Lovely words people said about me as their photographer, and I didn’t even pay them.
Lovely words people said about me as their photographer, and I didn’t even pay them.
We were married on the June long weekend at a beautiful property called Worrowing. We had seen some of Sarah’s work to date and were drawn to her style of ‘documenting’ events as they occur, as opposed to staging and influencing events. We were stoked when we enquired and she was available.
We found Sarah to be the perfect balance of cruisy and efficient. She made us feel very comfortable and in many ways we hardly noticed she was there, for example as we were getting ready, during the ceremony. At the same time, she was able to hustle us and our guests when it was time for some group shots, which we were grateful for!
The photos came through really quickly. We absolutely love them. Looking through them is like getting to re-live a really really good dream. We love how natural they are…all the laughing, tears, silly and serious parts, hugs, dance moves…she really was a ‘fly on the wall’. The online access to the photos meant we could look through them all as a slideshow with our family and mates, and download them really easily.
We’d highly recommend Bear Hunt Photography – Sarah you’re a legend and we appreciate you and your work!

Sarah is amazing! Not only warm and friendly, but also a gifted photographer with a really unique way of capturing everyday stories. We love having her photograph us!
Katherine & Lewis
I couldn’t wait to start sharing these! Your photos are BEAUTIFUL! And extraordinary in capturing the absolute essence of the weekend. Thank you so much!! You were also so calm despite often having your gorgeous baby strapped to you! I’m in awe of your work and these photos, thanks again xxx
Caitlin from Rumpus Jamboree
We have worked with Sarah twice now and will continue booking her in the future for other important events in our family. So far she has done some maternity photos and some when our daughter was 3 weeks old. The photos were amazing!
She does a great job at capturing people in a natural setting doing what you would normally do and her portrait shots are great too. I strongly recommend booking her for your next event.

Hi Sare! They ALL look amazing! Have just forwarded your email to the kids. THANK YOU SO MUCH xxx
Thank you for beautifully capturing our little family at our favourite places to play. The slideshow was also incredibly touching – it really gave us the feels! We’re so glad that our first ever family photos were taken by you 🙂
Jeremie & Elizabeth
Wow, just so happy with Sarah’s work. In the aftermath of a rain bomb she came through for us at our muddy wedding and was amazing. I don’t love the spotlight and Sarah was just subtle, present but not in your face. The shots she captured are so emotive for us and just take my breath away still when I look at them. Really enjoyed her just capturing moments rather than spending a lot of time posing. 100 percent happy to recommend her.

Sarah photographed my engagement party on the weekend and I couldn’t be happier with her service and her photographs.
From the moment I met Sarah I’d felt like I’d known her for years. She is so friendly, warm and welcoming. She felt like a guest at the party not the photographer. She just fit right in, so much so that many of the guests asked whether she was one of my friends.
I was so pleased with her on the night but I was even more impressed with the photos when I received them. They were everything I’d dreamed they would be. I would have no hesitation hiring Sarah again or recommending her to anyone – she is amazing!!
Nicole & James
Sarah is beyond talented and she beautifully captured our routine with our new baby girl. The photos captured our daily life and our hearts. We cannot wait for Sarah to document future milestones in our daughter’s life. Thank you x

Sarah took such beautiful photos of our adult children, their partners and our grandson of 3 months at the beach. This was a Christmas gift to us and we couldn’t have been more thrilled.
We now have special memories of the first Christmas spent with our grandson thanks to Sarah.

