshows set to music, book of favorite shots + all the proofs, and a credit towards an album, and a lot of other features & details, everything packaged beautifully. We added the photobooth option to our package, which was well worth it when you consider the amount of fun our guests had with it, and the fun we had in seeing the results. I did not have a full appreciation for how much work and how much attention to detail is required to do everything Sarah does, and having been through it now and seen and shared the results, she was worth every penny.

As a bride who had to plan a reception in a different city for family and old friends, I did not have the luxury of time to check out photographers personally. Like many, I blindly searched the internet.
Sarah Tew was one of many who popped up. She has a top quality website with some of great and artistic photographs. Some photographers don't provide enough content for you to evaluate. Still I made the leap of faith and reserved Sarah for such a significant day - sight unseen.
I found her immediately responsive and always available, even though I was in CA and she was in NY.
Day of reception - she was on time and immediately ready for work with little guidance. She kept taking photos with a smile the entire time. She was fantastic and very professional without ego.
Photographs - Soon afterwards, she sent the link. I reviewed the photos and must say - WOW - impressive. The photographs were wonderful. There are so many fantastic photos that the difficult part now is deciding which to keep and print. She exceeded my expectations.
I highly recommend Sarah Tew for your photographic needs.

She was great about offering guidance when we weren't too sure about something but following our lead when something was important to us (even making the trip down to Philly for our engagement shoot!). And most importantly of all, we have gorgeous pictures to remember the day :)

Sarah was, in a word, fantastic. She was one of the first vendors we booked and I am so glad we did.

We ended up with a package that was perfect for us. We did an engagement session, had an ‘open-air’ photobooth at our engagement party, and the entire wedding day (six hours or so).

In all of our discussions, emails, photo shoots, etc, Sarah was super friendly and easy-going but very professional.

When photographing us, she directed us well but also took our ideas and suggestions easily. We got so many raves from our engagement session photos and are still get compliments on the wedding photos! They are gorgeous and I’m so thrilled with them.

She went above and beyond in so many ways. I cannot say enough good things about her and working with her—I highly recommend using Sarah!

Sarah went above and beyond in all regards. She first took the time to really get to know us. Then, based on this personal insight, she perfectly captured the overall experience in a manner that very accurately portrayed the wedding atmosphere and the personalities of the many people there. When we look back at the wedding photos and album now, it brings us right back to that special moment. In addition to the exceptional quality of work and professionalism, It was a real pleasure to interact with and get to know Sarah. We would strongly recommend Sarah Tew Photography for any special event.

Thank you Sarah Tew!

My wife and I were married in June 2010 and as predicted by everyone it flew by in a flash. Fortunately, we have the entire weekend and engagement events so professionally documented we have been reliving it almost daily for the past month. After first hiring Sarah, she took the time to really get to know our personalities and hear about what we were planning for our ideal wedding. About a month before the wedding we had our engagement shoot.
Sarah presented us with several new ideas potential places she was interested in shooting as well as her portfolio of other engagement sessions. Ultimately, we decided to have an urban and scenic backdrop so we all decided on Highline Park and the West Village. We spent a few hours at the end of a late spring day taking pictures and had a great time doing it. Sarah was really in the moment and was very excited. She directed everything so well and we were thrilled with the end product. After the shoot, she put together her favorite selection of photos that we all completely agreed on for our book. A short time later we received an amazing leather bound book that we used as our guest book at our wedding reception.
Leading up to the wedding, Sarah had the timing of our day covered and we certainly didn’t have any concerns about anything besides the weather! On the day of, Sarah spent the morning and early afternoon with my wife and the bridal party while they did their hair and makeup. It was amazing for me to see everything happened on the female side after the fact. On my side, Sarah’s assistant Jeff documented the time with my family and I while I got ready.
When it was time for us to have our first look at each other, it was so carefully orchestrated. The two of them coordinated and captured the moment beautifully. We were at a B&B in the Hudson River Valley and it was very scenic. At one point, Jeff was tucked all the way in the woods capturing photos of us from a distance. What was most amazing about their teamwork and execution was that aside from the intimate session my wife and I had before the group photos, we didn’t see them the entire evening. We would have been happy to interact with them, but I mention it only to emphasize that we weren’t cognizant that any photos were actually being taken during the day. However, we were amazed that there wasn’t one element of the day/night that was missed.
All in all, our photos were extremely professional and had a real artistic element to them that I haven’t seen in any other of my friends wedding photos. Sarah not only did an amazing job at the wedding and engagement shoot, but also was quick to load all of the photos online as well as put the ball in our court to select our favorites for the books. She also sent us a DVD (in a leather bound case) of every single picture snapped as well as bonus videos montages that we didn’t even know were being taken! The presentation of all of the materials was very impressive.
Throughout the entire process, we really got the feeling that this wasn’t just a job for her, but an opportunity to make a couple very happy while unleashing her creative/artistic abilities. Sarah and Jeff were so pleasant to work with. If you’re looking for a photographer for any special event, it’s a no brainer….hire Sarah Tew!

