I am an artist with a purpose.
If you asked me what I came into this world to do, I would say to love God, love people, and to live out loud. My photography, more than anything else in my life, makes me feel the closest to all three.
Anything vintage, my kitty named Mufasa, reading, wearing booties with almost everything, traveling, being a huge self love advocate, and someone who discovered her dream at 15.
I am a photographer because I have an endless amount of love for life and people. My favorite thing about this business is getting to know my brides. It is true that I am head over heels in love with all of them! My brides are not people who just need a photographer ‘for the day’, but have their homes filled with photos I have taken of them, their families, and other milestones. My brides are my only clients that I text back and forth with at any given moment and that is because I am here 24/7 for you. You are in the right place if you want more than just someone to show up to your wedding. There is so much more to your experience with me.
I'm just a girl obsessed with photography, mango juice, and bubble baths. Most days you can find me thrift shopping, reading, or with friends.
Its nothing unusual for me to send my assistant to the store for bobby pins, deodorant, or even just coffee! I've helped sew up dresses, serve food, and decorate. That is because I am not just there to photograph, I am there to make the day go by smoother, as well as document everything along the way.

Our couples are looking to create marriages more beautiful than their weddings. They are less concerned with the 'pretty' details and are most concerned with documenting all the emotions on their day. If this sounds like you, we would LOVE to chat!

Samia’s photography is absolutely AMAZING! When I first talked to Samia while looking for a wedding photographer, I was hooked! Her kind and professional personality showed through our phone call, and her ability to balance professionalism and friendliness was perfect! At the wedding Samia was more than just an amazing photographer, she consistently went above and beyond, helping my husband and I to make our wedding go as smoothly as possible. When we got our finished project, we were over the moon and couldn’t wait to show our friends and family! Months later and we still gush over the quality of the photos, and how she made the love we share tangible in the photos. I highly recommend Samia’s photography to anybody who is looking for not only amazing photos but for someone who clearly puts in 110% into something they are truly passionate about!

Samia instantly puts you at ease when you have a session with her! She made each of us feel relaxed at the shoot and made it a really enjoyable experience! The pictures she took turned out amazing and she really does have a gift of capturing great moments! Would TOTALLY recommend her to anyone!
"Samia instantly puts you at ease"
I absolutely LOVE Samia! I hired her to be the photographer for my engagement shoot and wedding. My husband and I are not picture people but she managed to make us comfortable with doing so. She has a great eye for photography and she is as sweet as pie. Samia has a quick turnaround for delivering pictures back to you and it is done with such quality. She also has great communication with you every step of the way. She delivered service beyond my expectations. I highly recommend her for any of your photo needs.

Samia really takes the time to think about every photo she snaps, and carries a number of different camera gadgets in her backpack to get any angle, near or far, that you can think of. Her easy going nature and professionalism takes away any nerves you might have in front of the camera. It also helps that she knows how to help pose and guide you!
I am definitely going to be booking Samia again in the future. I can't imagine having a photographer that is more knowledgeable, more sincere, or more passionate about the work she produces than her. Samia strives to make every session memorable and her happy clients prove it!
"Her easy going nature and professionalism takes away any nerves you might have"
Samia made us feel so comfortable and natural during our engagement photos. I felt like she really captured who we were as a couple. Her pricing was fair and she got our photos done very quickly. Samia is a true professional and I would recommend her for your next shoot, hands down the best experience I have ever had!

I am SO glad I chose Samia to have a photo-shoot with. Every single picture she took was simply beautiful! From the poses she inspired me to do to the editing of the pictures, everything was perfect. Young and beyond talented! Thank you, Samia. I will definitely book her for more photo-shoots in the future. Thanks so much again.

What a joy it was to work with Samia. She is so incredibly sweet and understanding that some people don't feel as comfortable behind the camera as others. She walks you through each step and each position she wants to you to do, and sometimes even lets you sneak a peek at the pictures. I would recommend her to anyone!! Serious talent in this wonderful girl.
