Our wedding photos turned out amazing, all thanks to Sarah!!! The quality of the images are not even comparable to most wedding photography I have seen - the pictures are perfection! We wanted images that were real and not too "cheesy" - we had expressed this to Sarah and she totally nailed it! I am so happy we chose Sarah for our wedding photographer! The price paid is well worth the images you receive. She comes highly recommended by both my husband and I :)

Sarah is amazing!!
Our first meeting was very comfortable and relaxed, so my husband and I knew instantly that she would be the perfect photographer for our engagement and wedding photos. She listened to what we wanted and offered suggestions.
Sarah went above and beyond our expectations as she scouted locations for both our engagement and wedding photos and had excellent ideas for poses (nothing awkward). She made us (and our wedding party) feel very comfortable. Sarah and her second shooter were quick and efficient so we were able to use multiple locations for our shots. (Our groomsmen expressed their satisfaction with how quick photos were finished on the wedding day).
Sarah has excellent style in her photos as well. We have had many compliments on how beautiful and unique our photos are. She uses film for many pictures which makes the photos even more beautiful!
We received both our engagement and wedding photos in a timely matter and enjoyed receiving sneak peeks on social media from her.
If you are looking for a photographer - my husband and I highly recommend Sarah!

It was such a pleasure working with Sarah for our engagement and wedding photos. She was extremely friendly, responsive and professional to work with. One of the things that I really liked about Sarah was that she was open to our ideas and was willing to hash out ideas for both our engagement and wedding photos - even if it meant taking photos in a swarm of mosquitoes by the water!
Exactly 2 months from the day that we got married Sarah had sent us a link to our wedding photos. Boy, were we happy!
I would highly recommend Sarah for anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer!

Sarah is beyond fantastic and a photographer I would not hesitate to recommend!! Especially for couples who are not professional models as her photos are not posey and she makes it so easy to be in front of the camera. Sarah is very professional and focused on doing her very best in capturing all the beautiful moments of your wedding day and engagement session. She's always quick to respond to emails and always has great suggestions. She's ultra talented and has an amazing eye. We could not be happier with the beautiful images she captured of our special day!

Sarah is an AMAZING photographer! She never looses focus on what she is doing and she is very professional. All our photos turned out exactly how I envisioned them to be. Sarah is very friendly as well and listens to what you want and how you want your photos to turn out. I LOVE that she uses film as well. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and family.

• Sarah is incredibly personable, relaxed, and kind. She went out of her way on numerous occasions to go above and beyond for us. I cannot begin to describe how impressed we were with the exceptional quality of the engagement and photobooth photos! For our engagement shots she was extremely flexible on locations and resourceful for helping us establish the style we had in mind. On our wedding day, she had hired an excellent second photographer and assistant then managed everyone with professionalism and poise to facilitate the numerous pictures we asked of her and her team! Her laid back attitude and positivity makes her easy to love, we were so happy at how well her and her team fit in with our family and guests. We are so excited to see the final product and have every confidence that the photos and album will surpass our expectations. I highly recommend Sarah Vaughan Photography, she never ceases to amaze us with her exceptional quality of service and product.

Our wedding was absolutely fabulous, and this was due in no small part to Sarah and her second shooter Natalie.
Our engagement session gave us the opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera and a chance to get to know Sarah. She provided an incredible amount of flexibility in terms of scheduling and was fantastic at responding to our queries quickly. On top of the logistical bits, it was immediately evident that Sarah has a great deal of talent and a fabulous eye for locations.
Leading up to the wedding itself, I was never more than a few hour wait from receiving a response from Sarah. This was undoubtedly appreciated, as it helped minimize stress on our end. She was exceptionally organized, created an itinerary to match what we requested and completely accommodated any adjustments we needed to make.
On the day of, Sarah was early to meet up with us and got to capturing the details right away. Small touches like an extra bottle of water in her car for me (thanks to her husband!) really made the day seamless. She made sure to stick to our tight schedule and ensured that we were comfortable with making a minor adjustment to the itinerary so that we could capture the best light in the evening. We had family members and friends remark at how personable she and Natalie were, yet how it barely felt that they were there in any intrusive sense. I think this was really key to some of the candid shots that they took throughout the evening. She also wasn't afraid to change things up by using a film based camera for some of the shots, which give us some of the best hard copy keepsakes I could imagine - we even have the negatives for future printing purposes!
I am so pleased with how the photos turned out and with how pleasant Sarah was throughout the entire process. The product she turns out is amazing and she doesn't spare any detail. I would definitely recommend her to family, friends or strangers.

How can I say in words how great Sarah is? Honestly, her work speaks for itself! Sarah is so comfortable to work with. She is open, friendly, professional, and when you meet her it feels like you've known her for years. Communicating with Sarah was so easy and her responses always came quickly. She really listened and understood the feel of our wedding, the love an labour that was going into it. She captured our wedding day and the essence of the day so beautifully that in the years to come we'll be able to look through the pictures and relive that day so vividly.
Sarah, thank you again and again for the incredible photos you captured for us. We hope the opportunity to work with you comes again soon!

Sarah was an exceptional photographer capturing lovely, touching and frankly exceptional moments for us both. Sarah responded to a bride's worst case scenario - our photographer was unable to come to our Wedding three days before the event!! We found Sarah based on a recommendation and immediately Sarah responded to our call and agreed to our date. Sarah was prompt, super professional, kind, funny, and an expert at moving elegantly in and around our event. The photographs came back right on time and were lovely. Sarah's artistry is immediately apparent in every image we have. We LOVE our photos and so do all our friends! We were honoured to have Sarah as a very special part of our Wedding celebration. We would recommend Sarah's work to anyone and everyone. She was the perfect photographer for us.
