Sarah Vaughan Photography
Our wedding was absolutely fabulous, and this was due in no small part to Sarah and her second shooter Natalie.
Our engagement session gave us the opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera and a chance to get to know Sarah. She provided an incredible amount of flexibility in terms of scheduling and was fantastic at responding to our queries quickly. On top of the logistical bits, it was immediately evident that Sarah has a great deal of talent and a fabulous eye for locations.
Leading up to the wedding itself, I was never more than a few hour wait from receiving a response from Sarah. This was undoubtedly appreciated, as it helped minimize stress on our end. She was exceptionally organized, created an itinerary to match what we requested and completely accommodated any adjustments we needed to make.
On the day of, Sarah was early to meet up with us and got to capturing the details right away. Small touches like an extra bottle of water in her car for me (thanks to her husband!) really made the day seamless. She made sure to stick to our tight schedule and ensured that we were comfortable with making a minor adjustment to the itinerary so that we could capture the best light in the evening. We had family members and friends remark at how personable she and Natalie were, yet how it barely felt that they were there in any intrusive sense. I think this was really key to some of the candid shots that they took throughout the evening. She also wasn't afraid to change things up by using a film based camera for some of the shots, which give us some of the best hard copy keepsakes I could imagine - we even have the negatives for future printing purposes!
I am so pleased with how the photos turned out and with how pleasant Sarah was throughout the entire process. The product she turns out is amazing and she doesn't spare any detail. I would definitely recommend her to family, friends or strangers.
How can I say in words how great Sarah is? Honestly, her work speaks for itself! Sarah is so comfortable to work with. She is open, friendly, professional, and when you meet her it feels like you've known her for years. Communicating with Sarah was so easy and her responses always came quickly. She really listened and understood the feel of our wedding, the love an labour that was going into it. She captured our wedding day and the essence of the day so beautifully that in the years to come we'll be able to look through the pictures and relive that day so vividly.
Sarah, thank you again and again for the incredible photos you captured for us. We hope the opportunity to work with you comes again soon!
Sarah was an exceptional photographer capturing lovely, touching and frankly exceptional moments for us both. Sarah responded to a bride's worst case scenario - our photographer was unable to come to our Wedding three days before the event!! We found Sarah based on a recommendation and immediately Sarah responded to our call and agreed to our date. Sarah was prompt, super professional, kind, funny, and an expert at moving elegantly in and around our event. The photographs came back right on time and were lovely. Sarah's artistry is immediately apparent in every image we have. We LOVE our photos and so do all our friends! We were honoured to have Sarah as a very special part of our Wedding celebration. We would recommend Sarah's work to anyone and everyone. She was the perfect photographer for us.
Sarah is the ultimate photographer! She has a great personality and the pictures are amazing! I highly recommend her for your wedding, she has given us pictures that we never could have dreamed of!
There are lots of reasons we chose to go with Sarah but the big one being that we loved her style of photography! I would highly recommend Sarah as a wedding photographer for the couple that wants beautiful understated photos that are not too editorial-looking. She had great suggestions for both our engagement and wedding shoots and we fully trusted her instincts! Aside from that, Sarah was so easy to work with, great with correspondence, so flexible, we had to re-schedule our engagement session at least twice due to the weather, and she was totally accomodating. For our wedding, we had her for a full 12 hour day out in Banff and were completely comfortable with how she worked out that day. One of the best suggestions she gave us was to do a separate location shoot for couples photos after our ceremony. That was one of our favorite parts of the day as we got to have some time to ourselves, and Sarah and her husband made us feel completely at ease. The photos turned out great, both posed and candid shots. I cannot say enough good things overall, including that she is so so nice. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend her or work with her again in the future!
Sarah was and is a gem!
We did not have a grand vision of what we were looking for and we handed all the creativity over to her and she did not dissapoint. We even had poor weather and she was able to improvise locations and not compromise any of her creative vision. Finally the value of her services was fantastic, I would have gladly paid much more after all was said on done. I would highly recommend Sarah to any bride and groom to be.
signed the happy husband
Sarah was an absolutely incredible wedding photographer. She was so warm and friendly and full of great ideas right from our first meeting. She helped us to feel relaxed and have fun. Taking photos with her and our wedding party was the highlight of my big day!
I could not have been happier not only with the experience of working with Sarah but with the finished product. Our photos are so amazing...both our engagement photos that she did and especially our wedding photos. They are so creative, different and reflect the personalities of my husband and I. She seemed to capture exactly who we are as individuals and as a couple.
I am so happy to have such a complete and beautiful record of my wedding day!
I would highly recommend Sarah Vaughn, her and her partner were amazing! The relationship she developed with me, my husband and the bridal party has continued to this day!
Lastly the photo's are gorgeous and we can't wait to use her again for our first child's pictures!
Thanks so much Sarah!
Sarah was extremely accommodating. She has a fantastic eye for capturing a great photo.
Sarah was very helpful, prior to the wedding she was great at sending out ideas to what to do if the weather was bad or what pictures you would like. Her photography skills are amazing, it was so natural to work with her, she definetaly knew what to look for when taking amazing pictures.
Sarah was AMAZING !!!! She worked with us the weeks before giving helpful ideas and getting to know what we where looking for . She was a pleasure to work with.
The high quality of the photos them self stand alone !!!! We could not have been happier and would highly recommend Sarah as a photographer
Sarah is a fantastic photographer. She listened to what we wanted and the photos turned out perfect. We couldn't have asked anything more from a photographer. Sarah is great. :)
Sarah is amazing! She was very flexible to our every need and took such great photographs. We will have these photos and memories to last our lifetime and Sarah's attention to detail made sure that the photos were perfect. I cannot thank Sarah enough for all the hard work she put into ensuring the photos are great.
Sarah was excellent to work with... very personable, flexible to travel to our out of town wedding and completed the photo shoot with minimal instruction (mainly only time and location!). I would absolutely work with and recommend Sarah for future shoots. Only one comment to help other couples...... take a look at other wedding photographs to get an idea of some fun poses you might want to replicate. Sarah will happily work with your ideas but may not have a lot of suggested poses. Since I'm not experienced in front of the camera and don't know what angles and positions look good, I felt a little pressure to come up with poses with my bridesmaids (fortunately my husband is a photo bug so our couple shots were very nice). Do a little pre-planning of your own and call Sarah!
Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with! We hired her for our wedding on June 11th, I was referred to her by a friend through work and it was the best thing that could have happened! She not only met with me several times before the wedding, but she provided me with excellent tips and tricks to help make the day go smoother as pictures are such a HUGE part of your wedding day. She even went and checked out or photo sites on her own time before the big day so she would be completely prepared.
She suggested some really fun things that made our pictures turn out absolutely amazing. She made the day fun and light which is exactly what we needed, she got to know us enough before that all her suggestions were soooo us and you could see that in every photo. We have a 2 1/2 year old son and she even managed to get him to look at the camera and smile for family pictures, that alone is amazing! The pictures came back so much quicker than I thought and, every picture turned out amazing, and we couldn’t be happier with every shot.
Honestly I do not know what I would have done without her awesome advise, fun and positive attitude for my big day! She was by far the most reasonably priced for her skill, which is second to none. She truly did make our wedding such a memorable and wonderful occasion, pictures are all you have when all is said and done, and our photo’s truly captured our day perfectly.
If you are looking for a photographer that is extremely talented, provides value, will take the time to get to know you and what your vision for your session is, Sarah is your perfect choice.
