Today we have the privilege and honor to work with two people who fell in love for their same sex marriage. I have met Chip previous to meeting him and Bill at the St. Cloud Wedding Expo last year. The best part is the love between these two individuals is incredible to see and to see their family grow. We went out and caught some great images of their family during their engagement session in St. Cloud, MN. See a small synopsis of their story below. On May 14, 2013, Governor Dayton signed the bill of legalizing same sex marriage for marriage licenses in the State of Minnesota. Bill and Chip, with Olivia and Landon, were on the stairs of the State Capitol when this took place and today, they will sign their own same sex marriage license. Today surround by friends and family from all around, these two will officially make their love memorable on paper. Here’s their story – In 2004, Bill and Chip met at a local restaurant downtown St Cloud where Bill was working and Chip was out for the night. Bill was the crazy stalker that kept the credit card receipt that Chip wrote his phone number on, and still has it today, though he never got the courage to call him. When ask about the proposal, these two have an amazing story. We put a lot of thought and preparation into adopting our children and decided to exchange rings as a symbol of commitment to our family. Chip surprised Bill with a formal request for marriage on his birthday in 2012, one month before Minnesota’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage was voted down. Bill and Chip legalized their relationship when they adopted Olivia, their daughter in 2009. An amazing dinner was had with 6 of their friends at Auberge du Soleil in Sonoma, California. Read more

High School Seniors!
It’s that time of year for high school senior pictures and we have a few open dates.
Here at Samplawski Photography, we do things a little bit different when it comes to our senior pictures.
All of our senior pictures are done outside. This gives us an opportunity to touch a few more locations to get different pictures rather than the same ol’, same ol’ background that a friend has. We are about being different, being creative and be out of the ordinary! We offer unlimited clothing changes, make up and hair appointments, awesome senior pictures with some neat effects and props, and of course, an experience that nobody else can get!
We offer a wide variety of products including senior albums which are very popular rather than just an 8×10! We have our unique premier metal prints that are popular because they are one of kind and it’s not the standard 8×10 pictures. We have many more product options that we work with our seniors on.
Currently we have a few open slots of Class of 2014 and 2015 studio reps! We don’t require you to work hard at all and it’s not sales pitch! It’s about sharing your experience with us here at Samplawski Photography and telling your friends all about your day! Anyone can be a senior rep and it’s just a small questionnaire to fill out. ASK US HOW!!
Ask us about our Senior Safari! What does it include… all day session and a LIMO with your friends! Ask us how to sign up for our Senior Safari!!
Call today to sign up for your senior portraits! 715-289-3773 or send us an email from our website… www.samplawskiphotography.com
It’s wedding day for two beautiful people today in St. Cloud, MN.
I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah for 4 years now in St. Cloud as a paramedic. We have many great memories together along with some fun talks in our 4 years. One night she introduced me to Molly and I was excited for them both. Molly is beautiful with a personality of one of a kind.
When she told me she was going to be getting married to Molly, I was very excited for the both of them. Then Sarah asked if we could meet with them to talk about their wedding and photography.
We met one evening at their house and we had a blast. A lot of great ideas shared and some questions for those who have never done it before. Read more
