Hey! I'm Samantha!

your personal storyteller capturing every moment with an artistic touch.

I have been blessed to be a wedding photographer for 7 years now.
Ever since I could hold a camera, I have been taking photos. My journey as a photographer began as a photojournalist, I have also worked in a studio, and I graduated with a BFA in Photography from Kent State University. When I say that nothing compares to capturing weddings, I mean it wholeheartedly. I am so incredibly fortunate to document sentiment and love.

Samantha is absolutely amazing! She did my engagement pictures and my wedding pictures- which came back super fast and I got access to all my pictures. She was so sweet and knew how to get the perfect angles and poses. I have nothing but great things to say about her! She truly captured every moment of my day.

I can’t say enough good things about Samantha. Her pictures are beautiful and she is a lovely person. She has a knack for capturing the spirit of the person or event. She had many wonderful ideas of what pictures to take when I didn’t know what I wanted. I have so many great photos to choose from. I recommend her without hesitation.

We hired Samantha to document our beautiful wedding. We were very impressed with her. She blended in the background while taking amazing photos. The photos we received were so lovely, so beautiful, that we were very pleased with her service! She worked with the surroundings to catch some magical moments. We highly recommend Stories by Samantha!
