We are a photographer, wife and wife team, based in Lafayette, Indiana. We specialize in photographing adventurous elopements and intimate weddings for all couples in love, including LGBTQ+ couples. You can often find us hiking with our dogs, road tripping, and exploring all the nature has to offer. We are all about helping adventurous couples like you realize that the wedding day of their dreams is possible - no matter what that dream looks like for you.
When did your wedding day become about everyone else? It seems like so many couples spend all that time planning, worrying about pleasing everyone, and stressing themselves out - only to end their wedding day realizing they barely got to enjoy it, and that it wasn't really what they wanted, at all. Eloping is about reclaiming your wedding day - to make sure you actually get to have a good time marrying the love of your life. This is the beginning of your marriage - and shouldn't it start off exactly the way you want it to?
You knew a traditional wedding wasn't for you - so you decided to throw tradition away, forget the pressure and expectations, and do your wedding, your way.
If you want a pristine white dress, or a clean suit, at the end of your wedding day - an adventure elopement may not be right for you. Picking up dirt is part of the adventure!
The mountains call your name in a way a stuffy ballroom never could. You see yourself getting married amongst mountain peaks, or ocean waves, or wildflower fields.

Absolutely amazing photos!! We just got married yesterday, and Sam has already sent us some edited pictures. It seems like she stayed up late working on them! Great experience with her. Sam helped us plan everything, and always replied quickly to emails or messages. She kept everything on track, and remembered everything for us. She made us feel less awkward by telling us what to do and fixed us when needed. It was so easy going and fun, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!! We had a great day, and we are so glad we chose Sam to capture it!💕

Sam and Bryt made our small destination elopement shine in the photos. I just adore Sam’s eye and editing style- you will be so happy if you book her! She has great energy, is thoughtful and up for any adventure!
We got to go on an adventure shot the day after our ceremony as part of the elopement package! Sam was helpful not only with the photographs but I’m the planning process as well. She’s the perfect person if you’re doing a destination wedding!

Samantha went above & beyond to capture such a beautiful moment! Months of planning, organizing and scoping out the perfect spot to hold the shoot went into this.
Within a few hours after the photo shoot she was able to provide us with a few sneak peaks 😍 her work is phenomenal and her personality is such a joy to be around. You could never go wrong booking a session with her!

Samantha is an incredible photographer. She made us feel so comfortable, told us how to pose, what to do and made sure we had fun doing it.
I wish I would have known her sooner so she could have done our wedding. All I know is you won’t go wrong hiring Samantha as your photographer. 🌈

Whether you are looking for an LGBTQ+ Friendly photographer or not, seriously it should be Sam + Bryt. We had THE BEST experience we could have asked for from this duo not only for our engagement photos but also our wedding. They are attentive, fun, and professional. Every question I had was answered and then some, both leading up to the event and on our wedding day. They are flexible and really took the time to know us so that they could reflect that in our photos. Every photo we have received has been incredible. They truly captured US for who we were and gave us coaching without uncomfortable posing. We will use them for every big event in our lives forever! I cannot recommend them enough!
