Rick is awesome to work with! He is VERY talented and professional, which is important when you're not used to being in front of the camera. I appreciated his willingness to help us pose and help us feel more comfortable. We did our engagement session yesterday and we already have the edited photos, which look amazing!! I cannot wait to post them.

I couldn’t have asked for a better to photographer to capture all the memories ion my wedding day. Rick was not only professional but excited and eager and never missed a moment. He listened, he cared and he was open to any suggestions I had to offer. Rick provided direction in a kind, calm manner which helped tremendously on my big day and put my mind at ease.
If you are looking for a hard working, artistically talented photographer who will keep your wedding memories alive for a lifetime, then look no further, Rick comes highly recommended. I’m so in love with all the pictures, I will cherish them forever.

Wow, there is so much we could say about choosing Rick and his wife Liz to capture our day. Filled with so much passion for what they do, they kept the focus on us and from beginning to end I had no doubt they were capturing moments we would look back on forever.
When choosing a photographer we were hesitant because we weren’t sure if there was a perfect fit for us. My husband is shy in front of a camera and having shot weddings myself, I wanted to make sure whoever we chose was flexible and fun. Extremely happy to say Rick and Liz were our perfect match. Incredibly warm to our friends and family, everything was smooth beginning to end. Our photos are beyond what I ever imagined, crisp and creative but showcased who we TRULY are. Incredibly fast turn around and I love how we are able to choose our favorite raw files to be edited, keeps the process very personal! Rick even surprised us with smoke bombs for our Bride/Groom shots! Never thought we would get to do that and so glad we did. Thank you thank you thank you Samos Photography!

Words truly cannot describe how THANKFUL we are for Rick and his expertise! HIGHLY recommend!!!!!!

Rick and Liz Najjar are absolute professionals and talented artists. Hiring Samos Photography and Videography was the best choice we made for our wedding. They wanted excellent pictures and video just as much as we did for our day, which is a real rarity. We knew when we booked Rick for our wedding that he could easily charge 3-4 times as much based on the quality of his photos. We also immediately took to his enthusiastic and friendly personality. Communication was always quick and clear. Later on in the process, Rick contacted us asking if we needed a videographer, since his wife, Liz, was available. Little did he know, our videographer had suddenly cancelled on us. We watched one of Liz’s videos and cried because it was so thoughtfully crafted. We were so happy we got the chance to hire her as well! The day of the wedding, they arrived promptly and got straight to work. At this point, Liz was very close to her due date. We couldn’t believe the amount of energy and drive she kept up the whole day! The guests and wedding party loved them. They guided us through different poses, making sure we looked natural and beautiful. They also made us feel like a million bucks, always saying how amazing everything was looking. When I said goodbye to Rick after the wedding around 10 pm, he said he was going to go home and start editing. I mean, WOW. He sent us the edits the next day. Liz sent the video a couple days later. I’ve never heard of that quick a turn around for either photography or videography edits. Many friends and acquaintances said they were the best wedding photos they had ever seen. We agree! We will cherish these for the rest of our lives! And we hope we get to stay in touch with Rick and Liz because they are truly wonderful people! What a power couple!

Working with Rick was truly an awesome experience! He shows up already brainstorming how to get the most beautiful shots and helps guide you to them. We had so much fun working with him! Now, the pictures...absolutely perfect!!! We couldn’t have asked for more, he captured us and the people we love in a magical way and we are so thankful.

Rick was so easy to work with!

Rick was awesome to work with and we loved his vision and style for our wedding photos! His background in model photography definitely shows in his work. We both love the way we look in our photos. His unique eye for place and perspective made for some fantastic shots. He made quick work of our family photos and was always ready to roll with the punches. Amazing energy! What's his secret? Also collaborated well with our videographers (Nathan from Prodigy Cinema). Make sure you plan enough time to get all the shots. We added some extra time to our schedule so he could get more, super easy process as Rick is a breeze to get ahold of. I understand his schedule is booking up fast so don't wait around...

Have you ever looked at a Photograph and immediately felt something? Then Samos photography is for you! Rick captured how I feel about my husband in a photograph. I wanted photos that showed the undeniable love we have and I was blown away by how many touch my soul! He made us feel natural and comfortable. I can’t say enough how much I love my photos and it’s an unbelievable deal to receive ALL the photos that we’re taken. I got them back WITH EDITS included in LESS than 48 hours after my wedding which is unreal. You won’t find photos this amazing at such a good price anywhere else. It’s not just photography, these are my forever memories. When I look back I’m so lucky that because of Samos photography I will be able to reme

5/5 stars! I cannot imagine our wedding without Rick. He was an awesome person to work with and is a truly talented photographer. What sets a photographer apart is being able to capture the true emotion and moments of the events, not just being able to take standard group photos which almost anyone can do. This is where Rick really excels. In addition, you can really feel his passion for photography and wanting everything to be perfect for your photos.
He is extremely responsive at any time of day for any questions you have which is a huge plus. He is also very flexible and can meet any request. We had the pleasure of working with Rick for our 3 day wedding and there is not a moment he was not able to capture. He was also able to capture everything without me noticing him even being in the front lines of all the action. If you are getting married, he has a talent of capturing candids and getting you away fr om the crowd for a few minutes for awesome photo sessions. He can find an amazing background no matter wh ere you are. One of the other amazing things about Rick is that we got all the images including professionally edited photos 24 hours after the events ended!!! We got every single raw image and tons of professionally edited photos! He will also edit any raw photo at our request. INCREDIBLE! And the photos are amazing. I am blown away by how great everything turned out. I know if I ever need a photographer again for any occasion Samos Photography is my go to. I highly recommend you give Rick a call if you are looking for a photographer. Thanks so much for everything you did and for making our photos so memorable!!
