S Photography | Rome, Italy Elopement

Hey there, I’m Sam. I live in Oregon and travel around the pacific northwest and beyond for beautiful images and adventurous couples who love anything from a traditional wedding, to an adventurous destination wedding, to an intimate elopement.

Most days you can find me hanging out with my pubs and husband, being active in theatre, and nerding out over Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Harry Potter (Hufflepuff, here!). I’m mostly known for my local involvement in theatre and music, and people often refer to me as “that girl who plays all those instruments”. I love serving the world by visualizing the romance, adventure, and fun of all you travelers, wanderers, and lovers of all things “off the beaten path”.

Things I’m most passionate about are: old country music like Red Sovine, Marty Robbins, Roy Rogers, Lorne Green, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Irish/Celtic pub songs – my husband calls me the youngest old lady he knows. I also LOVE to travel, and learn new languages.

I photograph people who have a desire to incorporate scenery, adventure, travel, and candidness into their images. I’m lucky to capture them in their true element, where they are absolutely their most beautiful!

As a portrait and wedding photographer, I’ve been featured in several online/print publications, and am a sponsor of my local theatre company.

When I’m not busy working on photography, marketing, and planning my next wanderlust trip, I am most likely cuddling with my dogs, trying to not rescue every stray animal I see on the internet, and figuring out when the next episode of my favorite show is coming out.

If you’re dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me:

  1. I play several different woodwind instruments, but can't play stringed instruments to save my life!
  2. I studied French for 7 years, and lived in France for 6 months.
  3. I wish I loved to run – or at least jog.
  4. Most days I don’t wear makeup.
  5. I feel most alive when I’m exploring the world.
  6. BONUS: I used to compete in the equestrian disciplines of show jumping, cross country and dressage

Below are images of an elopement I did in Rome, Italy.

Nami and Hari decided they wanted their wedding photos captured in Rome, Italy.  So, they flew from Tokyo to Rome, Italy to meet me!

Sweet images were captured at the Villa Borghese, overlooking the Piazza del Popolo and St. Peter's Basilica in the background. It was beautiful, intimate, and perfect. I had an amazing time with Nami and Hari. Following their session we went out to dinner and enjoyed a wonderful evening!

I am lucky to travel to fantastic places to photograph amazing couples. 2018 brides are just starting to inquire and I'm already booked for Portland, Corvallis, Central Oregon, Yosemite, and Hawaii!
