for the present day romance

...in a world of instagram filters, I believe in classic imagery.

And in a world of selfies that last 24 hours, I believe in work that stands the test of time.

ABOUT

- Samia

You deserve to be present on your wedding day, and to remember every moment.

 I believe good photography and good art can remind you how you felt, but great photography, and what I strive to create -will show you things you didn’t see the first time. That is my hope for you and your photo gallery. That is what I hope to create for you to hold onto forever. 

My Vow to You 

lover of architecture, 
old soul at heart,
creme brule obsessed 

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!

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"
