My goal as your photographer is to capture those moments with timeless authenticity... to provide you with purposeful images that capture the joy of your love story and preserve your most significant moments from one generation to the next.
Along the way, I hope to serve you by making you feel loved, celebrated, and comfortable in front of the camera. I'm here to help make this process as easy and joy-filled as possible!
You are a couple who understands that your wedding day is just the beginning—the beginning of a lasting marriage, and the start to a new chapter in your family legacy. As joyous as your wedding day will be, you know that it will be followed by years of even greater love and laughter. You appreciate sentimental details and little moments. And you know that those special memories are worth preserving... not just for you, but for the generations yet to come.
You only get to take your engagement photos once! So, I've put together a fun freebie to help you be as prepared as possible for your e-session. Sign up for the SKP email list to get exclusive content, discounts, & more freebies like this one!
After the wedding, you two will jet off on your honeymoon to enjoy your first vacation as a married couple! But before the plane hits the runway, you'll already get to see a sneak peek of your images! I love to send a few favorite photos for you to enjoy right away. While you relax and enjoy your vacation, I'll be hard at work editing your gallery to perfection—delivered to your inbox within eight weeks. In addition, I offer keepsake prints to frame on the walls of your home, and elegantly designed heirloom albums to enjoy for decades to come.
On the big day, I am here to capture the authentic joy of your wedding day from start to finish. I'll arrive with styling kit in-hand to capture all the sentimental details, like your grandmother's earrings and your pretty invitation suite. I'll also shoot candids and getting ready photos with your loved ones... along with all the gorgeous reception details awaiting your guests at the venue. Of course, I absolutely love capturing your portraits as a couple, from your first look to the moment you say "I do" to family photos where we recognize all of the loved ones who have supported your relationship through thick and thin. Then let's celebrate your marriage with a huge party from first dances to cake cutting and everything else in between!
I'm here to make this process as easy and enjoyable for you as possible! I'm more than happy to provide helpful resources for your experience, including engagement session tips, trusted vendor referrals, and wedding timeline assistance, plus my signature SKP Bridal Guide—which is full of tips to help you prepare for the big day to arrive! In the meantime, we will also schedule and shoot your Engagement Session: the perfect time to get better acquainted and also learn to get comfortable in front of the camera so you feel like a pro on the wedding day!
"Using Sami was definitely one of the best decisions we made through our wedding process! She is prompt in responding to emails and questions, was timely for every appointment that we made, and takes GORGEOUS photos. She was so easy to work with, and so kind. After every photo she took she had something encouraging to say that made you feel beautiful. Wedding planning can be so stressful, and she was organized, and her presence had nothing but a mellowing effect all the way from engagements, to bridal portraits for the wedding day. During the ceremony you had no idea she was in the room, and yet the pictures of that time were absolutely lovely. It was really important to me that all of my vendors recognized the importance and magnitude of the commitment we were making through our marriage, and I can honestly say that is reflected through Sami's work and the care she takes in every step from communication to packaging of her products."
"Where to begin?!? Not only does Sami have an amazing eye, her photographs captured moments and interactions better than I ever could have imagined for our wedding! When we did our engagement photos with Sami, we both immediately felt comfortable enough laugh, pose and had a great time with her. During our wedding, Sami was so wonderful - she knew people by name, she corralled the groups, and she captured every part of the event beautifully! All our family members commented on how incredible she was and complemented how she handled her role. Sami is truly a gem and I would recommend her to anyone searching for a photographer for their special day."
"Not only did Sami capture all our favorite moments (smiles, tears, hugs and dance moves!), she was so professional and organized, kept us calm on the wedding day and made the planning process so much fun along the way. She's so sweet, she just makes you want to be her best friend!"
"We loved having Sami as our photographer for our special day! She was so professional, but yet it felt like we had known each other for years. Her work is amazing and she does such a great job! I would HIGHLY recommend Sami for anyone who asks!"
"Sami is THE BEST photographer I have ever worked with. She is so kind, encouraging, and professional during her shoots. She has an amazing way of making you feel so comfortable and special the entire time. Her pictures are beautiful and we know we will never be disappointed. We will never use another photographer because of how amazing Sami is."
"Sami is an INCREDIBLE photographer and amazing to work with. She is encouraging and just makes you feel so incredibly special throughout the whole process! And her photos are creative, artistic, and breathtaking! I can't wait to continue using her for milestones ahead!"
