Treva & Bryan

From the start, Sam made us feel comfortable and we really have enjoyed working with her. Sam provides specific instruction while photographing you which makes it so much easier. She is so much fun to work with, and genuinely cares about the couples she works with. Overall, Sam went above and beyond all expectations we had, and we highly recommend her!!

"We truly felt lucky to have found Sam."

Sam is a pro and knows exactly what to do to capture all aspects of the wedding. Both of our families commented on how much they liked and appreciated our photographer and how she handled the extended family! And of course she delivered beautiful photos and memories for us to cherish! 

"From the start, Sam had a warm and inviting presence."

Kate & Camron

We did our engagement photos in Sedona and Flagstaff and drove all the way there with her. One of the best things about being in front of her camera is that she compliments you the entire time which makes it such an effortlessly fun time for the couple.

"It was like going on a trip with a friend we had known for years!"

Tara & Scott

She was so helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process and was there to offer advice and give input whenever I had a question. She worked so well with all of our family members and guests, too! All of my bridesmaids fell in love with her and her bubbly personality! The photographs were more perfect than I could have ever asked for! She captured every detail and moment perfectly, and I'm so thankful to have those photos to look back on for years to come! 

"Sam is someone I truly consider to be a friend."

Lisa & Jarret

She really cared about what I was wanting for that day and made it all happen. All my guests loved her and appreciated that she also captured them as well. Every single photo I loved and appreciated beyond words. The pictures were dreamy and something out of a fairy tale.

"Sam makes you feel apart of something special."
