Hi Sarah
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for our wedding photos & canvas they are perfect.
When we started our wedding planning the thing I dreaded the most was the photography side. I'm very awkward infront of a camera so for me I was very nervous about finding someone. We met you at our very first wedding fayre & you were the first of many we spoke to that day & we both walked away knowing it was you that we were going to pick.

You made us feel so comfortable in all the meets and also on the day & the photos were amazing. We have and will continue to recommend you to other people.

Thank you again
Laura & Les

We first met sarah about a year and a half ago at a local wedding fayre and now after all her help and support throughout our wedding and afterwards we have come to consider her a friend. Before you even look at sarah's outstanding photography you are immediatly drawn to her warm nature and down to earth personality,
then you look at her work and are blown away at what this lady can do and at very fair prices considering the dedication she puts in to her work. I have always hated how I look in photos but sarah total turned that around
and my husband and I love every shot the selection of photos makes it almost impossible to choose your favorite but sarah offers her professional advise on what works and gives many different package options on how you would like your photos presented.
We simply cannot thank you enough sarah and now that we've met you we are seeing photo opertunities throughout our future with you behind the camera.
Thanks again

Within a couple of minutes of meeting Sarah at a wedding fayre, I knew that she would be the perfect photographer for mine and Tam's wedding! She is friendly and professional and cares a lot about her customers... She spends a lot of time before your 'big day' going through your requirements until you are completely satisfied with everything. It's great that she takes the time to do test shots at your venue with you, as you then have a chance to find out what works best - meaning that you get fantastic photographs that you will cherish for ever... I know that Tam and I will! We thoroughly recommend Sarah and tell everyone how over the moon we are with the photographs she took at our wedding. Our guests were also very impressed with our photographs - as is everyone we show them to! Sarah is a lovely person who has definitely become our friend as well as the lady who took our wedding photographs; and we will certainly be using her services again in the future!

[ Portrait Photography ]
From: Gill & Michael Giles

Through a chance meeting in a framing shop in Ashford and talking to Sarah, after years of thinking about having our portraits done we finally decided to make an appointment with her for a photo shoot to coincide with our 30th Wedding Anniversary. I was really looking forward to it however Michael was a bit apprehensive over the whole idea, but after a cup of coffee, a chat and a laugh we finally got down to taking the photos which we both thoroughly enjoyed - a lovely two hours of fun. It is difficult to put down in words Sarah's professionalism and her ability to put you at ease at all times.

We went back a week later to view the photos Sarah had selected from the vast amount she had taken. Another enjoyable two hours. Sarah's choice of photos and the way she suggested to assemble them was really inspirational.

On receiving our portraits it showed her hard work and commitment to her job which is truly remarkable. We were both so thrilled and overwhelmed with the quality and presentation, they were by far and beyond our wildest dreams. Not only have we gained some beautiful portraits for us and our family to cherish for years to come, but also we have gained a friend and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sarah for all aspects of photography, a really lovely lady. Thank you Sarah for putting a smile on a couple of oldies faces!!

Best wishes Michael and Gill

[ Wedding Testimonial ]
From: Sarah May Bradshaw

If you are entering this web site looking for a Wedding photographer but bored of reading testimonials please just take the time and read this one as Sarah Smith’s wedding photography gets the platinum award as far as I am concerned. She will tick all the boxes for your photography requirements which during the busy time of organising a Wedding in my mind is what everyone is looking for.

It was purely by accident that I employed Sarah Smith to do my Wedding Photography but what a fantastic fate of fortune it was. I would like firstly to thank Sarah for the brilliant professional job she did totally dedicated to her passion. Sarah from the start of our relationship always displayed an incredibly professional personal touch and the time and effort put in was no more than astronomical. This effort included several visits to the venue that we were to be married at to ensure that the light was o.k, including the darkness of the chapel and the position of the sun so as to gain the best positions to get people to pose. Also, where each photo would be best taken. A couple of evenings before the wedding Sarah came to our house to show us some poses for the day so that she would not be encroaching on our time during the wedding day by doing it then. During the day Sarah was incredibly polite to all the guests and totally relaxed in her approach making it seem she was one of the guests. Another positive aspect was that Sarah was aware of the fact that the photos are only part of the day, so after the agreed photos were taken she blended into the background doing candid shots and worked incredibly hard in achieving some fabulous shots. This is something which to my mind was an enormous bonus as some photographers can almost dominate some weddings. Finally, after the wedding Sarah put together a lovely preview album just enough photos to be able to arrange an album and her advice over this was invaluable.

Finally, I would like to extend the biggest thank you to Sarah for everything it was like having one of your best friends at your wedding taking photos and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for an affordable fantastic wedding photographer.

