How did you get into photography?

As long as I (Sarah) can remember, my parents were handing me the camera for all of our family events, and I ended up shooting my first wedding at age 18. I took some photography classes in college and loved it and then began working for a few local studios. After Derek and I got married we had lots of friends getting engaged too, and wanting engagement photos, etc. so it all kind of just happened. Derek had taken a few classes in high school and college, and initially came along for moral support. We quickly realized that he had a talent as well, and that we made a pretty good team; so, 8 years ago Sarah Frenzel Photography was born. Eventually we changed our name, and transplanted our business from CA to TN. 130 weddings later, we operate our studio full time, and love every minute of it!

What do you love about photography?

For us, photography is a powerful storytelling tool. There are times to focus on the small details in life, as well as the big themes, and photography allows us to take one small slice of time, and recreate/remember that emotion again and again. We LOVE marriage and love seeing couples transition from singleness to oneness. We love to see 2 families with all of their uniqueness come together and celebrate with their loved ones. We love watching people pour out their emotions in a deep, compelling, and completing way.

Stacie & Michael Wedding-0280

What would you say is your photography style?

I feel like we have a pretty blended photography style; we try to find a healthy mix of the unobtrusiveness of editorial/photojournalist photography, the popularity of traditional posing, the softness of fine art photography, the perspective of architectural/abstract photography, and most importantly seeking out and capturing the moments/emotions that are unique to our clients. Each couple has a different dynamic and I think we are good at feeling out what style each couple lends towards, and emphasizing it throughout the day.

Brittany & Luke Wedding-0426-2

Do you shoot digital or film?

We both learned to shoot on film and still dabble with it, however, to best serve our clients and keep a busy workflow streamlined, we shoot most of our weddings and sessions in digital format.

Tell us why brides should choose you to capture their wedding day.

First and foremost, we are nice, easy going, and competent people who truly LOVE people and strive to show it in all we do! There are really 3 things that we are hired for: 1) We feel that we take great images and are able to show our clients as they truly are; we are proud of our portfolio and offer a consistent service from one wedding to the next. 2) Because of our years of experience we have a good read on people/situations, and are able to handle any curveballs that may come, while being a calming positive presence for our clients’ big day. 3) We operate our business with integrity- we’re honest, prepared, prompt, and communicative- and security- we’re insured, have backup equipment, protect your images, and have built our reputation on satisfied couples.

Tea or Coffee?

Favorite Social Media Outlet for Sharing Pictures?

Derek is more of a Facebook guy, but I love Instagram! I have a personal account where I get to just be a mom (@sarahfrenzel) that consists mostly of pictures of my kids. We also have a business account (@frenzelstudios) where you can catch the latest from our Weddings, Engagements, Culinary, and Commercial photography.

Aurora & RJ Wedding-0327

Favorite Movie Right Now?

Oh man… this is tough… I mean, there are my standard favs (The Holiday, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Ocean’s 11, Bourne Identity, Just Married, etc.), but lately Derek and I can’t stop quoting The Other Guys. “It’s not a good time right now Bob!!!”

Vendor Spotlight- Hello Trolley

intro

Trolley FAF

What made you go into the business of Hello Trolley? My sister found an article in a magazine about a trolley company up in Seattle. We thought that would be great for here in Nashville as you don’t see to many of them around. Wedding are such a blast to do, I mean lets face it, everyone is always in a good mood and ready to have fun!

What are all the different ways brides can use your products? We offer our service for any kind of group transportation. Some brides have used us to take them and the bridesmaids to have their hair and makeup done, move the wedding party from the church to the reception, shuttle guest, family and friend to rehearsal dinner. If she needs to move a group of people at one time, we can help her.

What options do you offer? We offer flat rate transfers, which is a pick up at one location and drop at another with no stops in between. We have rentals by the hour for shuttling guest, or driving the wedding party around town for pictures at various locations.

Some personal questions:

Mac or PC?

Has to be PC..

Tea or Coffee?

Coffee! Love me some Starbucks!

Favorite things to do in Nashville?

Love going to the Predator and Titans games and riding my Harley-Davidson!

Favorite Song Right Now?

Wow hard one cause I’m such a music lover and all kinds. Once the wedding party get on and they want to party my first song is usually “Turn Down for What”. Now if I am about to get on my Harley and ride, got to be “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC.

What made you go into the business of harp playing?

I started playing the harp when I was five years old. I fell in love with it immediately and knew I wanted a performing career from an early age. The harp is such a versatile instrument and I’m always looking for opportunities to promote it in new ways.

I’ve soloed at Carnegie Hall four separate times to playing at The White House with Beyoncé for the Second State Dinner.

Do you only play weddings?

I play everything from wedding ceremonies, receptions, bridal luncheons and brunches, to corporate and special events, galas, and benefits. I also have a private harp and piano teaching studio, do session work, backup pop artists such as Jay-Z, Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys and Enya, and perform regularly with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall.

unnamed

What are some of the options you offer?

In addition to solo harp, I can offer duos, trios, and even harp with DJ. The acoustic instrument is perfect for weddings and more intimate gatherings, however I also provide amplification for larger or more modern musical events.

I love to work individually with brides (and grooms!) to choose the perfect songs to reflect their personality and dream day. I offer options from Bach and Pachelbel to Stevie Wonder and Rihanna!

What are the normal types of weddings or events that you play?

Everything and anything! The harp can provide a traditional or more modern musical ambience for any wedding or event.
