Hi, I'm Sam and I've had the absolute honour of capturing love stories for a living since 2017. Do you want storytelling images, without awkward posing, that tell the unique story of you? Let's chat!


What areas do you cover?

I'm based in Staffordshire and cover Staffordshire, Cheshire, the West Midlands, and Shropshire as my core areas but I'm very happy to travel across the UK and beyond.

What is your style of photography?

Predominantly, I offer an inconspicuous, storytelling approach so that my couples don't feel like they are participating in a 12-hour photoshoot. I put my heart and soul into every single wedding that I photograph and am passionate about telling the unique story of your wedding day through a relaxed and informal documentary-style approach, placing a distinct emphasis on capturing what is real rather than what is set up. This style of photography builds a complete picture, the who, the where, and the whys - essentially, it tells a beautiful story, your story.

But photos make us feel really awkward...

But photos make us feel awkward... Snap, absolutely me too, it's like my worst nightmare which is why I much prefer to be this side of the lens but because I know what it feels like to be nervous in front of the camera, I can help my couples to relax with simple guidance, by not being up in your face with a camera, by giving you space to breathe and just be yourselves, I'm absolutely not about awkward posing or big grins straight down the lens, in fact I rarely ask you to look directly at me, its more about capturing the connection you share naturally. That's not to say I won't give you some pointers here and there, but it will never be forced or rigid. That connection could be shot as the two of you stroll hand in hand back toward your guests. It could be an impromptu kiss on the head or a loving glance in between shots. As much as possible, I like to leave you both to interact with your guests and enjoy all the moments that your special day brings, but I usually recommend we schedule about 30 minutes at some point in your day for some artistic couple photographs of the two of you. Whether you are naturally photogenic or whether being photographed is your worst nightmare my relaxed approach and creative ideas will have us capturing beautiful images that you will want to put on your wall.


We seemed to look for months for a photographer for our wedding but decided to choose Sam before we even had our first meeting! Her work was absolutely stunning and as soon as we met we knew she was the one for us! She helped us (without pushing any ideas onto us) to choose what we wanted from our day. We wanted a more natural setup with unstaged photos and that's exactly what we got, our photos are a stunning reminder of our wonderful day and if we could do it all over again, we would hire Sam every time! She is fantastic at what she does and kept us updated at every stage, before and after the wedding! Thank you so much Sam!

Sam was the wedding photographer for my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding 3 years ago and the photos were beautiful, so as soon as we got engaged and booked a local venue, we knew who we wanted as our photographer! Sam is so talented and creative and was coming up with ideas for photos all day which we would never have thought of. She arrived early in the morning and stayed well into the night to make sure we had photos of the whole day (even after we told her she could go home!) We’ve had compliments about Sam from all of our guests, not just for how wonderful the photos are but for how friendly, laidback, and unobtrusive she was all day. She fit into our day like another member of the family who just happened to be taking amazing photos of everything! We would recommend Sam to anyone, thank you Sam!

If you need an incredible photographer to capture your special day, look no further! Sam made us feel at ease from the moment we met her, and she not only captured every single detail of our special day perfectly, but she did it twice as we officially married when it was the rule of 6. She works wonders and captures all the smiles. We can't recommend her enough and have the most amazing photos to cherish forever. X
