What couples said about their Elopement experience

“He’s more than just a photographer!”

Sam is absolutely AWESOME! Awesome does not even describe it. He’s more than just a photographer! He’s a guide, medic, officiant, comedian, and an all around caring and helpful guy! Sam is dedicated to staying efficient, but also makes it important to note that you just need to be YOU. No certain posing, just be in love and he will absolutely capture everything you ever wanted. Just meeting him on our first day in Zion National Park, he is a close family friend now. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended Sam!

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.

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, Sam made it enjoyable, memorable, and helped us plan a day we enjoyed every second of

“I’ve cried so many times at our photos and can say that we have also made a new friend!”

We worked with Sam for our Lake Tahoe elopement and I can’t even decide where to begin. Sam was responsive, professional, knowledgeable and all around just everything I was looking for. He took to the time to get to know us before we started the whole process to make sure he was a fit with out vision and for that I’m truly thankful. He captured the most epic wedding I could have ever dreamed of. He flew out ahead of time with us to help scope the best views and locations that would be accessible to our 90+ year old grandparents. He stayed in Lake Tahoe with us the whole time and even joined us on our fly fishing trip to take pics as part of our purchased package. I’ve cried so many times looking at our beautiful photos and can say that we have also made a new friend! I’d give him 10 stars if I could. Thank you Sam for everything!
