Samantha Welch, Welch Photography, Clarksville Arkansas Wedding Photographer
Arkansas Wedding & Engagement Photographer

Hey there! I'm Samantha...

But I'm better known as Sam, Sammy, or Mom repeated five or six times in a row! I'm a wedding and engagement photographer based in Clarksville but I travel all over the state of Arkansas.
I'm just a girl who loves Jesus, is a big fan of sunrises, sunflowers, blankets straight out of the dryer, and spending time kayaking and exploring Arkansas with my husband, Justin, and our three daughters, Lily, Kate, and Allie.

More About Me


  • A little bit of a coffee snob; I grind beans fresh every morning before brewing
  • I believe a cute pair of earrings is a must to complete an outfit
  • I hate the taste of water
  • Nature refreshes my soul
  • I try to live by the idea that every second can be your fresh start.
