About Me - Sarah Carter

Hi! I'm Sarah.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my work.....

I specialize in wedding and portrait photography.... and baking pavlovas for friends. As a Suffolk Wedding Photographer, my approach is to tell a story.  But I also love to beautifully capture the details of the day. What I love nothing more however, is to capture the emotion for you to reminisce in years to come and relive those emotions, time and time again. I just love weddings and everything about them.  It's an honour to share such a special time with families and seeing a couple grow into a family, where I can help them again with my other love, portraits. People are so interesting and I am a people person.  I love nothing taking a stroll through our lovely local surroundings and capturing couples, families and children through my eyes.

Photography had me at hello and I can remember my passion starting at Primary school, when I often had my camera at break, taking photos of friends in the school playground and having them developed as soon I received my pocket money. Upon leaving school, at the time, it was not really a woman's career option, so I became an office manager, personal assistant and an events planner. Even though my passion was always with me, It wasn't until around 2007 when my mum had passed and I was pregnant with my daughter that I realised just how vital capturing all of those special moments in life can be, as they come and go so quickly.  So I made the decision to revisit my first love once again and have that camera in my hand for work. As a result, I get to do what I love every day!

I am a mother of two wonderful children and I have a super loving and supportive husband. I love dogs (including our own crazy Cocker Spaniel) I hate shoes, love laughing, and live for my family and friends. After 10 years living in and around London, I am proud to call Lowestoft home once again. Inspired by all things coastal, I seek to incorporate my love of the outdoors into all my portraits.

The best things in life are the people you love, the places you have seen, and the memories made along the way.  

Much love, and wishing you all your own 'Happily Ever After'

A few 'Raves'

Sarah came down to London to do our wedding on 29th October and she was fantastic from beginning to end. She got involved with the craziness at my mums and helped out with everyone and everything whilst taking photos both posed and natural! She put me at so much ease and thankfully was there to help and direct my mum and sister in getting me into my dress! She made sure she took all the photos we asked for and so many more and everyone commented to us how good she was and so friendly with it. Have seen a few pics and we can't wait to see the rest as if they're anything to go by they will be amazing. Can't recommend Sarah highly enough, thanks again, we can't wait to see the pictures as there were some stunning shots she was taking xxx


Sarah shot our wedding on 24th September 2016, and i just wanted to say what a fantastic photographer she is!!! We received our pictures the other week, and both myself and Ben are absolutely over the moon with them! The group shots are stunning, and the candid pictures of our guests are absolutely fantastic! She made us feel so at ease, and half the time you don't even realise that she is there snapping away! I would really recommend "Happily Ever After Photography" to everyone as the quality of her work is stunning. Thank you ever so much again Sarah! Mr and Mrs Slaymaker


Sarah is an amazing asset to any wedding- not only is she a fabulous photographer with the patience of a Saint, she will do anything else to help on the day including some ironing for me!!! She made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera and just went with the flow of natural pictures which is what we wanted!! Thank you!!! Xx


Sarah was absolutely amazing. Made us feel so at ease all day and joined in with the giggles throughout the day I'm so glad I went with my heart and chose Sarah to share our special day. From the moment I saw our engagement shoot I realised how she truly captures special moments. If you want a magical day and memories that you can look at through the years happily ever after is who I'd pick time and time again. I'm hoping if she'll have us again and capture many more special memory's for us. Thankyou so much Sarah xxx


Oh my goodness! Our photos arrived yesterday and we are so pleased with them. Sarah was not only professional, helpful, funny and generally just a pot of gorgeousness on our wedding day, she also managed to make 2 not very photogenic people look fab! Our pics are beautiful. If anyone is considering having her as their photographer, I would say yes do it - you will not be disappointed. Thank you Sarah my lovely, you're amazing :-) xx


"Sarah is a fantastic photographer, her photos are so lovely, natural and fun. From the moment she came to meet us it was like chatting to a good friend you had known for years. We were so glad we chose her for our wedding and look forward to having an opportunity to use her again in the future xx"


"I cannot stop looking at our amazing wedding photos!! Sarah is a stunning photographer and a wonderful person who makes sure that every part of your special occasion is captured! She certainly has for our special day! I would not hesitate in recommending Sarah and I hope to be able to have her take many more photos of our special occasions in the future :-) xxx"


"Just wanted to leave a review for Sarah to let others know how lovely she is as a person, and professional in her work. Sarah previously snapped our pre wedding shoot which was fantastic then recently captured our wedding day too! We have now seen our beautiful photo's and we are overjoyed with them! They are all absolutley amazing and just perfect.. I would recommend Sarah@ Happilyeverafter to all those who are looking for someone to capture their special moments for any occasion! Sarah offers a great friendly and professional service. Thank you Sarah we are so grateful and glad you were there to capture our special memories which we can treasure forever!! "


"I cannot recommend Sarah high enough, not only does she take fantastic pictures, she treats you as a friend not a client instantly putting you at ease & making your session fun & with 3 children thats just what we needed!! She puts herself out & goes that extra mile to ensure you get exactly what you want from you photoshoot. We have some gorgeous family photos & lovely pictures from our daughters first birthday that we will treasure & no doubt will soon have more to add to our collection as we meet up with Sarah again :-) x x"


"I highly recommend Sarah for any photography that you will ever need! she done bump photos of me and my family, they were lovely photos, she is very friendly and made us all feel very comfortable during the shoot. She was also present for a very special moment in my life, the birth of my daughter!! She captured all of the special moments in a very professional manner that i barely new she was there! and all of the photos are very tasteful too! Now the photos I will treasure forever :) I will definitely be using her again in future, you won't be disappointed :)"
