Samantha Stokes

Your wedding day won’t be filled with awkward poses and wondering if you’re doing it right or wrong. I want to allow you to soak in all of the emotions of your day and connect with the one you love - those are the raw, untouched moments I want to capture. I'm so excited to create something incredible with you!

My packages start at the following prices: Weddings $2,100|  Elopements $600  |  Engagements & Couples $300

Things you want to know:

Each wedding, elopement, and destination event include the following:

  • A complimentary engagement session: I love offering a local engagement session when you book a wedding with me for a couple of reasons: 1) This will help us get to know each other so that we can better work together 2) it will help you and your fiance express your love for one another while being in front of the camera. However, whether you choose to have an engagement session or not, the wedding price stays the same.

  • Two photographers (depending on the size of the wedding): Allows the entire wedding day to go smoothly; while one photographer can focus on the wonderful, small details of the day, the other can capture the bigger picture. Having two photographers also allows one of us to be with the ladies for the pre-wedding hours and the second photographer to be with the men.

  • Full-day wedding coverage: I’m not going to show up on your wedding day, snap a few photos and take off, because I’m there to create something incredible with you. Full day coverage means that myself and my second photographer will be there from the moment you’re getting ready and stay until all of the reception events are finished.

  • All post-processed images delivered to you via online gallery. Every image delivered to you is finished, without watermark, and ready to be downloaded and shared.

  • A printing/digital use-rights release that allows you to share all your amazing images online (and make all of your friends jealous), with proper copyrights. This release also allows you to print as many of the images as you want, as many times as you want, without restriction.


  • Out of state: If your wedding, elopement, or travel session is out of state I charge variations of a flat rate travel expense fee, depending on the location. Just send me a message via my contact form with details about the location and i’ll be in touch about the specifics.

  • Out of the country: (Um, yes please!) Get in touch, thank you.
