"A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people."
Ever since I was a little girl I knew I wanted a career that focused in the arts. Since I have absolutely no singing voice (which still doesn’t prevent me from breaking out in tune from time to time) or any foreseeable acting career, when I turned 16 I asked my parents for a camera.
After bringing my camera with me everywhere and forcing my friends into impromptu photoshoots, I decided I wanted to make photography my career. After high school, I attended the Hallmark Institute of Photography and learned all aspects of how to run my own photography business. Attending Hallmark provided me the opportunity to move to New York City in the fall of 2010 where I was able to intern for Studio D in Hearst Tower assisting with photoshoots for Hearst Magazines.
After completing my internship with Hearst, I moved back to Central Massachusetts and started building relationships with new clients and accepting any job sent my way. It was then that I was first asked to be a second shooter for a wedding, something I had never done or ever considered doing. I absolutely fell in love with everything that went into photographing a wedding: the adrenaline rush of taking the perfect shot at the right moment, all the little details that were carefully chosen, the tears of happiness and how a relationship grew into a marriage. Little did I know that one request so long ago led me to the career path I was always meant to be on.
Sam did an amazing job with our wedding photos! She was very professional but also laid back, which helped us feel more comfortable being photographed. The day of everything was so busy but she jumped right in and got right to work, I didn't even notice the camera half of the time! She was receptive to my ideas and so easy to work with! She was open to photographing in many different settings (including the middle of a busy downtown street) to help me achieve my vision.
She worked well with the other vendors of the day. The wedding photo website she gives you access to is also beautiful and a really fun way to share the pics with family and friends/ order prints. I can't say enough good things-I would absolutely recommend her to anyone getting married!!
SAM IS AMAZING!!!! This is the wedding photographer you WANT!!!! I cannot say enough great things about her. We had only met her a once before when we got engaged and had communication through out the two years in preparation for our day. Let me tell you, it was like one of my life long friends was photographing our wedding. I was so beyond comfortable with her. She was basically my go to woman the whole night and she dealt with my stress and anxiety levels perfectly(haha) She helped fix my dress (she’s worked at a bridal boutique in her past SUPER HELPFUL) she made sure people we’re quick and present, she made sure to remind me to smile at the alter when I would glance at her, she made sure she was in charge and nothing was going to ruin HER photography.
She takes PRIDE in her work and it shows. Her second shooter, was such a hype woman and our guys she shot LOVED HER. she was just as amazing as Sam. Everything about her company is amazing. If you don’t have her as your photographer your making a huge mistake! Best night ever and she was a huge part of it.
Sam is absolutely incredible! We used Samantha Turco Photography for our engagement photos as well as for our wedding and it was hands down the best choice. Not only is she incredibly kind and personable, she has a great eye for capturing the most stunning shots. As a bride, photography was the most important piece of my wedding. These are the moments that I will be able to look back on for the rest of my life. On the day of our wedding, she was INCREDIBLE at helping everything stay on track. She had every detail handled and her calmness helped me stay at ease the whole morning leading up to the ceremony.
Sam’s pictures brought me to tears (of happiness) when we received them and will always remind me of the best day of our lives. I will never be able to thank Sam enough for capturing our big day so beautifully. If you’re looking for an absolutely amazing photographer, she’s your girl!
