Well, Sarah's back with an announcement: she's now based in Atlanta, but will also stay very accessible to the Washington D.C., Virginia, and Maryland areas (her former stomping ground) at no additional travel cost. (But we'll get to that later.) The last time we talked about Sarah, we were all about her refreshing photography style. This time, let's get into how Sarah pulls off all these stunningly warm, and natural wedding shots. Hint: It's all about YOU… When Sarah Gormley first started her wedding photography business, she spent a lot of time thinking about the people she wanted to work with. She decided that she wanted her niche to be people who prioritized love above anything else on their wedding day — love of their partners, love of their families, and love of their closest friends. That's why no matter who and where she shoots, the thing that all of Sarah's wedding photos have in common is an emphasis on the people, their love, and the overall vibe that that attitude creates on their wedding day. How does she get to know her peeps so well? When spending time with a couple before their wedding day (first consultation, engagement sessions, etc.) Sarah's all about getting the logistics conversation to be as quick and easy as possible, so that you can move on to actually getting to know each other. Having a relationship with my couples is not only something I love about what I do — it's essential for taking the sorts of moment-driven photos that I know my couples are looking for. I've found that it's so important to invest time in really getting to know the people I work with so that they can let their guard down and reveal themselves to the camera in honest, candid moments. That same desire to have you trust and be comfortable with her shapes Sarah Gormley's awesome business practices. As she put it, "I want my couples to trust me and understand that they drive my business, not their money." So she keeps her pricing straight-forward and accessible to people looking to have small, intimate weddings. Sarah Gormley Photography has just two options: One $3200 flat fee for weddings within the United States — remember that whole "no additional cost" thing I mentioned? And one flat fee for International weddings. Sarah gets that planning a wedding can be logistically overwhelming, so her flat rates make it so that you don't have to manage her travel plans on top of everything else. Sarah's got a serious handle on this whole "people first" business practice thing. If your goal is to get warm, honest, and emotional wedding images, and build awesome relationships with everyone who'll be involved in your wedding, then book Sarah Gormley and accomplish your goal!
