Wedding At The Rust Manor House | Haley + Barry


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.

Last October I had the honor of photographing a wedding at The Rust Manor House for the sweetest couple ever! Haley and Barry are the type of people that just radiate good energy, and you can’t help but smile and laugh when you’re around them. That was definitely the vibe of the entire day, everyone could sense their joy and excitement. Every single photo I took showcases the incredible love they have for one another. The day was filled with so much laughter and excitement, there were so many memories made and I’m so glad I was able to capture every moment.

Their day was so incredibly gorgeous with amazing personal touches throughout (check out the hot Cheetos pics). The florals were absolutely stunning, leaning into the deep tones of fall, and we truly had a beautiful crisp day to celebrate. The ceremony took place in front of The Rust Manor House and it looked so elegant. From the first look, to the first kiss, and finally the first dance… everything felt so incredibly special and romantic. Haley and Barry had so many loved ones there to support and celebrate with them, and once we all got on the dance floor it was clear it was going to be a great night.

Overall, it was one of the best weddings ever, and such a magical day. I’m so glad they chose to have their wedding at The Rust Manor House in Leesburg, VA. It was the perfect venue to capture the romance between the two of them. Every part of the day was just so much fun and the joy between the couple was contagious. I loved getting to capture their infectious love. Can y’all get married every month so we can do it again?!

Congratulations to Haley and Barry!

Kind Words

” 5 starts simply is not enough for Sam- she is incredible beyond words and can truly capture genuine emotions in pictures! I can honestly say from the moment I booked with her, I never stressed, had a moment of doubt or regretted my decision. Finding this gem on Instagram was a true blessing. If I had to do my wedding over again, I would pick Sam again and again! Talented, professional, gets back to you, makes you feel 100000% comfortable, and she DELIVERS 👏🏻 ” -Danielle

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
