About Arius Photography

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!

    The most perfect

    Hiring Sam was one of the absolute BEST decisions we made for our 5.15.21 wedding. She came highly recommended by our venue so she was on our list from the beginning (especially once we reviewed her stunning portfolio!), but within moments of meeting her via facetime we knew she was the photographer for us!

    We met Sam in person for our connection session a few months later and she immediately made us feel at ease - we were totally able to be ourselves with her due to her cool, calm, outgoing and fun personality! Throughout the weeks/months leading up to our wedding, Sam regularly checked in with us to firm up our day-of timeline and review our photo checklist with us, ensuring a seamless wedding day experience!

    Leading up to our wedding day, we were already amazed by Sam's skills, but we fell even more in love with her the day of!!! We cannot express just how much Sam helped us the second she arrived at our venue the day of our wedding. She instantly made the entire wedding party and our families feel comfortable, relaxed, + excited, and helped us stick to our timeline perfectly. She knew our venue SO well that she was able to lead us to all of the most beautiful spots on the property, chasing the light and getting the most amazing shots!

    Sam's gifts go far beyond her skills as a photographer -- it felt like she was our wedding planner too! She helped me in and out of my veil multiple times throughout the day, and was there helping me when I had a wardrobe malfunction minutes into the reception! Any time we'd hit a minor hiccup, the first thing folks would say was "should we ask Sam?? Where's Sam?!" She was a shoulder to lean on and a source of comfort and support for EVERYONE the entire time! It literally feels like there's nothing she can't do!

    After our wedding our guests could not stop raving about Sam and her second photographer Gabriel, and their ability to navigate and get photos during all parts of the wedding (including wrangling several large families for group shots AND being all over the dance floor getting photos of all our guests having fun!)

    Sam provided many teasers less than 24 hours after our wedding, which was BEYOND what we were expecting! The photos are stunning and there's so much more beyond the shots that makes her the best in the biz.

    BOOK SAM. Cannot recommend enough! We were SO lucky to have her.

    There is no one better

    Sam and her assistant Gabe made for such a smooth and memorable day. Sam is like a wedding coordinator herself with her knowledge of weddings, photos, venue, and relationships. I honestly think our wedding went so well partially because she was there. Im obsessed with every picture she took and all that she is in general!
