          Hey,
          I'm Sam.

          Photography isn't just my passion, it's my calling.
          With my whole heart and every fiber of my being, I want to lift you up and serve you to the best of my abilities.

          Wedding + Lifestyle Photographer, Sam Payne

          I’m a Wedding + Lifestyle Photographer with a passion for people. I’ve loved snapping pictures since the iPhone was a thing, but I’ve gotten a taste for something even more fulfilling. And it’s you. The feels I get from behind the lens is unreal. Because I believe you are unique and beautiful and I want to tell your story.

          So I promise to capture you at your best, naturally and tastefully. We won’t stick you in uncomfortable, stiff poses. You won’t smile and say “CHEESE!”. What we will do however, is have a freaking adventure. I take your time very seriously and what’s the point of taking a photo if it isn’t a memorable moment?! So whether I’m traveling to you or with you, I want in! Now hit me up on my contact page and let’s go!

          What My

          Clients Say...

          Sam is the ideal photographer! She is warm and encouraging and helps you not only feel comfortable in photo shoots but actually enjoy the process (which for many people can be awkward or stressful). Her positivity is contagious and you’ll have fun just being around her. She’s highly professional and easy to work with, she’s timely with delivering galleries and communicates clearly. It’s evident that cares deeply about client satisfaction. And of course, her photos speak for themselves. Book your wedding or next shoot of any kind with Sam Payne! You can thank me later!

          What My

          Clients Say...

          The first time we used Sam for family photos, I immediately knew that I was going to love working with her. She is so flexible during shoots and super patient with our toddler son. She made us feel very comfortable and I especially love her candid approach during sessions. When we received our photos from her after using her the first time, I instantly fell in love with her work and knew she was our family's "forever photographer".
