Reliable, friendly and amazing quality!
One of the first things I did when planning my wedding was book Sam at Lustre to video our special day. I had already seen her incredible work on my social media and just loved how she captures every special moment. The quality of the video is outstanding, everyone commented on how spectacular it was to watch. Sam is a perfectionist and the final edits - just waow! I met with Sam before our wedding to go over the events of the day. I just knew she would be great with my family and friends. Sam is super friendly and to be honest it was like she wasn't even there. I was worried about the camera always being in our faces and making our guests feel uncomfortable. That did not happen at all as she was always present but in the background, allowing us to enjoy our day. Sam, from the bottom of my heart - thank you! My wedding video is something that I will treasure forever :)Sent on 31/08/2020

Our most beautiful memories captured!!
My husband and I were blown away by Samantha as she juggled both the wedding photography and videography, masterfully! From morning to night, her steady professionalism and positive attitude made everyone feel so relaxed behind the camera—our guests loved her too!! Family photos were especially important to us and not only did she perfectly capture every grouping that we requested, but she was so efficient that we ended 20 minutes ahead of schedule! Samantha is a true artist, so lovely to work with, and has an astonishing talent of capturing wedding magic ✨Sent on 12/08/2020

We could not be happier
Samantha was with us throughout our wedding and she truly captured the most stunning pictures during the day. She was professional, kind and really helpful. We met her twice before the wedding, talked about our ideas and wishes and the places we wanted to take photos at.Sent on 12/09/2020
On the day, she was on time, cheerful and friendly, making everybody feel at ease.
We recommend Samantha to everybody, she is the best.

Samantha is Amazing!
I have always been someone that is camera shy and Samantha was such an amazing person that on my wedding day she made me feel completely comfortable! I was so thankful for her willingness to shoot our wedding even when COVID threw a wrench into all of our plans. She was understanding, helpful and there for us throughout the whole process. Our photos turned out perfectly and we are so thankful that we hired Samantha to be our photographer!Sent on 10/02/2021

Absolutely excellent service from start to finish
Samantha is such an amazingly talented videographer. She was so professional and approachable from start to finish. We loved having the chance to meet up beforehand, having her around on our wedding day was a real joy, she was very calming and helpful. Our highlights film and full wedding video are so treasured. Do not get married without a videographer!! The best investment we made for our day. We would highly recommend Lustre.Sent on 09/09/2020
