I’m obsessed with epic locations that are off the beaten path and hidden gems. I love couples & families who share the same love for nature and adventure!

 

I have a husband, who is a videographer, and you can catch us and our dog Jovi out exploring beautiful Utah any day of the week!

  Rave Reviews!  

"Our photographer Sammie was so sweet and our little boy loved her! She was patient and kind and I cannot recommend them enough."
This company truly has 5 stars for a reason. I have had several family photo sessions and this one was by far my favorite to date. (And I haven’t even got the photos back yet!) from the time you book they are incredible.  If you are on the fence about booking, do it! You won’t regret it. I will update when I get the photos back. :)
