Kaleb & Amber

They're so dang adorable and I absolutely LOVE how she captured our raw emotions and got so many amazing candid photos. I'm also so beyond excited that she had captured the moments that are such a blur to me as well. She was so sweet and helpful. I know everyone in front of the lens will love her. 

Sammi was such a pleasure to be around and you need her shooting your wedding day. I just had a moment to look at all the photos and -wow.

"I absolutely LOVE how she captured our raw emotions"

Tobias & Eni

She was open to going to our suggested location, and for us to get the poses we wanted. I would HIGHLY recommend her as your photographer. Don't Hesitate, I can't wait to hire her again in the future. Seriously 10/10. -Eni

Sammi was very professional, but also made the shoot fun. She did a great job of highlighting our skin tones.

Chris & Callie

This was our first photo session ever. Sammi made us feel so comfortable. She brought music and made us feel relaxed. We were able to have fun, and enjoy the time with each other. I highly recommend her for both formal and "just-because" photos! You can't go wrong. -Chris

We had a blast with Sammi! We wanted something low key. We enjoyed the experience, and we'll have memories that we'll love forever!
