Hello! I am Sam Waidler!

I am a photographer, avid traveler, and outdoor enthusiast specializing in wedding and elopement photography! I am based in Northern New Mexico. I have a background and education in photojournalism and a deep appreciation for many types of photography including editorial, wildlife, portraiture, and of course wedding/elopements.    

I love adventure/outdoor 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!

Affordable Rates and Packages available. I believe that wedding photography should be affordable and accessible to everyone! 

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