You don't need just a wedding photographer, you need someone you can trust. With your experience, your loved ones, and your memories. I'll be by your side with all the energy of an old friend sharing in your giddiness and ensuring your only focus is one another, all while expertly capturing the feelings behind the moments that you want to hold onto for a lifetime. I’ll be there for the entire day to capture every little detail. Seriously, I won’t leave until the last dance or your grand exit!
My daughter's wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life. What I love so much about Sara is that she captured this joy, and all the other emotions that go along with a wedding in each and every photo she took.
Do yourself a favor and book with Sara and Bona Fide Photography ASAP! We didn’t know what we wanted in a wedding photographer and we are extremely grateful we found Sara. From the first time we spoke to Sara, we knew we booked the correct photographer.
To sense when you’re uncomfortable in a pose, to know when it’s time to grab a beverage, and to pick up on the little things so the images truly reflect you. This is why I insist on meeting you before your wedding at your complimentary engagement shoot.
It’s time to shake out the nerves. I’ll get you two comfortable and confident in front of the camera so you’re actually looking forward to taking photos on the big day!
After you and your fiance have decided I am the photographer for you, I will send you a contract that you can digitally sign and an invoice for the deposit. It’s that easy!
If you have a wedding date and vision, it’s time to reach out! If I have the date available we’ll grab some coffee in person or digitally to discuss your dream and how I’ll help you achieve it!
You’ll receive an online gallery of incredible high resolution images that you can easily download or share with your friends and family! If you've ordered a custom album, that will follow.
Let’s celebrate! I will document every sweet moment until you leave for the night. I’ll be there encouraging you to be present and not worry about a thing. (In the days to follow I’ll send you a sneak peek!!)
Now is the time to iron out the timeline and formal shot-list so we’re both prepared. I’ll give you feedback based on the venue, lighting, and the special moments you’re looking forward to!
Yes. If it is a significant distance from Central PA, we can discuss a game plan for the big day. If you are planning a destination wedding, let me know as soon as you know so I can plan accordingly.
Of course. Just let me know when we are chatting that this is a priority and I will make sure to block off my calendar for that date to ensure my availability.
It depends on the season. My maximum contracted time is 60- 90 days for peak season (fall). However, you will get a beautiful sneak peek within a week after your big day to give you a taste of the magic that is coming your way.
It is a legal document that gives you permission to freely print your photos anywhere you want. While you are welcome to print your images through your gallery, you do not have to.
A lot. I never limit the number of images I deliver. You will get somewhere between 50-100 images per hour of coverage. With that said, the more action packed the day is, the more photos you will get. For example, if you and your partner choose to do a first look, you will likely get more photos than a couple that chooses to skip it.
No. You can, but you do not have to. You will have a print release so you can order the photos through your favorite lab (though I highly recommend skipping CVS.)
I’ve got you. 2020 showed us all how important flexibility is. I genuinely respect your decision to move your event to help protect your friends and family from illness. I will do everything in my power to pivot with you.
I am a Nikon shooter. I shoot with a variety of cameras and lenses and I ALWAYS have a back up for the back up. (This includes backing up your wedding images on multiple memory cards while I shoot.)
Of course. In my opinion, this is a minimum requirement for any professional. If your venue would like a certificate of insurance, I am happy to provide a copy.
Yes! I am happy to send you a list of awesome wedding vendors. I consider my familiarity with the local vendors and planning process to be an added bonus to choosing me to be your wedding photographer.
