Before I started photographing elopements, I was a big wedding photographer, but everything changed
I was photographing a traditional wedding and I noticed that my bride was very stressed-out. We were running behind because people kept showing up late. Some of the bridal parties / family members got irritated. At the end of the night, she told me "I'm glad it was over...."
No one should feel like that on their wedding day. Every couple deserves a wedding day that truly makes them happy.
I got the chance to photograph an elopement and that's when I had my AHA moment! It was beautiful in every single way.
And that's why I do what I do.

Also meet my pack! This is Sierra, she's my favorite backpack full of bad jokes & unnecessary smiles. And that's Twinkie! She's an Aussie mix that we rescued in Aug 2020 :) She LOVES playing frisbee!
I’m Sam Sansudsavat (san-sood-sa-vat) It’s really hard to pronounce so you can just called me SAM.
Long story short… I was born and raised in Thailand for 15 years, then I moved to WA for school. Hated school so I joined the US Army as a medic and they sent me to Hawaii (bummer lol). Didn't like the Army, so now I’m a wedding photographer in based in Wisconsin! And I love it!

Beyond CPR... I was a combat medic in the army & EMT. I know how to handle any life threatening injury. I have dedicated medical supply/medicine with me because your safety is my #1 priority.
(Also included: dark sense of humor, crazy stories, and snacks for days)
I’m also a certified ordained officiant. I can sign your legal documents, thus keeping your elopement super intimate.
