RESERVE YOUR DATE
We are Reid and Samantha, a husband and wife team with a passion for storytelling and creating images for our couples that are romantic, natural, and timeless.
Over the past decade, it has been our privilege to document extraordinary couples and their unforgettable celebrations across the globe, and most specifically, the legendary American West.
Our experience allows us to not only capture your precious moments beautifully, but it also means you can breathe easily knowing that we can handle any situation that comes our way on a wedding day.
A photograph is the closest thing on earth to a time machine; through it, you are transported back and catch little glimpses of the people and events that have shaped you. We believe life is precious, people should be cherished, time is fleeting, and life’s moments, big and small, should be captured with this in mind.
Having been on the other side of the camera on our own wedding day, we know what it's like to be in your shoes! After 10 years of photographing weddings together, we have gained not only vast professional experience, but a discerning sensibility that helps us manage any scenario that arises on your wedding day. Our combined expertise and calm demeanors create a relaxed and cheerful atmosphere for you, allowing you to express genuine emotion and experience authentic love-filled moments.
We've gathered all our knowledge and expertise into a wedding day guide created exclusively for our clients to help them navigate the wedding planning process. Our wedding guide is full of tips and insights into preparing for your wedding day and making sure your photographs are all you've hoped for and more!
Sam and Reid are absolute the best! They did an amazing job with our wedding & engagement photos, I wish I could give them more than 5 stars! They're GREAT to work with, they immediately put us as ease during our engagement session and were so wonderful to be with on our wedding day. We loved sharing some of the most memorable times in our relationship with them and can't wait for more in our future! There are so many difficult decisions when planning a wedding...Sam & Reid are not one of them. Book them and know that you'll have two outstanding photographers who will work with you to capture your relationship beautifully.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sam and Reid of Orange Photographie! If you are considering them for your wedding photographers look no further. And this is coming from an extremely picky and detail-oriented former bride who had REALLY high standards for her big day. Not only is their work breathtaking (and shot on actual film, which really adds a timelessly classic and high-quality touch), but they captured all the little details and setting, as well as candid and moving moments between family and friends. We didn’t have to worry about anything. They were on top of it all from start to finish and we felt so taken care of by their professional approach. Neither my husband nor I much enjoy having our photo taken, but Sam and Reid have a real knack for making you feel so comfortable and at ease sharing more intimate moments in front of the camera. They are incredibly organized, prompt and even helped keep the whole day on schedule AND stepped in to help out during the reception when our band needed questions answered. In short, they’re the absolute best and we are eternally grateful to them for capturing our special day in such a beautiful way that we will be able to cherish forever.
I cannot say enough about Samantha & Reid!! They are professional, talented and the most lovely couple to top it all off! On the day of our wedding we lost power during cocktail hour (worst nightmare) and we weren't sure how the day would progress but Samantha kept me sane!! I can't thank her enough for being there for me and talking me off the ledge (the power did end up coming back on, thankfully!). I was already so impressed by them and THEN we received our pictures STUNNING. Being a typical critical bride, I was super paranoid to see the results. It was the most humid day in Virginia and my hair which was once curled turned flat and straight in no time...To my surprise, they managed to capture the best angles and that worry is gone. Jansen (my now husband) and I could not stop talking about how terrific our experience was with them. All of our wedding party and family agreed! They get the job done without being pushy or have you feeling like the photos are forced/over-posed. Can't say enough good things. Choosing them as our photo duo is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. YOU WONT REGRET WORKING WITH THESE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!!! DO IT!!!
Oh where to begin! When I started planning our dream wedding, photography was on the top of my list. We planned a destination wedding in Big Sky Montana, and we were recommended several photographers during the planning process. However, after seeing Orange Photographie’s work, I knew they would be perfect!! One of the things that set Orange Photographie apart for me was their attention to detail, and use of film photography. The film gave our photos a different feel, which I absolutely love! They also offered custom wedding coverage (which was very important to me) since I wanted them to be with us throughout our entire wedding day. Prior to the wedding we were able to Skype with them several times, and also met with them for brunch while visiting Montana. It was so much fun getting to know them! Not only are Samantha + Reid amazing to work with, but we also consider them great friends! After meeting with them it was easy to see how much they love what they do! They captured every moment, and delivered the most beautiful wedding photos! If you are looking for the perfect wedding photographers you can stop looking (because you’ve found them)!
We could not have picked a better photographer for our wedding weekend! When we started looking for photographers, we were first drawn to Orange Photographie's portfolio and how well they could capture intimacy and beauty for their weddings (especially in Montana!). When we got to meet Samantha and Reid, we were completely taken by how much they truly cared about getting to know their clients. It was such a joy to spend our wedding weekend with them, and they made us feel at ease (even while keeping our numerous wedding party / family photos moving!). We will always look back on our memories of that day thanks to their warmth, attention to detail, creative eye, and truly stunning photography.
Sam and Reid are so kind and incredibly talented. They not only captured beautiful photos of our wedding, but they also contributed to the day with their smiles and kind hearts. A favorite memory will always be taking a break with Sam and Reid to capture sunset photos--they were kind, happy, and contagiously passionate about their job, Montana, and each other. Sam and Reid are incredible people and photographers! They were a highlight of our wedding day and we are so grateful for the photographs and memories.
Samantha and Reid both did so much to help with our wedding...it went way beyond simply taking photographs! Samantha helped me get my dress on, put flowers on the cake, and didn't let me leave the cabin without my bouquet! Reid helped my fiance (now husband!) relax and ensured all the special moments were captured. They both made the day even more special and my husband and I both felt that we were spending the afternoon with friends and not people we just met.
Orange Photographie had been my dream photographers for about 3-4 years, I was completely astonished when they were hiding out in the woods as my soon to be fiance was proposing to me! It was a dream come true. Working with Samantha & Reid has been nothing less than perfection and such a blessing. We are continually amazed by the photos we have of the two of us and how well they were able to capture our love on film during our proposal, engagement and our wedding day. Not only will we have them be our photographers for the rest of our lives, but we've developed such a great friendship with them. I will be forever grateful for their work and will recommend them constantly for the rest of my life to anyone!!
Did you know that is the Spanish expression for "soul mates"?
Once upon a time as we were walking hand-in-hand in Mexico, someone called us "two halves of an orange."
They could see we were soul mates...two orange halves that formed a whole.
And so Orange Photographie was born.
We consider it an honor to photograph other soul mates' love stories.
