about Sam

I started photography while studying Architecture in 2014, focusing mainly on architectural photography and portraits. While architecture is still my main career, in recent years, I've fallen in love with capturing these little snippets in people's lives, both big and small, that tell the story of who they are. I now do portrait,  engagement, wedding, family, and couple shoots.  If those "genres" of shoots don't quite fit, I'm also thrilled to work with anyone to find a shoot that works best for you. I always strive to be as inclusive and mindful as I can be, and I am always trying to learn and grow both in my craft and in my interactions and understanding for others.

My style is always shifting as I  learn more and adapt to who I am working with. I really value taking the time to get to know who I am working with to create a set of images, together, that capture who they are at this moment in their life. That being said, I don't always follow the traditional role of "wedding photographer" or "portrait photographer", I want to find those genuine moments that really tell your story, I want to have fun, and I want to create something beautiful together. While I love shooting pretty much anything, my favorites are by far engagement and portrait shoots. I love the chance to get to get to know you a bit more, explore where you are at at this moment, and to have the time and attention to capturing who you are right now. 

I am currently located in Chicago, IL but travel home to Missouri often. I love to travel and am happy (and hope!) to explore new cities and locations for shoots. Please reach out to me if you have an idea for a shoot- whether conventional or not- I'd be excited to chat with you about it!
