Sara was WONDERFUL with our family last night. Our 3 boys loved being photographed by her and have talked about the pictures since she took them. We can't wait to book with her again next year. You definitely will not be disappointed. We cant thank her enough for capturing our family so perfectly! -Samantha

My bridesmaids surprised me with a photoshoot in Panama City Beach during my bachelorette party. I was in shock and felt unprepared, but was excited to have the photos done. Sara made me feel gorgeous and comfortable regardless of me feeling unready! She was so sweet and gave great direction, I even got in the water to do some more sexy photos! She was amazing, I recommend her to anyone wanting to have a fun, laid back and professional photographer! -Lexy

We had a family beach session in Rosemary Beach. We surprised my parents with a vacation photoshoot! We worked with Sara and she could not have been more wonderful! Her energy was so great. She was working with 6 adults and 4 kids under 4 & knew exactly how to capture what truly has been the best photos we have yet to take as a family. Cannot recommend her & Local Lens enough! -Kelly

We had a family shoot in Watercolor Beach. Sara was our photographer, and she was great. It was raining a lot when we first arrived in Florida. She was flexible and worked with us to get a new time the week we were there to get our photos taken. She worked well with the kids we had and was very patient. We enjoyed working with her. Wish she could make the rain go away! LOL -Kayla

While on vacation at such a beautiful beach off 30a we decided it would be a great opportunity to get family photos. Sarah recommended Grayton Beach State Park and it was amazing! Sarah is super friendly and great with kiddos! Our shoot felt very natural and went by quickly. We have so many beautiful images to choose from! I definitely recommend local lens and Sarah. -Audrey

It went great ! Sarah met us. We went to the beach at sunset. She positioned us and took many photos of our family. It was very easy. We loved her smile and her professionalism. She was terrific! We are ordering a number of photos. Local Lens is a super idea. I would use it again and ask for Sarah if we are in Rosemary Beach again! -Besty

My husband booked a photographer 3 months before our trip but she unfortunately fell sick the day before our shoot. On a whim I decided to request a shoot for the next day on Local Lens and found Sara. She was able to fit us in and did a wonderful job keeping my son relaxed and comfortable throughout the shoot. We wanted candid shots and she gave us plenty of options to choose from. Sara was truly a joy to work with! -Megan

Mother's Day gift We gifted this to my mom for Mother's Day since all of the kids and grandkids would be in one area on vacation. It went extremely well. Sara did an incredible job and made the whole experience fun and engaging. We had several kids and she did a great job making it fun for them while also getting amazing pictures. I would use her again in a heartbeat. -Mary

To capture our daughter's birthday. Our photographer Sara was amazing! She was flexible with our timing due to bad weather and was easy to communicate with. I made a Pinterest board of photos I liked and she got the style just right. We loved how our photos turned out! Our shoot was on Rosemary Beach -Trisha

I knew from the moment I met Miranda that I would propose to her someday. We met in Denver, CO on her first assignment as a travel nurse and really the rest is history. Sara helped me make my vision a reality with a surprise proposal in Miranda's favorite place, Rosemary Beach. Everything couldn't have worked out better. We were able to get her to dress up nice and in the middle of the Rosemary green space. I read her a poem while Sara snuck in and started taking the most amazing pictures we could have ever hoped for. She captured the moment perfectly. Proposal. It went so well! Better than I could have imagined. -Tony

Sara was amazing to work with. She was so great with my kids and the pictures far exceeded my expectations. It was a great mix of candid and posed pictures and it was so hard to narrow them down! I would definitely refer Local Lens and Sara to my friends and family. -Sarah

We had a great experience with Sara! Even though she lives 1.5 hrs away from our venue in Destin, she was on time and was communicating with me prior to the day of the shoot. She also made everyone comfortable during the shoot! She also made my 2-year-old daughter enjoy the pictorial. She was smiling at every photo. -Danica
