About

Hi! Thank you for stopping by my website and checking out my work. My name is Sami.
I have lived in the suburbs of Chicago my entire life. I absolutely love this area. The diversity of this city is amazing, I love that I can photograph an urban engagement session and then a family session in the woods, all within 30 miles of each other. Even though i’ve been in Chicago my whole life, I LOVE to travel. So far i’ve been to London, Kenya, Italy and Greece. Next up is Barcelona and hopefully Australia/New Zealand. Travel and photography are the perfect pair.
I have about eight years experience in photography and the last three years I have spent photographing weddings and families. My background is focused in photojournalism. I love the excitement and the rush of a wedding day. Documenting everything from the details of  the wedding dress, to the first time dad looks at his baby girl, or when the groom looks at his stunning bride walking towards him, and then that guest showing off their dance skills at the reception, those are the moments that I look forward to capturing. I want to document your wedding day as it happens, so when you’re looking at your wedding album on your 10 year anniversary, your entire day is brought back to life through the pictures you have.
I love to talk so if you have any questions please let me know! Send me an email or give me a call, I can’t wait to hear from you!
