"Sam’s style is not a lighting technique, lens effect, or photoshop filter.  Sam’s style is seeking you out, wherever you are, in front of his camera." 

I’ve known Sam for over a decade now, working together, teaching together, and occasionally even photographing each other.  Sam asked me to write the “forward” for his website because he doesn’t particularly like writing about himself, and I think that very fact provides insight into what makes Sam’s work distinct among the top tier of wedding photographers: he is willing to let you be the star of your own photographs.

The world of wedding photography today is full of photographers who invite you to be models supporting their artistic vision.  Their images are glamorous, exciting, and artistic, but I often struggle to identify a shred of their clients’ personalities in the shots.  Sam arrives at your shoot with fantastic design sense, keen lighting ability, and exceptional posing skills... and then he puts all of these things to work in letting you be yourself in the images he creates.  


Whether fun and unpretentious or dramatic and intense, Sam’s intuition, insight, and flexibility will adapt his storytelling style to your needs.  As you view Sam’s portfolio, you will be viewing a body of work as diverse as the wide variety of people who have chosen him to document their lives.  Sam’s style is not a lighting technique, lens effect, or photoshop filter.  Sam’s style is seeking you out, wherever you are, in front of his camera.
