Sam and I met for an impromptu photo shoot. I am blown away by the talent she has. Never, ever have I EVER felt so absolutely stunning after having my makeup done. If I could hire her as my daily personal MUA, I WOULD!! Thankful her Communications major didn’t steal her away. You couldn’t ask for better, really!!

Samantha and Gina were incredible!! Definitely recommend them to anyone out there that needs photographers. They were professional and have a unique modern edge to their style. Thank you ladies so much for taking pictures at my wedding!
— Cheyenne & Julian S.
Samantha invested the time to learn what we liked and what was important to us. She took the effort to make us comfortable and really captured us. We can’t recommend Samantha enough. We will always have Samantha take our important pictures.

Samantha was absolutely wonderful to work with! She is extremely professional and friendly, and my brother and future sister-in-law loved their engagement photos!

Samantha had a great attitude and was on time the day of my appointment. She is very friendly and professional. She is very skilled and knowledgeable of makeup and the latest looks. I loved how she explained everything she was doing and asked what I liked and didn’t like she made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. I would highly recommend her for your next event and I am definitely hiring her back for any future events I attend.

Samantha was ah-may-zing! My husband and I haven’t received our pictures yet but by looking at her other work we are assured that our pictures will turn out great!! Samantha came to the site on time and even had her husband assist her during the photo shoot. My husband and I did a photo shoot at the beach which was absolutely epic! The sunset displayed shades of pink, purple, and orange which was gorgeous. My husband and I adore Samantha and her approachable ways as a photographer. Samantha is both professional and friendly at the same time. We will definitely recommend her to other friends and family! She made our day today and yes, I decided to trash my dress in the waves that were crashing at me which I do not regret. Five stars and up for Samantha Rae Photography!

Samantha is AMAZING! She did both my makeup and my photography and I couldn’t be happier! The photos were exactly what I wanted, not posed, just natural and they were exquisite. I highly recommend Samantha.

Samantha did my makeup for my wedding and I LOVE IT!!!! She was very sweet and did a great job. I like a more natural looking makeup. I’m very picky when it comes to let someone do my makeup because they always apply a lot of product and I feel like I have a mask on. but Samantha did it just right, no too excessively. she exceeded my expectations
— Sonia G.
amazing I was thrilled she totally nailed my wedding makeup xo

Samantha took my daughter’s graduation pictures. The experience was amazing from scheduling, to makeup, to the on site shoot, to the preview and ordering. Highly recommend her for your professional makeup and photography needs.

We had a great family session! Samantha was very laid back and friendly. Our pictures came out beautiful! Very pleased!
— Lesley R.
The entire process was amazing from start to finish. We had done a photo shoot recently and the experience felt very unnatural. But with Samantha (and Alan!) we were truly taken care of! The scenery was beautiful, but honestly we were put in such perfect situations to make the most of it.

Thanks so much again!

Working with Samantha was a dream. She did a wonderful make up job with high end products. Being from out of town it was so stress free to work with Samantha as she had a bunch of great outdoor places to choose from. My fiance and I would love to work with Samantha again and would highly recommend her as both a make up artist and photographer.
— Allison M.
I loved it ((((:!!! my brows were phenomenal and the eyeliner was so so so good! it looked amazing and she was sooooo nice and sweet too so i recommend her!!
— Ivy N.
I love working with Samantha! She is very professional and has an amazing eye for a good shot in photography! She did my makeup flawlessly! She is very creative and doesn’t mind getting a little dirty for a good shot! I love how my pictures turned out!
— Courtney S.
The best part about working with Sam was that she’s not afraid of color. For a fun photo shoot, she was willing to play with bolder colors which I never would on my own. I think this says something about versatility but also pushing some people out of their comfort zone and still making them feel beautiful! I also liked that she was never rushing through any part of the process and took the time to correct things and was open to suggestions that I made throughout the process. Other who have done my make up made me uncomfortable to making suggestions, but sam was open to it, and listened to changes or suggestions I wanted! Loved my bold look for this day!
— Patricia C.
She was professional and really easy to talk to. what I loved most was that Sam really listened to find out what kind of look I was going for (I’m very picky with how my eyebrows are done and winged eyeliner) and she delivered perfectly. I would absolutely go back for another make up session with Sam, you won’t go wrong choosing her as your make up artist for your event
— Genesis J.
I’ve had her do my makeup multiple times for multiple events... she can master any look, from natural to full-blown Vegas-ready. Highly recommend!

Samantha did a wonderful job helping me with my engagement photos!