We absolutely cannot thank you enough… the photos are so AMAZING!
They tell a perfect story of the day and you’ve captured all the moments that we never want to forget. Watching the slideshow, I feel like I am reliving the day. Even now, over a month on, I laugh and cry and awwww in all the right places! I can’t stop singing your praises, my guests cant stop talking about you and my parents are bragging about you to all of their friends! And along with all the amazingness of the photos, thank you so much for your amazingness on the day! You were so fun and relaxed, it felt like you were one of the guests – my friends were so sad when you had to leave – and I think that might be your secret to catching the real moments! We will definitely have you in mind for our next big moments and I have already and will continue to recommend you to everyone I know.
With much love!!! Alex and Tim xxxx
Alex & Tim
Sarah photographed our wedding two weeks ago and I honestly cannot even put into words how amazing she is!
I absolutely hate getting my photo taken by other people and I’m very self conscious but Sarah made me feel so comfortable and for the first time in my life I felt so beautiful in every photo she took.
We had so many compliments from our family and friends about Sarah and how lovely she was and how comfortable she made everyone. The photos are so much more than I ever could’ve imagined and I’m so grateful that we have the most beautiful memories to keep forever thanks to Sarah.
Everything was so relaxed and candid which looks so much more beautiful than having to do really forced ‘say cheese’ kind of photos. I honestly cannot recommend Sarah from Bear Hunt Photographer highly enough and I can’t wait to have Sarah capture other special moments in our lives together.
Shauna & Kane
Very professional service, & photos – Sarah came to the hospital straight away in the morning & even though I would go on to labor for hours into the evening, she was patient, respectful of our personal space, & a lovely person to have around as part of our birthing experience.
We are So pleased with the photos – Sarah captured moments of our experience into a photographic story line, especially when things didn’t go to plan through labor & she was able to follow dad & Bub into special care, where I now can treasure those moments too, of what I couldn’t see at the time.
Communication was clear with us through my pregnancy, & the follow up & delivery of our photos was highly efficient and lovely. The Nursing Unit Manager of the hospital was also impressed with the service & how professional Sarah was with respecting the hospitals privacy as well as loving the photos, & is going to recommend these services to the patients of the hospital.
Highly recommended by us, thanks for being part of our journey!

My partner arranged Sarah for a photo shoot for his mums birthday but little did I know he proposed and Sarah captured it all on camera.
Sarah did the most amazing job, the photos came out beautifully.
Sarah is the most loveliest person I couldn’t of asked for a better photographer to capture our special moment. We will definitely be telling everyone about Sarah and we will see her at our wedding.
Sarah took incredible photos of our newborn baby! She took beautiful candid photos that really captured the moment of us with our new baby!
We aren’t people to usually have professional photos taken because we don’t like posing. Sarah took all the amazing photos without asking us to pose once. She came over and asked us to go about our normal day and took photos from that. Nothing felt forced or contrived!! We will treasure the photos forever! We would highly recommend Sarah!!
Poppy & Greg
Sarah’s photographs truly speak for themselves. I engaged with Sarah to take some professional headshots for me ~ but I didn’t want a “typical boring corporate shot”. I am delighted with the results!!
As someone who doesn’t particularly enjoy having my photo taken, Sarah was able to put me at ease, answered any questions I had and we had a sensational time hanging out for a few hours at her place!
As she explained, it is important for a photographer to take the time to get to know their subject, when trying to capture a headshot, which can feel so intimate. Thank-you Sarah so very much for not only my photographs but the overall experience, I couldn’t be happier!!
Sarah did such an amazing job with our wedding photos, we could not be happier. She was so lovely, easy going and flexible on the day and in the lead up to. The pictures were beautiful, candid and so perfectly capture the day. Thank you Sarah

Sarah came to our home for a family photoshoot. She made us all feel relaxed during the shoot and captured our family enjoying special (and rare) time together. Thank you Sarah! Your photoshoot was the best Christmas present ever!
Sarah was everything we hoped for in a wedding photographer and more. She has a calm, laid back vibe and the photos she took were stunning, documenting the day perfectly.
Lucy & Toby
Sarah, LOVE LOVE LOVE these!! Thank you SO much. You did an amazing job capturing SO many people (and making me look nice x). Special memories for our family. So happy xxx
Sarah’s photos are exquisite. She has an excellent eye for the subtle and telling details that create a whole story around an event. The composition of her pictures is always thoughtfully considered and she’s an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a professional photographer.
The photos Sarah was able to produce were absolutely incredible! She captured the love and emotion so genuinely. We can’t wipe the smile off our faces looking at the photos. Thank you so much for not only capturing these moments so beautifully but being an amazing guest who added genuine joy to our special day.

We decided to elope on our wedding day with two friends as witnesses.
Sarah arrived early and immediately became part of our small group.
She was lots of fun, very warm & just the right amount of cheeky which we loved.
We felt completely at ease with her, which is reflected in the photos she took.
She captured the emotions and the events of the day perfectly with her instinctive candid photography.
The slideshow Sarah curated was the perfect story of our special day to share with friends and family.
We waited 25 years to get married. We are delighted that we entrusted the recording of this day to Sarah and Highly recommend her. 5 stars all the way.
Can’t thankyou enough Sarah !

