SAN FRANCISCO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Thank you so much for reaching out about wedding photography. Your wedding is such a monumental day and I don’t take the honor of photographing it lightly. As a fine art film photographer my focus is on capturing genuine beautiful moments with a timeless feel. My style combines posed, directed and candid images from getting ready all the way to saying goodbye.

FAQS

WHY FILM

Film stocks were created long ago to match the colors we see. Digital editing trends have come and gone over the years but film stocks have remained the same. When you hire a digital photographer who doesn’t edit true to life, their editing may go out of style eventually. Film images don’t need to be edited other than minor tweaks, their colors and tone are true to life so you can rest assured that you will love your wedding images forever. Film is also incredibly forgiving and the images it creates are dreamy and flattering for all skin types and tones. You’ll be left with timeless and beautiful images that you will appreciate for years to come.

DO YOU SHOOT ALL FILM

I shoot a mix of film and digital for weddings. I prefer film but when it gets dark or if there are any difficult lighting situations, I shoot digital. We will go over options for where to shoot portraits to make sure we can get the best lighting and images.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SESSIONS

Absolutely! If you are located outside of San Francisco, reach out and I will give you a quote for travel.

WHEN DO WE GET TO SEE OUR PICTURES

It will take me between 6-8 weeks to get your images ready. Once your images are ready I will contact you to schedule your ordering appointment where you’ll be able to see all your images and relive your favorite day!

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE ORDERING APPOINTMENT

Once your images are ready I’ll reach out to book an ordering appointment. You’ll get to see all your images and purchase products using your credit. It’s important to me that you have something tangible from your wedding day for you to have displayed in your home whether that’s on your wall or your coffee table. Our meeting is a great way to get your images off the computer and into your hands as well as get a second pair of eyes to help you decide what to purchase. 

WHAT PRODUCTS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE ORDERING APPOINTMENT

At the appointment you will be able to purchase albums and framed prints. The albums are handcrafted and will last for a lifetime and the framed prints are museum quality. I have a range of styles and every product I offer is available only to professional photographers so you can be assured you are getting the highest quality products that you wouldn’t have access to otherwise. My previous experience working in high end art galleries has helped hone my eye for design and I love creating albums and gallery walls to complement your home.

KIND WORDS

"Just superb! Samantha was beyond easy to work with and has a very talented eye for catching simple moments of grace and chemistry between loved ones. She was helpful in preparation of our shoot (which made life easy on our end) and working with her during the shoot was a breeze. Bonus: she's fabulous with kids! Her talent shooting with real film is refreshing in a world of digital, photoshopped images. We love her natural, light, crisp style. Our family will cherish our photographs from our session for years to come. Thank you for your beautiful work Samantha!"

"Samantha was THE consummate professional photographer! From initial contact through final photo delivery she helped guide us through each step with helpful explanations and advice, making the entire experience extremely enjoyable. The intimacy of her film photos are remarkable, and she was also great with our saluki! I've never seen him take to someone as quickly as he did her; she was great with him and the photos speak for themselves. I HIGHLY recommend asking Samantha to help you with your photoshoot!"

KIND WORDS

“Samantha was a joy to work with! My fiancé and I discovered Samantha on Instagram while we were searching for photographers in Japan. We had a wonderful experience from meeting over email to receiving our final images. Samantha happily answered all our questions and took the time to get to know us (even though we live in different parts of the world). We love the images she captured of us and can't wait to share them at our wedding. Thanks Samantha!“

“One of the absolute highlights of our trip to Japan was our photoshoot with the incredibly talented Samantha. Marcus and I have always wanted to have photos taken of us on an international adventure since traveling is one of our favorite things to do together - this opportunity to have Samantha capture us in our element was a dream! I can't even begin to pick my top 5 favorites. Thank you Samantha for making the best travel souvenir possible!“
