Wedding Investments

Welcome! Thank you for considering Sara Welburn Photography! I am so excited your here! Below is everything you need to know about me, my photography style and working with me on your special day!

This is one of the most magical days of your life. You want to someone there to capture every precious moment so you can relive the joy of it again and again. Especially when life gets hard (because it always does).

I can be the amazing, on-top-of-it, go-above-and-beyond photographer for you that captures it all. 

about the SWP wedding experience

everything you need to know

It's incredibly important to mesh well with your photographer personality-wise. I'm going to be the only person there with you for the WHOLE day. So... you kinda need to like me ;)

​ But just as importantly, you need to like my style and my images!! If all the photos you're pinning on pinterest are dark and moody, I'm probably not the photographer for you. But if you like bright, light, colorful images that embody the joy you feel, then I'm the gal for you!

Bright, vibrant, romantic.
joyful.

the swp

Once you've thoroughly looked through my website and Insta, and you're totally PSYCHED to have me be by your side on your wedding, the next step is to set up a phone call or "coffee" date to make sure we're the perfect fit!

After we chat, all I need to make that wedding day completely and totally YOURS, is a signed contract and the 50% non-refundable retainer! After you're all booked, I'll send a few email goodies your way to help you start prepping!

BOOKING AND PLANNING

Every wedding package comes with a complimentary engagement session, not just because those photos are amazing for your save the date cards, but because an engagement session with me is so vital to having a successful wedding day! At least from a photography perspective :) 

You'll get to know me better, and we'll get you super comfortable in front of the camera with my posing system so you're total pros for your big day!

engagement session

About two months before the wedding, I'll check in and we'll start really diving into things like your wedding timeline, family shot lists, the photos you absolutely HAVE to have, and anything else you want/need/have to tell me about your wedding day!

When creating your wedding timeline, we'll focus on making sure your most important aspects of the day get the time and attention they deserve - especially those gorgeous husband and wife portraits!!

timeline prep

Yay! You made it to the big day! You survived all the planning and the stress and now you just get to sit back and BE PRESENT and enjoy the heck out of every moment. I'll be there from start to finish to help you stay on time, keep everyone laughing and smiling, and preserve those precious memories that you're going to cherish forever! 

Your day will go by in a flash, and you're going to want every single moment documented to help you re-live it over and over again. 

wedding day

Get out those tissues because they have arrived!! You'll get an email from me with the super exciting words "Your Gallery is Ready!" Grab out some chips and guac and sit down with your new hubby to relive every sweet moment from your big day! 

Decide which ones you want to print to put in your new home as freaking husband and wife and submit the print order right from your gallery! Professional printing for Walgreens prices? Yes please!

gallery delivery

If your wedding package included an album (or if you decide to purchase one from your gallery) just go through your gallery and "favorite" the photos you want included in your album!

 I do all of the hard work of designing and then you'll get an email asking you to proof your album before it goes to the printers! Once you're totally in love with it, just wait a few days and it'll be at your door!

Ashlen C.

Working with Sara was lovely. Her photos are lovely and the experience was lovely. I am someone who gets very nervous for photo shoots, but she was so comfortable and fun to work with, and her energy and positivity was infectious.

FAQs

Every Wedding Package (other than elopements) comes with a complimentary engagement session because this session is KEY to having a smooth, seamless wedding day experience... at least as far as posing goes!

We'll take a whole hour and a half to get to know each other and you'll learn all about my posing system. We'll have that whole time to practice and get you comfortable in front of the camera so you're ready to hit the ground running on your wedding day and not miss a single thing!

Yes, I love to travel! I mainly serve the San Antonio metro area, but I've shot wedding along the Gulf of Mexico, in the mountains of Utah, and lots of other fun places! If there's someplace super special to you, then it's special to me and I want to help you have a magical experience there! 

I do charge travel fees for anywhere outside of San Antonio. If you can't wait to have me there on your adventurous wedding day, then email me ASAP for a custom travel price!

are you willing to travel?
