I'm so glad you're here! Can you believe the adventure you're about to begin? There is nothing on this earth quite like marriage, and I would be honored to capture your first moments as husband + wife.

As an Indianapolis wedding photographer, my goal is to capture the whole story of your wedding with a variety of images. The smile you give your bridesmaids as you slip into your dress, the way your mother watches as your hair and makeup come together, the moment you first become husband and wife for life, the laughter you share with those you love most, the quick hug you squeeze in with your very best friend, the kisses you sneak with your other half on the dance floor — every moment matters, and it is my JOY to capture them big or small.

Hey there! 

kind words

from past wedding clients

"I don't even know where to start with Sami besides this: literally, look no further!! When Sami arrived on our wedding day, I knew everything would be perfect. I trusted her completely and knew we would be able to relive our wedding day over and over with her work. Each image is perfection, and we are so thankful for her!"

- Nicole & Adam
The Ritz Charles Garden Pavilion

"From the moment we met Sami, she was this bright light that brought even more excitement to our wedding day! Sami made us feel comfortable the entire time and coached us on different poses that made us feel confident and relaxed! As for our wedding pictures, they are truly stunning. Sami has such an eye for photography and truly captures emotion and authenticity in all of her shots. She has such a sweet, charming, fun, personable and professional attitude."

- Maggie & Joe
Indianapolis, Indiana

"My husband absolutely loved the engagement shoot and was SO grateful that Sami recommended doing a first look on our wedding day. It eased all of his nerves! He is not a planner, but he has already mentioned how he wants to do a newborn shoot with her when we eventually have kids. Sami is absolutely incredible in every way and you will be SO happy with the images!" 

- Kelsey & Jarrod
Oakwood Resort, Lake Wawasee

"Sami is so much more than just a photographer. Planning a wedding can be quite stressful, and Sami was so helpful in answering any questions we had and making suggestions. It truly felt like we were working with friends rather than someone we hired to photograph our special day."

- Allison & Mike
Bloomington, Indiana

"Sami is the absolute best!!!!! She was our first vendor that we booked and she was by far our best vendor. She was professional, personable, and just fun to be around! She truly captured our personalities and the vibe that we were going for with our wedding day.

- Hannah & Ethen
Indianapolis, IN

"Not only are Sami's photos amazing, but she is so great to work with!! With a million things to worry about when planning a wedding, it was such a relief to not have to worry about our photography because I knew Sami had it covered!! She is so on top of everything and genuinely cares about getting the best photos and making you feel comfortable."

- Bekah & Brad
Indianapolis, Indiana

"I STRONGLY recommend hiring Sami to photograph your wedding--not just because of the amazing quality of pictures she takes, but because she is truly a great person! Sami will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and has a way of capturing every single important moment in your big day! Without a doubt, our best wedding decision was choosing Sami to photograph our wedding."

- Christina & Scott
The Indianapolis Central Library

Engagement sessions are my favorite! Not only do we get to know each other more, but we'll have a blast while doing so. I'll direct you just enough to keep things authentic, and you'll both be pros before you know it! Be sure to check out past sessions for location and outfit inspiration.

As your big day gets closer, we will plan another consultation to catch up, discuss day-of logistics, and create an ideal timeline for your wedding day. I love helping my brides piece together the schedule of their day and am here for every question along the way.

The day has finally arrived, and we will be there to document it all! It's time for you to sit back and enjoy the day with all the people you love the most. My second shooter and I will direct moments as necessary while capturing all the authentic in-betweens, too!
