Wedding Wire @ Sarani Weddings

I had really high hopes for Sarani photography but in then I did not feel like I got anything more than average pictures. My photographer and his assistant were the nicest people to work with and working with them before and after the wedding was painless. We even got our photos back a little earlier and they threw in several 8×10 prints plus a giant 12×18 print. However, in the end I was left wanting with the actual photos themselves. First, there wasn’t a single photo from our ceremony that included myself and my husband’s faces together at anything closer than about 20 feet away or without something blocking some of the frame. You either see his face and the back of my head or vice versa or you can see us both but only from the beginning of the aisle or off to the side or you can see us but the officiant is taking up half the frame. We had only maybe one picture where we weren’t mid-sentence either. The after ceremony shots were better but a lot were taken from just too far away and we just got lost in the pictures.
The second source of disappointment was in their lack of knowledge of the resort. I picked them as they were a recommended vendor from my resort. However when we started the after ceremony pictures, my photographer asked “where do you want to go? I’ve never been to this resort.” We were really surprised that they would send someone who has never lead a shoot at our resort before. We really had no idea what the best spots to go were. And we were not given much in the way of directions on how to pose. At one point, he just told us “just dance or walk or do whatever you want.” Huh? Considering they cost just as much as a US photographer, I would have expected to have a better experienced photographer who took better shots and knew our resort.

Sarani and her team were amazing! They were professional yet still felt like part of the family member.
They captured all of the special moments during the wedding and reception and did it through the eyes of an artist. The photos of us on the beach were so beautiful and well done that the background almost looked fake. The pictures were more beautiful then I could have hoped for, and I am so happy that Sarani was my photographer on our very special day!

I am writing this review because Sarani (& her wonderful team) undoubtedly deserve the time that it takes to spread the word about just how wonderful she is! I promise she is so worth it!! I knew from the first time that I came across her work that I had to have her photograph my wedding because I had to have some of those amazing photos featuring my own wedding. She actually became a source of inspiration throughout the remainder of the planning process. And now that our wedding has come and gone, and recently getting to preview some of our photos, I will say without a doubt that I couldn’t have made a better decision. I have had nothing but the best experience with her from the beginning. And after finally meeting her in person & having had the pleasure of working with her the entire day, I sincerely felt as though she was an old friend. After the wedding I couldn’t help but rave about how great she was and that was before I even knew just how rewarding the end result would actually be – that being the opportunity to relive our wedding day from now till forever in the most extraordinary way, as she captured it perfectly in every way imaginable – & so much more! I cannot say enough about how awesome she is! Not only is she an incredible artist with an eye for creating those “wow!” & “awwe…” moments, she is genuinely there for you the entire time. She is a true professional who loves what she does! It becomes evident as to why her work is so amazing. Looking back it seems like our wedding day took forever to come and then only seconds to go by, which is another reason why I knew how important it was to choose the best to capture the memories. I have no doubt that I did just that. She gives you every piece of her heart and soul for the entire experience…with the utmost attention paid to every detail, especially the subtle ones that I didn’t even know existed until brought to life through her artistry. In all sincerity, she is truly the best!

Sarani is amazing, and her photographs top that! This review is difficult to write cause words really can’t express how happy we are we chose Sarani as our wedding photographer. During the actual wedding day, we instantly felt so comfortable with her. She fit in like a family member. She was professional, but also made the whole experience so enjoyable. She had great picture ideas, and the results prove it. We also did the underwater TTD with her. That was a once in a lifetime experience! The location she took us to, was probably the most beautiful spot in the world I had ever visited. Again – she made the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable. A few weeks ago we received the final pictures, album and oil painting canvas. Today we picked it up now it’s been wrapped round a frame – SO happy with it. Her pictures are so great, I can’t believe it’s actually us. Seriously, she is worth every penny. One day when we have a family and are back in Mexico, we will for sure be hiring her again!

Sarani was a DREAM to work with. She was willing to work with us to find a package that fit what we were looking for. The day of she continually reassured me, kept me calm and in general made the experience one that I remembered instead of feeling like I was in a bubble of hustle and bustle that day.
She captured our day of memories through beautiful photos, in which now looking at I can feel the emotions through. You will NOT regret using her and her amazing team!! We also did a trash the dress, I had no clue something like that should be on everyones bucket list!! We had such a fun day shooting and such great memories built between my husband and I on this intimate, awesome, cliff jumping day!!! Thank you Thank you Sarani!!!

