Lindsey + Nick - Winter Park Florida / The Capen House

I loved getting the chance to travel to Winter Park, Florida to be a part of Lindsey and Nick's wedding weekend! Lindsey and Nick have been dating for 11 years, and were married on 11/11 at 11:00. It was clearly a perfect day! Having been dating for so long, both families already felt like one big family, but it was so sweet to witness them making it official! Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Walker!

Kelsey + Justin - Cedar Hall Wedding Video

The prayer you hear at the beginning of this video may sound a bit old, and that's because it is! This is a prayer that Justin's grandfather would recite at every wedding he officiated. Kelsey and Justin thought since he is no longer with us, it would be a special way to include him by having it played during their ceremony. It was such a special moment! 

Kelsey + Justin's wedding day was filled with sweet, intentional moments like that. I am so glad they had me there to film this special day!

Bailey + Elick - Acre Restaurant

There is SO much I could say about this day, and this incredible couple. Bailey and Elick had a BRUNCH wedding at the amazing ACRE Restaurant, where they invited 31 of their closest family and friends. Their intentional approach to thier special day is one that will leave an impact on me forever. When it is so easy to be consumed in all that weddings entail, these two made a great effort to make this day less about them and more about their families and their love for the Lord.

It was such an honor to film the wedding of Hunter and Jennifer! A common comment made over the weekend was "we didn't think this day would come", but it did, and they soaked up every second of it! They were married at Sanctuary On The Square, on the Collierville Square which was decorated BEAUTIFULLY for Christmas, and then had an incredible reception Spring Creek Ranch Weddings! It was such a perfect day!

Stephanie + Chase - Wedding Video Memphis / Noah's Event Venue + Dixon Gallery & Gardens

I could not have asked for a better wedding to be the 100th wedding I've had the honor to film! Did I mention they had a PRONTO PUP STAND at their reception?! Stephanie and Chase are two incredible people, but don't take my word for it- watch their wedding film and listen to the wonderful things their friends and family had to say about them at their rehearsal dinner! It was such a special weekend getting to see these two come together surrounded by so much love.

Sydney + Lanier - Wedding Video / 409 South Main Memphis

THIS WEDDING! From the most special rehearsal dinner that started with drinks and appetizers while watching the sunset on the Mississippi River, and ended with some of the most special toasts from the bride and groom's family and friends. To getting to spend the day at the newly renovated 409 South Main working alongside Smash Studios Photography. To Sydney blowing us all away with her beautiful gown from Maggie Louise. To an extra special ceremony where Lanier saw his bride, Sydney, for the first time as she walked down the aisle. To an incredible reception venue with BEAUTIFUL florals and decor by the one and only Deedra Stone Designs. To an amazing meal by Simply Delicious Caterings. THEN the party started with Doctor Zarr's Amazing Funk Monster (who were phenomenal) and the evening wrapped up with KRYSTAL'S cheeseburgers being passed on the dance floor. Honestly, does it get better than that?!

Rob + Rebecca - Wedding Film / Junior League of Memphis

"I would like to raise a glass... to a marriage that was born in Heaven. And may it continue to be so..."

I love filming rehearsal dinners and hearing the bride and groom's family and friends' versions of how the two met and what transpired from there. Watch Rob and Rebecca's wedding film to hear some of the awesome toasts that tell their story so well. This wedding was SO lovely and not a single detail went overlooked. There was a really wonderful team of vendors to ensure just that-

Baby Kate

Hey there!

I'm so glad you found your way here!  I wanted to share with you the latest on what is REALLY going on over at Sami Sue Studios ;).

We welcomed our daughter, Katherine Fay, to our family January 6th!  She has been such a sweet addition and we are all adjusting well.  Her big brother, Jay, loves her oh so much! :)  I am so blessed that this business allows me to be at home with them both.

This weekend I am jumping back into the swing of things and filming my first wedding of the year.  I know 2017 is going to be great!  I'm almost completely booked for the year, so please don't hesitate to inquire if you are interested in having me film your wedding.

xoxo,
Sami Sue
