Oy, here we go. This is the part where I have to describe myself, something I absolutely hate!! Let's start off with the basics. My name is Samantha, and I am the face behind Samantha Jean Photography.
Even before it was a business, photography had always been something I gravitated towards. All throughout high school and college, I was that friend who forced everyone to take a group photo. I was the one documenting (and a lot of times annoying!) everyone and everything around me. I was the one saying "just one more I promise!" Thankfully with a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck, I was able to turn that tendency into a thriving business.
In my spare time when you don't find me hiding behind a camera, I do have a few other hobbies that keep me busy. Twice a week I strap on my skates and hit the track with the Black Rose Rollers, Hanover PA's one and only roller derby league! I go by the alter ego Green Eggs & Sam, or as my teammates affectionately refer to me as, “Eggs.” (Because Sam was just too easy, of course!)
Other than photography and roller derby, i'm a pretty simple gal. I love to travel wherever and whenever I can with my husband, Robbie. We're always adding new places to our travel bucket list! When we're not traveling (or daydreaming about traveling) we love to play board games and chill with our border collie Apollo, and our kitties, Savannah and Naomi.
You prefer "friendors"
You're a nerd like me, and love a good pop culture reference!
You want to have FUN on your wedding day!
You want a photographer who is detail oriented.
I first met her when being a bridesmaid in one of my friends weddings and loved her demeanor! She went on to photograph our engagement and wedding photos. She did AMAZING! We had our full wedding album back to us within 2 weeks, WOOH! Her work is stunning and she has such a lovely personality that makes the shoots so fun! Highly recommend.
a dream to work with."
Samantha is so kind and sweet, and easy to get along with, and professional! She was helpful with everything throughout the night. She had an eye for great angles, great lighting and great opportunities. She was quick to get the photos back to us--and they're all GORGEOUS. Having someone dependable like her just made the day easy and smooth. She made an effort to get a picture of every guest who wanted one, and made sure we got every picture we wanted. She is great with email, responds quickly and clearly, and helps with any question you might have. my husband said throughout the night, "I'm so glad we picked her." THAT'S how professional and kind she is!
to anyone who would listen to me."
"I would recommend Samantha
From scheduling our engagement session to her tireless efforts on our wedding day, we were so grateful that we chose her as our photographer. Samantha is so down to earth, sweet, and organized. Oh, and she's just cool and the ultimate boss lady! We loved getting to know her and feel that she really tapped into who we are as a couple, which definitely shows in her work. She worked with us every step of the way to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted out of our pictures. She even toughed it out in the chilly December air to make sure we got some amazing wedding photos outside.
