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, Arkansas and I help couples remember their wedding day through timeless & priceless photographs.

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.


  • I am a homeschool mom
  • I enjoy off-roading in our old Toyota 4-runner, my favorite places to explore are in the Ozark Mountains
  • I'm a coffee snob and my favorite place to get coffee is Piney Bay Coffee Company
  • I believe a cute pair of earrings is a must to complete an outfit
  • I hate the taste of plain water (yes, it does have a taste and smell)
  • I have a t-shirt problem, if it is cute, soft, and says something I believe in, I'll buy it

My Story...
