Photography is something Samantha has always been passionate about, and something that she uses as a creative outlet. In 2008 Samantha began on the path of professional photography shooting for local recreation teams. She started photographing their team, individual, and game photographs and from there she ventured into wedding photography. Some of her favorite types of photography include engagements, weddings, senior portraits, and maternity. For Samantha, there is something about capturing these major life milestones that shines through in pictures in a satisfying way.
As a wedding photographer, there isn’t much that she won’t do for the bride or her bridal party on the big day. One of her favorite wedding photography stories was when, upon arriving at the church, the Pastor informed her that unless she was wearing a dress, he would not allow her into the church to take pictures. Since this was not a restriction that was communicated to Samantha or the bride prior to wedding day, everyone was surprised. Fortunately, the hotel’s bridal suite was nearby, and the bride had someone run back and grab her rehearsal dinner dress. Luckily the bride and Samantha wore the same size and the dress fit perfectly. Samantha went on to photograph the entire ceremony in the bride’s rehearsal dinner dress! Samantha can now laugh at this awkward situation, but fortunately, she “rolled with it” and things worked just fine (goes to show you how planning, communication, and asking lots of questions is so important).
In her free time, Samantha is also an avid motorcyclist both on and off-road, and even won a women’s championship in 2015 for endurance racing. She is also very active in the GORUCK endurance and fitness craze. Check it out!
Brenda obtained a bachelor’s degree in Art from Salisbury University. She’s now going on two years with Trans4mation Photography and soon will be featured in a Live TV interview as well as a Live TV wedding on Fox News in February 2017.
Brenda’s true passion is photography, specifically wedding and portraiture photography, as it pulls at her heart strings. As an artist, her mission is to capture people’s sweetest, happiest and unrehearsed moments with a blink of a shutter, allowing a moment to become a tangible keepsake.
Brenda is attached to the hip to her two fur-babies, Spike (16) and Puma (6). They’re an odd pair (an old cockapoo and a chunky house cat) but are the best of friends. She loves going to old book stores, vintage shops, the beach, museums, and anyplace where she can relax or get her hands on something that’s one of kind. Her musings entail cobblestone streets, historic buildings, Spanish moss, and natural light, to name a few.
Like the rest of the Trans4mation Photography team, Brenda is passport ready, loves to travel, and challenges you to put her to the task!
