Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about who we are! We are a husband (Landon) and wife (Amanda) team. We don’t have the background stories most photographers come with, our story is a little different. We met in 2004 when we both worked for the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. In four short months we were married and immediately became pregnant. We have been blessed with three amazing, beautiful, and happy children. For eight years I was a stay at home mother and Landon was a Correctional Officer. In August of 2011 we had a family tragedy when my father lost his battle with lung cancer. It was a very difficult time for us and we decided we wanted to find something to do with our time as a couple that would bring us joy and help ease some of the pain of loosing a loved one. One day Landon came up with the idea of photography. We had absolutely no background in it, however he had a strong feeling it was something we should try. In less than one year we had grown quite a bit and was approached about photographing a wedding. We were extremely nervous but knew we had found our calling, so we took the wedding on. After our first wedding we were hooked. The joy of watching two people start their future and the excitement of seeing how completely in love they were, made us fall in love ourselves. From June 2012 up until December of 2013 we have had the honor of photographing over 50 weddings and we are so excited for many more to come. We are a religious family and truly believe God has put us where we are today. Without him we would have never have found our calling. In August of 2013 Landon was able to resign from the Sheriff’s Office and take on the business full time. We are now full time wedding photographers and are so thankful to wake up each morning and be blessed enough to do what we love.

Now that you know our story we would love to hear yours! Please feel free to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!

God Bless,

Landon and Amanda Raulerson Read less

We loved having Amanda & Landon as our wedding photographers. From the first meeting, I could tell they are passionate about wedding photography and beautifully capturing every moment of a wedding day. They planned well for the day, and they were so organized, which was a huge help on the day of the wedding. We are in love with our pictures, and we are thankful for all they did to preserve those memories for us!

Amanda & Landon did a wonderful job capturing our big day along with another big moment. We couldn't be happier! James and I decided to have a 2 year engagement to make sure that we had plenty of time to plan & save. One of the first decisions I made was the photographer. I am completely OCD. I wanted to make sure I chose someone who was just as critical. As soon as I met Amanda, I knew I made the right choice. Her instructions & lists seemed like something I would have made. I liked the fact that she wanted to get together to meet before doing business. I feel like a wedding is an intimate occasion & you should feel comfortable with the person documenting this memorable day. The duo made me so comfortable that I had them document another special moment.. A year into our 2 year engagement we found that we were pregnant. we wanted to share this joyous moment in a unique way. We asked Amanda to do a baby announcement shoot and she was overwhelmed with happiness to be in on the surprise. The duo fit us in right away so we could announce our little one ASAP. They even went out of their way to buy props to use in the shoot. Everyone loved our announcement & now we have wonderful pics to remember it. A year later & we reach the actual planned day. Even after submitting our desires for pictures on paper, Amanda made sure to call before the wedding to iron out each & every detail. She gave her plans and asked us what our expectations of her & Landon were. On the big day, they showed up on time & ready to work. They did a great job on getting all the shots we desired & took some beautiful detailed shots of a lot of key objects in our wedding. We feel blessed to have met two wonderful photographers that truly care about their clients! Thank you Amanda & Landon for all you two have done! We will make sure to keep you on our list for our next big announcement. Don't worry! Not anytime soon!

Amanda and Landon are amazing photographers. We were beyond happy with their work and their professionalism. I literally gasped when I saw our sneak peek photos from them. I could not believe that these amazing pictures were of my husband and me! We had so much fun with them on both our engagement shoot and at our wedding. You spend a lot of time with your photographers on your wedding day, and they make you feel incredibly comfortable and at ease. They definitely care about you and want to make sure to give you the best possible images. You will not be disappointed if you hire them.

