What do you do when you're not photographing couples?
I love getting out to snowboard and visiting the coasts; chowder on Oregon coast.

What do you want people to know?
I caught the photo bug from my Dad. He took photos of horses jumping and I fell in love with the athleticism and movement. I Incorporate my love of the outdoors by photographing couples in love and capturing incredible moments.
I started my business based on this idea. I help couples plan locations for weddings and photos. I acquire the necessary permitting and I am a licensed officiant. It's just "one big photography adventure."

Hey, I'm Sam! I'm an adventure elopement and intimate wedding photographer, and it's my goal to encourage couples to have a wedding experience that sets their soul on fire. I was born and raised in Oregon on a ranch and on top of being an outdoorswoman, I like a lot of things. I'm an ass-kicker, motorcycle rider, Game of Thrones/Sherlock/LOTR/Harry Potter watcher, crier when animals are hurt, geology lover, horseback rider, community theatre actor, and musician.
My hubs and I are no strangers to backpacking or roughing it in the wilderness but we love a good stroll on the beach followed by a bowl of clam chowder just as much. We also love traveling. I've lived abroad and speak a couple languages (French almost fluently). Traveling and experiencing the outdoors/new cultures is what my husband and I consider a priority in our lives. Those experiences are worth more to us than any physical gift. It's why I talk so much about #experiencesoverthings.
When I'm outside photographing my adventure elopement couples, or just exploring with my husband, Wigwams are my go-to socks. I use them for pretty much everything - hiking, snowboarding, wearing with tall (fashion) boots, lounging around the house in leggings, hopping on a plane, you name it. When couples aren't sure what to wear for hiking elopements, I recommend their favorite pair of hiking boots and a good sock like Wigwams. I tell them to trust me, it'll save them from later pain.
I'm excited to be a Wigwam Ambassador - it allows me to share the awesomeness that is Wigwam and all their products. I have, and will continue, to do sock giveaways and share more info on my Instagram (@sphotographyco) so others can try them out!
