I want to capture what makes your relationship special to YOU. To capture what really showcases who you are as a couple. I'm allllll about movement and you enjoying yourselves. One of my top goals is to make our time together as fun as possible and to not have you in stiff awkward poses. I'm here to play some music with you, frolic in fields, and laugh with you while you soak up some special moments with your person.
When you invest your time and trust in me, I invest everything I have into you, your experience and your memories. It’s not just the click of a button, it is a big responsibility to photograph all of your moments. From the fleeting moments of your spectacular wedding day, to the carefree moments of a date night at sunset with your boo (and me) laughing and having fun.

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!"
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!
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."
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!"
Your photography experience doesn't just include your moments I capture with my camera. It also includes my edits. I strive for timeless, true-to-life edits that still capture warmth and shadows. I like to say that my photo style is natural with some film-y vibes to it. I never want editing to take away from what is happening in the photos. YOU are the focus. Your feelings/emotions/environment are what I freeze in the photograph for you to be able to relive those moments later.

No worries ! I am never scared of shooting at a new place. I usually will arrive a little bit early just to get a feel for the space. But I also do research on your venue before-hand and am confident that I can find all the right places to capture your gorgeous photos in. It's all part of the process and I promise I got this :)
There are a lot of factors that go into this like, how big your wedding is, how big your bridal party or family is. What parts of the day are important to you to be captured (getting ready photos, a first look, a special exit etc.). Typically 8 hours hits the sweet spot of capturing all the good stuff of the day, however if you have special ceremonies/traditions planned or just want a more laid-back relaxed timeline, 10+ hours is the way to go!
Of course ! I love being able to capture you in your favorite place ! I'd love to discuss details for a custom quote.
Nope ! I don't send any un-edited/RAW files. Most of the magic happens during the editing process, so without that your photos are only halfway done!
Portrait sessions and engagements take about 2-3 weeks to deliver and weddings take about 8-12 weeks! I try my best to get your photos to you as fast as possible, BUT, I never want to sacrifice quality. I take care of your photos and want to ensure you have a beautiful product you can be joyous to look back on.
Absolutely ! Wedding albums are an incredible keepsake to commemorate your day. There's something special about having a physical copy of your photos look back on. If you are interested I have a whole guide dedicated to the different albums I offer and how the process works.
