FROM A REAL BRIDE ~ Deanne
I really put wedding pictures as #1 on the list of most important for our wedding. It is the only thing you will take with you, the only thing you can share to glimpse at the special day for years and years to come. That is a lot of pressure for my (now) husband and I who rarely even take selfies! But, I also had in my mind images of our wedding—of capturing the essence of the day without it being so cliché, so over the top or corny. I wanted our pictures to simply be beautiful and effortless. I obsessed over Sun & Sparrow from the moment I came across their shots at my Calamigos Ranch venue. I poured through their blog posts and hundreds of pictures. I just knew in my gut they were the one.
From our engagement shoot to the very last picture of the wedding night, Tiffani and her team made us feel more than comfortable. Each picture was meaningful, thoughtful, and majestically shot—the drama without feeling too forced. I could not believe it was us in those photos! But, more importantly, our photos candidly reflected our love for each other in the most pure way from that day. Sun & Sparrow and their team are magical. I do not know how they did it, but I am eternally grateful they were a part of our big day and we have these photos to cherish forever.

Tiffani and Ellie are talented, professional, and insanely cool! While planning our wedding, photography was at the top of my list of importance—other than a husband and rings, photos are really the only thing you get to keep from your wedding day. So yes, I was very picky when hiring a wedding photographer. Sun & Sparrow’s photography is a beautiful balance of romance and drama. They treat photography as an art, and capture special moments between friends and family, and tender romantic moments between couples so effortlessly.
On our wedding day, Tiffani and Ellie arrived just as my bridal party and I walked into the venue. They knew exactly how to choreograph our getting-ready photos, and demonstrated incredible professionalism and sincerity throughout our special day. We are so lucky to have hired Sun and Sparrow as our wedding photographers, and now have them as friends!

Our first impression of Sun and Sparrow was only based on what we could see in their photos online. The ways they used natural lighting in outdoor spaces was beautiful and eye catching. After my first few conversations with Tiffani, I felt so comfortable. She was easy to talk to, extremely knowledgable and ready to answer any and all questions. We needed and wanted the Sun and Sparrow team to cover our engagement photos and wedding day.
On the day of our wedding, Tiffani, Ellie, Winston and Aaron were everywhere. They were like little ninjas silently in every corner making sure to capture every possible moment we would want to remember. They can even wrangle a rowdy (drinking) group of 8 groomsmen into position with one word. That's no easy feat! At the end of the day, they made us feel comfortable, at ease, and ourselves. As someone who has no idea how to look romantic and polished, they sure made me look good!!

I remember looking for wedding photographers on The Knot and Wedding Wire, Sun & Sparrow was the first one I looked at. I knew I wanted them to shoot our wedding so I reached out to them right away. Few moments later I received a call from Tiffani and instantly just hit it off. We were on the phone for over 30 minutes just getting to know each other and what my plans were for the wedding. Tiffani got to know my husband and I on a personal level, make us feel comfortable in from the camera and captured our love for each other. From the beginning, they were incredibly warm and genuinely invested in us, our love story and helping us craft a wedding day of our dreams.
Tiffani would send me wedding inspiration pictures that she knew reflected our personalities and wedding day vision, they helped develop our wedding day timeline and at the end of a long wedding day, they joyfully hopped in our photo booth to take silly pictures with us. It's clear from their work that they capture beautiful images, but it’s their warmth and personal investment in us and our love that make them the best investment we made during our wedding planning process.
FROM A FOREVER CLIENT - Heather Klaus
A heart felt thank you to Tiffani and Ellie, time and again you have delivered the most magical and beautiful photos of my family! From an enchanting rainy day engagement shoot (thank you for not backing down from that adventure!), a dreamy wedding shoot, to capturing precious moments of my family. You girls have such a passion and warmth that shows in every photo you take.
We have been taking photos with these gals for years now and I could not be happier having such a beautiful team there to help capture memories, capture the love of life and to help tell my family's stories! Tiffani and Ellie don't hold back, they get their feet "dirty", engage their subjects, smile and laugh with us, cry with us, they are story tellers...and it always feels like they have captured a fairy tale when I see the end result!
So much gratitude for you ladies, thank you for capturing the hearts of my life and for bringing such amazing and beautiful energy to all that you do! I look forward to many more awesome moments captured to look back on!
Ever grateful ~ Heather Klaus-Duarte

I woke up on the morning of my wedding to a text from Tiffani wishing me a happy wedding day and telling me that she couldn’t wait to see me soon. When Sun & Sparrow arrived to my bridal suite, I remember wanting to hop out of my makeup chair to give them a hug.

From the first phone call to the hug good-bye at the end of the night, Sun and Sparrow felt like family. Every conversation I had with Tiffani was one full of joy. Her attention to detail made everything else fall into place. She always made me feel as if I was her only client, which was so special to me.
When Tiffani arrived the morning of our big day, I instantly felt at ease. She came with a smile, a team and added details for that extra touch to make our photos truly shine. Her professionalism was something to be admired, and her kind heart brought an extra light to an already gorgeous day. Sun and Sparrow’s ability to capture our wedding day, with all the love that surrounded it, will be something we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

From the moment Tiffani and I spoke, I knew we’d be friends. There is something about her warmth and her energy that makes you feel like the most important bride in the world. Meeting her and her sister Ellie in person solidified our decision in choosing Sun and Sparrow to be a part of our wedding.
It truly makes a difference having photographers invested in YOUR story. It was such a wonderful experience working with Tiffani and Ellie because they not only made us feel comfortable in front of the camera but also excited to see the results. Seeing the sneak peeks after our engagement, and then again after our wedding day made my heart skip a beat!! It’s obvious that these girls are thoughtful about their work, that they dedicate an infinite amount of hours on perfecting their art.
My experience with them, and their work truly inspired me personally. Being a creative myself who was at the time a novice photographer, I quickly became their #1 fan!! I was so grateful for the photographs they captured that soon after our own wedding, I reached out and asked if they would mentor me in photography, they said yes! That was four years ago and to this day
I am extremely appreciative to have met Tiffani, Ellie and the rest of the Sun & Sparrow team. I can honestly say they are one of a kind – as a previous bride and now a fellow wedding photographer; I just cannot stop raving about them!
FROM WRITER AND EDITOR ~ Autumn Kraus
I’m the blog manager for Desireehartsock.com, a wedding inspiration website, and have followed Sun & Sparrow for quite some time. In my job, I’ve sorted through thousands of wedding submissions, seeking the best weddings and photography to feature on our site. Sun & Sparrow always stood out to me—these ladies have such a beautiful imagination when it comes to their work and their images are lush, romantic, and full of life and love. I’ve featured them multiple times on Desireehartsock.com and so many brides found inspiration in their stunning photos.
When I had my daughter, Juliet, I knew there wasn’t anyone else I would want to photograph our first week at home as a family of three. Tiffani was as wonderous on the job as her photos were magical. She worked with my little girl and captured her sweet spirit in the most exquisite ways. We will always treasure these photos and I couldn’t recommend any photographers more highly than Sun & Sparrow.
