Hi! I'm Sam June.

I like to find beauty in the balance between the shadows and the light. They are rarely inseparable.
They are complex and totally opposite and yet they can not live without the other. Real connection.

Over the years of creating authentic portraits I have made some deep realizations
about connection that have carried my work to where it is today.

I believe in love.  I also have the best job EVER.
I am constantly blown away by the strangers I meet, by the love you share, by the bravery of your story.
I am a mother and a wife, a nature lover and a taco connoisseur.

My couples are adventurous. They don't mind stepping outside the box because they trust me.
They love the wind in their hair and to kick off their shoes and get a little dirty.
My couples have beautiful spirits and amazing love stories.
My grooms are involved and my brides are like good friends.
If this sounds like you then we are already off to a good start!

From the barns and farms to the vineyards and orchards, the vintage and elegant to the boho and sophisticated,
my favorite weddings happen in the Hudson Valley, the Catskills and Roxbury, and all the way to Brooklyn.
I am still dying to shoot weddings in Costa Rica, Yosemite, The Redwoods and Joshua Tree.
So bring on the tattoos and skateboards, the flower crowns and flip flops, the high heels and tuxedos.
Your wedding is going to be amazing. There won't ever be another one like it.
Your journey has already started and I'd love to come along for the ride...

What is real is beautiful.
Only love is real.

About You

You are...

the kind of couple that your friends use as the example of real love. You love to cuddle and don’t mind a public smooch. You love nature and prefer to be outdoors. You’re not afraid of a little rain and have been known to kick off your shoes and dance in it. You prefer experiences over things. Your personality can light up a room but you don't have to be the center of attention. The word adventure excites you! You have a traditional side to you and also a free spirit. You believe in love. You believe in family. You are ready to start this amazing journey with your life’s partner and I am so stoked that you have found your way here.

Welcome.
