First and most important - Love Is Love. So no matter who you love - I'm here to cheer you on!

Your wedding photography experience extends way beyond just a few photos on your big day. That's why it's so important to me to form great relationships with my couples so I can give them an amazing experience start to finish. I want you to feel comfortable in front of the camera, so that you can have romantic, fun, creative, true to you images! Get ready to have fun, love on each other, and get photos that not only perfectly showcase your love but also make you go WOW I can't believe that's us!  

MY PHILOSOPHY &
THE EXPERIENCE

LEGACY ALBUMS

The #1 product that I hope each of my wedding clients walks away with, is a custom designed album. They are incredibly gorgeous, and tells the story of your big day in a way nothing else can. These albums can be passed down from one generation to the next. Almost every couple has a gallery that lives online - and that's as far as it goes. But there is something so different about having an album full of photos.

All albums are a seamless layflat style printed on high quality thick white pages. This means there is no gap in between the pages. You can have full spread images with no worries about someones face being cut in half.

It can be so tempting to want to design your own album - but this can be very ambitious. Instead of wrestling with layouts, and complicated design software, let me do the work for you! I'll design an album for you, and you can easily make any image swaps. After that, all you'll have to decide is where to display your gorgeous album!

- Josie & aaron

Sam made our engagement photos/wedding day fun and relaxed! She was so organized through this process, that we didn’t have to worry about a thing! She kept us on track of where we needed to be, remembered what special moments we wanted captured and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. She was such a vital part of our day, and I can’t imagine our photographer being anyone else. Thank you Sam for your amazing work!

"I can’t imagine our photographer being anyone else."

- MELISSA & SAM

Samantha was very professional, personable and is absolutely amazing! She helped our wedding flow smoothly and captured everything better than we could have ever imagined. She made everyone feel comfortable and at times we didn’t even notice her sneaking pictures through out the night. Our engagement and wedding photos are absolutely breathtaking! She definitely goes above and beyond to meet all of your needs. Thank you so much Samantha!

Questions:

How can I get started and officially book?

I had a friend take our engagement photos. Is there a credit on the package?

How should I prepare for my engagement session?

Why should I choose you over other wedding photographers?

I'm never going to pressure anyone into booking. Why? Because this is your once-in-a-lifetime-day. I want you to have the perfect photographer for you. So if you don't connect with me after looking through my website - that's alright.
But if you feel like we are vibing let's chat! I'm organized, fun, and so incredibly passionate about what I do.

How should I prepare for my engagement session?

Created by potrace 1.15, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2017

Why should I choose you over other wedding photographers?

Sorry but no! The complimentary engagement session is used a way to get to know you before the big day and get you comfortable in front of my camera! You learn to become pros at all the poses before the big day and I learn what you like best . I've found that wedding days go so much smoother when we've done an engagement session first. 

Engagement sessions are so important!

INVESTMENT DETAILS

Contact SAM

$3600

Starting Investment:

- 9 Hours of Coverage ( Don't worry, I help plan timelines with my couples and this is almost always enough time. If not additional coverage can be added closer to the wedding.)

- A second photographer for five hours

- A complimentary engagement session & more 

What's Included:

Please know - timeline planning, vendor recommendations, and meeting up for dessert to talk about the wedding are always on the house!

Now that you've begun searching for a wedding photographer you have probably found that we all offer "packages", filled with various amounts of hours of coverage, and more. But maybe you aren't sure yet exactly how many hours of coverage you are going to need and exactly what you want. Which is why I designed one package that meets all of my couples needs for their big day because I found making the decision on amount of hours needed so far ahead to be a big source of stress for newlyweds to be! Please contact me for a custom quote for all elopements, vow renewals, and destination weddings. An online gallery, digital downloads, and print releases are always included.