Wow...where do I begin? As a bride, one of the most important things to me were the photos. I researched numerous photographers and finally came across Amanda and Landon approximately a year before my wedding. When I talked to Amanda on the phone we connected instantly, and she listened patiently to all of my concerns. Our engagement pictures were totally and completely unique. She and Landon found a great location to match our theme and captured everything effortlessly. My husband and I just recently got married and it was a joy and comfort that we had amazing photographers to capture every important moment/detail of the day. Amanda and Landon genuinely care about your thoughts and want you to be nothing less than 100% satisfied with their services. I will continue to boast about them for years and years to come! We are so glad to have them participate in our wedding day.

Do yourself a favor and do not do business with the The Veil Wedding Photography, unless you would like to pay a premium deposit, only to be cancelled on over 5 months later.

As I booked my wedding photography contract with Amanda in May she advised she needs a sizable deposit early as this is her only source of income, and needed to secure the date. After thinking one of the most stressful pieces of planning the wedding was complete, 5 months later I receive a printed out copy of an email(not even signed) advising my contract was cancelled.

"A few days ago one of my brides emailed to touch base with us and once I pulled up her contract I realized that it was for the same date. We use an Apple calendar so that it's syncs with all of our devices. Apparently when we booked her, somehow her date didn't get updated in the calendar. Unfortunately because she was booked before your date we have to cancel our contract with you. I'm am so sorry for the mess up."

How do you not double check a date or know how to use a calendar app to confirm an appointment? What is a bride to do if she realized this 2 weeks before the big day?

Very unprofessional and a cause of exacerbated stress and difficulty trying to book with only a handful of months remaining. She offered to "help" by referring me to a friend who was MORE expensive! Egregiously poor business tact. I cannot stress enough what a poor experience overall this was. If I can save even 1 more bride the trouble of dealing with THE VEIL, then I consider that a moral victory of sorts. Her lack of empathy after canceling on me was the most galling part. Very dissatisfied.

I have said I am so sorry more times than I can count. Yes, you are correct we made a mistake (a computer error) and double booked (something I have fixed so it never happens again). As soon as I realized the mistake I not only SENT YOU YOUR ENTIRE DEPOSIT BACK, but I also found another great local photographer who is very similar in style. I did this because I wanted to help you find an amazing photographer, I did not want you to have to stress. You are correct in saying that the photographer cost more than I did, HOWEVER what you did not say is I OFFERED TO PAY THE EXTRA OUT OF MY OWN POCKET, because I did not feel you should have to pay for my mistake.
My brides mean the world to me. Most of them are more than clients, we have become friends. I take my job seriously and love each of my couples. You can read all the other reviews on this page and see this is not how I normally do business. I am human, I made a mistake, but I tried as hard as I could to fix this mistake.

Again one last time I will say sorry, and I pray your wedding day is amazing!
God Bless

As I was planning my wedding, I researched quite a few photographers. After speaking with 3 different photographers, I was finding it hard to really click with someone and feel comfortable with them capturing my big day. I finally found The Veil Photography and I knew they were the ones! Amanda and Landon truly care about their brides and grooms. They did everything they could to make sure we were happy and I couldn't thank them enough for being so accommodating. I would recommend to any and all brides looking for the perfect photographers!

It's 24 hours after our wedding and we couldn't wait to sing their praises. Amanda and Landon are FANTASTIC and we couldn't be happier with our choice! From their obvious personal interest and care in putting together exactly what you want, to going above and beyond what we could have even expected of them. We genuinely cannot wait to see how successful they continue to be in their business, as they are both wonderful people and fantastic photographers!

Amanda and her husband were fabulous! They met with us beforehand to get to know us and walked around the ceremony site (Castillo de San Marcos) to see what spots we liked and what we were looking for in our photos. They showed up very early and stayed until they captured everything we asked them to. I liked that throughout the night she would ask to borrow the rings, bouquet, etc because she had an idea or wanted to snap a certain pic with those items. Multiple guests commented to me how friendly and professional they both were. She had some preview pics up on her blog within a few days (which are beautiful!) And I cant wait for the rest of the pictures! It is obvious Amanda and Landon are passionate about what they do and project this enthusiasm into every picture they take. Definitely definitely definitely recommended!
