I do! I have a partner in crime-- my amazing mom. She's been working with me for over four years now. It's wonderful to have someone I can depend on. I also have other amazing photographers I use for second shooters in the event that an emergency happens to Nancy or myself. In the rare event something happens to me, Nancy shoots weddings solely as a first shooter as well so she will take good care of you and one of our backup second shooters will be thrilled to have a chance to capture your love story. :)
She also shoots as lead if I have your date booked but
you'd still love to work with my style and editing!
I always base hours of coverage on number of locations for the day. If you are having only two locations (prep/ceremony/reception all take place within that) I recommend my 8 hour package. If you have multiple locations (Hotel for prep, church for ceremony, venue for reception) I recommend my 10 hour package. If you are having an intimate wedding with a very small reception (Dessert only) or everything at only one location,I recommend 7 hours of coverage. All elopements start with 4 hours of coverage.
I am located in Kansas but travel for half of my weddings. I base my travel fees off of time, airfare & car rental (if necessary), hotel stay and food.
There are no additional travel fees for the state of Kansas, KCMO & OK City.
I travel frequently to:
California, Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma & Florida.
I'm always up for an adventure. :)
Wedding Collections start around $3000 for 8 hours of coverage with two photographers and an engagement session.
I highly encourage taking advantage of your complimentary engagement session. The amazing thing about an engagement session is that you get a chance to become relaxed in front of the camera. This is great for couples who have never had a photoshoot together before. Sometimes, it can be a little intimidating to look into each other's eyes or whisper silly things in one another's ears but by the end of the engagement session, you'll feel comfortable and ready to take on your wedding day full force. Plus, it gives me an opportunity to learn your chemistry with each other. Things that you do with each other that you may not even realize. He may like to rub your shoulders or always wrap his arm around your waist when you cross the street. I look for these to incorporate into your wedding photos so that when you look back at them, you see true emotion and love instead of all of the typical "Pinteresty" images.
My style is romantic, elegant and full of warm, natural light. I love timeless, classic photos with a touch of modern day, artistic flare. My brides tend to look through magazines like The Knot and Martha Stewart Weddings and envision that their wedding could be on the pages of them.
I love making an image look exactly how the actual moment looked. I use flash to achieve a more natural skin tone look in darker areas but will always strive for a natural look.
The Sara Rieth Bride loves to look through magazines for inspiration. She wants a dream wedding and has connections and talent to make it come true. She tends to be more classic with just a touch of modern twist. She laughs easily, loves her family and loves life. She can't wait to start a family of her own. She grew up watching Disney movies and always dreamed of finding her own prince charming. She believes in love at first sight and happily-ever-afters. She loves animals. Coffee and music bring joy to her soul. She appreciates the beauty in this world. Fresh flowers and sparkles are her fave.
She's the best friend everyone can count on.
The vast majority of my weddings take place either outdoors (such as gardens, countryside, vineyards) or in light and bright spaces such as ballrooms, villas, private estates, elegant barns and museums. About 1/2 of the ceremonies I shoot are in a church followed by a reception at an outdoor location or ballroom.
