Family portraits include an hour at a location of your choice or the option of my studio in Northeast Minneapolis. Throughout the year, I host mini sessions at select locations, and will release the dates on my social media with booking details. Keep your eye out for fall minis! Upon booking, you will receive a welcome & outfit guide to help you make the best out of your session.
Sammy as your main photographer
Timeline review and assistance
While I mainly work out of Minnesota, I have been given the opportunity to work out of Chicago, New York, California, St. Lucia, and Hawaii. I love traveling and will go the distance to capture weddings, and portrait sessions. Custom quotes for destinations are available upon request.
I take a limited number of weddings and portrait clients each year in order to personalize each experience. Please get in touch with me to see if we are a good fit! I'd love to hear about your vision and meet you.

With over eight years of professional experience as a wedding photographer, have peace of mind knowing that your wedding day will be carefully curated through story-telling and documented effortlessly with love. Each couple will receive a thorough pre-wedding consultation with me where I will get to know you two better, your vision, and walk you through your wedding day timeline. On the wedding day, your only job is to soak it all in, and I will do my part to document all of the keepsake memories without pulling you out of them.
Newborn sessions begin at $500 and are 90 minutes. Included is a welcome guide to help you prepare for your session and what to expect. You have the option of doing it in your home or at my studio. My sessions are very journalistic, comfortable, and natural. I want to make your experience memorable, and also capture timeless and beautiful moments of your family. We will have fun, take breaks if needed, and enjoy every minute of the session!
INQUIRE ABOUT YOUR DAY
So you like what you see and would like to chat further? I would love to meet you, hear about your vision, and know your love story. It's always a good idea to make sure you connect with your wedding vendors, since they play such a huge part of your special day. It's important for you to get to know me as much as I get to know you. For our initial conversation, we would have a brief and casual chat over a virtual meeting to see if we're a good fit.

If your collection includes an engagement session, I will get in touch to start planning it. An engagement session allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. While they’re great for save-the-dates, I've taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.

This is the fun part! Leading up to the wedding, I'll collaborate with your planner or yourself to make sure your priorities are honored. We'll draft out the timeline of events, and discuss the details in depth to make sure it feels good. Here, we'll also discuss your shot list and the formal portraits of the day. We'll review the timeline and discuss any concerns well in advance of the day.

The day has finally come. All of your details and timeline are finalized, and it's time to celebrate your big day! Your only job is to soak it all in, and let your vendors take care of the rest. I'll arrive on-site to greet you, and begin orchestrating picture-perfect moments from the getting ready photos to the partying on the dance floor. My number one advice is to take pauses throughout the day, and just take every moment in.

Within the first week, you will receive a few sneak peeks of your day. Depending on the season, it will typically take 6-8 weeks to deliver your full gallery. You will receive an update as we get close to delivering your photos, and an email with the gallery link once it's ready! Your deliverables include a private online gallery with downloadable digitals, and a USB package delivered to your home.
