About Me

Hi, I am Sarah Nader.

I'm an award winning wedding photographer and wedding photojournalist from Chicago, Illinois. I was raised in the Chicago suburbs but now call Lincoln Square home with my husband and our two Golden Retrievers, Missy and Felony. When the dogs aren't keeping me busy I love traveling all over the world, cooking amazing meals, jumping on my Peloton and eating Thai food while binging Netflix.


With a background in photojournalism, I am a moment-driven photographer, with an eye for the romantic. That means you’ll see authenticity and real emotion in my photos. While I spend a small portion of the wedding day creating the necessary portraits, my passion lies in pursuing the moments that will be meaningful to look back on throughout the years. Capturing true, authentic joy is what I love most about photographing weddings!

“We are beyond thrilled with the photos Sarah took at our wedding! She was a total professional throughout the whole process, responding to communication promptly and helping us plan a timeline. She worked hard to get all of the posed family and bridal party photos we requested (no small feat) and also captured so many wonderful candid moments. We are so fortunate to have photos that really captured us as a couple and told the story of our day. I would highly recommend Sarah to any couple.”

“Sarah was fantastic! I was fairly organized but Sarah always asked the right questions to get the perfect look we wanted for our wedding. She was prompt, kept us on time, and stuck with us when it snowed on our wedding day in April! I would recommend her again and again!”
