minnesota elopement photographer. available worldwide.


intentional elopement experiences and photography for the romantic couples ready to create a wedding day that's all about adventure and connection.

Here's the deal: your dream wedding day doesn't have to mirror anyone else's. Your love story is as distinct as each snowflake that falls from the sky, so why not create a wedding day that mirrors that?

It can be overwhelming when you realize that the stars are the limit when it comes to your wedding day, but that's where I come in. Not only are you going to look back on your photos and think "OOOOO BISH" , but you're also going to get an expert that'll guide you on this journey.

What do you say? Are you ready to make your wedding day one of the best days of your lives?

I'm a big believer in making your dream wedding day come true, because you only get married to your soulmate once!! And if my hubby and I could go back and listen to our hearts, our wedding day would have looked COMPLETELY different. We wish we would have had someone in our corner, telling us it's okay to make our wedding day about us, no matter how weird and quirky it would be.

That's why I'm here. To be that elopement fairy godmother for you.

Oh, and maybe we can grab some coffee and vibe to some Sleep Token along the way ;)

"Sam was awesome to work with for our elopement! We booked with her in advance (over a year) and she continued to reach out to us throughout as we got closer to our date. The planning process was easy, her suggestions and expertise were great to have, and our pictures turned out so so good! She always made sure we got the pictures/poses we wanted and came us with ideas as well that we loved! So grateful to have picked Sam to be our elopement photographer and to have such wonderful photos to look back on forever to remember our day!"
