HI, I’M samantha

Creativity is my way of serving you during the biggest moments of your life. 

I'm a thrifter and could easily spend hours in antique stores looking for film cameras and other unique items. I've always had an affinity for the old and reliving memories. 

Years ago I was also given a box of old family photos dating back to the 1800's. It told the story of my family and I was obsessed with looking through all the old photos. This shoe box was my favorite gift and I hope to give others that same gift, tangible memories to pass down from generation to generation. Moments are fleeting, and I want you to enjoy them, soak them in and remember them forever in a tangible way. 

Chat soon, I can’t wait to hear all about your ideas and plans for your wedding day and how I can serve you.

"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you..."

Mr. Darcy

Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors. I've read all of her works, except one, and I always feel so inspired from her. Period pieces, the style and the language are so romantic and beautiful to me. Like Jane Austen's pen, my camera allows me to tell the story of lovers. 

I'm an introvert at heart, but I love to meet your guests at your wedding, hear their stories of how they know you, and document your loved ones. When you look back at your wedding gallery, you'll see friends, family and your love woven throughout it.  

Rain, hail or shine, I won’t miss a beat

After choosing to work with me, I’ll get to work learning your story and the perfect way to tell it through images. After the contract and retainer fee is signed, I’ll send over a short questionnaire along with a welcome guide with helpful information to consider when planning your wedding day. After photographing almost 30 weddings and attending countless others, I know what works and what doesn’t. I’ll work closely with you to create a wedding timeline that flows smoothly so you can truly enjoy your wedding day. 

I’ll arrive early enough to document you getting ready with your mother and close friends, popping champagne or just relaxing and listening to music! I’ll photograph your beautiful details, your dress and anything else you want me to photograph. You can think of me as a fly on the wall for all your special moments. When I’m quiet it means there’s a moment I don’t want to interfere with. To be honest, I’m not a “life of the party” type person. I’m a quieter person who seeks to be a calming presence for you as you have pre-wedding jitters. 

During your day, I’ll do a mix of styled shots and candid shots in order to truthfully tell the story of your wedding day. Once I leave the wedding, I upload the images to a hard drive as a back-up and begin the editing process! I’ll send you previews within 48 hours so that you can share them with friends and family as you wait for the rest of the gallery to arrive within 4-6 hours!

These are a few of my favorite things...

I’m a sucker for a good Hallmark Christmas movie, crime shows and thrifting! I also love spending time in the mountains, going to new places with my family and taking my boys on fun excursions. 

When I actually have time to read, I’m all about business books or novels by Jane Austen. I’ve read all of her works, except Northanger Abbey (for some reason I really can’t get into it). Art and creativity run in the family, my great grandfather was a German artist who made his way to the US. My grandmother was a painter and my mother did graphic design. You can say creativity is in my blood! 

Not only that, but traveling is a passion of mine. Before having kids I lived in Europe for a year and traveled all over the place. I’ve gone to about 20 countries and would love to go back! If you want to have an amazing experience around the world, let me join you! 

That’s a lil sneak peek into my life and a few of my favorite things! We all have stories to share, no matter who we are and that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories.

We truly can not thank Samatha enough for capturing our wedding day. She brought our vision to life! And less than 24hrs we received our sneak peak photos!! We were so thankful to have such an amazing photographer who truly loves her work. We would book her 1000 times more.
