Meet your photographer

Hey there friend, I'm Sam!

A wedding and couple's photographer serving VA, DC, MD + beyond

I have always loved photography since I was young; and studying video production in college has only amplified that love into an outright passion. 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.


So, who is sam.

I'm a coffee/beer loving, goofy, 27 year old who married her high school sweetheart in 2017 (shout out to the best hubby ever!) and owns this awesome time machine, my camera. I was born and raised in the good ol’ Long Island, New York, and although I miss the breakfast bagel sandwiches (if you know you know) I am definitely loving life here in Northern Virginia. I'm way too addicted to snacking and you can almost always count on me having room for dessert (major sweet tooth problems). I love salt on my margaritas, cinnamon in my coffee and cheese on my french fries

If I sound like the person to get up close and personal with you, let's laugh together and create photos that don't feel stiff and posed  

Let's do this!


Family is super important to me

I have an amazing husband of over 3 years who is my biggest supporter. We have two of the cutest pups in the world and I love that I now live within 5-20 minutes of my immediate family. Holidays, dinners and hang-outs are my favorite with them.


Dogs are my fave.

I love all animals truly, but I am just a HUGE sucker for pups! I can't get enough of their snuggles + kisses.


Dessert is my love language.

I cannot resist a good chocolate cake or a brownie. Throw some vanilla ice cream on top and I am in heaven!!!! I definitely have way too large of a sweet tooth.


I'm Pro-Tattoo

I have 9 tattoos and am certainly obsessed. I will forewarn y’all, at least a half sleeve is on its way in the near future


More of my favorite things

My pups, my hubby, chocolate truffles, mugs, spending hours in Target, overpriced decor, Stella Artois, vanilla-scented candles, summertime, tattoos, the beach, Long Island breakfast food, Harry Potter, cheesy teen movies, Game of Thrones, wood burning fires.


Not in VA? No worries, I travel too!

I am a beach girl at heart so I always lovee getting to travel outside of NoVA too! Whether you're thinking of getting married on the beaches of Mexico, or a mountain top at Acadia National Park, I would love to capture your moments, where ever they may be.

Samantha fit right into my wedding, which I think was quite the feat considering it was a small, intimate, backyard wedding. But she seemed like a guest and I LOVED that. She captured all the moments I thought would be important and then some. She was so attentive leading up to the wedding, during the wedding itself, and afterwards when she sent a really lovely care package. I highly recommend her and think she and her services are truly the finishing touch for any wedding, big or small

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 !!!

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