I'm Sami: a wedding and portrait photographer who believes in thoughtfully selected details that celebrate your unique relationship, heirlooms that are sentimental & intentional, and images that illustrate the legacy of your family.
My photography style is purposeful and timeless with attention to details and intimate moments that speak to marriage and legacy. Natural light, true-to-life colors, contrast, and exposure allow me to create heirloom images. I strive to make my clients the center of each photograph, to capture personality, and to deliver quality images that will be passed from generation to generation.

“Sami was incredible, truly a dream vendor! From the moment we made contact with her to many months after the wedding it has been the most seamless and enjoyable process. Sami is far more than just a photographer, she provides so much support and resources throughout the entire process and brings kindness and patience to every interaction.”
Building intentional rhythms and family traditions, making lists, going on walks at White Rock Lake, and quality time with my favorite people.
Wife to Matt and Mama to Annie, my family is the biggest gift in my life. Through my own story in marriage and motherhood, I am truly honored to document these seasons in the lives of my clients.
My faith is the foundation of
my life and my marriage. God’s
grace, direction, and love fuel
my creativity and my business.
As we grow in our experience of marriage and come to more deeply know our spouses, I hope we can each find an increase of wisdom and understanding that allows us to better serve our marriages with compassion and discernment.
As much as I believe marriage is sacred and special... I also believe it should be fun! I hope every marriage includes spontaneity, romance, surprise, and a relationship filled with excitement and laughter through the years.
I believe grace is at the heart of marriage. My hope is that we can allow ourselves to forgive one another, to refine our relationship, to love each other freely with no conditions, and to grow in kindness as we pursue intentional marriage.
Even as you walk the path toward marriage, you have already experienced so much joy in your relationship! My hope is that your happiness will only multiply in this next chapter. I wish an abundance of joy for you and for every marriage!
Every relationship holds peaks and valleys; my prayer is that we may find the resilience to weather life's tougher seasons united as husband and wife and to ultimately emerge with a stronger relationship and an enduring foundation in marriage.
“Sami is an AMAZING photographer, but she is also more than that! She has an amazing heart, and is so kind and helpful.
Within a week of getting engaged I told my husband that we HAD to book Sami. Her pictures are stunning, she has such an eye for her craft and I felt so lucky to have her on my team!
She is beyond helpful during the planning process, and becomes more than a vendor, she becomes a friend. I could not recommend Sami enough, she is responsive, creative, professional, and the best ever!! Thank you Sami for our amazing engagements and wedding photos! We love you so much!!”
“Spectacular, Amazing, Timeless Photography. We knew immediately when we met Sami that she would be the right photographer for us!
So sweet, positive, and understanding of how stressful the wedding process can be. Our photos turned out incredible! They look so elegant and beautiful! I could not be happier. She was a very positive presence on our wedding day, making sure she corralled the right people to be where they needed to be, capturing all the details I wanted.
Seriously, Sami is a very genuine, sincere, and authentic person who will be there for you on your wedding day. It was really important for us to have a vendor team that was the right fit and a nice person—so if that is what you want in a photographer, BOOK SAMI!”
“Sami truly captured every moment and emotion perfectly. We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with Sami!
Our Dream Wedding Photographer! Sami was the best decision that we could have made when planning our wedding! She was one of the first vendors we booked and was so professional, yet personable during our entire experience of working with her. She was not only incredible for our engagement shoot and throughout the wedding day, she helped create our wedding day timeline, which lined up perfectly so that we could fit all photos in prior to the sunset and not feel rushed throughout the day. We have received so many wonderful comments on our wedding photos that we will cherish forever. She made an effort to understand what was important to us in a photographer and she really honed into that to ensure she captured everything throughout the wedding day.
“We loved every single image in our final gallery, you can tell how important it is to her to capture the moments that mean the most to her clients.
Not only is her photography GORGEOUS and her experience invaluable, but she is the sweetest human and she genuinely wants to support you as you plan your wedding and start your marriage! She delivered all of the shots we previously discussed, but so many more candids filled with the people we love the most.
I also cannot say enough great things about having her there on the wedding day itself! She was this incredibly calm and joyful presence the day of the wedding, it was like having another friend there to celebrate with us which took so much pressure off and allowed us to really be ourselves in our photos. I cannot say enough things about how great of an experience it was working with Sami, I will forever recommend her and am so excited to get to work with her in the future!”
“She truly goes above and beyond to make her clients feel comfortable and special during their sessions, and very clearly cares a great deal about her craft.
Sami is such an amazing photographer, and SUCH a joy to work with! We cannot recommend her enough to anyone that asks! We booked her pre-covid and she was super helpful in helping us navigate rescheduling our wedding with her! She shot our elopement on our original date, and was such a calming presence when we clearly had no idea what we were doing or where we were going.
On our rescheduled date, we had a larger ceremony and reception to celebrate with family and friends, and Sami was a ROCKSTAR in navigating all the chaos with such grace. Our entire bridal party was so impressed with Sami and her team throughout the whole day. We seriously could not imagine working with ANYONE else for our wedding, and will definitely be using her for any other photography needs in the future!!”
“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. 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."