I couldn’t recommend Sarah more. Sarah is the photographer for the NFP (Not-For-Profit) I work for and consistently produces AMAZING photos for us.
She’s also taken professional portraits for me. Sarah is super skilled, reliable and has a knack for capturing photos that tell stories. She’s also just a lovely, warm person and has the unique ability to make her subjects feel totally comfortable, which is really important for us.
You won’t regret booking Sarah!
Sarah is an incredible photographer. She photographed my wedding and the images are beautiful. She did exactly what we asked and MORE! Couldn’t recommend her enough.
Verity & Javier
Sarah photographed my wedding in South Africa and did an absolutely amazing job. Everyone has been commenting about my pictures and how beautiful they turned out. She is exceptionally talented and I would 100% recommend her.

I found Sarah from searching local photographers and I’m glad I found her! She was able to take the pictures I needed and I’m more than happy with the photos! Would highly recommend Sarah for your photography needs.
Sarah was an incredible photographer! She perfectly captured our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with the photos. She was so flexible and helpful on the day. Every single guest at our wedding commented on how lovely she was. Thank you Sarah x

Sarah did the photography for my engagement party and I couldn’t be more impressed. From the very start she was very professional and quick at replying to my emails to the very end with the out come of the photos.
Everyone at the party commented on how great she was and how happy they were with the quality of the photos. Would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.
Brittany & Keiran
Absolutely amazing to work with and Sarah made our family feel so relaxed. So polite, friendly and ready to work with you 100% even regardless of the weather! The photos turned out incredible, better than we all could have imagined. Her work/photos are something we will cherish forever. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
My wife and I could not have asked for a better photographer than Sarah. Sarah’s photos captured the sincere, joyful moments our wedding day, which is exactly what we wanted. We are so happy with the photos she took, and we didn’t even realise she had taken many of them. She managed to take great photos from a distance so that she was hard to notice. She was warm and friendly, and happy to run with changes on the day. My wife and I decided to rush to the beach to get some photos before our ceremony, and Sarah was happy to come along, taking photos in the wind and rain. She even drove herself and gave the videographer a lift. She got some photos back to us soon after the day, with the full set earlier than we expected. We highly recommend Sarah.

I’ve exhibited and worked alongside Sarah, who is a real talent and genuinely cares about her clients and those around her. Highly recommended.
This incredible woman is beyond belief amazing. I cannot think of anyone else we would have wanted for our wedding day. Sarah captured all the special moments in such a considered and tasteful way, producing the most perfect photos that we will cherish for a life time. Not only is she a hugely talented photographer but her calming and caring presence on the day put both my husband and I at ease as we both are pretty camera shy. Please, please choose her for your special event be it wedding, birth or enjoying a special moment in life. You will be so glad you did!

Sarah is too humble to admit how talented she is. She always manages to capture the perfect moment and the essence of who people are in a candid manner.
Kevin and I would like to say a big big thank you for being our wedding photographer!
You did such an amazing job, the photos are absolutely stunning and very natural, and we received lots of compliments from family and friends. You really knew how to rally the people on the day and you made it fun 🙂
Thank you again for everything and all the best for 2020!

I had the pleasure of Sarah coming into my home yesterday and photographing my beautiful family.
She has captured natural everyday memories that I will treasure forever. Would recommend her to anyone. Thank you so much.
Sarah photographed our wedding on 11th August and we could not have asked for a better photographer!
The photos we got from her exceeded both of our expectations a million times over. I have gone through all the photos myself about 10 times and love them more each time I look at them.
Each person we have spoken to from the wedding has spoken about how great Sarah was to have there, and everyone loves the photos! Sarah took the time to get around to each guest at the wedding and get a snap or two of everyone.
I highly recommend Sarah to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer or just a photographer in general! Not only were her photos amazing but she is so easy to get along with and makes you feel at ease while she is taking the photos.
Thanks for everything you did for us Sarah!!
Kane & Shauna
I just had my first baby and thought it would be nice to get some photographs of his early days. We organised to have it done when Jack was 2 weeks old. We have never had professional photos taken before and didn’t know what to expect.
Sarah was friendly and made us feel at ease about the whole process, we had such a nice time and it was really lovely to share the special moment with Sarah. The photos were ready in one week and all I can say is WOW. The photos are beyond my expectations, so happy with how they turned out, very natural.
I would love to have Sarah photograph our special occasions in the future.
Sarah is a fabulous photographer. We hired her services for our intimate registry style wedding and she went above and beyond to capture those perfect moments. She is amazing to work with – making us and our guests feel super comfortable while also being very professional and patient while we all fussed about. Her style is more candid, action shots but she was more than willing to adapt her style to suit our needs and wants and took some amazing group photos for us. I would highly recommend Sarah at Bear Hunt photography for anyones wedding or events.
Samantha & Dante
Sarah is an absolute gem! My (now) husband and I have just received the photos of our small registry wedding (close friends and family only) and reception lunch, and we and our guests love them. She was professional and friendly all throughout, very accommodating of our specific requests while still giving us helpful advice on things we aren’t well-versed in e.g. poses, settings, arranging everyone for group pics etc. She captured all of us so candidly and the editing elevates the genuine quality of the pictures without being overly stylised. I will happily recommend Sarah’s service to anyone looking for a more documentary-ish and natural style of photos on their big day 🙂

