Hertfordshire based Wedding Photographer

Hi, I’m Sam. I’m a Hertfordshire based wedding and family lifestyle photographer and I’m here to tell your story. I found photography once I had my children and I love it for its capacity to freeze moments in time, to document love in all of its wild and wonderful forms.

A bit about little old me; I am mumma to two beautiful girls and I love all things pretty and beautiful; rose gold, flowers and bit of sparkle thrown in for good measure.

I love coffee and cake.

I love being able to capture true connection and look forward to seeing what magic we can make.

If this sounds like your bag then I’d love to hear from you.

Everything in your life has led you to this point.

You’re thinking about how you want to capture it, how you’d like to remember these passing days. Maybe you want to have something to turn in your hands once the dust settles. To pass on to family, to have on your wall, to tack onto a love letter.

That’s where I step in. Committed to capturing unique stories, adventures, and everyday love affairs, I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do best day in and day out. Just know that I don’t do things in halves. Book me, and I’m all in. Down for the ride, up for a dance, and here for the real stuff.


From cake smashes to christenings, capture those truly cherished moments. Prices starting from £250; get in touch for more information

Rave Reviews

Hannah and Andrew

Sam was absolutely fab, made us feel so at ease even though we're not massive fans of PDA and photos. The engagement shoot was a really great practice plus we got some special photos from it. Sam captured so many lovely, natural photos of both us and our guests throughout the wedding day, and was very attentive to our wishes. Thank you Sam!!

Dear Sam,
Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day. You made it all so easy for us on the day even the PDA shots! You really went above and beyond for us. We have loved looking through the sea peek gallery and can't wait to see the rest of them.

Emma and Sam

Sam is the loveliest person! She clicked with us at our engagement photoshoot and we were instantly comfortable. On our wedding day, she went above and beyond her role to be there for me was I got ready, and took so many stunning photos that blew us away. I can’t recommend this lovely lady enough and we hope to use her again for other Key events in our lives. Thank you Sam ❤️

Sam captured beautiful natural shots of my daughter and nephews.
We wanted a very organic and playful edit, which captured them at their happiest, playing together
So many beautiful shots,some completely in the moment and others more static
She is FANTASTIC working with children, and made us all feel at ease
Could not recommend enough
Thank you Sam x

Amy Field, Hertfordshire family shoot


Sam is quite simply one of a kind - she is understated, respectful and has the most incredible ability to capture moments of magic perfectly. We have used her on two occasions now - one an intimate family shoot (with our 3 chaotic boys!) and one a larger public event.
Whether you are looking for someone to blend into the background, make guests feel comfortable, or bring the creativity and help direct you a bit more, she is able to do it all. 
A kind, open hearted spirit who we will be using again and again xx
Thank you for our precious pictures Sam and for being such a pleasure throughout.

Michele Noble, Cambridgeshire family shoot


Sam has captured Caspers personality amazingly in the incredible pictures she’s taken for his 1st Birthday Cake smash. Every photo is amazing, absolutely blown away by how beautifully shot they all are, exceeded my expectations.
I was worried that he wouldn’t have wanted to perform but Sam has such a friendly, relaxing and warming but highly professional approach, I didn’t need to as he loved her and performed to the camera.
I will definitely be using Sam for all of our milestone photos in the future.
Thank you for capturing this special moment for us, they are going to be treasured for ever
