Sean + Ivana | Carnegie Institute of Science Wedding


HEY - I'm Sam!

I'm a wedding photographer who is obsessed with love and capturing love stories. (and is also obsessed with her dogs).  If you’re ready to run around fields, laugh and create photos that don't feel stiff and posed, I'm your girl.

Sean + Ivana are such a carefree, fun-loving, awesome couple that I just loveeeedd to get to be part of their day. They were one of the first couple’s that trusted me with capturing their love when I moved here to Virginia. I am so honored to have been able to witness their love and to been part of such a fun and awesome celebration.
Their day was gorgeous from the beginning and the Carnegie Institute of Science was a gorgeous backdrop for their wedding day! I had so much fun capturing the wedding party in the library and reenacting Belle from Beauty and the Beast, because when you see a library wall and a ladder, what else would you do? Everyone was so fun to work with and had a blast creating fun and silly photos.

Sean and Ivana’s first look was the sweetest and Sean’s excitement over his STUNNING bride was unmatched. You could feel how excited they were to be together and to see each other dressed to the nines :). I loved their silliness, their goofiness and the love they shared just before they officially became husband and wife. Even Bohdi (their adorable pup) was part of their day, although not in person, see the wonderful bar napkins that have his handsome face on them !
Sean + Ivana had so many family and friends surrounding them to celebrate such a monumental day. The dance floor was packed and everyone was having an AMAZING time. The term celebrate just isn’t good enough because you could tell how happy everyone was to be there and to love on their favorite couple become Mr. and Mrs. Fagan! It was such a blessing to be part of such a fun night.

Thank you Sean + Ivana for allowing me to be part of your amazing, beautiful day. I hope y’all are having the best newly-wed year ever!!!

HEY - I'm sam!

I have learned that I love to capture the emotion and the connection between people. I love capturing love, capturing the giggles, the snuggles, the kisses. Snatching it all into a frozen frame for you to enjoy later. I couldn't be more thankful that I get to tell love stories of all kinds for my career. And I cannot wait to tell yours
