The Engagement Experience
Hello! I'm Sarah Mae.
When I'm not running my wedding and family photography business you can find me chasing my toddlers, Maverick and Ray, around the house, lol. I love light and exploring the beauty of North Texas. I feel so grateful to have the opportunity to share the beauty I see in you and this gorgeous place we call home through the images we capture together!
I've heard from a number of brides who have said something like, "OMG I booked a wedding photographer and after our engagement session I realized we're not a good fit but now I'm stuck in a contract with them!" I've always felt so bad for these sweet brides because wedding photography is NOT something you want to be unhappy with on your big day!
That's why I've decided to create a system that allows us to work together BEFORE you have to make that big decision of booking your wedding photographer. And I'm proud to say that 90% of brides who have gone through this system, have booked me for their wedding. The difference is, this time they KNOW for sure that they wont be disappointed on their wedding day!!
Kind words from past clients
"Sarah did my Fiancé AJ and I's engagement photos at Grapevine lake. She is so easy to get comfortable with, keeps you laughing and smiling making the perfect candid photo ops. She really captures the essence of the beauty in nature itself in the background of shots.
She has such a sweet and friendly demeanor and is one of those people that's just naturally likeable. I'm very appreciative that she asked about any particular poses we would like before the shoot and impressed she remembered them day of as I'm timid about asking for things - luckily I didn't have to!
I'm also grateful that she asked about any insecurities prior as I have a skin condition that makes my pigment uneven and photographers I have used the past have edited it out- without even asking me, making me feel like its something I should hide, Sarah did not do so and I'm very appreciative of that as well.
This photo makes me feel like my fiance and I are Instagram models! Seriously this is AD quality! Of the hundreds of photographers in the world Sarah is a true gem!

"We couldn't have picked a better photographer for our engagement and wedding photos. Sarah seemed to be just as excited as I was during the process. It was a no-brainer to continue to work with her after our engagement photoshoot for our wedding photos too. She put so much time into getting to know us, what we like, researching our wedding venue (Perot Museum) and setting a schedule of where to take photos and at what time in the evening would be best. She was easy to get in touch with pre and post wedding and took the time to answer any questions we had, even late at night. We received sneek peaks of each session (engagement and wedding) very quickly and the quality was great. We're looking forward to working with her in the years to come. I would highly recommend her for your wedding, family photos or anything you want professional captured."

I am a natural, candid photographer (like the paparazzi, but without the big ugly flash and way less pushy). During our photoshoot I will focus on documenting YOU. Who you are, what you enjoy together, the little quirks that make your love strong.
The very first step to planning your engagement experience is to schedule a phone call so I can get to know you more. This is a 15 minute meet & greet to learn more about what your vision is for your photos.
After we chat on the phone I will follow up with you in an email and send over what's included in the engagement session as well as an online booking form for the shoot. You will also receive a complimentary style guide that will walk you through choosing your outfits!
During the session I will work to make you feel as laid back and comfortable as possible. Think of it as the two of you hanging out together, cuddling, laughing, playing, and having a special, romantic time each other. I'll direct you so you don't feel awkward, and capture some candid moments as you relax.
After the session I will set up an online video meeting to go over your images, pick out your free goodies, as well as answer any of your questions you have about our wedding packages. You will be offered the opportunity to purchase any additional products or digitals from your session if you'd like. When you choose me for your wedding though, the entire engagement session gallery is gifted to you!
