While there are many things I love, a few of my favorites are, spending time off-roading with my hubby and three girls, running 5Ks, coffee, and watching the sunrise!

“What do you do?” That’s such a loaded question, isn’t it?! If I ran into you down the Walmart bread aisle, my quick response would be that I’m a photographer who is passionate about serving my clients and community. However, if I was able to have a long sit-down visit with you I’d tell you that, after praying for God to show me what my purpose was in life, He gave me a desire to take photographs and a camera to take them with. It’s one of those passions that I would go out and do for free if that was economical. Being able to serve my community and people is super important and I love that I get to do it this way. I would also tell you that photographs are one of the most important possessions that I myself have because once you lose somebody you love you realize that a photograph is more than priceless!

Kind Words

“First of all, Samantha was a joy to work with, and having her as our photographer made our wedding day all the better. She planned ahead, paid a lot of attention to what kind of photos we had asked for, and got exactly what we wanted without taking an exorbitant amount of time for portraits and without being intrusive. Her sweet, fun, kind attitude about everything set us at ease. Secondly, I love my wedding photos! They turned out so beautifully! Third, she absolutely went above and beyond for us. We didn’t ask for a wedding video, but she put one together for us just for “practice” (I’m not sure she needed it), and I love it! And that’s just one example. She really poured her heart and time and skill into making our wedding and our photos wonderful. I highly recommend Welch Photography for anything, but I can especially personally endorse her for weddings.”
~Claire Cotner

“I can not say enough good things about Welch Photography. Firstly, Samantha suggested a wonderful location for the photographs and chose the perfect timing to take the pictures to give them a sunny glow. She acted professionally as well as knowing the most flattering positions to place us in. The shoot did not contain any awkward lulls, and the overall experience wonderful. I highly recommend Samantha Welch for any photographic needs you may have.”
~Abigail Garrett

"We went to Samantha for my daughter's senior pics! She was amazing! We absolutely loved how they turned out! She worked with us on doing some in her prom dress since she more than likely wouldn’t get one (and we were right). Overall great prices, great person, and overall AMAZING work! I definitely recommend Samantha Welch for all your photo needs!"
~Bianca Cruz

Samantha is by far one of the sweetest and most talented photographers I know. She not only cares about the people she is photographing but also captures the most beautiful photos. She takes into consideration the wants of her customers but also throws in her own style, and the end result is stunning. I am still in awe of how beautiful my wedding photos came out. If I could give Samantha more than a five-star review, I would!
~Roseanna Ketterer

“She was so patient with us as we found the perfect location for our family. She was so genuine and sweet. We all loved her. And her photography, she does amazing!! We highly recommend!”
~Rachel Morrow

"Samantha has such a warm and comforting personality and it shines through to her photos. She was quick to make us and our small children feel comfortable in front of the camera and we received some beautiful fall photos to go with the memory."
~Victoria Byers

"Samantha was so patient with us and our 2 year old son. He is medically complex and required frequent breaks making our session run longer than originally planned. She took it in stride and made us feel so welcome and comfortable! She even took the time to send a few previews in order to double-check our editing style preferences! We traveled 3 hours to meet with Samantha and would gladly do it again for the beautiful family photos we got!"
~Emily Williams
