I'm Sammie B. I've been married to my best friend for 13 years. He's a pretty sexy human being. We have two amazing daughters. Madeleine is a sassy and social eight year old who has the spirit of a poet. We adopted our second daughter, Margot, this year. She's still a baby, but her little personality shines so bright.

My tiny family and I are travelers at heart with a love for the west coast, but our roots are deep in sweet tea and biscuits. I was born and raised on a small horse farm outside of Nashville, TN, but today we split our time between our two homes in California and North Carolina.

I'm an accidental photographer. I studied education and psychology at Belmont University, but I picked up a camera in 2012 just as I planned to start graduate school and realized that I wanted pursue something different. Today, I focus primarily on weddings and portraits, shooting both digital and film.


It's the only thing you can buy that makes you richer. My family and I are based in both North Carolina and California, though we consider home base to be Raleigh, NC. My heart is happiest when I'm skipping around the world, so if you are planning a destination wedding or if you just want an epic engagement session in Paris or on an Asheville mountain top, please reach out.

Sammie was an absolute dream to work with. Her pictures of our wedding were absolutely stunning and something that I will treasure forever.

There is no way for me to describe how spectacular her pictures were. Flawless, captivating, timeless, elegant, glamorous...and all the other wonderful adjectives you can think of
