Sam’s Creation has been great to work with for my brother’s wedding this past summer. He was great with communication while taking many smiling photos of our guests and the couple! Sam’s very patient and careful with his work, always making sure the couple took the best poses for photos and had enough time to take them, in order for the day to be recorded and remembered. Overall, the photos turned out great and I’d would definitely recommend working with him for future events!

Additionally, Sam is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Kind, considerate, and accommodating of any your special requests.

We used Sameer Yagnik for our son’s engagement party, and we are so thrilled with the results! It was an informal outdoor event, a “meet and greet” and we wanted some classic posed photos and some fun photos. We had met him before at various events, and what drew us to him was how he was always so friendly and mixed so well with the guests…he knows how to become part of the event, and so guests are at ease, posing, joking with him, calling him over. The results were awesome!

Sameer did an amazing job as our wedding photographer back in late September. He was knowledgable about lighting, poses, and even making sure everyone looked there best in the photos, reminding you to put down your napkins or fix your scrunched up shirt. He was not only an amazing photographer but he was very personable. He made you feel great with every shot he took, plus he was very diligent in his work. He reminded us the more shots we take, the more we have to choose from in the end.

We had a wonderful experience with Sameer for our pre-wedding photoshoot, as well as wedding photography and videography. We appreciated that Sameer found a competent substitute for the pre-wedding photoshoot when he was unable to make it due to illness. For the wedding itself, Sameer and his crew were very accommodative of our needs, arriving extremely early on a Saturday to photograph the venue before our ceremony got started, giving us appropriate guidance on posing, and using voice instructions since I couldn’t see his gestures without my glasses. We loved the way he seamlessly captured all the important moments of our ceremony, and that we could complete the additional photos and videos as a couple on the same day right after our wedding ceremony. Additionally, we were impressed by Sameer’s quick turnaround time of just over a month to get back to us with our final wedding pictures and videos, as well as their quality.

We hired Sam to take pictures and help live stream a special birthday celebration at our home. The digital pics that Sam took were outstanding – both in terms of the framing and the high resolution quality (each picture file being 25-30+MB). Our family members as well as guests enjoyed interacting with Sameer and posing for the snaps as directed. Sameer was very personable, jovial and blended in nicely — some guests may have even thought he was a family member :-). The quality of the video live streaming was also terrific and we received several compliments from the remote attendees. Last, but not least, Sam’s rates were very reasonable and the turn-around time on the photos was very quick – we received the curated pics within a day or two of the event. Overall, we were very satisfied with Sameer’s services. We recommend him and his crew highly for photo/videography coverage at special occassions — we wouldn’t hesitate to engage him again in the future for similar needs!

Our wedding events photo and video experience with Creations by Sam was exceptional. Sameer and his partner were very professional and creative. All of our photographs and video turned out more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Sameer had great suggestions as to where we could take some photos and he worked with our schedule. It was almost surreal when we received our photo and video package. Sameer had captured the feelings and the beauty in every image. We were blessed with amazing surroundings and the lighting turned out great. Sameer’s expertise showed all of this in our photos and video. We highly recommend Creations by Sam for any of your photography and video needs. Sameer has a great personality and we are confident he would treat you as well as he treated us. Great job Sameer!!

We had my birthday party for over 150 guests at the Country Club and Sam was our photographer. He has worked before for us to capture our kid’s birthday parties but this was a formal event in a huge hall with difficult (at times dim) lighting. Sam did absolutely the best job. We were simply blown away by the moments he captured. Every picture is truly memorable. He was a real professional and was there on time. He kept taking pictures non-stop for over 5 hours and sent us over 500 spectacular images. He has also provided us with high-resolution pictures on a drive. Guests who have reviewed the pictures via his online site are very impressed and touched by his art. Thank you Sam and we plan to work with you for our future events! You are the best!!

