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!! :)

We had a friend refer us to Sam when we decided to get married and it was the best decision we made about our wedding. She was hands down the most amazing photographer! She was so sweet, helpful, responsive and just all around amazing. Same really helped make our day personal to us and captured our moments together so authentically. You would be making a mistake to book anyone else but Sam. I promise you she is what’s missing from your perfect wedding day. The photos she took turned out so beautiful and she edits them to perfectly. You need her as your photographer! I will be recommending her to every couple I know!

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.
