planned the perfect day for our personalities

If you are even slightly considering eloping but have your doubts, I would 100% recommend talking to Sam. We planned a regular wedding that COVID ruined and I have to say from the beginning of planning our adventure elopement with Sam it felt more personal and enjoyable than any of the venues we had visited and ultimately the one we had chosen previously. His pictures speak for themselves but the work behind the camera is also extraordinary. He got to know us so well he was the one that planned the perfect day for our personalities, helped us choose a location knowing we loved hiking and being near water, brought a pour over set knowing we enjoy a hot cup of coffee more than anything, even played music we liked during the hike, because he had taken the time to really discuss what we like and what makes us who we are. Having planned both a regular wedding, and ultimately the adventure elopement of our dreams, we can say the care that Sam took for us had no comparison to every pushy salesperson we met at wedding venues.

In a time where the wedding industry has turned distant and extremely expensive, Sam made it enjoyable, affordable, and helped us plan a day we enjoyed every second of.

best decision I ever made

If you want your wedding to be next level, then hire Sam ASAP! I couldn’t begin to recommend him more. Our wedding was cancelled 3 times due to the pandemic, so we decided to elope to Lake Geneva. We hired Sam as our videographer and it was the best decision I ever made, next to choosing my groom of course. Not only did he spend the day with us, he helped me plan the elopement in 2 weeks to make it absolutely perfect. He helped me with making a schedule for the day, made our dinner plans, even brought Christmas lights to string in our villa to have special lighting for dinner. I wouldn’t even want the original wedding we planned in Turks and Caicos because Sam made everything so perfect. I can’t tell you how many complements we have gotten on the trailer video, we don’t even have the full video yet! My new husband and I are pretty shy in front of a camera, but Sam captured the love between us and made us look so comfortable in the spot light. He also brought a photographer with him, so I didn’t have to worry about coordinating a photographer and videographer to work together. We eloped just the two of us, so it was important for me to have a video to show my family and friends since no one was there. Every person that we have showed the trailer to has cried and said how perfect everything looked. Especially if you are considering an elopement... you need to hire Sam!

more than just someone who produces photos

The photos look straight out of a magazine and even better than the photos on my wedding dream board. I urge you to look at Sams portfolio not for his sake, but for yours. You couldn’t possibly find a better quality photographer than him. Did you look? Great. Now that you’ve seen for yourself how insane his photographer skills are, I don’t need to convince you. Instead, I’ll brag about how amazing it was to work with Sam as more than just someone who produces photos. When you are doing hours or even days of photo shoots, do you want someone who you feel uncomfortable around? Someone who feels very ‘commercial’ and not genuine? Someone who just takes pictures and doesn’t help you pose or feel confident/amazing during the process? Because we saw a LOT of that with other couples & elopement photographers on our trip. That is the exact OPPOSITE of Sam. We had a group of about 20 people & Sam fit in so quickly, we forgot he was even there! He was laughing & striking up conversations with the groomsmen, playing with my little brothers, & taking amazing couples portraits of our parents so they also had keepsakes. That is unheard of in a photographer. To top it off, Sam takes all the stress out of planning. He identifies locations, maps out timelines, brings equipment to communicate with multiple parties of the elopement for coordination. If you are a crazy planner like I am & think you have it all covered, you will be even more blessed & thankful to work with Sam. I had planned out the elopement, the location, the timeline and all. I got to Yosemite, scoped out the sight & thought I was good to go. Then Sam sent me photos of crazy unbeatable views that definitely weren’t from the site I chose. They were 10x better & more accessible for our wedding party. The morning of my sunrise wedding, everyone was running late...like 35 minutes late & I was terrified that I would have to go coordinate my OWN wedding in my WEDDING DRESS while the groom and every sees me, completely ruining the surprise and magic of a wedding. Uh-uh. We get there, Sam is on walkie-talkies, the whole party is set-up, the groom is turned so he doesn’t see me, and it looks like the site and party had been prepared for hours before when in reality we were wayyy behind the timeline. Just imagine the amount of coordination that the wedding planner from “Bride Wars” had to go through to do both Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson’s wedding AT THE SAME TIME at the Plaza....that was Sam but he was also photographing the wedding....while on a mountain....insane. Have I convinced you yet that Sam is going to be the most integral part of your dream elopement? Because I could go on for hours more if needed. My dress cost $100, my bouquet was fake, made by me for about $50, we got crazy cheap airfare, my sister did my hair and makeup, and Sam’s photography somehow made me look like a Scarlett Johansson vanity fair shoot. If you spend money on anything to make your wedding look like a million bucks, it is Sams photography skills. He plans, coordinates, finds all the secret spots, rally’s the troops and prevents any family drama, takes expert level photos even if you are in a garbage bag, brings a speaker for music, and above all is a blast to hangout with. What else do you even need for an elopement? He does it all. He will photograph us for every major event and our children’s events too because that is how much we love Sam as a person and photographer. Don’t even debate it, just book him.

he has the ability to make ANY elopement a special one

Sam is simply the BEST! From the very beginning, we could tell we would like Sam over our other candidates because he was professional, extremely helpful, and he asked the right questions to help us create a GREAT experience. Sam was not only easy to work with - he is fun to work with too. Athletic, emergency medical training, a joyful/ focused attitude... Hired! Day of he was EXTREMELY professional and a pleasure to have around. We switched locations and he surprised us with snacks for the hike and a bottle of champagne to celebrate! All in all I recommend Sam to ANY COUPLE as I believe he has the ability to make ANY elopement a special one. Thank you Sam for sharing and making our special day more than what we could of hoped for! Hire him - not only will you not regret it, you'll be grateful (like us) that you did.

Hollywood quality for wedding films

Thank you! The only thing I can say about Fearless Elopement is Thank you! For months of planning a wedding trying to find the perfect vendors, worrying about budget; is it worth the money? will the videographers get in the way or do the day justice? It was a relief to find Sam and his team. Considering the constantly changing plans due to a global pandemic, Sam always made sure to make himself available to put my mind at ease that he will do whatever he could to make the day perfect. His quality of footage and editing style was more that I could have dreamed of having! I'm talking Hollywood quality for wedding films. I think the cherry on top of it all is we now have the ability to share our day with our friends and family that weren't able to attend due to COVID. If you're even considering a videographer, stop looking, you found your team right here! 10000% worth the investment. Honestly can not recommend this team enough.
