Photographer, Mama, Proud Nerd

Sammy Coyle

Hi Friends, I’m Sammy! 

My journey to photographing all the beautiful moments on your special day started back in 2011 when I fell in love with photography during college. Studying graphic design and photography at Michigan State, I picked up my first camera and captured my initial images featuring my family and friends. It was then that I learned the priceless nature of freezing time and capturing those beautiful moments with the people you love that can be cherished for years to come. 

In my first years as a business owner, it became clear to me that the nature of photographing weddings lights up my heart. I believe wholeheartedly in the power of true love and the beauty of sharing your heart with another.  

As a wife to my handsome husband Sean and momma of a beautiful bundle of joy named Elizabeth, I am blessed to enjoy smiles and giggles between taking care of my couples and helping them capture this first step in a new chapter together. 

Outside of work you’ll find me cooking, cross stitching, at home with a good book or listening to a podcast. I also love date night adventures with my husband to have new and fun experiences or sitting at home cuddling by the fireplace just enjoying each other’s company. 

As a loud and proud nerd, I do enjoy Dungeons and Dragons and appreciate a good game of strategy. 

While this may be the first time we are meeting, I would love to get to know you better and help you enjoy this once in a lifetime day with every ounce of the happiness and love you deserve.

With 5+ years of experience, I am blessed to have captured the stories of so many passionate couples. 

From couples who are just getting started to those who have their entire wedding planned out, I love that my couples are committed to a beautiful loving day that represents their truest selves. 

I adore the way my couples look at each other like the only person in the room; committed not just to their special day but for their whole life to their best friend.

I love capturing my couples exactly as they are, often including personal aspects or hobbies they love to show off.

Whether it’s a little smooch or a passionate embrace, my couples love each other unapologetically, no matter who is watching and I am here for it!

SCoyle Photo couples desire and plan beautiful wedding days surrounded by the people they love, cherishing all the little moments that will last a lifetime. 

My couples thrive on wedding days filled with lighthearted laughs and joyful love. With laid back personalities, my couples always enjoy a good joke and a pun or two. 

No matter what the day brings, a SCoyle Photo couple's most important wish is to just be themselves surrounded by the people they care about most on a day filled with love and laughter.
