"Sarah is amazing! Not only does she take stunning pictures, but she knows how to keep the day running smoothly. She is on point with everything and understands how to handle the bride, the groom, and the families during an exciting yet emotional day. If anything goes awry, Sarah is there to help out and make the best of the situation. Sarah was by far the BEST vendor we hired!! Highly recommend!! "
"humbled and honored"
Mar. 13, 2010
I am very humbled and honored by such words and praise. The truth is that I would never be able to make my clients so happy without their trust. I am blessed to be able to do what I love for people who are in love. Life is such a gift and we never really know how long we are here with the people we adore. So, fire away with the moments we are given & may we be so fortunate to be 90 looking through the images of our past, remembering what it felt like to be in our lovers arms that one fine day!
"Her love of natural lighting and her creativity was inspiring"
Mar. 13, 2010
We knew Sarah was going to be an amazing photographer from the moment we met her – her personality, enthusiasm, and desire to know the type of couple my (then) fiance and I were was so inspiring in this world where weddings can sometime become BIGGER than the couple.
Our engagement picture shoot further instilled that belief in our mind, as she worked with us to find a location that fit our personality (Historic Waynesborough) and captured our playful attitude and love for each other (some of our favorite Engagement Pictures are of us having a snowball fight).
I knew that Sarah was creative, inspiring, professional, and resourceful – but I never could have foreseen how important a role she would have played in our wedding day. When the hair salon / spa sent my veil home with another girl, Sarah was more than reassuring and comforting. She and her team quickly called a wedding contact in Philadelphia and through her connections (and as a favor to Sarah), a sophisticated bridal boutique (Bridals by Danielle) lent me two veils so that I could still have my dream ceremony. She literally "saved the day".
Sarah worked efficiently with my husband and I after the ceremony to get through our "Check list" of family and bridal party pictures. During earlier meetings we had brainstormed backdrops that spoke to my husband and my personalities – these included classic Philadelphia brick staircases in Rittenhouse, more modern and colorful shots in Anthropology, and (my favorite) a captured moment when my husband and I bought a hot dog from a vendor on the street in full wedding dress. Sarah strove hard before and during the wedding day to make sure these pictures were about AARON AND LARA, not generic Bride 1 and Groom 2. Her love of natural lighting and her creativity was inspiring to both of us – and even my (at first) camera shy husband was a ham by the end of the day!
Sarah and her team were everywhere during the ceremony – and touched base with my parents, the groom's parents, and other important members of the wedding party to make doubly sure that there were no important group shots we had not taken yet (my parents and in laws appreciated this so much!). I have 25 cousins on my father's side – and with Sarah's help we rounded them up for the first "cousin" picture in over a decade. (This is just an example… there are too many others to name…)
To wrap up – I cannot say enough about Sarah DiCicco (and her team) as our wedding photographer….. but in the end she was more than that, she became my fashion coordinator (I even started to run by hair and jewelry selections by her prior to the wedding!), fairy godmother, and the 6th Bridesmaid in my wedding.
If you're smart, you'll try to snag her the day after you get engaged. I promise – she is completely worth it.
"better than we had even hoped"

She is wonderful to meet with prior to your wedding day, during your big day, and afterwards. She and her husband did gorgeous work and we are overly happy with the end product. She was better than we had even hoped!
"you are a part of the family now"

Dara & Rob
Sarah, You are absolutely incredible! Not only are you a wonderfully talented photographer but a great person. You made me feel so confident and comfortable throughout my wedding day. You have a unique style and the amazing ability to tell a story through her pictures. I knew from the moment I met you that we had a connection that would last beyond my wedding day, you are a part of the family now!
"huge hug and kiss to you both"
Mar. 13, 2010
Sarah and Tony,
I wanted to thank you and send a huge hug and kiss to you both. When we first met in your studio I said I hate to have my picture taken and to look at myself in photos. Sarah you response was "no problem." That is when I knew you would be our wedding photographer and I would trust you
implicitly with that day.
Well- I want you to know that for someone who hates to have her picture taken and runs from the camera at every friend's party or event... I cannot stop looking at our photos. The moments you both captured are perfect and exactly what I wanted. I knew it was a great day but looking back through the photos had no idea just how much I smiled that day rain or not! The picture of our rings on the Steiff rabbit is so sentimental. I am sure you are not aware but those small animals were my childhood collection and that little rabbit is over 30 yrs old.
I learned the most important thing while planning that wedding that I tell everyone who is getting married. "It is all about whom you surround yourself with on that day." It was wonderful to see your faces when you walked in the house with huge smiles. It was as if more of my friends showed up!
Thank you Thank you Thank you
"amazing role model, mentor and friend"

Heidi Schetter- My Assistant
I just wanted to send you an email because I want you to know how much I appreciate everything you have done a continue to do for me. I left work yesterday knowing that I am blessed to be given the opportunity to work with such an amazing role model, mentor and friend. You have taught me so many great things over these past almost 4 years. I truly feel that I would not be who I am now if it weren't for you giving me the chance to be your assistant! It feels amazing to do what I love to do and gain experience from you. It may all sound a little corny but everyday I am proud of who I work for. I love you crazy Chicco and just wanted to remind you of that.

I am so looking forward to sitting and catching up with you two!!! I hope you have the most wonderful New Year!!! Thank you so much for all that you have done for us!!! You made my memories!!!!

"soft, easy approach to shooting"
Mar. 12, 2010
Amy Jo Scaglione- QVC Television Personality
Sarah DiCicco is the most gifted photographer that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I initially hired Sarah to shoot head shots for use related to my national television career. I was so knocked out by her work that I subsequently hired her for all family photographs, and all ongoing needs related to my work.
The beauty of Sarah is her natural, soft, easy approach to shooting. You find yourself instantly at ease, and the tendency to tense up in front of the camera just falls away. Sarah gently makes suggestions but never over poses you. She literally brings out the very best in you, and in turn captures those extremely special shots you can only hope for!
My greatest advice is to let Sarah take the lead. What she sees behind the lens is very different than your perception in front of it. Allow her to create the overall mood and you will come away with photographs that you will cherish forever.
Without reservation I highly recommend Sarah as not only a very gifted photographer, but also as a solid and honest businesswoman. ~
"cry over every picture"
Mar. 12, 2010
Margaret Sampson (Mother of the Bride)
We received Heather & Anthony's wedding photo album yesterday. I was ecstatic before even opening...knowing I would probably cry over every picture. It is truly an amazing work of art! Your photography is breath-taking! The way in which the pictures are presented tells a story, has feeling. Every picture is a precious memory that will be treasured forever.
We had to share with some friends of ours today. They were WOW-ed with every page.
Best of all, you captured the emotion of this amazing day. I remember Heather's excitement when we met in your office and your shared your work and with conversation a bonding began. You were absolutely the perfect choice for her special day.
Thank you Thank you Thank you!
Best wishes from a grateful mother, Margaret Sampson
Heather & Anthony (Bride & Groom)
Sarah is absolutely amazing! The quality of her work is bar none! Her eye is that of the masters and her work ethic unparalleled. Most of all, she has an incredible personality that will make you and your guests instantly comfortable. She gave us the best gift of all....a beautiful story of our day in pictures! Everyone who has seen her work has been blown away.
WE LOVE HER!!!!!! -Heather and Anthony Beverly
