My wife and I are extremely happy we booked Sarah for our wedding last summer. She captured everything with great detail and creativity, never missing a moment. She is fun to work with and really tells the story of your day without making you do goofy and fake poses. We were amazed at how great some of the shots turned out! Well worth the money and highly recommended to anyone.

My new wife and I would recommend Sarah to anyone needing a wedding photographer. She did an amazing job capturing some really beautiful moments at our wedding, both planned and candid. Sarah and an assistant met up with us and our relatively large wedding party (20 people) a few hours before our ceremony and traveled with us around downtown Chicago taking some incredible couple and group shots at the Chicago Cultural Center and Art Institute gardens. And the photos she took at our ceremony and reception will be cherished for the rest of our lives. We couldn't be happier with the creativity of her shots and the professionalism of her work.

Sarah was wonderful to work with. Given all the uncertainty in the world at the moment, we wanted a photographer who offered flexibility as things are so fluid these days. She is very understanding and fair to both parties. Lucky for us, our intimate wedding in October still happened without a stitch! Sarah was able to capture our excitement and emotion while providing a variety of landscapes to choose from. Sarah was very responsive and professional throughout the entire process. Sarah's photo journalistic eye is one of a kind! We are over the moon with the final product. Highly recommend Sarah Nader as your wedding photographer!

Sarah Nader took BEAUTIFUL photos of me and my boyfriend in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Knowing it would be epic, it was Sarah’s idea to shoot there. We trusted her on the location and it did not disappoint! She was so prepared with lots of ideas for shots, locations and overall theme. It took the stress off of us - so we got to relax, enjoy the moment and have fun being ourselves with her and her camera. Sarah’s many years of experience is reflected in her talent, amazing photos, confidence and relaxed demeanor.

Sarah did an excellent job! She made us feel at ease and we both had so much fun. Sarah is creative and captured some beautiful photos. I love that we received color and black and white photo edits - we are having such a hard time choosing which we like best! We are so happy with the entire experience and would recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a great photographer - we would give her 10 stars if we could!

Sarah was so wonderful to work with, from helping us pick out the location of our wedding photos in Lincoln Park, Chicago, and for the prep meetings prior to make sure she captured all the moments we wanted during our special day. Day of the Wedding, she was ontime, kept us and our entire family on schedule. She was direct with us to help us get the best photos, which helped us capture more moments throughout Lincoln Park and our reception venue. She never wasted a moment to snap photos of our guests and our venue. Very experienced, knows what she is doing and made it effortless after to view photos, family is able to order right from her website directly, and sends you a preview within 48 hours, and for us, it was same day!
Max Whitmeyer on 07 May 2022
We chose Sarah for our engagement photo shoot and could not be happier with the results. Sarah was easy to work with and incredibly professional throughout. She was less familiar with the neighborhood we wanted to shoot in so she scouted it out beforehand and planned a route for us that allowed us to take a variety of photos in a time efficient manner. Photos were delivered in a timely manner and are very high quality.
Rebecca Thompson on 09 Jul 2022
Sarah was a delight to work with from start to finish. Her prices are reasonable and she is refreshingly down to earth relative to other big photography groups that make you fill out forms to get quotes and jump through other such hoops. She is up front about her style and her rates, and extremely quick to respond to communication.

We hired Sarah in 2022 for our engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner, and wedding - she did a great job at each one. She captures beautiful portraits and staged photos, but her real specialty (as you can see from her website) is finding wonderful candid shots of the couple and their guests throughout the wedding weekend. She is great with lighting and her photos always have an interesting composition. We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos!

OH and her turnaround time is amazing. She had a sneak peek of our wedding photos within a few days, and the full set available within a week or so.
Daniel Hart on 19 Nov 2022
Sarah did an amazing job as our photographer. She has an eye for location and was able to capture some amazing shots. We appreciate her professionalism and flexibility while working with us. She is very quick to respond which is a huge plus for us.
Emma Huntley on 12 Nov 2022
We worked with Sarah for our wedding and for our pregnancy photos, and she was an absolute joy to work with. Professional, friendly, and so talented. We didn’t want to miss much of our wedding and gave Sarah a very tight window to get our portrait photos done, and she absolutely killed it. We are so thrilled with our photos, and definitely recommend her!
