Dani & Adam | Wedding

My biggest fear was missing parts of the wedding and not having photos to capture what we missed. No it did not!!!! I am so very pleased with all our photographs and how well Sarah documented the whole afternoon/night!

I did not even know Sarah was there during the reception which was amazing! Rather than being in your face and trying to take a million and one portraits I was able to enjoy my reception and have genuine and authentic memories of the night.

She is wonderful! Amazing! Talented! Everything you want in a photographer! So easy going and just the best!

Kristy | Family

A few of the amazing photos we had done by the amazing Sarah @ Lucalia Photography.

 

So pleased with our first family photo shoot.

 

Highly recommend Sarah, she made it all so easy.

Lauren & Ant | Engagement

We were lucky enough to experience an engagement shoot with Sarah recently at Castlepoint.

 

Sarah made us feel incredibly relaxed and we loved sharing stories with her about our journey and her and her husbands.

 

Sarah's informal and unposed photography style was perfect for us and she put us at ease getting some beautiful snaps that I didn't think we were capable of pulling off!

 

Above all though, she seemed genuinely wrapt to be taking our photos and celebrating a small part of our journey with us. Thanks again, Lauren and Ant.

Julia & Richard | Wedding

We were very happy that we had our engagement and wedding photos done with Sarah of Lucalia Photography. One of our biggest fears about having a photographer take our wedding photos was that we would be uncomfortable and not enjoy our wedding day. We also were worried about the staged aspect of wedding photos which is the opposite of what we are like! Sarah really put our minds at ease. She has such a personal and thoughtful manner. She is also exceptionally onto it, responsive and trustworthy. From initial emails, to a phone call, to the engagement photos and finally the wedding photos Sarah was completely professional while also being very empathetic and understanding of what you as a person and a couple are going through.

 

We really loved how Sarah’s style is a documentary photography style. This means she will encourage you to do your thing with a bit of guidance occasionally. This makes for the most natural and beautiful photos, and the tenderest of moments being captured. We especially liked the engagement photos we took at our favourite camping spot and then later the wedding photos she took at our tiny garden / country style wedding.

 

In terms of value for money, we found Lucalia Photography to very good value for money.

 

Finally, we highly recommend Sarah of Lucalia Photography. She’s like that friend that you have at your wedding who just happens to take amazing photos! Thanks Sarah, we love your work!

Gemma | Family

Sarah was very professional, warm and engaging. It was a lovely experience having photos of our family taken whilst out for a family walk.

Sarah was so warm and made you feel at ease.

 

The children were able to engage with her as well, whilst being themselves.

 

The whole process was very professional and the quality of work was amazing. We love the photos and the diversity of them as well.

Sian & Kris | Engagement

We have Sarah booked for our wedding, but have just had an engagement shoot done with her and oh my goodness, she is amazing.

 

Sarah was more than happy (I’d even say excited) to go on an adventure to the beach we got engaged on. An hour and a half drive out of Martinborough on gravel rods, she wasn’t phased!

 

She was flexible with the weather and the time of day and just wanted what was best for us!

 

Once we were out there she was so easy to be photographed by, very relaxed, occasionally giving instructions but otherwise just left my fiancé and I to it. She followed us up and down the beach, got her feet wet, climbed sank banks with us, the whole shabang. On our way out we stopped at a decrepit old building that is holds many memories for me and happily followed us and photographed us, we wanted to cross the river and climb a tree, she followed.

 

Honestly, Sarah is an incredibly talented photographer and a fantastic human being. I can not recommend her enough and if there’s ever a reason I need a photographer in the future she will be my first point of call.

 

Thank you for providing us with such precious memories Sarah, we are so grateful!! Xx
