I am Sam, the name and the face behind Always Smiling Photography. I am an adventurous wedding & elopement photographer with a diploma in professional photography. My journey began with good old film photography when I experienced the magic of developing a roll of film in the dark room. I have always been a people person and worked in the customer service industry for many years whilst practicing photography on the side. Once I captured my first wedding though, I was hooked. The pure emotion, the adventure, creating everlasting moments to last a lifetime, that's what brought me to where I am today.
So in case you didn't know, I love anything and everything to do with adventure!! I am a globe trotter and spent 13 months traveling throughout Australia, SE Asia & New Zealand. Looking to Elope? I got you.
I could probably live off waffles and popcorn and my partner and I are up for the award of 'Nerdiest Couple'. We rescued our wonderful dog, Monkey (pictured with me) and are now a family of three. We all enjoy snuggles on the couch and going out on adventures together. Also hats, I love hats, so if we are meeting up and you can't find me- look for the girl with the hat and the smile :)
Sam is amazing, our wedding photos turned out beautiful!! It rained on our wedding day which added to the rustic, autumnal vibes I wanted, in the photos you can see the little droplets of rain - its stunning. I still can't believe how nice the photos turned out. We are so glad we chose her! - Brynna
