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

Amanda was probably the most responsive vendor we had the pleasure of working with. She answered all of my questions, gave us words of wisdom, and helped us make the wedding so much more special. She was a true asset. Photographs were just beautiful and back to us within a week.

From the very beginning of the wedding planning process we knew photography would be one of the most important elements of our day as years later these pictures would be our tangible evidence/memories of our wonderful day. This being said we searched long and hard for a photographer that could capture our style and we felt comfortable with. After sitting down and interviewing several, we met with Amanda and her husband and we knew right from that moment that she was perfect for our wedding. Not only is she very thorough and professional but also extremely talented and dedicated to her work. She was excellent to work with and captured our personalities perfectly in our engagement and wedding photos. We are extremely pleased with her work, not only the more posed shots but also the candid interactions she captured. Excellent at what she does and very creative style of shooting. We highly recommend her!! Thank you Amanda!

Amanda and her husband were INCREDIBLE!! They were easy to work with (I actually booked them from Nashville, so only met them the day of the wedding), professional, took amazing photos, and had them all edited and available online within 6 days of my wedding. My favorite part of working with them was that after the formal portraits, I almost never saw them! They were very unobtrusive, yet in looking through my photographs, there's nothing they missed! I don't know where they were hiding, but they did a fantastic job (I've been to several weddings where the photographer is in the middle of the aisle or the dance floor and telling couples to kiss again after cutting the cake and that was NOT what I wanted, so I was very pleased with the service I got!)

No one else could have captured the moment better than them. The photos were beautiful, and we had a link to them within just a few days. They were so personable and wonderful to work with. We could not have dreamed of a better fit for our photography needs.

We had Amanda and her husband Eric shooting for us all day, and the results were fantastic. When we were still choosing our photographer, they drove an hour to meet us halfway at a coffee shop, just to chat! Amanda responded to emails faster than any of our other vendors, even for small questions, and kept us on track with deadline reminders and a supremely helpful survey for organizing our thoughts and plans. They stayed flexible as we flip-flopped on details: less than two weeks in advance, we requested extended hours, and they said no problem! On the big day, Amanda was not just punctual but early to the ladies' getting-ready site where she fit right into the fun environment without being intrusive, while Eric headed straight to our reception venue to get setting pictures there before driving to our church. Down to earth and low maintenance, Amanda was a joy to work with. And to answer your most important question: she is dedicated to her art, so the photos are stunning and capture every feeling and moment from our wedding.
