MarieSam Sanchez Photography is a husband wife photography and videography duo based in Southern California with a passion for traveling to different corners of the earth capturing some of life's most precious moments.


As a freelance Photographer and Journalist, I am jack-of-all-trades when it comes to telling a story through pictures, video or words. My passion for photography grew as I planned my own destination wedding just a few years ago. With blessings from above, my husband and I had the most amazing photographers document our entire wedding experience. The first time I saw our wedding pictures I sobbed ... like a baby :) These images brought me back to the most incredible day of our lives, and from that moment on, I knew that I wanted to give other couples the same type of happiness I felt when I looked at our images.

Our photography style is best described as modern, stylish, romantic and fashion inspired. We strive to capture the love in between the kisses in the form of beautiful smiles, passionate laughter and loving glances between sweethearts. Besides simply documenting your Wedding Day, we seek to tell the story of your love not only through our images but also through the words in our blog.

Whether you're in our area, across the country, or worlds away, it would be an honor for my husband and I to be a part of your special day!

I can't say enough good things about MarieSam and Tommy! Not only did they take our engagement and wedding pictures, I've had the amazing opportunity to do a couture shoot and boudoir shoot with MarieSam.

The first time I took pictures with MarieSam was a couture shoot. I've never taken professional pictures before, so I was a bit nervous at first. But, my nerves quickly disappeared. MarieSam is warm, fun, and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. The first time she took a picture and then showed it to me on her camera, I'm pretty sure I said "Holy sh*t!" out loud because I was amazed at what I saw.

After my first experience, I knew without a doubt that I wanted MarieSam for our engagement and wedding pictures. Our engagement pictures were taken at the Irvine Regional Park, and the pictures were gorgeous! We had so much fun. I love that MarieSam and Tommy are a husband and wife team. They're so in sync with each other. MarieSam takes the direct, close-up shots while Tommy acts as the "creeper" in the background taking candid and long-distance shots. They tell you how to pose and how to kiss so every picture turns out perfect. (Btw, Tommy is totally not creepy at all LOL)

I can't begin you to tell you how happy we are with the wedding pictures! THEY. WERE. EVERYTHING. They captured everything perfectly. I love how excited MarieSam gets about everything!

Lastly, the boudoir shoot was one of the most fun experiences I've ever had. At the recommendation of my hair stylist, I decided to do a boudoir shoot as a wedding gift to Joe I recommend EVERY WOMAN to do this at least one time in her life. I felt SO sexy. ;) It was tough to narrow down which pictures I wanted in the album because they all looked so good! On the wedding day before our first look, Tommy took Joe somewhere private and took pictures of Joe's reaction while he opened my gift. Joe did not see that coming. :)

We met MarieSam through and friend and I am so glad I found her!! I loved my friend's wedding photos and was looking for a photographer to document our growing family and booked her for a maternity session.

I have since hired MarieSam to for our newborn photo session and plan to hire her for all of our family milestones. I have absolutely loved every single moment she has captured of our sessions and love the energy she brings. She pays attention to those small details and has perfect timing for those awesome candid moments.

MarieSam is professional, dependable and very easy to work with. From the moment you contact her, she is responsive, and makes it easy to work with her. She even brings photo props to your sessions and gives you ideas on what to wear, locations, etc. Not to mentions, she has an awesome partner - Tommy, who is super talented behind the camera. I highly recommend MarieSam Photography for any of your photography needs, they are absolutely wonderful!

MarieSam and Tommy were great to work with! We really liked that MarieSam shoots up close and Tommy usually shoots from a distance- which provides for a variety of angles on the same shot. Having two photographers throughout the day really did help capture all of those special moments, both before the actual ceremony and then afterwards. The husband and wide couple are super friendly and easy to relate to and work with.

We had both Tommy and MarieSam at our wedding. They were our photographers for our engagement session, and we just loved them so much that we hired them again for our wedding even though our wedding was across the country! They're fun people who genuinely want to get the best shots for you at your event. They are great at directing us so that we don't look stiff and awkward in our photos. My husband and I had a lot of fun taking pictures. The best part is that there are two of them, so we were able to get the same shots from two different perspectives. I LOVED all the photos.

They are a Godsend for a bride & groom on their special day!

The overall quality and professionalism MarieSam photography gave during our entire event was awesome. They took wonderful heart felt photos of my special day.

MarieSam and her husband Tommy were so easy to work with. My now husband and I are the most awkward and stiff people in front of a camera. However, MarieSam was able to make the impossible happen, and made the photos of us look phenomenal. Even our family members were impressed and its hard to impress a filipino family, because they always see the negative in things. *just saying*

Anyways, their great down to earth people and are absolutely worth every penny spent and then some. Would recommend to anyone.

I was initially VERY nervous about our couple's session. Neither me nor my boyfriend had really done anything like this before. I had so many questions: What type of clothes should I wear? How should I do my hair? Where should we go? Props? MAKEUP?!?

MarieSam skillfully guided us and helped turn something that could have been terribly awkward and painstaking into a fun, unforgettable photo-shoot! She offered simple and kind advise that soothed my anxieties and really helped me prepare for our photo-shoot. Long story short, it COULD be weird kissing in front of a stranger (one with a camera, no less), but MarieSam and Tommy are so sweet and personable that it was easy just to be ourselves and enjoy the moment!

I could not be happier with our experience and pictures! MarieSam has a keen eye for photo ops that really highlight your personality and well representative of your personality! Highly recommended!
