The friendly face behind the images

Hello! I’m Sam aka Samuel Jacob. I’m a life loving, ocean swimming, creative, slightly awkward, regularly laughing, Novocastrian guy who loves people and his job passionately. My aim is to capture moments rich with real emotion, whether that be subtle or expressive. I am able to capture these shots by creating a comfortable and relaxed environment where everyone is comfortable to be themselves. Most of all, I want every couple to have stunning and tasteful photographs that they can look back on throughout their marriage.

Oh, and I want you to look bloody good!

want to get to know me more?

“Sam is amazing! You need him for your wedding!!! Sam did both our engagement and wedding photography and we were so happy with the photos! He has such a professional, friendly and easy going presence which is very appreciated if you are a stress head like me. He is a great communicator and always replied promptly to every message. I was so excited to receive my wedding photos and I was not disappointed. But what blew me away was the extra care and attention that Sam put into the packaging and presentation our photos. Thank you Sam you're the best!”

“From the very first search looking for a photographer I just knew Sam would be the one. His passion for his work shines through every shot, his attention to detail is unbeatable and his energy is contagious. We first met Sam for a quick meet and greet to see if he was the real deal and everything just clicked into place. Our ideas came together perfectly. Sam travelled to Sydney for our sneaky engagement shoot in Luna Park and managed to make the most camera shy couple feel at ease. Our photos came back within weeks and we couldn't have been more thrilled. Again, Sam and his superstar team travelled to Sydney for our wedding and we still can't believe how happy we are with the results. The professionalism, the ease at what they do, the way they captured moments you don't even realise are happening... Just wow. Everything was done to perfection. If you're looking for a photographer who will capture authentic moments and create magic looking through the lens, this is your guy. Book him. Book him now! xx”

“Samuel Jacob was our wedding photographer in February 2018 in the Blue Mountains. We could not have asked for a better photographer! On the day he was like a fly on the wall, he captured the natural moments but also directed us to the positions that were just magical to capture. As I looked through the photos, tears came to my eyes because it was like reliving the best day of my life. Thank you so much Sam! YOU ARE THE BEST!”

The man behind the cam

Hello! I’m Sam aka Samuel Jacob. I am a wedding photographer based in the Newcastle, Sydney & Hunter Valley region of Australia. I also love travelling Australia wide photographing weddings & elopements.

I’m a life loving, ocean swimming, creative, slightly awkward, regularly laughing guy who loves people and his job passionately. My aim is to capture moments rich with real emotion, whether that be subtle or expressive. I am able to capture these shots by creating a comfortable & relaxed environment where everyone is comfortable to be themselves. Most of all, I want every couple to have stunning & tasteful photographs that they can look back on throughout their marriage. Oh, and I want you to look bloody good!

I especially love my work because I really value marriage. Marriage is a beautiful event where two human beings commit to loving the other no matter what. I think that is pretty incredible & very rewarding to be apart of. I am a newly married! My beautiful wife Anna & I made the unbreakable vows to other in March 2018 and I gotta tell ya.. Being married is the best!

How it all started…

I was studying at university, when I began to realise I was in the wrong area. Creativity & style was bursting out of me, and for the first time in my life, I had no outlet. I imagined in life, that I was supposed to have a career and then hobbies, or creative outlets on the side. Well, that wasn’t going to happen. I submitted my last assignment for the year, and I began a creative journey that lead me to where I am today. Making people happy by capturing the most beautiful day in their lives!

Let’s back up a bit.. I started taking photo’s totally for my own enjoyment. On holidays, of my girlfriend (now wife). Eventually people I knew started asking me if I would be their wedding photographer. I said no at least three times. Someones wedding was a scary place to practice. But when they would get their images back, I would think to myself, “I could have done that.. and I actually would have done a few things differently. I should have said yes!”. I decided it was time! I began photographing weddings at twenty years old, I fell in love & I haven’t looked back!

I can’t wait to be apart of your journey, and capture the beauty of your wedding day! | Sam