Sameer did an awesome job capturing the precious moments at my daughter’s sweet sixteen. He took the time to take professional outdoor shots of the family before the actual event started in a formal event center, Corinthian Grand Hall. I didn’t expect that at all, and am definitely blown away by the moments he captured and the quality of each picture. He has done a great job capturing all the important moments during the event. While the lighting in the hall was dim due to the formality of the event, I am impressed by the quality of the pics he delivered. He also took the time to take tons of pics during dancing, and they memorialized all the fun we had that night!! Thank you, Sameer for being so amazing and creative in capturing the special day for my daughter!
creationsbysamPooh123 W.
Sameer, We thank you for all your great efforts and wonderful photographic work during my daughter’s sweet sixteen birthday celebration. All the photos and the video turned out to be extremely high quality. You and your team were very thoughtful in how to capture the complete event. It was very professional and well planned contributions led by you. We like the options and creativity you have included in your videos, especially the option to select for a quick review of the entire event. Not seen this before !! I will definitely recommend you to my friends and relatives and for any of my future events.

We have used Sameer Yagnik for many of our family occasions over the past 15 years. Everything from formal family portraits to 16 yr. old b-day parties to 40th anniversary celebrations. Sameer is professional, on time, knows how to adjust lighting (for the best shot!), easy to work with and always has a smile. He is patient and really wants the best outcome for his clients. I would definitely recommend Sameer for your next occasion, whatever it may be!

As an event planner, one of the main thing that I focus on is how professional a vendor is and whether he/she has the capability to work as a team. I got the opportunity to work with Sam for a mutual client on May 26th. Not only was Sam and his assistant a pleasure to work with, they were very professional and handled the entire event flawlessly. I look forward to working with him in the future.

We have recently watched my close friend’s wedding live streaming captured my Sam n team. All the events n guests, especially, have been captured very well. Usually in live streaming we obverse that only bride n groom and main occasion would be focused but this team did a great job in capturing all the guests n rotating the camera and made the streaming more interactive and interesting.

When we had special requests, he was accommodating and communicative with what to expect in terms of pricing etc. We would definitely recommend him to cover any special occasions.

We have known Sameer since past 25 years. He has made our three occasions memorable by capturing “Kodak moments” on his camera. Our son’s wedding in 2002, daughter’s wedding in 2005 and our Golden Anniversary five months ago. We like him for his quick witty actions to capture the right moments. His professional mannerisms adds extra stars to his personality. We will call him again and again for future occasions.
creationsbysamCharoo Dr
Sameer captured some of the best moments of our lives – our sons first birthday! He was on time and suggested good changes to decorations that eventually panned out really good for taking pictures! He gave us some of the best pictures we can frame and was super easy to work with. I’d hire him again for any event and highly recommend him.
creationsbysamRamya Akula
Sam is a pleasure to work with. We hired him for an Indian wedding and reception. Sam is very detailed, and knows the importance of various rituals and how to capture them. Due to his experience, we are now enjoying the memorable moments many times over, and share them with near and dear ones.

Sam has been such a pleasure to work with. He took his time to explain everything to my husband and I in detail to ensure he met our expectations. He also was sure that everyone looked their best as he took our photos with his keen attention to detail. Sam and his team did an excellent job of capturing the essence of our cultures beautifully all while making our wedding look just as dreamy as it felt! We are filled with so much joy whenever we look at the memories Sam and his team captured of us. Their professionalism is unmatched and we’re so happy we decided to go with Creations by Sam!

I have used Sam for two weddings in my family. I really like the work he does. We were very pleased with his photography he did last year at our daughter’s wedding. His work was professionally done and his pictures had great clarity . He pretty much covered the entire wedding reception very well. Recently, he made a beautiful album for us. The album showed that he covered the main aspects of the wedding as I asked him to do! He is well experienced in his work and has 30 years of experience behind him. I recommend him highly. He also has a very friendly and affable personality! Thank you Sam for your great photography.
