genuine moments

Our specialty is all things love: engagements, elopements, weddings, anniversaries, and everything after. We're passionate about building relationships, learning your story, and telling it artfully through photos. We preserve genuine moments and allow our creativity to turn raw emotions into art you'll cherish and display for years to come. As we plan our wedding, we completely understand and appreciate the energy and love you've poured into your best day ever. You can rest assured, knowing we will encapsulate every little detail. After your day has come and gone, you'll be left with photos that tell the story and bring back the emotions of the day, and with us as your friends for life, excited to stay connected and capture every chapter to come. We're so honored to be a part of your story.

We're Sarah and Jake

passionate story tellers speaking through photos

Sarah was such a dream to work with! When I first reached out to her, she responded within 24 hours and continued to be super responsive after that. Her editing style is what had drawn my eye to her work and I wasn’t the slightest bit disappointed with our engagement pictures or wedding pictures. Our pictures glowed with warmth and romance—which was exactly what I had wanted. Sarah was patient, kind, open-minded, and professional. I would recommend Sarah to anyone and everyone! I am so looking forward to having her capture more milestones in mine and my husband’s life!

I really can’t say enough about Sarah and Jake. I highly HIGHLY recommend Sarah Zakula Photography. She was so easy to work with, and really did a spectacular job capturing our wedding day. Our wedding album was provided to us WAY sooner than we expected and I couldn’t be happier with the editing and the amount of photos we got. I was literally crying going through them, it was like reliving the day all over again. 10/10 beautiful work.

Sarah is so incredible to start off with! My wife and I have had our engagement session, resave the date session, our wedding, and now our family photos and every single time Sarah has amazed us! Even just now when looking back at our wedding photos we realized Sarah and Jake did such a fantastic job of hiding the mic our videographer used during our ceremony. She is so great at such little details that truthfully we didn't even notice until now! Thank you so much for being awesome, can't wait for the next opportunity we can come up with to get another shoot!

I love Sarah! She's easy going and truly captures the real moments, not the "staged" pictures. She's communicative and responsive. Also, Jake was so fun to have on our wedding day. He adds a light heartedness that brings out the best of you and your spouse.

Sarah and Jake were amazing to work with from day one. Sarah's communication is very quick. She has great packages for everyone no matter what you are looking for. Her ideas are endless, and she even let us try some ideas we had for pictures. We will definitely be using Sarah's incredible skills for future pictures. I recommend her for any of your photography needs. The pictures we got back from both our engagement pictures and wedding pictures had us speechless!
