I have been photographing couples and weddings for a little over four years and I know that it sounds super cliche, but capturing love is my absolute jam! I love showing the authentic side of people through my pictures. My main goal is to create an environment that allows you and your love to be yourselves and have so much fun that you will almost forget I'm there!

​Being a part of one of the most important days on someone's life makes me feel so freaking honored! Like I get to witness real life love stories as a job and it just makes my heart happy!



 

HI THERE, I'M SAM.
NY & DESTINATION PHOTOGRAPHER

I love HIKING, COWBOY CAMPING, cozy nights in, and NIGHTS OUT WITH MY FRIENDS →

"....We couldn’t have been anymore pleased with Sam's work and the beautiful photos that we will cherish forever. Sam was so sweet and attentive to everything on not only our special day but the months leading up. If you want someone who takes amazing photos, is very responsive, and is your own personal hype women, then I would highly suggest Sam! She even sent us a little sneak peak a day after the wedding so we could share out to our family and friends. Thank you so so much for everything and we are so thankful you were apart of our wedding day and captured the love me and my husband share. You’re the best!!!!!!

"We cannot say enough how AMAZING Sam was! From our engagement session to our wedding, she has been amazing since day one. She was super organized & on top of everything, super sweet & patient, & overall was just the best to work with. Our photos are stunning and we love them so much. We are so happy we booked with her to photograph our special day & she truly captured the joy we felt in each photo..."

"Sam did such an amazing job capturing our wedding day!! She was willing to travel all the way across the state to the Adirondacks for our wedding and was super helpful throughout the process. We are so in love with our pictures from that day and highly recommend Sam to capture all of the special moments on your wedding day!!"
