About Sarah:

I love road trips, roadside attractions and exploring the world around me through my camera lens.  I enjoy drinking very hoppy beers in the company of good friends. I’m a cat lover, especially my Siamese cat, Juniper! A tea lover, matcha green tea and unsweetened black tea, specifically. I absolutely LOVE tacos. And, I’m married to my best friend, Tim! 🙂

About SHP:

My studio is located in Armory Square, in Syracuse, but I shoot all over.  I have degrees in both photography and graphic design. I’ve been shooting weddings for a decade and still get butterflies before each one!

What Our Clients Say

  • Sarah took the most amazing photos. There is one of our groomsmen that was so cool its being shared by everyone we know. She makes you feel comfortable from the start. Beginning with the consultation through the engagement photos, through the wedding itself she is just awesome! Her second shooter Jenn is equally awesome. They were both worth every penny. I would hire them again in an instant.

  • Sarah met with us to discuss what we wanted and to learn about our wedding location and all the details well in advance of the date. She kept in touch and follow-up the week before the wedding. Everything was perfect. She and her assistant arrived as scheduled, captured all the informal moments that we wanted, and focused on making sure she captured impromptu shots of all our guests. Just what we wanted. As promised we received a flash drive with all our pictures and selected the ones we wanted printed. We love the creative shots she took of the decor, our rings, shoes, ties, flowers, etc…….not to mention there were at least two shots of us together that by themselves were worth the total fee!……and she sent us a nice gift wrapped box with several wallet sized of one of our favorite pictures….a great surprise.

  • Having our wedding photographed by Sarah and her assistant was great! It was wonderful to have two photographers around that day catching everything they could. Great things about Sarah Heppell Photography: Fast responses to emails Friendly Caring and Flexible Easy to be around Professional 2 Shooters and so much more! Something that really impressed me was the when I met up with Sarah to pick up our flash drive of pictures, I didn’t get just a standard flash drive from Staples! I got this beautiful wooden flash drive that said “The Best Day Ever” on the front of it. Not only that but it was wrapped up in this beautiful box inside a cute bag. She also gave me a few cute photos of us that I was not expecting. This was such a nice little touch that she had. I loved it! If you want a great experience and photos, then choose Sarah Heppell Photography!

  • I am so happy we chose Sarah Heppell as our photographer. I was originally going with a friend of a friend… who, to make a long story short, turned out to be an absolute nightmare! Sarah was so accommodating and patient with everything, my crazy work schedule and all of my questions. After having our engagement session and seeing how amazing she made us look and feel, we knew we had nothing to worry about. What a relief! On the day of our wedding Sarah and her second shooter, Jenn, were amazing! As with all weddings there was an issue starting the ceremony on time which sort of rushed everything after it. But Sarah and Jenn moved quickly and really rolled with the punches. I have to admit that I was worried that we didn’t get enough of the traditional pictures but as it turned out we actually did! Between the two of them multitasking I am so proud of how great our wedding photos came out! It takes a true professional and person with experience and talent to calmly handle a situation like that. She finished editing our photos in such a quick amount of time. I have been so pleased with all of her services. I will recommend her to ANYONE. She is talented, affordable, and confident. Her photos speak for themselves. Thank you Sarah Heppell!!! <3

  • Choosing a photographer was easy for us, since Sarah and her second shooter, Jenn, were the photographers at my brother’s wedding. Judging by their photos, I knew we could not go wrong! Working with them was great from the first meeting. Unfortunately we did not have time for an engagement photo session, but through correspondence, several meetings, and her questionnaire we were very comfortable with each other on the wedding day. I was surprised at how quickly Sarah was able to edit our photos, and there are so many great shots. They captured all the details that were important to us. As far as cost goes, her prices are more than reasonable… I highly recommend Sarah Heppell Photography!
