    A lovely wedding day made more lovely by our photographer

    Sam was great from prep to finish. Met us in advance at the venue to discuss requirements. Ensured everything was understood and communicated well. On the day she exceeded expectations. Captured our day and the fun relaxed feeling of our day to a tee. Worked so hard all day and evening. Photo results were so lovely my husband has had some enlarged and displayed on acrylic in the house (again produced by Sam). We were so happy with the service and pictures we had arranged for Sam to come over to the UK this summer to be official photographer at his daughters wedding. Thank you 馃槉

    Lovely experience!

    Sam did a wonderful job photographing our wedding in September 2019. She responded to any queries we had quickly, and was professional throughout. On the day, Sam and her colleague Gemma made sure they got great shots without being intrusive and we loved the more natural styling of the pictures. Great work ladies, thanks for capturing our day so well! Kirsty & Nadj xx

    Incredible!

    Sam is amazing! She has done both our engagement and wedding photos. She thinks out side of the box and her creativity is out of this world. We will treasure our photos forever.

    Cancelled two days prior to our ceremony

    Devastated. Hired a few weeks ago for our backyard covid19 zoom wedding. Virtual meeting, site visit, told she would draw up the contract to sign - didn't happen. Cancelled via a text message.

    Looking for new photographer/videographer two days before our outdoor wedding, so very disappointing and stressful.

    Wild Ridge Photo + Film's reply:

    I agree it is such a shame that the Ontario Government have forced me to close.

    It was challenging to determine if wedding photography services were possible during a Lockdown. Unfortunately after much consultation, it was advised that it is classed as a non-essential service and I would be liable for a $10,000 fine if I were to attend.

    When we spoke via Zoom you mentioned text was your preferred way of contact.

    I have offered a photo/video session once the Lockdown has ended and had an idea to offer you my audio recorders for your ceremony so that I can put them together with your ceremony livestream recording but you didn't get back to me.

    I feel like we were a great fit and your story really inspired me to want to be involved. If you are interested in the audio idea with a post lockdown photo/video session then please get in touch :)

    Absolute perfection!

    Everything was really organised and Sam kept me up to date from start to finish. We met for coffee to discuss what I'd like and Sam was really professional and friendly. She knew everything that we wanted and really catered for that. On the day Sam got all of the pictures that we wanted and some lovely ones of our guests. We was very happy with the photo album we got and the photos we got of us as a couple. We felt our special day got captured really well and couldn't be happier!

    Absolutely superb photographer

    Sam was fantastic from the get go.
    Really easy booking process. We didn鈥檛 get to meet Sam until the wedding day but that did not matter. Sam got on with it with no pressure from us. She respected our wishes and created some artist shots with little effort.
    We are so very happy with our pictures 馃槉

    Fantastic experience from start to finish

    Sam went above and beyond for our wedding. She has a natural way of easing your nerves and capturing the most beautiful shots without you even noticing she鈥檚 there.

    From our engagement shoot to the actual wedding, Sam became more than just our photographer, she was part of the special day for us and we loved the final results from her endless hard work.

    We couldn鈥檛 have asked for more at a great price! I highly recommend Wild Ridge for your photography needs!

    Superb experience & fantastic wedding photos!

    Sam was an incredible photographer and we were delighted not only with the quality of her work but also her planning and attention on the wedding day.
    Aside from this Sam was calming, unobtrusive and a thoroughly nice person! A pleasure to deal with!

Meet the Team

Sam
Sam
Photographer / Filmmaker

I'm Sam, a Brit in Canada + I love love.

The thing that hits me in the heart the most, though is the fact that these pictures + films of the most special + authentic day of your lives, doesn鈥檛 end there. In fact it will never end. They become part of your family history that very day. They will get passed down to your children, who will pass them down to their children. What an incredible, tangible thing to share down your family tree.

I feel so passionate about documenting big life moments. It鈥檚 something my parents did to me as a kid, and that I do with my own kids now.

There is nothing more rewarding than handing over a gallery of images or a wedding film to a couple. Gah! I get tingles at the thought!

Whether your dream is a small elopement, whisked away with your absolute nearest + dearest, or a wonderful celebration with your entire entourage of family + friends. I鈥檓 there.

I will literally become your wedding best friend, who happens to have a camera attached 馃檪

Covering Edmonton, Red Deer, Lloydminster, Canmore, Banff, Jasper, Calgary + beyond. I love an adventure!
