This is the rarest of days where you’re surrounded by everyone you hold significant in a wild celebration of the start of something – something big.
It’s romantic and chaotic and tender and loud and you want every emotional word, bubbling cheers, favorite tune and truest crack of laughter to stay completely alive in your photos so you can come back to this one day and feel all of it all over again.
That’s what we’re here to capture for you.
Someone that gets right in there and snaps every candid, outrageous, tear-soaked shot while putting everyone at ease to simply live those moments and be themselves.
An enjoyable, elevated experience we’re in together from our first email to the final photo delivery. With thoughtful, custom guidance, we take care of you way past producing oh-my-gosh images.
A relaxed, positive, flexible collaborator you actually want to hang out with all day that knows how to navigate family dynamics and make EVERYONE look like complete rock stars in every photo.
An experienced professional who delivers not just modern photos of classic elements, but photos that freeze the fresh pop of personalities ripping up the dance floor unleashing that perfect party vibe.
Yes, of course! We have a small rolodex of incredibly talented photographers we can call to second shoot should it serve your wedding day. A second shooter can be a huge benefit if you two are getting ready at different locations, desire coverage of cocktail hour while we’re taking family photos after the ceremony, and/or have a guest count over 50.
Yes! Here are the top five.
Sarah Ellefson Photography retains the copyright, but you have printing rights and can post your images wherever you’d like. The copyright ensures that you may not alter the photos in any way to protect the integrity of our editing.
Everyone feels this way, but you’d be surprised how quickly you can both take a big exhale, put your guard down and actually have the best time.
And the easiest way to do that?
Your engagement session.
Once we’ve already worked together and you’ve seen how amazing the engagement photos turn out, you won’t think twice about feeling awkward in front of the camera on your wedding day.
A wedding day is a minimum of 6 hours for one photographer. After working through a rough timeline over the phone, we give you a custom package ranging from 6-10+ hours based on your photo needs!
If you’re getting married on a weekday, during the winter months of December – February or are in a bit of a shotgun situation with a wedding less than three months away, we have some wiggle room. Send me over your details in my contact form and we can get on the phone to see where you’re at money-wise!
We shoot with top of the line, professional grade Canon gear. Currently in rotation, two 5D Markiii bodies, a 50mm, a 35 mm, and an 85 mm lens collection, alongside a few flashes and video lights. We’re with the Boy Scouts when it comes to always being prepared! For this reason, we bring back up gear of everything we need to capture your wedding. We also carry a liability policy that fully covers my business should something go awry on your big day. If your venue needs a copy, no problem at all! Just let us know at least 30 days before your wedding and We’ll have the policy sent right over.
Email! We’ll respond lightning quick and it’s the best way to ensure we prioritize your communication and it doesn’t get lost in a jumble of text messages.
We deliver all images taken with the exception of duplicate + test photos, we don’t cap the number of images we deliver. All images are color corrected + edited in a manner consistent with what you see on our website and blog and we deliver images in JPEG format for easy printing.
