Introduction: Hi, nice to meet you! I'm Sarah from Sarah Luther Photography. I specialize in weddings and family portrait sessions. I started Sarah Luther Photography out of a passion for capturing love and emotion through photography. I get excited about photographing each wedding as if it were my own. My family jokes about how they expected to see me walking down the aisle at my own wedding carrying a camera. My husband, also a photographer, is often my second shooter. We're not only your photographers, we're your storytellers and friends. When we work together, it's not just about the photographs, it’s about the experience. I want you to enjoy the process at every stage. I want to learn about your story and get to know you as a couple. I will get a sense of your personal style and understand what’s important to you so I can capture every detail. On the day, I want you to trust me to do what I do best, so that you can be yourself, relax and enjoy every moment. Pure emotions, the spontaneous and the scripted—I’ll document it all. I'm currently offering 10% off of my wedding packages (does not include my hourly rate).

I chose Sarah to photograph my wedding based on her portfolio full of gorgeous candid shots and creative detail shots. I hate posing for photos, plus I worked so hard on all the decor for the event and knew she'd appreciate that based on her style. So I figured she'd be perfect. Once I started communicating with her, it all fell into place. She is so personable and authentic--she really related to our vision and seemed to know right away what we needed. At the same time, she had a thorough intake process to find out exactly what we wanted, so there was no guesswork or mind-reading on her part. By the day of the wedding, she was one of the few things I was absolutely confident about. Sarah sometimes works as a team with her husband, and they both arrived on time dressed impeccably and ready to go. I was very busy before the ceremony and thankfully they didn't need any direction from me, they just started shooting and shooting, flitting around stealthily like ninjas. I barely saw them the entire night. There were a few posed group shots which my husband requested, and they were quick and reasonably painless. I was nervous about seeing the images afterwards, and thankfully we didn't have to wait long at all. Sarah had the website ready in only 9 days! And I was so incredibly thrilled with how the photos turned out. So creative, so thorough. The event was mostly in the evening in the winter so most of the photos had to be shot with the bizarre artificial lighting situations we had going on--house fluorescents plus colored LEDs. They managed to do a great job without using flash a lot and any blurring looked very creative and intentional. In the end, they managed to capture the entire story of the event from the very beginning almost to the very end in a lovely, cohesive timeline, exactly how I pictured it! It's so wonderful to look them over and it really takes me back to that magical day. The presentation package on the website is reasonably easy to use and lovely to look at. The hosting vendor also sells prints, so my guests can order whatever images they like for keepsakes. Overall Sarah and her husband are an excellent investment that you won't regret. I highly recommend her services.

Details: Wedding • 25 - 49 guests • Indoors • Flash drive

Sarah and Ori were so flexible with us during our two day photoshoot. Sarah had the forethought to make sure that we reached out to the location and get a permit for photographs if needed and was even able to move locations the day of if the weather did not permit. Faith was on our side and nothing had to be change. I appreciated there ability to be calm and lead the a large group of people. They both had a balance of direction and flexibility. I loved the candid shots that they took at our reception! They even stayed a bit later than expected since I was a bit in disposed. I would recommend or book them again in a heartbeat!

Sarah did our family photoshoot and she was a pleasure to work with. She was so patient as we navigated posing with a very active one year old. We’re in love with all the photos. I had to reschedule just a few days before the scheduled date as my son was sick. Sarah was super accommodating and promptly rescheduled us. I highly recommend her.

We had a great experience. Sarah was very kind and professional throughout. We had our family photos taken outdoors and she did a great job with the children in particular. We ended up with a bunch of great photos and highly recommend her service.

Sarah was an absolute delight to work with! She took the most amazing photos of my son for his 2nd birthday. Sarah was warm, welcoming and my son loved her. She was responsive and even accommodated a date change due to rain. Could not be happier!
