Yet of the many things that are important to me, all of them have them have something in common


My Why..

Connection. To me, the purpose and joy in life is connection. Connecting to one another, connecting to ourselves, our environment. Being able to photograph humbling connections, creating connections, and creating art at the same time is truly incredible for me. The ability to experience that, capturing that and to bring you back to those moments of warmth is my why.


I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Samantha! Her images are stunning and working with her was a true pleasure. She is kind, professional, and beyond talented. She even had several images posted by the end of the weekend we got married - a fantastic teaser of the beautiful images to come. I will definitely be looking for more reasons to book her as a photographer in the future! If she is available for your wedding, book her now!

Suzonne & Katie

Sam and her husband Dave are seriously the most talented and down to earth people my wife and I know. I was lucky enough to meet Sam in college and even luckier to have her as a friend and roommate. So naturally, Sam and her hubby would be guests at our wedding. Sam shot our engagement photos and we were speechless. We searched and searched for a style like hers and could not find it. My wife and I asked Sam if she would do us the honor of capturing our wedding day in Charleston, SC. With zero hesitation, she accepted! We couldn't be more pleased with Sam and Dave's work. They were so organized and never made us feel rushed even when our timeline ran a little (or a lot) behind. Everything was perfect. They captured moments that because of the chaos of the day we didn't even remember happening. We cannot thank Samantha Marie Photography for making our memories last a lifetime. I would recommend Sam to everyone!!!!

Dana & Darnell

I felt overwhelmed & had no idea where to start in booking vendors & randomly came across Sam on Facebook. Best chance encounter ever! To feel each other out before the big day, she did an engagement shoot with us & we were sold right away. Sam is so talented (absolutely love her use of natural light & minimal edits), reliable, personable, & came with so many different ideas - while also making sure she got some from us too. She did an awesome job capturing so many fun candids at the wedding. Without missing a beat, her & the videographer didn't get in one of each other's shots all day, either. Bottom line, she was outstanding & we can't say enough. By far our favorite vendor of the day.
