Everlasting Moments was first established by Sam over nine years ago back in 2007.
Originally a qualified graphic designer by trade, Sam first got involved in photography whilst covering it on his National Diploma course in Visual Design whilst at college as a teenager after leaving school. Following upon completion of the two year course, he then opted to pursue a career in graphic design, and managed to secure a job for numerous years at a leading European publishing company based in London.
It was here that Sam further developed his photographic skills having worked with and alongside many editorial photographers during that period. Naturally, design and photography go hand in hand - both being artistic mediums that require a creative eye as well as a firm technical knowledge.
Having been commissioned to photograph both family and friends weddings in the past, and receiving fantastic testimonies, he was firmly encouraged to pursue a potential career in wedding photography.
As a result Sam then enrolled and completed a specialist Wedding Photography course held by a licentiate of the British Institute of Professional Photographers and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. It was then that Everlasting Moments Photography was born... Sam now successfully runs Everlasting Moments in a full time capacity, photographing both Weddings and Portraits as his specialist areas.
He also runs his own Graphic Design company, SD Design.
Both companies are based in Carshalton, Surrey and sam extends his coverage to other local counties such as Kent, Sussex, Essex and London.
We will ensure that we capture the excitement, the emotions, the story and the small details from your magical day.
As a result we will provide you with a visual account that will live with you forever... Sam firmly believes in providing his clients with the pictures that 'they' want.
He always works to their brief, and is committed to capturing the images that they desire.
Sam is a very relaxed person, and gets on with everyone.
This is reflected in his client testimonials, and as he believes is also reflected in his photography - making the clients feel relaxed and totally comfortable around the photographer is paramount in achieving fantastic pictures.
Please check out our gallery samples to view the quality of our pictures, or read some of the fabulous reviews from our clients endorsing our reputation and services.
Sam uses the 21.1MP full-framed Canon 5D MkII camera for all of his work.
It is a favoured choice of many professional wedding and studio photographers as it offers superb high ISO performance in low lighting conditions.
We also always carry spare camera equipment in the event of technical malfunctions we have a secondary option to not disrupt us carrying out our work.
Something that is an absolute must when photographing weddings, you only get one opportunity to capture the day!
We only shoot in digital - we do NOT use film.
