Full Description
Being a military family we have lived across the whole of the UK so I am able to travel and know quite a few wedding venues around the country. My style is earthy, cooler, candid, true to life. I photograph with a gently prompted, documentary approach. I've been photographing weddings professionally since 2016 and have experienced a wide variety of wedding styles & cultures. My packages start from £2500 and include travel. If you are looking for a natural, organic, candid, unobtrusive, intimate, connection then let's chat!

Fantastic memories of the best day of my life
Sam was the photographer for our wedding in July and we can not thank her enough for her expertise and how she managed to capture our special moments. A brilliant photographer who made us feel at ease from the off. We would highly recommend Sam and guests from our wedding have already asked for her contact details.

Best day of our life
Sam did our amazing photos she was amazing and felt like she was part of our family. I couldn’t have shared those special momoments with anyone else and having the pictures taken didn’t feel like a chore.

What is your most memorable wedding?

I honestly don't have an answer for that. I immerse myself in every single wedding and couple that I serve. Each wedding is incredibly unique to them and I'm ready for it all!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed Organic Natural Creative Discreet

What about your business are you most proud of?

My ability to make friends with everyone at the wedding! I'm a firm believer that you're buying into me as much as my photos/video.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Make time during the big day to have some alone time. You'll be surprised at how little you actually spend with each other!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I LOVE it when couples write letters to each other and either read them alone while getting ready, or even better, reading them TO each other in the evening when I take them aside during sunset.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I would LOVE to get to know you better and chat with you on a call to hear more about your vision for your day. It’s really important to me to make sure that we are a good fit for each other and we connect which makes the day super comfortable and puts us both at ease.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

For me it's the couples session where I'll steal you away from your guests for a while. Bonus points if there's a sunset too!

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

My favourite was a couple who eloped by a runway, and sat on the wings of an old military jet, just as the sun was setting behind them.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Wellies and brollies! It's only a bit of rain, we can get creative and have fun in the puddles.

Describe how you got into photography.

Since studying an art degree at university, back in the days when I'd be developing my own prints in the darkroom! Since then I have loved taking photos, and once my children were born I realised how quickly their little lives evolve, and felt the need to capture moments in time for others. Most importantly a wedding day, you can't repeat it!
