Documentary Wedding Photographer Samantha Cook

Sam Cook

Hello, I'm Samantha and welcome to my website. I have been a full-time professional photographer since 1991, based in Dorset, I have experience covering all types of weddings, events and celebrations, throughout the UK.

I specialise in Documentary Wedding photography, which can be best described as story telling through pictures. I love capturing reality, genuine emotions, those real moments that record the true essence of your day.

I have a relaxed photojournalistic approach, I follow my instincts, to provide you with an honest visual diary, of beautiful timeless images, that you and your family can treasure for the rest of your lives.

Coverage starts with the bridal preparations, through to the first dance.


I utterly love it. You really did an amazing job and I cannot thank you both enough. As I've explained before, Katy hates having her photo taken and in the years we've been together I have very few photos of us together so this is a real gem... Thanks Sam Andy & Katy

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are so so pleased with the wedding photos; chuffed to bits (and a bit emotional). AMAZING Jenny & Paul 

Thanks so much, the photos are superb and you have really managed to capture the whole feeling of the day. Steve and I are both really pleased. I can't wait to start showing them off to people, they really are lovely photos. Paula & Stephen

Thank you so much for the wonderful photos that you took at our wedding. We were really worried that the torrential rain would have spoilt our photos -  but they were fantastic! Thank you for your determination to capture our special day and for carrying on even though you were both soaked! Melissa and Stuart

Thank you so much for the photos we are really pleased with all of them. You've done an excellent job in capturing our day and I know we will both love looking at them for the rest of our lives. Kelly & Steve

A huge thank you for the beautiful pictures, they really are wonderful.  We can't thank you enough for the lovely pictures and your very relaxed service on the day. Hayley And Chris
