We couldn’t have dreamt of a better experience with Sophie leading up to and on our wedding day - the whole process was easy and fun. Sophie was aligned with exactly what excites us visually while taking into account the wishes of our families. Sophie is so laid back yet professional. She gracefully kept us all on schedule and got all of the shots we were hoping for. We’re amazed by the raw emotion Sophie was able to capture. Her work doesn’t only evoke “wedding” - these are truly artistic photographs we’ll cherish forever. She’s your gal! More...

Sophie was more amazing than I could have imagined! I was living in MO but getting married in LA so we spoke on the phone months before even meeting in person. It felt like chatting with an old friend! She made me feel so comfortable on my wedding day! And of course, the pictures came out absolutely perfect! Sophie was by far the best investment of our wedding day! More...

I couldn't have been happier with our choice to have Sophie as our photographer for our wedding! She was so easy and professional to work with, from our first emails through to her delivery of our pictures. She did an amazing job of finding beautiful shots all through the wedding, and every time I look back at our pictures I get chills at how amazing she was able to capture not just the visuals but all the true feelings of the day. She's a true artist, but also a professional, which is such a fantastic combination. More...

Sophie is magic. From the moment you walk up to her, for the first time, you feel her warmth and security. You immediately feel confident in the big decision you just made to hire a photographer for the biggest day of your life. She effortlessly walks you through the details of planning photography for your big day , from how, where, when, who, how many photographers the whole shebang without ever making you feel overwhelmed. When the day arrives, she shows up early (bonus points), and she looks like she's ready for battle. With a camera for every intentional shot she creates. She glides through the crowd of your loved ones ,capturing the sweetest moments that you won't even remember until you see them. The gallery you receive is full of magical moments, between you and your partner, your loved ones, all of the hard work you put into creating your perfect day, creatively shot with expertise. You'll cry. You'll laugh. You'll feel the love in every single picture you receive from Sophie. I highly recommend Sophie Berard Photography for any occasion , especially if you are wanting to have a cool, professional and creative genius working with you. I promise, you won't be disappointed.

Choosing Sophie to photograph our wedding was one of the best wedding choices we made. She is incredible. We hadn't originally planned to have engagement photos done, but by chance Sophie was planning to be out near our home in the Pacific NW and we couldn't resist. At first meeting, we knew we had made the right choice and that was confirmed after spending 8 hours together road-tripping to a picturesque spot on the OR coast where she captured the most dreamy engagement photos. If you have a chance to do engagement shots with Sophie, do it! When Sophie arrived at our wedding months later it was like seeing an old friend. She is so kind, funny, and makes is so easy to forget the camera is there allowing her to capture authentic moments and emotions. The photos she took from the wedding are amazing, looking through the gallery immediately transported us back to the day. Nothing felt posed or forced, which was exactly what we wanted. I could go on for paragraphs, but long story short: if she's available, book her!! More...

Sophie was amazing! We felt so comfortable with her and she made our wedding day (and engagement picture day) so special. My family also loved her. We were so pleased with our pictures, too! They’re beautiful. I’ve already recommended her to so many people! Truly fantastic. More...

Best Photographer! We loved Sophie. My husband and I had a long engagement which meant we had the pick of our vendors. We didn't want our photos to feel "too wedding-y" if that makes any sense and wanted to find someone who could capture the emotions we felt on the day, rather than staged photography. When we found Sophie's page, I could have teared up at some of her work because you honestly just feel the emotions coming through her images. On top of her work being amazing, she was awesome to work with. Super professional, quick to respond and very detail oriented. Onsite she has a wonderful presence and is able to slip into the crowd or get everyones attention to get in line if needed. If you have the chance to book her, take it! She is awesome. More...

Hiring an amazing photographer for our wedding day was one of our top priorities. We wanted to make sure that we would be working with someone with whom we had a genuine connection and that could also capture all of the beautiful moments. Our initial "meeting" turned into a three hour hangout session in which we delved into art, love, weddings, and life in general. It was in that very first experience, that we knew Sophie had to be our photographer. We felt as if we had known her forever, one of those souls you really connect with. During our engagement session, Sophie created such a nurturing environment that allowed us to be our naturally silly selves, allowing her to organically capture our love. She brought that same grace under pressure on our wedding day. The adherence to schedule can be stressful, but Sophie effortlessly kept a warm, but firm grip on the timeline, always managing to be in the right place at the right time. After the wedding, we anxiously waited for our pictures to be sent and were blown away by the incredible moments she captured! The way she uses light to craft mood in her photographs is unparalleled in New Orleans. From the inanimate tablescapes, to the gentle sobs of the wedding party, and to the raucous dancing at the reception, every one of her photographs adds a chapter that contributes to the full story of the day.

