I found my love of photography in high school. I discovered the amazing feeling of capturing a memory on film. I love the challenge of having that image tell the story of a thousand other moments. Photographing proposals and weddings is such a privilege to be able to immortalize such love, and I will work hard to make sure your shots are as unique and beautiful as you.

Over 20 years of photography experience and schooling will ensure that you get the most amazing photographs of your most amazing day. From developing my own digital editing, to artistic expression, my knowledge encompasses every aspect of photography.

We are proud to announce that we have won the WeddingWire's Bride Choice Award for wedding photography in San Diego, CA for 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2009!!


It is our intention to create a photo story of your wedding day, as well as capture images that are artist, modern, and fun. While it is important for us to create artistic photographs on your wedding day, we know how important it is to photograph the special moments that are significant to you. It is about the photographs that bring you back to your special day; such as the first time you see each other at the ceremony, the first kiss, first dance, and the special moments with family and friends. Capturing these moments of love and happiness is a special privilege and honor. To be witness of a day full of joy, laughter, family, and love is an unbelievable opportunity. Getting amazing wedding photos is about more than just showing up with a camera on your wedding day. We offer you our experience to help schedule your day so that everything runs flawlessly and you get the images you want to share the story of your wedding day.

I just received back the pictures from our wedding and loved them! I think Amanda did a great job on her shots. Only things I wish would be different were more shots of the groomsmen (the second photographer didn't take as many) and more shots of wedding guests/us with guests. For such a small wedding, I would have hoped that more of our guests would be captured. And sometimes days would go by without a response to an email with a single question......

Amanda did a phenomenal job on our engagement session. I had explained that I wanted a quick shoot and had already pinned my ideas to pinterest. I was able to show her what ideas I had and she also incorporated her own. Our session was fun, stress free, and we ended up with so many photos that we considered our "favorites". She was willing to hear what we wanted and executed the ideas well. Very excited. Very happy! Definitely recommend!

Amanda is extraordinary. When we first met with her we knew instantly that she was THE ONE! She is so full of energy and has so many beautiful and playful ideas for photo sessions. Amanda is flexible, determined, outgoing, personable, and most of all so creative! She even took time to view my Pinterest page to see what I had in mind for my photo shoot! My fiance and I had a memorable engagement session all because of her, and we are happy to say that she will be shooting again for us on our wedding day. Thank you for everything you have done thus far! Cheers!

My husband and I used Amanda's services for our engagement and because we were so happy with her work we decided to hire her and fly her out for our destination wedding in Riviera Maya Mexico. Looking back, having her there was one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding. Not only was she very efficient with the time she had with us and our wedding party but she was so creative and had some really amazing ideas that came out beautiful! The pictures from our wedding were stunning and I couldn't imagine anyone else could have done a better job at capturing the most special moments of our lives. I would recommend Amanda to anyone needing any type of photos done!

Amanda is hands down the GREATEST photographer! We found an offer for engagement pictures on one of the many websites I came across while wedding planning and we figured we'd make a weekend getaway out of it! We're from the L.A. area and drove out to San Diego to take advantage of the great deal. From the second I spoke to Amanda on the phone to arrange photo locations, to the hundreds of shots we took, she was so warm and made our experience so fun and easy! She was so open to using all the poses we had in mind as well as incorporating her creativity own! Unfortunately we had already booked our wedding day photographer prior to meeting Amanda, otherwise Will You Marry Me Photography would have taken or wedding day pictures for sure! My husband and I agreed that from here on out, any event we have, Amanda will be the first person we call! You will not be disappointed!

We had our engagement photos taken by Amanda and we loved how they turned out as well as how fun the shoot was so when it was time for our wedding, we definitely wanted the same experience and decided to go with her again.
She's great about making you comfortable in front of the camera which was awesome for us non-photogenic people. She's very professional and fun. She has great ideas for location and poses. I'd definitely recommend going with her.

Amanda was so professional and got some amazing shots. She did our engagement and wedding photos and listened to everything we wanted as well as improvising some things of her own. We had hundreds of pictures to choose from and we were very happy with the outcome.

This was for Brian and Shadele's engagement this past Monday. The setting was the private beach below our house, a private chef making dinner, a walk from the dinner to the site Brian proposed at Sunset. This was a very difficult event to coordinate that went flawlessly creating many memories. Amanda was on time, dressed like a ninja to be hidden, and somehow captured the entire thing undetected. The pictures I have seen so far are unbelievable and I cant wait for the wedding. Great job I was thrilled to be a part of it. You cant replace these moments and if you don't have the right person behind the camera they are lost forever. If you need a photographer call her without hesitation.

I happened upon a deal from Amanda (via the Knot) for an engagement session after having booked some other complete douche who was also listed on the site (he's lucky I don't even remember his name). I called her up, told her about the horrible experience I'd had in booking the other photographer and she listened patiently and made me feel at ease immediately. I had a good feeling about her from the start. We quickly chose a date, time, and location for our engagement shoot and soon my (then) fiance and I were on our way to San Diego! To make a long story short, she was more than I could have even asked for in a photographer. It was an engagment session. It was an experience! By the time we got to the last session of the day and my (now) husband and I found ourselves clinging to each other in the middle the ocean (note: I'm deathly afraid of open water) with my hair soaked, my makeup running, and my leg bleeding after being dashed upon a rock by a big wave YET still smiling and having the time of our lives, we knew we'd allow no othern photographer to set foot at our wedding.

Fast forward to the wedding. 1 word. EPIC. We ended up eloping in Vegas before hopping a plane to Paris for 2 weeks so our wedding date essentially ended up being a big party. And Amanda and her assistant know how to party! As soon as the DJ dropped the first beat and everyone rushed the floor, I instictively searched for Amanda because I didn't want her to miss that moment. But silly me. I turned around and who was already in the middle of the crowd standing on a chair getting the perfect aerial shot? Ms. Darosett. By the end of the night, she and her assistant had been spied in so many different locations putting themselves in all kinds of compromising positions to get the perfect shot that several guests HAD to know who this crazy woman was! She really is a sight to see: a little woman with so much energy and crazy good visions. I'll take it!
