Then you're in the right place!! You DESERVE a wedding day experience full of whatever the frick-frack you want! Your relationship is all about you and your partner - why shouldn't your wedding day be the same way? 

So how about we ditch those traditional expectations and create a unique elopement experience that focuses on the connection you share with your partner and the things you love?

it's time to take back your wedding day and make it into the adventure you want.

Hey, I'm Sam (she/her) and I'm so thrilled that you are here and ready to make the big decision to create your own wedding day experience! The truth is: you can hire just about any photographer to take pretty photos... but... not every photographer can tell your story the way it deserves to be told or make your elopement day experience even better than what you could dream of. 

That's where I come in! I'm not only here to capture some beautiful photos of you and your partner, but I'm here to take the stress off your shoulders,  to capture every emotion and feeling on your elopement day, and to give you the best elopement day experience possible! 


HEY HEY!! I'm Sam, your elopement photographer + experience creator!

your love story is irreplaceable, just like your photos.

When you revisit your wedding photos, you don't want to see the perfectly posed arms and fake smiles. 

You want to see the dimples your partner gives you when you make them laugh. You want to remember what it felt like when your partner saw you in your wedding attire for the very first time. You want to remember how much fun you had while getting married.

Most importantly, you want to remember how completely head-over-heels in love you and were partner were on your wedding day and how much that love has grown every day since.

"Our photoshoot with Samantha was absolutely incredible. Samantha is so talented, sweet, and professional. We were nervous going into it because we have never done anything like it before, but Samatha made us feel comfortable and brought excitement into the shoot. We had so much fun, and it is one of our favorite memories we have together. The pictures we received were more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. She got all aspects of our relationship from our funny side to our head over heels for each other side. She truly captured us. Samantha gave us a wonderful experience that we will never forget. I can’t help but smile every time I look at our pictures. Thank you so much Samantha!"
