Photography by Sarah J is about photographing your day exactly as it is...

Hey There!

You must be looking for your wedding photographer, how exciting! Thanks for clicking on my listing. Please feel free to look around, go over to my website, check out some real life weddings, and get in touch I would love to hear from you!

Put quite simply Photography by Sarah J is about photographing your day exactly as it is. No meddling, interfering or taking you away from your guests for hours on end and putting you through your paces as magazine models. It’s not us and it’s probably not you either.

It’s all about working the photography to suit you and your day (not so much the other way around), it’s about letting you be you and me be me and the day be the day. I believe the best moments cannot be set up or constructed, they all come as a result of what is happening at the time. And when it is portrait time you can relax knowing I/we will make it easy and lots of fun for you and your bridal party. Our job is to use our experience and creativity talents to secretly gather all of these moments in the right way and present them to you so you can relive your day again and again!

My delight is making you so happy, from the first contact to the time you’re showing off your album to your Grandies in 50 years time. 🙂