I've watched my sweet friend Sophie blast off in her career these past few years so when Thomas and I got engaged it was a no brainer asking her to be a part of our special day. Sophie is an amazing photographer and she sees things in a way that you didn't even realize was possible. The way she captures the true authentic moments big and small are truly a work of art .She's warm and welcoming, so easy to be around and work with. I love how she goes about her cueing keeping things light and fun. She's very well organized and thinks of all the things pre and during to make sure everything runs smoothly and you get to enjoy every moment.I am so so SO happy with how our engagements and wedding photos turned out. Hands down couldn't have asked for a better photographer.Thank you Sophie ❤️ More...

Sophie is a most talented photographer. Professional and friendly, she is able to capture your special moments with her gift to see the perfect shot. As my daughter's wedding photographer, we were so pleased with the photographs Sophie provided us in a timely fashion. The only problem was deciding which to choose since the photos were all so perfect! More...

Helping my daughter plan her wedding was one of the most joyful times of my life. Sophie’s presence and direction throughout the process were surely a blessing. From the moment I met Sophie, I felt a sense of comfort and connection. She exuded a sense of calm confidence as she guided all of us through the wedding photo process. As parents of the bride, my husband and I really appreciated Sophie’s ability to present us with a plan and work with us on a schedule prior to the big day. We were totally blown away with Sophie’s ability to calmly guide all involved in the wedding in staying on schedule while totally enjoying the process. Sophie worked closely with Emily and Seth and had many wonderful and creative ideas to help capture their personalities in photo. He photos not only beautifully captured the moment in time, but also the joy, love, and emotion of Emily, Seth, and all of our family and friends. We are forever grateful for Sophie’s presence and guidance throughout the entire process of planning and celebrating. Her photographs are amazing! Sophie’s photos are a work of art, not only capturing the faces of loved ones, but also capturing the beautiful emotions and surroundings that define the sacredness of a wedding. More...

After seeing some of Sophie’s work, I decided to ditch the videographer idea and just work with her. I put all my trust in Sophie that day and she delivered. I seriously cannot stop looking at my photos. She captured the mood, the ambiance, the laughter and all the details. When you look at her work it feels like you are reliving the moments. In addition, she is professional, she listens, she’ll be your hype gal if you need encouragement, and I was very impressed with how quickly I got my photos (5 weeks for wedding and less for engagements). Can’t say enough great things about her work! More...

Sophie took both our engagement and wedding pictures and they portrayed the exact vision we had in mind! Working with Sophie was so much fun and nothing like your typical “pose and smile” photographer. She made us laugh and share stories to capture raw emotion in the pictures. Words can’t express how thankful we are that we have such beautiful pictures to look back on and remember a day that will always mean so much. More...

WOWW! I cherish these photos from the bottom of my heart, as well as the night my husband and I shared looking through them. Looking at our wedding photos brings us right back to that day. And all the emotions along with it - all the joy & love.Hiring Sophie was literally one of my favorite wedding decisions we made. She has an easy-going, fun personality and a gifted eye. She makes it her priority to know you, and incorporating that in her work. She made the day so much more chill & helped things run smoothly, all the while capturing all the special moments she knew meant the most to us. More...

Sophie and I met one time in New Orleans through mutual friends and I was instantly captivated by her presence and her artwork. We talked about painting and photography and I knew I had found a kindred spirit. We continued to follow eachother via instagram from afar and when I got engaged, I HAD to ask if she would be willing to travel to Houston to photograph our day because I respect her tremendously as an artist and hey, what a great way to collect her work! I am so grateful that she agreed. Sophie was graceful, professional, kind, calm, and assertive. During the planning, she was patient with our incessant (neurotic?) adjustments of the photo list and timeline. The bridal pictures she took were beautiful and powerful, because she herself knows that depth. During the wedding day, she used brilliant prompts to get us all to laugh sincerely and made the photo sessions a fun, earnest, and love filled experience. THEN, the pictures came soon after, and we were floored with the beautiful framing, lighting, and the painterly quality to her images. She did a great job capturing a mix of candids and organized group shots (especially with our giant families)! She was able to capture all of the significant and subtle moments throughout our wedding weekend with accuracy and tenderness and without ever compromising her artist eye. I cannot stop flipping through the beautiful images that we will cherish forever. She's a one woman wonder and I HIGHLY recommend Sophie. More...

