• Welcome to Sara Manning Photography

    Hello & welcome! I am so happy you are here. I am a natural light photographer specializing in wedding & lifestyle portraiture. I hope you enjoy looking through my past and present images and I look forward to meeting you soon and creating some new memories of your own.
    ~ live. love. smile ~

Please forgive me for the fact that I am creating this post halfway through January 2015.
Twenty-fourteen was a fantastic year, both personally & professionally, but part of me feels like it went by SO quickly and therefore I am having a hard time adjusting to the fact that we are already well into a new year.
I once again had the privilege of meeting and working with so many fantastic people and I am extremely grateful for the new friendships that I have made and the undying support I have received.

THANK YOU for letting me share with you some of my favourites from the past year! And to those of you who were a part of my twenty-fourteen, thank you.
I am looking forward to a new year, new memories, and new friends.
I hope to see you there.

    SUCH TALENT SARA! So proud of you! :)

It was such an honour to wake up the other morning to see an email from an editor at Huffington Post letting me know that one of my photos had been selected and featured in their article ‘28 Striking Photos You Don’t Want To Miss‘.

My AMAZING bride, Michelle, had surprised me with this submission and I am beyond humbled by her kind words, everyone’s support, and the fact that my photograph is alongside 27 others taken by phenomenal artists.

I have always wanted to visit NYC, but I have especially always wanted to go to the Big Apple for New Year’s Eve.
This past holiday season that is exactly what my husband and I did.
Bucket list item — check!:)
It was A M A Z  I N G!!!!!

We were there for 6 full days and did/saw as much as we could. We ate a lot of delicious food and walked a TON exploring new neighbourhoods and parts of the city.

HIGHLIGHTS {It’s impossible for me to choose just one}

– the weather – we had blue sky almost every day and it rained only once.
– The Rockettes Christmas Spectacular inside Radio City Music Hall.
– NYE in Time Square – we attended a comedy show at Caroline’s on Broadway and were escorted outside to see the ball drop right before midnight; right in the heart of TS. It was SO surreal being there!
– every single second of every other day!!!

SURPRISES

– the NYE ball in Times Square is T I N Y! We weren’t the only ones standing in the middle of the street wondering where it was as several people asked us to point it out.
– everything from the Statue of Liberty to the skating rink at Rockefellar Center to the Bow Bridge in Central Park looks so big on T.V/in the movies. I was surprised at how small it all is in reality. But beautiful to see in real life nonetheless.
– I was having celebrity hallucinations the whole time I was there. We did however see one of my favourite former SNL actresses (Ana Gasteryer) at JFK in the security lineup heading home. I was bummed I couldn’t find her at any of the terminals once we passed through security. Trust me – I looked for her.;)

I loved the people, the diversity, the sights, the smells, the sounds, and the hustle & bustle. Absolutely everything about that city has created many fond memories for us!
We had the best time in New York and I cannot wait to go back

    Awesome shots Sara….I love travelling with you from my armchair.

    Lol! It’s tough ;) If you look at the photo of me all excited in Times Square – look at the black & white billboard of rapper Nas; to the left of that is Times Square posted vertically; to the left of that is a small blue/whitewashed screen.
    On top of that tiny screen is a tiny needle with the ball on top.
    It’s not visible in the photo unfortunately, but that’s where it’s located :)

    Loved all the photos! Brought back memories of some of the places Uncle Jim and I visited…although after seeing the sandwich from Katz’ he feels like he needs to go back to sample what he missed! Looks like you both had a terrific time. Thanks for giving us a peek at your holiday visit!
