We would like to extend an invitation into our home. Come in, sit down, and enjoy our warm hospitality while discussing your wedding photography. Touch and sample our vision of past weddings and let us help you plan your special day.

We provide a whimsical blend of formal potraiture, photo journalism and sneaky long range photography to document your day. Traditionally we attract fun modern brides that are looking for a new fresh approach to photography.

Selecting your photographer is a very important decision. Take your time. Compare your options. Make an informed decision. Remember that you should have a really good feeling about the photographer as you will be spending the entire day with them.

We pride ourselves in not pressuring brides into signing a contract on the spot. Beware of any photographer who says "the special is only good today". You shouldn't believe it from a photographer anymore than you should from a used car saleman.

Come in and talk to us. You'll be glad you did. Read less

Leigh and Enrique were more than I could have dreamed of! They helped me with my vision and didn't fall into that cookie cutter photography. I wanted something new and fresh and that's exactly what I got. They were very fun and made me and my bridal party laugh and feel at ease. They were with me the whole night snapping away and had assistants to help so they had all the focus on us. I can't thank them enough for the beautiful memories and the weight they took off my shoulders the day of. The price was inititally too high for my budget and they worked with me to accomodate and it was well worth it! The pictures are FABULOUS!!

Leigh & Enrique were wonderful to work with. I can't believe how many photos to got. Leigh made me feel comfortable and beautiful the entire day. They were such a cute couple and seem to really enjoy what they do. Our friends have been so jealous of our album and photos. I would highly recommend Amantez.

I won a free engagement photo package from Amantez photography, and they were totally amazing! Although the customer-photographer interaction was a bit quirky at times, they ended up giving us all the digital photos! They were so nice to us for taking the pictures for free. The pictures turned out great as well. I would totally recommend them to anybody. They are royalty-free photography.

Leigh and Enrique are the names of the photographers. They are great! They had two assistants at our wedding that were also nice to work with. Leigh did our engagement session. It was cloudy and kind of rainy that day, but it only took 20 minutes and she got over 100 different shots! The pictures they take aren't your typical boring wedding pictures. They do some traditional ones, but the majority of them are fun and different (in a good way). Plus, they give you a CD with all of the pictures they took! Depending on which package you go with you may even get a couple of albums! I highly recommend Amantez!

They did a great job on our photographs for our engagement and wedding pictures. They include two photographers and at least two assistants with each wedding. Unfortunately the main photographer was ill, or something, and left in the middle of the reception, leaving her husband and assistants to take pictures for the rest of the night.

Amantez photography is a married couple--who coincidently share our wedding date. They were so fun and lively and easy to work with. They came with a team of 5 assistants who were so nice, professional, and easy to work with. Leigh worked around our schedule and our personal choices. She was great, so organized, and the pictures were great.

One down-side is that she listened to me too much. There were definitely some shots that I didn't think I wanted, and so we didn't do them. In the end, I kind of regret missing some key shots. Overall, she was wonderful.

The cost was high, but worth it.

I wish that I could rate responsiveness and professionalism with a negative number. The photographers arrived on time to my event and took a little better than mediocre photos, however, getting my photos has been an absolute nightmare. I am a pretty patient person but their lack of professionalism is unreal. It woukd be nice if they would even bother to return any of my phone calls or emails. Do not use their services if you ever plan on receiving your pictures!
