"Samantha is amazing in so many ways! She is extremely creative and energetic. You can tell she has a passion for what she does right when she walks in the room. Samantha did both our engagement and wedding photos and we are raving over them. I am so happy we chose Samantha to be our photographer on our big day and we will continue to recommend her to others!"

Samantha is absolutely amazing and beyond talented. Her energy throughout the day was phenomenal. My husband and I aren’t the kind who love being in front of the camera and especially not ones to kiss in front of a bunch of people. Samantha made us feel so so comfortable during those intimate shots, and they turned out amazing! She is also amazing with bridal parties (we had 20 of us), she is highly efficient with group photos as well. I highly recommend Samantha for your wedding, I promise you won’t regret it! She’s the best

"Samantha made our wedding day perfect. When you work with Samantha you know that you will have a photographer who is punctual, professional, organized and has great quality pictures. She went out of her way to capture my special request pictures and had the photos back super fast. I will be recommending Samantha to my friends and family and will always use her for all my future photoshoot needs. Thank you Samantha!
