Hi! I’m Samantha Bonpensiero and I am a wedding and portrait photographer. I have loved photographing people since I first picked up a film camera at 15. Since then, I switched over to digital and went on to get my degree in Art Photography and have been a freelance photographer ever since. I am a San Diego native currently living in the city of Philadelphia. I decided to broaden my horizons by bringing my west coast style to the East Coast. My photographic style is full of color and I am inspired by natural light and a gorgeous surrounding. I believe every wedding and session should be photographed as unique as the people in them, with a fresh perspective and on a personal level.
I am a published photographer and have had the opportunity to share my work in print and online. I have been featured in Exquisite Weddings, California Wedding Day, How He Asked, Style Me Pretty, The Huffington Post and more.

Samantha was flexible from the beginning when I had to reschedule our meeting and to the day the venue changed after she had visited. But everything worked out great because she had a great feel for my personality and what I wanted. I worried if my husband would hate taking pictures for over an hour but he liked her fun personality too and she got a large variety of photos in a short amount of time. That helped! I have enjoyed looking over the photos often!Im sure she could doctor them up a bunch but we got fortunate with the time of day and she used the lighting so beautifully i love our wedding pics! Lots of my friends wait forever for their pics but she sent us many of the best ones in about a week so we got to see them during the honeymoon! That was cool. And, the keepsake box and the photo book the engraved memory stick came in will travel with me the rest of my life. And the wedding album is what makes it such a good deal!Sent on 11/05/2015

Awesome photographer, great experience! I started emailing Samantha ages before we actually arranged to have the photo session. She was helpful and communicative the entire time. Since my husband and I are new to San Diego, she recommended different locations to us and really worked to give us the most beautiful shots possible. Samantha also took the time to sit down with us pre-shoot to talk about what to expect, outfit recommendations, and our final choice of location - La Jolla. She was easy to relax around and really had an eye for interesting location and poses. We shot at La Valencia Hotel and on the beach in La Jolla. My husband and I don't particularly like posing for photos, but Samantha kept things light and easy, so we were totally relaxed and had a blast the entire time! The end result is wonderful, the photos are really beautiful. I'm so happy to have found someone like Samantha who worked so hard to really make our engagement photos a happy, treasured memory.Sent on 02/26/2015
