I'm Sam, and I'm living an intentional, inclusive life that is full of joy. I capture the magical moments you never want to forget. 

More than ten years ago, I photographed my first wedding. I was only 16, but that first wedding was the start of more than 100 that have come since. Weddings have been the source of countless joys and so many dear friendships in my life. My own wedding was in 2018. Life leading up to our wedding was filled with beautiful anticipation of a life together. Life after the wedding has been the best journey I've ever been on. 


I believe in celebrating the magic of when you are your truest self

Wedding days are filled with countless magical moments, but my absolute favorites are the ones shared with your chosen family. When you receive your gallery, get ready to be flooded with those moments that will warm your heart. You'll get to see your family seated in the first row, beaming with joy as they witness your union. And let's not forget about the cocktail hour – that's when the party truly gets going! I'll be there to capture candid shots of your amazing friends laughing, toasting, and having an absolute blast. From goofy poses to smiling at the camera, I'll freeze-frame those genuine connections and contagious smiles. You can count on me to ensure your gallery becomes a precious time capsule., allowing you to always remember the incredible individuals who came together to celebrate your love on your special day!

Ryder is our first born, a true pandemic puppy. Riley came into our lives two years later! Sometimes they're besties and sometimes they need their own space. As an introvert - I definitely relate.

From the moment I reached out to her I knew she was the photographer for me, she is so sweet and funny. She is quick to respond and always there when you have questions. If you are looking for a photographer who will give it her all, treat you like family and produce absolutely perfect photos, you are in the right hands with Sam.

"Where do I even begin to say how grateful I am that I found Sam??"

- Michaela, Bride

She made us feel comfortable from the very start and our engagement shoot was filled with fun and laughter. Sam's lovely personality combined with her fabulous photography skills made us feel confident in choosing her to capture our special day. 

"The entire experience with Sam was simply outstanding"
