Hello,

I am photographer Sam Rodriguez and I would like to congratulate you on your engagement!

I tell the story of your wedding in an unscripted, photojournalistic fashion. This allows me to capture every detail, moment and emotion that occurs on your wedding day while including the traditional formal shots.

I believe I should capture you, enjoying your wedding day as you planned it. For this reason, I am as unobtrusive as possible. I am really fun and energetic and I also develop rapport with your guest quickly. This allows me to capture their best reactions.

My packages are truly unique and I am unable to describe them on this page but I am able to meet you at your home or at a location of your choice to further discuss your needs.

This I can tell you... YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

I have packages for every budget and I am offering a FREE ENGAGEMENT SESSION.

I look forward to meeting you and your fiancé soon... : )

Sam has such a talent and we can't thank him enough for telling our Wedding Story.

Where do I even begin with Sam. If I could give him a higher rating, I would. I've known Sam and his work for 4 years now, having met him when he did the photography for my cousin's wedding. I loved the way he blended into the wedding, with the guests, and everything going on--I remember at one point thinking he left the reception! He blends in and you don't even realize he is there.

Fast forward 3 years to my own wedding planning, I knew Sam would be the first photographer I called. As it turns out, he was the only one I called! He came to my parent's house and showed us all of his work. He shared personal anecdotes about how he captures moments, the way he works, and how he tells your wedding story.

My fiance and I had our engagement shoot at Barnegat Light on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. We were very awkward for the first few shots, but Sam has a natural ability to make you completely relaxed, and he captured some incredible moments. He was spontaneous, and as the light changed, he knew just where to move us, how to position us...it was incredible. By the end of the shoot we actually forgot he was there. Which is saying something since it was just the three of us! The pictures came out beautifully, and it was a lot of fun.
On our wedding day we had both Sam and Miguel. They are wonderful to work with! I felt so comfortable and relaxed working with both of them. They blended right in with my family and friends and I truly forgot they were there. I never felt imposed upon, or pulled away from my family in order to get certain photos. Our formal shots were done very quickly and efficiently. His goal is for you to enjoy your wedding day, with your new spouse, while he captures every moment. And he does it beautifully. My only regret is that I cannot have Sam attend all of my family functions and vacations. He has such a talent.

Sam photographed my wedding this past wedding and I honestly can not speak highly enough of him!!! He was the first vendor I booked for my whole wedding. I had been stalking his work online for some time and then met him at an open house. I was planning on booking him just based on his work alone but then I met him and could not be more pleased at how awesome he was in person. He was so fun and fit in with all of us so well. I truly enjoyed having him with me the day of the wedding while getting ready!! He was so relaxed with all of us and really had a calming effect on me, as well. He had beautiful ideas for pictures and did not make us do anything cheesy. My husband really appreciated how he was efficient and didn't make us spend a ton of time doing poses since our cocktail hour was being held while we took our formal shots. I'm sure he would accommodate every bride's wishes for how many formal shots to take but he was very receptive to our desire to focus more on "action" shots. I was also so impressed about how he was "everywhere" during our reception. At one point my husband's friends lifted him and I into the air and I look up to see that Sam has sprinted up the stairs to take an action shot from above the scene. He is truly a joy to work with and from the preview of the shots he took, I am sure we will be beyond pleased with the final product. I absolutely HIGHLY recommend Sam!!!!

Sam was absolutely amazing!! When we first met with him, just looking at his work, I knew he was the perfect photographer for our special day! When we had our engagement session, Sam was fun and easy to get along with, and made us both feel comfortable in front of the camera. On the day of the wedding, he spent the whole day with us and fit right in with our group. Just catching a few glimpses of the shots he got that day, I know that our final results will be incredible! Sam was fun, energetic, and creative, and everyone at our reception was impressed with him! I have recommended him to others, and I will definitely continue to do so!

Sam was by far the best photographer that we could have chosen for our wedding. He not only had taken exceptional photos from our engagement session but as well as our wedding. Every single relative and friend that has seen our photos has said that they are the best pictures from a wedding that they have seen. He captured each moment perfectly - from getting ready, to walking down the isle, to saying our goodbyes to our guests.

He was at my house over an hour before we requested him which I ended up being so thankful for because their are so many moments that occurred that I most likely would not have remembered if he was not there (trust me - your wedding day flies by). He made both myself and all of my bridesmaids feel so comfortable the entire time which created such natural pictures.

No matter what time I would send Sam an email in regards to when we would receive our pictures he would respond almost immediately, not only for receiving the website to look at our pictures but in regards to our album - which brings me to my next point... the album that Sam designed is by far the most beautiful album that I have ever seen from a wedding. He has done such an amazing job with our wedding photos that I have referred him to every person that I know that has gotten engaged.

5 stars is not enough for every single category - he went above and beyond what my husband and I could have ever imagined. We cannot thank Sam enough.

