As your photographer, it's my goal to create an atmosphere that's fun, comfortable. and easy while capturing special moments and memories worth cherishing. If I'm doing my job, you'll practically forget the camera is there and you'll feel like you're just hanging out with your best friend (even if we just met)!
After discussing your photo needs and determining that we're the right fit, it's time to schedule your session. We'll talk time, date, and location, and get you all set up for the big day. This includes signing a contract and placing a retainer to hold your spot.
Of course, the last step in the process is actually taking the photos, editing and sending them over for you to enjoy. Depending on the amount of photos, the turnaround time can vary, but you can typically expect your portrait sessions in 2-3 weeks and your wedding in 10-12 weeks.
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 those awkward moments.
Where do I even begin? When I say that Samantha was a DREAM to work with I mean that with all sincerity. I already knew of Samantha's work and loved her moody, rich, vibrant aesthetic (and I am very picky). Booking my photographer was one of the first things I did when we got engaged and I was so pleased that she hadn't been booked already. We decided to sign on for the full package of having her shoot our engagement photos and wedding.
Samantha was down for any location, added in her suggestions, and made me feel excited from the get go. Our downtown Worcester engagement shoot was EVERYTHING - fun, relaxed, and she sure knew how to hype up my outfit choices. She was open to poses and made us feel completely comfortable. It was so nice to be able to get the feel of how things would go prior to our wedding.
Leading up to our wedding we spoke multiple times, she laid out details, asked for a shot list of everything we were looking for and communicated frequently which eased a lot of wedding planning stress. The day of our wedding was pure magic in every way and Samantha was no exception. She was there for me in more ways than I expected a photographer to be. She wiped my makeup when I cried, fixed my veil and train, communicated with all the other vendors throughout the day, and ALWAYS had a smile on her face and great energy. Before she left for the night I already had a handful of beautiful edited wedding photos that she surprised us with.
AND THE PICTURES! Wow. I genuinely spent so long scrolling through our album that I started to have wrist pain (LOL). The way that she edits shows her dedication, her craft, her passion and every picture has LIFE that makes it feel like you are truly reliving the day. There is not one photo I can think of that she didn't capture- she got every detail. I could write a novel on the excitement I had working with her. I would recommend her 10 out of 10 times (even though I want to hog her all to myself). Samantha you are incredible as a person and behind the lens and I can't thank you enough for capturing our best day ever.
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!
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.
The turnaround time will all depend on what photo experience you choose. Typically for portrait sessions you will receive your completed gallery in 2-3 weeks, for weddings you will receive your completed gallery in 10-12 weeks. Regardless of what experience you choose, you will receive your memories on an online gallery via PASS gallery, where you can download high-resolution images, share with loved ones and choose to print if you'd like.
Once you sign your contract, I will send over a welcome guide that has wardrobe/location suggestions and inspirations. We can talk about places that have meaning to you or your overall vision and brainstorm together. Above all else, I want your outfits and location to reflect who you are.
Yes, I love to travel! Whether it's local or an exotic destination, I want to go wherever you want your photos to take you. A custom travel package can be created just for you, inquire today for your custom quote.
