Tampa, FL Wedding 
lead photographer

Samantha "Sam" Jurgens

I was born and raised in the Twin Cities until I was 10 years old. My family then relocated to Hawaii for a few years where my parents were stationed. It was there I gained a love for adventure and the great outdoors. My days were filled with traveling to mountain peaks, new beaches and new restaurants.

I decided to move down to Florida just six years ago to pursue the the coastal lifestyle. I have a background in the fashion and buying industry, and found it be super exciting. I traveled regularly to New York City to purchase for a big name retailer here in Florida. While I enjoyed my career I still found myself wanting for more satisfaction in pursuing a more creative route.

For me, photography builds deep connections, lets me experience new places, and gives me the creative outlet I always needed. I love being able to see the world through my camera. When I'm working with a couple or family, I can appreciate the vulnerability that they may feel.

My goal is to make you feel beautiful and confident. I want you to look at your images and feel like a rockstar all while enjoying the memories that we were able to capture. Photography is a tool that I use to build others up and I'm proud to sign my name to each and every image I deliver.

In my free time I am either planning for creative shoots, indulging in retail therapy, or finding new restaurants. I am free spirited, fun and love being able to laugh and create memories with my clients.
