Samantha Josette


I have always been exploring my interest in photography since over a decade ago.  This interest then turned into a passion that bloomed into a wonderful business that it is today.       Photographing Weddings has become such a joy for me.  I just feel so honored that a couple would choose me to capture their most important day.  And to think that generations following will be going back to these photos to get a taste of their families history... thats an awesome feeling.

elopements .... Obsessed! .... since it usually takes place somewhere you can't fit 100 people, like atop a mountain, at the base of a waterfall or on a boat to name a few.  I would love to explore more Beauty in the world and become your destination wedding photographer .... just name the place and Im there. 

My photography work doesn't stop with just weddings, I also photograph families, children, high school and college senior portraits, boudoir, engagements, lifestyle (in home experience) and so much more.

I love capturing my couples most important day.  Being chosen to take photos for weddings is the biggest honor for me.  It means that I am trusted with probably the most important photos of anyones lives.  Not only is it an honor... I LOVE DOING IT. 

So what do you get when you hire me as your wedding photographer? 

After booking you most likely will get a personal message from me cheering and thanking you because honestly I love any chance I get to capture a couples wedding day. 

We then will schedule your engagement session that comes with all my wedding packages.  This is really important for us because it will give us a chance to get to know each other, I can familiar with your comfort zones, and communicate a little bit about your hopes and dreams for your wedding day.  This engagement session always goes well if we start it off with Happy Hour.   

From there depending on how far out your wedding day its I will send you a series of questions to get an idea of what most important to you in what is being captured from the sweet intimate moments to family portraits to send off.  I will also communicate with your wedding planner or point person and make sure we are on the same page with the timeline. 

The wedding day I will have another professional photographer team up with me to help capture the moments that are happening at the same time as moments that I am capturing.  This second shooter comes with all my packages.  

Lets talk hours.  I will arrive and leave at whatever time it takes to capture all the moments you want to have.  

Your Photos.  You will receive some sneak peaks to share with family and friends the following day, this will hold you over till you receive the final photos which will be delivered to your inbox no later than 4 weeks after your wedding day.  I only deliver digital images.  You will receive an online gallery with all your edited images for sharing and downloading.  I do not give prints but you can order prints through this gallery or just download and order prints with a 3rd party. 


What do you get with a portrait session? Glad you asked. this includes the shooting time, we can go to any local location of your choice or you can just tell me the vibe you want and i will find or suggest the perfect place.  after your session you will receive some sneak peaks same day! Yes same day.  The rest of your images will be delivered within a week.  

How do you receive your images?  Great question.  I only deliver digital images.  You will receive a link to an online gallery where you then can download and share all your images.  I do not give prints with my packages however you can order prints from the gallery or just download your images and print them through a 3rd party.

What exactly is a portrait session?  I think the sky is the limit.  Im most popular for my family and kids sessions.  I will pose you however I have more of a lifestyle storytelling style.  Meaning I will be promoting you with actions or questions and capturing your natural reactions and movements.  Candid photography is always the most breathtaking.  I also love photographing Intimates (aka boudoir), graduating seniors, bloggers and of course COUPLES! 

 What is your favorite to photograph? I used to not have an answer to this because I love it all. But I now can say that I love an adventurous couple.  The ones who want to jump in the ocean, do a sunrise hike, or meet me in a wild location like Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Joshua Tree etc. I love adventure and capturing stunning images of couples enjoying nature and one another.