Sam was amazing! He was there from early in the morning and late into the night. He captured every great moment of our wedding. Everyone at the wedding expressed how he "felt like part of the family." He joined in on all the fun as well as told the story of our wedding. He didn't miss a shot and he didn't get in the way of us having fun at our own wedding. He just let us be us. There was no pausing for a photo because he was so on top of it.
His pictures were unique and very well executed. I have looked at a lot of his work prior and I didn't feel as if any picture was the same from any wedding. He has the "it" factor. He really just made the day go smoothly and I didn't feel rushed getting pictures.
Our engagement session was so much fun! That is when I realized how great a photographer he was because he loves his job and isn't afraid to show it. Our engagements came out beautiful, yet fun and wild!
I just received my wedding album in a timely fashion and we are completely in love. Everyone states "This is such a different wedding album." I like how he wasn't traditional. But he did listen to everything I wanted.
He was great. I will definitely hire him again once the babies start to come to get our maternity photos.

We loved having Sam as our wedding photographer. He was easy to work with/ make plans with, and took perfect pictures. He was able to capture the night without too many posed pictures, which is exactly what we wanted. He had a great eye for spots around our venue for pictures. The value of the package we got was also very good, the album is beautiful and he put it all together for us! Everyone has raved about my wedding pictures and Sam! We recommend him hands down.

Sam is amazing! He makes you feel super comfortable and helps you enjoy your wedding day. He even travels to meet with you for your consultation. Sam went out of his way to shoot our engagement session at Penn State where we got engaged. He truly has fun while he is shooting and you can see his passion for the Art! My husband and I were so happy that we went with Sam. He did not disappoint us! On our wedding morning, I asked Sam to show up around 10, and he was there way before to make sure he did not miss anything! He even helped clip my eyelash when my friend was terrified to cut it! He is a man of his word and many traits! He is very patient with animals too, which was a huge plus since my rescue dog is afraid of anyone new. He was able to get some adorable pictures of him too! Sam cares about his clients and makes sure the job gets done right. We are excited to hear that friends and family will be booking Sam for future events. Also, once my husband and I decide to start our family, we will defiantly be calling Sam to shoot our first pictures! Don't hesitate to spend the money because you will not be disappointed in the end! Sam is not only talented, but a personable person who wants you to tell your story while capturing the special moments that mean the most to you!

I wish I could give more than 5 stars for the rating! Sam is truely one of a kind. He is such a talented photographer and captured every special moment of our wedding day. We had a lot of fun doing bridal party shots and our friends and family loved how he was constantly on top of everything going on to make sure he got all the best pictures. He also knows all of the best places to take artistic shots in the local area. Our wedding was in Bethlehem, PA and downtown Bethlehem as well as the historic Bethlehem Steel made for great opportunities for our pictures! I was so incredibly pleased when he surprised us with getting the pictures back to us so quickly, and it is so hard to choose which one will be our Thank You card! They are all amazing and we are so happy on our choice of photographer. No one could have captured our memories the way he did. I recommend Sam / SR Wedding Story to EVERY bride! He is also so flexibile and reachable, when I had questions of where we should go for the pictures I just gave him a call or email and received a response right away. He not only does Lehigh Valley, but all of PA, NJ and NYC, as well as destination weddings!

Even though his is my cousin's husband, Sam really keep everything deeply proffesional. It' s not just a photography session day and the best pictures in the most important moments of life but a whole day experience to remember. He will make sure you won't notice he is there so the most natural pictures will come out. When I saw the pictures the "happening" of the most important details and the ones a bride maybe didn't notice is there as if you're watching a video of your wedding/event.

We could not be happier with our selection of S.R. Wedding Story as our wedding photographer. Sam was a pleasure to work with - from our initial meeting, the engagement session, and all the way through to receiving our wedding album. He is very easy to get along with and very professional. Somehow Sam got the most amazing pictures of the wedding without us even seeing him on the dance floor taking pictures. He blended in perfectly, yet caputed all of our moments. When we received our wedding album in the mail, which Sam designed, we were able to relive our wedding all over again. The wedding album truly captures the essence of our wedding and is not generic in any way shape or form - it is completely us! Both of our families were very impressed with Sam's work and continue to tell us what a great job he did! We are having such a hard time choosing which pictures to display in our house - but that is only because Sam was able to capture the night so perfectly! We could not be happier with our choice in a wedding photographer. Make sure you check out the pictures on his website - his work truly speaks for itself. And once you receive your wedding pictures you will truly be able to appreciate how he is able to preserve one of the most important days of your life in the photographs. Thank you Sam, for all of your hard-work. We could not be happier with our wedding pictures and the way you were able to perfectly tell OUR STORY!

