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 couples. My couples are not people who just need a photographer ‘for the day’, but later have their homes filled with photos I have taken of them long after their weddings. 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.

Samia shot my wedding to Elaine Smith Genser on July 5, 2019. She did a stellar job – we could not have been happier with the beautiful photographs that she took with her professional eye or the grace with which she managed our friends and family. But the entire process of working with her was also a real pleasure. She was easy to hire, with many different portfolios of her past work online and she answered all our questions quickly and fully. Once we hired her, she met Elaine for lunch at the venue to plan out the photography for our big day. She was very sweet, sending us a bunch of empty picture frames for our new house and a Starbucks gift card for Valentine’s Day. And everything worked incredibly smoothly on our wedding day, with the plan executed flawlessly. Unlike other seasoned photographers who often like to make clients pay per print or exorbitant added fees for the high-resolution photos, Samia provides them all included in her package, without a watermark, to her clients. She was superfast too, providing us a well organized online gallery of more than 850 of the finished photos within a week after our wedding. In short, Samia was a rock star! We will definitely hire her again and recommend her very highly for anyone looking for a fabulous photographer.

Had the best moments captured by Samia during my wedding. Not only is she talented with the work she provides, but she is also kind and thoughtful throughout the whole process. She doesnt just take photos, she makes you feel important and goes the extra mile to help in any kind of way. She provides a scene for you and your loved one and takes those candid moments that just come so natural rather than posed out. I had the best time with her at my wedding and definitely look forward to working with her more. Samia is great and I hope you guys read this and give her portfolio a look. I can honestly say , she is one hardworking awesome individual.

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!

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!

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!
