I take a very personal approach when it comes to my clients. From the first initial meeting to the time the album is received, I am the person you’ll be working with. I hold the initial AND final consult, do the epics, shoot the wedding, design the albums, upload the photos, etc…I believe that my clients hire me for MY time and MY talent and therefore I am in charge of taking care of them every step of the way. I don’t think I could ever book a wedding and hire it out to someone else….I truly feel I have the best clients in the world and often stay in contact with many of them. It’s because of my great relationship with my clients that my business gets more and more successful every year. I truly owe it all to them.

My philosophy on your wedding day photography is simple: your day SHOULD NOT be about your pictures, but rather your pictures should retell the story of what happened on your day. It’s the little moments you miss…your closest family and friends getting emotional as you walk down the aisle, the way your mom looks at you as you dance with your dad, the enjoyment that your guests have while living it up at the party you have so tirelessly worked to plan over the last year…it’s those things that I personally feel tell the story of your day. Anyone with a camera and a decent eye can take a “posed” photo, or randomly snap images thought out the day…but I feel it takes a true “natural ability” to be able to anticipate ” moments” before they occur…moments that you experienced or that your family and friends did…those special moments that you will want to remember for a very long time…and I am so fortunate to have been blessed with that ability! I strive to capture these real moments at each and every wedding. It’s not to say I don’t do posed stuff…I do…I believe that documentation with portraiture is also an important part in telling your “story”, but when it comes to the wedding party and bride and groom…we just have FUN and take photos as we go along and it’s in that way that you end up with those real smiles…not the fake cheesy ones…that make the images so great! Plus I mean who doesn’t want a kick ass ginormous wedding picture of themselves to hang up in the place you will eventually call home???

My goal in this business has been, is, and will forever be, to provide my clients with beautiful quality images that will take them back to how they were feeling right at that exact moment the image was captured. Read less

Sara does an awesome job! I love the candid shots. She is the best photographer that I have met. I found her after looking at a friends pictures and thought they were the best I've seen. I highly recommend SJMacky!

I can't say enough good things about Sara McDermott of SjMacky Photography! Sara was so easy, nice, and fun to work with throughout the whole wedding process. I knew I wanted her to shoot my wedding since the time she shot my sister's wedding a few years before. Her pictures turned out gorgeously, so I knew I had to book Sara! Sara of course remembered my sister and our family, and it was just like we were old friends. She made me feel very comfortable with the whole process and never pressured me to get a certain package. She was great during our engagement shoot, going above and beyond to get the best shots. She even crawled into some bushes and got one of my favorite pics from the shoot that day! Her turnaround time is excellent; I never had to wait long to receive her photos. I was on my honeymoon when she sent a link to the proofs from the wedding online. She even created an awesome slideshow of the best pics with the package I chose. She had great ideas for locations for pictures for the engagement session and the wedding day (throughout the Missouri Botanical Garden), but she also took our suggestions for backdrops. The pictures turned out AMAZING!!! We love Sara's photojournalistic style; there are so many great candid shots of our guests and wedding party. I know several other girls who chose Sara for their pictures and loved her as well. I would recommend Sara for anyone wanting to preserve their wedding memories in the best way possible!

Sara was amazing to work with. My husband is not the most comfortable posing in cheeky and cutesy photos but Sara made the engagement and wedding photos a breeze for him. She has a ton of packages available. Her turn around on the photos is ridiculous! She is lightening fast. Photo discs to you in your hands within a few weeks. She has a ton of original ideas. She is so down to earth. Her talent is amazing. I cannot say enough things about her.

Sara is ridiculously good at what she does. She made us look like models and was over the top excellent at customer service. There are some vendors that put on like they want to make your day great and then are a let down once they are booked. Sara is the real deal. She genuinely wants everyone to have beautiful photographs and cares about her couples. She was the best thing that happened to our wedding day. Service and skill wise, there is no one better.

Our experience with Sara was an extremely positive one. Not only is she amazingly talented, but she is just so fun to be around. We immediately felt comfortable with her and she truly captured our personalities through her photos. Her photo-journalistic style captures all the wonderful candid and special moments through your big day and every time you look back through your photos you feel like you get to relive your day. She is extremely reasonably priced for the quality you get. Her creativity and talent will blow you away. We would work with her again in a heartbeat, it was such a wonderful experience!!

I can't tell you how many people have complimented us on our photos, and I feel so happy that she was our photographer. Trust me, you will, too. CALL HER!
