Not only do I try to capture the most beautiful essential wedding photographs, but I work to encapsulate the emotion and feeling evoked by friends and family during those candid moments.

I believe that quality wedding photography should not break the bank. My prices are beyond competetive which allows me to offer brides with limited budgets stunning photographic memories without costing a fortune.

I never want to limit my work to just weddings. I am more than pleased to do any on location portrait sitting for one person or an entire party.

I encourage clients to include pets as a part of your portrait sittings. I will even come to your hospital room and take your newborns photos and create birth annoucements.

Please feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions. I love meeting with clients to establish a connection and ensure that you are more than pleased with the final result of my work.

Please visit my website at www.amberraederphotos.com or call (574) 361-2286 for pricing and package information. Read less

Amber Raeder has been nothing but unprofessional. We hired her to take our wedding photos six months ago and still have not received a satisfactory product. At the event itself, she was disinterested and inattentive. For example, my husband and I got married out in the woods and there was a beautiful clearing that we wanted to use to take some photos but Amber bluntly refused to walk to it, stating that her feet hurt. We did not do a receiving line, instead walking from table to table during dinner to greet our guests. Instead of following us during that time, Amber sat down at a table with guests and ate dinner. Finally, when it came time for us to sign our marriage license, someone had to be sent to find her to take a picture, she was at a table playing on her phone.

All of that only encompasses the way she acted during the event itself. After the event, I waited two months before finally reaching out to ask when our photos would be ready, despite the fact that her contract promises images within six weeks. When our pictures finally did arrive, they were grainy and well below the 300-600 dpi that is set as an industry standard for professional photos. I had a second photographer look at the images and she concurred that they should not be considered professional quality. However, Amber has been unwilling to make any changes or provide original files, leaving us with unclear and unnatural looking images.

Every single time I've tried to contact her in the past six months then she has taken at least a week (and more often two to three weeks) to respond. She does not answer phone calls and has dodged the half dozen times I have offered to drive to South Bend to meet her in person. I've had to threaten to sue her in order for her to respond to my emails. When she does respond, it is with excuses about personal hardships rather than any attempt to rectify the situation.

To be frank, Amber has been an absolute nightmare to work with. Look elsewhere.

Amber was fabulous to work with! Planning a wedding from 900 miles away was a challenge for me to work with vendors, but we were extremely blessed to have found Amber! She is amazingly talented and has an eye for all the little intimate moments that are often overlooked. She was by my side throughout my day capturing every moment. We appreciated her very personable, yet professional take charge attitude. Amber's rates are extremley competitive and we were relieved that we did not have to sacrifice amazingly beautiful pictures because of cost. We highly recommend Amber!

I got married on November 6, 2010 and Amber was my photographer. She was absolutely amazing! From the Salon in the morning, to the Church, to Notre Dame, to the Waterford for the reception, she was with us every step of the way. As promised, we received our DVD of photos the 2nd week of December. I cannot recommend her work highly enough. We love our photos and we enjoyed working with her. She is very talented and really knows how to capture those precious moments.

I cannot even begin to describe how fantastic Amber is. From the initial phone call, to the first sit-down chat and then to engagement pictures and our wedding, Amber was (and still is!) a dream to work with. Her photographs are top-notch, her professionalism can't be beat and the personal touch she provides will make anyone feel at ease. She has a way with people that I have not witnessed in other photogs. I am now proud to call her a friend as well as our family photographer. She nailed our vintage look, captured every moment and went above and beyond to ensure that we had everything we wanted captured taken care of. Her creativity alone is unparalleled in the area, but it's her ease behind the lens and ability to make everyone smile (even my incredibly stubborn and shy 4 year old!) that makes her priceless. I saw her pictures and had to meet with her, once I met her I had to have her spend my wedding day with us. So many others that I had talked to took great pictures, but they were lacking in the most important area: the ability to spend an entire day being a part of something so special for myself and my family and not appear to be an intruder. Amber floated in the background when necessary and took control of our huge wedding party and family when order was needed as well. Her pictures are so well-thought that when I look at them, I feel as though I'm right back in the moment, marrying the man of my dreams all over again. I still get excited looking at our engagement pictures too! She braved the rain for us (and gave us the umbrella!), laid on rocks and railroad tracks, kneeled in mud and climbed through a lot of foliage just to give us what we wanted: timeless pictures taken in a summer rain shower for our own personal twist on the e-session standards. Her pictures are art, nothing less. She could charge triple her rates and still not be compensated enough. Another point that speaks volumes. Amber is one of the most affordable photographers in the Michiana area, and yet she refuses to overcharge. A true testament to the type of person she is. She will be documenting our family as long as she can put up with our crazy, fun, non-traditional thoughts on family pictures (which I'm pretty sure will be a long time, as she has yet to tell us no!). A million thanks Amber, you are as much of a treasure as your photography is.

Amber has captured so many of my most favorite memories. She was at the hospital to capture my son as new as he could be. She than was who I called to capture the memories of my son for a first birthday shoot, along with some family photos. Of course she was also with me every moment of my wedding day, capturing all the memories I never want to forget! She is such a pleasure to work with, and over the year I have gotten to know her she has given our "business" relationship more of a friendship feeling. She is wonderful at editing, creative, and creates honest pictures. She has been nothing but timely and accommodating to me in regards to getting our picture CDs to me. She even popped by my work to drop our family portrait CD off! I fully intend on using Amber to photograph many more of our family's special moments. You cannot beat her prices, which include quality service accompanied by her wonderful personality. Also, there is not any other photographer I have met that will hand you ALL your edited pictures on a disk with the rights to print them as you choose. Most photographers charge a lot to hand over their rights to a picture, which only constricts you to only printing with them. You will not be disappointed if you choose Amber for your wedding day!! She will make you feel llike a very special bride and she will also make taking your wedding pictures effortless and such a blast!!

Amber went above and beyond what I expected. Shortly after booking with Amber we found out that my mother in law had stage IV cancer, Amber was very sensitive to the whole situation and always asked about her, at the wedding she was sure to take photos of my husband with his mother to capture this day for them. She worked so well with our very large bridal party and her sense of humor is awesome. We had 17 people stand up with us and our guys can get a little out of hand, she knew how to herd cats that day and had them all in the places they needed to be but yet captured the moments of them getting there as well. I plan on using Amber for every family affair we want documented big or small! Thanks so much!

When my husband and I were planning our wedding, we agreed right away that our wedding pictures were really important. We didn't want to end up regretting our decision to skimp on our pictures years down the road, but we were also afraid we wouldn't be able to afford our dream wedding pictures. Amber was a godsend. She gave us the opportunity to have what we dreamed for. Amber took traditional pictures that were breathtaking and unique pictures that I will cherish forever. Her eye for detail was astounding! She was so helpful and she went above and beyond what any other photographer would do. Amber knew all the names of the wedding party within minutes and she could even get the kids to behave and stand still!
