Originally I was not scheduled to have Sarani as my photographer, but another photographer on her team. She sent me his portfolio and I was not blown away by his work as I was Sarani's. From an artist's stand point, I'm a painter, her photos have an excellent command of color and light. She uses a combination of flash and natural light that creates an ethereal and fantasy like effect in her photos. I loved her work and wanted that same feeling in my wedding photos. Since I only had booked for 3 1/2 hours she usually doesn't do the small packages. I wrote to her, and she found a way to make it happen. Sarani is so sweet. She actually showed up early to squeeze in a few extra pictures for us. She studied in the US, so her English is top notch... and she would comment as she was taking photos "beautiful, I love this light on your face"... it helps make you feel less awkward to have a camera constantly snapping pictures of you. She made the most of the time we had. She quickly did up pictures of things that weren't being used while we got me into my undergarments, then helped to position us in the right way to get the best photos of me getting into my dress. She did an excellent job coaching me on what would look good. She did an excellent job getting around during the ceremony. I don't remember seeing her once, but when I look at my friend's photos she was all over the place taking photos, I just must have been very focused on looking at my husband. Another nice thing about her being an approved photographer at El Dorado Royale is that she knows where to go to get great pictures, she knows the place well. I've only seen a handful of my photos so far, but what I have seen blow me away. I'm addicted to looking at my photos, they are so beautiful. Of all the things I spent money on, my photography was the best. I should have spent more to have more time with her. If you need proof of her excellent skill check out her blog, she updates it frequently and there are amazing photos on it. While waiting for my edits to be done I've been living vicariously through the photos of others she posts on there. Check it out and you'll see what I mean about her style. All in all I couldn't think of anything negative to say about Sarani and her services, she was fantastic.
