Associate Photographers

Samantha Marie Photography is expanding. We are always expanding and looking for new + exciting things to add to the brand and company. For the 2018 season we have decided to add associate photographers to broaden the horizon for Samantha Marie Photography. If I am booked for your wedding you can choose one of the associate photographers to come and photograph in my place. That being said I will still be the one who does your engagement session and the one to do all of the editing. 

We have three associate photographers who are available. They are also second shooters for me and are extremely talented. 

The prices for them are the same as what is listed on the wedding collections page. I am a firm believer of paying the value of the talent and I believe these ladies would be an ample fill in for when I am booked. Your wedding photography is extremely important to each of us on this team and we take great care to produce the images that you are paying for. 

Below are their profiles! Their galleries can be found on the on the meet the team page! 

Let me have the joy of introducing you too....

I'm Hilary, and I am an Ottawa based Wedding and Portrait Photographer. I have grown up with art and photography all of my life, and have always had a passion for creating beautiful works of art and photographs.

I have had a camera attached to my hand since I was young - back when disposable cameras were all the rage. I love bright colours and beautiful scenery, which I've developed through my years of nature photography. I taught myself to use my camera in my parents backyard, taking photos of the flowers they have back there. Since then, I have moved on to capturing couples in love, and I absolutely love it!

When I'm not a busy photographer, I am at work for Postmedia Network designing ads for newspapers; I'm out hiking the Greenbelt trails around the city; cuddling my crazy cat Ophelia; reading books with a warm cup of tea; or binge watching cheesy television shows like Big Brother.

I very excited to work with the super talented team at Samantha Marie Photography, and to get to know all of you!

My name is Isabelle, I am 22 years old and grew up in Ottawa. I am a nurse, type 1 diabetic, dog-lover, AND a photographer!

I grew up in Ottawa and I am a part-time nurse and part-time photographer. My journey to photography started when I was in high school, I picked up my dads camera and never left it behind. I took photos for friends and at prom. 

There are very few things that inspire me more than love. There is nothing I enjoy more than witnessing love in its everyday world. Whether it is an engagement, a wedding, a newborn, or a family reunion, the amount of love that I am surrounded by in the photography business is why I LOVE what I do. 

When I am not behind the lens or in a pair of scrubs, you can find me cuddled up with a book and a cup of coffee, online shopping, or crying over cute dog videos… and if you ever need to have your day brightened, I love to share!

For that reason, I am so happy to get the opportunity to work with Samantha Marie Photography, and with you


Josie Headshot.jpg



My name is Josie, and I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. Just this year I moved to Ottawa, Ontario.

Despite being away from my beloved Rockies I’m still an avid snowboarder, hiker, camper and pretty much anything that’s outside! I have traveled a lot over the last few years and don’t plan to stop! I love a good book by a body of water or a fire place and I am also a huge fan of a big warm cup of joe, he and I are very good friends!

Half the time I consider myself to be super extroverted and the other half, quite introverted. Either way, you can always catch me somewhere making a bad pun or off joke! I love what I do because I’m a romantic and nothing gets more romantic than being able to capture moments of love. A mother with her brand-new baby, a family playing and laughing wherever they are, a couple cuddled up in each others arms or two people on the happiest days of their lives! I enjoy it so much, it is my passion.

I am excited to work with Samantha Marie Photography, and get to work with all of you!

I am so excited to have this opportunity to branch out into this area of my business and I am also excited to see how 2018 is going to go. Send me a message through the contact form with any questions you have or to see the availability of the second shooters.
