I am a Cape Town based wedding photographer with an eye for detail, a flair for fashion and love for gorgeous, natural wedding photos.
When I was a little girl I wished I had a super power that would allow me to freeze time. I imagined walking around, while everything else is motionless, and taking in the beauty around me. Now that I am all grown up I get to do this for a living. I capture beautiful moments, freezing them in time, so that the people can recall the joy in that moment whenever they look at their photographs.
I’ve always loved photography and before I became a fulltime photographer, I worked as fashion designer where I was inspired by gorgeous images in fashion editorials. I’m easy-going, friendly and focused on creative details that make a photograph timelessly beautiful.
I describe my photographic style as ‘Classic Contemporary Storytelling’ which is a unique blend of photojournalism, fashion editorial and fine art photography. I capture the moments, emotions and details of a couples’ wedding day in a way that tells the story of their unique romance. I aim to capture images that are natural and modern while remaining timeless.
I don’t like stiff poses and fake smiles, I prefer to capture the natural, real and heartfelt moments in an unobtrusive, photo-journalistic style of photography. It’s all about celebrating your love story.
I look forward to hearing from you.

“Sam is quite simply AMAZING!!! Couldn’t have dreamed of a better photographer to capture my wedding day.” - Shelley Smith
“Sam is not only an amazing photographer, she has such a beautiful soul. Always smiling and sees the beauty in everything. I loved working with her and will always recommend her.” - Zaib Arends
“First, I gotta thank my awesome friend Lisa Lawrence for introducing me to the awesomeness of Sam! It’s no secret that I’m totally in love with Sam and think she is the most uber amazingly talented human being around and it’s all basically because she’s just overall such an amazing person from the inside out and her rocking joyous personality is reflected in her ‘work’. I have never loved photo’s of myself or felt comfortable on the other side of the camera but with Sam you don’t even realise it and each and every person she photographs looks like a model afterwards! And if you think I’m a bad subject my other half is the worst ever and if Robert can relax in front of the lens and be thoroughly happy afterwards and love the results, then Sam is nothing short of a miracle worker and it’s no wonder Robert loves her too now. Keep creating and sharing that God-given talent of yours!!” -Bella Visser
“Such talent! I have had the pleasure of working with Samantha on numerous occasions and just cannot say enough times how truly talented she is, but it go’s beyond that,what an amazing person, I highly recommend her to anyone needing tasteful, artistic photography work done, looking forward to many more years of working with her xxx” – Kathleen Barry
“Samantha is my favourite photographer. Not only does she make you feel totally relaxed and knows just how to bring out the best in you – but she also has a very creative eye due to her many years in the fashion industry. Her photo’s our always well balanced and she uses the backgrounds with perfect proportions – so not only do you really look good, but they end up looking like magazine shoots. She has managed to capture very special moments for me with my daughter and she is my obvious choice for my upcoming wedding. As a women, we all have our insecurities, and Samantha manages to highlight your good points and lift your self esteem. Thank you Samantha for capturing beautiful memories for us.” - Cordula List
“I am still as much in awe of this woman’s work as I was a couple of years ago, when I saw her impeccable work online. Since then I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with her on numerous occasions. She is as much a sunshine as her page ‘Sunkissedstudio’ implies.
Definitelly top for wedding and beauty photography. I highly recommend her xXx” – Bia Ekstein
