SamErica Studios FAQ

How would you describe your style?

We definitely think our style is a reflection of us. Our style consists of photojournalistic imagery for people who like:

  • colorful minimalism
  • traveling adventures
  • edgy fashion
  • tender moments
  • making memories

Sooooo, let's make some magic. 

do you guys actually have a studio?

hahah currently, no. but "SamErica Studios" sounded so much better than "SamErica Photography". But a tiny house studio is definitely in our near future. 

How much do you charge?

Being creatives our whole lives, plus fully understanding what it takes to run an honest business, we know how to effectively execute our time to best suit any photo needs. Portraits start at $300. Southern California weddings begin at $3000. Stateside weddings start at $5000. Elopements begin at $2000. Branding shoots start at $500.

Travel is included in all out of state/country bookings.

Do you help with wedding day timelines?

Girl, YAS. Here is where Type A, OCD Erica chimes in. We have created full timeline PDFs for each package so that you can be sure that everything you hoped for is getting documented.  We aren't just your photographers that day. We get INVOLVED (if you want). We're your coordinators, your peace makers, your mom calmer-downers, your Tequila givers, your boutonniรจre pin-ers, your dress holders, your unofficial MOH + Best Man. We're your best friends that day, we got you. 

What should I wear to my engagement session?

Honey, we got you. We have a full PDF styling guide geared to glam up you and your boo in the most comfortable way possible. 


Absolutely! Passports are updated and ready for adventure! Travel fees are incurred for anything further than 200 miles from San Diego, California. 

what makes you different than other photographers?

So glad you asked! We always like to go the extra mile. So for shoots like engagements and weddings, we design Save the Dates and Thank You cards and print them at no additional cost to you! It's just our way of showing that we appreciate you choosing us for your photography needs!  

Do you always shoot together?

For full day events, yes we always shoot together, but for shorter events, Erica goes solo and Sam does the editing. 

Do you offer prints?

So much yes. We are firm believers in keepsake art and we offer a variety of print options from photo albums to large prints. 

How do we know you guys are the right photographers for us?

We get it, in a sea of photographers, it's like dating. They all seem great, but they aren't the one for you. We actually wrote a whole blog post about choosing the right photographer for you. And if you vibe with classic edits, creative style, and like our personalities, then drop us a line. Let's make some magic.
