Hubby & I couldn't have been happier with Samantha Valencia's work. She did what she truly does best, capturing moments in time to last a life time.
She demonstrates an extraordinary ability to take pictures that are so organic in nature. She was also aware of my personal "flaws" (there is always that one thing we just don't like about ourselves). She was able to take pictures that always captured my best. I look back at my wedding photos often with a smile on my face. I just can't enough at looking at them.
She is incredibly detailed oriented and demonstrates solid interpersonal communication skills from day 1. She listens actively to the bride and groom to ensure that she has "big picture" scope on what you are really looking for. (Something that lacked from other photographers when we were shopping around).
The day of, she was cool as a cucumber. Never in the way and had a way of blending in to avoid taking away from the moment.
We couldn't recommend Samantha enough! I have recommended her to many friends and I know who to go to if I ever need another photographer.Sent on 06/10/2020

Couldn't Imagine Our Day Without Her!
Hiring Sam to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! She was recommended to us by family and we are so glad we found her. From the engagement shoot to our wedding, she listened to every worry, concern or detail I wanted documented. She was organized, punctual and so friendly with us.
She truly made my husband and I (who tend to be nervous around cameras) feel so comfortable. She has the most amazing ability and talent that allows her to capture candid moments that look and feel so natural.
We can't wait to continue working with her in the future as our family grows!Sent on 05/04/2021

Very professional yet fun!
We had an exceptional experience working with Sam for our wedding. Right from the start she was professional, timely, and very outgoing. She took the time to get to know what we were about and how we wanted the day to proceed. We couldn't be happier with the results! Our photos turned out amazing, and she made sure to capture all of the right moments. The editing is on point as well! We look forward to using Sam in the future as our family grows. Thanks Sam!Sent on 22/10/2020

Such a great person, highly recommend!
Sam is absolutely outstanding! She captured our day in the most exquisite way, we could not be happier. She was early for the day, and scoped out the location before hand. She made sure my hair and makeup team were on schedule and that she had the time to get me memories of everything I had imagined. Her personality was the best, one of her best qualities in my opinion. It felt like your best friend was with you for the entire day, helping you keep everything running smoothly so as to never miss the perfect moments. She was so easy to talk to and made my husband and I both so comfortable. The end result was a full suite of beautiful images that are now bound in a leather coffee table book for the world to see and in print all over my walls. I highly recommend Sam, you cannot go wrong! Thank you Sam for all of your hard work and beautiful pictures. Our day would not have been the same without you.Sent on 17/09/2020

Simply the Best
My husband and I were lucky enough to have Sam as our destination wedding photographer. She is the real deal. She goes above and beyond for her clients ensuring that every special moment is captured. I did not have to put one ounce of thought or energy into worrying about our photos. Sam scoped out the resort days in advance and created an amazing vision for our wedding day shoot as well as trash the dress shoot! She was over the top flexible, managing to capture every memory while happily working alongside the hotel wedding day schedule and videographer. Not only is Sam professional, a visionary, and extremely talented, she is also fun, positive and just uplifting. She's the kind of energy you want around you to capture your most special moments. We're forever grateful to her for gifting us with such an amazing wedding gallery that we will cherish for years to come.Sent on 18/09/2020

Hi, I am Samantha .
I am a mother of two precious little girls. A wife to the best husband ever!
In honesty my career path was not always geared towards photography. I was actually a trainer first, I had two successful fitness studios before I was 22 years old. The stress of running gyms, dealing with the very “CRAZY and STRESSFUL” non stop gym lifestyle! I fell into anxiety and depression.
The biggest obstacle my husband and I were facing was killing me! I couldn’t get pregnant, we tried & tried , but nothing. Fast forward a year and half, I sought out fertility treatments. The Doctors plain out told me, my lifestyle with the stress I was under, It was playing a big role in my fertility problems.
I remember all I really wanted in my life at that point, was a baby. Felt like, that was what my life was missing. So with the support of my amazing husband we closed the gyms.
I had a few rounds of fertility treatments and I got my 1st Angel Mila Grace!
When my daughter Mila was born, I saw life in a completely different way! I all of a sudden had this fascination with freezing time, and found another obsession with natural light! As a present my husband brought home my, first DSLR Camera so I didn’t miss a beat with our new baby.
The first minute I picked that camera and captured Mila. I knew that I found everything I was looking for! I knew exactly then, that I was gonna make it my mission, to learn every single thing I could about my camera. The Art and the different styles of photography. The rest was history.
I absolutely love that I am blessed that people trust me to capture there precious moments. Freezing that bit of time, in a photographic journal!
I literally could cry , I have found my passion. I get up everyday and say I love my job!
Since then I have worked on countless weddings And have been published multiple times in Bridal magazines.
