how You'll Feel

FROM my couples

Sweet Words

Samantha has taken the most beautiful wedding photos we could've asked for! Our wedding day was freezing, cloudy, and barely drizzling most of the day, yet our pictures turned out beautifully. Samantha not only gave us gorgeous photos to keep, but was also one of our biggest cheerleaders throughout the day and the entire wedding process (and endured the miserable weather the day of!)... She emailed us with updates throughout the entire planning process and delivered our photos much more quickly than we could've even asked for... We are genuinely so blessed to have found her! We would recommend her to anyone searching for life event photography!

"Samantha not only gave us gorgeous photos, but was also one of our biggest cheerleaders"


Lucia & Brent

We recently worked with Samantha to photograph our 10 year vow renewal, and I am SO thankful we did!... Her communication is quick, she is a pleasure to be around, she gives great direction for posing without being overbearing, and she keeps in mind what is most flattering. Our photos were delivered quicker than we were expecting, and we LOVE THEM!! Like seriously floored by how beautiful they are... As a wedding planner I have worked with a TON of photographers over the past 10 years, so I have a lot to compare Samantha to and to be honest she is quite impressive. I am so hopeful that Samantha and I will be able to work together again in the very near future!!

Becky & Jerard

Samantha did an amazing job! She was so organized, so sweet, and so timely. Thank goodness she was because I did not stress at all the day of my wedding. She was friendly and made everyone laugh which made the pictures so genuine. She was my absolute FAVORITE vendor I picked, and I am so happy I did because I am already planning an anniversary photo shoot with her. She had our pictures back to us in record time and let me tell you they looked AMAZING! All of our friends and family were so impressed with the photographs. I am so happy I choose Samantha because I will treasure my wedding photos forever...

Taylor & Luis

Samantha did an amazing job!! We were thoroughly impressed! She has a very fun personality that made taking photos enjoyable. She has a very sweet spirit, is super professional, and beyond HELPFUL! The wedding day was extremely chaotic and Samantha stepped in to help by placing boutonnieres on all of the groomsmen and helping place ceremony florals. We're so glad we had her as our photographer. She goes above and beyond! EVERYONE loves our pictures...they can't stop talking about them!

"EVERYONE loves our pictures... they can't stop talking about them!"


Tavonna & Joseph

I cannot say enough great things about Samantha! Our engagement and wedding photos were stunning! She does an amazing job at staying natural and fun, not over-editing, and capturing the moment! She is super easy to work with, accommodating, genuine, trustworthy, dependable, sweet, and talented!... We do not consider ourselves photogenic or comfortable with being photographed, but you can’t tell at all in the photos and Samantha did a great job of making us feel comfortable during the sessions... We would 100% recommend her for any occasion, I’m so happy we found her! We will cherish our photos for years to come!

"We do not consider ourselves photogenic ...but you can’t tell at all in the photos!


Jessica & Cody

Booking Samantha for our wedding is one of the best decisions we made! From our initial meeting to receiving our photo galleries, she was such a fun and kind person to work with. She answered all my questions in the days leading up to our wedding promptly and was very communicative!... She has the personality where you feel comfortable with her quickly, which lead to some absolutely beautiful photos being captured. The quality of her work is amazing, and you can truly see the emotion she captured. We will treasure the photos she took for years to come. Thank you for everything, Samantha! We love and appreciate you so much!

"Booking Samantha for our wedding is one of the best decisions we made!"


Nicole & Craig

Samantha is the most amazing photographer and human being! She made the day so easy and picture taking painless and she really captured the happiness and love and joy from our wedding! She traveled all the way from Florida to be a part of our big day and I will never be able to thank her enough. She is super fun and easy to work with and I look forward to working with her again for future family photos! We love you Samantha! Thank you for making our day perfect!

"She really captured the happiness and love and joy from our wedding."


Sharon & Chad

We used Sam's services for both engagement and wedding pictures. The results we got were exactly what we hoped for, but the friendliness and cheerfulness of Sam made her stand out even more! She and her assistant blended right into the reception festivities, and even had some of our pictures displayed on a laptop, which really added to the excitement. Sam, your talent, kindness, and personality have made a life long impression on us. Thank you so much for your energy and capturing the memories of our special day!

"Sam, your talent, kindness, and personality have made a life long impression on us."


Lauren & John

I don't even have the words to describe how amazing Samantha is to work with. I had worked with her in a friends wedding and knew instantly I wanted her as my photographer when I got married one day ( I wasn't even engaged yet). When my now husband proposed she was one of my first calls. She is so easy and calming to work with. Always on time, very communicative and always eager to please. Our engagement photos and wedding photos were gorgeous. I will cherish them forever. Look no further for a photographer you have found her!!

"When my now husband proposed she was one of my first calls."


Marissa & John

From the consultation to the delivery of our wedding photos, Samantha made us feel at ease and confident she would capture the emotion of our wedding day. She is friendly and creative and it is obvious she loves what she does! Not only did she take our wedding photos but also took some beautiful engagement photos. She was with us the entire day of our wedding and kept everyone organized and on schedule. She even helped pin boutonnières and light sparklers! If you are looking for an amazing photographer for your special day who does beautiful work, I would definitely recommend Samantha!

"Samantha made us feel at ease and confident she would capture the emotion of our wedding day."


Rachel & Eric

Booking Sam was the best wedding decision we made! She captured the most beautiful images. 8 months later I still find myself in love with the pictures she took. Seriously, she made us feel so happy, confident, and amazing! I am a wedding photographer myself and I can’t express how happy I am to have found her! You will be so happy if you book her!!

"Booking Sam was the best wedding decision we made! She captured the most beautiful images."
