I’m Sami..

..a Virginia Beach based Wedding, Portrait, and Event Photographer

I have been behind the camera taking photos of real people in real moments: laughing, loving, and soaking up the beautiful chaos, for over 10 years.   I pride myself on working with clients throughout every stage of their life from engagements, to the wedding, to maternity and newborn and then of course family sessions. 

I’m a short, New England born, somewhat sassy boy mom who loves scarfs, a nice cold hard seltzer and pumpkin spice everything (yes, I am just your basic girl over here!!) Thanks again for being here, I can’t wait to meet you!

Core Values

I am a hard working mom boss and I’m always trying to be the best version of myself for myself, my family, & my clients.  I will always follow “The Golden Rule” & provide phenomanal customer service.


Above all, I strive to always have FUN & not take myself too seriously.  I laugh A LOT, its something I’m insanely good at.  I will always try to encourage my clients to laugh and have the best time while we are together!


My mission is to provide outstanding service, an enjoyable experience in front of the camera, as well as photographs you will love and cherish for years to come.

“Sami did our engagement photos and they were so awesome!!!  I absolutely loved working with her.  I do not consider myself photogenic whatsoever, and Sami made both me and my fiance so comfortable, we had a great time during our photo shoot and looked awesome!  They are, hands down, the best photos we have of ourselves, and I know I’m going to cherish them for a long time coming.”
