"We were blessed to have Sam & Eric shoot our daughter's wedding. We are beyond happy with the bridals and the wedding day photos. Absolutely gorgeous. No funky filters needed, they know how to use their cameras. Plus they are a super fun couple who will put you at ease and have fun along with you and your guests.
