Well, @sonreyfilms has done it again ❤️ I asked Brittany if we could do a new brand film that incorporated my family and the fact that I work from home with my husband, both of us being self employed, running businesses and parenting our boys in one beautiful mess of a life. This was everything I could have imagined and as much as I don’t love seeing my face on the screen, I love seeing the joy my job brings to said face. I mean, I am having FUN y’all!!!! This career is everything I built it to be and I don’t take a single session, client or day for granted and I am thankful every damn day. Thank you for doing life with me @fueledgraphicdesign ❤️
Chandra + Trey’s engagement session is on the blog today! Head to the link in my bio and then click ‘blog’. Tap to see the amazing vendors who helped make this styled, yet real engagement session so perfect! #samanthacasasphotography
Introducing Dr. & Mrs. Gomez! 😍 Gayle planned their wedding on the same weekend as his graduation so his family would be able to make it. They were so sweet and definitely had a blast (as you can see on my instastories). Congratulations, you two! #samanthacasasphotography#scpcouple#scpbrideandgroom
I take only a few graduate sessions every year and I’ll be honest, I really love them. Talking with these smart, ambitious young people on the verge of finding their path in life, it’s nothing short of amazing.
Happy Mother’s Day ❤️ These are mine and they are everything. I love watching these two grow and change, their bond with each other grows daily and the love they have for me is changing from a constant need to a want. They want to be around us as their parents, our family as a whole. They want to show us how they’ve grown and changed, they want us to be proud and we are, so so proud. Parenthood is a crazy ride and I’m still thanking the universe that these two are mine!!!!
Yes, I’ll ask you to dance at your engagement session. No, you don’t have to be good at it. Just enjoy the special moment with your fiancé and I promise you’ll have some cute photos to cherish. 💖 #samanthacasasphotography
Happy Friday! My husband has a softball game tonight and then I’m going to get my gear ready for G+J’s wedding on Sunday! I’m loving this print by @cottonwoodprint from a recent engagement session I captured. #samanthacasasphotography
Mother’s Day is such a big heavy day for so many and I’m thinking of all my clients and friends who are missing their mommas so much right now. Losing a parent is the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through and I just can’t imagine going through it without my mom. I’m sending all my love to those of you hurting right now ❤️
I’ll probably be sharing a ton of momma images leading up to Mother’s Day and I’m not even a little bit sorry. I’ll probably also be a little weepy thinking of how many beautiful mothers I have in my life from family and friends to colleagues and clients and how incredibly thankful I am for each and every one ❤️
If you didn’t have bridal portraits or even wedding photos, let’s get you dressed up and in front of my camera! This gorgeous bride was married last year but she didn’t have bridal portraits. I’m also going to offer a special on anniversary sessions throughout the summer in honor of my own wedding anniversary next week. ❤️#samanthacasasphotography
Genuine connections with real families, women and couples, this is what I live for. I connected with this beautiful momma years ago and have enjoyed building a friendship with her through our various sessions. I have a burning passion for photography, but more so for the amazing humans who share a piece of themselves whenever we meet ❤️
*Update: The ribbons are beautiful!* How do you feel about buying something from Amazon with only 1 review? I bought some styling ribbons right now but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they will look amazing on wedding days with the details. #samanthacasasphotography#gettingallthedetailsandmoments
My little ones slept most of the day today, so they are SO hyper right now. Perfect excuse to get out of the house and walk the aisles at Target on this rainy day. 😂 I don’t have any weddings this weekend but I’ll be on my computer trying to get a lot of tasks checked off my to-do list. Happy Friday, friends! #samanthacasasphotography
I’m all about outdoor ceremonies! Just make sure to 1. have a rain plan and 2. schedule the wedding when it’s not too harsh or dark (1.5 hours before sunset is a good time unless it’s shaded). #samanthacasasphotography
We jammed out to the trolls sound track, danced, and laughed a ton! I seriously love my job and documenting all the families I meet. ❤️

I recently came to the realization that my husband is my best friend. Not just my spouse best friend, but the one person I want to share all my time, stories and emotions with. I have so many amazing girlfriends that I love to laugh and drink too much with, but my husband, he’s the one I turn to. It’s interesting to me how relationships evolve over time and the best friends I had in my early twenties or the ones I shared the first few years of motherhood with have grown and changed as our lives have moved forward. I love them all so tenderly, even if I don’t see them often enough. And I’ve reached a sweet spot with my husband now that we work together full time and share most of our minutes together each day. We never know what the future holds and how this will change, but I’m holding on tight while I have it.
I remember vividly the days I carried my baby boys. Not everyday was a good day (I admit, I stayed pretty grumpy when I was pregnant) but there was never a day I didn’t have an overwhelming amount of love for my little ones or for my husband. I would sit and day dream about the boys I hadn’t met and think of all the ways I would love them as they grew. I also thought so much about my husband and how we’d created a life together, how we loved them so deeply and each other just the same ❤️
