I am a Cape Town-based photographer with an eye for detail, a flair for fashion, and a love for gorgeous, natural photos.
I’m easy-going, friendly, and focused on creative details that make a photograph timelessly beautiful.
I’ve always loved photography and before I became a full-time photographer,
I worked as a fashion designer where I was inspired by gorgeous images in fashion editorials.
I describe my photographic style as
‘Classic Contemporary Storytelling’
I capture the moments, emotions, and details of your wedding day in a way that tells the story of your unique romance.
I aim to capture images that are natural and modern while remaining timeless.
I don’t like stiff poses and fake smiles, I prefer to capture the natural,
real and heartfelt moments in an unobtrusive, photo-journalistic style of photography.
It’s all about celebrating your love story.
I look forward to hearing from you,

It’s no secret that I’m totally in love with Sam and think she is the most uber amazingly talented human being around and it’s all basically because she’s just overall such an amazing person from the inside out and her rocking joyous personality is reflected in her ‘work’. I have never loved photo’s of myself or felt comfortable on the other side of the camera but with Sam you don’t even realize it and each and every person she photographs looks like a model afterwards!

Samantha is my favourite photographer. Not only does she make you feel totally relaxed and knows just how to bring out the best in you – but she also has a very creative eye due to her many years in the fashion industry. Her photo’s are always well balanced and she uses the backgrounds with perfect proportions – so not only do you really look good, but they end up looking like magazine shoots. We all have our insecurities, and Samantha manages to highlight your good points and lift your self esteem.

I have worked with Sam for more than 10 years and have commissioned her for various different types of shoots - from events to family portraits to pets and corporate head shots. Sam has a gift of setting her subjects at ease and getting the very best out of them. She edits with a gentle hand, subtly correcting and improving without perfecting beyond the bounds of reality. I love working with Sam and simply can't imagine engaging another photographer- I'd change my event date if she weren't available!
