From the moment Stephanie and I walked through the doors of the salon, we could feel the buzz of excitement surrounding Maria & Adam’s wedding day. The girls were applying makeup, sipping mimosas, and singing along to the radio. That positive energy and joy continued throughout the couple’s emotional ceremony and wildly fun reception.

One of my favorite moments from Maria and Adam’s wedding was when the magnitude and emotion of the day visibly set in. For Maria, it was after finishing touches were made and her veil was placed delicately over her face. For Adam, it was when he saw his bride for the first time walking down the aisle. Separate moments, yet identical responses. Composing themselves one deep breath at a time.

Maria and Adam, thank you so much for letting me document the day you became husband and wife! Stephanie and I loved working with you both! Best wishes as you continue on this new adventure together!

~ Sarah Gudeman

In Maria’s words:
I found Sarah when she was doing the photography for a friend of mine’s wedding. I was at the Salon doing a breakfast bar and I recall being super impressed with how detail oriented she was. She was literally on the ground (in a dress–yet still proper) getting the EXACT shot she was looking for. She was so creative and so up beat the entire time. I researched NUMEROUS photographers trying to find the one that really caught my eye. I met with enough of them to know what I was looking for, and when I saw Sarah I was sold. Just watching her work, you can tell how passionate she is about her work!

I contacted Sarah shortly after my friend’s wedding to book her as our photographer. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was so pleasant and friendly, kind every step of the way, and so ORGANIZED. We stayed in touch throughout the planning process and got everything addressed ahead of time. I was able to pick the services I wanted, basically build my own photography package. She was so helpful.

For the wedding. I could not have asked or imagined anyone doing a better job. She WAS OUTSTANDING! I had requested two photographers, so Stephanie was also there to help. She was excellent as well. They both had great ideas and really captured our day. They tolerated our wedding party as well, which truly could not have been an easy task! I have so many wonderful things to say about Sarah and La Brisa, but this box only lets me type 2000 words, so I have to stop.

All in all, both ladies were excellent. I HIGHLY recommend them. Pictures are OUTSTANDING. VERY Professional. VERY organized. Excellent service all the way around.
