Captivating wedding photography for couples in love who want precious images of those special moments to remember their wedding day..... Exciting times....you're getting married!! I love weddings and capturing the story of a wedding day is a truly awesome privilege. Seeing the grooms face as he see's his bride for the first time never ceases to take my breathe away! Experiencing all the love and emotion of the ceremony followed by the all out crazy dancing at the reception makes weddings an amazingly fun, unique and special event...and being there to capture it makes me feel like the luckiest person ever! My approach to wedding photography is more of a lifestyle approach, keeping it natural and relaxed whilst remaining unobtrusive. I much prefer to capture the real and un-posed images that tell the story of your day but obviously there have to be some posed group shots. I look for the details, the moments and the romance and bring them all together to tell your story. Your wedding is unique to you and I would love to hear all about it!! I'm based in Staffordshire and just by the edge of Cheshire but travel all over the UK as well as abroad!

We knew she was the photographer for us!
Sam was the photographer at our wedding on 6th October 2018 and we honestly believe she is the best wedding photographer there is! From the moment we met Sam we knew she was the photographer for us. To say Sam is friendly, enthusiastic and passionate about her work is an understatement; she made us feel even more excited about our wedding than we already were! Sam arrived at the bride’s house bright and early and she honestly did not stop all day. When the girls were getting ready, she was on hand to help with everything girly, she kept everyone calm whenever there were moments of nerves, provided lots of laughter and was generally a great addition to our morning! Throughout the day, Sam mixed with all of our guests and didn’t miss a moment to snap a great photo. We are so pleased with how natural our photos are and how many special moments she captured. From the first dance to late into the night, Sam was on the dance floor getting stuck in with the dancing, making people laugh and capturing great moments. We had so many guests come to us to comment on what an amazing photographer she is. You were not just a photographer Samantha Jayne Sadler, you were such a big part of our day. We couldn’t possibly have asked for any more from you and we honestly can’t thank you enough, Mat and Sarah Nicholls xxxx

The most amazing photographer ❤️
Sam was the most amazing photographer we have ever come across. She is fun, bubbly and makes you feel so at ease. Her excellent photography skills made sure we have the most adorable yet natural photographs we could ever have wished for. One in a million and couldn’t recommend Sam enough.

The amazingly talented Sam!
As mother of the bride of Sarah (Sarah and Mat’s wedding of 6th October at Aston Marina), there’s only one thing to say about Sam - what an incredible person with such talent and unbelievable enthusiasm for her love of photography. She has buckets full of energy, which saw her with us from approx 8:30 am to 11 pm! She was a fabulous addition to our family and friends and stepped in to help with button holes, dress arranging and re-glueing eyelashes on!! Most importantly she didn’t intrude on the day and at times kept to the side lines whilst quietly taking her shots and capturing some wonderfully natural moments, which we were oblivious to at the time. These were some of the best pictures of the day as they caught ‘the moment’ and this clearly showcases what she does best - natural, fun, happy, emotional, unique photographs of a special day. She so deserves to be recognised in her profession. Amazing!!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Each wedding is memorable to me but I recently shot one at a little chateau in the south of France which was a dream! I love destination weddings!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, Relaxed, Fun, Friendly, Story telling

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that I get to preserve peoples memories is something that I feel very proud of.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Bridebook is amazing for inspiration! Pinterest is also your friend! Lots of fabulous ideas to be found. Social media in general is a fabulous tool so utilise it! Instagram and Facebook have some amazing pages to follow!!! When it comes to weddings everyone has a different budget and different priorities. I just want to emphasize just how important your wedding photographs are! Please don't skimp on a photographer....we are worth every penny in the long run!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Oh....so many weddings to choose from it's hard to narrow down! There was one wedding where the brides mother had passed away and the car her dad hired for her was named after her mother. That was a lovely touch.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I'm very relaxed and laid back. I like my couples to feel at ease and feel like they have nothing to worry about. I'll be on hand to help with anything needed during the day. From bridal prep (I've been known to sew on a few dress buttons when needed!) calming the bride down in the morning, helping her into her dress if needed and looking after little ones when everyone else is busy, through to the evening any little thing to help and I'm there. When it comes to the photos I much prefer to capture natural moments that tell the story of the day. I won't make a couple stand for hours posing for images. They are there to enjoy the day and want to be able to mingle with their guests and soak in every possible moment! When it comes to the evening party I'm straight on that dance floor getting in amongst everyone to get the most incredible shots of people letting loose!

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Each and every couple is different so I don't think there is one photo that fits all! I'll find what suits the couple on the day.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I really couldn't say! I don't think one photo stands out to be honest as each wedding is different and unique in it's own way.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace the rain! You'll only wear your dress once so why not make the most of it and create some stunning memories!

Describe how you got into photography.

I grew up with cameras. My dad, uncle and grandad all worked in TV & Film. It was more of a hobby than anything else for a very long time. Then when my cousin was 18 she died suddenly from meningitis. It was devastating. I didn't have many pictures of her but I had a couple that I'd taken of her with my eldest boy who was only a baby at the time. They were only taken on an old nokia phone, really bad quality but they are still some of my favourite images as I'll never get the chance to take any more. That's when I decided that I wanted to preserve memories and what better way than capturing the most important moments of peoples lives!
