As a lifestyle photographer I am honored to share a short time of your life and celebration with you. My goal for you is that your day unfolds to you in a story. Reliving your special day with stolen moments that were captured just for you.

I love getting to know who I am photographing, your style, loves, likes and how the two of you met. This element is very important to me in caputuring your style and determing what you would like. I love being able to capture those "off the cuff" photos with that element of surprise when you see them after the wedding.

I cannot even begin to say how happy I was that Sandy did our pictures! I feel like she became a friend through the whole process. When my husband and I met with her the first time, we immediately felt that she shared our enthusiasm for our ideas and plans. We told her our plan of going back to Chicago (where we got engaged) to take a few pictures with family. She immediately jumped on board with the idea and ended up meeting us there to do our engagement session. We had an amazing time with her there and have stunning pictures to prove it! She put the pictures onto a disc for us and then made a stunning album for us to use as our guest book. She took amazing pictures recreating our engagement and just gorgeous pictures all around! Before the wedding, she continued to meet with us to plan and listen to my crazy ideas and pinterest pins! On the wedding day, I could not have asked for a better experience. Sandy went well above her job as a photographer. I was asked by multiple people if she was a family friend because of how easy going she was and how amazing she was with interacting with everyone. She took stunning photos again at our wedding, being respectful of the church rules as well as capturing those special moments that were important to us. Everyone in our bridal party commented how easy going she was and how great she was to work with! My matron of honor is now using her to do maternity photos and I know they will simply be amazing! My husband and I will be contacting Sandy again when it comes time to do any photos in the future. I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful she was to work with and how absolutely breathtaking her pictures are!

Don't hire anyone else but Sandy at SWeet Memories Photography! She was great with our very large wedding party. Captured our day in a spectacular way that only she can. Sandy does great work in lifestyle photography that we dearly loved. I look back on our photos and see things that only she could capture that day. I love her work and you would defiantly love working with her. She is flexible, understanding and helped keep me organized!

Highly recommend SWeet Memories Photography! Our engagement and wedding pictures are so beautiful. Sandy is wonderful to work with. We could see how creative and energetic she is with her photography. I wanted photos that captured our day in a story telling way and she got every little bit for us. Sandy is very knowledgeable and we felt as if we had known her for a long time. Very organized and she even came out a week prior to the wedding to check out the area for some wonderful photo spots that even we didn't know existed! We really love her work and will have her for our maternity and newborn sessions!

Sandy was so completely wonderful to us. My husband had been in San Diego preparing to deploy and only had a week to spare to come home for the wedding. So with only a week together to get all the last minute details worked out, to get married and hopefully to spend some good time together we thought that our photos would simply be another check on the mile long to do list. Sandy was so flexible with the uncertainty of knowing when he would be home and working with our wild schedule. She managed to do an engagement shoot and spent our entire wedding day with us. She was wonderful! Immediately upon meeting her my husband told me she felt like someone he had known forever. She was just so friendly and shared our energy and excitement with us. Our engagement shoot was so much fun! She really picked up on our personalities and captured that so well. Even members of our wedding party told me that she was a blast and that one of their favorite parts of the wedding was actually us going around town taking pictures together. It was just loads of fun! She captured every detail so beautifully! Right now my husband is deployed and we have very little contact, so I am so grateful for our engagement and wedding photos that I can look through when I need to see his face. Who we are as a couple was so well-captured, and I'm so happy we chose to go with SWeet Memories Photography!
Thank you so much Sandy!!

What a great photographer to capture my day! I felt it was last minute that we began searching for a photographer for our wedding, 5 months prior. Sandy worked with us so well, I didn't know what I wanted or what I wanted out of my photos. She showed us many styles, got to know us and really nailed our engagement and wedding photos! I really liked the time she spent to see who we are and what we like. I would recommend SWeet Memories Photography to capture your day or any day!
