"Sam was able to meet my husband and I the day before our planned elopement to go over our locations and just get to know us. This allowed us to feel super comfortable the day of the event. She scouted out the locations we had in mind, and suggested another close by location that was gorgeous where we got some of my favorite shots."

"She Predicted My Concerns!"

"Don’t even think about hesitating to book Sam as your photographer! She is AMAZING. Highly communicative, open to adventures big or small, and just a joy to be around. She’s also pretty bomb at taking amazing photos. We felt comfortable the entire time and got so many great pictures. She also had a ton of amazing vendors to recommend, all of whom were equally fantastic to work with. This is definitely a run, do not walk situation."

"Sam is a joy to be around!"

"The value she provides far exceeds the modest price she charges. We could not be happier with her work! Through the past year, Samantha has been professional, understanding, and has become a real friend. We couldn't recommend Samantha more!"

"Sam Has Become a Real Friend!" 

"Samantha 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."
