HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO WE NEED TO BOOK?
Generally, The Silhouette Studio Photography books weddings from 8 to 15 months in advance. It's best to book sooner rather than later.
WE HAVE TO HAVE YOU! HOW DO WE BOOK?
Yay! Your wedding date is booked only when the studio receives a signed contract and a $1000 retainer, which is applied towards the wedding total. Payments are up to you and the balance is due 8 weeks prior to the wedding. Easy as pie.
DO WE NEED AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Absolutely. Why? It is a time that you can get comfortable working with Sarah and warm up to her style and the way she shoots. This always makes for a much smoother and more successful wedding day. Engagement sessions are held Tues- Fri only.
WHAT IS YOUR "PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE"?
Often times we are asked what our “photographic style” is? We don’t like being defined by a term or a trend. So simply, we are not “light and airy” or “moody”. There are more than just two ways to manipulate an image. Our goal is always to be classic and timeless and not rely on a trend of editing to define our photos. When you expose a photo properly, it’s easier to convey emotion through interaction of your subjects, rather than a certain lightness or darkness of your images. We want you to be able to look back 20 years from now and see your photos for the memories they are, rather than a trend at a certain time.
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER?
While Sarah often works as the sole photographer at her events, she will provide a second shooter upon request. Her most inclusive packages do include a second shooter.
DO YOU OFFER DIGITAL NEGATIVES?
The Silhouette Studio is based on tangible, custom products as well as amazing imagery. Since this is held to such a high regard, digital negatives are included in ALL of our wedding collections.
WHAT SETS YOU APART IN THIS INDUSTRY?
A couple of things, most importantly is the relationship we build with our clients. We strive to be easy to work with and this is achievable because we TRULY care. There is more you say? Yes, The Silhouette Studio prides herself on THE FASTEST TURNAROUND TIME in the industry on the completion of your photos hands down. Most couples see an entire highlight post before their honeymoon is over. Full galleries are delivered within 3-4 weeks.
Also let's talk tangible goods. I hands down believe 100% in tangible heirloom quality goods in your hands. We stare at screens all day and there is really nothing like walking past a beautiful print of your first kiss or flipping through a custom designed album on your anniversary. I make it an effort to make sure that all my collections are jam-packed with tangible items.
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! "
