Photography by Samantha Perry


My Short Biography

Perry Imagery was founded in 2007 and has photographed seniors, weddings, newborns and other special life events. I pride myself in making my clients feel comfortable and a part of the creative experience. Each session is an opportunity to create something I've never done before. Along with these special moments, I love to travel and capture everyday moments on the streets, whether it be home in Seattle or across the country or world. Whenever I have the chance, I hop on a plane or into the car and go somewhere I've never gone before. Every day is a chance to capture a moment and preserve it in time forever. 

My name is Samantha Perry Tesch and I am the owner and photographer of Perry Imagery. From an early age, I was in love with photography, filling up disposable cameras with thousands of images and begging my mom to take me to the store to get them developed. My skills in photography were enhanced when I took my first photography class in high school. I learned the foundations of photography with a film camera and later switched over to a digital camera. I attended Augustana University and earned a bachelors degree in art and K-12 education, in 2012. While there, I spent a semester studying sculpting and painting in Florence, Italy. In 2012, I started teaching photography and drawing, at the high school level, in Sioux Falls, SD. I later went back to Augustana and earned a masters degree in education with an emphasis in technology, in 2014. I currently teach high school art in the Seattle Area. 

"Samantha did such a great job! She was very professional in meeting with us and the whole process of taking the photos! The day of the wedding she did a great job of getting the perfect shots but you didn't feel that she was intruding on the moment. I would recommend Samantha for any event that you need a photographer for!"

"She did a great job with my wedding photos! I would choose her all over again! I'm definitely thinking about using her for my son's photos as well. She was so nice and so professional! Samantha gave us great direction for our photos when we had no idea what we were doing! I strongly suggest her!"

"Samantha was so easy to work with! I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. My favorite images came from the moments that were not staged that she captured. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer on our wedding day. So many amazing memories were caught. I have recommended her to my very best friends and others in my wedding party raved about her. Our reception was running late and she definitely stayed over the amount of time as not to miss anything. Her affordable, amazing photography is so worth it!"
