"Our images came our better than we could have imagined"

"Amanda took the time to understand who we were as a couple"

On our wedding day, she kept us on track without feeling obtrusive or disruptive in any way. Her presence with us that day was seamless and natural. The images that she created for us are truly incredible. We'll treasure these photos for as long as we can look at them, and look forward to passing them onto our family as precious heirlooms of a very special love. Working with Amanda is a joy and a privilege and I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

"Working with Amanda felt like connecting with an old friend"

Amanda is intuitive, observant and a great communicator. She gave us subtle direction, that always felt natural, and captured the most important moments of pure emotion. I never thought I would love so many photos of myself before Amanda photographed my wedding and engagement. 

"She captured the best of us and we will cherish these photos forever"

our PROCESS

HOW IT WORKS

We will take to some time to talk and get to know each other over the phone. Once you've shared your wedding details, I will create a custom proposal for you to look over. 

01

booking

After you've chosen your collection, a contract and extra details will follow. Once your date is secured with a deposit, we can begin the fun stuff! 

02

PLANNING + CONSULTATIONS

As your big day approaches, I will be there to provide support and guidance, helping to ensure your wildest dreams will come true and that I know which things are most important to you about your day. (All of them, I know!)

03

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

This is one of my favorite times we will spend together. Engagement sessions can help you feel more comfortable in front of the camera, strengthen our communication and are an incredible heirloom to look back upon, years after your wedding. It's mostly about connecting with your beloved and celebrating this time in your lives. 

04

YOUR WEDDING

I will be there for each incredible moment of your day. Quietly blending into the background during sacred moments or adjusting your dress just before you walk down the aisle. You can be confident that each amazing moment of your day will be captured with artistry, skill and an ever present eye for detail. (I may even join your on the dancefloor latenight)   

05

Album design

You've invested your time, emotions (and money) on the most gorgeous day! Every detail, glimpse and wild dance move have been captured for you! It's time to design your hand bound, archival album. Together we will design a fully customized album to keep your pictures alive and tangible. (A small part of my soul dies when photos stay hidden on a hard drive)

Why do you shoot film?

Film provides a tangible artistry to an intangible moment. It's ability to capture gorgeous skin tones and stunning light is unparallel. I could go on forver about my love for film. Ultimately, it allows me to be present in each moment, right alongside you.  I will often shoot on a variety of film cameras and digital at each event, seamlessly integrating the best tool for that moment. 

How would you describe your style?

I approach each portrait session and wedding from a perspective of forever. I am a deep sentimentalist and this translates into my work as an incredible eye for detail. I love to document the candid in-between moments while also infusing an editorial quality to your images. I am drawn to nuance, tone, texture and evoking genuine emotion in each image. 

How much support do you offer in the planning process?

Honestly, as much or as little as you desire. I love guiding my clients as they formulate their details - from timelines to locations, right down to helping you select additional vendors. If you choose to work with a planner, we become a unified team and support you seamlessly, making the process as smooth as possible and dare I say....fun!

DO YOU TRAvel for weddings & portrait sessions??

Yes, absolutely! I'm an extensive traveler and love nothing more than being inspired by new landscapes and cultures.
 

What is your pricing?

Over the years, I've learned that every celebration is different and comes with its own set of unique needs. Because of this, every wedding, elopement, and portrait session is quoted on an individual basis.
That said, full service wedding collections begin at an investment of $6,700. Contact me and I can send you a more specific outline of your investment once I know more about your needs.

How many images will we get?

Typically you will receive 70-100 final images for coverage hour

What are turnaround times for images?

My work is focused on creating exquisite art and using the finest methods and quality products. Turnaround times for engagement and portrait sessions average 4 to 5 weeks. Turnaround times for wedding images is 8 weeks.

Do you work with a second shooter?

It really depend on the details of your day! Much of my best work has come from shooting solo. That said, there are times when a skillful second shooter will help your day run much smoother. I always bring someone in, if I feel it will benefit your day.

Do you have liability insurance?

Absolutely! I am insured through PPA.
