Thanks for taking a minute.. A little about me

I am an outdoor adventurer; if I could spend my life shooting wild river and mountain expeditions, and still come home to be with my wife and daughter at night, I would.
I don’t have that one totally figured out yet, however, shooting weddings has more in common with that than you might realize.

Weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime event.. incredible backdrops, people looking their best, emotions flowing, colors bright… a peak life experience!
Weddings are an adventure!
The fast paced unpredictable nature of shooting weddings keep me engaged and creative. Everywhere I look there is a scene, or a moment that I have to capture!

Sam Hamilton was incredible!

Sam was AMAZING! Our wedding was planned from 1000+miles away, but Sam was incredible in the whole process. Our wedding happened to be in Tahoe during the second worst snow storm of the year- he was on time, and ready to face the elements to get the right shot. Sam captured so many incredible candid moments, and even when he posed us the laughter he captured was genuine. We loved every second of having him at our wedding. We received our pictures within 2 weeks, and every single shot was beautiful. If you are looking for a photographer in the Tahoe area, look no further than Sam Hamilton!

Well, the pictures tell most of the story here.. I shoot what inspires me, and I'm constantly inspired to shoot. I'm inspired by people, I'm inspired by places; many of my favorite shots occur when those two elements harmonize making a genuine magic moment. Capturing those magic moments is what drives me.

I'm drawn to the outdoors, so most of my shooting is with natural light even when its indoors. I like imagery that conveys mood and manipulating the elements at hand to create that mood. I have studied design and enjoy working with the fundamentals like balance, symmetry, space and texture.