WOW is the best way to describe the pictures we got from Sam for our September wedding. As an 'older' couple, we really wanted to capture the celebration of love we expected our wedding to encompass. From the garden party theme to the beautiful sun shining down, to the hebrew national hotdogs and the cupcake tiers, to our parents being able to walk us down the aisle...Sam captured ALL OF IT!!!!! He was unobtrusive, professional, and saw the inner beauty in every moment of our most wonderful day. He truly tells the story, not the posed and overdone types of pictures that other photographers think you want, but those moments that brought a tear to the eye. My mother has dementia and most times is blank...but Sam found her twinkle. My groom dancing with his mother and then sharing a private mother son moment..he caught if forever on film. My flower girl looking on with wonder as we cut the cake...beautiful. My sisters grinning that secret smirk at the chuppah...our ring bearer collecting the leftover programs. And my father, my wonderful father as he arrived to give me words of encouragement. THOSE are the moments you want, forever. And I will cherish those moments Sam captured for our life time. Thank you, Sam...from the bottom of our hearts...thank you for allowing us to relive our wonderful day!

We found Sam on a wedding website and loved his "classic" style.We called him and were able to set up an interview only a few days later.
We learned Sam isn't only a great photographer but a talented artist as well . Part of his package was that he puts together your wedding book the way he see's it and we absolutly LOVED how he did ours. It was the extra touches he put in it that my husband and I would have never thought of if we were picking the pictures ourselves.As quick as the day went for us he was able to capture every single special moment. We also had him do an engagement session for us and seeing the results of those was how we knew we had made a great choice choosing him.
Sam has a great personality and was very fun to work and we would highly reccommend him for anyone planning their wedding!!!!!

We met Sam at a Bridal show (had a blast) and after we saw his work, we were positive he's exactly whom we have been looking for. He provided excellent communication e-mail, phone, and house visits. We have met several photographers and none were as passionate or professional like Sam. He spent the whole day with the Bridal party; morning and well into the night....he has such a great sense of humor and personality. We had a little issue with my uncle (family photographer wanting to take pics for his profession) and Sam handled the situation discreetly making sure my wedding went smoothly! The bridal party and family thought Sam was not only professional but tons of fun, like my husband would say "Sam's the MAN"!! It was such an honor to meet a great guy like Sam.....we are very blessed because of his work and talent. Thank you sooooo much! Happy thanksgiving and Christmas from our family to yours

He is extremely professional and did everything he could to make us happy. We couldn't be more pleased with everything we received. The album is beautiful and will be treasured for life. I recommended him to one of my best friends for her wedding, and look forward to sharing her day with Sam in the very near future. My husband and I highly recommend Sam for your upcoming wedding!

I do not even know where to begin with this review. Sam Rodriguez is truly one of the top photographers in the country and certainly the best photographer I'm the north east.  Sam's professionalism is beyond anyone I have met throughout my wedding journey, and his quality and uniqueness of his work exceeds every other photographer out there! Not only did we use Sam as our wedding photographer, but he included our engagement session with our package. The engagement photo session on the boardwalk was a total blast! Our engagement photos have went viral, and now became the face of Morey's Pier in Wildwood, New Jersey where the photos were taken. Sam made my husband and I feel so comfortable and natural that we forgot the camera was even there! He also drove 3 hours out of his way, through the busy shore traffic just for our photo session. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, our wedding photos exceeded our every expectation! Less than two weeks after the wedding, we were in shock to see all 500 of our wedding photos! We could not believe that Sam was able to do such an incredible, meticulous job editing our photos in such a short period of time! Less than 2 months after our wedding, our wedding album, proofs in custom box, cd in custom case, and an extra surprise gift photo book from Sam arrived! Everyone who has seen our photos and albums cannot believe how unique and high quality Sam's photos are! The layout of our wedding album was so distinctively "us" that it really made me realize that Sam truly took the time to get to know me and my husband on a personal basis, not just as a business relationship. I really could go on, and on for hours about how Sam Rodriguez truly is "the" photographer you need to tell your story, but I think the best thing to do is check out his portfolio and let his work speak for itself! Look no further... you will never find a better photography company than SRWedding Story! 

Sam, we are looking forward to have you tell our story throughout our many exciting adventures to come!

With thanks & love,
Joseph & Betsy Kohler

A few minutes into my initial meeting with Sam, I knew that he was going to be my photographer. I had already found his work from my sisters wedding on his website and I wanted those modern, unique, GQ, DECACHE photos.

Sam blew us away with the photos. They were just like we wanted them official. He has an amazing eye and perspective. He was also so fun to work with on the day of.

You only have one chance to capture those moments on your wedding day, make sure you get Sam and your photos will be able to look back and enjoy the day all over again.

We researched many photographer's websites before we fell in love with the timelessness and natural look of Sam Rodriguez's work. We met him at a bridal expo and were instantly impressed by the attention he gave as we explained our vision of our big day.

