about  the  photographer

Hey there! I’m Sam and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in the Reno-Tahoe region. Besides being in love with capturing memories, I also have a huge heart for animals, a desire to ALWAYS be at the ocean, and a passion for learning everything under the sun. I began learning about photography nearly 10 years ago, as a pre-teen. However, I began taking images professionally 3 years ago, in 2016. What started as a hobby has turned into a career; and I never want to stop! My goal in being your photographer is to make you feel celebrated and comfortable, capture your genuine happiness, and make your time spent in front of the camera carefree and fun! 

I am a firm believer that being a photographer is about so much more than just taking images of your wedding day. My mission with every session and wedding I am given the opportunity to work on is to capture the moments that best tell YOUR story as genuinely and candid as possible.

In addition to capturing weddings, I also love to photograph family, maternity, and newborn sessions. When it comes to babies and children- they are only little for a little while, capture them while you can! For these sessions, I am happy to come to your home, or we can explore the many gorgeous locations available in the area.  Ideas and options are endless!  I thrive on the stories told in front of my camera.  I love being able to capture real and organic moments, as well as help others tell their story through a photograph. ​I believe in documenting love stories, capturing genuine smiles, and the beauty of everyday life. I am committed to making photography accessible to every family with fun, wallet-friendly sessions. For all of my future clients looking to book their wedding date or session, I always recommend a (free!) in-person meeting/consultation. It gives us a chance to meet one another, review the contract, and ask any questions we may have. If you cannot meet in-person due to travel/location, I am also available by phone and am always happy to give you a call! With every client I meet, I look forward to not only the beautiful images that will come out of your session but truly getting to know you and finding a setting and style that will match yours! I want to share my love of photography with you and your family, and look forward to working with you! 

Thank You!
