"I'm Samantha and I'm a wedding photographer & educator serving the DMV 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.  I have 3 amazing children who run my world, but I 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 amazing 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"!

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. 


A Few Of My Favorite Things

Margs and snacks! Some of my favs: cheeseboards, popcorn, dill pickles, and peaches with honey! 

Music! I love my record player, and if you pop some Beatles on there, you can bet I'll sing along! 

My family! These 3 littles are the light of our lives.  They have taught me so much in their short time here, and their smiles bring me so much joy. 

Statement earrings. No explanation needed here I think. Bonus if they are pink or Kate Spade because those are magic. 

My cats! I went from not liking them at all to being obsessed with them.  Just call me crazy cat lady. Yes I even have albums for them.

You'll find while looking through the information here that I call myself a "custom" wedding photographer. Why do I do this? What does this mean? Let me break it down for you. I want all of my couples to feel like their wedding is magical. You all deserve the best photographic experience and I don't ever want a bride to feel like her wedding isn't "good enough". I was that bride. Let's talk about your budget and needs, and we can find some packages for you.

Styling Flatlay images.  There is nothing like a good flatlay photo.  I love them so much I even decided years ago to teach other photographers how to do it! 

Photo Albums!! I know this may be an obvious one, but I really love having my photos in print.  Photos of everything, even myself!
