More than you would expect!

Sam from Darling Mine was amazing. From our first impression, she was very friendly, easy to get along with and passionate about her work. From initially asking for a quote to having Sam and her partner Jess be with us on our special day, we can't recommend her enough! She was very supportive throughout our hectic day and guests even commented on how efficient and professional she was.

You'll be in the best hands with Sam!

There is no one better!

We were fortunate enough to have worked with Samantha three times: our engagement photos, our COVID mini-wedding in 2020, and then our full reception in 2022! She was so incredibly patient, understanding and flexible during the pandemic, and was always responsive to our questions. But most importantly are photos are INCREDIBLE. She and her team captured so many beautiful moments throughout our wedding that I am so thankful we will cherish forever. If you are looking for someone who will capture moments big and small, Samantha is the right one for you! Everyone has been blown away at the photos! She made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, including my brother in law who has ASD and typically does not like to have his photo taken. Nothing ever felt too posed, and the photos all capture who we are as a couple. I could keep rambling on but you get the point! She's the best! Hire her and you will have a lifetime of stunning photos to look back on.

Perfect Experience!!

Sam of Darling Mine and her assistant Jess were absolutely PERFECT for our wedding day. Sam and I met and instantly clicked. Having her there for all the most intimate moments of the day was just seamless. I told her we wanted mostly candid shots, as we aren鈥檛 huge fans of posed photos and she absolutely nailed it. Our photos are amazing and capture the feelings and vibe of the day so perfectly. I can鈥檛 recommend her enough!!!

Samantha without a doubt was our only choice of photographer after our initial meeting with her. Her style and love for capturing life authentically is what reeled us in from the start. She is a TRUE artist in the industry. We are SOO grateful that she agreed to capture our engagement session and our big day! We felt so comfortable working with her and she produced images that we will forever cherish. With every little detail expertly crafted and planned, Samantha ensured to be professional, keep our wild wedding party in line and produced breathtaking images of us all that showed our true sappy selves. We can鈥檛 wait to continue working with her in the future!!! We will always highly recommend her. She鈥檚 SIMPLY THE BEST!!!

Captured the experience and emotions

Samantha is a wonderful human with an amazing soul! I felt relaxed with her immediately, and felt like old friends. She helped us with so many details, and made planning stress free and enjoyable. Day of, she kept the pictures flowing and everything was cohesive and professional. I feel she went above and beyond my expectations, and accommodated our needs wonderfully. If you want to remember how your wedding day felt, and not just looked, Samantha is the one!

Can't go wrong!

Our experience with Sam has been nothing short of heaven sent! She has been with us since our engagement shoot back in 2019 and bore with us through the pandemic and helped us stay calm. Having her at our wedding felt like we were with just another member of the family. You will not regret hiring her!

Amazing experience

Samantha goes above and beyond for her couples. She is a photographer who brings all of her experience and channels it to create not only amazing photos, but an amazing wedding day itself. She has a great eye, and an even better listening ear for her clients. I can honestly say that without Samantha's help and heart, planning my wedding would have been so so much harder. She helped make our day together so meaningful, and I seriously can't thank her enough!! 5 years later, and I still swoon over my wedding album!! If you want a photographer who cares deeply, and is an expert in their craft, look no further. Samantha is the best!!!

Amazing experience

Sam was the perfect photographer. She made sure we were comfortable the entire day. She kept us on schedule for our pictures, to make sure everything else stayed on time. We ended up with the most beautiful pictures that we will cherish forever.

Wedding Photography Awesomeness

My husband and I got married on December 3rd, 2022 and Samantha was our photographer. She was amazing! We were hesitant about doing an engagement shoot but we decided to go ahead with it so we could meet her in person and practice taking couple shots before our big day as it seemed pretty intimidating for us both. From the moment we met her we knew we choose the right photographer. Sam was so welcoming and made us both feel at ease as we all ventured through a few feet of snow for our shots. It was freezing but she got some amazing pictures of us. Throughout the planning of our wedding Sam's communication with us made us feel so relaxed. On the day of our wedding Sam and Jess were so awesome. They felt like 2 friends coming to share the day with us with the bonus of some amazing pictures. We love our wedding photo's. It was pretty special to get our photos and relive the entire day all over again together. We're so happy that her photo's will be our reminder of that amazing day for the rest of our lives. Thank you Sam for being such a treasure during this entire process and making us feel like your one and only couple everytime. We would highly suggest Darline Mine Photography for any of your photoshoots or events.

Meet the team

Wedding Photographer

Hi! My name is Samantha and I am the face behind the camera at Darling Mine Photography. I've been documenting my own life as long as I can remember and began professionally shooting about 13 years ago. Weddings was something I fell madly in love with about 10 years ago - so many incredible emotional moments and sweet couples with love stories that went beyond just the one day.

I am thankful to be chosen to be there for each of my couples and their wonderful families and friends. It's an honour to be there to document these fleeting moments and details. I use a documentary approach to a wedding day, focusing on the relationships and connections you have with each other and your loved ones.

I can't wait to chat and hope that I can be a good fit for you!
