Sara is a mother to three tots, an artist, an entrepreneur, and a lover of clean sheets. Sara first picked up a camera at a very young age and has been doing photography in some capacity ever since. She went to college for photography as the world was evolving from analog film to digital, and so she learned how to shoot and develop film and gained a mastery in the art form of photography. Ever since she was a young teenager, she has worked diligently in areas that range from local ice cream shops, corn fields, pizzerias, to restaurants, until she could start up her own business. She has now been an entrepreneur for over 11 years, growing ever more popular in Athens and beyond as, Sara Wise Photography. Sara loves to bake (chocolate chip cookies are her specialty), listen to podcasts, educate herself on new business and photography approaches, and dabble in hair and makeup. Her God given talent is name recognition. She can remember a 20 member bridal party's names upon meeting them for the first time (and sometimes can recall the names for years). Oh, and dates. She will remember your wedding date for years... grooms, if you forget, give Sara a call! ;)
She loves photographing weddings with all of her heart. Growing up, Sara read volumes upon volumes of books, always leaning toward subjects that involved romance and family. Now, she gets to participate in real-life fairy tales (weddings), and capture each story's unique beauty and each couple's unique love. To every wedding, Sara brings organization, gentle command, direction, and confidence. She makes her brides and grooms look and feel like movie stars. She does all this while bringing an air of calmness and relaxation to the day.
Most of Sara's portrait clients, i.e. family, baby, and maternity, are past wedding clients/friends of hers. She adores seeing the same faces again when they decide to grow their family. She books portrait sessions aside from S + L Weddings through her company Sara Wise Photography. Below is her lovely instagram feed. Check it out and get to know her and her cute family.
