put simply: i’m all about creating

Your eye for detail, your love of ceremony, the personal touches you put your heart into—all these things and more will be reflected in the photos I take. Each of my services and packages give you the coverage, support, and attention you need each step of the way, from initial inquiry to the moment your gallery hits your inbox (and the inevitable dance party that’s sure to follow)!

Unforgettable experiences for awesome couples like you!

Put simply: I’m all about creating

If we’re a match made in photography heaven, I’ll send you my full packages and pricing guides with all the juicy details. Then, if you’re ready to move forward, simply sign the contract and pay a 25% retainer to secure your date (remainder due one month before wedding). Now it’s time to pop the champagne—you just joined the Sadie Mak Photo family!

Wedding planning is stressful enough. Go from ‘overwhelmed and unsure’ to ‘booked and confident’ in three easy steps:

Ready to reserve your date and get this party started?

So, what do you say—

Nope! If you inquire for a specific date and I let you know I am available, this does not secure your date. Once you sign your contract and pay your retainer, your date is officially secured with me! 

We filled out your contact form and you emailed us back! Does this mean our date is saved?

Regular sessions can take 2-4 weeks, sometimes sooner, depending on the time of year.

Weddings can take 2-4 months, sometimes sooner, depending on the time of year. I send sneak peaks within 72 hours so you aren't waiting the entire time! I know how hard it can be waiting on photos when you're so excited to get them back, so I do send a good amount back in your sneak peaks to tide you over until the final gallery is ready.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

This is the most common question I receive! Neutrals always photograph best. Once we narrow down a location, I can give you all the recommendations on what colors and outfits would photograph best. I will also send you an outfit guide to help coordinate your outfits based on location.

WHAT DO I WEAR TO MY SESSION?

YES! My starting rates listed on my pricing page are for local sessions, which I define as anywhere in Fresno, Kings, and Tulare county. Anything beyond that entails a travel fee, which I can better quote you once I have an idea of where you wanna go.

DO YOU CHARGE TRAVEL FEES?

I do not offer mini sessions year round. I will usually offer one or two days of mini sessions per year, typically one in the fall and one in the spring just depending on how busy I am. These mini sessions are at a location of my choosing and I announce them on my Instagram stories, so be sure to be following me to get first dibs!

DO YOU OFFER MINI SESSION?

DO I PAY IN FULL OR DO YOU REQUIRE A RETAINER TO SECURE MY DATE?

For regular sessions, I require a $150 retainer and the remaining balance is due one week before your session. For weddings, I require a 25% retainer and the remaining balance is due one month before your event.

You can expect a whole lotta fun! I'm a pretty silly person who loves cracking jokes and keeping you laughing throughout your session. I'm a tiny bit clumsy, so I might even trip during your session (which actually creates more laughs for me to capture). My goal is to make the whole picture taking process a fun experience. I bring a speaker so we can play your favorite music to help you relax, guide you through posing and what to do, and hype you up the whole time! 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN WORKING WITH YOU?

UM HECK YES!

DO YOU TRAVEL?

Get a good night's sleep! The last thing you wanna do is show up to your session looking and feeling tired. A lot of my clients will wear an eye mask the morning of their session to moisturize and brighten their under eyes. Also, make sure you eat before your session so you aren’t hangry (and be sure to do a teeth check before heading out!). 

WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP PREPARE FOR MY SESSION?

ABSOLUTELY! If you only have a general idea of where you’d like to take photos, or no idea at all, don’t sweat it—I got you! I have so many pretty spots to recommend. We will 100% find the perfect location for you.

"where do I start!? Hiring Sadie for our wedding was the best decision we could have made. She not only played the role of photographer but she also did everything in her power to make our day special (even if it wasn't her job) She is so goofy and will keep everyone laughing. She is purely genuine and you can't help but love her! She was a confidant I needed and a ear to hear my frustrations. Now lets talk about the best part, HER PHOTOS. a.m.a.z.i.n.g!! She has a passion for what he does and she does it very well! I loved her attention to detail and ability to control the room!. Can not wait to work with Sadie again!"

"She is so goofy and will keep everyone laughing"

Riley Cruz

"Sadie was so fun to work with! Amazing photos that the compliments are never ending on! I highly recommend her work for absolutely anyone. She is so dedicated to her work and her personality makes taking photos for an awkward couple like us so much better!.”

“Sadie was so fun to work with”

Cheyenne Milgram

"Sadie is incredible! She was great and went the extra mile (literally) by agreeing to meet us at the top of Glacier Point in Yosemite at Sunrise on the summer solstice - longest day of the year! She made us feel plenty comfortable and included so many great shots in our gallery. We hope to share many future exciting moments with Sadie behind the lens!"

"Sadie is Incredible!"
