COVID-19 Wedding Salvation
Sam is an absolutely brilliant photographer but, beyond that, he's friendly, personable, professional, and made us feel totally at ease during both the planning stages and during our wedding itself.
We had originally booked Sam to do a six-hour shoot on our wedding which was scheduled to take place on Saturday 11th April 2020 but which, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, actually took place last month.
Sam was able to work with us on a very short notice basis to accommodate not only a change of schedule but a change of venue and a vastly reduced guest list (going from roughly 100 people to just 3 of us)!
Sam immediately set us at ease on our big day. He knows how to get the best out of his subjects and was really excited by the photographs he was taking. When we saw them we immediately saw why he was so happy. They are truly fantastic. The lighting, the colours, the composition are all wonderful. He really captured the love, the emotion, the fun of our wedding.
We cannot rate Sam highly enough. It was a real pleasure working with him. He is a true professional!

Sam was absolutely amazing beginning to end! Being in Texas trying to plan a LV wedding was tricky because there’s a lot of fake vendors on the internet. Sam’s flexibility and price range was definitely seeming too good to be true! But after talking with him and seeing his amazing work and great reviews, I knew he was the perfect fit for our big day! Communication throughout the planning process was a breeze. The day of he gave us a helpful posing tutorial to help us to look our best. His direction was on point and he captured not only the big moments but all the perfect candids. The amount of photos and all high quality is absolutely unbeatable especially for the affordable price! Me and my husband are truest blown away with our pictures and eternally grateful for his beautiful work. 10/10 recommend!!

Sam was fantastic! Better than fantastic. He was so easygoing, kind, professional, and really had a great personality that meshed well with ours. He was a total joy to have at our wedding. He gave us a brief rundown in the beginning on how to pose and always coached when needed (plus he was very patient; sometimes we needed extra coaching haha). He was very open to hearing our ideas and shared a lot of his expertise and knowledge with us. Our wedding was perfect in every way and he completed the whole day. He is truly a natural and it shows in his work.
Thank you so very much, Sam! From the bottom of our hearts, we appreciate all you did for us

Looking at our amazing photos, you would NEVER guess how reasonably priced Sam's services are. We are SOooooo glad to have found him, just blown away by the quality of the photos we received, considering such a short time frame for shooting (we chose the 2 hour "drive thru" package). Sam and his wife are charming and true professionals. Every photo was artfully and meticulously posed and composed. In just 2 hours, amazing photos at Venetian, in front of the Mirage waterfall, Flamingo, the Paris Eiffel Tower.... So many great pics, we felt like movie stars when we saw them, want to frame them all! Thank you so much Sam for giving us these wonderful photos to remember our special day.

My girlfriend and I had a great photo and video shoot with Sam! During the shoot Sam made us laugh a lot with his humor and although we thought we were going to look awkward, when we saw the results we were stunned. Best photography experience I've ever had by far. He's a top level photographer and charges half or less what other photographers do that don't know nearly as much as him. His assistant director Susan is really cool too! Overall, it was a great experience
Cassey & Evan from Las Vegas, Nevada
Sam was excellent! We worked with him for our engagement shoot and our wedding reception - and we STILL cannot get over how amazing our photographs for both are. He was very accommodating with our budget, ideas, timeline, and really took the time to get to know my husband and I....which allowed us to get some amazing photographs of our entire process that really reflect us as a couple. Cannot recommend Sam enough!
Sarah & Célestin from Paris, France
After the photo shoot we were expecting to have very good pictures. But now that we have the photos under the eyes, it's clearly beyond our expectations. They are amazing! We really love them and we wanted to thank you again for your professionalism and your photo editing quickness. We will recommend you without any hesitation!
We wish you an excellent carrier in Las Vegas, you're the best!
Andre & Annika from Gold Coast, Australia.
We would like to extend our sincere thanks for capturing the magic of our special day! You did such an amazing job and we are truly happy that you said yes in such a short notice to do a photo shoot at the Grand Canyon for our wedding. Special thanks for being so patient and great with us considering we just came of a long-haul flight from Australia and hadn’t slept much in the last 24 hours. You are such a pleasure to work with and have such a great nature, you truly cared and capitalised on every opportunity to create a great shoot. You guided and assisted us in professional manner in regards to our 'posture and posing’ too. Thank you once again, we wish you all the best in you future endeavours and we would happily recommend you to anyone planning a Vegas wedding!

