Life is about filling yourself with love and joy. To surround yourself with these gifts and to have hope in them every day. Real life is what my work is based on. My business makes people connect by providing them with heartfelt sessions. I aim for your client experience to be memorable.

I believe in imagery with natural light, colors, and textures. I adore the beauty and artistry of fine art prints and handmade albums. I want to create an experience for my couples and families that will help them grow in love. To learn more about what I do read on.

I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer. Naturally drawn to love, I have an innate desire to capture life’s special and most intimate moments. On your wedding day I am there to document your greatest love story. From the anticipation of the first kiss to the late night celebration, each moment frozen in time.

Your lifestyle session will capture the essence of you and your loved one in a real and natural way. I believe in creating natural moments with little posing or obtrusive equipment, documenting real life, as it happens. Telling your story through photos. Life’s little moments.

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Image can be black and white and additional color enhancement is done complementary on any print orders and album orders.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I shoot primarily digital while using a mixture of film on occasion.
How many photographers do you work with?
Usually and preferably two (myself and my assistant).
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I always have a second shooter scheduled and would be able to take my place if necessary.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I have my main camera body and backup as well. I also have several lenses that I work with all day along with lighting for different situations. I always have extra charged batteries and memory cards.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes I alway have a backup camera body, extra lenses, charged batteries, memory cards, and lighting.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Hourly, however, my base price should cover the full day for most events.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes. I charge $400/hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I require that myself and my second shooter be served dinner. We work hard all day and typically take no breaks to rest or eat. Dinner is a slow time where we can eat and not miss important shots.

Travel is charged for any events outside the Philadelphia area. These are custom based on needs for airfare, mileage, and/or lodging.

Forever! However, I recommend duplicating the cd as soon as possible and also storing the digital files on an external hard drive or some sort of online backup since cds can go bad. I archive your images for one year from the event date.

Amy did a wonderful job! The pictures turned out beautifully and are a great way to remember our wedding day. Having been in quite a few weddings, I always felt that we were on a strict schedule based on pictures with other photographers. Amy managed our time well, got a ton of awesome and creative shots and and kept the wedding day our wedding day. We were so thankful to have her talent in Oklahoma!

The first thing you will notice about Amy's photos are their beauty and style... what you notice when you know the people in them is their personality and emotion being captured! Not only was I blown away (as well as friends and family members) with the photos, I whole-heartedly loved my time with Amy! She makes things to comfortable and fun! Definitely recommend her :)

Amy was a great photographer for our wedding. I was very happy i chose her. I loved my wedding pictures. I am very happy with them. She knew what she was doing, had everything under control, captured all moments. We were not the easiest couple to work with since we are very shy and feel silly, but Amy still got great shots and worked well with us in caturing all the right moments. I would/and will be recommending her to friends and family! She does great work!

Amy was amazing to work with and an incredibly talented photographer. After we received our engagement photos, I was so super excited to see what she would do with the wedding. She captured all of the moments that I had asked for and then some. My fiance was not really into the picture taking and Amy and her assistant put us both at ease and kept reminding us to relax and have fun. I was really worried about how our photos would turn out, after being forced to take most of them under the tent due to the rain, but they were lovely. I was also really looking for a photographer that I could have the rights to my photos and am so excited to start playing with them and putting my scrapbook together. Thank you so much for a fantastic job!

My husband and I are so happy with the service and products that Amy provided for us. The quality of her work was phenomenal. She met with us before hand and got a feel for our personalities and how to capture them on our wedding day, as well as our engagement pictures. She helped us become comfortable behind the camera and did a great job "corraling" everybody to get the formal pictures completed. Her prices are very reasonable and we received a great value for what we paid. I feel like we did not have to sacrifice quality for price and vice versa. I will definitely continue to use her for our photography in the future!
