Photography is so much more than an image printed on some paper, or pixels on a screen. Photography is how your adventure is captured, your legacy lives on, and memories become everlasting. Enkindle is cultivated to provide photography that ignites all the feels, and to show off your unique energy. I am Sammi, the person behind this little fire. Planning a wedding can be CRAZY. I'm here to help you not only get some killer photos, but also to help throughout the entire process. Call me: A helping hand, hype girl, not just "some other" vendor. You deserve a photographer who truly cares about you. Click below, to get to know more about me and my method!
We used Sammi for an elopement and after, family photos, and I'm never going back to anyone else! I literally can not imagine working with anyone else now. She makes being in front of the camera so easy, she has a contagious laugh which makes smiles easy, she has such a fun and kind energy that my niece and nephew (4 & 6) just fed off of, and our photos turned out so amazing. Sammi has an amazing vision and passion and I can not recommend her enough!
I can’t say enough great things about Sammi! Not only is she super talented but also super fun and easy to work with! She made the overall experience super smooth and was so helpful and throughout the whole process! You could tell she was genuinely so excited for us and is for all of her clients, her energy is so addicting. I’d absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone! She did an amazing job with our wedding photos and I can’t wait to work with her again!
Sammi was very professional, but also made the shoot fun. She did a great job of highlighting our skin tones. 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.
Sammi is the absolute best! Having her join your wedding experience is worth every penny. She is committed, professional, and has an eye for capturing the best moments of your day. She made this 7months pregnant mama feel beautiful. We loved her so much we asked her to take pictures of our family after our daughter was born. Our daughter cried the whole time, but Sammi was still able to get some of my most favorite pictures. We love you Sammi and couldn’t be happier with our experience!
For someone who doesn’t like to be in front of the camera, Sammi made this shoot not only comfortable, but so much fun to do! As a professional she brings contagious energy that can’t help but make you smile, and the photos tuned out so beautifully! 12/10 would recommend for any special occasion!
