Hello Bride-to-be and Welcome!
This is such an exciting time for you! I’m sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. It’s all very exciting , but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. You’re planning the day that you’ve been anticipating your whole life and yet you only get one shot at it! By the time you get the hang of it, the planning is over! My goal as a wedding photographer is to make this one aspect of the planning processs simple. Photography is more than just images, it’s a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience.

The biggest blessing that comes out of my relationship with SCP Couples is the gift of friendship.
That may not have been what your were expecting to read here, but if nothing on on this page please read this. It’s so important for me to explain how I view my relationship with my couples. Three years into my business, I started praying for God to give me more purpose and more impact in my business. I loved the images I created but I knew there was something missing. I started realizing that what I desired in my business, more than anything, was a personal connection to my couples. Everyone wants to be known, seen, loved and befriended. I don’t know if I’ve ever met a human being who didn’t appreciate someone caring about who they are, what they’re passionate about, etc. In the early years of my business, we committed to forming friendships with our clients and intentionally caring to get to know them. It changed everything. Having a heart for genuine friendships in our business has made our business so much more than how we pay our bills, it’s a huge part of our purpose in life. Not only is our frienship with our couples a gift to us, but it positively impacts our client’s wedding day experience. When you are getting ready the morning of your wedding day, it will be a relief to feel like a friend walks through those doors with a camera and not just a random hired vendor. Friendship breeds comfortability and comfortability leads to trust... and trust is something that EVERY bride needs to have in their relationship with their wedding photographer!
After all these years and all these weddings, my favorite part of my job is all all the amazing couples that come into my life! I would like to introduce you to a few of them.
"Don’t hesitate to book Samantha as your photographer! Sammie was incredible to work with. She was not only a fabulous, friendly, and patient wedding photographer, but she makes you feel like you’re her friend. She made everyone feel comfortable and happy whenever she photographed us. But she also can blend in the background, such as making your First Look feel like you two are the only ones there. My husband and I were so lucky to have Sammie be the one to capture our moments on our special day. If it rains on your wedding day like it did on ours, Sammie always has emergency bubble umbrellas on hand! (They actually made our photos so much more fun!) We booked Sammie and a second photographer (who happens to be her extremely sweet and bubbly daughter Kelsie), which I highly recommend! We also got all of our wedding photos in about 2 weeks, and they all came out so beautifully. So, if you are looking for an incredibly sweet, fun, and relaxed photographer, book Samantha!"

"We had Samantha for both our engagement and wedding photos and LOVE her. We did our engagement photos on a bit of a drizzly day, on the summit of a mountain, with our puppy in tow, and despite all those factors, Samantha captured us perfectly (and yes, our pup too!) At our wedding, Samantha showed up with amazing energy, and immediately made everyone feel at ease - not a small feat! Even when we were running late due to other things, Samantha captured all the shots we wanted, and make it easy to move through poses naturally. Samantha is a sweetheart, and hugely gifted at what she does! I get teary looking through our photos and I can't imagine anyone else taking them. Thank you, Samantha!"
-Katie, SCP Bride.
Samantha was so easy going and fun to work with! She captured every moment asked of her and so much more! Everyone had such nice things to say about her and our photos! She was so patient for we had a very large bridal party but she kept everyone focused and got all the photos we requested and more! She was there every step of the way I needed her and I can’t thank her enough for that!
-Christina, SCP Bride.
We booked Samantha almost a year and a half before our wedding and I can honestly say she was absolutely amazing to work with right from the beginning. She was prompt, organized and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Our engagement photos were our first professional photos and she directed us so well, including humorous moments to make sure we had fun with it. Our engagement pictures came out so beautifully, we felt like pros by our wedding day! I sent her a couple examples of bridal shots that I liked and not only did she make sure I got the shots, they looked even more gorgeous than I could've imagined! I am so happy we booked Samantha to capture these memories for us, her pictures make me cry every time I relive our special day!
