“In short, Sarah was the perfect photographer for our wedding. It was a real pleasure having her shoot our big day and all the day-of preparations. Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. Aside from her courteous and professional attitude, she really went the extra mile to get some gorgeous photos. She works hard but her work looks effortless and joyous. During the wedding, we received lots of feedback from guests saying how great the photographer is — and that was BEFORE anyone even saw any of the photos. When Sarah sent us the photos, we were astounded by how they came out — it was amazing to be able to relive the entire day of our wedding. She really caught the happiness and warmth from each guest and every shot is a cherished memory of our big day. We had many personal touches incorporated into the ceremony and reception that Sarah’s keen eye for details captured beautifully. Thanks to Sarah, our wedding photos will be treasured forever.” ~Victoria & Kieron

“My life as a fiancé and preparing for my wedding, consisted on pinning on pinterest and oohing and aahing over lovely wedding blogs and magazines. I knew I wasn’t going to have a beachfront, floral infused wedding, but I wanted to remember that beautiful day and have the photographs to look back on. I found Sarah from hazelwood photo on ruffled, and I immediately looked on her webpage. I absolutely LOVED her approach to the wedding pictures, the only thing was she lived in Portland, and I am in Tucson, Arizona. Thankfully, she was happy to come down for our event and I got my pictures back today, and Oh My Goodness, I would tell you a thousand times over and over again to book her. I looked at my gallery and I was there again. I looked prettier than I have ever seen myself, she captured shots that took me back. I had a huge party and not a lot of room as I was getting ready and I felt like I was running behind but sarah kept it together for me, and delicately placed us perfectly. i am forever grateful that I have a timeless gallery of wedding pictures. Sarah is very professional and always has communicated super well. thank you sarah!!!” ~Eliza

“I am in the design/photography industry, so naturally I scrutinized photographers before deciding on one for our wedding. I reviewed Hazelwood’s portfolio many times and each time I was struck by the images of couples not just gorgeous because of their wedding garb and styling, but for the way Sarah captured the subtle light nuances, spontaneous compositions and expressions, and spirit of the event that is unique to each couple. Sarah succeeds in capturing not only the posed and suspected moments of a wedding, but the details, the emotions, and the moments you didn’t expect to see that make up the day. Upon meeting, we were instantly impressed with her level of professionalism, confidence and seriousness mixed with kindness that makes you trust her and know that her presence will not be a hinderance on your big day. Although quality was more important to us than price, Hazelwood’s rates were also surprisingly very reasonable compared to the competition. Sarah was very responsive to all my inquiries before the event, was flexible in meeting all of our needs, and was very gracious even when I handed her a laundry list of items I wanted her to capture in the short time frame. She somehow managed to check off every one, and then some! A day after, I was elated to receive a few select images to whet our appetites for what was to come. We received our images in exactly the time that we were quoted. They were displayed on a lovely and easy that enabled us to share with guests, mark selects and order prints. The images blew our minds and expectations! We got the requested shots, and also shots of every hand crafted detail, images of our vendors in action, and tons of candid images of our guests, toasts, and venue throughout the evening. Also, I was surprised to find Sarah had spontaneously composed shots of the decor and details around my home as I was getting ready. These summed up our vibe and style and made the collection feel so personal, intimate, and truly ours.” ~ Amber

“I was very careful about hiring a photographer for my wedding. To me this was one of the most important parts of the wedding since the photos are your memories. I found Sarah on a blog and fell in love with her pictures and styling right away. Even though I live in Los Angeles she was very accommodating to make time to meet with us when she was out here. She is very sweet and professional. The first time we met, I left and told my husband that she is the kind of person I would totally be friends with. After we hired her, she was great again about scheduling our engagement photos and even suggested the location which we were so happy with- Catalina Island! On our wedding day- this girl worked her butt off!! We had a lot of pictures to take and she made everything happen. Sarah is totally committed to making you happy. Even when I could tell she was probably exhausted and trying to wrangle everyone in for photos she stayed calm and with a smile on her face. Also- she is very good about giving direction. My husband and I were a little clueless but Sarah totally helped us. When we got our pictures back I just about died (in a good way). I’m just completely blown away by how amazing they look. Sarah caught all the right moments and everything turned out gorgeous! I wish I had another event I could hire her for. I would recommend her to any of my friends.” ~Jessica

“Hazelwood Photo is the absolute best of the best and Sarah is a true visionary and artist. Her impeccable attention to detail, creative eye and wonderful suggestions shine through in her amazingly gorgeous photos of our wedding and engagement, which we couldn’t possibly be happier with. Furthermore her professionalism, keen photographic sensibilites and fun personality make her an absolute delight to work with. Her extraordinary photos of our wedding were even featured on Ruffled wedding blog, which is most certainly a testament to the quality and beauty of her work. We can’t wait to work with Hazelwood Photo again soon and cannot recommend them highly enough!” ~Laurel & Nader
