WE CAN'T WAIT TO WORK WITH YOU!
Tim and I were lucky enough to have Samantha Brown as both our engagement and wedding photographer and we are beyond happy with that choice! Starting with the first introduction call, all the way through the wedding, Samantha was fantastic. She is an incredible communicator and Tim and I were instantly endeared to her warm, bubbly personality. As for the photos, I think they speak for themselves. Samantha captured our day so beautifully, down to even the smallest detail. She is truly a master of her craft.
I’m so happy I found Samantha! We instantly hit it off and she recently did my branding shoot, I’m in love!! I told her the vibe I was wanting and she absolutely nailed it! The pictures came out amazing! I would definitely recommend Samantha!
Samantha was so great to work with! Usually men don’t like taking pics, but she was husband approved as well. Lol! She knew great spots, was very flexible with our timing and very understanding of how slow I was to review photos due to some family issues. She is affordable as well. Can’t wait to use her again next time we are back in town!
We had the best experience with Samantha Brown Artistry during our surprise engagement shoot! She made everything so easy and fun!
I have been traveling to Siesta Key for years, but never had professional pictures done. We have been trying to have a baby for two year so when we finally got our positive pregnancy test I decided to splurge on a photoshoot!!
Honestly finding a good photographer can be hard and you never really know what you’re gonna get till you book and see how the pictures turned out. I am so so happy to have found and booked Samantha. I can’t say enough good things about her, both as a person and an artist.
I was so nervous about making my proposal perfect, and Samantha stepped in in exactly all the right places to make me feel confident and allow her to capture the moment so beautifully. Her communication was excellent before, during, and after the shoot. From the very start, she was on top of getting back to me right away, and helped me nail down the location and timing with her expertise and familiarity of the area. During, we were impressed with how well she directed us to help get all kinds of shots!
We hired Samantha to do beach photos while we were visiting from out of town. We could not be more pleased with our whole experience and the amazing photos. She was very organized and had excellent communication with us the entire time. Her photo location was awesome and I love how she knew how to pose the people in our party for a natural but professional look. She also did a great job working with the natural light. On top of it all, she is just the sweetest person too.
Samantha and her husband were a pleasure to work with for our beach wedding!! My husband and I are very awkward when it comes to picture taking and she did a great job keeping us smiling and making us feel comfortable! The pictures came out amazing, she captured our day perfectly! She also did a great job managing the timeline and all the craziness and the turnaround for receiving our photos was way quicker than expected. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to have great photos taken!
A pleasure to work with ❤️ made me feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera. Great patience with my little one as well. Love how the pictures turned out!

Samantha did a family photo shoot for our family while we were vacationing in Siesta Key. We were so pleased with her and the photos she took. She was easy to work with, reasonably priced and is an excellent photographer. She had a lot of patience with our three generations and getting great shots. I can highly recommend using Samantha Brown Artistry!
Samantha is incredible! She is patient and detailed when snapping her photos- makes sure the way she is posing you looks perfect for the camera. Made us feel so comfortable during our shoot and the photos are fabulous. Highly recommend!

Sam was extremely communicative from my first inquiry and even provided a style guide to help us choose our wardrobe, which I always appreciate! She was patient with my 2 and 5 year olds, who definitely did not make her job super easy, and our photos turned out so well! The turnaround time for editing was so quick and everyone has been complimenting the photos since I’ve shared them. I am so eager to get them printed for the walls of our home. Sam’s style is exactly what you’d want for a beach photo session
Thank you for being one of the best decisions we made while planning our beach wedding! From working your magic on my hair & make up and making me feel beautiful to capturing our day perfectly! You are so talented and we are so grateful we found you all the way from Indiana. You were a blast to work with and made us all feel comfortable. I would recommend you to all my friends and family. Thanks for the laughs and for being a special part of our wedding day.
Lindsey & Scott
SAMANTHA IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! From the second I booked with her to the end of our wedding she was always available for any questions I had, she was so detail oriented, and just a delight to work with. Our wedding day was absolutely fantastic and I could not have asked for a more talented photographer. She had a fast turnaround for our pictures, and they turned out absolutely beautiful. You will not be disappointed if you book with her!
I don’t even know where to begin! Sam is the absolute BEST! Not only did she photograph our beach wedding, she also started out our wedding day helping out with doing the ladies hair! Not only have I gained a photographer that we will use again when visiting Florida, I’ve also gained a super sweet friend! She will NOT disappoint!
We hired Samantha for family beach photos while on vacation in Anna Maria. She was easy to work with, friendly, organized, and oh so talented behind the lens. She is truly amazing!!! Her and her husband were so fun to work with, great with our small children, and wonderful from start to finish. Her use of natural light is nothing short of magical - if you’re looking for a natural light photographer, please hire her!!! You will not be disappointed!
