      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".

      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!
