What you can you expect on a shoot with Sam Sullivan Photography? Our photos are never “posed.” We will of course direct you to interact with one another. You'll laugh- a ton. Maybe even cry.... but you won’t get those awkward, stiff pictures full of blank stares, staged angles and lifeless gestures that fall flat. We focus on documenting genuine, real life, in-between moments: You know, the ones that actually capture who you are, why you are here, what you want to say, and how you want to feel in ten years when you look back on your day. We will capture your emotions, moods and intentions the moment the shutter button is hit. You’ll see your photos and totally be transported back to that moment and fall in love again. This is our purpose for you. (do not fret though, we will still get in those posed shots for your mom and Grandma, cheesy, but still traditionally necessary) We have to warn you though, your photographer will most likely yell out, “yasssss!” mid shoot and tell you that she’s “literally dying” every time a shot looks amazing. Your photographers will be your cheerleaders because that’s really just who we are, and we kinda can’t help it. If that isn’t for you, and it very well may not be, there is nothing wrong with keeping it moving! Tell us who you are, why you are, and what you want to say, and then we’ll go on an adventure together. We’re inspired by couples that are risk takers and live outside the box and outside the traditions our prior generations left for us. We encourage our couples to decide what makes them happy, and let that direct our time together. Be honest - with yourself, your photographer and with the camera lens.
