I've been in love with photography for... well... pretty much forever! I can still remember being amazed at the concept of photography while "stealing" my dad's old camera as a child

Currently, I’m photographing lots of weddings and portraits near Central MN, and I love getting to know each of my clients during our time together. Serving my clients through more than just photography is one of my love languages, so buckle up, buttercup. I've got your back and I'll bring the lame dad jokes to get you to loosen up during our session!

On any given night, you can catch me soaking up some cuddles from my kiddos, in the kitchen working on another loaf of sourdough bread, or out in the garden with my hands in the dirt. We cuddle with our two German Shepherd rescue dogs every night (they give us no choice!) and spend as much time in the great outdoors as we can while always daydreaming about our upcoming travel plans.

EARLY SUMMER TENNESSEE WEDDING DAY

"We had family photos taken this past fall for the first time in several years. It was our first experience with Samantha and I couldn’t have been happier. The whole thing from booking to delivery of the photos couldn’t have been easier. And she was so much fun to work with. So easy going and quickly able to read our family to produce pictures that truly captured us. I can’t wait for our next session!"

Her calm presence and genuine compassion help to ease the wedding day stress and leave you feeling like you hired a best friend to take your photos. On top of being a wonderful person to work with, Samantha takes BEAUTIFUL photos!! We are so happy with the quality and selection of photos to choose from during our engagement and wedding sessions. We already have two of her photos hanging up, and we were just married a month ago!"
