Hey there. I am Samantha Marie.

In cased you didn’t notice, I’m Samantha & I am a quirky, 22 year old wedding photographer in the Ottawa area, who loves to laugh and make funny faces. 

I am an Ottawa-based award winning, published wedding photographer who specializes in lifestyle wedding photography with a bright, light, airy and romantic style!

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. Since then I have specialized in weddings full time, with portrait sessions filling the gaps between weddings.

Some fun facts about me; 

- I always have a hair elastic on my wrist if I don't have one in my hair. But the one on my wrist never goes in my hair because its stretched out perfectly to fit on my wrist like a bracelet.

- I am obsessed with my FitBit. I love to do challenges to see who can take the most steps and I am super competitive.

- I am Keto based and gluten free, which makes cooking and eating really fun as I get to try a bunch of new foods and recipes {even though I am a horrible cook!}

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! Being a full time wedding photographer has given me the joy and opportunity to serve my wedding clients on the biggest day of their lives. I have had the absolute best couples!

The wedding collections that I created were made with my clients in mind for the best experience! All collections include a complimentary engagement session, printing rights, professionally edited digital images. The complimentary engagement session is a free service that gives you a chance for you and your fiance to practice, and for myself to get to know the two of you! The 8, 10 and 12 hour package include a second photographer! This is a wonderful add-on as you’re given a second eye for the day.

With the help of my amazing second shooters; I am looking forward to chatting with you more about your wedding photography needs. I would love to meet for coffee!

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read up about your future photographer (hopefully)! Please feel free to send me an email if you are interested in booking your wedding or want more information, I would love to hear from you!

Cheers!
