Guiding you through natural posing + catching cute candids

Arizona wedding photography for all lovers

Real talk: I love this photo because it doesn't show my legs or butt. It's a little easier when I've got my boo with me because I can strategically hide behind him a lil and basically cut my pear self in half.

That's why I try to be transparent when it comes to posing - I'll show you what to do. I'll direct you for the most flattering photos that still look and feel like you so that you can focus on the moments, the emotions, and each other.

I'm Samantha Patri

Seriously every single couple! Every couple you're seeing on my site and social media have told me the same thing. "Sam we're awkward!" "we're not photogenic!" "my fiancé hates getting his picture taken!"

No sweat though, I gotchu. I'll help you get comfortable and give you silly prompts to make you laugh. I mean, do any of these couples look awkward to you?

everyone says that

Not comfortable in front of a camera?

- Macie + Brandon

You completely captured every emotion and thing from the day! Thank you thank you thank you!"

"There isn't a single one I don't love!

- Eliana + Tyler

She shot our engagement photos and wedding photos and I could not be happier with the outcome! Sam, thank you for capturing these memories, you are truly the best!"

She was the most easygoing, friendly, and personable photographer.

"PLEASE do yourself a favor and hire Samantha!! She is beyond amazing and her photos speak for themselves in terms of skill.

- Elizabeth + Justin

Thank you so much!! Seriously. Girl you are miraculous! My heart is so full! You made today so fun and effortless! Best wedding decision we've made!"
