we believe in marriage.
it's what we're all about.

Formerly called New Vintage Media, this business began with our marriage. And, as our family has grown, so too has our belief in what we do. Weddings - the start of a new adventure.

Our focus is on creating wedding photos, videos, same-day edits and prints that will (almost) stop time right where it is.

A few things you should know about us!
1.
John & Samantha have been a photo and video team since 2009. We like working together.
2. We were previously called "New Vintage Media" and led a team of photographers and cinematographers. It got really busy.
3. We since went minimalist, and decided to simplify everything in life.
4. That includes our business. Take a deep breath, keep it simple, slow down.
5. We have three young kids ages 5, 3 & 1. We homeschool and love it!
6. We believe that life is best lived in community.
7. We spent 1 month in 2017 living in the South of the USA in our minimalist trailer home. We plan to spend February & March 2018 doing the same!

We were thinking back to the photos we got to see in order to make our decision to choose Samantha and we hope our photos help others out in doing the same. March weddings shouldn't be overlooked, it's still a beautiful time of the year!"

We had John as our wedding photographer and could not have asked for anything more! He caught so many great moments on camera. He made us (me, husband and all our guests) feel completely at ease to the point where we barely noticed he was there (exactly what we wanted, for all those candid shots). However, we surely did take notice when we received our photos, which were bursting with artfulness and emotion. If you're looking for a photographer to capture a special time in your life, look no further than John and Samantha. You will not be disappointed!

We could not have picked a more perfect photographer to capture our special day. Sam did our wedding pictures this summer and they were simply stunning! She was always quick to respond, easy to adapt, super sweet and really personal. I felt extremely special having her capture our day! The photo-shoots were professional, while also candid and fun. I love love loved our pictures and would totally recommend these wonderful people!

Absolutely amazing to work with! My husband and I had the pleasure of having Sam as our photographer and she was nothing but amazing! She made us feel so comfortable, as we are both slightly camera shy, and she captured the day so beautifully! She did a wonderful job of capturing moments with our family members - so candid and so real! The best part - all the laughter!

"Immediately upon meeting John & Sam, we knew that these were people that we wanted involved in our very special day! Samantha was so helpful and responsive right up until (and after!) our wedding day, and John was an absolute pleasure to work with on our day. I kept telling him that I barely even realized that he was there (although he definitely was given our beautiful photos), which is a great thing on a day when so much is going on around you. This team is so talented and professional that we would, without hesitation, recommend them to anyone who wants to capture all of those beautiful moments! Thank you Samantha, John and Team. We wish you nothing but the best!!"

"Choosing John and Samantha for our wedding photography was the best decision we made! We are so thrilled with the way our photos turned out. John was so easy and fun to work with, and he made a point to photograph so many important moments and details that in the chaos of the day, I never would have thought of. We are so thankful for the way that our photos capture our day so effectively. In addition, we received our beautiful photos in such a timely manner - one month! - and the edits are absolutely amazing. We would highly recommend John and Samantha Butler to anyone, especially those who appreciate the vintage look - they are so personable, professional and genuine, and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of working with them!"
