Hello! I am Sam Waidler!

I am a photographer, avid traveler, and outdoor enthusiast specializing in portrait and elopement photography! I am based in Northern New Mexico. I have a bachelor's degree in photojournalism and a deep appreciation for many types of photography including editorial, wildlife, portraiture, and of course small weddings and elopements. Check out my portfolio page for more examples of my work!   

I love adventure elopements! While I photograph all types of weddings, adventure elopements are my favorite! There is something so magical about getting hitched in a stunning outdoor location. I can even help you with planning your elopement!

I can't wait to meet you and learn more about your photography needs! 

Now booking 2024!
