Meet Sam and Steve


Samantha (Sam) and Steve Vaughan are professional wedding photographers, based in Bicester, Oxfordshire. We started photographing weddings in 2008, and over the years we have developed our style into an observational, documentary approach. As well of course being passionate about great photography, we love being around people and capturing all aspects of human emotion; happiness, joy, sadness, laughter. We always work together as a two photographer team. Previously known as SSVPhotography, we are widely connected in the Oxfordshire wedding networks, and also all things Fuji. When not photographing, Sam and Steve are active members of Banbury Operatic Society.

Sam has the eye of the artist, and is an accomplished pencil sketcher of pets. She spots the special moment; the reflection in the hub cap, the tear in the brides father eye, the kids playing quietly. She loves her two cocker spaniels and her golden Labrador, walking in the country and good red wine. She also loves Strictly, Masterchef and Bake Off. She hates heavy metal music.