We were very fortunate to be recommended to Sarah to photograph our elopement earlier on this year.From the very first telephone conversation we new Sarah was the right person for our day. Due to bad weather we had to change our wedding day and venue, Sarah was always understanding and flexible with us. On the day Sarah arrived before time to get a scope of the grounds. We were a bit nervous as we are not used to getting our photo taken, Sarah soon put us at ease and once the ceremony started we even forgot she was there. Thank you so much Sarah for being part of our day, the photos and little slide show are so much more than we ever expected and they truly tell a storey of the whole day. Anyone who is looking for a photographer don’t look any further than this wonderful lady!!!!!Elopement at Airbnb in Berry, South Coast, NSW

Sarah is awesome. We had her for our small, intimate, family only wedding in Bowral.
She has a beautiful energy and was always present whilst not being distracting. We had a lot of fun with her and are so very happy with all the photos. We would definitely work with her again!

Sarah is such a lovely soul who takes such beautiful pictures. It was so much fun spending the day with her and the result is amazing! We love every picture. I highly recommend her!! Thank you Sarah, you did a fantastic job!
Sarah, These photos have made me laugh and cry. They have captured so perfectly and vividly the heart and soul of the day. I feel like a guest walking through my own wedding.
Perfect doesn’t actually seem like enough of a compliment, you have given us something beyond that. The framing, lighting and emotion you have been able to capture means we have a record of what was such a perfectly imperfect day in our eyes.
I am so glad we had you to put up with our foolish ways and my hectic family. And although we were terribly awkward during our portraits you somehow have made us look like half decent and sensible humans.
Sarah was the absolute perfect choice for our wedding photographer. From the moment we booked her to the day we received her photos, she was professional, considerate, and a joy to work with. She understood our brief perfectly, and took some truly beautiful photos on our wedding day.
We consider ourselves really, really lucky to have had the pleasure to have her there as our photographer – she kept everyone happy whilst taking photos, and took some really stunning shots without making anyone feel stressed out or under pressure.
I genuinely can’t recommend her enough for anyone looking for a photographer for any event.

Sarah’s work is outstanding! She is such a dedicated and observant photographer, throwing herself into each situation with full enthusiasm!
It has been a pleasure to have her involved with some of the exhibitions at Moving Mountains Gallery, and see her work develop over this time.
She is very talented at her profession and you will find an elegant style and compassion in her work. She is really quick and reliable, and I highly recommend her. Thank you so much for your hard work Sarah.

We are delighted with Bear Hunt’s professional photo shoot for New Mama Kit Gift Hampers. Sarah’s natural style and ability to blend in with the models and props made the photos perfect for that authentic advertising style we were looking for. Shots were provided in a timely manner, and the job quote was very good value. Would highly recommend Bear Hunt for any personal or brand photography.

Sarah took my photos for my 50th and they are amazing. So many people commented on how great she was to work with and was able to really capture the night. Thanks so much ……I am so grateful.
Absolutely stunning work!! Captured the sentiment and emotion of the event so perfectly!
I have worked with Bear Hunt Photography 3 times now and will continue to book in every month for our events. The photos have helped us create a professional business image online which in turn has generated a large following helping us to grow our business.
Sarah is an absolute delight, best of all, she listens to your needs and always delivers! Highly recommended.

Sarah was an absolute dream. Right from the beginning she was warm, honest and really interested in us as a couple and what we wanted from our wedding photos. We chose Sarah because her photography style is unique and tends to focus on capturing moments and feelings rather than poses. Sarah was fun, easy going and super stealthy! most importantly, her photos were exceptional and we’re so happy we found her
Christie & Jonny
We recently hired Sarah to take our wedding photo’s and we are so glad that we found her.
On the day she was amazing, she was relaxed and so easy to talk to. I got numerous comments from my friends and family about how lovely she was. She wasn’t intrusive, actually most of the time we didn’t even notice she was there.
We received our photos much sooner than I was expecting and we just love them. The quality is amazing and she has really captured the feeling of the day. We couldn’t be happier.
