About us



YASSSS!! You’ve made it to our page! Let’s get to it….. I’m here to catch those special moments that you wish you could relive every minute of!  Our dream is to capture your special moments as naturally and beautifully as we can to emphasize the true essence of you and your partner. I’ll make you wiggle (literally) out the awkward feelings, and help you embrace the moments that fly by.

How to describe my photography: natural, candid, fun, and modern.

What we bring to the table: A laid back approach to destress your day, fun (aka not awkward) portrait time, genuine connection, and some sanity to an otherwise crazy day!

​HEY! THAT'S ME AND MY DUDE DAVE UP THERE ^^^ Even though we often shoot as a husband + wife team for weddings, I (Sam), am the owner of Samantha Marie Photography, but figure you should get to see his face too, since you will probably see him on your wedding day!

I'm a tree-loving, art-adoring, adventuring, travel-loving, foodie, animal-obsessed, ER nurse, almost-city girl who loves to photograph everything.

My Loves: Animals, traveling, nature, vegan food, cooking, house plants, science, painting, and gifs.

Interesting tidbits: I'm a reiki practitioner, ER nurse, painter, and have previously been a dog walker and cancer researcher... I tend to just dive right in!

Dave's loves: Guitar, sunshine, wind, traveling, a good sandwich, trees, and rocks. Dave is a geologist by day, so we have a lot of rocks in our house.

Dave and I have been together for a little over 7 years and married for almost 3, and loving every minute of it!

“If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.” - Mr. Rogers . (Yeah, I just quoted Mr. Rogers)
