The Wedding Experience

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement! This is such an exciting time and I am so happy to celebrate with you!

One of the things you’ll hear from my past couples is that I step into the role of being an extra bridesmaid on your wedding day! My other title is professional hype woman, which is a good thing because you spend more time with your photographer than you do with any other person on your wedding day. So you definitely want them to be someone you want to hang out with! 

Let’s grab a latte, chat about all the details, and see if we’re a good fit! These days our double dates are more and more virtual, so if that’s the best fit then I would love to jump on a Facetime call to chat about all the details. Otherwise we can go to a local coffee shop to chat. I’m excited to get to know you better! 

Take a peek into what the Susannah Lynn wedding experience looks like below: 

The wedding experience

I love fairytales! Couples who are madly in love have all the elements of a real life fairytale, and your love story is magical!

I feel so honored, and blessed, every time a new couple picks me to join in on that magic! So much thought and planning goes into helping two people come together to start a new life, and it starts so much earlier than the wedding day. I am here to help walk you through the entire process from the planning, to the engagement, to the day you say "I Do."

Booking & Planning

Any guesses who you spend the most time with on your wedding day? If you guessed your photographer you're right! That's why you should love your photographer! By the time your wedding rolls around we will feel like old friends! We'll have lots of check ins and a double date or two throughout the process. But our friendship starts here!  I can't wait to learn more about you and your love story!

engagement session

Let's make things official! When you're ready to book I'll create an online portal for all your important documents! First up are your contract and retainer - once those are taken care of then your wedding date is locked into my calendar! Officially and exclusively yours. But we can't forget about the other goodies. I will create a custom timeline for you based on our initial meeting and upload it to your portal. This can be shared with all your other vendors, so when your HMUA asks you what time you need to be ready you already know! You'll also be able to schedule your engagment session based on when works  best for you directly from the portal!

viewing & ordering

Engagement sessions are my absolute favorite part of the pre-wedding process. I'll help you with all the details - outfits, location, etc! We'll use this time not only to capture this moment in your lives, but also so we can get to know each other even better! On your wedding day you'll feel super confident behind the camera! No jitters just fun! 

Let's practice!

Double dates

One of my greatest joys is creating heirlooms for your family and art for your walls. Because of this I offer an exclusive reveal and ordering session for my wedding clients. I invite you to come view your images in person with snacks and drinks. Here you will select your favorite images, and I’ll put them together for you in a wedding guest book - my gift to you! And if you have a lonely wall, an empty spot on your desk, or want to include an image on your “save the dates” ... I offer those too. No matter the purpose, fine art prints give your space life,  and should be enjoyed daily.

Viewing and Ordering

your wedding day

The months leading up to your wedding is when everything really comes together. One of the benefits of booking with me is that I only take 12 weddings a year, so I can make your wedding and our friendship a priority. That includes two double dates! One where myself and my husband will take y'all out to dinner. (Remember the goal is that your family and friends ask how we know each other!) The other is for a final planning meeting. You can ask any last minute questions, go over must have photos, and finalize the timeline. Plus if I'm available I'll attend walk throughs and meetings so you can wake up on your wedding day knowing that everything is taken care of, and you can stay stress free.

Your big day is finally here! It will be a whirlwind of joy, hugs, and laughter. I am forever grateful that I get to capture those precious memories. So you can look back on them in your quiet moments, and remember the love you felt. I take a people focused approach to capturing your wedding day from the details to the  portraits to the candid moments. You can count on your gallery to be filled with the faces that you love!

Plus the week following your wedding day you'll receive sneak peeks! That’s right, while your guests are still unpacking, and you are still sipping drinks on the beach, you get a sneak peak into your wedding images.

cue the confetti!

Your Wedding Day!

let's chat

Your wedding day has come and gone, and now your marriage is in its first months. What could be a better way to celebrate than by reliving your wedding day together? You can expect to receive your online gallery approximately four - six weeks following your wedding. Make a date night of it and spend some time talking about your favorite moments from your wedding day. From your online gallery you’ll be able to download and share your high-resolution digital files. Most importantly, you can highlight your favorite images for your album design. I will get those images off of your computer screen, and into your everyday life.

Sam is the absolute best!! We were blown away with how awesome the engagement pictures were, and couldn’t wait for her to capture our big day. And, of course, our wedding pictures were AMAZING. We truly felt lucky to have found her. From the start, Sam made us feel comfortable and we really have enjoyed working with her. Sam provides specific instruction while photographing you which makes it so much easier. She is so much fun to work with, and genuinely cares about the couples she works with. Overall, Sam went above and beyond all expectations we had, and we highly recommend her!!

- Treva and Bryan

Sam went from being just our photographer to someone I truly consider to be a friend! She was so helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process and was there to offer advice and give input whenever I had a question.  She worked so well with all of our family members and guests, too! All of my bridesmaids fell in love with her and her bubbly personality! The photographs were more perfect than I could have ever asked for! So many people have commented on how beautiful her work is. She captured every detail and moment perfectly, and I'm so thankful to have those photos to look back on for years to come! I'm so thankful our paths crossed on social media. I highly recommend Sam to anyone searching for a photographer!

- Lisa and Jarret

One of the best decisions my husband and I ever made was deciding to have Sam take our wedding photos! Sam is one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet, and she literally never disappoints. We did our engagement photos in Sedona and Flagstaff and drove all the way there with her. It was like going on a trip with a friend we had known for years because she’s just so easy to get along with! We were so in love with every wedding photo that it was hard to pick favorites. She’s just so good at what she does that we’re sad for all the couples out there that don’t pick her as their wedding photographer. It was an absolute pleasure working with Sam and gaining a lifelong friend as well!

- Tara and Scott

We LOVED working with Sam. From our very first meeting with her through after the wedding when we received our final album, Sam was so much fun to work with, and of course she delivered beautiful photos and memories for us to cherish! From the start, Sam had a warm and inviting presence that made us feel comfortable trusting her to capture our big day. Our engagement shoot reassured us that we had chosen the perfect photographer for us. She made us feel comfortable and great about ourselves and made the whole experience fun and enjoyable. The wedding day was no different. Sam is a pro and knows exactly what to do to capture all aspects of the wedding. Both of our families commented on how much they liked and appreciated our photographer and how she handled the extended family! 

- Kate and Camron

Sam made the whole process leading up to my wedding and on my wedding day so relaxing. She really cared about what I was wanting for that day and made it all happen. All my guests loved her and appreciated that she also captured them as well. Every single photo I loved and appreciated beyond words. The pictures were dreamy and something out of a fairy tale. Most of my friends who have gotten married, never spoke with their photographer after the big day, but Sam makes you feel apart of something special. You were one of HER brides not just another bride and she still stays in touch. I feel very lucky that I was able to book, get to know, and consider Sam a special part in my husband and my story!

say hello

I'm so excited to hear from you! Let's get the party started

for the couples who want to create joyful memories

More than ten years ago, I photographed my first wedding. That first wedding was the start of a journey I couldn’t be happier to be on! Photographing love stories has been the source of countless joys and so many dear friendships in my life. 

A few years ago I got married and life after our wedding is the best journey I’ve every been on. It’s given me real insight into what we value most, which is our friends and our family.

My favorite moments from wedding days are the ones with your chosen family. Your gallery will be filled with those moments. You’ll get to see your family in the first row watching you get married. And your grandparents hanging out at the cocktail hour. Speaking of cocktail hour – you can expect pictures of your guests looking at the camera and smiling so that you can go back through and remember who came to celebrate your wedding day with you!
