Hello and welcome to The Foto Company! My name is Sami and I own, operate and pour my heart and soul into everything that makes The Foto Company so successful. I focus heavily on providing outstanding customer service, exceptional quality in photos and prints and creating lasting relationships with everyone I meet.
If you couldn’t tell already, we really do love everything that has to do with weddings, engagements, and proposals. How could you resist love and happiness, right? Aside from all the lovey-dovey stuff, we also enjoy capturing life’s other important moments, including senior photos, family portraits, modeling images, sporting events, company and corporate events, birthdays and much more.
As a company and in my own personal life, I have always believed in quality over quantity and that can speak volumes all by itself. By having a creative mind and a sharp pair of trained eyes, I can focus more on the details you can expect when looking for a professional photo service that you want. My door is always open, my phone is always on and I check my emails often. So don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions, want to book your wedding day or a photo session with us or if you just want to tell us how much you love our work.
Thank you for stopping by and we look forward to meeting you.
Owner, Photographer, Creator
I got into the world of photography around my freshman year of high school. I would ask my mom to borrow her Canon point and shoot 35mm film camera every chance I had a reason to use it and luckily she let me (thanks mom). What did I like about taking photos then? I have to say that I really enjoyed taking photos of my friends, of bands at concerts I went to and at all the high school functions. I learned growing up by looking at family photo albums that capturing memories was important to do. It also turned out to be fun.
So after some time away from home, two college degrees and many amazing stories later, I found myself with a DSLR camera in my hands for the very first time. I quickly fell in love with everything about it. How fast it took photos, the way people seemed to pop out of the image and most of all, the crystal clear quality of the images that I could see on the back of the camera. I was instantly hooked!
It didn’t take much time but requests from friends and family starting coming in and my hobby quickly turned into a business. I didn’t know where it would take me or how many people I’d meet but now after 9+ years and many clients later, I am still going strong as a photographer and continue to only get better at my craft.
