BOOKED

"We had the pleasure of working with Sam for our engagement and wedding photos. Sam is such a talented artist, her photos are everything we could’ve asked for, and we feel lucky to have had opportunity to have her as our photographer! Professional, easy to work with, timely, and provides a beautiful product worth every penny."

Mackenzie and Dave

"I don’t even know where to begin. If you need a wedding photographer Sam is your girl! She was absolutely amazing from the engagement shoot to the day of the wedding. Sam is so talented, kind, patient, and just the loveliest human! She captured our day so beautifully and the photos were everything we could have hoped for."

Emilie and Quarry

"Sam is an absolute gem! From the very beginning she was friendly, helpful, and a pleasure to work with. Going into our engagement shoot we were nervous and unsure how to pose but she made us feel so comfortable. When the big day came around she was on top of things and had such a positive attitude. The whole wedding party loved her! I highly recommend her to capture your beautiful memories."

MY APPROACH

AUTHENTIC   \    INTENTIONAL   \    PERSONAL

the experience includes...

PRE-WEDDING CONSULTATION + PLANNING

PERSONALIZED PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE

PROFESSIONALLY EDITED ONLINE GALLERY

FULL IMAGE OWNERSHIP + PRINTING RIGHTS

If you are looking for a photographer who truly wants to make your vision come true, document the day as it was, and who is going to be your new wedding bestie- then look no further! I am so thankful you are here. I want you to not only feel comfortable, but have the best time during our time together! 

If you love the final photos I deliver but don’t love the experience behind them, I haven’t done my job! I prioritize communication, connection, and clear expectations throughout the process, so you’ll know exactly what to expect each step of the way, freeing you up to focus on the most important moments of your big day instead of the logistics.

INQUIRE ABOUT YOUR DATE

"What I like about photography is that they capture a moment that's gone forever. Impossible to reproduce."

- Karl Lagerfeld

From the booking process to the photo delivery, my client experience is easy, seamless, and streamlined.

What makes me different

FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS

All my couples get my Wedding Planning Guide that includes all the tips and tricks to make your wedding photography experience the best ever! It includes all my recommended vendors, timeline options, rainy wedding tips, engagement and bridal session tips, details checklist, family photo checklist, how to have an unplugged wedding, first look and aisle reveal tips, and so much more! 

I’m not really into editing trends, which is why all your photos are edited in a timeless editing style so that they never go out of style. You'll be able to look at your photos 40 years from now and they will look true to the day.

Almost every review I receive includes a bit about my personality, how I interact with friends and family, and/or how I carry myself throughout the day! I'm bubbly, outgoing, personable, super kind to all, and can handle the pressures that weddings can sometimes bring!

MY PERSONALITY

Frequently Asked Questions

YAY! The first step is to inquire with information about your wedding/elopement date and location. If I am available, I will send you detailed pricing information and get more details about your vision and plan. We can do this over email, in-person or video chat! If you decide you would like to move forward with booking, I will send a contract for you to review and sign. Once the contract is signed and non-refundable retainer is paid, you are good to go! 

My style is natural and true to color. I specialize in capturing candid moments and telling the story of your day as it unfolds. With a focus on authentic moments, we will utilize a series of prompts and create space for genuine interactions.

Turnaround time for regular sessions is 2-3 weeks and wedding/elopements is 6-8 weeks. This time may vary depending on time of year or busy season. For weddings and elopemetns, a 50+ sneak peak is sent out within 72 hours.

As you probably know, each photographer has a specific editing style that is true to them. Because of this, I do not alter or change my editing style. I consider myself a true to color photographer, so if you are looking for light & airy or someone more moody, I can definitely provide recommendations of amazing photographers in those categories! You can absolutely send me any inspiration or specific posing that you like. I will save the last few minutes of our session to capture any posing that you wanted that I may not have gotten. 

My favorite question- YES ABSOLUTELY!!! I find that I am happiest when I'm exploring different cities, states and countries. I am available worldwide and I would be honored to capture your love anywhere. Travel fees may vary depending on location, if I am driving or flying and costs of hotel accommodations and rentals in the area. When you inquire with your specific date and location, I can give you a more exact estimate. I do have a list of bucket-list locations to shoot at- and these locations do have discounted packages and travel fees.
