Sarah was absolutely incredible to work with! Her footage quality is fantastic -- she provided us with a terrific variety in visuals, even more than we could have wished for. She was also great with the interviews -- she made excellent on-the-spot decisions to get subjects feeling more comfortable on camera and clearly knew when to dive deeper into certain topics. On top of delivering everything we needed for this story, she was easy to communicate with and incredibly flexible, especially when this story took a few months longer to schedule than we anticipated. I look forward and hope to work with her on more projects in the future!

Sarah went the extra mile to borrow equipment from a friend that was needed for our shoot and got a COVID test before going to our shoot, which made the subjects of the interview very comfortable. Sarah also shot a quality product and delivered all assets in a very timely fashion. She also made herself available throughout the process and was easy to communicate with.
