Amazing Experience with Sam!

My partner and I are are so grateful to have found Sam. We worked with them both for our first elopement and our bigger wedding a year and a half later. Every part of working with Sam was so easy, and we felt especially grateful to be able to work with a queer photographer who understood the ways in which we wanted to capture our special day in non traditional ways. The photos came out beautifully and we're so excited to have such wonderful images of both events. Thanks Sam!

Stunning Results!

We were initially put in touch with Sam for our consultation. Sam was attentive and flexible leaving a good feeling in our gut to move forward with them for our NYE wedding.

Upon signing our contract, Sam put us in touch with their associate Fennel. We took a couple meetings to walk them both through our plans for the day of our wedding and they provided thoughtful feedback that made our schedule even better. They both know their stuff and were intent on making our day run smoothly and were determined to get as much content shot as we could given our budget and time constraints.

When the day of arrived Fennel flew around barely noticeable. They have a remarkable skill of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera and not feeling like a camera is in your face during our more intimate moments. They were able to provide quick on your feet decisions to make for the best shot and we were feeling confident we got what we wanted from the shoot by the end of the day.

Then the photos arrived. We're screaming. We're crying. We're throwing up. To say we are overjoyed is a massive understatement. These capture the day in such a vibrant, beautiful way we can almost hear them. Perfection. We thank Sam and Fennel from the bottom of our heart for immortalizing this day for us. We are overjoyed.

Would Hire Sam 100 Times!

I can't adequately express in words how talented Sam is. They have an amazing eye for blending art and reality. My concern for wedding photography was that it would be cheesy and overdone. Sam does not know how to take a bad photo. Every single one of our wedding pictures capture life in motion and beauty. I cannot recommend Sam enough.
