I am Samantha Slayton, owner and photographer of SamSlay Photography. I am a natural light photographer with a unique artistic style and a love for candid images! I specialize in wedding and boudoir photography. When choosing a style for SamSlay Photography, I wanted something that reflected what I am all about. I would describe my style as moody, whimsical and rustic all rolled into one! Based in the small town of Trenton, Tennessee and serving worldwide. Destination weddings are a MUST so pack me in your suitcase and lets create memories! My personal goal is for you to look back at a moment and feel emotions behind your images.


“Samantha is amazing! She encourages you to see yourself as beautiful no matter what your shape or size. She can take a group of self-conscious women who only see fat rolls, imperfect breasts/ butts, and stretch marks and make them feel like models. It’s not just the angles or the lighting, it is the atmosphere of acceptance and encouragement to see your beauty and self-worth. It’s about an entire environment of women laughing, smiling, and just enjoying each others’ company. Samantha not only makes your photos look amazing, she makes you FEEL amazing! Her photos are beautiful, but her spirit is even better. I cannot recommend her enough!”

“I have used Samantha several times for pictures of my little one. I hate to admit it, but I am that mom who always stresses over pictures way more than I should and Sam never fails to put me at ease. She makes the whole process easy and painless for my family. Her prices are on point for my hard-earned money and her work is exceptional.”

“SamSlay Photography is nothing short of amazing! Samantha is so sweet and she works for the good of others! I’ve had three shoots with her so far and 2/3 of the shoots included my crazy golden doodles and she was nothing but patient. Even though I would get frustrated with the dogs, she would laugh and just kept making it fun. She is great at communicating with clients and making everything convenient for her clients. From the very first interest I showed in booking a session with her to the very last set of images I received and even after, she has given me exactly what every client deserves. I do not know how she gets editing done so fast and the images look as amazing as they do. My only regret is wishing I had used her more in the past. SamSlay is a photography rockstar! 10/10 would HIGHLY recommend!”
