Bright, colorful and vibrant images that express the energy of the moment. Lighting that’s on point, even if you’re tying the knot in a tricky venue. Doing whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable enough to unleash your quirk for the camera and get those candid images that you’ll obsess over for years; that’s our jam! So when you’re looking at your wedding album and reliving your special day, you’ll never feel like something’s missing.
Here’s what we know about looking “natural” in your photos: It’s only possible if you’re comfortable with the person taking them. You want your wedding photographers to feel like friends, not strangers. That’s why Team SHP takes so much time getting to know you, so we can tell your story with more authenticity. We’re here to capture the meaningful moments you want while letting them happen naturally, so nothing feels rushed, staged or awwwwkward. (And you have more time to canoodle with your lovah, win-win!)
Our motto is less traditional, more original. We treat every wedding as a unique event that requires its own shot list and creative approach. All of our wedding collections come with engagement shoots (aka “the practice run”), a reliable and experienced 2nd shooter on site for your wedding day (Jenn will also be your unofficial dress floofer), expert lighting (we OWN dimly-lit rooms), an online gallery of your images for downloading, and ridiculous amounts of fun. Unicorns not included.
“Sarah has done a few of my friends' engagement photos and wedding photos, and I have always loved how vivid and bright her photos are. She made my husband and I feel so relaxed during everything! Our engagement shoot was so much fun and she made all of the images look gorgeous (our favorite was in front of a random garage door in Downtown Syracuse; it's so awesome!) and the day of the wedding she made everyone feel natural and made sure we had a great time (because let's face it, sometimes posing can be a drag.) And her team is amazing - I cannot say enough good things about Jenn and Wesley (and of course, Sarah's husband Tim who did an awesome job manning our Photo Booth!)"
“Sarah’s whimsical photo style caught my eye from the very beginning. I loved the way she brought personality into the formal portraits and really captured the moments with thought-out candid shots. She also went above and beyond for us, adding a few portraits of my parents to celebrate a big milestone for them without anyone asking, she just offered them the opportunity and they're so special!”
“Sarah’s pictures are clear with great color and seem to capture the best moments of life. She does a great job at making people feel comfortable, capturing their best side, and getting people to laugh. Sarah and the gang capture a fantastic picture of our last dance with some of our guests gathered around as we were lit up and kissed; it’s one of my favorite pictures of all time. She captured some pretty great photos of us that I think a lot of other photographers would have missed or not been up to shooting.”
