There is something about a couple in love that really makes my heart skip a beat.  Smiles are warmer and more genuine, cheeks are flushed and full of life.  I really just think that love is breathtaking and I want to give you all of the feels every time you look through your wedding and engagement album.  I want to transport you back to that moment, that kiss, the feeling you had when you first held hands.  Love is a journey, and having photographs to document the steps is a gift I will give for the rest of my days.  Let me gift those memories to you. 

I'M HERE TO HELP YOU remember YOUR ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME LOVE STORY

once-in-a-lifetime love

I'M sam! mama of 3, Wife,  PHOTOGRAPHER, & FRIEND

well hey there!

I'm Sam and I'm a wedding & boudoir photographer serving Erie PA, the tri-state area, and BEYOND! I'm so happy you stopped by. I love people, and being able to give people memories to last a lifetime is truly an amazing feeling. My husband and I have 3 amazing children who run our world, but we wouldn't have it any other way. I am a bubbly, loud, vivacious lady who wants to travel the world (without having to fly if possible). Smiles and laughter are my weak spot and music is my medicine. I cannot wait to meet you and get to know how great you all are. I believe that every person deserves a time to shine. Let me help you with yours. When you're picking a photographer, pick someone who will have your back from day one, someone you can have as a friend. Pick me :) Much much love and I can't wait to chat with you soon!

a few of my favorite things:

Movie- Hmmm that's a tie Forrest Gump or Grease (with Dirty Dancing as a close 2nd/3rd)
Book- Harry Potter.  Pick any of them. 
Food- Mac and cheese. No hesitation ever.
Tv Show- Grey's Anatomy and Gossip Girl. I can't say which I love more honestly!
Place I've ever been- Went to the Bahamas once with my parents when I was a kid and have always wanted to go back! Something about the island breeze and cool waters just makes me so zen. 
Place I WANT to go?- This is SO TOUGH but I'd love to go to Ireland or Australia. Any takers? ;)
Animal- COWS!!!!! I cannot express my love for them enough.
