Hey there! I’m Samantha and I am so glad that you’re here!

I am a portrait + wedding photographer + private photo editor currently calling central Illinois my home.

I love a good iced coffee + cute coffee shops. Exploring new places. Long hikes in the woods + the outdoors in general. Long talks about life. Nights in with a good book. Sleeping at Last’s songs.

I highly value quality, connection + pampering my clients! Whether you’re looking for a wedding or portrait photographer or are ready to start outsourcing your editing I am here to serve you.

What kind of photographer am I?

My job is not just a job, it’s fuel for my creative soul. I have never felt quite satisfied with the typical 9-to-5 job. I wanted a job where I could make a difference, serve others, and fan the flame of my creativity. Photography & photo editing has been the perfect fit for me. My approach to photography is a lifestyle approach; less posed, more candid, relaxed moments between you and your loved ones. We’ll walk through open fields, explore neaby forests, and sit down in coffee shops for your session. If you hire me for your wedding you can expect a few posed moments, but for the most part I’ll just be there to capture the day as it unfolds, photographing your special day in detail, just like it happened.

I’m not out there to cater to everyone. Instead, I desire to work with couples who want to have fun, who are up for running around, giving bear hugs, and not being afraid to be themselves. Who cherish the small things, believe in the importance of capturing life-long memories, and want a connection, with each other & their photographer. If this sounds like you then we might just be the perfect fit. Let’s chat! Drop me a message on my Contact page and I’ll be in touch.
