About MarieSam Sanchez Photography

MarieSam Sanchez Photography is an award-winning husband and wife photography team based in Southern California with a passion for traveling to different corners of the earth to capture love, light and some of life's most precious moments.

Our style is best described as modern, romantic and timeless. We love making real connections with our couples and bringing out their personalities in our portraits. Our approach to photography strives to evoke feelings of genuine love and affection, and we pride ourselves on creating images that tell the story of your wedding day in the best way possible.

Over the past five years, we have had the privilege of documenting more than 100 engagement sessions and weddings both locally and in some of the best venues the world has to offer – Hawaii, Mexico and New York, just to name a few. After graduating with a communications degree and working as a news journalist for more than a decade, I transitioned to working as a full-time photographer and love being able to infuse my background as a storyteller into our photography. We want to inspire our clients with our photojournalistic style, vision and photos, and we hope that they appreciate the love, light and laughter in their lives even more when they see their images.

Whether you're in our area, across the country, or worlds away, it would be an honor for my husband and I to be a part of your special day!

    The Perfect Match

    MarieSam + Tommy are truly the best pair of photographers (and humans)! They photographed our engagement photos in July 2018 and our big wedding day right before the Christmas season chaos in December 2018. We were referred to them by Mark's side of the family-- two brothers (and a few friends from our church) used MarieSam + Tommy's services, so they were practically family and were familiar with our religious traditions and expectations.

    We knew right away when we got engaged in January 2018 who our photographers would be. MarieSam + Tommy are just the sweetest, funniest, most genuine and professional individuals to work with. They made all of our sessions feel SO comfortable! We clicked immediately (sharing the love of Lakers + USC, sorry Tommy, not UCLA LOL) and shared so many laughs that we knew they were the perfect fit! Since day one they have been so professional and timely about emails and questions, and they provided top-notch quality services throughout all of our sessions.

    Their session packages are awesome-- they offer so many options AND even cater to your unique needs if you need add-ons. Their online gallery is also pretty awesome where we were provided with a secure log-in to view AND download all of our high-quality photos (web-size + high resolution).. we love it so much! We also were able to send the links to our family members so they could view and download as well.

    On the days leading up to our sessions and the day-of's, MarieSam + Tommy were very professional and knew exactly the mood and feel we were going for in our photos. They even do walk-through's of our potential locations beforehand to really get the most out of the venues in their photos. Looking at our galleries that were re-touched to perfection (no filters needed for posting photos + printing photos), we and our families were so pleased and amazed by the high quality of our photos. They captured memorable candid moments that we wouldn't expect to be captured.. and we loved every single one of them!

    To summarize, MarieSam + Tommy are just the best photographers we could ever ask for. We highly recommend them to anyone who would like to capture their special occasions in high-quality photographs. We plan to continue using their services to document all our future milestones as our little family grows. We love them!

    Professional and personal, probably the two words that come to mind when my husband and I went from engaged to married. We knew MarieSam and Tommy from previous family weddings and loved their work. I mean the work speaks for itself. And the personalities that both of them bring to the table is nothing short of inviting and that close family oriented feel. By that we really mean they went beyond in terms of making us feel comfortable with what was about to go down. They made taking pictures feel fun and relaxed, like something we've been doing for a while (but we all know, not all of us are model-esque). There was another engagement shoot we did previously, and that did NOT give us that "happy" feeling. It was awkward kissing and "look at the cameras" type of feel. MarieSam and Tommy helped us feel welcome and I guess you could say "professional models" ;)

    Just want to point out an example before I close this out. There's a lot of tension on your big day and Tommy made my husband feel comforted that this was OUR day and no one would be able to take that from us. The first look is always so nerve racking and having them there, people that have done this and know the emotions know how to keep personalities calm and looking forward. The professional aspect comes into play when coordinating through the night with our different vendors. Our videographer was amazing and MarieSam did well to get their shots and accommodate the other trades. A simple meeting a week prior to the big day inevitably became the strict schedule that prevailed on the day. I love MarieSam and Tommy's work and if you see the work and love the work, why not?

    MarieSam Sanchez Photography were our favorite wedding vendors! After browsing and corresponding with a number of photography recommendations from a good friend and wedding coordinator at OneFourThree events, my husband/then fiancé and I felt MarieSam Sanchez Photography would execute our vision best. Compared to others, their photographs did not look overly "filtered." They offered such versatile looks, from modern, to whimsical, to glamourous. We were so happy they were available for our date!

    Pricing is really competetive and straight forward. From start to finish, communication was timely, genuine, and open. MarieSam was extra thorough in capturing the details of our romance off camera, which I feel really helped the process ON camera! By taking the time to get to know us in the months leading up to the wedding, we felt so comfortable when it came time to work with MarieSam and Tommy. They are as professional as they are creative, and they really give that extra attention to detail that every couple needs on their big day! They are a charming pair, with personalities and direction that kept us at ease all the way through. We couldn't be more thankful for their wonderful craftsmanship and staying true to our vision, our story.

    To call them my favorite photographers might be professional suicide, but I can honestly say I have never worked with a cooler, friendlier or more artistic team in all my years. Every one of their photo shoots looks like a magazine spread! That's why I chose them for my wedding! I couldn't be happier with every part of their process, from the site walk to the personalized thumb drive of the edited photos. Everything was done superbly and with true passion. Bonus: they're a riot too!
