Portrait Photography

Sam was so accommodating and a lot of fun. The photos are gorgeous and I would HIGHLY encourage any group of family and friends who are getting together in Tahoe or Reno for ANY reason to hire Sam. This was the best decision we made and I can’t believe I didn’t think of it with prior vacations. Beat decision we made and worth every penny! My parents had a small little wedding album 56 years ago and you can barely see any of the photos. Now they have these are they are so happy.

Sam did a wonderful Job with the photos he took for my Short Term Rental. He was a great communicator and did everything possible for the pictures to come out great. He was much more reasonably priced than many other photographers in the area and I would highly recommend him to a friend or others. Overall a great person and fantastic photographer!

Hiring Sam Hamilton to do my son's Senior photos: BEST. DECISION. EVER! I've nicknamed Sam the "Quintessential Tahoe Photographer", as his body of work showcases unique mountain settings and highlights his subjects from intriguing angles looking natural and in their "element". It's what made Sam's work a stand-out from other photographs who seemed to take more of a "cookie-cutter" approach. In addition, the faces in Sam's photos are the focal-point, well-lit, crisp and natural-looking. We were in hurry and on a budget. In addition, we were battling weather issues, so our job date was a moving target. Sam rose to the challenge on all counts. The day we did the shoot, we were immediately impressed with Sam's professionalism. He took almost as much time scouting the site for the best locations/angles as he did with taking the actual pictures. He was great at putting my son at ease and capturing him in natural poses... which was no easy feat! My son has a history of freezing-up and appearing "stiff", with a forced and unnatural smile in photos. With that, my son had one request: "Make me look cool." Mission accomplished ... see the results for yourself below... :-) If you're considering hiring Sam Hamilton to do your photos, JUST DO IT! You won't be disappointed.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have worked on so many types of projects that my customers vary widely, but they all have a vision of what they want out of their photos. The vision is not always clear to them, and may take a little time to flush out, but that's part of the fun of my job Families Couples Manufacturers Real estate agents Builders Interior designers Homeowners

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    I've been working with Truckee, CA based builder on documenting their custom home builds, for their portfolio. It has been fun to walk with them through homes they have built, hear what they love about the homes, and try to create a photo that shows off those unique aspects.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Like everything, photography is a customer service job. Its important to know that your service provider and you get along and can visualize the same result.
