Hi, I'm Sarah, owner of the Hertfordshire-based Wedding photography business Purple Kite Photography. Photographing your wedding is about preserving a fleeting moment and creating precious memories which will last forever. I aim to document every detail of your day, from the big moments to the intimate interactions in between, producing relaxed, fun photos that capture the atmosphere of the day.
It is such an exciting time, planning this special day which celebrates your love for each other and is the start of a whole new chapter together, but I get that planning a wedding can feel very overwhelming. Please remember, your wedding photos are one of the few wedding day purchases which last a lifetime and more. You should feel confident that your photographer will capture all of the key moments and people in a style that suits you, and will spend time editing them to a high standard afterwards, creating something that you will treasure forever.
How I work
Purple Kite Photography is built on a genuine passion for telling visual stories. Your wedding day is all about you so I work around your plans, capturing moments as they happen, offering a relaxed and natural style, and capturing authentic emotions whilst blending into the background. And I won't be taking you away from your guests for hours to take endless gimmicky posed shots.
I always meet the couple in advance of the wedding day if possible. Remember, your photographer will be shadowing you throughout the day, often from early in the morning whilst getting ready, so it's vital that you get on well! It's also helpful to chat about what you'd like from your photographer on the day and to create a list of essential photos and important people in advance of the day to ensure that all of those things will be captured, meaning you won't need to worry about it on the day.
On the day, I start when you want me to, and have a range of packages which begin at 4 hours and go right through to the first dance and beyond! To get a full picture of the services I offer, I'd love to meet for a coffee and begin designing a bespoke package that fits perfectly with your day.

Before we made contact we looked on the Purple Kite photography website which has lots of examples of Sarah’s work and plenty of information regarding packages available.
From initial contact Sarah was brilliant in every way. Constant communication and quick to reply to any questions we had. We feel as though Sarah went above and beyond. We initially met to discuss wants, needs and expectations and straight away we knew Purple Kite Photography ticked all of the boxes. Sarah is very professional, kind and easy to get on with and we loved the fact that she instantly formed a bond with our 18 month old. After our initial meet up and we exchanged contracts Sarah stayed in constant contact, she even carried out a recce of the wedding venue before the wedding so she knew the best locations to capture our special day.
On the Wedding day Sarah was just as brilliant as she had been leading up to it and she even sent us some sneak peaks of what she had captured as soon as she got home.
In just over a week, Sarah sent us a link to view the finished article and words cannot describe how blown away we are. The photographs are amazing! Captured in such a way it felt like we was reliving it.
We would strongly recommend Purple Kite Photography, Sarah made our special day that little bit more special.
Sarah, thank you so much, I feel like this review doesn’t even do you justice, you are amazing!
Love Dean & Harriet. Mr & Mrs Hatch!
Professional, talented, wonderful photographer!
I don't know how she does it but you just don't know she's there snapping away, she makes it seem so effortless! She knows how to put you at ease, exactly where you all need to be and doesn't fanny about!
Sarah was super quick at getting our photos to us and WOW they are amazing! They are natural, effortless and captured the absolute joy we felt on the day, we couldn't have asked for more.
Sarah is without doubt a gifted and talented photographer and a wonderful, kind, friendly woman.
I cannot recommend Sarah enough .
Our wedding on the first hottest day in June 2023
Sarah is a Diamond.
Sarah played a vital role on our special day - and she delivered! We are so grateful to have had a photographer whose natural flare and attention to detail have produced stunning photographs to pass on to future generations. Sarah's style is non-interventionalist and prefers to be in the background to allow your day to flow more naturally. She is gifted at finding the beauty in her surroundings, which is reflected in her still life shots. Overall, we are so pleased with the results that we struggle to condense our photographs into our album. We want to fit them all in!
Sarah, as a person, glows! She has a warmth to her which puts you at ease. She likes to get to know you, to make the experience personable. Her communication has been fantastic from start to finish; Sarah is in no rush to ensure your voice is heard. She will extend this by tailoring to your requests. We are glad to have entrusted her, as she will not disappoint!
Perfect photographer for the perfect day!

Beautiful wedding photos
A professional, flexible and experienced photographer.
We used Sarah for our wedding and from the pre-start meeting, throughout the day of the wedding and the aftercare, she has been nothing but professional, reliable and approachable. She was even able to organise everyone so that we could get the shots that we wanted . . . no easy feat with children running around and it being a hectic day. Thank you
