Autoshop D.C. Wedding | Abby + Alden


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.

Recently I had the amazing honor of photographing this Autoshop D.C. wedding for Abby and Alden! This venue is so iconic and gorgeous, I was so excited when I found out the location they chose. These two are just the sweetest souls ever, they are so perfect for each other. Every time they locked eyes it was a like a scene in a movie, everyone could see the love they have for each other. They really set the atmosphere with their incredible energy and excitement. As soon as I got there I knew it was going to be a magical day.

I started by capturing some beautiful detail shots of her shoes, jewelry, dress, and getting ready with her bridesmaids. They were all so excited and happy to be there, it was such a fun morning! I also popped over to the guy’s room and snapped pictures of the groom and groomsmen getting ready and drinking some whiskey. The couple chose to do a first look and it was incredibly beautiful and romantic. Finally, it was time for the ceremony. As the father of the bride walked Abby down the aisle, both her and Alden had tears in their eyes. The ceremony was simply perfect, all the way from the decorations to the vows, it was magic.

Finally, it was time to party! But before the reception officially began, I snuck off with the newlyweds to capture some couple portraits. As we did that, the guests had some drinks up at the rooftop bar overlooking the city. We joined the rest of the party a little while later, and the couple made their grand entrance as Mr. and Mrs. Leclair! The rest of the night was filled with lots of laughter, love, and dancing of course! I’m so honored that Alden and Abby trusted me to capture their Autoshop D.C. wedding, and I hope they cherish these photos for a lifetime!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Leclair!

” There are not enough good things I can say in a review to express just how amazing Sam is. First off, her work is STUNNING. More importantly, she takes initiative and get things done ! She was extremely helpful with non-photography related things (holding bouquets, fixing my train or my hair, etc.) and keeping me and my large bridal party on time ! Do not hesitate to book with her ! She is such a help before, during and after the process !!! Thank you, thank you, thank you !!! ” -Olivia + Danny

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
