Artistic edge for the untraditional couple

Being chosen to capture your elopement, intimate wedding, or business branding is an honor I take to heart.

Nothing thrills me more than sharing your story through my camera lens. If you're looking for timeless images that look and feel like you, trust that I’ll create an unforgettable experience to let your love (or talent!) shine. That’s the beauty and blessing of pursuing your own path. 

Hi,  Samantha here!

Elopements + Intimate Weddings


-You deserve to feel amazing no matter how you choose to celebrate. That's why I design your day to be incredibly fun (and stress-free!) down to the last detail. 

-A calm presence and creative problem-solver, taking care of you and yours is my priority every step of the way. 

-My mission is to photograph your day as it unfolds, so you're able to feel immersed in the emotion and alive in every memory.
I promise to find beauty everywhere we go.

-I live for movement and life in photography. My style is as true to life as possible while enhancing the warmth and richness of your love.

-A natural director, I encourage you to let your chemistry shine instead of masking the magic with unrealistic filters.
Expect your photos to feel natural, timeless, and entirely true to you. 

my approach

  • My favorite part of an elopement or intimate wedding day? The in-between moments when I catch your true emotion and chemistry.

  • From painting to thrifting—I'm all about getting creative. In fact, my background in interior design offers the added bonus of curating just the right visual vibe!

  • Hiking + strength training keeps me in shape for your adventurous elopements along with nutritious cooking. 

  • A dreamer who loves a good bonfire, traveling to experience new culture inspires my creativity and expands my craft. 

  • Above all, I love the Lord.
