YOU MIGHT BE THE PERFECT #SZPDREAMfamily IF...

"The photos tell the story & bring back every feeling from our wedding day"

"We had the honor of Sara Zarrella Photography at our wedding and they are incredible. From the beautiful engagement shoot in Newport to the 150 person beach wedding at The Newport Beach House, they did an amazing job. The photos tell the story and bring back every feeling from our wedding day and we look at them feeling laughter and tears. Sara and her team, are truly talented and captured everything; we will treasure these forever. Thank you so much!!"  - Nicole, Bride

"We feel that Sara and her staff have
become part of our family." 

"My husband and I have been using Sara Zarrella Photography for the past 10 years. Sara and her staff are very professional and always wonderful to work with. They always make sure we are incredibly comfortable and consistently deliver the best photography has to offer. We feel that Sara and her staff have become part of our family. They have captured every significant moment of our lives together from our engagement pictures to our wedding, our maternity pictures to our children’s first years of life. I wouldn’t have trusted these once in a lifetime memories to any other studio! It is truly a blessing to have these memories forever lasting in beautiful photographs! We look forward to many more years with Sara Zarrella Photography!" - Hutchinson Family

"I know that I have found my photographer for life!"

“The energy you get from [Sara] when you first meet with her is the energy she brings to your wedding day. I felt like I had my good girlfriend shooting my wedding! I know that I have found my photographer for life, and I’m looking forward to doing my maternity pictures and future family photos with her.” - Caitlin, Bride

"Hiring Sara is the best decision you can make for your wedding!"

"We can’t say enough good things about Sara Zarrella Photography!!! Hiring Sara is the best decision you can make for your wedding! Sara is so easy to work with and very helpful when it comes to planning the timeline of your day. Plus, her photos are AMAZING! " - Sarah, Bride

"If I could give more stars, I would!"

"Sara Zarrella and her team are phenomenal! They were professional, creative, and an overall joy to be around on our wedding day. Pre-wedding: Sara is organized, detail-oriented, and responsive. The photos turned out to be absolutely incredible and Sara delivered on her promise of a very long and detailed shot list that we had planned. Sara gives just enough direction to get a great shot but also makes the photos feel natural and authentic. Would also highly recommend the "Dress Session"! Sara and her team were by way our favorite vendor we worked with. If I could give more stars, I would!" - Kristin, Bride

"Dan totally exceeded our expectations with the images he took at our wedding!"

"Where do I begin...After seeing the images he took at my brother wedding, I knew we had to have him photograph our wedding. Dan was very prompt, he is not only experienced but absolutely incredible at what he does. Dan totally exceeded our expectations with the images he took at our wedding! After photographing two family weddings, we cherish all he captured!" - Amy, Bride

"From the very beginning of our wedding process, Kelly knew she wanted Sara Zarrella. Kelly was attracted to Sara's style, subtleties, and unique shots that quite honestly she did not find in other photographers that our friends recommended. What makes her stand out was the photos of both the little, poignant moments, as well as the grandiose, larger-than-life shots that repeatedly make us go "wow." My wife has commented many times that the day of the wedding Sara was not only the photographer but also a friend."  -  Patrick, Groom

"Sara was not only the photographer, but also a friend."

"From the very beginning of our wedding process, Kelly knew she wanted Sara Zarrella. Kelly was attracted to Sara's style, subtleties, and unique shots that quite honestly she did not find in other photographers that our friends recommended. What sold me on her was that, when we met for the first time in her studio, I was thoroughly impressed with her work. Her material looked professional; she spoke technically when I asked technical questions, artistically when I asked artistic questions; and basically set me at ease about the whole process. All the standard moments were captured required for a wedding photographer, but that is not what makes them stand out. Rather it was the photos of both the little, poignant moments, as well as the grandiose, larger-than-life shots that repeatedly make us --and those whom we show our photos to-- go "wow." My wife has commented many times that the day of the wedding Sara was not only the photographer but also a friend."  -  Patrick, Groom

"I can't recommend Sara Zarrella any more highly."

Not only did she capture our gorgeous destination wedding images, she is my go-to now for family photography. As a photographer myself, I didn't realize it would be so hard to capture images of my own child, but man, is it hard and nearly impossible to get the kind of images I want. So finding someone who will take the images I envision is tricky, but Sara does it! Finding a photographer to trust with capturing your precious family memories or your branding image can be scary, but I assure anyone looking, Sara will put you at ease and give you the result you'll love.
Her professionalism is top notch yet she is still so warm, friendly and approachable.
You can't go wrong with Sara Zarrella Photography. " Sarah, Photographer & Mom