We used Sarah for our wedding in April 2010, and she was such a pleasure to work with. I wanted someone who could do both the posed portraits our family wanted along with un-posed artistic shots that captured the spirit of the day. Sarah was able to do all of that while being totally unobtrusive and incredibly nice to work with. Out of all of our vendors, she was one of the few that was so incredibly organized, responsive, and just plain nice.
On top of being a total pleasure to work with, our pictures looked incredible - my family couldn't stop raving about how she was "everywhere" and I loved that she didn't interrupt the celebration to get a shot. Looking back at the photos she captured moments I didn't even know where happening, and were such a treat for me to see afterward.
There are other photographers with similar pricing who will give you gorgeous pictures. What really sold us on Sarah was the value and service she provided. She was flexible on customizing our package, we had an online slideshow of our photos up within days, and a link to our entire photo gallery before we even returned from our honeymoon. The photos would have been worth the wait, but I'm glad we didn't have to!

Working with Sarah was fabulous. I met her because of her non-wedding photography, which is amazing and which immediately made me want to know more about her. When we got to talking and she mentioned how much she loves shooting weddings, I knew she'd be a perfect match for me. My suspicion was confirmed by her gorgeous portfolios.

We ended up having the wedding in New Orleans instead of New York, but we did do an engagement shoot with her. It was great! I was really nervous going in, but she's so easy to work with that in no time I was having fun. The shoot gave us beautiful photos that we love, and with them Sarah crafted albums that thrilled our parents when we gave them as gifts at our rehearsal dinner. Honestly, I wish we'd gone ahead and flown her down to Nola for the wedding!

I recommend Sarah highly to any affianced couple in the NYC area, as well as anyone else looking for polished, professional, gorgeous photojournalistic work.

Every time I look at one of the photo books that Sarah created I am so
glad we chose her to photograph my bachelorette party, our engagement
portraits, and our wedding. She thoughtfully and movingly tells the
stories of these events, treating each event as unique. Everyone who has seen our engagement or wedding book has either wanted her to take the photos at their
weddings or they have wanted copies of the books. As my memories of
the wedding become so closely tied to the photographs, I am grateful
that we have so many amazing pictures to look at and remember it by.
Even though there could not have been more rain at our wedding, Sarah
captured the intimacy and beauty of the ceremony and reception. She
adjusted well to the unplanned weather and took charge of the
situation - making sure that in the few moments of clear sky we got
out and had our portraits taken. Sarah is in her element at weddings - she is a wedding photographer who is passionate about the whole event and who will give you lasting and beautiful memories of one of the most important days of your life.

Sarah was everything I hoped for in a wedding photographer. She completely understood my desire to capture as much as possible in a candid way and my hopes to avoid the permutations of posing that typically occur pre and post-ceremony.

Her style really jived with the wedding's details, a lot of which were homemade and handmade. She did a wonderful job photographing all of the pieces, and as a result, I have a very complete and beautiful catalogue of the day and all that went into it. I really love her photographic style, and I believe that while it's consistently elegant, she tailors it to each and every wedding she does.

Sarah is professional and responsive. After the wedding, she shared the photos within days. Her assistant was also lovely -- competent, helpful and personable. I couldn't have asked for more from the person that was so instrumental in shaping the memories of our day.

Sarah is professional and responsive. After the wedding, she shared the photos within days. Her assistant was also lovely -- competent, helpful and personable. I couldn't have asked for more from the person that was so instrumental in shaping the memories of our day. Read less

Aside from the unforgettable whirlwind of happiness, it's true what they say about wedding photos being the most lasting thing from your wedding day. Sarah - there were moments and details and emotions that you captured in both color and timeless black-and-white photos that I didn't even know were happening, and that is what I appreciate the most about your photography...reliving the day through so many perspectives, remembering the ceremony, the beautiful weather, the happy families, the funny toasts, and the insanely fun dancing - all of the people and details involved in our special day have been woven into a beautiful story of images. Your laid back but meticulous and professional work was incredibly appreciated by all who attended, especially me and my parents. I will never forget your willingness to go the extra mile either - coming to Maine to photograph our wedding and creating personalized photo albums for us and both of our parents was the most thoughtful gift we could have received. Thank you for everything.

Sarah photographed our wedding at Battery Gardens in October of 2011, and she did an amazing job. From our first meeting to our engagement shoot to the big day, Sarah made us feel at ease and comfortable being photographed. She has an amazing eye for beautiful backdrops and interesting details and is great at spotting and capturing meaningful moments. She's organized and makes the whole process easy with great informational materials and checklists -- it was very simple to communicate all the shots we wanted, and everything was covered. Sarah has serious technical chops and the enthusiasm of an artist who really loves what she does. We are thrilled with our photographs and can't recommend her highly enough!

Selecting Sarah for photography was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Not only is she talented, but she has this amazing energy that I found very comforting during the wedding.

She went way beyond her photography duties by helping us plan a detailed schedule for the wedding day. She gave us a lot of great feedback on this "day of" schedule and helped us prevent timeline problems that could have popped up. Thinking about this and planning it out ahead of time made me feel really confident about how things would go on the wedding day. We felt like we were in really good hands because Sarah offered a lot of extra advice when we ran into questions. This was particularly helpful when we were in the middle of a hundred wedding decisions- it was great to have Sarah's expert advice to guide the way.

Most importantly, we love Sarah's photos and we have received many compliments from family and friends. Sarah even posted sneak peak photos of our wedding night on the night of our wedding. We were so impressed that she got them up so quickly!

Sarah was super professional, flexible, and supportive throughout the whole process. We felt like we were in really good hands the whole time and highly recommend her to others.
