For the couples who are unconditionally, authentically, and truly in love with each other, it is so important to document every step of your relationship no matter where you are in the world! Even though I am a wedding photographer, I love exploring the world with couples just like yourself :)
Hey! My name is Samantha Kleven, and I am so excited that you came to my little side of the internet!
I have a passion for traveling, drinking Starbucks, and of course all things romance. For the longest time I have been obsessed with photography, and I am beyond blessed to document so many love stories across the country! So why weddings over anything else?
The moment I shot my first couple back in 2016, I knew that I would never stop. I felt this rush in my heart, I was smiling the entire time, and I felt beyond blessed to save such a special relationship. So, becoming a luxury wedding photographer has been one of my biggest dreams for years, and I would not be where I am today without my faith in the Lord.

"I cannot say enough about how perfectly sam captured our day. we were so lucky to have her there!! She not only was an absolute joy and positive light of energy and made the day even better, but she also captured the most beautiful moments - they’re just absolutely incredible. If you’re thinking about booking sam, do it right now before she’s snapped up - you won’t regret it!!

BEST. EXPERIENCE. EVER!!!!!!! She is so personable and professional! I did a couples shoot with her at an Airbnb and it was so much fun! I had only met her a few months ago but it felt like I had known her my whole life! She did an amazing job during the shoot making us both feel comfortable and not staged what so ever. And don’t even get me STARTED on how the pictures turned out in the end!

If you are looking for a photographer to take some weight of your shoulders. YOU NEED THIS GIRL! My wedding (elopement) day wouldn't have been the same without her! Sam, captures the most pure, crisp, elegant photos! There is NOT a single photo I was disappointed with! She made me feel like I was the only bride in the entire world, and included everyone in my group! I HIGHLY recommend Sam!!!!

Sam is the kindest, sweetest person you will ever work with!! My husband and I have shot with her twice & are insanely happy with how our pictures turn out. She will become your best friend by the end of your session & you will be contacting her right away for another photoshoot once you see your pictures! :) Her charismatic energy is contagious & one of the happiest photographers.
