Sara Ellen Photography was THE BEST DECISION we made for our wedding day!
I was at a loss looking for a photographer I liked in Paso Robles, since we are from Los Angeles and didn’t know our way around. The vendor list from my venue only had very few overpriced, not my style recommendations, and I didn’t know what to do! So I started stalking Instagram hashtags for #pasorobleswedding and I stumbled on a wedding Sara had done previously and LOVED her work. Turns out she is not from anywhere near Paso, and was still willing to travel for our wedding! Her and I clicked right off the bat on the phone and I just knew she was the right person for the job. We never met in person until the day before the wedding (which can be scary when sending off lots of money for deposits lol) But her reviews online, her website, and personality were professional and I knew she was a master at her craft. She went above and beyond for us and even showed up for our rehearsal dinner so she could meet everyone and get familiar with the wedding party! Her second shooter Becky Clair was a real gem as well, and definitely worth mentioning an amazing review! She was with the groomsmen getting ready all morning, and managed to reel them in for some great photos despite them being severely behind schedule lol I would absolutely recommend Sara Ellen Photography to anyone who is looking for a creative, passionate, hardworking, sweet, funny photographer!

"...She is my family photographer FOREVER"
"I've known Sara for a few years now and in that time she has photographed my family three times. She's an amazing photographer, a natural eye without a doubt! Her images are full of love and joy....everything you want to be captured! And it's easy to see why she captures it so well, because in her heart she is a true loving and joyful person! I'm confident when I say, she is my family's photographer FOREVER!"

"...She’s a wizard behind the camera...a true professional..."
"Sara is a remarkable photographer from start to finish. I don’t think I need to mention how stunning her shots and use of lighting are - as her work speaks for itself - but beyond having a great eye, she is also everything you want in a photographer. First and foremost, she is professional. She shows up early, has already scouted the venue for the money shots, and offers clear lines of communication as to what you are looking for and what ideas she has. She is also creative and spontaneous, thinking on her feet and always adapting to the situation on hand. She simultaneously captures candids while also utilizing the space and “props" around her to create masterpieces. So she’s a wizard behind the camera, she’s professional, and she’s a true artist - but what separates Sara entirely is her comfortable demeanor. Let’s face it - photo shoots are AWKWARD. We are every day people celebrating a life event - not supermodels - and yet, Sara has this magical way of making you relax, disappear into the moment, and eventually forget there is a camera there at all. Sara shot my wedding, she did a pregnancy shoot for us, and she will be the photographer we turn to time and time again. We love her work and would recommend her over and over and over again! She’s truly the best!"

"...We cannot thank Sara enough."
"Sara was amazing. She was so accommodating and easy to work with. She did our newborn shots and did an awesome job. She took her time and worked around the baby’s needs and schedule. We ended up with beautiful pictures that captured a wonderful moment in time that we can look at forever. We can not thank Sara enough."

"...She made us feel so comfortable..."
"We were so impressed the first time we met Sara with how professional she is, but also super down to earth and sweet! She made us feel so comfortable while we were getting our pictures taken (even though we are a bit awkward sometimes). The way she captures moments, is incredible. She knows how to, not only take a beautiful picture, but also capture the beauty and emotions we felt during our session. We love looking back at our maternity pictures and remembering the precious experience of feeling our bundle of joy wiggling around. Sara is amazing!"
