Premiere wedding photography in Brookville, pa

The friendships and experiences that I've created with my SH Couples lasts far beyond the wedding day and I believe that’s how it should be! I'm excited for you to keep scrolling to learn more about how being a SH Bride isn’t your typical photography experience; it’s so much more!

You’ve made it to the right place!! I believe every single bride deserves to go wild over not only her wedding photos but the entire photographic process! Beautiful, genuine images stem from an amazing experience and that’s exactly what I create for my sweet SH Brides! If you love joyful, timeless wedding photos, I have a treat for you!

After becoming a professional photographer and capturing over 15 weddings annually , you would think that I would grow weary of weddings, right?! The reality is, I have seen and photographed it all and the more that I shoot, the more that I fall in love with this job! The joy, the excitement, the feminine details, the tears, the dances with daddy, the portraits that take your breath away.... I love it all. 

You're Engaged!?  You are in the right place! Make yourself at home!

The Portfolio

Before every wedding day begins, I pray for my couple, their families and for the ability to capture the couple’s celebration with excellence and creativity! Besides my own sweet family,  photographing weddings is truly one of the most rewarding parts of my life!

We treat you like family.

what makes The Sara Haines Photography Experience Different

I don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! I know that SH Brides are unique and I work VERY hard to find them! I serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants joyful, genuine portraits of herself & her new groom, then she needs more than just pretty pictures. She needs an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with me is determining if I am the perfect fit for you! After getting to know you online, we’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process! ...

Step One:  Let's be friends

The Process

Yay!! You were made to be a SH Couple! Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality!!! We’ll send you a custom online booking proposal where you can review your package and pay your deposit to make everything officially official! Now that you’re an official SH Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started!! ....

Step Two: 
Save the date

The Process

Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. And don’t worry... I'll teach you EVERYTHING! I thrive at helping my couples get comfortable and feel like themselves. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will be pros. GUARANTEED. I’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after 20 minutes have gone by! That’s all the time we need to get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together! After your engagement session you’ll be featured on the SH Blog and will also be sent your online gallery of images to download and share however you wish.

Step Three:  Engagement

The Process

Once we’re 8 weeks out from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding! I love creating custom timelines for my couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! You know all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine??? I work with my SH Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their OWN! 

Step Four: Timeline Talk

The Process

It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! I believe in telling the full story of my couples' wedding days and so I never shoot less than 8 hours. This day is going to be a blur to you and so I make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is my portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to meet my couple’s families and best friends!! After the wedding day, you’ll be featured on the SH Blog the following TUESDAY! I like to share your weddings while everyone is still on cloud nine from the big day instead of keeping my couples waiting!

Step 5:  Your Wedding Day

The process

After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of them! We encourage our SH Couples to sit down with a glass of wine the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your album design (if you ordered an album!) and you can begin the customization process!

Step 6:  Gallery + Album Design

I can honesty say that photography is truly one of the most rewarding parts of my life! The friendships and experiences that I've created with my SH Wedding Couples and families lasts far beyond the session and I believe that’s how it should be! I'm excited for you to keep scrolling to learn more about how being a part of Sara Haines Photography isn’t your typical photography experience; it’s so much more!