What an amazing photographer! We had asked Sam Fawaz to perform photography services for our Vegas Wedding in December of 2015. He then spent the entire day with us from 12 pm till long after sunset shooting at dozens of locations all over Vegas - both interior and exterior. He found classic backgrounds to match the Renaissance theme of the wedding & my wedding dress - made the whole experience feel like a FAIRY TALE! I did indeed look like a princess in some shots - I was surprised because he brought out beauty in me I never thought I had!
Sam Fawaz gave us unbelievable angles - even laid down on the ground for some shots - especially to get the "Paris" Casino's Eiffel Tower. For other shots - in front of fountains and statues of Caesar’s Palace - he literally made me look like a statue - this speaks to the high adaptability and exquisite talent of this photographer; he makes the subject of the photograph echo the "paysage" of the background so precisely and with such subtlety - as to leave the observer speechless. He made all photographs available to our friends and family in an online gallery & also sent us two very cute Bride & Groom shaped USB’s via regular mail a week later containing double the copies of the work.
We definitely would recommend hiring this photographer for your event - be it a wedding, a bachelorette party, a business brochure, a prom, a family gathering, a friends' trip, regular modeling shot, advertisement/promo, nightclub outing, scenery compilation, classic memories photoshoot, sports team/local school/college competition memorabilia photography, or any other event in which you would like to have only the best of the best quality and service. We are very pleased with the results and all of our friends and family are enjoying the gorgeous photographs created by the hand of a True Master.

My husband and I were so fortunate to find Sam Fawaz Photography as we planned our quaint, last minute wedding in Nevada on 2/14/16. In the two weeks prior to our wedding (it can be done) we began planned our big day we didn’t think we’d be able to find is a good photographer on short notice. The wedding was 1 hour outside of the city, at a beautiful winery surrounded by mountains, just how we envisioned our wedding day. We saw great reviews of Sam Fawaz Photography & immediately contacted him. To our pleasant surprise, Sam emailed us back right away (with enthusiasm) wanting to help if he could. After a few emails back & forth he said he would make himself available for the afternoon of our ceremony. He understood what we needed & agreed to travel with us, as a group taking photos from the time we left our hotel in Las Vegas until we returned early evening. Sam went above & beyond our expectations as a photographer!
Sam Fawaz is a FANSTASTIC photographer, professional, attentive, friendly, open to ideas, fun & also taught us a lot as he was shooting photos. He has a great eye for seeing photo opportunities that ultimately made wonderful memories for us in the final product. He also has a shining personality which in turn made us feel completely comfortable on one of the most important days of our lives. He takes his job seriously but also showed us how much he loves what he does in turn being a true artist & an extremely talented photographer! He captured our wedding day like no other could & thanks to Sam we remember every moment of it. He is great to communicate with and processed our photos quickly so we had them soon after our return home.
We hope to connect with Sam again since our small group of family & friends at our wedding deemed Sam an honorary family member & friend! If we could give Sam 10 stars we would without hesitation! We highly recommend Sam as your wedding or special event photographer! We’re a fan of Sam Fawaz Photography all the way!

Only a few minutes into our conversation with Sam we knew we were going to have him as our photographer. He was great to talk to, and made me feel confident we were going to get beautiful work! When the day of our wedding came he was awesome! And he finish editing our pictures in less than a week and had them arrive a day after we got back from our honeymoon! They were so beautiful! The posed pictures were great but also loved all the candid shots he took. I never even knew he was there getting all those great shots until the pictures arrived.
The wedding photographer was definitely something I was nervous about because some times you hear these horrible reviews from people about dark pictures, or pictures that are still not finished six months later, but after having Sam I can't imagine him ever getting a bad review! I highly recommend him, and his prices at the moment are much better than the competition!
