Luxury wedding photo and video for couples building a visual legacy.

8 years ago I photographed a wedding for a friend on emergency notice and quite literally found my dream career overnight.

Since then I have photographed over 100 weddings, and believe I have found a unique recipe for telling a visual story. At the heart of my work is a focus on emotion and human connection. 

I'm so excited you are here to tell you more about it. 

Photographer and filmmaker obsessed with the classics, white picket fences, and creme brulee.

We were so excited to work with Samia because her style and personality matched with ours. The connection and ease we felt with her showed in our wedding photos. The images made us both cry when we viewed them. The light and  love she captured between my husband and my self and our family and friends enchanted everyone who has seen the images – they are full of warmth, humor and genuine romance. Samia also was particularly sensitive about photographing my husband’s daughter who is autistic and camera shy. He literally has never had a good photo of her taken. Samia took many lovely photos of her at our wedding celebration, in many she is actually smiling, which was previously unheard of.

Samia has the sweetest personality and really put me at ease. She kept us on track throughout the day and captured every moment perfectly. We got our photos back so quickly, and they were breathtaking! She captures such candid moments because she gives direction while also allowing you to act naturally. We absolutely love our photos and our video! We can't recommend her enough to document your special day!

Everyone in our family absolutely loved her and commented on how nice she is are and what amazing pictures you take!!! We are absolutely in LOVE with these photos and are so thankful to have booked you to document the most special day in our lives.


"Everyone in our family loved Samia


From our initial consultation call, to our engagement shoot, to the big day, Samia was responsive, friendly, professional, encouraging, and creative. She could tell when we needed a break from taking photos and was prepared to improvise when rain drove us under cover. Samia's second shooter at our wedding was also incredibly professional, talented, and kind. We have nothing but great things to say about our experience and would highly recommend Samia's services to anyone looking for a photographer that will blow you away.

for your wedding, book samia"
