Review Sknow Photo by Sarah Mitchell
Thank you for submitting your review. All submissions are reviewed before being published.
Sarah came highly recommended by multiple coworkers of mine who raved about their experience at their weddings! Upon meeting with Sarah and her husband Dave their professionalism and passion were evident. They made my husband and I feel at ease and the quality of their photos was undeniable.
Planning a wedding is stressful but Sarah's attention to detail and responsiveness to email/phone was a huge relief and greatly appreciated. The surveys asking for what pictures you'd like with your loved ones came in very handy to capture the day with the people who mean the most to you. The final product were the most beautiful pictures I've ever been in. The quality of the work was so fantastic the venue asked if they could use her photos to update their website because they'd never seen it photographed so beautifully! We enjoyed getting to know Sarah and Dave and are so grateful to have amazing photos to look back on our wedding day.
Sknow Photo - AMAZING!
Sarah & Dave are THE best photographers and I couldn't imagine my wedding without them. I met them at a bridal convention in Baltimore a year ahead of my wedding and right then and there knew they HAD to be my photographers. Their portfolio was amazing and they were so nice!
Sarah was always so responsive and helpful. She really went above and beyond and was always a call, test, or email away. You can tell that she REALLY cares about her brides. One afternoon I emailed her a little frantically as I was trying to work out the "timeline" and she basically helped me create the PERFECT timeline (and made it seem so easy!)
When Sarah and I talked a few days before the wedding to make sure everything was all set, I mentioned to her that me and my fiancé wanted more "candid" moments vs. posed pictures of the two of us. She did just that - and the images could not have turned out better. As the day approached, there was rain in the forecast pretty much all day. But her and Dave monitored the weather to make sure we could get some outside shots when the rain was slowest. Again, how sweet of them!
Sarah had the "sneak peak" photos and blog post ready in 10 days and ALL photos done in about a month from my April wedding date - which was SO impressive. They were AMAZING. Many of my engaged friends have mentioned that they have sent along our wedding photos to their photographers as inspiration.
We are SO SO thankful & happy that Sarah & Dave traveled all the way from Richmond, VA to shoot our wedding!
Fantastic Photographer - Fantastic Photos
Sarah and her husband were a joy to work with. After looking at every photo on her blog, I knew she was the photographer we needed.
We arranged our complimentary engagement photo shoot and went back and forth on the weather that day, but in the end we had a nice cloudy day which worked great for the colors of the photos. As we got out of the car, my husband informed me that this was going to be torture. Once we started the photo shoot, Sarah made him feel comfortable and the photos that came out of it were amazing!
Sarah showed up early on our wedding day and set everything up. She was very organized with the photos I had requested before the wedding and then was inconspicuous during the wedding while still capturing all the important moments. After the wedding, we took so many pictures, but again Sarah's organization was awesome and we breezed through all of the photos I wanted and were off to the reception very quickly.
One of the cool things Sarah had was an iPad at the reception that showed all the pictures she had taken and she provided all of our guests with links to our pictures. She put some up very quickly online which our family really appreciated. Once all the photos were ready I couldn't stop looking at them. They were so good and brought back all of the memories from the wedding!
Long story short, I have nothing but positive things to say about Sknow Photo! I have, without hesitation, recommended her to all of my friends and would recommend her to everyone.
I cannot explain how greatful I am to have found Sarah. She was our perfect wedding photographer! Truly getting our vision and never pushing or demanding perfection. Sarah is so great at sitting back, listening and in a smallest of opportunities capturing the rarest of moments. She has the ability to make you feel so comfortable in the moment that she disappears behind the camera and allows the magic to happen organically. We fell in love with Sarah and her work so head over heels that when we found out we were expecting our first baby we reached back out to Sarah even though she had moved out of the D.C. area down to Richmond knowing it'd be a long shot but to our great surprise and joy she didn't hesitate to again be part of another magical moment in our lives!! She's amazing!
The best of the best
My husband and I hired Sknow Photography as our wedding photographers. We were NOT let down, to the first meeting in their beautiful studio, to prompt and kind responses to my e-mails over the months leading up to our big day, I knew from the moment we met that they were a great fit! Come our wedding day Sarah and Dave were prompt, ready to jump in feet first and work around our wedding day schedule and with the other vendors at the wedding. Once the wedding was over, we could never have imagined the class of pictures to come back in our sneak peak. They took the most stunning pictures, and the memories that were captured were worth every. single. penny! If you go with someone else, you're getting far from the best!
**Update: Since receiving our entire photo album, I have not stopped getting compliments on the quality of the pictures that Sarah and Dave took. Between printing some out or giving albums made for family, the quality is still impeccable and I can't help but go back and continue to view the pictures. Not to mention, Sarah and Dave are amazing to work with as well!
Sarah was great!!!
We couldn't have been luckier to have won a discount off of our wedding photography package with Sknow Photo. I found Sarah at a bridal expo and loved her pictures more then any of the others there so I entered into the drawing for a photo package. Never did I think I would WIN... I spent the next two years keeping contact with Sarah up until the wedding and she was so great to work with!!!! She is always so helpful, quick to respond to any questions, and always willing to explain anything you don't understand! Although our wedding was in PA we have family in VA and look forward to working with Sarah and Dave over the next few decades in anything that we want to capture. I can't wait to have them work with us as our family gets bigger. They are both so sweet and so easy to work with. It's always so hard to find someone you click with that is taking your picture and I feel as though they would make it easy for anyone!!!
Thanks again Sarah, you guys are great!!!
