I love being a Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer! There are so many styles out there and let me tell you, I'm not into cheesy wedding photography either. I believe what is real is beautiful. Organic and natural moments are what I'm drawn to. I have photographed countless Boho Brides and Barn Weddings, unique Field and Mountain weddings, vintage brides and tattooed grooms. I love all styles and types of weddings in Upstate NY, the Catskill Mountains and the Hudson Valley. Let's dream about your adventure together!

The absolute best
Where do I even start? I cannot say enough good things about Samantha, and before anyone continues with reading my review, go ahead and set up an appointment to meet with her (and then book her!!). My fiancé and I just finished taking our connection session photos with her and our hearts are literally bursting with love and appreciation for her and her work. When my fiancé and I were first looking for our wedding photographer we knew we wanted someone with a totally different look. Someone that was capturing real moments, someone who was creative, someone who was not just doing a job, but was sharing in the moment with you. After our first meeting with Samantha we knew she was the perfect fit. She is warm, kind, energetic, and clearly seriously cares about making you feel comfortable. Her eye for light and for capturing beautiful moments is something I’ve never seen before, especially in wedding photography. We booked our connection session shortly after meeting with her and every interaction leading up to the connection session was filled with excitement and kindness. My fiancé can be very anxious and nervous, and Samantha put him completely at ease from the start. Every smile, every laugh, every look was REAL and genuine and heartfelt. She doesn’t tell you to pose or where to look in a non-natural way, instead she has you whisper to your partner little things that will elicit genuine smiles and laughs, she makes little suggestions that bring you closer to your partner. I JUST CAN’T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS. You’re going to want Samantha to share your special day with you, and you’re going to want her to capture all the moments you would never even think of. With all that being said, book her!!! I am now just counting down the days to our wedding and to the magic she’ll create that day!Sent on 08/15/2019

Wait! STOP! Seriously, Just Read This...
Listen, if you folks are like us, and you were kind of well, lost on who to choose to give this absolutely massive responsibility to for photographing your wedding day please, just stop right now and read.
Sam June is nothing short of spectacular. My wife is a bit camera shy, which is totally fine so the one requirement that we had in our process in choosing our wedding photographer was that she (my wife) needed to feel comfortable with them. After reviewing Sam's work we understood that she wasn't your average run of the mill wedding photographers. First off, she loves what she does, and if you spend a day with her at a wedding you'll see that. She loves putting couples that are nervous and overwhelmed, calming them down and getting them in whatever THEIR element is.
So after we contact Sam, we set a Facetime call where we got to know each other and we absolutely hit it off. Fast forward to our wedding day, same arrives early with everything she needs and then some and was an absolute professional. She took time to understand family dynamics, and anything else that could factor into a huge day like a wedding day.
Were we nervous? Damn right we were, but not only is Sam a damn good photographer but she's an awesome person as well. If you're on the fence, please just give her a call, she's worth every penny and then some.

Best Photographer Ever
From the moment I saw Sam’s photos I knew I needed to work with her. After our first call, I was even more excited. She is extremely personable, funny, and makes you feel like you’re old friends which is an amazing gift. Our wedding day was flawless and she played a HUGE part in that, lending her knowledge to our timeline and using her impeccable eye to determine where we would be photographed. It was a blast having her a part of the “getting ready” experience, and I quite honestly forgot she was even photographing us. Our family and friends could not stop talking about how cool she is and how she fit right in. I immediately trusted her to direct us anywhere (inside a hungry sheep pen even!) and I am so glad I did. Our photos are STUNNING. There are so many incredible shots it’s almost overwhelming to figure out how to properly honor each one.Sent on 02/11/2020
Sam has an amazing eye for light and works with her surroundings as opposed to trying to make them something they’re not. Our photos are works of art and I’m trying to come up with more reasons to work with her !
