About Amber Rhodes-Lapoint

Hey! I’m Amber. I am a Memphis based Wedding and Boudoir Photographer, however I am available for travel anywhere. Passport is ready and willing! ;-)

I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Dan and we have 3 fur children….no actual human offspring…yet!

Truth: I am slightly obsessed will all things girly and anything that sparkles. Ok, well, maybe it’s not slightly, more like severely. I think it’s because I have to balance the “nerd” out with “girly”. Funny animal videos can hold my attention for entirely too long, I secretly wish I could glitter bomb random mean people, I read a lot, and I have a lot of other really random obsessions (like…harry potter, horror movies, disney, broadway musicals…oh, and Star Trek or any type of Sci Fi) and I watch Buffy or Star Trek TNG reruns…..almost EVERYDAY.

I’m a petite (5’4.5” – that half inch makes a difference!) sized ball of eclecticism. Shooting weddings and seeing people on their happiest day is my happy place. The excitement, anticipation and emotions are what drive me to be at my best to capture and tell YOUR story. Shooting boudoir sessions is in direct competition for my happy place though. I love showing you how beautiful you already are through my photos. No matter how old you are…This. Right here and now. Is the best time in your life to feel beautiful, empowered and glamorous. And hold on to that feeling. Always!

Soooooo now I want to hear about YOU and your day and how I can make you feel like you on your best day. Drop me a line and let’s chat. Photographs have the unique ability to make a memory tangible. They encapsulate the details of a personal history which time can erase from reminiscence. How many of life’s moments would be lost, were it not for that photograph that froze that instant in time?

About Amber Rhodes-Lapoint Photography

Life moves. Always. Sometimes a little too fast. It’s my job to capture just a few glimpses of it for you so that 5, 12, 25 years from now you can remember every detail of your wedding day. And you can smile. (…or if you’re anything like me, cry!)

I wish I could put into words the beauty of life and love, but I can’t. So I take a picture.

Amber Rhodes-Lapoint Photography is a Boutique Wedding & Boudoir studio. We offer a custom experience for each client. We are not a box-store picture place or the dollar store. If you want one-of-a-kind beautifully lit, evocative images that enhance you, then that’s what we love to do. We enjoy styled shoots quite a bit, and don’t mind laying on the ground to get “that shot”.

We would love to hear from you, whether you have a question about our wedding collections or our boudoir packages – we can’t wait for the chance to make you feel glamorous! Read less

Amber & I used to go to high school together, so that is how I know her. However, her prices were more that I could afford, which is why I didn't consider her any further. When I recieved a facebook message from her, I was curious to know what it was about. She provided me with an amazing deal, because my wedding was something that privided her with something she needed to her portfolio & so far, the pictures have turned out perfect. She's shot an engagement shoot, a bridal shoot, & she was there the entire day of my wedding. I'm very pleased with the outcome & I highly recommend her.

Edit: So, I feel that I have to edit this review. I have left the original review so that everyone can see it. I still feel that our pictures were beautiful. The issue is that now, over a year after the wedding, we still don't have the photo album and the pictures that were apart of our contract.

I have contacted Amber many times and I am told that she is getting ready to order them. Lately, she had just stopped returning my emails. I am afraid that it may come to a lawsuit which I really hope does not happen. I still stand by the original review with regards to the photos but this current incident has soured the whole experience.

Original Review:
I love Amber. I am still in shock that our pictures turned out so beautifully. We had Amber do the engagement pictures and also the wedding photos. She was so incredibly quick to respond to emails and was willing to answer any questions I had. She worked with us to get all the pictures that we wanted. Plus, she worked with us to help create the quirky pictures that suited our personality. I would highly recommend her!

I used Amber for some "Trash the Dress" photos. Amber was a doll to work with. She really made me feel beautiful and comfortable taking the photos. Her photos are absolutely amazing, and I was thrilled to get some photos in my dress that were above and beyond what my wedding photographer had been able to do. I was so happy with Amber that I booked her again a year later for some late one-year anniversary shots. Again, I couldn't have been happier with her work. We used the photos for our Christmas cards, which she designed as part of the package, and got so many compliments on them. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again!

Amber was awesome the whole time she was with us, from the engagement pictures to the wedding, she was easy to get in touch with, easy to work with, and great at capturing the true personalities of the subjects of her photos. She even helped me calm down my pre-wedding jitters! The pictures were exactly what I had described to her that I wanted, and I couldn't be happier with the results!! I highly reccommend her, especailly for laid back couples!
