We can't tell you that we shoot weddings because we're wedding obsessed. We don't swoon over the perfect flowers, a gorgeous dress, or a snappy bow tie. We are lighting obsessed. We love the perfect moment, gorgeous emotion, and snappy dance moves. We both have younger siblings, and we've come to love being the responsible ones. We like being the planner, the ones that takes care of the most important details. We want to ensure that everyone else only has to worry about having a good time. We like to the be the calm ones in a storm. This is why we love wedding photography. We love the pressure, the expectation, and the responsibility. We love the challenge of capturing every detail, and anticipating every important moment. Read less

Amanda and Eric were absolutely wonderful. We were planning an out-of-town wedding, and they took the time to get to know us beforehand through emails and phone calls. They were so attentive to what we wanted and worked to accommodate our vision of the wedding and the photography. When we finally met them in person on the big day, it was like meeting old friends! Amanda and Eric share and amazing eye for detail and for the little personal moments and humor you definitely want to remember about your wedding. Here are some awesome things about our experience:

o They work with you to plan out beforehand what kinds of - and who will be in - formal pictures. This was one of those things we wouldn't have though of, but that helped sooo much when it came to getting everyone together for photos.
o Their experience really shows: They are super-organized, and great about moving smoothly from one photography event to the next. They recommended things we hadn't though of, but weren't pushy about any of it.
o Their photograph the things you want, but without it being cliche. Maybe I'm just biased here, but the shots they did of our wedding rings were breathtaking and were unlike any I've ever seen before (and I have an expansive wedding board on Pinterest, haha!). There was even a shot of the reception through a window; everyone who sees it comments on how cool that shot is! You know these are creative folks!
o They're fast! I know this may not be the case every time, but we received a few edited pictures for preview the very same night.
o The online gallery is awesome. It's easy to navigate and is available online longer than any other photographers' galleries I've heard of. It can be password protected, too.
o The pictures are beautiful! Period.

If we had it all to do over again, we'd definitely go with Amanda and Eric. They are such genuine, wonderfully talented people! We were so fortunate to get to work with them!

Amanda and Eric were fantastic!!! Highly recommend!!! Now we know how they earned the reputation that we heard about when we looked for photographers for our daughter's New Year’s Eve wedding and reception. They were a great team who patiently kept the wedding party and our family focused so we could capture the formal photos we hoped for. Then they turned their trained (and creative) eyes and lenses toward the unplanned moments of the evening. Amanda and Eric provided us with intimate glimpses of the wedding and reception that we couldn’t possibly fully experience ourselves. They are awesome at nighttime photography. Love all of our photos. Our entire experience was positive, they helped to create wonderful memories that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.

I know everyone always says their photographers were the "best"...but seriously Amanda and Eric ARE the best!!! My husband and I planned the majority of our Virginia wedding from Houston, Texas. Planning meetings and booking vendors was difficult, but Amanda and Eric made the meetings and ultimately the decision of which photographer to go with so simple. So, you may be asking why you should book them for your wedding?...1. Husband and wife team. When looking for a photographer I knew I wanted two photographers. My husband didn't understand that, until he saw the pictures! When you book Amanda and Eric they are literally able to be in two places at once! She was with me while I finished getting ready, and Eric was with my husband. They were able to get so many angles of the ceremony and reception. Seriously, that alone should be enough for you to book! 2. Professionalism. I never felt like I was a business deal. Amanda and Eric are so welcoming and fun! Their comfort level with each other radiates to all around them and that always made me so comfortable to be with them. 3. Communication. I never had to wait more than 8 hours to hear back from them, and when you are a stressed out bride that is reassuring. (Our primary method of communication was email) 4. The gallery that is put together with all of the photos is AMAZING! The attention to detail in the pictures, the emotions captured, and the memories I will have forever because of Amanda and Eric is truly something I can not thank them enough for! Do not look any further for an amazing husband and wife team!

Amanda and Eric were absolutely wonderful to work with, the two of them have such a great dynamic together!

