Hello! I'm Samantha, and I'm a storyteller. I am continually inspired by the love stories that couples share and the uniqueness of those stories. From engagements and portraits, to a wedding day, my goal is to capture the details and moments that fully tell the story of each couple through honest and authentic images.

Created from a dream, inspired by love of all forms, and driven by the
belief that every love has a story to tell. Let me tell your story...

Because I photograph in a very relational way, I strive to really get to know each couple before their big day. I love creating natural poses that allow couples to interact with one another, leading to intimate moments and in turn, amazing images. I feel so blessed to be able to call a lot of my couples friends by the time their big day arrives. 

My work is not only inspired by the beauty and authenticity of love, but also by all the little things that sometimes go unnoticed...the colors, the lighting, the sense of place. I take a fine art approach to blend all of these details into a cohesive collection of artistic images that truly reflect you and your day. 


I am a Midwest girl at heart and am proud to call this place home for so many reasons. I reside in Madison, Wisconsin with my oh-so-handsome husband, Bryan, who also happens to be my main assistant! When we aren't shooting couples in love, you can find us snuggling our little kitty, Gracie, exploring the Northwoods with our family and friends, hitting up the local farmer's market, sipping on coffee on the front porch of our new home, or enjoying a movie night.
