sgw photography

I'm excited to have you here! By now you already have your venue picked out and the whole theme for what you have in mind. Now all you need is that someone who can document it from start to finish so you can relive it again and again.

I know a wedding photographer who believes in capturing people true to themselves without the dramatic or stiff poses. Someone who is a lover of movement, laughter, and genuine interaction between couples, friends, and loved ones. Someone who is quietly snapping away your joys and tears all while being a helping hand to get the memorable shots.

It's me. I'm that person. It's nice to meet you!

Hi Beautiful

learn more about sabrina

I'm so excited that you are interested in choosing me to document your wedding! I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images on film at the age of 20 while attending the Art Institute of Philadelphia. At the time, my major was in Media Animation, but like most college students, I ended up going another direction. It started with a photo displayed on the walls. A beautiful autumn day and couple walking in the park. That piece of art drew me in like it was painting. The rest is history. As an artist, my life revolves around capturing little life's moments just as they are.

"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."

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!

After photographing so many 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.

I take on only six weddings per year so I can give them my utmost fullest attention, so I'm very selective about who I work with. It's important we work well together when creating art.

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.

LET's CONNECT

Step One

You did it! We decided to make it official and now you're ready to book. Once we confirm this, I send over a custom online booking proposal so you can review the package, sign the contract, and pay a deposit of $1000 to hold the date. Now that you're officially booked, the next step is a fun one...

Step Two

Save the date

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.

Engagements

Step Three

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.

Timeline

Step Four

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. The Engagement session was just a trial run, but this time 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.

After the wedding day, a feature Blog post goes out with a curated gallery of beautiful highlights of your day! Share with friends and family who couldn't make it or simply wishes to see. Let them relive the experience sooner than later and enjoy a taste of what is to come.


The Big Day

Step Five

A fully finished gallery is delivered to your email within 4-6 weeks. Every single photo is curated and retouched for polished results. I take pride in being able to say I do all my own editing using the latest software and enhancements—I'm a one woman art machine. Because of this, I allow myself a window frame where I can edit with the utmost attention to detail.

The relationship doesn't end after delivering your photographs. I  want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids (yes, even the furry kind!), I would love to document your growing family.

Step Six

The Process

MORE DETAILS

One of the best ways to make your wedding memories last is by ordering an album. You can either have your album included in the collection or choose to purchase it separately.

These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on coffee tables.

All albums must be prepaid before design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include three rounds of revision. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day. 

ALBUMS

All wedding collections include a complimentary engagement session. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how I work. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why I've found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.

Engagement sessions also allow you to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, you can do your session anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.

How many photos are typically included and can we print the photos ourselves?

Travel fees are added for any wedding outside of a 50 mile radius from my studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Fees can also vary depending on location (ex. New York City is considered 'local'), so please ask for more details.

When do you charge travel fees?
