Hi, I’m Samantha, the artist behind the lens. I’ve had a love and appreciation for the arts my entire life, and knew early on that a creative career was always in my future. Since I’m no painter, have absolutely no singing voice (which has yet to stop me from occasionally breaking out in song) nor the chops to make it as an actor, photography quickly became my first love.
Now, flash forward to the present, and I have 10+ years of experience photographing weddings, engagements and other special moments throughout Central MA and beyond. As a photographer, I have found the career path that sets my soul on fire, and my passion shines through every photo I take. In addition to photography, I love all things coffee, wine, live music at intimate venues, Netflix binging, and of course, my furbaby (aka dog), Lu. Professionally, I enjoy building long-lasting relationships with my clients who quickly become my friends, paying attention to even the smallest of details (it’s the Libra in me) and helping you “embrace the awkwardness” that is having your photo taken.
I got my first camera when I turned 16, and from then on it was rare to find me without it on hand. I forced impromptu photo shoots with friends, took pictures of everything and everyone that I could, and when it came time for graduation, I knew my path was headed towards making a career out of my passion for photography.
I attended the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Massachusetts, and graduated in 2010. After graduating I moved to NYC to intern with Studio D in Hearst Tower, where I worked on accounts like Cosmopolitan, Elle, and the Food Network, all while sleeping on an air mattress in a 3-bedroom apartment shared by 6 people, a dog and a bird– it doesn’t get more NYC than that!
I professionally trained at the Hallmark Institute of Photography, learning from renowned photographers Gregory Heisler and David Turner, among other creative professionals.
In 2018 and 2019, I was awarded Worcester's Best Wedding Photographer by Worcester Magazine.
As your photographer, I go above and beyond to make sure that you feel comfortable during your session, and comfortable with me so that you can get the most out of your investment. I want to make having your photo taken as painless as possible and will always do what I can to help you “embrace the awkwardness.” Learn more about the investment packages I offer here.
