I’m Sammi

Glorified guest with a Camera !
8 years in the business and a lifetime to go. 

My goal in life is to capture real timeless emotions.

Picture this: No more cheesy smiles at the camera – instead, we're diving into the authentic, heartwarming moments that make your story unique. Sure, I might playfully suggest a rain run (okay, maybe not!), but the bottom line is, I'm absolutely obsessed with the idea of you looking back at your photos and falling head over heels in love all over again.

Together, we'll craft a photo adventure that not only captures your story but becomes an unforgettable chapter in it. Can't wait to bring that infectious enthusiasm to your photos – let's make some magic happen!

The best photographer in the game.

We searched high and low for a wedding photographer who had a certain style- not bright and airy. Creative. Natural. Someone whose photos speak a thousand words. Our Reverend referred us to Sammi, and when we looked at her Instagram, we fell in love. She was exactly what we were looking for and she has the absolute sweetest personality to top it all off. We met her in Chicago for our engagement photos and had so much fun with her. And the photos turned out amazing! Then she traveled to Indianapolis for our wedding. 

Not only did the other vendors compliment her to us, our own guests did. She has the kindest demeanor and truly made our day so much more special by capturing the moments we want to relive and her calming presence. We love and appreciate Sammi so much and highly recommend her to anyone who wants an extremely talented photographer to capture any special moment (she does more than just weddings!) in their life.
