The annual giveaway is here and for the fourth year in a row I will be giving away another wedding photography package! I am thrilled to have Katelyn of Haddy Ever After Events (for the 3rd year) and Lauren of Lauren Perry Studio (for the 2nd year) joining me again! These gals are amazing at what they do and have been a wonderful addition. This year’s giveaway is worth $8,800!!! That dream venue or those extra special touches you have been hoping to include may now be attainable. Read on for testimonials from past winners:
Jordan + Austin – 2016’s Winners
“When we found out that we had won the giveaway, to say we were excited was an understatement. I cried and screamed – then I smiled for days! Working with Sarah has truly been a blessing. She is so kind and is incredibly talented at what she does. I had ideas of poses that I wanted and Sarah was always more then willing to try them. She was so patient with two people who didn’t really know how to stand/look for photos! I had become overwhelmed at our wedding and Sarah was so calm and just kept working with us and all the crazy! She captures every detail and such a variety of angles, expression, etc.. My family, my husband, and I will forever be grateful to Sarah for this incredible gift she has given us. Because of her we have the most beautiful wedding photos we could ever ask for. And when I need photos in the future, she will be my one and only go to!” – Jordan + Austin Molo (check out their Norfolk Botanical Garden engagement here and Williamsburg, Virginia wedding here)
Morgan + Sam – 2017’s Winners
“My wife and I were selected by Sarah as part of her annual wedding giveaway, and we really could not have been more fortunate. Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was friendly, quick to respond, and very easy to work with. She put us both at ease, was open to any ideas, and really kept our thoughts and goals in mind. During our final run through call, she had everything prepared, but was open to our thoughts. Very gracious and easy going. On our big day, she let us enjoy the day, gave us one on one time, and scheduled time for us to be in the moment between photos. And her work was incredible. So pristine and beautiful, these are memories we will treasure for the rest of our lives, and we would confidently recommend her work to anyone looking for a photographer. We had our wedding in Columbia, SC, and she made the long trek from Virginia all the way down south. We loved her so much!” -Morgan+ Sam (check out their Lace House wedding in Columbia, South Carolina here)
Mary + Chris – 2018’s Winners (April 2019 Wedding)
“Winning the 2018 giveaway was a dream come true! Sarah, Katelyn, and Lauren have been amazing to work with from the beginning. They are incredibly talented individuals and as a team, their styles and creativity fit very well together! Sarah captured our engagement perfectly. We were both a little nervous to have our photos taken, but we quickly felt at ease working with Sarah. We have so many favorites from our engagement session and we will forever look back on them to remember this special time in our lives. Katelyn has helped us so much with getting organized and planning a wedding that fits our style! She always is there to help and always has creative ideas to share. Our wedding will literally be my Pinterest board coming to life thanks to her! Lauren has worked with us over the past few months to create the perfect invitation for our wedding day. She sketched multiple iterations of invitations to choose from and has worked with us on color and helped us with wording etiquette along the way. She is so talented and I can’t wait to see the finished product! We feel so lucky to be able to work with these amazing women and are so excited to see everything come together in April!!” – Mary + Chris (You can view their engagement session here)