Samantha did a wonderful job with our photos. We originally found her online being from out of state to do our engagement photos that turned out excellent. And then, we decided to have our wedding in her area and she photographed our wedding recently. Those photographs were amazing and her attention to detail is top notch! She does very well planning, ironing out details beforehand and executing the timeline. Definitely, recommend Samantha!
Michael & Olivia Armstrong
Samantha stepped in 3 days before my wedding when my originally booked photographer had to last minute cancel. She not only saved the day for us, but our photos turned out beautiful and she did a great job coordinating everyone for our pictures. I'm so happy she ended up being the one to photograph our wedding. Highly recommend!
Chip & Alexa
We are thrilled with the photos Samantha took, both of our entire group as well as those of couples and family units. Her candids were fantastic also. Samantha was able to organize, and patiently direct our huge group (28 people) with grace and finesse. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or outcome.
Thank you for capturing our joy-filled reunion!
Samantha did an incredible job with our photos this year! We found her online and so happy we went with her. She was very friendly, easy to work with. We had our 6 month old and she got so many good photos of him! Hopefully we go back to area next year and get use her again.
Samantha was easy to work with, kept the timeline moving at a good pace. We got all of the shots we wanted and then some.
Samantha and Peter were amazing on our wedding day. They did everything they could to get all the shots we wanted plus more! I LOVE our photos! We had huge family photos and they were captured beautifully!
I cannot put into words how happy I am with ALL of the photos from our wedding. I felt like I was reliving the day when I went through them. You captured the entirety of it so perfectly and I am so grateful. They are stunning!! Thank you for the quick turnaround time too. I feel like I can’t say thank you enough.
It was amazing to work with you and I will certainly be reaching out in the future the next time we need professional photos done. You guys are the BEST.
Samantha did a great job for our family vacation photo shoot!! She came highly recommended by a photographer on Bradenton Beach who was fully booked the week we were coming, and she did not disappoint! She was prompt, organized, worked quick which was important because we had five children ages seven and under, she captured the photos we wanted and then some, and we loved the finished product. I would highly recommend Samantha Brown Artistry LLC!
Terri Deal Landwerlen
Samantha photographed maternity photos for our family last year while we vacationed in AMI. She did such a fantastic job we decided to have photos taken with the extended family this year! They are so well done and Samantha does such a great job capturing every detail. We highly recommend!
Samantha was amazing to work with. She is very detailed and a great communicator. Not having the first clue about what to expect, she made us feel at ease. When things were really getting started they were pretty chaotic and she helped keep things moving along. Her assistant (hubby) is also awesome! We had the pleasure of working with both of them on our wedding day. My husband kept saying, "she's awesome! Great pick babe." The photos turned out beautiful!
Elizabeth & Charlie
Samantha was easy to work with and our pictures were beautiful! They were also sent to us in a timely manner! Highly recommend!
I have used Sam for two maternity photo shoots, wedding announcement photos and my wedding photos. 10/10 would recommend. She’s amazing!!
Samantha was amazing throughout the process and my daughter was so happy with her!! The photos were gorgeous and she knew exactly where to go and when. I highly recommend her and plan to use her again in the future for some family photos.
Samantha is so wonderful! She is very professional, kind, easy to talk to, energetic, organized, and respectful! She knew what she was doing and she did such an amazing job with all the three services she provided at once
( hair, makeup, and pictures). Samantha is very responsive and always ready to work with your needs. I am very pleased with the experience and service provided. I am looking forward to working with her again next month for another session. I highly recommend Samantha!
Samantha was absolutely amazing to work with! She made my dream destination wedding come true! I love how she helped me create a timeline and was always open to communicate. I loved having her on our special day. Our wedding gallery was beautiful!
Having Samantha as my photographer and makeup artist was one of the best decisions I made on my wedding day, from the first moment I talked to her she made me feel confident, she is kind and very patient, I had never had a photo shoot before but she made me feel very comfortable, my wedding photos turned out spectacular, I would recommend Samantha as a makeup artist and photographer 100%!
Yarlin & Manuel
Samantha did a great job with my big crazy family! There were a lot of us and she had patience and was very professional yet fun as well! I would definitely recommend her for your family portraits!
Shelley Bowles Wright
My husband and I met Samantha on turtle beach for our elopement, right away we could tell she was the right choice for our elopement photos. She made us feel comfortable and was able to capture so many beautiful photos of us!
She is a local to the area and knew of several locations that fit the vibe we were looking for, we were able to get photos in several places we would have never of known about if we didn't have Samantha as our photographer. We will cherish our photos for a long time.
Miranda & Justin
Samantha is an incredibly talented photographer, makeup artist and hair stylist. To make it even better, she is super fun to be around and is very patient. My kids love getting photos taken by her. I highly recommend Samantha Brown Artistry.
Celecia Quinn Jones
Samantha was an absolute pleasure to work with! We used her to have some family photos taken while on vacation. We're a large family with two babies under 2, Samantha was flexible with our schedule and catered to our specific needs. Not only does she take gorgeous photos but she makes the session fun and easy. She is also great at communicating pre & post session. I am absolutely thrilled with our photos and would definitely recommend working with Samantha.
