THE EXPERIENCE

Each and every moment, whether big or the in-between, make your story complete. I’m there to document every piece, no matter how insignificant it may seem.

[didn't mean for that to kinda rhyme]

You care more about your marriage than your wedding. 

You prefer timeless and authentic photos over trendy ones.

You consider your humor to be mildly or moderately inappropriate. 

You consider yourself awkward and need some help letting loose in front of a camera. 

YOU ARE DEFINITELY MY PEOPLE IF...

KIND WORDS

savannah & john r.

Sara is a breath of fresh air in the wedding industry. Honest, hilarious, meticulous and creative -- she’s everything you want and need in a wedding photographer. 

When first initiating our search, our family gravitated towards the sheer joy and authenticity beaming from her clients’ photographs. Now having gone through the experience myself, I know it’s due to all of the time and attention she takes on the front-end to get to know each client on a deeply personal level. She knows exactly how to showcase you and your partner’s true selves, as well as showcase the emotions, beauty and small details on that special day. 

It was very important to me and my husband, especially during these trying times, to support local women-owned businesses throughout our wedding festivities, and I can’t speak highly enough of my experience with Sara Boyd.

Absolutely loved working with Sara. We attended a friends wedding two years ago and the groomsmen were all saying how much they enjoyed taking pictures! As soon as we were engaged, I reached out to my friend and asked for Sara's number- their pictures came back and looked so great- and my friend had mentioned how much she loved working with her. Sara and I set up time to chat- and ended up talking on the phone for an hour getting to know each-other before she sent any contracts. Her personal touch, technique, overall warm personality and professionalism truly make her stand out! Our day was perfect- despite getting rescheduled due to the pandemic- Sara was there every step of the way- reassuring me, agreeing to our new date, and going above and beyond the "vendor" call. I would absolutely recommend Sara to anyone who is looking to capture your moment and have gorgeous photos to share and keep as reminders forever!

Sara Boyd was absolutely fabulous to work with from start to finish. I also cannot stop looking at and posting my wedding photos thanks to Sara. Sara was very flexible when we had to push back our wedding date due to Covid-19 and very quick to respond to all my questions. Once our new date arrived, she captured the day so beautifully!!! I’m completely over the moon with all the photos. Sara was so calm, funny and easy going the whole wedding day. I highly recommend Sara to all brides!!!

It is hard to put into words how sincerely grateful myself and my husband are for Sara. Her professionalism, her attention to detail, her ability to connect with her couples, her transparency and above all her kindness are what makes her truly a special person. 

Sara's pictures are beautiful! Many people have told us that our wedding pictures belong in magazines. Sara is down-to-earth, funny and had the ability to make my camera shy husband relax and enjoy taking pictures! 

Sara is not only the person who photographed our wedding. She is also our friend. My husband and I each feel as if we have found a life long friend in her. 

She also loves dogs and inappropriate humor, so if you're into that kind of thing HIRE HER!

Sara, on a serious note. THANK YOU for being who you are. You captured the best day of our lives and we couldn't be more thankful for you!

Sara is amazing to work with. So easy going and just a great human in general. We used her for our engagement photos and for our wedding. I was nervous that I would look and feel awkward in front of the camera but Sara made it easy and it was actually fun! During the wedding she was able to corral our crazy wedding party and the pictures she took still take my breath away. She was respectful and listened to any random requests or questions I had. Sara even helped me with other vendor suggestions and she even led me to the place that I purchased my wedding dress from! Still so happy with our decision to use Sara and would recommend her a million times over. 

Meryl + Emily

Sara is the absolute best!! She captured our wedding day perfectly and I keep going back to our album over and over and reliving that day. She was very easy to get along with and work with. As a lesbian couple, she made us feel so loved and accepted. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who wants the best photographer ever.

Lauren + Patrick

HIGHLY recommend Sara with Sara Boyd Photography. She made my now husband and I feel so incredibly comfortable because she’s so down-to-earth and funny.

During our engagement photos in Charleston, we got stuck in an epic downpour with sideways rain about 10 minutes into the session. We were upset, but she helped us laugh through the situation and she made herself available the following day to retake the photos. And even through a torrential downpour on our wedding day in Charlotte (we are not lucky when it comes to weather), she still delivered absolutely beautiful photos. She was also great and wrangling unruly groomsman, big families, and made sure to get every single shot we asked for.

We met with about 6 different photographers prior to making our decision and we felt we most connected with Sara. We loved everything about working with Sara. She made us laugh and made us feel comfortable. And, we love all the photos she took. BOOK HER!

FAQ

After your wedding, I’ll send you some preview photos to obsess over until I edit the whole shebang. You will receive your full gallery within six weeks via an online gallery. 

Yes! Of course! I encourage you to! I provide you with a print release that allows you to print your images wherever you’d like. 

Sure do!
General liability insurance as well as equipment insurance. 

To reserve your date with me, I require a signed contract as well as a deposit. The deposit is 40% of your total fee. 

I send all of my invoices online using my booking platform. You can pay your invoice directly online using the invoice with no fee. If you prefer to pay by check, that’s cool with me too. 

I divide your fee up into four payments - one of which is the deposit. The other three are due once a month starting three months out from your wedding. 

That depends. Because I travel for a good bit of weddings, I rely on the powers of social media to find someone awesome to be my sidekick in each location. If the wedding is local, I have a handful of badass ladies that I rotate between. Regardless, every second photographer I use is also a full-time wedding photographer that knows their stuff. 

YES! And I highly encourage this with every photographer you’re considering. Social media is deceptive — it can make an inexperienced photographer look fantastic. For all you know, the photos they’re posting could be the only decent one out of every 1000 they take, and that’d be a bummer for your wedding photos. I’d love to send you a full gallery that is similar in location to where your wedding will take place. Just ask!
