You guys are an awesome team! I love how committed you are to the rescue community and love the pics you did for our website! One day we will book family photos. Keep up the good work!

We got photos of our two dogs, Bernie and Fritz. Sarah and Dave worked so well with the boys and they did a great job of ensuring they were comfortable and it’s very clear that they both have a passion for animals and photography. They captured our boys so perfectly and we love our photos! The turn around was very quick!

We got pictures of our Duchess taken by Sarah and David when she was our foster dog (yes, we are foster fails) and they were amazing. Did a wonderful job capturing the moments although Duchess was very distracted. They also did a wonderful job on editing out the leash and harness to make the pics look beautiful!

Though the weather didn’t exactly cooperate during our session, Sarah and David made our time together very enjoyable. They were both wonderful with our dogs. The final images were stunning. I was beyond pleased with my entire experience with them. You will be seeing Melon and Cornelius for another session in the future!

We have done photos with them several times and they are so amazing everytime! They work so hard and do whatever they need to do to get our stubborn dogs to pay attention and look at the camera. Amazing photos and wonderful people.

Sarah’s work is absolutely incredible. I’m in total awe of each photo. She has a God given gift and is able to capture each incredible moment. I don’t know how she does it, but every single one of her photos tells a beautiful story. In addition to that, she is incredibly generous and volunteers/donates so much to charitable organizations and I love supporting those who give back to others. She is a true artist and a wonderful person.

wonderful people! Very professional . It’s very difficult to take a picture of our dog as she hates camera’s and they did a fantastic job. Well worth every cent.

Sarah and Dave have photographed 3 of our fosters and our own dog. They are patient and go at the dogs pace. They understand dogs and are willing to work around their needs. They are great with well adjusted dogs and dogs who need extra time and coordination. Our dog is quite reactive and nervous around new people and they were able to take amazing photos of her without making her uncomfortable. Overall, we have had nothing but great experiences!!

Wonderful Photos! Sarah and David are unbelievably patient while working with their four legged subjects. They get amazing shots that really capture the dogs personality!

Sarah and Dave are not only passionate aminal lovers, but make a wonderful pet photography team. Dave puts in the effort of getting the animals’ attention, and coaxing good poses from them so Sarah can concentrate her photography skills on getting the shot. A great team!

Sarah and Dave have photographed my dog (and many other of my critters). They are always kind, caring, compassionate and understanding towards the animals (and people!) Patience and talent in this team! Thanks so much for the great memories!

I just wanted to send a little shout out to Sarah and David from Living Through The Lens. It’s no secret that our little Diamond can be terrified of the world around her. She doesn’t like to approach strangers (unless they are children) and even when we have people over that she has met before she doesn’t rush to meet them, and often she goes and lays in her kennel until they leave. 2 weeks ago Diamond had her photo shoot for Harts secret project and it was amazing. This was Diamonds first real experience since we’ve had her having “outsiders” join her on our daily routine. She wasn’t afraid to let them pet her or touch her. At some points she even let David take her leash without freaking out. I think the whole experience helped give her confidence in people. She had such a good experience with sarah and David. They were so kind and patient and made sure that she was comfortable. Since then we have noticed that she has become a lot more brave. She has been greeting our guests at the door with tail wagging. She has let people pet her. She has even snuggled (even to the point of going to lay on top of) new people that have come over to visit. She is even more interested in greeting people on our daily walks. It’s amazing what a good experience can do for a dog. Thanks again sarah and David for being a part of Diamonds continuing journey!

I am thrilled beyond belief! You captured the dogs in all their glory, playing together and sitting for a pose. I will be ordering from you asap and i will definitely ask to hire you again. Your patience working with rescue dogs and all the needs they have was a real specialty and not everyone has that skill set, also your choice of location was fantastic.

Just wanted to say your photographs are stunning!!! Our little family has been lucky enough to be able to adopt Hart’s Pfineus & give him a furrever home, and it was so exciting to see him getting bigger in your photo shoots, until we were finally able to meet him!

Hey Guys! Just want to remind you that your photos are beautiful, even when you have such sad stories to share through your experiences at HART. Living Through The Lens really captures such amazing moments with damaged animals and raises so much awareness about the negative stuff that happens in our backyard. Thanks for doing all that you guys do and please don’t stop. You have such a gift.

I actually live in the USA, but wanted to simply say thank you for volunteering your time and talents to give such gorgeous photos towards helping homeless pets. Quality photos are so very important in helping them get the attention and notice they deserve and in finding homes of their own…and your photos are beautiful. Thank you!

We were so excited to have our first puppy together and really wanted to get some professional pictures done of her as a puppy. After working with a previous photographer we were very disappointed with we were incredibly lucky to come across Sarah and David! Not only did they make room for us to get our pictures done on our schedule since we are not from Edmonton they were amazing to work with!! They were great with Misty and spent lots of time playing with her and making sure she was comfortable with them and the camera. They let her be a puppy which was what we wanted and captured so many incredible pictures that I found it totally impossible to even narrow down my favorites! Every new picture we seen we thought was our new favorite till the next one! They went above and beyond and totally exceeded any expectations we could have possibly had! They captured her personality perfectly and we have some incredible memories now to treasure forever. We will definitely be working with them again and can not wait till our next photo shoot.

I got the pleasure of having a shoot with SD Photography in early fall. I was very nervous as this was my first time working with a photographer! They made the experience a delight !! Our dogs LOVED them and we just had a great overall experience ! If we could rate SD I would give them 5 Stars !! We will surely be doing this again! Not only were they great to deal with but the photographs where absolutely beautiful!. Again we thank you for the beautiful photos !

I was a newbie to professional photography but wanted to capture some decent photos of my fur babies, and I guess the rest of family. Sarah and David were not only professional, but patient and accommodating. They gave thoughtful suggestions, not directions. It was a very casual fun day, that led to them capturing some amazing shots that are all worthy of publishing. We show the pictures off to everyone (including strangers!) and have easily convinced at least 2 other dog owners to use SD Photography; and we’ve only had the pictures 2 days!
Thanks Sarah and David, can’t wait for the next session!
