Samantha was an amazing photographer to work with. The things my husband and I valued most about our experience with Sam:

1. Professionalism - Sam responded to all my my questions quickly and in detail. Even better, she predicted a lot of what I would be concerned about, and gave me information before I even had to ask. For example, she wrote up a whole plan for my elopement day.
2. Going above and beyond - 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.
3. Personality - Sam is just super fun! This allowed my husband and I to totally relax, and we got great candid shots. She somehow managed to be a friend who we were celebrating with as well as our photographer! Her combination of small directions paired with allowing us to be ourselves gave us stellar photos where our personalities showed!
4. Thinking of everything - The day of our elopement Sam brought good tunes, water, snacks, and more to make sure our day was fun and went smoothly!

I can't wait to book another session with Sam!

I could barely even decide which photos to include in this review...THAT'S HOW AMAZING SAM IS AT WHAT SHE DOES!!! We chose Sam as both our engagement and wedding photographer and had the opportunity of working with her for about a year during the course of our engagement leading up to our wedding day. My fiancé and I were both a little nervous going into our engagement shoot, but Sam made it feel so natural and candid. She brought a speaker and played music, brought craft beer for us to enjoy and even champagne for us to pop! (Which made for a fun Save the Date photo for our younger crowd) My fiancé even left saying how much fun he had and couldn't wait to see the photos. Between then and our wedding day Sam was fantastic at communicating, helping create a timeline, recommending other vendors to work with, and checking in with us to make sure things were still a go with Covid. Any question or request I had, Sam would always respond within a day or two. She was truly my most reliable vendor in terms of communication from the very moment we hired her until our wedding photos were delivered! When I look at our wedding photos I see my husband and I, our love, our friends and family, and our guests having fun and enjoying the day. Every single picture feels like we're in the moment, and not a pose we were instructed to get in for a picture. This was so important to me for our photos, and was one of the main reasons I hired Sam. The compliments we have received on our photos have been non-stop! I am beyond happy and thankful I came across Sam's work and chose to work with her on the most important day of our lives. I CANNOT RECOMMEND SAM ENOUGH!!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET WORKING WITH HER, and I wish I could married all over again just to get more photos from her. We can't wait to get the chance to do another shoot with Sam in the future!! :)

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! 🖤

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 was perfect for our Madeline Island elopement! Our elopement was a bit more of a mini wedding and she stayed with us until we felt like we had every shot we could think of, meaning extra time she by no means needed to, and was great about getting us out of our shells! The prompts were great in getting natural laughs and smiles. The photos are stunning and capture the day beautifully. We’re so lucky to have found such a wonderful photographer, who puts the couple first and can really capture all the emotions we’re having on such a big day! We are so happy she was available to work with us!

Sam was such a dream to work with! The photos she took of our elopement were absolutely incredible. She captured the exact feel we were hoping for. Plus, not only was she maybe the most positive and upbeat person I have ever met (and prepared when weather threatens to be uncooperative!), she was so helpful in planning the details of our elopement from 500 miles away! Highly recommend Sam for your elopement adventure!

Sam was incredible! She was amazing the day of our wedding, she got all of the detail shots we needed and wanted. She made us feel very comfortable and got us to naturally smile by making us laugh with cute and funny prompts. We got sneak peaks back super fast! We couldn't wait for the final photos but when we got them we're overjoyed!! They are so beautiful and there are so many! Personally I have dreamed of my wedding day since I was a little girl and it exceeded my expectations. Sam was able to capture every moment in her pictures. Looking through them I travel back to that day and am so happy remembering every little detail. I would 1000% recommend Sam to do any of your photos, she has a sweet and bubbly personality that makes taking pictures super easy, and that is coming from a person who is the most awkward person ever taking pictures. I am happy to call her a friend of mine!

Thank you Sam for making the best day of our lives a dream come true.
