Sarah believes that your wedding day photographs should be romantic, spontaneous, detailed and unobtrusive. The photographs must reflect the atmosphere and essence of the day you have dreamt about. Capturing all the details, the ceremony, the bridal couple, as well as the spontaneously of the event.
I canít really put down in one word what my style is. I would say it is a combination leaning towards, reportage, photojournalistic and traditional. I do know is that I am passionate about my work and with every wedding I strive for the ultimate image. I love knowing that the couple are unaware of me on their wedding day. I like to just disappear into the crowd, yet capturing all the moments that nobody is aware of. I really enjoy the finer details of the day as well.
Sarah uses professional digital Nikon equipment. She offers various packages, these include, prints, high res DVD, Storybook album, Coffee book album as well as the traditional bound, brown leather album. The packages have a mixture of colour and black and white images. The best advise, is to meet with the photographer. Make sure you feel comfortable and that you totally understand the various options available.
Sarahís first interest in photography started as a little girl. She used to play with the old brownie camera, which is broken today, but still a valued treasure in her home. She spent hours with her mother in the darkroom of the local newspaper business, owned by her parents. Watching and helping with the different chemical stages of the developing images onto the photographic paper. She got her first real camera at the age of 10 and that is where it all started. Sarah says, her first image that she was really proud of was one of her pet dog, Cheeky.
Sarah furthered her interest in photography and studied at the Free State Technikon in Bloemfontein and has a photography diploma. After graduating she was employed by a photographer in Bloemfontein and here learnt so much about the industry. She now specializes in wedding photography and has been in the industry since 1998. Sarah is based in Cape Town.
