Danielle & Albee - 12/02/17
"Sabin and Melissa were not vendors but partners in capturing our day. From first contact to final execution, our relationship grew to true friendship and on the day that counted most, they were incredible. The results speak for themselves but it was the details, the things they remembered we asked for, their seamless integration into what could have been a chaotic day. Steady comfort, gentle direction and an endless soundboard for ideas, their guidance put our minds at ease and made our wishes come to life. We could not be more grateful for how our photos came out and more importantly, the lasting bond we have created as friends."
Carrie & George - 10/28/17
"Sabin and Melissa are an absolute pleasure to work with. They have a very personal touch - taking the time to get to know us, speedily responding to our questions, and guiding us through an unfamiliar process. The engagement shoot made us comfortable with their process, and gave them a feel for us. The day of the wedding they were unobtrusive, but managed to capture everything. We learned more about our wedding through the photos, where we saw moments and interactions that we had missed. The photos are spectacular, and we're going to treasure them for the rest of our lives."
Maddie & Michael - 09/30/17
"Where to begin with Sabin and Melissa. From the day we met this dynamic husband and wife duo, we knew it was meant to be. From our engagement shoot filled with endless laughs, all the way to receiving our wedding album we were nothing short of over-the-moon impressed with their energy, professionalism, and photo expertise. They made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera (not an easy feat) while capturing incredible moments we will cherish forever. A photo team is one of the most important choices you can make, and you cannot go wrong with this team."
Emily & Adam - 09/16/17
"Working with Sabin and Melissa was the best wedding decision we made. They made us feel as if we were their most important clients and that they cared as much about our wedding as we did. In the months leading up, they took the time to get to know us and our vision. Sabin and Melissa were helpful, fun to be around and great communicators. Our pictures are absolutely stunning and speak to the creative talent that is Sabin Gratz Photography."
Emily & Kevin - 09/02/17
"Working with Sabin and Melissa was the best decision we made. Our wedding photos are stunning and we couldn’t be happier. They are incredibly organized and worked closely with our wedding coordinator to make sure our day ran smoothly. It was a relief to know that we were being taken care of. I am very camera shy but was instantly comfortable working with them. Aside from the planned group photos we didn’t even know they were there, yet they still managed to capture every moment we could have asked for. They are both very personable and professional and we would hire them again in a heartbeat."
Kristen & Francis - 08/26/ 17
"When Kristen told me that we had a meeting with Sabin Gratz Photography, I didn’t understand why we needed to meet with a photographer; they just show up and take pictures right? I now know why meeting them was so important. One of my favorite parts of the day was just after our “first look” heading back to the ceremony site. Suddenly Sabin said to stop, because he saw something great behind us. I didn’t see it, but I got out with Kristen and walked up a small hill. It wasn’t until we got our final photos that I understood, and now that picture is on a large canvas decorating our dining room. Sabin and Melissa really know how to make your day feel special without being overbearing. The husband and wife team work perfectly together and know what to do without speaking a word. Looking back, we can’t imagine having anyone else capture our day. They understood us and most importantly, our personalities. Their eye for the perfect picture has made me appreciate the art of photography. We highly recommended them!"
Meg & Joe - 08/05/17
"Sabin and Melissa went above and beyond for our engagement and wedding photos. They're excellent at candid shots which is what we were looking for. We were also able to send them some ideas that we liked and they executed those ideas perfectly. Our entire family was in awe of how well they turned out. I would highly recommend them for any special occasion."
Brianna & Kevin - 07/01/17
"Sabin and Melissa are an incredible team. By the time the big day rolled around we felt like we had known them for years. We had multiple meetings with them leading up to the wedding that made the actual day run exceptionally smooth. They caputured amazing moments with family and friends during our rehearsal and wedding that we will cherish for years. Couldn’t ask for a better experience and looking forward to sharing more of our life’s memories together."
Julia & Greg - 06/24/17
"We heard from all of our local vendors how great of a wedding photographer Sabin is and he did not disappoint. He knew our venue inside and out. Sabin and his team had a well thought out game plan to cover every important moment and detail. We can't thank them enough for our beautiful photos. They are truly so special."
Emely & Geoff - 05/20/17
"Brides are picky; artists are even pickier – and I was both! But when my now-husband and I saw Sabin and Melissa’s portfolio, even MY jaw dropped. (No, really.) They work magic with those cameras! And as a bonus, they’re wonderful people, putting us completely at ease through the entire process. Our pictures are stunning, capturing not only the wedding itself, but our quirky personalities, too. Each photo is its own work of art, framing the best day of our lives in the best possible way. As a bride, and an artist, I (and my husband!) couldn’t be happier!"
Elizabeth & Trevor - 02/25/17
"Sabin and Melissa were absolutely wonderful to work with and to get to know through our wedding planning process. Not only are Sabin and Melissa incredible photographers, they are wonderful people. When most people plan a wedding they don’t fully appreciate that your photographer is your wingman: Sabin and Melissa are the type of people you want on your side. The photos are truly incredible—not just emotionally true in capturing the weekend but in such intriguing, rich and varied ways. Each time we look through the shots, we remember another detail we had forgotten in the blur of our wedding. We could not have asked for better photographers. Thank you! "
Danielle & Eric - 10/29/16
"We loved the experience Sabin and Melissa created for us on our wedding day. They were able to understand our style and personality in the short time when meeting them before the wedding and made us and the rest of our friends and family feel so comfortable and relaxed while shooting. They went above and beyond to capture the perfect shots, crawling in the grass in the cold weather and capturing the true beauty of the Vermont countryside. I am so grateful to have had them with us on our wedding day and provide us with beautiful memories to look back on for years to come."
