Beautiful wedding images don’t just happen. Creating these special photos requires a photographer who’s proactive and detail-oriented every step of the way. Samantha has evolved a style of photography that is timeless and captures the deep emotions of your special day. If you’re a fan of vintage vibes and a warm, romantic tone, inquire with Samantha Holloway. You’ll be impressed with Sam’s ability to both outdoor and indoor spaces with a realistic tone.

“I work best with couples who care deeply about the quality of their wedding photos and want to partner with a photographer who will help them to proactively plan a photo-friendly wedding day,” Sam says. “It is important to me to not only be proactive before the wedding, but also during the wedding. In the past, I have helped to improve the quality of a couple’s wedding photos by making recommendations on things such as where to stand during the ceremony or cake-cutting. Believe it or not, standing one foot to the left or right can really make a difference!” Sam takes into account every detail, from timing to location, composition and more to create a masterpiece.

When you book Sam, you’ll receive an engagement session with your booking as well as an in-depth timeline consultation and ongoing logistical support. If you love spreadsheets and planning trips down to the last detail, Sam might be a great match for you!

“I provide suggestions based on my seasoned experience and listen closely to couples to ensure that we come up with a well-informed plan that reflects what is most important to them,” Sam says. “Do you like math formulas? I have a tried-and-true one for estimating how long family photos will take! Are you trying to decide between ceremony locations at your venue? I can recommend a sun-positioning app and provide my insights to help inform your decision.”
