WEDDINGS

modern day storytelling

Congratulations! Whether you plan to throw a gigantic ballroom bash or keep it simple with a quiet an intimate elopement, having an experienced photographer is one of the most important pieces of planning your wedding day. 

As a documentary photographer, my focus is honest storytelling  through imagery by capturing the events as it happens so you can relive the day each time you view your photos. My style is blending authentic moments with modernized fine art to create timeless photographs that both tell a story and captivates. I create emotive, genuine, vibrantly rich, and joyful images for the couple that loves the art of storytelling through photography.

your love is honest.
 your pictures should be, too.

Need a Family Photographer? 

I'm the artist behind SGW Photography—the home for my love of photography turned into a full-time profession. I'm ecstatic that you're here to consider me for potentially capturing your wedding!

I wrote this site with the hope that I can speak to you directly through my words and my work since, as an introvert, words can fail me in person. This way, you have a better idea about me and if I'm the photographer for you. My whole purpose is creating stories through imagery and I'd love to be able to work with you in doing just that.

i'm sabrina

"Sabrina was easy to work with. She made as feel comfortable in front of the camera and was patient with our wedding party, getting everyone together for photos. It was fun to look at the photos she captured afterwards especially the candid moments that I didn't remember."

engagement

Sabrina photographed our engagement photos in Philadelphia then our wedding in Jamaica, it was great to have that consistency with our images and to have her photograph our wedding day so beautifully(especially during covid). She is very detailed and loves what she does and that shows in the beautiful images she captures!

"SHE IS VERY DETAILED AND LOVES WHAT SHE DOES"

Kind Words

After photographing over a hundred weddings over the years, I have found that I'm not the perfect fit for every couple. That’s why this process begins with a conversation.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have  and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other. Don't worry, if it's not me, I am happy to help find you a photographer that fits you better!

let's chat!

01.

I am a huge fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you.

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. I have found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. Plus, these sessions are amazing ice breakers and kind of a 'trial run' experience of what working with me will be like.

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

02.

I check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day. This is to create a custom timeline tailored to capture every part of your day.

This list ensures your wedding receives the full coverage of editorial-ready photographs that look like they came straight out of a magazine! A photography-friendly timeline ensures a beautifully curated vision of your big day.

You'll be fully prepared for what to do and have a full idea of how I like to capture the wedding day. Whether I'm guiding you or simply letting you be as you are, your photos will always showcase you being in your most purest element—yourself.

frequently asked questions

Sweet! To reserve your wedding date, we’ll need a completed contract and a $1000 deposit. The booking process is done all online to make it easier for you! The remaining balance will be due 1 week before the wedding.

01. WE LOVE YOUR WORK AND WE’RE READY TO BOOK! WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP?

The exact amount varies from wedding to wedding. Your online gallery will come loaded with fully-edited high resolution to share with friends and family. You’re also welcome to share your wedding photos on social media or make gift prints for friends.

02. HOW MANY PHOTOS ARE TYPICALLY INCLUDED AND CAN WE PRINT THE PHOTOS OURSELVES?

My style is blending photojournalism with fine art imagery. I capture weddings as unobtrusively as possible for rich, genuine storytelling but with a sprinkle of classic portraiture.  I love colorful, true tones and playful lighting. I create art with the the look and feel of editorial candid film.

03. WHAT’S YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?

My specialty lies with still photography only. However, I have a fantastic list of local videographers I can supply you with. 

04. do you offer video?

Yes, I always have a helping assistant/second photographer who will be with me for large scale events. Smaller events will usually just include me only.

05. DO YOU HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?

 I do all my editing and retouching myself. In the contract I state it takes anywhere between 6-8 weeks. However realistically speaking, it's usually 4-6 week.

06. HOW LONG DO YOU TAKE TO DELIVER THE PHOTOS?

Yes, I do! In fact, they're my favorite type of weddings to cover. I love the intimacy of a joyous occasion between a few people or just the two of you. Even if your ceremony is nothing more than ten minutes in front of a court judge, it's still a moment worth documenting. Trust me.

07. DO YOU COVER MICRO-WEDDINGS AND ELOEPEMENTS? 

Oh yeah, definitely. As a fellow awkward person, I can relate entirely to the chaos of having to trust and let a stranger take a photograph of you. That's why after years of doing this, I like to think I know what to say and do to make people feel comfortable around me. Whether giving cues, prompts, or just letting you peek behind my camera, my job is to ensure you walk away feeling confident that your photos will look amazing.

08. I'M SUPER AWKWARD IN PICTURES. CAN YOU HELP WITH THAT?

I'll be in touch in soon!

Thank You!
