We were so thrilled that Sam had an opening and was able to photograph our small backyard wedding. She was full of photo opt ideas and we are beyond impressed with every photo she captured of our special day! She has such a down to earth personality that makes you feel at ease and as if you have known her for years. She was loved by all of our guests and we will treasure our beautiful photos for years!Sent on 15/02/2021

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 😊Sent on 18/04/2019

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 xxSent on 01/01/2020

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.Sent on 16/04/2019

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.Sent on 29/12/2020
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.

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’t 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’s 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’m there.
I will literally become your wedding best friend, who happens to have a camera attached 🙂
Covering Edmonton, Red Deer, Lloydminster, Canmore, Banff, Jasper, Calgary + beyond. I love an adventure!
