Hi! I'm Sam

Welcome to my Zankyou Profile.... 

Here you'll find a selection of my favourite images, FAQ's, contact details and a little bit about me. Enjoy the photos, read the info and give me a call or email if you'd like to know more. Whether that's to see more photos, have a look through my fine art prints and albums or just to see if we 'click', meeting up over a tea, coffee, water or wine is the perfect opportunity to do all of this :)

About Me ...

I live with my fiancé in East Sussex, with our cat Lily and sausage dog Dinky, who, I might add, has a rather impressive following on Instagram! When I'm not photographing weddings and babies I'm photographing all three of them, much to their dismay most of the time! When your hobby is your career you don't really do much else! Well, actually, eating out, I love that.... and do that quite alot!!!

I haven't always been a photographer, I worked in engineering for many years before I went to a friends wedding with my super-duper brand-spanking-new camera that was way too advanced for me and I had no idea how to use (yes, I was one of THOSE wedding guests). I ended up taking photos that the bride and groom fell head over heels in love with, THAT feeling was the start of what is now a very rewarding career, to make others happy with my photography is very, very special. 

Since then I have taken multiple courses at the London School of Photography, shot over 75 weddings and won 2 awards. I'm also extremely proud to say that I've been featured in Vogue, Brides, Wedding Ideas Magazine, Surrey Bride, Sussex Life, Guides For Brides, The English Wedding Blog and have been a Regional Finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards for the last 3 years.

Anyway, thats all from me, I shall hope to hear from you soon

I used their services for my wedding

Sam is so lovely. I was incredibly nervous about being the centre of attention at our wedding but she made us feel at ease from the very first meeting. We actually enjoyed having our pictures taken. And we have some beautiful photos as a result. It was an absolute pleasure having Sam at our wedding. I’d highly recommend her x

I know them professionally

We used Sam to do the images of our products for a GQ Magazine photo shoot. They were so good we’ve since used them on our website and social media posts. Having met her at a friends wedding and being so impressed by her warm and caring nature we couldn’t help but ask for help. She’s been amazing and we’re already looking at other projects we can get her involved with. Would happily recommend every time.

Samantha Pells is an absolutely fabulous photographer, who captures every little detail and moment in such an exceptional  way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Not only was Sam our wedding photographer back in 2015, but she has has been doing regular sessions over the past year of our baby daughter and these photos don’t disappoint either!
