MEET samantha

I’m a country girl, who grew up on a farm and married the farmer down the road. :) My husband, John, and I have 2 sweet, ornery, rotten kiddos - Ava and Sawyer. Ava is my little clone, although she acts more like her Dad, and sweet Sawyer went to be with Jesus on October 9, 2015, just one day after his third birthday. We laid Sawyer to rest on the family farm and planted an apple orchard around him, Sawyer's Little Orchard. We miss him terribly, and not a day goes by that we don't wish him back. Love never dies, we will never move on, we will never get over it, but we will continue to move forward one day at a time. We will continue to grow Sawyer's Little Orchard in hopes that one day it will be a community gathering place where families can come spend the day picking apples and drinking cider.

You're ENGAGED and I'm so glad you're here! I love the joy and excitement of all things wedding. I love to hear my brides talk about wedding details, from the florals to the colors, I love it all. Being a wedding photographer is truly rewarding and the friendships I have made last far beyond the wedding day. If you're looking for an exciting photography experience, you've stopped in the right place. Are you ready to become part of the Walker Bride Tribe?

Samantha is amazing!! She thinks of every single detail, especially the ones you'll forget. She even sent us a package the week before our wedding with a super cute bag with our initials, a hand written note telling us to use the bag for the wedding day with all of our goodies to be photographed as soon as she gets there (rings, garter, invites, etc.) and a gift card to the movies to relax and enjoy before the wedding! We got our pictures back within a WEEK! And she had a sneak peek up THE DAY AFTER THE WEDDING!!! I couldn't give a better recommendation to someone more deserving! She is professional, sweet and encouraging. She takes the photos you want, not just the standard wedding photo. She is a MUST HAVE!!

Samantha Walker takes such beautiful pictures and goes the extra mile to make sure of it (even standing in the middle of a field) to get that perfect picture. We are in love with the moments she captured during our wedding. Highly recommended!!

Samantha is just amazing! She has the best ideas for poses and makes you feel comfortable, especially if you don't like being in front of the camera. She will make sure you get the pictures you want with the best quality! She definitely cares about you not only as a client, but as a person. She is the best you could ask for!

Samantha was absolutely amazing.

We got into a situation where our original photographer backed out of her contract & Samantha stepped in and saved the day. She traveled all the way up to Cleveland, Ohio to shoot for our engagement photos. They turned out perfect. And when it came to our wedding day, we couldn't be happier with the way our photos turned out.

I would absolutely recommend her for your wedding! So easy to work with & gorgeous photos to boot!

Samantha was absolutely incredible. From working with our crazy schedules to book an engagement shoot, to capturing all of the perfect moments on our special day, I could not have been more pleased with her work. She has a true gift and every last picture shows it. I've had photographs taken where I had to wait weeks upon weeks to get our photos back, Sam was so quick and had them back in just a two weeks. I could not be more happy that we chose Samantha for our day and would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing photographer that makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and produces great work!

true gift"
