Words ABSOLUTLY can NOT describe how much I love and appreciate your work! Oh My GOD!! Ali was the photographer and his friend was the videographer. They did an amazing job!! They are very friendly, professional, kind, and absolutely know what they are doing. I highly highly recommend them to everyone. Every penny is worth spending and using their services. Every guest I talk to after the wedding is talking about how kind were these two guys and took care of all guests and family. I am so grateful and happy that Sam's Photography accepted my request to be at our wedding. It was a mix wedding and we had Persian, Pakistani and American guests and everyone enjoyed the night.It was an absolute pleasure to work with you guys. Lots and lots of loves. Cant wait for our next event with you all.

It literally does not get better than SamShots. The SamShots crew made our wedding day unforgettable in many ways. Not only was the crew professional, diligent, hardworking, honest, friendly, and skilled, but they were genuinely fun to be around too. At one point I recall Sam saying "Hey, look over here" and there he was, literally in a bush ready to take our picture. If that isn't dedication I don't know what is. The SamShots photographers and videographers won over our hearts and the hearts of all of our friends and family.

This was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Sam and his team were par excellence! We fell in love during our initial consultation. Sam took the time to show us his work. He was also open to getting our input on what we wanted. We had our engagement shoot with him and he made it fun fun fun!!! The pictures from the wedding were beautiful. He truly captured the day. The guests that couldn't attend the wedding felt they were there because of how well the day was captured. He is the best of the best. I highly recommend. His staff are also super helpful and patient. They walked this whole journey with us as a team and we will be forever grateful. We had a Nigerian wedding and he captured the essence of the tradition, the joy of the day and the preciousness of the moments. Thank you Samshots & Team!

We were unsure at first if we even wanted a videographer for our wedding but after the initial meeting with Sam, I just knew that he would produce something truly special for us. Boy did he deliver and more. His staff was incredibly friendly and professional and made the entire process so fun for us. That is probably why our video completely exceeded expectation. I think I've watched our 7 minute highlight video hundreds of times on my own. The moments captured along with the songs mixed into it made it something unique that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. I would highly recommend Samshots to anyone because you can be assured that he will deliver something truly memorable.

I fell in love with SamShots at a wedding expo, and I am so glad that I did! Sam and his team were a joy to work with. They were extremely patient with us and answered any questions that we had promptly. The day of the wedding they arrived early and with smiles on their faces. The team was very personable and made me feel very at ease. They managed to get shots of all of the big moments of our wedding day and we so happy with the way our photos came out!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! It was an absolute pleasure working with Samshots for our wedding. Sam and his team were an absolute joy to work with during both our engagement shoot and actual wedding day. Sam is FUN, incredibly creative, and very enthusiastic. If you want someone who is creative, can capture details from intriguing angles, and obviously has a true passion for his work, definitely consider Sam and his team for your wedding. They did an amazing job! We used Samshots for our photo and video. They both were amazing! Let’s face it, one thing you can’t skimp on is the photo and video of your special day, and we are so glad we decided to work with Samshots. Anyone can take a picture but it takes a true artist to capture the magic of your special day and that’s what Sam and his team did for us.

Wow! Best review ever! Thank you so much Hoda & Saami! We're speechless! We're so delighted that you liked your photos and videos! Happy anniversary to you!

Samshots and his team were amazing! They were so accommodating with our schedule for our engagement session as we had to change it several times due to work and weather not cooperating. Prior to our wedding we met with Sam to go over the timeline for our big day. Sam and his team are very professional, kind and made us feel so comfortable! We had a team of 6 people on our big day and Sam himself came as well. We had both videography and photography services which was so worth it! It is a must do investment for your big day so your memories live forever. We also recently got our photo album which is so beautiful. Thank you for all your hard work Samshots and team!!

10 out of 10! The day of your wedding can be stressful but Samshots staff made it so much fun while getting ready and made me so comfortable as a bride my groom said that him and the groomsmen had so much fun with the staff while getting ready making them all at ease! They were on time and extremely open minded as well to whatever ides we had as well which was great! Our wedding photos and video came out so flawless and more than beyond what we could imagine! We also did our engagement photos with them which was amazing as well! I highly recommend them as photo and video they will capture all events to perfection!

We hired Samshots for our engagement shoot and wedding. Sam and company provided us with both photography and videography services. We cannot speak highly enough of Sam. He made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot and the photos were absolutely beautiful. Sam listened to all of our requests and made our vision come to life. Sam and his staff were true professionals and went the extra mile to make sure we got everything we wanted. You cannot go wrong with hiring Samshots. We look forward to working with Sam and company again in the future.

Remarkable. That is what my husband and I want to say about Samshots and his team. They are truly one-of-a-kind. We had them video and photograph our wedding and our pictures are just magical. They have always been able to answer any questions and truly have been a breath of fresh air. Their professionalism and work is top notch. We are so impressed by our pictures and video that we can't stop smiling. We just received our album from Samshots and we are blown away. The work on our album is out of this world. We are so incredibly happy that we went with Samshots and his team. If you are thinking about getting married or are getting married please stop looking and hire Samshots. You will not regret this decision. We cannot be happier!

I have not yet recieved service from SamShots. I recently booked their videography and photography service to be provided for my wedding. I have to say, I have been searching for a photographer as well as videographer for more than over a month. Most of the vendors I have reached out didn't even take interest. I felt I actually had to beg them to please take my money. Sorry but when hiring someone to photograph your big day I believe the person should from day 1 make you feel confident that as the client you can rely on them. That us how I felt when I reached out to Sam Shots. The communication has been really upfront and clear. He has replyed fairly fast to my emails unlike others that took days. Plus his pricing is fair. I have seen his photos as well as videos, the quality is amazing. For the prices he offers I believe you get your moneys worth. Other charge way more and their work doesn't look as clean as SamShots. I'm so excited in having him photograph my wedding as well as the video.
