Photographer Samantha Melenka has a studio, but she mostly shoots on location––at venues that range from grassy fields to wedding receptions. For wedding shoots, she often collaborates with her husband, photographer James Melenka. Together, they capture grand tableaus such as the bride getting ready, or the uncle falling asleep. Through Samantha's other work, she captures the bond between families, a child's innocent grin, and the chemistry between newly engaged couples. Her photo booths, meanwhile, allow subjects to run their own shoots, controlling the booths' 18-megapixel cameras via touchscreen.
