Thanks to my friend Sam Elkins for this photo.



Hi there! My name's Sam Landreth. I'm a destination photographer based out of Portland, Oregon, but I usually find myself out of town. I love kombucha, every little thing about the Pacific Northwest & crisp fall days in my favorite city in the world — Portland!

I spend most of my time capturing happy, natural + candid moments of couples in love & hearing the stories behind their relationships. I wouldn't want to spend my time any other way.

When I was 10, I picked up a little pink Kodak camera — & never looked back. I grew in the craft over the years, upgrading to new cameras + learning new styles & ultimately, I've developed a love for capturing & preserving precious moments in time. I'm endlessly happy to have turned my love for photographs into working with others for a living!

I've made it my mission to create photos that are moody, unique & that form a visual bookmark for a certain timeframe in others' lives. I adore capturing essences & allowing them to shine through the photograph: nothing is more gratifying to me than making clients-turned-friends feel radiant. 

I'd absolutely love to photograph you! Let’s hang out over a cup of coffee, get to know each other & chat about your vision. I can't wait to create something wonderful together.