Samantha is so amazing and talented. She is so patient and really turns out the most amazing pictures. She is by far the best family photographer I have had. I wish I would have found her for our last few trips to Florida. You will not regret choosing Samantha!!!
We used Samantha for our Engagement shoot and she was amazing. Even when we had to change location (my fault!), Samantha was beyond accommodating. The photos are gorgeous and captured my fiancé and me beautifully and came out amazingly on our save the dates! I would definitely use Samantha in the future.
Samatha did a wonderful create photo shoot ,we ask for a country setting and she exceeded the setting. We will definitely use her again. Thank you Samantha
Samantha was absolutely amazing! She was easy to work with and got my little 6 month old to look right at the camera! These pictures were very important to me and I could not have asked for better results!! 💙 We will definitely be booking with her again!
Samantha was very easy and fun to work with. She has an awesome energy about her. She did great working with our 3 year old too. The pictures turned out better than expected. Her turn around time for photos was quick. It was easy to contact her with questions and she always replied within same day. Would definitely recommend.
Samantha is the most personal and friendly person and photographer I have ever met! She is amazing at her profession and has such a natural way with kids to make them love getting their photos taken. I will only ever use Samantha she is simply the best! Thank you for capturing the most meaningful moments of my family!
Our kiddo was not in a good mood and I was worried about getting any good pics but Samantha did a wonderful job and I’m thrilled with the photos. She was flexible and worked with us when a few days before our original vacation we came down with covid. Would hire her again next time we travel to Florida. Great package for a great price!
Samantha is great to work with. I chose her company because she is equally talented with hair/makeup/photography and I wanted “a one stop shop.” Working with her is easy and fun. She listens and accommodates requests. My pics turned out great! I recommend her services.
We were on vacation in Siesta Key, we decided to get our 3 year olds pictures done for her 4th birthday. Although our 3 year old is ultra shy and stranger danger to anyone. Samantha got her to open up and she took amazing pictures. Samantha was patient, sweet, energetic, professional, honestly I can’t say enough! Thank you again for your time and patience with this crazy girl!
Hired her to do both makeup, hair and photography for the wedding- we loved all the pictures. Her ability to capture special moments in a wonderful artistic manner was amazing! Makeup and hair were perfect. Would highly recommend her to anyone!
Joy & Terri
Samantha made our out-of-town family photoshoot stress free! She was very accommodating when I made a mistake in our original date and graciously moved our date. The communication from day 1 when I originally booked, all the way up to picture day was excellent! She worked well with my girls and gave direction to all of us, capturing some absolutely breathtaking shots of our family that we will treasure for years to come
"Samantha worked with me to make my proposal such a special moment! Her advice around timing and her ability to capture the big moment surpassed all expectations. Beautiful photos and such a great experience!"
Matt & Stephanie
Samantha was great and we will use her again for any photography needs while in the area. She is pleasant, has a great personality and made everyone comfortable.
Considering we had our session scheduled during the red tide, thunderstorms Samantha did an amazing job. The night we had scheduled for a sunset session it was pouring rain, she quickly came up with another plan to get us in the next morning and the photos came out amazing. She was creative, funny, made you feel comfortable and overall responsive to all our questions. I will definitely use her again in the future.
Samantha was SO easy to work with! Flexible, accommodating. knowledgeable and made everyone feel comfortable. I am excited to get back to Fla. to have another family session with her.
Sam was fantastic!! She fit us in last minute while we were visiting Bradenton for the holidays. Our original photographer had a family emergency and canceled. However, she gave us Samantha’s contact info and she responded promptly. She was professional, fun, and made the experience wonderful. So much better than I had hoped for. We will treasure the memories and photos.
The Ray Family
Samantha is a joy to work with! Her camera lens captures moments that you’ll want to cherish forever. She is professional, extremely creative and brings enthusiasm into each project!
Highly recommend! She worked with me to help my future son-in-law with a surprise proposal!
We live in TN and had no idea where to make this happen! We told her our idea and she knew the perfect place! She captured these precious moments for us to share with all of our family and friends!!!! Thank you again for helping Chase surprise Alex!!! ❤️💍❤️ we are so in love with the pictures!!
Amazing experience with Samantha. Made me feel comfortable and confident. Pic turned out great. 100% recommend.
Samantha recently photographed my dads 70th birthday party and we absolutely loved her! We had over 100 people, and it was set up similar to how a wedding would be set up. She worked so well with our family, and was extremely professional throughout the entire event. The photos turned out great, and we received all the photos within 48 hours! I highly recommend hiring her for your event - we most definitely will be having her photograph our next big event in Naples.
Monica T Sachdev-
Had a great time & the pictures turned out amazing! Highly recommend Samantha!
We had the pleasure of working with Samantha Brown back in June. She did such an amazing job on my daughters hair and makeup as well as her photos. Would definitely recommend and look forward to working with her in future!
