I currently live in Columbus, GA with the love of my life, but I promise you that I am probably not there right now. I love to travel and am constantly on the go! Luckily, I have my dream job which allows me to visit new and familiar places, capturing beautiful memories along the way.
The best feeling for me is when a couple tells me they love the images I took or the video I made them. I’m codependent on your opinion that way, so you know I won’t stop until I know you’re happy with my work!
I’m very outgoing and love to joke around. Second, to people-pleasing with my camera, I love making others around me laugh and smile. I’m very easy to get along with and feel like I was born to interact at weddings!
A bit about me
When having my logo designed, I knew I wanted it to have a butterfly for my grandmother. At 90 years old, she was the sassiest and most amazing woman I had ever known. She was my best friend and always encouraged me to keep working towards my dreams. For her last birthday, we even got matching tattoos together (her idea). She had said she had always wanted one and my response was, “What are you waiting for?” I told her I would get one with her and we decided on butterflies - her favorite.
Behind the Butterfly
That ended up being the last birthday I would get to celebrate with her. Today, I’m so lucky that I have this beautiful reminder of her- not only on my finger, but now in my logo. Everytime someone asks about it, I get to tell them about the fearless Juanita May. Everytime I see a butterfly, I always think of her. I like to think that she is looking down on me and very proud of what I have accomplished.
It’s only appropriate that the video that started my videography career, was of her 90th birthday.
Let’s keep it real and happy! I want your images to look timeless and portray your personality. I want your wedding video to be a mini-movie of your wedding day so you can remember it forever. I try my best to be everything you didn’t know you needed on your wedding day. I’ve pinned boutineers, picked up coffee, and have even given one of my camera lenses to the photographer when their lens broke. I’m confident in what I do, so I have no problem being direct when something needs to get done.
Every wedding I shoot is just a reminder of how fortunate I am to document love! I’m invested in your story and wedding day. You can catch me tearing up behind the camera as you share a first look with your dad or sobbing in my house alone as I edit your wedding video. I know that if I feel this way about your final product, you will feel the same way!
Words cannot describe the INCREDIBLE work Sarah did! She made all of our wedding day picture dreams come true. She was so professional and efficient on the day of. Everyone loved working with her - from my husband, to my parents, and the bridal party! She gave us sneak pics the day after the wedding AND had all our pictures for us on our one month anniversary! The wedding pictures will last forever, and I’m so happy we had Sarah there to capture our day. Best decision ever!
There is no other way to describe Sarah other than absolutely incredible. She is the most talented photographer, and just an amazing person all around!! She took every little worry away, and made us feel comfortable and well taken care of. She is a hard worker and has an eye for what she does. She will go above and beyond to make sure she gets the best photos that reflect the couple she’s working with. We could go on forever about how much we loved her, and love our photos (proposal, engagement, bridals, ceremony, & reception). The biggest take away is to know that she will take care of you and will give you the most amazing experience possible!!! Use Sarah Stipanovich for your wedding!!
Sarah is an exceptional photographer. She took our engagement and wedding photos, and we loved the time we spent with her. She has an incredible eye- when we were driving to our engagement photo shoot spot, she pulled over because there was a spot that she HAD to get our photos at -which we ended up using for our save the dates! She is goofy and funny which makes you immediately comfortable with her, especially if you’re nervous taking photos. She says YES to any ideas you have, and if you don’t have any, she’ll make some up! She sent sneak peek shots the night after our wedding which I loved, and then got us all our photos quickly as well. She even put her personal black and white filter on one of our photos just the other day, 9 months after our wedding.
Travel is my second passion, so if your event is a little further away, don’t let the distance keep us apart!
My camera has taken me to Italy, Mexico, and Oregon- just to name a few! I’ve photographed weddings, proposals, and elopements in numerous locations.
Below is my current travel schedule. If we happen to be crossing paths, please reach out! I’d love to do a mini-photoshoot with your significant other or friends. Plus, you won’t have to pay any travel fees if we’re going to be crossing paths!