Samantha & Jason - 10/23/17
"Sabin and Melissa are AMAZING. We booked them after our first meeting—even before we put a deposit on our venue. They went above and beyond what we ever could have imagined. The morning of our fall wedding brought a surprise: a blanket of snow had covered the ground! I was a bundle of nerves all morning because of this but when Sabin and Melissa arrived they assured me that I had nothing to worry about. We had snow on the ground, sun in the sky and fall foliage on the trees and they made it all work. The photos are breathtaking, and are something we will treasure forever. Knowing what went into them and getting to know Sabin and Melissa makes them all the more special. They not only captured many memories that day, but helped us make some pretty great ones we didn’t expect as well. If you want a trustworthy, wonderful, kind, amazing…I could go on and on...photographer, who truly has your best interests at heart, then choose Sabin Gratz Photography and you will not be disappointed."
Elizabeth & Jeremi - 10/01/16
"When looking into several different photography options, Sabin and Melissa's photos so clearly stood out from the others--aside from catching beautiful details and candids, the photos just had this extra ethereal, glowing quality. At our wedding, we hardly noticed them but they captured everything. For the wedding party and family photos, they were efficient, put everyone at ease, and made everybody laugh (which made for better photos). We received our photos in a very easy-to-use, beautiful online gallery. Booking Sabin and Melissa for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made!"
Elizabeth & Thomas - 09/24/16
"Wow! What can we say, they are incredible. They started a year in advance getting to know us and understanding the vision we had for our wedding. They are super friendly, funny, and kind. On the wedding day, they were amazing with all of the guests (and our dog). I knew while taking the photos that they were going to be amazing, and when we got our gallery, we were even more blown away. They captured our day PERFECTLY. Not only were the pictures the tone we wanted, but they were technically impeccable and something we will cherish forever. We would recommend Sabin and Melissa's services time and time again."
Kristine & Loren - 09/03/16
"Sabin and Melissa photographed our wedding in Sept of 2016. Not only were their pictures incredible, but they were a ton of fun to work with and a ton of fun to have at the wedding. We met with them several times leading up to the wedding and were coached through building a schedule for the day which eventually informed the final schedule we gave to the rest of our vendors. During an early site visit, Sabin also suggested a space on the venue's property, which turned out to be beautiful and the venue has used this spot for other ceremonies since. They're incredible professionals and we were so lucky to find them."
Brittany & Matt - 08/26/16
"The easiest part of our wedding vendor search was securing our photographer. I fell in love with Sabin and Melissa as a bridesmaid in a wedding years prior, and knew when my day came, this charming duo would be my very first call. And so they were. Their down-to-earth, easygoing, genuinely goofy manner made photoshoots so naturally candid. Together, they bring out laughter and ease that shines through in their photos - something that cannot be edited! This paired with their creative use of light, perspective and nature make their style so timelessly stunning. Having a couple was especially helpful coordinating the morning-of. As a bride, timing and logistics is one of the biggest concerns, so having Melissa with the ladies while Sabin bounced to the men, was most beneficial. Rushing through the morning is no way to start your wedding day, but they had the itinerary down to a science to enjoy every moment. Thank you, Sabin and Melissa, for your friendship and everlasting "Kodak moment" memories. Cheers to your future couples!"
Colby & Jason - 08/13/16
Not sure my words can do justice to the positive experience we had with Sabin and Melissa. We planned our wedding from afar and with that, comes the need to know and trust your "vendors." (Its hard using that word since they are more like friends now, honestly.) Sabin explained that couples spend more time with their photographers at weddings than anyone else so its crucial to feel comfortable with them. I cannot stress how true and vital this is. No one wants rain on their wedding but unfortunately, we got it. Sabin was SO communicative leading up to the day, talked through rain options and assured me that all would be ok. When you get to know people this well and they say everything will be okay no matter what, you trust them. They put me at ease and I did not doubt even 1% that the photos would be beautiful and ALL the logistics with the rain would work out. You are in the best hands ever. Just trust and let them do their work. They are true professionals!
Katie & Ben - 07/02/16
"Sabin and Melissa were so amazing to work with, and we have such incredibly gorgeous photos and fond memories of our wedding! They made us feel so comfortable, we knew we were in the best of hands. We are in love with our wedding photos and they remind us of what a truly magical day we had. We are forever grateful for Sabin and Melissa and how they captured our special day perfectly! "
Ann & Mike - 06/11/16
"I have a unique perspective as both a former wedding coordinator and a bride. When deciding what photographer to use for my wedding, I immediately thought of Sabin Gratz Photography. As a wedding coordinator, I found that he was always easy to work with, got the shots he needed for great memories, but did not impede the flow of the day. All of this held true when I was the bride. Sabin and Melissa were fun and easy to get along with, incredibly professional, and took absolutely stunning photographs. They made a dark rainy day on the farm look more magical than we could ever have imagined."
Melissa & Christopher - 05/21/16
"The best of the best! We are so grateful and privileged to have had Sabin and Melissa capture the best day of our lives! They went above and beyond; it is genuinely difficult to put into words. They were accessible for consultation, met with us in Vermont. They are down-to-earth, fun, relaxed and yet run a tight ship. Even our guests couldn't stop talking about how excellent they were to work with. Their work is flawless and speaks for itself but what a bonus that on our wedding day it felt as if they were friends we'd known forever! You guys are just plain rock stars! Could NOT be any happier with your beautiful work!"