Unlike other pompous photographers at the show, Sam was not arrogant, but proud of his work. It was obvious that 1) he loves to tell stories with his photography and 2) he loves to make people happy.

It was easy to work with Sam--nothing complicated whatsoever. He was unobtrusive and kind to all our guests.

As for the pictures... they speak for themselves really-a perfect blend of photojournalism and art. We love Sam's work and it re-tells our story exactly the way we remember it, every time. We are very grateful for all his hard work during, and after, our wedding. THANK YOU SAM!

P.s. - We would recommend S. R. Wedding Story to all our friends and family and in fact-we did! My brother will have his unique story told by Sam in November. Can't wait to see it!

For our wedding day we knew we were looking for a great photographer to take our pictures because we knew that these pictures would be the things we would look at for the rest of our lives. We had gone to our friends wedding in September of 2010 and we meet Sam with SR Weddingstory and from the beginning of the day to the end of the night Sam was such a great guy very friendly made you feel very comfortable and relaxed. We then looked into Sam once we started planning our wedding and we knew that we wanted him to tell the story of our wedding with his pictures. We meet with him to settle everything and we had the best feeling that he was going to be it because he looked at me and said the highlight of my day is when the bride and her girls are getting ready! Which we were looking for photos of that too cause its something we both don’t get to share together. Now we can have that part of our wedding day to keep forever also. Sam has an artistic angle in his work and it was just what we were looking for and with that we knew we had made the right decision. Our wedding was supposed to be outside but due to the monsoon rain that day we were forced to move inside. Sam stayed calm and did his best to get as many great pictures as possible he even agreed to do a few outdoor rain photos to really embrace what kind of day our wedding day was. He is very passionate about what he does and it shows in the photos he takes we would highly recommend SR Weddingstory to any one! Tamara & Matt Tirpak

Words can't really describe how awesome Sam was as our photographer. He is great at what he does. Having our wedding at the end of February meant a pretty boring and dead landscape. My wife and I were worried about how the pictures would come out because of that, but Sam told us there was nothing to worry about that he had it all figured out. He was highly recommended by my sister and a friend of my sister's so I felt confident that I could rely on him. We chose for the pictures to be at a nearby park and Sam had the coolest ideas I must say. Everyone liked him and enjoyed taking pictures. The outcome of the pictures were fantastic I was amazed with his ideas and how great they came out. I'm very camera shy and uncomfortable around picture taking yet I looked natural in all of them... needless to say my wife looked amazing! Aside from how skillful he is, Sam is a great person to be around. We had a great time at the wedding, shared many laughs... and drinks and had a great time. I've already recommended him to my friend and he's looking forward to having Sam as his photographer. I will recommend him every chance I get.

Best Photographer Ever!! Glad I picked him! Sam is on time, thorough, has a great artistic eye, thinks about the photos he's taking (very straticgic now looking at the results), is well capable of producing an album and shots you'll absolutely love (but allows for your input within the process if you'd like a change or modification), communicates well and is extremely professional but he has fun at the same time.

SR wedding story will without a doubt make your wedding the best day EVER!!! they were with me the entire day capturing every moment. they are inobtrusive, letting the moments happen and unfold naturally rather than forcing you into a million posed and fake shots. the pictures came out amazing.
even in large family shots, which at past weddings, i have seen take hours, took them mere minutes. it was really incredible!
i would book them again without hesitation. Contact them for your wedding, you will be so happy you did!!

I just received my wedding album, we are very delighted and happy with the final product. We had a blast with Samuel, and the turn around time of his work was quick in comparison with other photographers that my friends worked with.
And he truly did tell a story with our wedding album. Thanks Sam!!!

HIGHLY recommend this photographer you MUST book him if you’re looking for the best!!! He delivers exactly what he promises in a timely manner.
There was so much to worry about on our wedding day, I can honestly say my photographer was not one of them. From the initial consultation to the final product, this photographer has excelled all of our expectations. He really does have a vision when taking his magazine type photographs and brings your wedding to life through them. We have convinced all of our friends that are getting married to book him and all of them have raved about him once they see their pictures. In the end all you have is memories and SRWedding Story really does tell it exactly how it happened through photographs.
We have continued to use him for our family portraits and are pleased with the result each and every time!! Thanks for making our day unforgettable and look forward to continue working with you to capture each special event in our lives.

Sam is awesome! His work is very creative and your album will be a unique story of your wedding. Sam was amazing on the day of our wedding. Everyone loved Sam and we were all so comfortable with him. He showed up early and even offered to Bring coffee:) Sam really captured the love and happiness of our special day. I had a unique situation with having to wear a boot under my dress due to an injury. Sam did an amazing job with taking pictures so it was not crazy obvious, but still included some great shots of that sucker since it was still a party of our story and it neede to be in a few pics. I would def. recommend Sam!!
