1. So how do I book you?!
EASY! Let's start by filling out the Contact Form here. Then, once we get a date and location worked out, all you have to do is read over the Booking Proposal/Contract, sign it (and I counter-sign), submit your deposit and BAM - booked!
2. How would you describe your photography style?
My style is very organic and true to the moment. I am not really into traditional posing and I like to make your shoot more like an adventure, capture the true essence and honest moments of your wedding day, and stay true to authenticity of the experience. The images I produce provide emotion and create a subtle and moody feel with a very woodsy look.
3. I notice you identify yourself as an Intimate Wedding and Elopement photographer, will you still photograph my rather large wedding?!
Of course! I love weddings of all shapes and sizes - I can't wait to hear all about it!
4. What's the difference between a Wedding and an Elopement?
For the purposes of my packages, a Wedding typically consists of Getting Ready, First Look, Ceremony, Portraits, and Reception. Elopements usually include Getting Ready, Ceremony, and Portraits and have fewer than 50 guests present, if any.
7. Can I have multiple outfits during our portrait session?
I usually suggest just doing one outfit for the sake of time, or you can have a second outfit that's easily changed into even if we're in the middle of a dirt trail! I recommend something that's nice but casual too, these end up photographing really nicely because you're the most comfortable and you're more yourself! I also share outfit ideas with you during the process, so I'd be happy to give you some tips!
8. What types of locations do you suggest for shoots?
My favorite types of locations are very organic, nature-y, and have lots of open space for pretty light! I particularly love shooting at the desert or on mountaintops. I have a giant list of location ideas that I'll send to you, depending on whether you want to stay within my complimentary travel range or if you would like to adventure a bit further (the farther the drive and the farther from civilization, usually the more epic the spot)! If you want to something a little different, I've also recommend In-Home Lifestyle Sessions to my clients too, I'd be happy to tell you all about that!
9. How will I receive my images?
Oh, it's awesome. You will receive your high-resolution digital images on your very own Personalized Online Gallery where you and your loved ones can download them all with one click, tag favorites, share the gallery, etc. Yay!
10. Do you offer Print Release?
Of course! This means that you have the rights to print the images that you receive to your heart's content. Yay again! Just keep in mind you may not sell or publish (like, to bridal magazines, blogs, etc.) the images without written consent from Sarah Linda Photography.
11. How many photos should I expect to receive?
For Weddings, you can typically expect around 75 images per hour of wedding coverage (ex: 8 hour coverage means you can expect somewhere around 500-700 edited photos to be delivered), and similarly for Portrait Sessions, which are typically one hour long, you can expect around 75 images!
12. Can you help us out with our wedding timeline?
Absolutely! I always assist my couples with creating and finalizing their wedding timeline (or if you already have one, I can help you perfect it)! I will especially make sure to help you work around the lighting for the day, make sure we have plenty of time for portraits, and so on.
13. Do you offer Mentor Sessions?!
I do, I do! Fill out my Mentor Inquiry Form to inquire about my Mentoring Experience packages - I'd love to help you grow as a photographer!

Reviews / Love Notes
"Choosing Sarah to be our wedding photographer was probably the best decision we made next to getting married. Her and Sammy really knew how to get all the best shots and they were so flexible during such a hectic day. She goes above and beyond and I truly am so thankful for all that she did for us. Just amazing in every sense of the word. Book her and let all the photo stress wash away because she is truly a professional and has an amazing eye for great shots !"
"Sarah and her assistant did an unbelievable job shooting our wedding. We weren't sure we wanted to have a photographer but we're talked into it, and it was absolutely the best money we spent. The photos received are some of the most beautiful portraits I have ever seen and many shots bridge the gap into fine art photography. Better yet, they are just cool people. We had 3 separate shoots with Sarah, over which she made us feel perfectly comfortable and free to be ourselves. We have since recommended her to many and will continue to ."
"Anniversary Shoot of my Dreams: Sarah was such a pleasure to work with. I originally picked her out of 5 other vendors to do an anniversary photo shoot. Her use of light and how natural her photos are made me so excited to work with her. On the day of, she was on time and made us feel at ease while shooting. Her sneak peek photos on Instagram make me even more excited to see the final product. Payments and contracts are pretty straight forward and were super easy."
"A few raindrops couldn't stop us from amazing pictures: Scheduled our maternity session at Yorba Regional Park. When we arrived for our session it started pouring rain. I was so bummed, but Sarah was willing to reschedule and try again the next day even though she had a full day already lined up. The session turned out great, despite a few raindrops and pictures (so far) look amazing! Haven't seen the full gallery yet, but so excited to have these photos to remember this special time."
"Sarah was an amazing photographer. She took care of our engagement photoshoot and the result was awesome! We went to the beach for an afternoon and took our time to take the pictures. We did several locations and several outfits as well. We had the final pictures not a long time after the photoshoot which is great. I do really recommend her for a wedding or engagement photoshoot!"
"Sarah is amazing! Her photography is breathtaking. She is so talented. Thank you Sarah for our most amazing engagement photos! I love seeing your sneak peeks on Instagram. :)"
"Sarah was the most awesome photographer I could ask for! My pictures came out even more beautiful than I expected. They appear so natural, and during the actual shoot she worked hard to achieve that organic aesthetic. Personally I loved that she used minimal flash because it really adds to the overall natural and kind of romantic effect."
"We had the best experience! She was energetic, professional, and fabulous. We are beyond pleased with her work and will find another experience to book her for again soon!"
