Testimonial from Caitlin T.    "Samantha photographed my fiancé and me for what we initially wanted to be just Save the Date photos. A simple photo shoot turned into some of the most fantastic photos I have ever seen! Samantha is insanely talented - our photos turned out phenomenal!! Samantha was so easy to work with, so friendly and warm & professional. Pricing is absolutely reasonable for the quality of work and time that Samantha puts into each step in the process: from consult to session to finishing. I am so very happy to have worked with Samantha, and cannot recommend her more highly!"

  Testimonial from Jesse H.    Samantha photographed a small, intimate event for our family. Everyone was SO impressed with her professionalism and personality. On top of taking beautiful photographs, she was warm, friendly, and made everyone feel so comfortable. She also worked diligently afterwards to make sure the quality of our orders were perfect and exactly what we wanted. Highly recommended!!

  Testimonial from Michael T.   I cannot say enough good things about the quality of Samantha's work! In an increasingly digital age, your photo pops up next to just about everything you do or say online, and a great headshot helps you put your best face forward to the world, pun intended. I am not a person who generally enjoys having his photograph taken, and Samantha immediately put me at ease, asked me a few simple questions, and we got to work. The photo session felt like a conversation between old friends. There was no freezing and posing, and Samantha has a knack for coaxing a genuine smile and snapping the shutter at the exact right moment. The finished product was even better! I was presented with 4 fantastic finished products to choose from, and when I looked at the pictures I felt like I was looking at myself as I want to be seen, not the usual conglomeration of flaws I tend to pick out in snapshots or selfies on Facebook. I can confidently post these pictures on business and social media knowing that indeed, I am putting a thoughtful and professional representation of myself out into the world. I would highly recommend Samantha Schannon to any professional or personal contacts who want to make sure they "look the part."

  Testimonial From Nick T.     "Samantha was wonderful - the perfect photographer for our multi-generation event. Personable, prompt, reliable and clear - the planning and organizing with her was easy. At the event itself she interacted well with kids and adults alike, getting the very best of us without being obtrusive or an imposition. I would highly recommend her to anyone."

  Testimonial From Summer S.                                                 Samantha is such a pleasure to work with! We hired her for the first time for a 150 person Healthcare Symposium up at Mohegan Sun and have already booked her for another event this fall at the Omni Hotel. Not only is she wonderful to our clients while shooting, but her final product is outstanding. She delivered our photographs in a timely manner, which was very important for our event recap. As an event planner in the CT region, it is exciting to know Samantha as a preferred vendor. She is highly personable and we look forward to having her back soon!

  Testimonial from Carol E.    "From our first conversations, Samantha put me both at ease and created excitement. I explained to her how nervous and camera shy I was, especially since I was not happy with my previous experience. From there, she listened thoughtfully and generously to me as I explained what I wanted to create, since the pictures were intended for marketing for my new business. I received a collage she created to illustrate to me what she "heard" me say what I wanted, for us to gauge how we would proceed. I was blown away by this "extra" very generous step and knew she "heard" me. After a very, very thorough exchange of communications, our day came to work together and what she created was nothing short of magical! We danced together. We sang together. And she put me at total ease! She even chose the "best time of day" for us to take pictures. But our day was firmly rooted in solid trust and confidence, from all the care and thoughtfulness she extended before we ever even met in person (she came HIGHLY recommended to me from someone I was working with). I had a distinct sense of what I wanted, and Samantha blew the lid off. There was not one detail that we did not discuss, from clothing, to makeup, to the weather, to the time of day, to props. You name it, we covered it! I HIGHLY recommend Samantha for her artistic talent and her generous, attentive, kind nature. Indeed, I can't imagine how anyone could compare to the experience I had with Samantha. She inspired solid confidence, created pure fun AND took for me the best pictures I have of me! I eagerly look forward to my next session with Samantha!"

  Testimonial from Actress and Stunt Woman Valisa Tate    "Samantha's creative vision is amazing. She knew how to capture my angles with her innovative use of lighting. (She set up a makeshift studio in my hotel room while I was on a film location). Her patience and persistent attempt to get "the shot" made for an enjoyable photo session. ~Valisa Tate