After having seen Sarani’s portfolio, we were highly anticipating our own photos and video, but nothing could have prepared us for how impossibly AMAZING they are! Better than a dream come true. The way she captured every moment, every important relationship and candid moment proves Sarani is absolutely unmatched in her field.
From the booking process through photo delivery, Sarani was easy to communicate with and a true professional. She helped us find the perfect package to suit our needs and cared so much about making sure it was right. Her eye for finding beauty in all things is unreal, and her team- the “Pink Army” as I called them!- were just as much a joy to work with. They were on time, professional, respectful of us and our unique families and somehow captured every moment of our day without being intrusive. From the moment she arrived, she felt like part of the family and every single one of our guests have mentioned how hard-working Sarani and her team are, and all are absolutely stunned at the quality of our photos and video. None of us knew beauty like this was possible until we saw it through Sarani’s lens. She has a gift you cannot believe is real, until you see yourselves as she sees you. We have looked at our album and video at least 50 times and have yet to do so without crying in joy! All couples have different budgets, and Sarani is not the least expensive option available, but do you want to take a chance on something as important as your wedding memories? Photography was the largest piece of our wedding budget, and not only was it worth every penny and more, we would make the same choice a thousand times over. Food is eaten and flowers die, but you will have these memories forever. Aside from choosing each other as husband and wife, hiring Sarani was the best decision we made for our wedding. Thank you, Sarani! You are a true artist and a cherished friend for life. Brooke & George 5-5-15

Unfortunately, due to the restrictions of this website I had to cut my two page review into a few paragraphs. But the entire review can be found on the best destination website and on Sarani’s FB page. Sarani’s price was a bit higher than most photographers I got quotes for, however if you have looked at her portfolio you will understand why and she was well worth it.
On my wedding day, I had five people total. They were very prompt and very professional. I really liked that they all wear a uniform which makes it easy to spot them. Throughout the entire wedding, I hardly noticed that they were there. The first thing we received was the sneak peak and it was beautiful! After the sneak peak, I believe we got all the wedding photos on a very neatly and beautifully packaged USB Drive. She really knows how to capture the day. By the way, those couples’ photos that you see in her portfolio, you know the ones…the ones that make you want to hire her; They all look like that in case you are wondering, ours were no exception and were just as gorgeous! After the photos were received we got the trailer for our wedding movie. I was especially nervous about this because I had seen 0 video footage up until this point. I was so happy with the trailer. Saranis team picked a perfect song for me and they highlighted the best parts of the movie. A few weeks later we then received the Video We did have some things we needed to edit but Sarani edited them no problem. Then it came time to work on the photo album, we ended up going with the most expensive option which turned out to be a huge book. I spent weeks narrowing down the photo selections which was very difficult but finally sent Sarani our selections. A few rounds of edits later, our beautiful album arrived in an equally beautiful case cover. Overall, we are super, super happy we choose Sarani. We get compliments constantly on how beautiful our wedding photos turned out. I am so glad that our wedding photos are so unique!

Sarani is REMARKABLE, words cannot explain the fantastic photos she delivers.Her group and Sarani came early in the morning prepared, and on time with visions of photo/video shots and made attempts to satisfy our every wish. Sarani came back out on a day that was sunny to make sure before we left to US, she would capture some photos on a nice day in our attire.After much contemplation we kept going back to Sarani because we really loved how unique her photos were and we felt that we couldn’t find that style anywhere else and more importantly her photos didn’t look like anyone else’s. Sarani is definitely not the cheapest option but you always get what you pay for and the video and photos are priceless. Guest will eat food, drink the drinks, and decorations will be gone but photos and videos are there forever. If you do choose Sarani the money would be well worth it as the pictures she captures are totally stunning. When you choose Sarani make sure you spend the extra money to do the Trash The Dress session. The pics that come under water is stunning, amazing, breath taking. Many of our family and friends are in awe every time they see pictures we received. Sarani and her team are able to capture moments, you think are not photo worthy but when you see the final product you just are in disbelief of how incredible the setting is. We were speechless when we saw our Album and the pictures that were sent. Sarani did our Trash The Dress, Pithi Ceremony, Mendhi Party, Hindu & Christian Wedding Ceremony and our Reception. Sarani is definitely a talented photographer who stunned a lot of our family and friends with her ability to take amazing photos. We have priceless photos and video moments that we will cherish and will always be grateful for. We would certainly refer Sarani to any couple who is getting married in Mexico
