    Amazing value and wonderful work!!

    Samantha does a FANTASTIC job! Not only is she super creative with different and fun ideas, she somehow always captures photos from the perfect angles. She made my wedding day a memorable one and was able to capture the ceremony perfectly without being blatantly in the aisle or in the way. No one even knew she was there!! At the end of my day I had photos that I will cherish forever, and her editing skills are top notch! I use her for all of my family’s photo needs.
    Highly highly recommend!!!
