WHEN I’m NOT PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS and portraits, YOU will FIND me

spending time

with family

We love to play video games together. KK is most often in  my lap watching "tunes" while we are engaged in our favorite playstation game.

Eating all the

sushi

i love sushi sooo much that when my son was 4 he was asked to fill out some facts about mom for mother's day. One of the questions asked, "what is your mom's favorite food?" he said, "Sushi, she can't stop eating it and It is so gross." while it is true that i am mostly a sushi lover, i have love for food in general. So combing food and travel is a big win for me!

Visiting the 

mountains

THE PIGEON FORGE/GATLINBURG AREA IN TENNESSEE IS OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME! i love driving through the mountains and breathing that mountain air. Because of visiting here so much,  i have become obsessed with bears. They are the cutest, fluffiest and most ferocious creatures out there. mama bear for the win!

LET's CONNECT

I’ve found that I am not the perfect fit for every couple. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. I want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how y’all got engaged.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with me and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

Wedding Advice

We're here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. I am happy to share anything I have learned from photographing weddings! 

Engagement Session

I am big fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 
Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. I’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. I normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules. 

Wedding Day Prep

I check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day. 

While I normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions during the planning process! I am more than happy to help!

The Big Day

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. 

Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

Photo Delivery

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about eight weeks of your wedding. At that time, I'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

I hope the relationship doesn't end after we deliver your photographs. I want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, I'd love to document your growing family.

Engagement Sessions

All of our sessions include a complimentary engagement session. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how we pose. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why we’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.

Sessions also allow you to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, we’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.

ALBUMS

One of the best ways to make your wedding memories last is by ordering an album. These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on coffee tables.

All albums must be prepaid before design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include three rounds of revision. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day.

MORE DETAILS

We love your work and we’re ready to book! What’s the next step?

Fantastic! To reserve your wedding date, we’ll need a completed contract and a $350 non-refundable retainer. If you don’t have a contract yet, just let us know and we’ll send one over! The remaining balance will be due 1 month before the wedding.

How many photos are typically included and can we print the photos ourselves?

Galleries typically include anywhere between 400 and 800 photos. The exact amount varies from wedding to wedding. Your online gallery will come loaded with fully edited high resolution images you can print anywhere. You’re also welcome to share your wedding photos on Facebook. Don't forget to credit your favorite photographer by linking your post to @srambophoto on social media or website: samantharambo.com.

When do you charge travel fees?

I typically add travel fees on to any wedding outside of a 60 mile radius from my  home in Leary, Georgia. Fees vary depending on location so ask me for more details.

Thank you so much for considering me to be a part of your wedding day! If you’re interested in working with me, the next step is to send over a proposal and set up a time to chat! You can reach me directly at sam@samantharambo.com.

I CAN'T WAIT TO WORK TOGETHER!
