I am a photographer servicing New York City, Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey, and the Hudson Valley. I believe I have a fresh take on wedding photography. In high school I learned how to develop film and begun the long standing affair with the darkroom which continued into college. In the earlier range of my collegiate academics, I was Pre-Law, but after switching into a Broadcasting and Media Telecommunications major, I was determined to go after something I believed in and use my education towards a job that would make me happy. My first job after graduation was Assisting and 2nd shooting for another small company and by the end of that season, I came to the realization that I could and would love to do this for my living.

I want to give my clients what they want even if they are a little unsure of exactly what that is. I want to create images that you will give as gifts to your grandmothers for their homes. I shoot for the dreamscape, not the conventional. The artifact book, not the album. I want to create signature experiences and images that are not romantic because thats what they're suppossed to be, but romantic because that is what you are. These aren't just my "clients" or my "jobs". These are your memories. This is what you look back on.
It would be my absolute greatest honor to document and communicate through images your Wedding Day, Engagement session or New York In Love session. I am in love with couples in love and I am blessed to be able to wake up in the morning refreshed by my life's work! Read less

She did a wonderful job. In all the madness of the day though, we did forget to get photos with a few key family members and I wish she had asked us before leaving that night if there was anyone else we needed! We weren't thinking clearly!

Samantha was amazing! She was incredibly professional and relaxed, which was exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. She really listened, especially when it came to some family photos that we wanted. We will cherish these always. The photos that she took of the two of us are just gorgeous. Plus, she captured every bit of beauty that our venue offered. Once it came to the reception, she blended in. It was like she wasn't even there! Thanks so much!

Samantha was the most amazing photographer we've ever worked with. She is extremely professional with a unique, creative eye, which resulted in the most beautiful, sensual photographs we've ever taken. My husband and I selected her for our engagement session as well as our wedding event, and we had absolutely NO regrets. I think her best trait is her calm demeanor; weddings can be ridiculously hectic and just having a photographer that remains so well grounded helps tremendously. When the dresses, makeup, and hair all come together, it's nice to have a photographer who can simply blend in and capture the essence of the day. At first we were a bit quirky in front of the camera, but with Samantha's guidance, she really loosened us up, and by the end of the day were tossed our "stress" coats and danced the night away....all thanks to Samantha! You are truly AMAZING!!!

Samantha is wonderful. She quickly booked our engagement shoot when we were short on time and was flexible with scheduling. The engagement pictures came out great. And I just got my wedding pictures and love them! They are a great mix of the formal, detail, and candid shots we wanted. She's very accessible if you have any questions, and she's professional, kind, and talented.

Sam is young, modern and romantic. You are sure to have an amazing experience. The more information that you provide Sam about yourselves (your likes and dislikes) and your vision the more she can tailor your photos to your desires. Just remember that it is your responsibility as the client to also do your homework and give Sam feedback that she can work with. Check out pinterest and other websites for ideas and then let Sam know what you have in mind. That is sure to be a recipe for success :) Enjoy!

Samantha was a pleasure to work with. She was professional, understanding and extremely helpful when it came to posing. She accomodated our change in schedule and our lateness due to getting stuck in traffic. Our photos were beautifully edited and we had a great variety. I would love to work with her again and would recommend her to all my friends and family.

Samantha did an outstanding job for us, her photos of our slightly non-convnetional wedding are fantastic. She was incredibly flexible and used her creativity to adapt to what we needed and took every opportunity to capture some great images of the whole event. I wouldn't hesitate in the slightest to recommend her. To top it all off her fee was very competitive, I have seen a lot of friends pay many times what she charged and not get the quality or service brought by Samantha, her photographs are our memories of our big day and they are perfect :)

Samantha was a fantastic photographer. She really worked with us to get the shots that we wanted to capture our special day. She had some really great ideas and was certainly flexible with our needs. I really did not want a photographer that was "in your face" so to speak and Samantha did an excellent job of capturing the moment without imposing. She got us our images very quickly after our wedding which was a wonderful thing to come home to after our honeymoon.
I would absolutely reccommend Samantha to a bride looking for a photographer that will work to accomodate all of your wants and needs for their special day!

Samatha was great to work with - photos were excellent and her prices were excellent. She pitched in at the last minute to photograph my wedding rehearsal dinner in the Hudson Valley. We were happy to have her! I would recommend her to anyone.

Great photographer, very flexible and accommodating to requests. The work in her portfolio was very representative of the quality of her work. 6 stars for professionalism, and for being patient with a camera-shy bride! A rare photo or two were a little granulated, but that's the only thing that wasn't perfect. And I certainly had enough photos to choose from to print out for family, so it didn't matter.

Summary: Fantastic to work with and great quality photography.
