I’m addicted to capturing stories. Really. Even if it’s 1AM after a wedding, I am so excited to pop my memory cards into my computer and look at the pictures that I can’t even sleep. 
My photography isn’t geared towards perfection, it’s all about documenting the truth. I’m really all about telling your story. Please don’t hesitate to tell me every little detail! It’s the love that my couples share, the way that they look into each other's eyes so fondly, and their laughter and joy that make moments worth turning into memories. 

Hey, I'm Samantha!

documenting what matters most in life. 

preserving time

Cities are definitely my thing.

i lived in london.

Can you tell?

i love black and white.

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.

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.

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!
