    Incredible!

    Samantha was absolutely fantastic! Her portfolio gave me great vibes to begin with, and she was a pro at capturing the vintage vibe we were looking for! She’s a true professional, beyond helpful, fantastic with communication, and great at making you feel at ease in front of the camera and providing direction. She is SO good! I cannot stop looking at our engagement and wedding photos. They’re truly priceless because they captured every moment I wanted to remember.

    Blown Away!

    When I say I cried when I got to see my wedding photos, they weren’t small tears. I was IN LOVE with how they turned out. So glad we went with Initial Impressions. Samantha was so helpful. She helped us plan our timeline for the day, had us all coordinated and ready to go. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. She definitely went above and beyond her duties.

    My Forever Go To

    We have now worked with Initial Impressions on 3 different occasions. Our engagement pics, elopement pics, and our big wedding day pics as well! Samantha and her partner are highly professional, will guide you to make the experience more comfortable if not used to pictures being taken, and will just capture the best of everything. Samantha was awesome with giving shot list guidance and suggestions as well as attending to wishes and changes on the spot! I cannot recommend her enough.
