lets be friends forever

oklahoma wedding photographer

I want to work with people who want to work with me. but I mean, really want to work with me. the people who value both their photos but also friendship. the people who also believe good photos should be a joyful experience. the people who want to connect with the person taking them. the people who want to come out of their wedding day having someone who is always going to be in their corner. the people who want to have silly group texts about life and their visions for photos instead of stale emails. the people who believe photos are a lifelong investment.

if that sounds like your vibe then you're probably my vibe, too.

wedding + lifestyle photographer based in okc, ok.

"sami is worth all of the praise that we could give her. from the very start she made a point to know her clients so that on our big day it felt like another friend in the room. i never imagined calling my photographer "friend" but that is exactly what she became. my friend sami gave me an appreciation for photography by the way she captured all of our loved ones so perfectly. all the love and joy from our wedding day is expressed through the pictures she took."

photos that reflect your relationship, your personality, your day; the way it happened.

"If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would. Sami is an absolute dream to work with. She's so so sweet but more importantly, her pictures are amazing every time. Even though taking pictures can definitely feel awkward sometimes, she makes the whole experience very comfortable. She's a very sweet and fun person to work with and that definitely reflects in her work. Sami photographed our wedding, on recommendation, and I am so glad we went with her.  Our pictures look straight out of a movie and we will definitely treasure them for years and years to come. (How in the world can someone p e r f e c t l y capture love in a photo?? Not sure but Sami nailed it). Seriously cannot speak highly enough of sweet Sami. I promise you will never regret choosing Sami to photograph your special days."

 "What I can say about Sami is that her product quality is at the top of the list in Oklahoma, her work is timeless as well. Even more so, she is a kind & good soul. She takes any weight or tension in the room & replaces it with a kindred-bright energy. She is the very best."

hi, hey, hello

my name is sami

and I am so thrilled that you’re here! 

My business exists to know you + to honestly tell your story. 
I want to know who you are. I want to know your story. I want to know literally anything you want to tell me. With 7 years of experience in the wedding industry, i've seen a lot. Not only do you need someone who can take pretty portraits, but you need someone who's seasoned, experienced, and can handle all the curveballs a wedding day can and will throw at them. Lucky for you, i'm that girl.

"I cannot say enough good things about Sami!! She is so incredibly talented! But not only that, she is the sweetest soul, the kind of person you want to be around. She makes the environment so fun & comfortable. My favorite thing about her photos- they are all natural & in the moment. She captures the raw emotions. Which makes looking back on your pictures so much sweeter because you can feel all of the emotions in the photos. Not only did I get amazing photos I can look back on forever, I got the best friendship out of it. I can write a book about her because she’s so great- but I’ll leave it at this, you can’t find a better photographer or friend!!"

She is the kindest soul, love others so incredibly well, and is one of the most talented photographers.”

"Sami is an absolutely phenomenal individual and photographer! My wife and I used her to shoot our engagement photos and our wedding. When we received our gallery, we were not disappointed. Sami has a true gift for capturing genuine moments, authentic emotion, and creates a narrative of the timeless events we hold so dear. Not only that, she is highly professional and diligent in making the most of your time and hers. I cannot emphasize it enough - Sami is the person you want and need taking those picture perfect instances. Furthermore, I think it is vitally important to mention that Sami is a wonderful person overall. She is one of those rare individuals you meet for the first time, yet feel like you've been best friends for years! She helped make us feel so comfortable and at ease during our shoot (which, it being our first time to do a shoot, is no easy feat)! That being said, I highly recommend Sami for your photography needs - you might just meet your new best friend."
