Whitney Nicholes Married couple on 04 Mar 2023
Going with Elizabeth Lanier was one of the earliest decisions we made while planning our wedding. It was also one of the easiest decisions to make. We knew we wanted a photographer who could come up with a plan and take the reins when there were a lot of photos to take and guests to navigate. We were confident they could do this and not only did they meet our expectations but we have been absolutely floored by the photos they took.

They managed to capture the joy on our faces that we felt that day and looking through the photos has put us back in the moment. It also helps that they’re an incredible team and they felt like part of our crew by the end of the day. They made the day easy and fun and handled it like pros!
Rachel Alford Married couple on 11 Mar 2023
We absolutely love and treasure all the photos Sarah captured from our wedding day! Despite a looming hurricane and a changing timeline, Sarah confidently and effortlessly captured our special day. We also really enjoyed getting to know her in all the in between moments - the engagement session, driving to the rehearsal dinner, chatting at the reception, etc. She even captured some fun photos of us using our polariod camera! Thank you so much, Sarah and team!
Louisa Costa Married couple on 08 Apr 2023
I can barely put into words how amazing Sarah and her husband were throughout our entire wedding weekend. They made Zander and me, and our entire family, feel very at ease with the whole picture-taking process. Not only did they bring the best out in everyone, but they also seamlessly integrated into the wedding weekend activities. Numerous guests came up to me to say how wonderful Sarah and her husband were at capturing the moments without interrupting the happenings. And you can see it in the photos! They are so authentic and beautiful; we are thrilled with how they turned out. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Elizabeth Lanier team, and I hope to use them again in the future!
Zander Masucci Married couple on 13 May 2023
Sarah was incredible throughout the entire process. From the first zoom call through the end of the wedding weekend, the journey was well organized and carefully thought through. She captured beautiful moments of our special days, photos we will cherish forever! Thank you again, Sarah. Highly recommend!
Christiana Masucci Married couple on 21 Oct 2023
Sarah Elizabeth is one of the most talented and professional photographers we have worked with.  Our son Alexander was married a year ago June and I still have goosebumps looking at their pictures.  We are so blessed to have Louisa join our family.
Mia Cattaneo Married couple on 16 Mar 2024
If you are a bride (or groom) looking for a photographer for your wedding day - look no further. Sarah and her husband Will were absolutely wonderful throughout our wedding weekend. We put our full trust in them and they blew us away. Something I loved about working with them was I never felt their presence (in the best way). They truly let the day be what it was meant to be and didn’t interfere with that. I think the quote on her website describes her perfectly “for those who want to remember how the day felt”. Not only are they amazing photographers, but they are also incredible people who we truly enjoyed spending time with on the biggest day of our lives!
Claire Naparalla Married couple on 20 Apr 2024
I wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth Lanier to anyone looking for a photographer who will go above and beyond to capture their dream wedding. Specifically, Sarah's knowledge of destination photography was invaluable. We are incredibly grateful to Sarah for her professionalism, talent, and genuine care for our special day. She offered a pre-wedding session at the venue, putting us at ease and allowing her to understand the lighting and environment. She communicated seamlessly with our (remote) wedding planner, ensuring every detail was covered, and took the initiative to collaborate with the day-of coordinator, guaranteeing a smooth experience. It's these small gestures that truly set her apart. Elizabeth Lanier doesn't just capture photos; they tell stories. Our wedding photographs are more than just beautiful images, they're vibrant snapshots of our emotions, joy, and love. Thank you, Elizabeth Lanier!
