Some Raleigh wedding and portrait photographers have editing styles that leave you looking like an oompa loompa or a pale ghost. I edit with the artsy, warm, vintage-inspired vibe you love, while keeping it timeless and making sure skin tones look realistic.
As a Raleigh wedding and portrait photographer, I have worked with many clients who tell me that they have never taken professional photos before or feel self-conscious about how they look. When they see their photos, they are amazed.
Unlike other Raleigh wedding and portrait photographers, my goal is to guide you through posing and capture a range of emotions in your images. I love laughing poses, candid poses, and poses with movement, but also emotional and edgy editorial-style poses that will make you look and feel like a model (think Vogue magazine)! My approach to posing is sophisticated and timeless, not cheesy and fake. In addition, I always take into account any body image concerns expressed by clients and aim to pose in the most flattering way.
There are many Raleigh wedding and portrait photographers, but not all of them will make you look your best like I will.

I am so thankful that me and my now wife Kaily chose to work with Sam as we were working towards getting married. Sam is a great friend an is an honest and hard working person to do business with. Me an my wife chose to get married midway through the 2020 pandemic year, and Samantha was both informative and catered towards a lot of unique things going on (both circumstantial, and our unique goals as a couple). My advice to all in the market for a good photographer is to reach out!
