I had the pleasure of using Sam for our photographer for our wedding. I couldn't have been happier! From the beginning planning to the finished product, I've seen nothing but professionalism, passion, and creativity. I am very pleased with the finished product.

Sam was amazing. From our first communication, it was obvious she was a professional. Very clear in communicating and sharing expectations. Timely responses to all of our questions. Detailed in her contract. Most importantly, our photos are AMAZING. The posed photos and the candids are all keepsake quality, Would highly recommend Sam for anyone who wants professional and gorgeous photos.

Sam is wonderful to work with. Her communication is wonderful during prep, photo shoot, and editing/final stage. Sam works wonderfully with my sassy almost 2 year old. She uses fun voices and doesn’t mind play breaks to keep him interested. We have loved having Sam do photos for our family and will definitely use her again.

I highly recommend Sam! Our daughter got sick about 20 minutes before the session and she was pretty difficult during the session and you would never know! We received our photos in a really timely manner and they look amazing! Her pricing is extremely fair and the photos are worth every penny! Book with Sam!


Sam Callahan
Photographer Sam Callahan About me

I’m an artist based in the greater Chicagoland area specializing in photography and art direction, with nine years of professional photography experience under my belt. I’m also what you would call a “fiery redhead,” mixing innate restlessness with my uncontrollable desire to create. I spend most of my days at a shoot — whether it’s creative portraits, wedding/engagements, or family events — but in my free time you can find me editing photos with my golden retriever and black cat (you might even see some photos of them).
