About this pro

At some point, we all need a beautiful image. My job is not only to take stunning photos that you will treasure forever but also to make the process as enjoyable as possible. My background is primarily in fashion and product photography, and have worked as a brand strategist for several companies. I am flexible with my work flow and promise to deliver you images you love. I can take beautiful images on a classic white backdrop in my studio or I can mix it up and put your product into an atmosphere that evokes the sense of a story. Aside from lifestyle and product work I have shot weddings and events. My strength in these areas is my ability to catch authentically candid moments that embody the emotion of the event: Two friends laughing, a sneaky kiss, the cute things children do when they think no one is watching- those are the memories that last, the ones that you will want to return to. I am extremely easy going as well and I promise our time working together will be fun and comfortable and will result in beautiful, professional grade images. My price included editing and all images (with the exception of weddings, which take a bit longer) will be returned to your hands in digital forms within 2-3 weeks. Photos are our most intuitive and easily translatable way to tell a story, and I want to help you share yours, whether it is your love story, behind the scenes of how your clothing line is created, your child growing up, your best friend's birthday party, or the opening of your new cafe. Let me help you capture the most valuable moments so you never have to miss one.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Generally all of my product, brand and event work starts from $60/hour and moves up from there depending on the time involved. If it is necessary for you to have a ceiling, but our shoot requires more hours than is in your budget- I am willing to work with you. All images will be in your hands via digital resource within 2-3 weeks and images will be available for download by everyone on your team. Weddings begin at $1,000. Since weddings take a little longer to edit, the images will be back to you within a month of the special day.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I like to begin by getting to know my client- this could be over the phone, Skype or preferably, over a cup of tea. The reason this orientation is so crucial is it gives me a feel for who they are, while simultaneously allowing me to discuss in detail what their vision is for their project. Communication is key to guarantee satisfaction with the final product.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I studied photography in College and graduated from the University of Washington with a BFA in Photography.
    Coverage Area for Sam Stenson Photography is about 5+ miles of Portland, OR.
