WEDDING & LIFESTYLE CLIENTS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
WHY SHOULD WE HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
There is so much wrapped up into just one day and we want to catch it all, having an extra photographer snapping pictures can be key!
IS THE RETAINING DEPOSIT REFUNDABLE?
Unfortunately the deposit is not refundable. The retaining deposit will ensure that your wedding date has been booked and the date is no longer available to anyone else. If you choose to forego services with Samantha Jay Photography then you forfeit your deposit.

An anniversary session can be a great way to mark the milestone of your one year anniversary! Always a nice idea to have some beautiful shots to look back on. Anniversary Sessions are always low stress and super fun.

Choosing your location for portraits or wedding photography is key. Generally, It is a great idea to find areas with beautiful natural light. You also want to choose a location that you feel comfortable with and perhaps means something to you as a couple.
