Hello! My name is Samantha Waidler. I am a freelance photojournalist based in Northern New Mexico. I have a degree in journalism/photojournalism from San Francisco State University. I have been working as a freelance/wedding photographer for several years. When I am not photographing I work as a 4th grade teacher in Los Alamos, NM. I love to travel and love being in the outdoors. While I enjoy all photography assignments my favorite is photographing couples, especially in unique and beautiful locations!
