Abby is one of the kindest & brightest people you will ever meet. Her contagious personality & her natural ability to make a person feel special made us love her as a friend, but also a perfect part of our team. Her ability to think outside the box & immediately adapt to any situation makes her the perfect person to have on your wedding day. Not only that,, but she will leave you feeling confident, loved and supported every step of the way. We are so so honored that she has become one of our dearest and closest friends. She brings so much joy to every part of the day & the best moves to the dance floor.
Abby books her own weddings through David & Sarah. Our couples have an opportunity to book Abby as their photographer and still get the same David & Sarah experience.
A. We do! We actually prefer it & give a small discount to clients who book both for their wedding. Working as a team together is super fun and easy for us; we work really well together and having a team that works together consistently is really beneficial (for all involved!!).
A. We love having a family shot list beforehand (we get all that info in a questionnaire we send out before your wedding!), but other than that, we like to capture things as they happen naturally. We don't want your mom fake buttoning up your dress or your bridesmaids fake laughing. We want to capture you on your day, exactly how it happened in all its raw beauty. We make sure we capture the important details that we see while also capturing those heirloom photos like portraits of your family.
A. As a general rule, we like to say 4-6 weeks for photos and 6-8 weeks for films. This varies on the time of year that you get married but we always try our best to get you your photos & films as soon as we can!
A. Because we license our music (gotta be legit!) it limits the chances of your song choice being available. We're open to suggestions but can't guarantee that the song is available to license. Part of our creative process is finding music that makes us feel your day all over again. We pay great attention to the music in your film and make sure it fits you & your day perfectly.
A. If we have the spot open, it's yours! However, we're currently booked up about a year in advance, with some exceptions. We are full for 2019 and are already halfway booked for 2020— definitely send us a message for availability & pricing!
A. YAY, it's easy! Drop us a note on our contact page. From there, we send you an electronic brochure to choose your services and get to know us more and a contract for you to look over and sign once you decide. Once we get that and your 50% retainer, your date is booked and the train is rollin'!
My husband and I were on the fence about videography, but THANK GOODNESS we took the leap and booked David & Sarah. It is SO important to surround yourself with people you feel comfortable around and click with on your wedding day, and Sarah and David are so easy to get along with, it made for a fun, relaxing day. In terms of their work, they are masters at their profession. We absolutely LOVE our wedding video and would say their portfolio is 100% indicative of the style of video they will produce for you. DO IT and book David & Sarah. It will be one of the best decisions you make for your big day.

David and Sarah were one of the greatest blessings of our wedding day. Their skill is obvious just by looking through their photos, but they also are just such a presence of peace and joy on such an important day. Our photos are LEGITIMATELY magical and they captured the day in such a special and beautiful way.

by the time our wedding came around it really felt like friends were shooting our photos. They helped us stay on schedule and really helped us feel at ease. And when the photos and video came in about a month later, let me tell you, you WILL be blown away! Nothing felt or looked too posed or forced, every photo had a very natural feel to them. They do an amazing job (even while singing and dancing up a storm ;))

One of the greatest joys of the wedding planning process, and of course our wedding day… David and Sarah brought so much fun and style to everything they touched. we're so grateful that they captured the magic we felt that day. So many of our friends and family asked who did our photos-- my good friends from college just booked them for their own wedding next year. We seriously cannot recommend them enough!