"Sophie was terrific! Not only were her photos incredible but she was so much fun to work with. She is bubbly, sweet, very professional and sometimes invisible! You wouldn’t even realize she’s there capturing the moment! The pre-wedding photo shoots were so fun! She has a great eye for capturing creative shots, great lighting and making you feel comfortable the whole time. I told her I was very camera shy and she made me feel like a natural and would tell me how to pose or what to do if I froze up! Sophie is very laid back and easy going. When my friends were getting ready for a group shot no one was focusing and she was very good a being firm and proactive to get the picture done. To me it was so important to have the photographer be someone I truly liked outside of the business aspect because it is your special day with your closest friends and family. Having a connection with her made the day flow so much better. She understood exactly what I wanted and made it happen smoothly and made it fun! I highly recommend Sophie! She has you fill out a questionnaire before the wedding of exactly what you want her to capture and she does just that! She is detail oriented, organized and when your photos are ready she has a user friendly system. They are posted on a site she sends you with a password and a link for you to send them to friends and family. With digital copies and high resolution print copies. She makes the entire process seamless!" More...

Sophie captured our outdoor November wedding perfectly. She was professional, on time, personable and so helpful during the entire wedding process. Sophie not only took our wedding photos but took our engagement photos and my bridal photos as well. All three sets of photos went beyond my expectations. Sophie has such an artistic and creative eye and is able to take something in the moment and make it a beautiful lasting keepsake. Everyone who has seen our pictures loves them so much and are so impressed with the light and images captured. She was able to capture our personalities so well and create images that truly represent the real us. I’m so happy we chose her for capturing our important life events! More...

Couldn't be any more pleased with Sophie's work. Her easy disposition combined with her professionalism were the perfect fit for our big day. She's quick on her feet and has an amazing eye, ensuring that the best shots were found despite our time constraints. And the absolutely amazing photos, a perfect mix of candid and posed shots, are no less than individual works of art that will no doubt stir up the emotions from that joyous occasion for the rest of our days. You will not be disappointed in the decision to put your trust in Sophie's capable hands. More...

Wow. Wow. Wow. I can't even put into words how happy my husband and I are with Sophie. To say she is talented doesn't even begin to touch it. Our wedding pictures (and engagement pictures) are pure perfection. From the instant we met Sophie she put us at ease, and working with her was fun and comfortable. We may even force her to be our new best friend. She captured the feeling of our night perfectly. Looking at the photos literally transports you to that night. You can feel the love, happiness, and good times in every single photograph. She takes the most beautiful pictures. Check out her portfolio! Her work speaks for itself! PHENOMENAL More...

Sophie is so amazingly talented and you won't regret entrusting her with the most important moments of your life. Firstly, my wedding pictures came out like a Vanity Fair shoot. Her style is so editorial and she captured so many special moments throughout the day. But beyond just her talent, she's friendly and approachable, making it easy to feel natural in front of the camera. She's also a consummate professional in the midst of all sorts of wedding chaos. She spent hours ahead of the wedding talking me through the timeline, scoping out the venue for the best light, giving her feedback about what might work or not work, coordinating with my planner, asking me what shots I had to have -- the day went off without a hitch thanks in part to all her prep. One of the best wedding decisions I made -- would highly highly recommend!!! More...

Sophie photographed our rehearsal dinner and wedding. I couldn't have been happier with the photos. I explained ahead of time I didn't want too many posed shots, instead seeking more candids of everyone having fun and enjoying each other's company. Not only did she nail it, she created beautiful, magical photos that truly captured the feeling of joy my now husband and I felt that whole day. She was a pleasure to work with, and my guests all raved about how lovely she was. A great photographer and woman! More...

Sophie was a dream to work with for my 35mm maternity shoot. It was a home session, and while we had collaborated on a few ideas in advance, she really made the magic happen on the day of the shoot, seeing so much potential in all the nooks and crannies of our home. Could not be happier, will treasure these special photos for years to come! More...
