I am following all rules & guidelines related to the coronavirus. At this time, only outdoor photography sessions with the proper precautions are allowed in Los Angeles County.
We can maintain social distancing with an uncrowded alfresco location, at least 6 feet between us at all times, and contactless posing throughout our session.
Sessions include engagement, maternity, family, and portrait.
I very much look forward to weddings & indoor sessions later down the line! :)

Hello and Welcome!
I’M SO HAPPY THAT YOU’RE HERE!
My name is Samantha (Sam) Turchin, and I’m a photographer.
I love capturing momentary scenes and scenic moments—and those spaces in between.
My mission is to photograph settings as they feel and you as you are: genuinely, uniquely, and radiantly.
Wedding, Portrait, and Lifestyle Photography
VIVID. DREAMY. DRAMATIC.
CANDID. COLORFUL. REAL.
EARTHY. ENCHANTING. FUN!
from the Blog
from Past Clients:
"Working with Samantha for my wedding felt like being with an old friend. She exudes warmth and kindness and she is exceptionally talented. My fiancé and I both felt like she understood the essence of our relationship and she was able to capture that effortlessly on camera."
"Samantha is SUCH a sweetheart & super down to earth. It was such an ease to work with her and you could easily tell how comfortable we (and everyone she photographed) were just through how natural and comfortable we looked in the photos. The quality of her work is really beautiful — her photos definitely have a timeless, elegant, and romantic feel.”
"Her personality is so nice and fun and down to earth and calm while also in charge and confident. It was the perfect combo of someone who was cool to hang out with but also experienced and professional."
"Sam is a true artist. She's very present in the moment, recognizes what's important, and captures that moment with a style that is just extraordinary."
"Our family photos look like works of art, our first look and ceremony photos were close and intimate, the pictures of the guests at the reception were candid and real, the shots of the concert we had after the dinner were dark and atmospheric, the photos of the decor and food looked straight out of a magazine... Basically, Samantha got the perfect shot every situation."
“Sam has the absolute most perfect chemistry you want when booking a photographer. She is genuinely enthusiastic about every single shot she takes and her shots are breathtaking."
