Meet The Photographers
The Owner and Lead Photographer
My name is Samantha Crawford. I'm a natural light photographer who specializes in photojournalism photography. I'm always looking for a good combination of spontaneity and beauty, trying to create beautiful images by helping you pose when needed, styling beautiful details, but not interfering with the story of the day.
My unique style has sculpted my work since 2003, when I took photography in school and started capturing the details, emotions and natural beauty around me. Since opening AOP in 2011, I have been fortunate to have met some amazing couples and families and was thrilled to win Wedding Wire's 2017 Couple's Choice Award.
Meet my family!
Some fun facts about me:
I am an only child and I am left handed.
I love listening to music and dancing; and I love all genres.
I graduated from OCC in 2008 with a Concentration in Music for voice and piano.
I enjoy reading, relaxing on a beach, a medium rare steak and roller coasters.
Hi, I'm Krysten Sarkissian, I am a natural light photographer as well as Samantha. We have worked together since 2012 photographing many weddings with different perspectives.
In high school I learned how to develop film and began my long standing affair with the darkroom. This continued into my college years, along with many digital and processing classes, where I graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Photography! I have worked with Samantha since 2012 and our style and perspectives blend beautifully.
