    Just the best of the best
    Sam is just amazing, I really like the touch he has with people (guest) and the guy knows what he is doing. My wedding was at the beach and he was able to find the most amazing spot in Laguna beach to have the pictures taken, once he emailed me the finish product I could not believe how perfect it all was. He was so natural and caring as well as professional, I was iniatially supposed to call him or text him once we got to the place so that he could start, BUT once I got out of the limousine, he was there ready to go and already had taken about 20 pictures before I came out. My guest and family were impressed since we had another family wedding about 10 months ago and of course you were able to see the contrast in the professionalism, from the way he dresses to the way he is. I do want to say -sorry Sam, it was a really humid day, you are amazing and thanks for making my day amazing as well. 1000 star rating for sure.

    Sam shot my surprise engagement for me out on the Santa Monica Pier. He helped me from the start with many ideas and ways to get the surprise exactly how I envisioned it. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

    Sam did a fantastic job of taking photos for the cover and interior of a magazine published by a high-profile client of mine. He was very professional and provided me with very excellent photography. He was also very knowledgeable and helped me prep my people for the photo shoot. I would definitely use him again!

    Sam did a great job. He was fast and achieved what I was looking for - lots of angles, viewing distances etc. I'd definitely recommend Sam to anyone and will use him for future projects.

    I hired Sam to take maternity/family pictures for April 24, 2016 at Puddingstone in San Dimas. He was SO incredibly nice, easy to work with, had great ideas, and super talented. The finished product was amazing, there was so many amazing pictures, it was so hard to choose! He was also extremely fast at getting me the final edited pictures, less than a week! I would absolutely recommend Sam to anyone looking to do any type of shoot and would definitely use him again in a heartbeat.

    Engagement Photography
    Verified Review
    Sam is an amazing photographer & a true professional. I was in a bind after my photographer backed out of my engagement shoot an hour before our appointment. I found Sam on thumbtack & was blessed he accepted the challenge. He met my fiancé and I an hour later & the results were amazing. He was beyond professional & made our experience truly remarkable. Very pleased with our results!

    Sam was recommended to me by a friend who had used him for their wedding and they had nothing but great things to say of their experience with him. She knew I was in the market for a photographer for my own wedding so I took a look at her wedding pictures just to make sure they were up to my standards and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of his work. Now I say pleasantly surprised because this was after many failed attempts of friends referring me to their wedding photographer but being disappointed when I saw the picture quality or lack there of . The pictures were not that clear and they did not look very professional which is something I expect from wedding photos . My journey for a wedding photographer with excellent work and reasonable prices continued. That is until I saw the beautiful pictures Sam had taken of my friend and her husband at their wedding . All the pictures were clear, vibrant colors and everyone in the pictures were posed beautifully. You could really see the attention to detail in his work .I booked a appointment for me and my fiancé to meet with him, we got to see more of his work and he explained the different packages he offered and they were actually very reasonable for what you are getting . Wedding pictures are going to cost you a pretty penny but every bride knows this. What you expect to have in return are magnificent photos not pictures that you don't even want to look at because your disappointed at how they came out. Unfortunately I do have a few friends who had this happen to them. I felt pretty confident with hiring Sam after looking at his work and especially after meeting with him. You could tell he loves what he does and knows how to take beautiful pictures where you come out looking your absolute best.He ending up doing our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. The engagement photos came out gorgeous, I loved them ! He made us feel very comfortable and gave us direction on how to pose and everything came out looking so great . After this I knew our wedding photos were going to come out beautiful. The day of our wedding I was in a state of absolute bliss and he really captured this in our photos. There were even candid pictures were we aren't posing for the camera that came out so great . He really knows what he's doing . I would recommend him to anyone looking for some beautiful, top notch photos. Wonderful experience with Sam, I have one of our wedding photos blown up in a big frame in our living room and it always brings a big smile to my face when I look at it

    I have hired Sam to do numerous occasions for my family and hope you do also! I just realized he has a Thumbtack and want to make sure others know of his great photography skills. The biggest event Sam has done for us is my daughters quinceañera and I love that he knows how to capture a priceless moment! He makes sure you get the poses you want but also catches the behind the scenes that you don't realize happened until you see the pictures. It is always a pleasure working with him and am looking forward to have Wrm Photography again for our yearly family picture this summer!

    Sam did a great job. My fiancé and I hired Sam to do our engagement pictures and are so happy with how they came out we went to CalTech and Colorado Street bridge and everything came out great. He will be doing our wedding in November. We look forward to those pictures as well.
    Sam G. Jan 28, 2016

    Thank you Nicole, I look forward to the big day as well. Please let me know if you need anything from me. Best!

  • Elizabeth E. Jan 25, 2016
    After careful consideration of who to choose to take our wedding pictures, my husband and I decided on Sam. His professionalism and ability to connect with us so effortlessly, confirmed without a doubt, he was the best fit for us. This was 5 years ago, and until this day, we don't regret our decision. We are still very much in love with our photos - especially the candid pictures Sam took that captured the best of our personalities. Sam has become our family photographer. Since then, we've hired him to do our Christmas pictures (taken in the comfort of our home) as well as several other celebrations throughout the years. He is also a man of his word who delivers his pictures on time!! (I'm big on that) I highly recommend WRM Photography.
    Sam G. Jan 28, 2016

    Thank you Elizabeth. It's always a pleasure!

  • Linda K. Jan 25, 2016
    Sam came out and did profile pictures of our entire staff for our website. He was very professional and gave everyone tips on what would photograph best before our shoot date. He arrived early and was ready to start taking photos exactly at our designated time. He was very personable and delivered edited photos within 48 hours. Thank you! Will be recommending.

    Thank you so much for your review Linda! WRM Photography appreciates it. Your team was awesome and I Iook forward to working with you guys again. Best!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
You will find that working with me will be very easy. The first step is to have a conversation so that I may meet all of your expectations. After our conversation, I ask that you fill out a form in order to make sure I have everything I need to photograph your event. I am always available for a phone call, text message or email.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been behind the camera for over 15 years. After my first photography class in college my admiration for fine photos has lead me to consistently hone and elevate my skills. As an entrepreneur in various businesses I knows that art must be married with outstanding customer service and reasonable pricing.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I enjoy worked with all types of customers from large weddings requiring multiple team members to studio or on location shoots with families, actors and models. I understand projects or events have budgets and welcome discussing what would overdeliver on your budget.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The most important part of hiring a provider is having that first conversation on the phone. Ask many questions and make sure you are working with a professional. Reviews are another important part of your due diligence.
