Looking for your next adventure?

Look no further! I am a natural light photographer based in Los Alamos, New Mexico with a spirit for adventure and a passion for all things romantic, organic, natural, and scenic. My style is unique and the experience I provide is extremely personalized. The connection we build will ensure we capture you and your family in the best (natural) light possible. Most often I focus on elopements, weddings, couples, high school seniors and families, but I also specialize in maternity, headshots, boudoir and branding photos.

Let’s meet for a beer. If craft brews aren’t your thing, we can go for coffee instead. I want to photograph you in your element and get to know the real you. I want to connect with you on a personal level before our session so I can personalize the experience for you and really let your personality shine.

After drinks, let’s hike a mountain, splash in a river, or trek through the woods in the snow. Whether you want to meet for sunrise photos or starlight photos, I’m always ready to be outdoors. We have such beautiful natural scenery in New Mexico, but if you’re not looking for the southwestern backdrops or mountain scenery that Northern New Mexico offers, I’m happy to travel with you to our next adventure. Whether it’s in other parts of New Mexico or out of state, let’s do this!

Hi I’m Sam

 

Lover of photography, adventurer of the wild, seeker of friendship, celebrator of the beautiful moments in life

Are we about to become best friends? Yep! I’m Sam and I grew up surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the world with endless opportunities to explore outside and ultimately develop the distinct style of my photos. To stand out against these beautiful backdrops you need to be BOLD and there’s no better way to stand out than through the romantic, timeless photos that we’ll create together!

Photography allows me to connect with people, share their stories, invest in their lives, and continue exploring the amazing outdoors both in Northern New Mexico and outside of the area. I am so grateful to be following my dreams and I am looking forward to (hopefully) helping you create the photos of your dreams for your special day, big event, or just because you deserve to feel beautiful!

I love to capture the most intimate and romantic moments in someone’s life. From engagements, weddings, and maternity, to steamy couples and boudoir shoots, I’m up for anything. Rest assured, with these more intimate shoots I do everything possible to make sure you’re comfortable and confident in front of the camera. You are absolutely beautiful, and I want you to feel that way when we’re working together. I will be one of your biggest supporters, by your side through the laughter, tears, and all of the romantic moments.
