More about me >>

I’m a wedding photographer who is obsessed with love and capturing love stories. (and is also obsessed with her dogs). 

But more importantly, I want to be more than just another vendor on your big day. I want to truly get to know you, and to be able to capture you on a level that feels so easy + natural. I want to capture you in a way that you can revisit years later and still feel those same emotions frozen in the photograph. If you’re ready to run around fields, laugh and create photos that don't feel stiff and posed, I'm your girl.

Not in VA? no problem, I’m always down to travel to new places + capture new experiences.

hey there! I'm Sam

Wedding + Couples Photographer based in Northern Virginia

—Gabriella + Adam

She was responsive, professional and super flexible (especially with all of the COVID changes we had to make). She made our engagement session so much fun and felt like part of the family on the day of the wedding. The pictures turned out better than we could have ever expected! We are so impressed and happy with our final albums. You can tell Sam truly cares about her couples/ clients. You need to book her for your special moments! We will definitely be booking her again!"

"Sam was literally the best vendor we could have ever worked with for our wedding. 

—Esther + JOsh

She is very professional and responsive. When we downsized our wedding and considered postponing due to COVID, she was very flexible and reasonable. The week leading up to the wedding, we had some fears about weather, and she was great the whole time. The day of the wedding, she worked hard to get so many beautiful candid shots of precious moments, and got us some sneak peek shots the very next morning. Her work is gorgeous, and I cannot recommend her enough."

"Choosing Sam was one of the best choices Josh and I made for our wedding. 

—Yaz + Ben

We love our engagement and wedding photos a ton—the editing/lighting/colors were all so perfect. Sam makes you feel at ease with her infectious laugh and composed demeanor. Multiple people in our wedding party commented on how great Sam was and we consider ourselves lucky to have booked her. Go with Sam!"

"Sam was an amazing photographer!

—Tori + Kyle

She is so incredibly talented and created the most gorgeous elopement and engagement photos for us. We are having the hardest time choosing which photos to print in an album because we love them all. We have truly been blown away by her work and so have our family and friends. I’ve even had a couple people say our wedding photos are the most gorgeous they’ve seen! AND she got us an awesome selection of sneak peaks within 24hrs of both our elopement and engagement shoot.

Beyond being an amazing photographer, Sam is such a sweet and genuine person, and just a joy to be around. My husband hates few things more than taking photos and we were both totally dreading photo shoots (especially the engagement shoot). But Sam put us both completely at ease and made the process so much fun! Our wedding officiant even thought we had been friends with Sam for years because she’s just that personable. She was also extremely helpful, understanding, and flexible when we were faced with a series of changed plans due to COVID-19. She really is the best!

We are SO glad we decided to work with Sam and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding, elopement, and/or engagement photographer!

"Sam has been an absolute dream to work with!

For all the things my hands have held

the best by far

is you.
