Hi, I'm Samantha.

I am a Cincinnati based wedding and lifestyle portrait photographer, but I love going where you are and exploring. My journey into photography started at the age of 13 and I quickly fell in love with the ability to make someone comfortable and feel good after having their photo taken.​ That ability has stayed with me for over 10 years and is now an integral part in how I photograph weddings and portraits. Capturing the big and little moments in your life whether it's a family session, wedding, or just life in general feeds my soul.

I went full time in 2020 and the last three years have been such a dream! Being an integral part of your special moments is the biggest honor.

When I'm not shooting or editing you can find me painting, hanging with the hubby, thrifting, hanging with family or getting ready to welcome our little one into the world spring of 2024!

Embracing the imperfect moment create the perfect memories.

5 Things About Me:

• I strongly believe that pineapple belongs on pizza

• My music taste is all over the place but I love anything folk or Taylor Swift

• I love the rain so let's book a rainy day and get muddy.

• Yoga & line dancing are my favorite forms of exercise 

• My favorite thing to do at night is snuggle up with the boo, watch a tv show and snack on sweets.

Sam is truly such a joy to work with. She is so incredibly warm and inviting from the moment you meet her, and she does her best to make sure you are comfortable and happy through every step of the process. She did such a great job capturing our personalities in our portraits and all of the joyful moments on our big day. We get so many compliments on our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. We have already recommended her to so many of our family and friends for both wedding photos and family

Choose Sam as your photographer, you won't regret it!!! Not only does she know what she's doing behind the camera, but she knows exactly what to have you do in front of the camera to get your perfect shot. Sam did our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures and we are beyond happy with them! The whole process from start to finish was smooth and professional. Sam asked all the right questions & captured everything we asked for + much much more! She really was like another bridesmaid on the day of the we

She is truly amazing! We used Samantha for our engagement and wedding photographer and she was phenomenal. She is able to capture the real emotions but also make it look beautiful. She captured everything we wanted. Her second shooter was also amazing. They both made everyone feel comfortable and not feel awkward being in front of the camera. I have literally recommended Samantha to anyone I know looking for a photographer!
