We booked Sartor for our wedding after watching them at another wedding, they had pintrest lists printed, they were working well together and making sure people were turned and jackets were buttoned and it was great! We booked them for ours and my bridesmaids were unfortunately counting how many times Tammy was yawning and how many times Adam had to move lights and try to take pictures at the same time. We didn't buy the most expensive photography package, so I'm not sure if that was a reason but I feel like we don't even have a good family photo from one side, if someone standing back would have said skoot close and turn it would have been great. Also they worked off the family and shot list I gave them but nothing extra, I don't have a picture of my wedding party coupled up, absolutely no candid pictures and not even a good photo of me or the groom walking down the aisle. I'm happy with the about 10 photos they edited they were amazing but there were a lot of moments I felt were missed or captured from the side or crooked and not very well. They did go to locations we asked, showed up on time, kept the pace going and tried a little extra on some shots I really really wanted. Overall they were better than the $500 photographer we priced but not as well as I was hoping. If I was doing it over I maybe would have looked a little more for a photographer than thinking they were the best since I had previously seen how they worked and was more close minded.

Sartor Photography was hired to photograph our wedding and a few downtown Belleville locations. They were able to complete a few of the required photos we wanted, but the most important photographs we requested of them, they did not take. Instead most of the photos during the ceremony were taken from a distant balcony of only our backs. The intimate shots we were wanting and had paid for were not taken and we are left with below average shots. When we reviewed the portfolio presented at our initial meeting, the shots he provided were intimate, close captured shots. What we received after our wedding was distant, wide shots. There were only a handful of close shots at the very beginning of our wedding. There was no close shot of our kiss, blessing of the rings, lighting of the candle, or blessing of the couple. The memory of my wedding in photograph is ruined and I can never have those moments back.

Also, Adam does not possess the software to do editing of photos and will instead direct you to someone he knows that can photo edit at a steep price. I was under the assumption he was a professional photographer with experience in photo editing. He can not edit out a photobombing arm or entire bodies from photos. I had to pay another company $1200 to edit out a guests arm and entire body out of 30 shots. Don't make the same mistakes I did. Be wary of their photography background.

Adam and Tammy were fantastic to work with! We interviewed three different photographers and they were by far the most relaxed and really made us feel like they would do whatever we wanted. We used them for both our engagement pics and wedding pics. The photos are wonderful and timeless, something that I knwo I will be happy with 20, 40, 60 years from now! We got the middle package which includeds both Adam and Tammy shooting (seperate locations to start while everyone prepped and then joining for every angle of the ceremony and reception). The price was the deal of a lifetime and we are soooo happy to have found them!

You get two for the price of one! They are a husband and wife couple that take the pictures. The wife can go to one location and the husband to another which is great when you are wanting pictures of both parties getting ready. They offer three packages, all of which are very reasonable. They will come to you for the initial consultation. We met at a restaurant and they even paid for our food, something I did not expect. They came to both locations the day of the wedding at the times that we requested. They took wonderful pictures. They were easy going and friendly people. You will definitely have memories through the pictures taken that you will never forget.

Sartor Photography was fantastic!!! We couldn't have asked for anyone better. They captured our big day so perfectly. We feel like we can re-live the day anytime we want by going back and looking at our photos. Their photos captured the emotion, the story behind the story and everything else in between. We will be telling all our friends about them....they were great in every aspect! Thank you Sartor Photography for the beautiful memories you captured for us!
