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.
I got the chance to photograph an elopement and that's when I had my AHA moment! It was beautiful in every single way.
I believe that EVERY couple deserves a wedding day that truly makes them happy, 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.
