A LITTLE BIT OF MY STORY
Hello! My name is Sammy Kopecky, a portrait, family, and event photographer in the Kansas City and Manhattan area. I currently attend Kansas State University and am majoring in Marketing and pursuing my Master's of Business Administratio. I can't wait to get to know you better!
First, I'll tell you a little bit about my life outside of photography.
I am a daughter and a sister in a pretty close family of four: my parents, my younger sister and me.
Overall I’m a people person. I love being with people, around people, and getting to know people. Everyone has their own story and the more we get to know them is the more we grow ourselves. I love hanging out with my friends, most of whom were with me on the cross country team in high school. One of our favorite activities is to go run 7 miles together then gain back all the calories at the Sonic down the street.
I am a Catholic and proud of it! I am active at the St. Isidore's Center on K-State campus, and have shot for a lot of Catholic events like the one above. If you would like to talk more about it, contact me below.
I love photography, I think it’s beautiful that you can reveal the best version of someone that they may not even know exists. I’ve been grateful to have created a business from my passion, but at the root, I love what I do so it doesn’t even feel like work!
I’m obsessed with Ted-Talks because the idea that a person who has done extraordinary things can share them with the world is genius.
I love making connections and trying new things. I really try to be a well-rounded person, it gives me a sense of balance and curiosity.
WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO
I've been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. I started learning the works of a camera just by taking photos of my friends or the views from my travels, and have kept shooting from then to where I am today.
I started taking photos because I felt joy in the beauty of the people around me, and I had the ability to show that beauty to others. I believe photography can shape someone's perspective on the world.
