"...The first time I talked with Sam on the phone, she was energetic and genuinely interested in Joe and I; she wanted to know our story and what led us to soon-to-be marriage...We spent a decent amount of time going over the details, and on the day of our wedding, I have not one complaint! Sam and Matt captured our wedding in such a beautiful and perfect way. They were on top of all the things we had requested and were flexible with us throughout the day."

KIND WORDS

"Matt and Sam are kind, genuine, talented, gifted, intentional and wonderful photographers!"

"I first met Samantha and Matt when they photographed my sister's wedding. I was impressed not only by Samantha's gorgeous photography but also by how organized and efficient she was on the day of the wedding. When my husband and I got engaged, Samantha was the very first vendor we hired for our wedding!... Samantha and Matt make you feel comfortable during your photo sessions by helping you pose in positions that feel natural and by making you laugh...'m so grateful my sister introduced me to their work years ago, and we can't wait for future photos sessions of our growing family!"

"SAMANTHA AND MATT ARE EXTREMELY THOUGHTFUL AND PASSIONATE ABOUT THE WORK THEY DO AND WORTH EVERY PENNY."

"Samantha & Matt are exceptional photographers; truly talented, thoughtful, and professional. Our photographs were more than we could have ever imagined. Chad and I are playful and silly, but affectionate and mushy when we think no one is looking. They captured our love beautifully. Chad is painfully uncomfortable in front of any kind of audience or camera lens, but felt at ease with Sam & Matt's ideas and direction from the day we met. Sam 's presence is comforting and genuine. She knows her craft. She has great style and a warm heart. I loved having her around present while we all got ready the day of our wedding. We will always recommend Sam and Matt!"

"they captured our love beautifully!

I can't thank Sam and Matt enough for being our photographers!"

"WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE PERFECT PHOTOGRAPHER TEAM, IT'S SAM AND MATT!"

"Samantha and Matt are the absolute sweetest! They were very flexible with our crazy schedules and they were very communicative. Samantha is basically the only reason we were even remotely close to being on time for anything on our wedding day. She kept an eye on the time and ushered us from one thing to the next. She is very organized and her pictures are stunning! I've never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day and Sam and Matt caught that in the pictures. They paid attention to details and captured all the pictures that I wanted and then some."

"they are a dream to work with and i would highly recommend them!"

Sam and Matt went above and beyond to take care of us! They are extremely organized, which was a blessing for this HIGHLY disorganized bride. The turnaround time felt almost instantaneous and their photos are gorgeous! We are going to treasure the candid moments that they captured and cannot thank them enough for being such a special part of our big day. I absolutely recommend them to any couple!"
