This wedding. THIS WEDDING.
This was one heck of a spectacular, well planned event. I knew that it would be nothing less of that, considering I sat side-by-side in design school with the lovely bride, Korey. She all class. Each detail was perfectly thought out, not only complimenting her personal style, but the venue’s architecture and main design elements as well. Heck, I think she even ordered perfect lighting and a beautiful day from the big guy above as well.
With every detail in line, Korey and Joe spent the day incredibly laid back and just kind of taking it all in. You can tell that this couple enjoyed every second of their family and friends and most importantly, their love. The ceremony was a beautiful merging of not only two souls and two families; it was a merging of two faiths, Catholic and Jewish. They honored traditions of each family during both the ceremony and reception. This made for a lively and totally unique party that I have never quite experienced before. There was so much rich culture, right down to the custom cookies that they served.
Just knowing Korey and Joe, and how long they have been together, it was a great thing to witness them tying the knot. It was even more of a privilege to share in their first moments as husband and wife. See we as photographers, are honored with some of the first minutes of a couple starting thier lives in unity and marriage, as we are typically alone with them right after the ceremony to take thier portraits. Those moments are magical and hold so much tenderness and love. It keeps me thankful in my own marriage to be constantly reminded of the beauty and freshness of this sacred union.
That right there, those moments, the moments you are about to see; this is my life and why I do what I do.
Congratulations and many blessings to you Korey and Joe! I could not be more honored to be apart of your day!

Sarah is prompt, professional, on-point, and incredibly talented. But, more than that she's fun, and easy to be around, she makes you feel comfortable. My husband and I are not really "in front of camera" people, but Sarah managed to make us feel at ease and happy and (if nothing else) make the pictures look beautiful. Sarah is also a wizard. We got our pictures back SO QUICKLY. They're edited, there are a ton of them, they're beautifully shot. You can tell she loves what she does. You can really see it in the way she cares for you.
"Words can’t describe how amazing Sarah is, her work is exceptional and her personality makes working with her so easy. Almost every married couple will tell you that photography is the most important part of your special day and I can’t agree more. The day goes by so fast and I love that we have every moment documented thanks to Sarah. She has a way of capturing every detail and creating memories that will last forever. I am looking forward to working with her in the future, there’s no one better than her!"
"I would HIGHLY recommend Sarah for any one looking for a wedding photographer. She is amazingly talented and did a beautiful job. She gets you your photos very fast, too! She was kind and professional and she clearly has good instincts for her craft and how to fit her photos to your wedding style."
"I could not suggest Sarah more as a wedding photographer!! She takes breathtaking photos, is incredibly professional and easy to get along with. She has incredible "little touches" as a photographer that make the experience that much more amazing. I would've invited her to my wedding if she wasn't my photographer. She's been a professional photographer for many years and knows what she's doing. Her turn around time is great, and she worked really hard on our wedding day, and editing our photos. I felt like her only bride despite her have multiple weddings every weekend this past fall. AMAZING. "
"The Silhouette Studio delivered the most breathtaking photographs I have ever seen for our engagement session, rehearsal dinner, and wedding. The work simply speaks for itself, but there are so many additional attributes of this specific photographer that contribute to the many high quality ratings she has so rightly earned. Most importantly, her professionalism is unmatched. She kept our wedding timeline completely on track while capturing each and every precious memory in a way that did not take away from enjoying those moments. Her clear vision and assertive nature mean that not a minute of time is wasted waiting around on a day that zooms by so quickly. Sarah is a creative leader who captures timeless keepsakes effortlessly. Her commitment to getting to know her clients really impressed me, and it made following her lead easy and comfortable. Her turnaround time is UNREAL as we got to see all of our wedding pictures before we were married one month! I could not say enough positive things about this photographer or her commitment to growth and excellence. We are so thankful to have found a photographer for ALL of our future lifetime events! "
