The Photography Smiths bio picture
  • Hello!

    The Photography Smiths consist of husband/wife photographers Mikey and Samantha Smith.

    We think moments shouldn’t just be captured, they should be handcrafted. And while we’re not great with words, we believe in the power of images to tell our story, and if you’d like, they can tell yours too.

    Thank you for taking the time to stop by our blog. Here you can find some of our favorite work and personal adventures along the way.

    Available for travel worldwide :).

Tori {The Senior Model Experience, VA}

Whew, I know I have said it before but seriously – I have the most GORGEOUS senior girls!! They all make my job incredibly easy! Tori was no exception either – this girl completely rocked her session. She has the cutest smile and makes the best model face! To help my girls plan their sessions I send them a senior guide after booking and you can tell she did everything in it!

Thanks Tori for choosing me as your senior photographer! I hope you have an AMAZING senior year!!

Blake + Brittney {A Country Engagement Session, Fredericksburg VA}

Seriously LOVE these two!!! Brittney and Blake were so easy going and pretty much up for anything! The only thing they wanted was ‘something near the water and a country feel.’ With all the amazing locations we have up our sleeves those requirements were no problem! These two had so much chemistry it was unreal!

We include a complimentary engagement session with our wedding package. It’s sooo important to see how Samantha works with posing and just getting comfortable infront of the camera! So on your wedding day the photos are the easiest part!!

Enjoy our favorite photos from their session!!!

Can’t wait for this gorgeous couple’s wedding later this month!!

Since every blog post deserves gorgeous images to accompany it so we would love to share a few from a recent session that we had with an amazing friend and photographer  Trevor Dayley of Trevor Dayley Photography from Arizona. When we heard our friend Trevor was hosting a workshop in VA we knew 2 things that had to happen first we had to attend. Second we knew we had to reach out to see if he could do our new promo shots for The Photography Smiths.  We absolutely love the images he was able to capture for us and it was a great change to step in front of the camera. We can’t thank you enough Trevor for not only providing us great images for our new sites and social media but more importantly giving us these memories we can cherish forever.
