You're searching for someone that you connect with and who you can imagine spending the most intimate moments of your wedding day with, such as your mom shedding a tear as she zips you into your dress, the gentle hug from your dad as he’s giving you away at the altar, the private moment as you read the personal vows you wrote to one another.

These are the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together, the ones that deserve to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

Photography has made me appreciate the beauty in life. I truly believe every story deserves to be told. Whether it's getting engaged, marrying your best friend, building a family or chasing your dream. I’ll be there capturing every moment for you to cherish for generations. 

For couples who believe their wedding day is a story waiting to be told.

I value taking the time to get to know and build a connection with you and your families so that I can tell one of the best stories of your lives.

If you love those candid, artistic, emotion-filled moments then you’ve found your girl. 

I’m Samantha, lover of a good glass of wine and a good book while curled up on the couch with a comfy blanket.

Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. Even with its ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that!

Each moment of your wedding day is truly fleeting. When it’s all said and done the emotions documented in your photos are all you’ll have to relive those moments. I believe you deserve images that capture how your wedding day felt - so you can relive the magic again and again. 

Anticipating emotion-filled moments.

Over the years I’ve found that building a strong connection with my couples and their families allows them to be present in the moments of their wedding day in a way that leads to more organic emotions and moments 

Creating Connections.

It wasn’t until I had my daughter that I started to value the perfectly imperfect moments. At the end of the day, some of those moments you can’t physically relive. It’s moments like these that mean the world to me and that I aspire to document for my couples. 


Your wedding day should be a reflection of who you truly are from each detail of your design to the way you interact as a couple. Every moment of your wedding leads to a piece of how your story unfolds.

The Values behind everything we do...

Your wedding day is a story waiting to be told. View emotion-filled moments I've had the honor of documenting for other couples in my portfolio.
