Hey guys! My name is Christian Sampson. I'm twenty two years old, and am a portrait and wedding photographer based in northern Chicago.


Something that I want to say first is that I'm not just a photographer, I'm an artist. Whether it's styling a model or capturing a memory, I don't just take photographs, I create a work of art. I chase this idea every time I pick up my camera.


My drive is to be unique, different, and the absolute best that I can be for myself and my clients. This drive comes from YOU! My friends, family, and clients are the ones who make me better. I am so thankful for every one of you and the opportunities that I have to work with you.


On another note, I love dogs. I'm that person that if we are in public together and see a dog, I'll probably go pet it. Car dancing is a hobby of mine and I dance in my car every time I click my seatbelt (safety first). If I'm on my phone I'm probably Snapchatting or on YouTube looking up videos of the next hot new dance trend, bad American Idol auditions, or people falling. I love sour candy, Italian food, and blue Gatorade. I love traveling to new places, meeting new people, making new friends, and going on new adventures. 


Lastly, the people I love are what's most important to me. They are my life, they are my world, and I would do anything for them. They push me to be a better artist, a better person, and to ALWAYS chase my dreams. As Emma Stone said so perfectly in La La Land, "Here's to the fools who dream."  


So, welcome! Thank you for getting to know me a little bit! Whether you're graduating high school, building a portfolio for an agency, getting engaged, or getting married, I cannot WAIT to meet and work with you! You are my number one priority so let's make something awesome together.
