Portraits

Sam and her team absolutely crushed it every step of the way. She’s a breeze to work with - beyond friendly and accommodating, not to mention her remarkable skill and vision behind the camera. From our first meeting, before we even got to take any pictures, we were happy with our choice. Our engagement session completely blew us away. Sam captured our love, our joy, and our goofiness better than we ever could have hoped, and she did it effortlessly. Neither of us ever feel especially comfortable in front of a camera, but that was a complete non-issue as Sam met our awkwardness with grace and caught every perfect moment despite us. Then the wedding day came and Sam showed up looking more even excited than some of our guests to be spending it with us! She and her team seamlessly integrated themselves into our whole day and were amazingly helpful at every moment. The first images came to us within a day and floored us all over again on our honeymoon; we nearly teared up at dinner. All in all, I can’t recommend Sam highly enough. 6 stars, 11/10, A+++"

Love Notes

Samantha was recommended to us by the venue we booked at and we are so happy we got her! She took our engagement photos, my boudoir photos, and of course our wedding day photos. All of which are AMAZING! Her editing style is very beautiful and she always provides us with tons of photos. Samantha is easy to work with and be comfortable around which makes getting good photos that much easier! She will give you her honest opinion and work through the awkward moments with you while turning them into fun times. She is uber responsive and super flexible- our engagement pictures even ended up being a spur of the moment beach day and they turned out in such a breathtaking way! At our wedding, Samantha kept all the photos running seamlessly and efficiently which was a feat because we got married on the day it ended up being crazy windy outside. Even with the wind we got great outdoor photos thanks to Samantha. She is also very knowledgeable about weddings and gave us so much advice and information that made such a big difference when we were deciding how to maneuver our big day! I never felt like I was a bother to her when I reached out with questions which says a lot about her personality and character in my opinion! We would 11/10 recommend Samantha to anyone looking for a photographer whether it be for a wedding, birthday, family, or anything in between! We plan on using her for all of our future Christmas photos/ family photos/ and whatever else may come up because she was just that good.

Love Notes

The most amazing photographer you could ask for!
Samantha was the best photographer we could’ve asked for! She has such a warm personality and a great sense of humor; she immediately made us feel super comfortable and made engagement and wedding pictures a breeze. She was great at posing and directing us so we could get the best pictures possible. Just as important, all the pictures she took were absolutely stunning. Samantha was super professional & always on schedule and punctual; she made sure to communicate everything so we knew what was going on. She returned our pictures faster than expected and kept me in the loop during her editing timeline. I can’t gush enough over how wonderful Samantha is and how fun and comfortable she was to work with, as well as how her beautiful her pictures are. Samantha is definitely a photographer I’ll be recommending to anyone who is looking!

"Samantha is amazing! She is a delight to work with. She was energetic, enthusiastic, and engaging. She was able to direct our silly groomsmen and control our sweet little flower babies. Most importantly Samantha communicates well. She promptly returns calls or texts and is easily accessible. She immediately sent us sneak peeks and discussed the editing process with us. She really captured our love and the joy on our wedding day. I hope that Samantha will continue to capture our special moments in the future."

"Samantha has such an amazing talent for bringing out the best moments in just a few shots. They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but I have to say, her photos speak VOLUMES! Not only about the people in her photos, but about her as a person. Her personality is electric when she's working and it definitely makes for some amazing shots! My son adored her. He didn't want her to leave!! I very highly recommend her to anyone and everyone who will listen!"
