“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.”
