"Sally Carpenter has to be the best photographer ever and we were lucky to have booked her. The day of our wedding she was phenomenal. She brought tension and nervousness to ease and we knew from the first camera shots that we hired a gem.
Her character and confidence showed throughout the busy day and it was comforting to know we were going to get amazing pictures... And we did! Once we got the pictures we felt like we paid a million dollars for the wedding... Sally and her second shooter Gael worked hard to make sure they got to every angle or spot to take the best shot. Her confidence showed many times as she took control of people's ideas or thoughts, added her professional advice and either agreed or came up with something that she knew would be a better shot. You need a photographer who isn't scared to show her knowledge and get you the best photo possible. Sally did just that. In fact on a bridge, she stopped a couple “Jeeping” from CT and used the Jeep as a candid shot. You can't find candid, spontaneous photographers like Sally. Our guests even noted how hard the photographers were working to get the best angle. In the video you can even notice Sally and her second shooter Gael simultaneously moving together, hundreds of feet away from each other working to get numerous angles on the next best picture.
We hired Sally on a few references and her world-wide resume speaks volumes. Our pictures were amazing and we decided to send a special thank you to her with an additional tip. We felt like we got the deal of a lifetime! :) We feel lucky to have been able to book her, It was the wedding of a lifetime because of Sally Carpenter and we owe her for the rest of our lives."...

Kathleen said... Sally Carpenter and her team of professionals exceeded our expectations in every way. Sally combines matchless artistry with consummate professionalism. Her photography is captivating. With a gorgeous palette (including stunning black and white photography), imaginative lighting, and inspired framing, her photography reflects many depths of love and joy. The plan was to have an intimate, simple, and fun wedding weekend, with a small group of family and friends. We had hoped that the photography would tell the story of a commitment and a community. Sally was sensitive to our choices and fit naturally into each event. It was clear that she allowed the personalities and caring to shine through. Her photos tell the story beautifully. Sally does her homework. She listens attentively. She carefully planned her shots for each setting, and when the weather dictated a change, she demonstrated impressive agility. Sally captured Dartmouth landmarks and navigated the weather challenges with humor and grace. There is nothing like a confident and creative photographer to keep stresses to a minimum! Sally Carpenter has a true gift and is a delight to work with. She brings imagination, practicality, expertise, and devotion to her craft. Her photos were delivered promptly and, just days after the wedding, she published her blog – which we shared with friends and family. They were wowed, and responded that her blog was the next best thing to being there. We will cherish Sally’s photos for years, as they bring back the joys of the weekend. I wholeheartedly recommend her services.
"I cannot wait to hire Sally again in the future! Sally's work is priceless. She understood exactly what I wanted, and delivered flawlessly. Sally captured so much of the joy in my wedding day; I am still amazed every time I look at the gorgeous photos. I am so grateful to have found Sally! No bride has ever looked back on their wedding day and complained that the photography was too wonderful." Danielle M
"Will and I got married at the beyond beautiful Riverside Farm in Pittsfield, VT. It was a destination wedding and we were referred by a coworker to Sally Carpenter. My coworker could not stop raving about the pictures she saw online and when we looked for ourselves, we booked immediately. Sally, was the most artistic and compassionate person during the MOST stressful planning period in our lives. She ensured we booked the best package that suited our needs. Sally and her assistant Gael arrived at our venue the day before and welcomed us with the sincerity and warmth. They came the day before to ensure they could gauge the ceremony proceedings at no additional cost. The pictures are beyond PHENOMENAL and the relationship you gain with Sally is priceless. Sally is artistic, direct and ensures you get what you paid for, if not more! She even sent a sweet gift right after the wedding which was a great surprise and the albums were truly a TIMELESS TREASURE. WE will never have another photographer in our lives and we look forward to many family photo sessions through her incredible company in the future. We were so incredibly blessed. Sally Carpenter is bar none, the BEST photographer in Vermont." Vesta P
"Sally is friendly, extremely patient and did a fantastic job on our wedding and our engagement photos! Everyone loved them and the quality and compositions were so varied and interesting. We had over 1000 images to choose from and when we chose the ones for our album, it was hard to leave any out...we loved them all. I would recommend her to anyone for weddings or engagements, she is one of the best!"...Erin T
"I loved the fact that Sally actually came and photogrphed the two of us and our wedding bling days before the wedding day. It was a fun, relaxed time and she got some beautiful detail pictures as well as some gorgeous, informal pictures of us. On the wedding day she was very professional but also friendly. All the pictures were beautiful, just beautiful! I just saw the pictures from a friend's wedding where she paid her photographer three times what Sally charged us and her pictures were not near as good as the ones we got.Yes, I would recommend her to anyone for a wedding photographer."..Tricia M
"Sally photographed our wedding ceremony and reception and we could not have been happier with our photographs or her service. The ceremony was informal but she managed to make it look like a grand affair and some of the photographs had a very editorial quality to them. I wanted black and white and the prints are so beautiful, with a lot of tones and depth. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone for any portraits, weddings or parties"...Rain W
"Sally and her assistant photographed our engagement and our wedding and we could not have been happier! She is very friendly and easy to talk to and she was happy to look at my Pinterest images and use those ideas for some of her shots. Her work is beautiful and we loved almost every image and our album is just gorgeous! I recommend her to all my friends because I really do think she is the best!"....Megan H
"Hire her, hire her, hire her! Her (Sally's) work is amazing and she took the most beautiful wedding pictures from the details of the rings and flowers to the final dance and she came out the day before to meet us and take pictures of our venue and a couple relaxed pictures of us. We were so impressed with our wedding images, we could not have asked for more. By all means, I recommend her to anyone and everyone." VM
