Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding Photographers in Charlotte Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Sarah, from Elle Imaging.
Where have you been featured?
We have been featured in multiple print and online publications, including DIY Weddings, Beauty & Lifestyle Bride, Brown Sparrow Weddings, and Carolina Bride.
Why do couples love working with you?
Corrie and I dedicate ourselves to valuing each couples’ wedding day experience and photographic outcome as we would our own. We are friendly, authentic, and open with our brides and grooms, which in turn allows them the comfort and trust to open up to us as our clients, our photographic subjects, and our friends.
We limit the number of weddings we book each season, to ensure that all of our couples receive the attention and dedication they deserve. Our couples feel at ease knowing that we truly care about their wedding experience, and we will go above and beyond to ensure a smooth, stress-free day. I have connected so well with so many clients, that three of my best friends are former Elle Imaging brides!
What do you love most about being a wedding photographer?
There are so many reasons to love being a part of something as magical and intimate as a couples’ wedding day! Corrie and I treasure the challenge of capturing the authentic emotion, interaction, and beauty of unfiltered love. I believe that there is no greater satisfaction in a career than to be able to create something that will bring a client to tears (tears of joy, of course!), and that will be treasured by our clients and their families for decades to come.
How did you get started?
From a young age, I (Sarah) have been gifted with a creative and entrepreneurial spirit. My skills as an artist led me to study Illustration at the Rhode Island School Of Design, where I fell in love with storytelling through the mediums of film and digital photography. I was mentored by the world-renowned fine art photographer Henry Horenstein, who encouraged me to pursue my interest in capturing the whimsical, passionate, romantic, and complex nature of human relations.
Post graduation, wedding photography became my perfect match. I worked for several years as a second shooter for an incredibly talented wedding photographer in Chester County, PA. After relocating to Charlotte in 2011, I teamed up with Corrie Fewell, a like-minded and extremely talented fellow photographer and artist. She joined me as a permanent member of Elle Imaging, which we shaped to be a personalized, boutique-style business that caters to couples looking for truly exceptional imagery.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Elle Imaging! Sarah was very polite, helpful, extremely responsive, and consistently went above and beyond every step of the way to make us feel like we were her top priority. On the wedding day, Corrie and Anna were just as wonderful! Every single picture from every single photo shoot (bridal, wedding, and day after) exceeded all expectations!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and well worth every penny spent!!
Seriously so much I could say about Elle Imaging, but this review would be 20 pages long! I wanted a wedding photographer that displayed a vintage vibe, modern, innovative, unscripted, with a non-trendy style. Elle Imaging was all that and then some! From the beginning to the end of the entire wedding photography process Sarah was super sweet, professional, and prompt about EVERYTHING! She answered all of my questions, my calls, responded to e-mails super timely, posted sneaks peaks literally the same day the photos were taken, & created a user-friendly online album of our engagement and wedding photos for family and friends to enjoy and purchase. Elle Imaging just gets it! Sarah and Corrie are both unbelievably talented, editorial, and unique photographers. They are truly one of a kind. I have friends and family that have told me that our wedding photos are the best that they have ever seen & I couldn’t agree more! Our photos are so special in that they literally tell a story from beginning to the very end of our wedding day. Capturing each moment & all of the unbelievably amazing details! Having Sarah & Corrie of Elle Imaging has been a blessing & a dream come true. Elle Imaging is absolutely NEXT LEVEL when it comes to wedding photography and photography in general. I am forever grateful for their kindness and displayed talent!
I got my dream wedding pictures! They are romantic, timeless and flawless! Everyone has raved about our pictures. I could not be happier with the entire process from start to finish. Sarah provides a boutique, individualized approach. Truly one of a kind!