During our meetings, they were extremely patient, answered all our questions and designed a well-organized plan for the day of photos. On the day of the wedding, they were very efficient with getting the family and bridal party photos completed, which was great considering how many people they were working with at that point. We loved the bride and groom photos they took; Amanda and Eric just have so many ideas and can work/adapt to the environment they're in. We were also glad that they made every effort to capture every moment of our reception!

The turnaround time on the photos was remarkable as well! We received them just a few days after the wedding, and we (along with our friends and family) were extremely happy with how they turned out. Overall, Amanda and Eric were awesome, and if we had to do it all over again they would definitely be our first choice for photographers.

Amanda and Eric were professional, friendly, and positive from start to finish. They were very accessible throughout the 8 months we worked together- often responding to emails within a few hours. We did both engagement and wedding photos with them. I said from the beginning that I wanted a lot of candid shots (versus corny posed pics) and they did a fantastic job of catching genuine moments as well as making the posed pictures look natural and not awkward. They did a great job of being where they needed to be to take pictures during our ceremony and reception while blending in with the crowd. I never felt like there was a camera shoved in my face or interrupting the festivities. The editing Amanda and Eric did was AMAZING. I am sure lots of time and effort went into the edits, as the photos were gorgeous, however they did not look "edited" at all, like some vendors photos do. Our family and friends went on and on about how beautiful our pictures were for months following our wedding. Working with Amanda and Eric felt as relaxed as being with friends who happen to be top quality professionals. I have literally no complaints about working with them and highly recommend them to any and all couples!

As a wedding professional I have worked with Eric and Amanda at many events and had a pleasure of seeing their amazing work. So when our own daughter got engaged in March of 2014 we already knew who to ask for the photography. One year and a few month later Eric and Amanda went above and beyond our expectations - they captured every amazing moment, just the right lighting, and most important their personality fit right in. I believe a photographer should make you feel comfortable and let you do what come natural - that's the best pictures. So when we sit down and look at her wedding book it's like reliving that day from start to finish. We couldn't have been more pleased with their work.

I would highly recommend Amanda Beside Eric to my closest friends and family! Prior to the big day, we met with them once in person and once via Skype. They helped us make sure we had enough time for pictures built in to the timeline. Ahead of time, I really appreciated their professionalism, super quick response times and experience with dark ceremony locations. On the day of, we had so much fun! They helped me stay calm and loosen up prior to the first look and portraits. At the reception, they captured so many moments that I loved being a part of and that I didn't even know were happening with guests. Their behind-the-scenes approach and teamwork meant they didn't miss a thing without being the center of attention. The number of photos, their style and their quality still blows me away.

Amanda and Eric were so amazing to work with! We met them at a Bridal Show and they had to most adorable booth set up! I spent some time talking with Amanda and my husband spent time talking with Eric. After leaving the show we realized how awesome it was to have two photographers in one package! I ended up contacting them right away and we were able to set up a meeting in no time. Meeting with Amanda and Eric felt like spending time with old friends. They were so easy to talk to and joke around with. You could also tell how passionate they were about their work right off the bat. Amanda is very detail oriented and told us all about her checklists and questionnaires they have for clients and Eric was so eager to show us their previous work and ideas for our day. Nowadays you see so many photographers who are trying too hard to be artsy or who want to filter the photos like Instagram, but Amanda and Eric are a few of the good ones that are left! They are dedicated to developing their form and want to make sure all your needs are met every step of the way. Unfortunately our wedding day was freezing cold with arctic winds, so our formal photos had to happen fast... I remember at one point while we were walking from one photo spot to another I had to thank Amanda and Eric for being so good at their jobs! They were always so on top of everything! After the day was over I wasn't sure if we had gotten enough pictures though. I didn't have to wait very long... We got a sneak peek within DAYS!! I honestly couldn't believe the perfection that was the final product! Our formal pictures may have happened quickly, but Amanda and Eric somehow accomplished to photograph every single detail of our day! My friends and family told me my wedding photos are some of the best they've ever seen! I am so grateful to have these photos that I can cherish forever. THANK YOU Amanda and Eric!!!
