Meet The Photographers

The Owner and Lead Photographer

Samantha Crawford Owner of All Occasion Photography

Hi there and welcome!

My name is Samantha Crawford. I opened AOP in 2011 and I specialize in natural light photography. My editing style is clean, classic and timeless and I offer affordable, high quality photography to last a lifetime.

My unique style has sculpted my work since 2003, when I started capturing the natural beauty around me. Since then, I have photographed over 50 portrait sessions and 100 weddings. Please continue reading to learn more!

Meet my family!

Some fun facts about me:

  •  I'm 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.

  • I love binge watching netflix, chilling in my yoga pants, drinking hot cocoa and snuggling with my babies.

 Wedding Photographer

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 am a wife and mom of 2 beautiful dogs. In my spare time, I am a beach body coach and yoga enthusiast. I love to cook and frequently order from Blue Apron and LOVE it! I love to travel to tropical places and relax by or swim at the beach. I also drive a motorcycle!
