First things first, hit pause on your favorite episode of Friends and tell me about the kind of session you’re looking to plan! Whether it’s a wedding day or an anniversary session, I want to hear about your big dreams and make sure your date is available.

Once, we’ve made sure your date is open, let’s grab margs and talk specifics! I’ll answer your questions, and you’ll tell me your incredible story. Then, after the contract is signed and the retainer is paid, I officially become your photographer!

You’ve prepped and planned, and now it’s time to live your dream! Once the camera starts clicking, I’ll be flooding you with constant encouragement, advice, and tips on how to fill your gallery with the images of your dreams.

For portraits and engagements, you’ll receive a gallery just one week after the final photo is taken, and for weddings, you’ll be picking out your favorites in just two months after the “I do”s! It’s just that easy to have images to love for a lifetime.

・I shot my first wedding in 2017, so that makes it 5 years.

・I am located in Bryan, Texas but travel all over the state to my clients.

・I most definitely do. With the arrival of our first baby in September '22 I have cut back on my traveling to stay within Texas until I can travel with my family. There are additional travel expenses of $0.60/mile for sessions outside Brazos County and a hotel room is required for weddings that are over 2 hours of travel for me. 

・My goal is to get all of my clients galleries to them asap. With sessions it usually takes me no more than 2 weeks but I try to keep it around 1 week. Wedding galleries take me 5 weeks to complete in my slower season and 10 weeks in my busy season. Busy season for me is in the fall. I always send my clients previews within 24 hours of their session/wedding.

・Yes! For portrait sessions, I do require a 50% non-refundable retainer fee to save your spot, with the remaining 50% due one week before your session. For weddings, a $1,500+tax non-refundable retainer fee and a signed contract will save your date on my calendar. The remaining amount can be paid in full a month before the big day or be split into a more convenient payment plan. All payments have to be completed one month before your wedding. 

・I DO NOT deliver any unedited images. 

・Most definitely! I absolutely love when my client ask for help and my advise on anything.  I really feel like including me in the process of planning your wedding also helps me take my job as photographer to the max.

・It's really as easy as 1, 2, 3. Send in an inquiry form, I'll respond asap, we'll chat about your wants and needs, I'll create a proposal for you and send you my client guides, payment paid, contract signed(by both of us) and the deal is sealed. Then the planning process begins for us and you check off photographer.

"Sam was so awesome to work with for my wedding! She was making us laugh so hard during our engagement session and knew her stuff when it came to grabbing that perfect photo! She captured moments at our wedding, I will cherish for a lifetime. Highly recommended!"
