Joe + Jamie - Old Dominick Memphis Wedding Video

Joe and Jamie's wedding invitation invited everyone to the "BEST WEDDING EVER" and they didn't disappoint! This day was a rollercoaster of emotions for everyone -- Laughing and crying and laughing because they're crying. 

“Finding the person you get to spend your life with means that you always have your best friend by your side. To enjoy the best of life and to meet the challenges it has to offer head on. I have no doubt that you two are meant to be and that you’re the best of friends. As all friends are, you’ll be faced with challenges in your life and you must work together to overcome them... Many people say when you get married you become one. Yes, you become one unified couple, but you are each individual. You fell in love with each other because you liked what was different about each other. You appreciated each other's individual uniqueness, and you march to the beat of each other’s karaoke song. I would encourage you to always rejoice each others unique traits, and in loving each other you should never want to suppress that.”

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?!

Keeton + Christopher - Wedding Video / Cotesworth Plantation

You is kind. You is smart. You is important.

I was so excited to film Keeton and Chris's wedding at the Cotesworth Plantation, that was used as Celia Foote's home in the movie The Help! Keeton was STUNNING in a dress she designed herself. Not a detail was left forgotten, even down to the mini chocolate pies (let's just hope they left out the secret ingredient) ;)!

"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.

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