Dear Sarah and Dave We just wanted to pen to paper and thank you both again for being fantastic wedding photographers. We were quite nervous about choosing a photographer for our big day, for any bride and groom it’s a difficult and very crucial decision and when you hate having your photo taken it is made ten times worse! However, the first time we met you, you put us both at ease and we knew you would be able to capture some very natural shots of both ourselves and our guests. We really appreciated your very personal level of service and great attention to detail, right through from spending time with us at the venue prior to the day going through all our requirements, advising on how to stand and ensuring we had everything (and everyone!) covered, to your help and advice in compiling the album. It was great that you encouraged us to have an input; it made us feel we were important and valued customers and not just “another wedding photography job”. On the day the rapport you built up with the wedding party and our guests was terrific and as promised you really did blend in. We are delighted with the photos; they capture our special day so beautifully and will help us relive the memories for many years to come.It was an absolute pleasure working with you both, thank you again for helping to make our day so perfect. Best wishes Fiona and David

Having Sarah (and Dave) taking our wedding photographs was a genuine pleasure! From our original meeting, we (my groom Russ!) made it very clear that we were looking for a different type of photographer – one that would keep the flow going and allow the guests, and ourselves, to enjoy the day. On the day itself, both Sarah and Dave, were professional, yet realistic, achieving exactly what we had asked for, being sympathetic to our particular criteria. We were thoroughly thrilled with them being there, almost as guests themselves. We have had nothing but good feedback from the guests, many remembering and saying that it was actually quite fun having the photos – a rarity I believe!! The album blew us away. Obviously we had seen the photos in the preview album, but nothing prepared us for the impact of Sarah and Daves photos in the album.Its been a pleasure every time we’ve shown the album to family and friends, and they bring the day flooding back – which after all, is what they are intended for. So, yet another thank you Sarah and Dave for adding a special element to our day!! Cheryl and Russell Millar xx

From: Claire Sibley

Sarah was recommended to us via a friend of a friend for our wedding day photography and we are so glad she was. We loved the fact that she had a second photographer (Sheena) to take candid shots as there were some lovely ones taken at the church before I arrived and after of course. Our day was very windy and a bit cold and Sarah got through the group pictures first so our guests could go onto the venue which was very kind and thoughtful and very appreciated by them. She took time to come over to the church a few weeks before the wedding and to visit us to go through everything which helped with the nerves, she helped to make that side of things effortless and easy. She was great afterwards as well with putting our album together, which is a lovely album. We would definitely recommend Sarah for your wedding day.

Sarah and Dave photographed our wedding on the 6th September 2008.
Sarah first met with us to discuss our requirements in detail: she visited the church and the venue with us in advance and made us feel completely confident that she would do an excellant job.

And she did! Sarah Provided us with so many beautiful images , so quickly after the day, we found it impossible to choose. When we got our photographs they were even more stunning in print than they had been on the computer screen. We asked for lots of candid shots and we got them in abundance- every one brought back a very happy memory.

Thank You.

As mother of the bride, I was concerned that my daughters wedding day should run as smoothly as possible.
To this end I was very impressed with Sarah Smith the photographer. She took the time to meet up with Emma & Andy when they were down visiting to ensure that all qustions were answered and they knew exactly what to expect. She also familiarised herself with the church and it's surroundings at about the same time as the wedding so that she would know where the sun would be and where to get the best shots. Sarah was both organised and friendly so that the whole episode of taking the photographs seemed effortless and not over lengthy.
At the end of the day it is the photographs that you put on display that will remind you of the day and I would recommend Sarah to any one who wants a professional service resulting in some fab photos.

[Wedding testimonial]
From: Jamie & Julie Ledger

We were given Sarah`s name by a member of the family when we were arranging our wedding. From the moment we met Sarah its was like we had been friends for years. Sarah is so very professional but at the same time friendly and approachable. She made so welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
Over the years my wife and I have been to many weddings and we both have seen how pushy photographers can be but with Sarah this was most definately not the case. We had a meeting a week or so before the big day where Sarah went through everything with us so we knew what was going to happen and when. The day went so well and with Sarah there to
catch it all on camera we have pictures we will cherish for years to come. Thank you Sarah.

I had a wonderful shoot with Sarah on May 8th for my Spotlight Entry- the professional guide for all performers with your photograph as your calling card. . As a performer it is vitally important that your photographs reflect who you are and several facets of your character. Sarah took the time to get to know me and we had an amazing selection to chose from which I keep adding to my website.
Look out for what I call "Hair over Face " . I look forward to working with her again.

From: Danielle

When I had the photos taken with my two dogs all I was expecting was some nice pictures of us, what I got was so amazing I struggled not to cry. I never thought I'd ever see on a picture what I see in my dogs everyday, Sarah has the talent to catch their personalities and quirks in a few clicks of a camera. I can't even put into words how thrilled I am with them I just want to say a massive thank you to Sarah for giving me something that I never thought possible and that I can treasure for ever.
