Choosing the right photographer for your special day is one of the most important aspects of your wedding planning. Choose someone that compliments your vision, has the experience to get the job done, and makes your day "less stressful" not "more stressful".
Your Photographer - Sarah Williams
When it comes to weddings, engagements and love in general, I could go on for hours (yes, I'm a self proclaimed romance junkie)...but I won't bore you with my sappy notions, and instead I'll tell you what makes me a great choice as YOUR photographer.
The things that make us all special are the things that make us unique - both as people and as couples. We all have our own laughs, sillys smiles, quirks and qualities that are innately "us" - one of the things I strive to do as a Wedding and Engagement Photographer is to not "make" you be something you aren't, but to "highlight" the exact things that you are.
I have been lucky enough to call the beautiful San Luis Obispo County my home for over 15 years, and I have spent that time appreciating my surroundings and focusing on my passion for photography. I'm a people person, and I love stories (especially when they are about love), and in my line of work, that is just as important as my skill behind the camera. I take my work seriously, because capturing who you are and the beauty of your love deserves my dedication.
Whether your vision calls for an intimate or adventurous elopement along the windswept coast, or an elaborate "Black Tie" affair with 300 of your closest friends and family in attendence, I will turn your vision into a photographic reality. I love everything from the little details of a centerpiece, or the buttons on a Bride's wedding dress, to finding just the right location and lighting to create those lasting Bride and Groom portraits that you will want to hang on your wall and pass down to your children.
Most importantly, though...I'm fun to work with! Uncomfortable with posing? No problem! Nervous about all the details of your day? I've got you covered. I'm easy to talk to, I listen, and I take your ideas to heart. Whatever your needs are on your day, if I can help I will...even if it means helping my brides into their dresses, pinning boutonnieres (we all know these things are just meant to be tricky) or having a handkerchief on hand for those family members who don't want to dry their tears on their sleeves. I can't wait to chat with you about your ideas, your dreams and your creative vision when it comes to your special day!
I have been fortunate enough to be a "Top Pro" on Thumbtack for two years running, as well as a Wedding Wire Couple's Choice Winning professional with all "5 Star" reviews. It is my job to make you happy, and that is what I strive to do - from booking through to providing you with your images, I am always available to lend an ear, give advice and make sure that you are happy with the end result. Nervous about your day and want to chat about details? Call me. Have a quick question you need answered? I'm always here for you.
I shoot with all Nikon equipment, and can provide extremely high quality images that can be reproduced in very large sizes and on various mediums without sacrificing quality. I have two "full frame" professional cameras with dual card slots, which provides for almost unsurpassed "back-up" ability. My "corral of gear" includes all of the most reputable and well-loved lenses by wedding photographers, including the famed 70mm to 200mm 2.8 and the 24mm to 70mm 2.8, as well as the 50mm 1.8 lens, a 24mm to 140mm and a 14mm Wide Angle that will allow for those unique and "trick shots" that give your wedding gallery extra flair. I carry my own lighting, both "constant" and flash. I also use the lastest editing software, including Lightroom and Photoshop to ensure that my final images are both artistically edited and still true to what the eye can see.
