Samantha DeCoteau

It's the first inward breath you take when you witness the wondrous moment of your first kiss. It's all about gazing into the eyes of your child as s/he smiles blissfully back at you from each photograph. Each memory can be gone in a second or captured infinitely through the lens of the photographer.

With an expertise in photography and fashion retouching, Samantha's diverse experience ranges from weddings and engagements to portraits, fashion, event and architectural work. Her clients include Harvard University, The J Dilla Foundation, and State Street Financial among countless individuals and families.

As an editor and retoucher, Samantha's technical skills rival the best in the industry with a keen understanding of how to not lose the "realness" in an image. Her ability to work in a collaborative environment has made her a first class editor and photographer for art directors at Hayes Design Studios, Randi Baird Photographer, and more.

Samantha has a timeless sense of style and sophistication with a deep warmth and love of romance.  Based on Martha's Vineyard, she also works in the Boston area, throughout New England, and New York.  

When not photographing memories, you might find Samantha laying back with a good book on the beach, exploring consignment shops for unique vintage clothing, listening to the music of Little Dragon or Hiatus Kaiyote, or watching Doctor Who.
