Arms Up Photography
Samantha is a wonderful photographer and person. She is so talented, and we love her creative and candid style! It's very clear she cares about her clients and works hard to get to know their preferences and make sure they will be happy with the finished product. Our engagement pictures turned out beautifully, and I can't wait to see the magic she'll work with the wedding pictures! It's important to have a wedding photographer who not only takes great pictures, but who you also like being around since she will be there all day with you. We definitely enjoyed being around Samantha; she was VERY helpful when I was getting ready and even got out on the dance floor with us when it was sort of empty! I feel like she changed the whole tone of our wedding for the better just by being there with her calm and sunny personality. I would enthusiastically recommend Samantha to any bride (or anyone wanting great pictures!).
My pictures are beautiful and Sam is absolutely amazing! No way can I narrow down my pictures to pick from them! Absolutely recommend her! I was able to look at my pictures and relive all the emotion from that day! She captures the moments while you're not even looking! I will use her again and again!
Please understand me when I say that Samantha Renn is THE best. Seriously! From our awesome engagement session, to our recent wedding, Sam truly impressed us with her talent and her eye for detail. She's very professional, but at the same time, laid back and... real. Her vibe is a "cool chick who happens to take amazing photos" as opposed to buttoned-up and super formal.
She's able to "see" the most wonderful moments and capture them in beautiful and interesting ways. Going through my wedding photos introduced me to nuances of that day that I will cherish forever. As long as I'm in STL, she'll be our photog for all of our great life events. Thanks, Sam!
Samantha is amazing. I was so impressed with her from the time we had our consultation to the time she handed me my finished album. Her professionalism is unmatched. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to have a wonderful, easy going day with truely remarkable pictures to have forever. Thank you so much Samantha.
Samantha is ‘One in a Million’ in her abilities as a photographer. She is a very unobtrusive photographer. Matt and I first met Samantha for an engagement/boudoir session. After walking away from our meeting, we trusted implicitly that she was our photographer. We had previously met two other photographers, but Matt and I got a bad initial reaction to their demeanor as well as their quality of work. We are so thankful to have found Samantha. She allowed us to feel at ease and wasn’t at all bossy about ‘posing shots’ and such. She has a natural finesse that encompasses her and it shines through her work. She was absolutely fabulous to work with. She is very easy to get along with, flexible, and more importantly, extremely communicative in making sure all needs are met. She is the nicest, most professional person you’d ever work with. Sam made Matthew and I feel right at ease during the engagement session and for the wedding. Matthew and I couldn’t be more pleased at the overall quality of our pictures; they are absolutely beautiful and exactly what we wanted.
All I can say is OMG. I found her on craigs list. What a find!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my pic!!! I didn't want up tight pics. She captured moments that I don't even remember. The price is the most resonable!!!! My fam and friends are all stating that they wish they had her for there wedding or family functions. I will be using her in the future for some "personal shots". SAM keep up the good work. You are going to go very far with your talent!!!
Samantha did a wonderful job. She was able to provide a photography package that catered to our specific needs. The outdoor photo shoot was almost rained out, but she was able to show up with only 45 minutes notice in order to take advantage of the clearing skies. I loved the variety of candid and posed shots. She is very easy to work with, and has a lot of great ideas. She was also responsive to our suggestions and comments. I would highly recommend Samantha to any bride.
Samantha (Arms Up Photography) handled the photography for our June 2010 wedding and was AMAZING to work with! I was planning the wedding from out of town and she was so flexible helping to make me comfortable with the details when must of our correspondence was through email. From the first contact and helping to build a photography package customized to exactly what we wanted included, to the editing of photos after the wedding Samantha was incredibly flexible with my requests and quick to respond to all them. The pictures turned out absolutely beautiful and were edited to provide a great variety of aristic and naturally beautiful images.
I could not be more pleased with my wedding photos and even though my Husband and I do not live in St. Louis, we will definately be calling her again for family photos in the future.
I chose to use Arms Up Photography after they were recommended to me by a friend and I couldn't have been happier with the results. Samantha was creative and flexible and a joy to work with. The photos turned out great and I was pleased with her attention to detail and the effort she put into making the memories of our special day a success. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer at an affordable price.
Arms up did my wedding photography. The pictures turned out awesome!! The picture colors were very nice. The scenery and the way Sam had us take our pics really made the pictures turn out nice. I recieved the CD of pictures very soon. The pricing was very reasonable. She was preofessional and showed up on time. I would surely recommend her. It was a great pleasure working with Arms Up.
Samantha is absolutely amazing...and a joy to work with. Once you meet her you will love her. She is very professional, and has an amazing gift for photography. I would highly recommend her to any bride.
