The decision of who you will trust to capture the most important day of your life is not an easy one. When meeting Sam, I felt like we had a great conversation that flowed naturally. He answered as many questions as I had and brought great examples of his work. He was professional and courteous from our first meeting up through our wedding day and even beyond! He is very timely with his responses which was important to me. We loved the photos from our engagement session on Block Island and while it felt like it was one of the hottest days of the summer, Sam just kept going with us! Our wedding photos were simply breathtaking and having to choose the ones for our album was not an easy feat as we loved them all. Sam was also very attentive to things I told him. Making sure to capture specific shots from my parents wedding day or just really cool poses from Pinterest was something he did not forget to do. He is a pleasure to work with and you will not be disappointed with your decision of picking Sam as the guy to capture this moment in your life! We can't wait to revive our wedding album but we already know it will be GREAT!!Sent on 10/20/2016

Sam was incredibly easy to work with. In general, his work is amazing. However, what we really found impressive is Sam's ability to jump into any given scenario, work with multiple personality types and how he was able to facilitate so many people in an effort to keep things moving in time to capture the best shots. You will not regret booking with Sam! We cannot wait to preview our photos but feel confident in leaving this review prior to doing so because we are so confident in Sam's abilities and experience. We witnessed it first hand! Thank you for everything, Sam!Sent on 07/07/2018
