Hey there. I am Samantha Marie.
I am a quirky, 22 year old wedding photographer in the Ottawa area, who loves to laugh and make funny faces.
I have always been artistic and creative. In high school I started in film photography and art classes. I was in heaven! That all changed when I was forced to take an accounting class because I wasn’t allowed two spares. During that accounting class (which I wasn’t great at) I realized I wanted to do photography full time & be my own boss of my own company. With college applications looming, I decided to take the leap and go for a career that I knew I would love. I went to Algonquin College for my bachelor in photography and I expanded to weddings, families, newborns, events, and basically any other type of portrait photography I could do.
Some fun facts about me;
- I always have a hair elastic on my wrist if I don't have one in my hair
- I am obsessed with my FitBit.
- I love chocolate covered caramels, black and green jellybeans, and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
- I married my junior high sweetheart and have an adorable & spunky 2 year old daughter
As a photographer I take pride in the fact that, not only can I photograph all your special wedding day memories, but I can also bustle a gown, arrange flowers, show you how to put on boutonnieres, fix a curl, show you how to cut your cake, and be the go to person for your wedding day needs!
With the help of my amazing second shooters & my amazing husband as my office manager; I am looking forward to chatting with you more about your wedding photography needs. I would love to meet for coffee!
