I am a storyteller, and photographs are one of the very few tangible things we will have left to look back on these precious moments. My portraiture will affect how you remember your most special time and how your wedding day is captured. 

the heart & soul behind what I do

my philosophy

The Process

Your wedding photographer will spend many hours with you on your wedding day and will be present at some of the most intimate moments of your lives. We believe it is super important to "click" with our couples-- not only to ensure a smooth wedding day, but to guarantee that you get those timeless, joyful portraits you've always dreamt of!

Getting to know you

The Process

Let's check our calendars and talk details! After we've verified your wedding date is available, we will send you a custom wedding portraiture proposal where you can choose your package, pay your retainer, and sign the contract! You're officially locked in as an SDP couple! 

Make it official

The Process

engagement session

Now that that technical stuff is out of the way, we can talk engagement portraits! We have tons of location suggestions and outfit ideas in our Sarah DeMaranville Photography Bridal Guide that I know you will love! Apprehensive about your first time in front of the camera? No worries! We rock at making our couples feel at ease and natural posing! 

The Process

wedding day planning

Sometime sixty to ninety days prior to your wedding day, we will meet for coffee or cocktails to discuss and plan your wedding day timeline! We want to make sure your wedding day runs smoothly and allows for all those romantic, joyful portraits you've seen on our Instagram! 

The Process

You've put so much time and thought into planning your big day! Once it's here, we don't want you to worry about a thing! Just relax and celebrate your love, while we take care of capturing all those candid, sweet moments in our timeless, joyful style!

your wedding day

The Process

Your wedding portraits will be featured on the SDP blog just forty-eight hours after your wedding day! Consider this your official sneak peek! Then, within two weeks of your big day, you will receive your custom USB with hundreds of images! If your package included an album, event book, or wall art, we will begin the design process immediately after your gallery is delivered!

"Sarah is amazing to work with! If you book with her for your wedding day you will not be disappointed! She is so much fun to work with while capturing all of the right moments. Having a photographer that is able to make you relax and who can generate natural instead of forced smiles makes for great pictures, wonderful memories and an experience you will cherish."

"Sarah met with us multiple times in the planning process, helping us develop a timeline, determining the types of photos we wanted, and finalizing everything. It was pouring rain on our wedding day but we made the best of it. The timeline we had created ended up putting us ahead of schedule, which made things a lot less stressful and gave us extra time to get some fun shots. We were really impressed with the quality when we received our photos. The photos were wonderfully edited, and Sarah was able to capture the most important parts of the day for us. We will definitely be using Sarah again in the future!"

"Let me start with this. HIRE SARAH. Book your wedding package with her NOW. She is hands down the most personable, professional, and easy going photographer that I have come into contact with. She made sure I got every shot I could dream of for my wedding + more. She made taking pictures fun and had my whole bridal party laughing. I am so glad I picked her. So go ahead... book now, or regret it later!"

"Sarah captured our emotions and personality in pictures with ease, and she already knew how picky I was going to be and what I wanted. She absolutely NAILED it and can’t thank her enough for making our wedding portraits beautiful!!"
