About Aviva Media Photography

Sarah Heilbronner

Founder, Photographer

Hi! I'm Sarah. Congratulations on taking the next step in your wedding planning! Choosing to work with me earns you more than just a photographer; you get a hype-girl, a dress fluffer, a confidant and a new best friend. Since we are now future besties, here's what you should know about me: My love for portraiture stems from the joy it brings me to make others feel beautiful. Few things make me feel as giddy as photographing weddings, engagements & proposals, and I can't wait to capture the next stage of your love story. My strengths lie in natural lighting, illuminating colors, and catching the candid moments that make you, you.

I attribute my success as a photographer to the way I make people feel. You should feel nothing short of cloud 9 on your wedding day, and you can count on me to ensure you feel relaxed and amped up to enjoy one of the most special days of your lives. From our first consultation to the delivery of your gallery, I will work tirelessly to accommodate your desires. We'll work together to customize your day, ensuring your most important moments are captured. I even serve as a mini-wedding planner, timing our photo schedule with all the events of your big day. Wedding planning should be fun - let me take one less thing off your to-do list.

    I’ve hired Sarah several times over 2 years and hired her to take photos of me proposing to my fiancée in Central Park. Sarah was great at keeping my nerves calm while we organized the logistics of popping the question. Sarah found a great spot in the park and, in order to keep the surprise hidden, pretended to be a stranger while she offered to take pictures. After I proposal, we did a full photoshoot and Sarah was great and giving directions and making my fiancée feel comfortable (who can be a bit camera shy). The photos Sarah took are some of the best photos I have and even got the attention of People Magazine.

    We had to change photographers due to changing venues, and like a beacon of light or a divine intervention from God- I was referred to Sarah by another photographer. From our first zoom meeting I knew she was the one (it took me faster to realize she was the one than it took me to realize my husband was the one!). She was just so knowledgeable and passionate about her craft. She had such a burst of energy and enthusiasm which was very needed, because the time we were going through was so stressful. Fast forward to the wedding day, we were running behind because other vendors were super late. I was even more stressed and there were too many details to remember. Sarah was extremely patient and kind. She made me feel beautiful and grounded. She kept praising me and guiding me through pictures. I got sneak peeks in less than a week and I almost fainted at the beauty of them! I couldn’t believe they were my pictures. If the sneak peeks were that beautiful, I cannot WAIT to see the rest! Sarah please don’t stop doing what you do. You truly have a gift. You listened to what I wanted, you hyped us up, you ignored my bridezilla moments and you worked soooo hard to capture our beautiful day. If we need an NYC photoshoot, you’ll be the first one to call! We love you 3

    Sarah was everything we hoped for and more! My husband and I wanted to do 'farewell' pictures to mark three years in NYC before moving away. It was a bit of an unconventional ask, but Sarah went above and beyond. Our entire experience was seamless: Sarah was extremely communicative before, during, and after our session, she made us feel so comfortable posing for photos, she had the best ideas for backdrops in Central Park, and the photos we've received so far are beautifully edited. She is creative, warm, upbeat, and such an overall pleasure to work with! We are so grateful for her work!

  • Awesome experience for any occasion!

    Sarah is incredible at what she does. She makes you feel so comfortable the entire shoot and captures breathtaking photos. She has an eye for using the landscape around and picking the perfect shooting location. She was so supportive with researching ideas and so helpful in drawing out what we were looking for in out photos. I would HIGHLY recommend her for any occasion.
