    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!

    Darling Mine Photography's reply:

    Thank you so so much - I truly loved being a part of your day and also immediately felt like a friend from the moment we met! You were both so welcoming and your day was such a blast! Thank you again for leaving such kind words!

    Simply the BEST!

    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’t wait to continue working with her in the future!!! We will always highly recommend her. She’s SIMPLY THE BEST!!!

    Perfect for Our Wedding

    We hired Samantha for our wedding last weekend. From the first time we met her, she was hired! My husband and I instantly fell in love with her professionalism, caring personality, and charm. From day one, she took the time to see if I needed anything or even dropped in to say hello. On our wedding day, she was so understanding and always took the time to ensure that I was okay. She fit right in with my wedding guests, and had a blast at the guest table with my family. Thank you so much, Samantha!!!

    The perfect choice!

    They say your wedding day goes fast, and it’s the truth. So much planning and anticipation for a single day and then it’s gone. This is why it is so important to have a great photographer. You want someone to capture the little moments, the big moments, everything you felt (so many emotions!) and how much it all meant. When I look at our wedding photos I see it all, and I love knowing I will always be able to look at them and recall with such clarity all those moments. Samantha – Darling Mine Photography is an amazing photographer and I am so glad we chose her to capture our big day. There could not have been a better fit for us on this monumental journey. She was such an asset during the planning; she is organized, always got back to us quickly and was there for anything we needed. I thought it might feel strange to be photographed but she put us at ease and was able to capture images that truly show our love for each other. The day of, Samantha and her assistant were fantastic. As a person Samantha is warm, kind and thoughtful, just absolutely lovely. She was so great to work with and we love all the images she captured for us. I highly recommend Darling Mine Photography!

    Darling Mine Photography's reply:

    The most heartfelt thank you for such kind words - you literally brought me to tears! I am blessed to have been there for you both and can't say enough how amazing your day was! It was truly an honour to meet you both as well as your friends and families.

    My husband and I can't say enough about Samantha. First of all, she was incredibly kind, helpful and responsive during the whole process of planning. During the engagement session, and the wedding, her presence had my husband and I feeling comfortable enough to express our genuine feelings, and she and her assistant Jessica captured them perfectly. We've already got a few teaser shots back and they are incredibly stunning. She's also got amazing reflexes - she was right there, with her camera out capturing every significant moment throughout the night. (My husband said that he thought in another life she could have been a gunslinger in the old west)! We have total peace of mind that the memories our special day was perfectly documented and preserved thanks to her amazing work.

    Darling Mine Photography's reply:

    Holly and Evan - there are not enough words to describe how thankful I am to have been a part of not only your day, but your lives. You two are remarkable and so incredibly sweet! Thank you so much for allowing me that opportunity to document your day!

    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!!!

    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!

    Darling Mine Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such kind words! I'm thankful I could be there for you both throughout this process and the difficulties of the pandemic. You were so thoughtful and caring and your wedding day was truly beautiful. Thankful for you both!

Meet the Team

Samantha
Samantha
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!
