I help you look your best on your best day ever through playful, stress-free photos.


Guiding you through natural posing + catching cute candids

Arizona wedding photography for all lovers

I'm a wedding + elopement photographer based in the gorgeous state of Arizona. From engagement, to wedding, to maternity: I'm in!

I'm 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 each other and whatever stunning location we're in.

Hey! I'm Samantha Patri

outdoor enthusiast, bookworm, and photographer

What's the sitch?

1. Once you fill out my contact form, I'll make sure I'm available and get back to you with detailed pricing —usually within 24 hours.

2. We choose the perfect package for you or create one to best suit your needs. We can hop on a call or just stick to email. Carrier pigeon by request only.

3. You sign your contract proposal and secure your date with a flat $750 deposit. Your proposal will explain your monthly payment schedule so there's no confusion. It's all online and in one place: easy peasy.

4. Happy dances commence as we celebrate being officially booked!

5. You make out in a pretty place with me third-wheeling. AKA, your engagement session.

6. You get married and party the night away!


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 their 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?

- 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.

- 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!

- 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!"

"OMGGGGGGG I never imagined I would ever feel beautiful and love a picture of myself but I LOVE these?!!
