Elegant. Fun. Relaxed Photography.

Dallas Wedding Photographer

The things you’ll never want to forget from your wedding day:

*The look on your parent's face when they see you in your wedding dress,

*The moment when you grab your love’s hand at the altar,

*The cheer as everyone celebrates your first kiss as husband and wife… 


And with an exceptional wedding photographer who prioritizes your family you’ll never have to miss those big smiles, happy tears, belly laughs and every emotion in between.


Welcome to Photography of Sarah Mae.

How do I serve you and your family?

  • I believe in using people's first names when speaking to them,  so I work hard to memorize your family's names before we meet face-to-face

  • I believe it's important for your family members to look and feel good in your photos, so I take the time to help everyone look their best

  • I make sure to provide a fun and high energy experience during family photos so that your family will enjoy this time together

  • Your parents are 



Engagement sessions are so much fun because there is literally zero pressure! You just get to hang out with your fiance like it's any ole other day and I get to be there and capture it all. It's all about capturing the feelings and love between each other rather than forcing a fake smile and laugh. My engagement sessions are all about having fun and capturing your truest selves.
My Process



This is the day you've been dreaming of for a LONG time. I want you to be able to experience all of it with the ease of knowing I will be there every step of the way capturing it all! Those tiny, in-between moments photographed add up to tell the whole story of how you and your partner got married. Your photographs will be so much more than just photos, they will become your link to reliving your experience, your emotions, and your love for your partner and your family and friends in attendance. I take this to heart when I photograph my couples - you are more than just another wedding couple that I have the honor to photograph, you are my friends the ones that I trult and deeply care about.

Kind Words from Past Couples

"Sarah did the photography for our wedding, and did an excellent job!! Not only did my pictures turn out beautifully, but Sarah was extremely thorough in planning our the entire day and making sure the event ran smoothly. I would recommend her services to anyone. Thanks, Sarah!"

-Sarah S.

"Sarah is an amazing photographer for special events and family photos! My wife and I worked with her to capture our wedding at the Perot Museum in Dallas, and she was a pleasure to work with from our first zoom call to the delivery of our incredible digital photo album.


Sarah’s prices and services matched everything we were hoping for. She helped us plan photos around the rest of our schedule and coordinated a second photographer Charity who we were also really impressed with. They both made what we were assured by others was going to be a hectic evening seem relatively effortless. Thank you! We highly recommend reaching out to Sarah to photograph any special occasion."

About Me

I'm Sarah Mae Hess

                                                       , and not to brag, but I’m definitely someone you want to have around on your wedding day. This process can be stressful, but I promise that when we’re together, it’ll feel more like old friends hanging out than a photoshoot. I’m a naturally sunny person who’s always smiling and cracking jokes, which makes capturing natural wedding day portraits my superpower.
