Who We Are

We are Alex and Katie Sams, the husband and wife team of Red Boat Photography. Katie provides all consultation, planning and vision communication with couples. She also serves as Lead photographer on the wedding day. Katie has worked closely with many talented vendors in the wedding industry. She draws much of her inspiration and education from mentor, Josh Elliott of Josh Elliott Studios in Irvine, CA. The love of her life is Alex and baby Hutch, who keeps her busy and on-the-go!

Alex is available for day-of-wedding shooting, and has completed photography courses at Mars Hill University in North Carolina. Alex enjoys hiking and exploring new horizons. His most adventurous experience was a year in Afghanistan, serving our country as a combat engineer. We are so thankful he is on this side of the world and safe!


What We Do

At Red Boat Photography, we offer fine art wedding and portrait photography. Services are offered from the coasts of the Carolinas, to the mountains of Tennessee and beyond. Travel is something we love to do and are available wherever a wedding leads.

As a result of our combined talents, we are blessed to work together and offer seamless photography coverage at your wedding. Because we know each other instinctively, we are able to navigate your wedding day coverage as efficiently as possible.

It is an honor and large responsibility to capture memories of one of the most special days of your life. We do not take it lightly when working with each of our clients.

Striving to give you the best wedding experience is our goal. Equal to that goal is providing you with quality images that will last for generations to come.

We are also the preferred photographer at wedding venue, Spring House in Winston Salem.

Our Style & Approach

We like to keep imagery simple, minimally posed, and capture you candidly, as others see you. This translates to a comfortable and relaxed experience when working with us. Katie would be honored to chat with you and show how we can organically capture your day in a way that is unique to your story. With a price range of $1800-$3000+, we feel we have something to offer every budget.
