We absolutely loved Amanda and were so thankful to have her be a part of our wedding team. She is the best to work with, so creative, and gets the most insanely beautiful shots. She did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos, and she'll be doing maternity photos (when the time comes)! She is so professional and makes the whole experience fun--even if it is freezing outside. We'd recommend her to anyone who is looking for a photographer. She is beyond talented and we consider ourselves lucky to have her in our lives!
Amanda is simply amazing! She is so much fun to work with, very professional, and she goes above and beyond to make her clients happy. We had three sneak peaks immediately after the wedding and they were georgeous! She is so artistic and thought of poses and places to take pictures that were georgeous! She is an awesome person and photographer and we are so happy that we found her and she could capture our special day so perfectly! Thank you so much Amanda! Love Kelli and Justin
Amanda is an incredible photographer! We look at our pictures almost daily and are always brought back to the special moments that Amanda was able to capture. It makes you wish Amanda could follow you around and catalog your life in photos! In addition to her amazing photog skills, she was a blast to work with. We honestly couldn't picture our wedding day without her there smiling and making all of our guests laugh. If you are reading reviews to decide on who you want to trust to shoot your wedding day...stop looking now. Amanda is the only choice!
Amanda was a bride's dream come true! She was professional, dependable, kind, and captured the emotion of the day so well. I would recommend her without hesitation to family, friends and strangers!
Amanda is a gifted photography with an artistic eye. She listens to your needs and finds the most beautiful settings to shoot in. She also is respectful of the venue. I am sad she is moving away from the area and would most definitely use her again
Amanda did the photography for our engagement shoot. She was able to fit us in to her busy schedule on only two weeks notice. Even though we arrived at the appointment slightly late, Amanda welcomed us with such a warm greeting. I instantly felt comfortable with Amanda, and the photo shoot was an absolute blast. The photos were ready for our viewing within a reasonable amount of time, and we had 92 absolutely stunning edited photos to use at our pleasure! My fiance and I are so happy with her work. If she was available on our actual wedding date, we would definitely have her photograph the wedding! (She does distance weddings, too!)
Amanda was beyond amazing to work with! She did my boudoir shoot as well, and those turned out better then I could have ever dreamed! Her pictures are flawless!
If all you want is photos – put a basket of disposable cameras at the entrance of the ceremony and reception. But if you want memories you can look back on and treasure for the rest of your life, hire Amanda. She works about an hour and a half out from where we live but after looking at countless galleries and talking to different photographers, I kept going back to Amanda. We set up a meeting and immediately fell in love with her warm personality, energy, and style.
The great thing about Amanda – aside from her photography – is her professionalism. Planning a wedding requires so much follow through, follow up, and baby-sitting. But with Amanda, we just had to give her the where, when, and why and then we could completely forget about her and not feel like we should keep tabs. If anything, she kept US on track and offered advice on the next step to take. She showed up ahead of schedule on our wedding day with organized lists of our 'must-have' shots and to-do lists, kept calm while us girls were over an hour late on hair and makeup (and even somehow got gorgeous shots out of it).
Her photographic style is very unique. She loves to play with lighting, shadows, and distance but she also does some great close-up portrait work. Our wedding was outdoors in 100 degree heat. Three hours in, everyone was oily and a little red; but you would never tell by looking at the photos. And nothing will stop her from getting “The Shot” even if she has to climb into a tree or crawl around in the grass. We have family across the country that couldn't make it to our wedding, but with her photography style, you can FEEL what the wedding felt like. The pictures tell a story and you see things you didn't even know happened. I could not have imagined my wedding without her. Even as the memories fade, I can look back on the photos she gave us and it will immediately take me back. Hiring Amanda was one of the best decisions we made while planning our big day.
Amanda does such unique and sophisticated work! She has such a great, fun spirit and is extremely easy to work with! We felt so comfortable with her, which is extremely important when choosing a photographer! Has a lot of new, fresh ideas! Would highly recommend!
Amanda = Artistic…Magnetic…Ambitious…Natural…Delightful…Accomplished!!! I am so thankful that after 10 years we were able to reconnect!! YOU made OUR day!! YOU were able to capture exactly who WE are …which is a VERY difficult thing to do when you aren’t around someone every single day!! The pictures YOU were able to capture were breathtaking…just breathtaking!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our BIG day so very memorable!!!! Oh and let me not forget YOUR timeliness in your turnaround…YOU my friend are tha BOMB!!!
My goodness FANTASTIC! That is all I can say. When we first met Amanda, I knew she was going to be perfect for our wedding. She's super personable, yet professional. She even offered us juice after our long drive from the coast! I had a very small family gathering in Yachats, OR. She was willing to work with me on price, as my husband and I had a VERY small budget due to getting married nearly a half year before expected. (Thank you USAF) Anyways, she was absolutely fantastic. Easy to get in touch with, and very honest when it came to timelines. She knew what she could manage and was not afraid to be honest when what I wanted wouldn't fit. My mom actually ended up adding an extra hour so we wouldn't be stressed and Amanda wasn't upset at all even though it occurred the day of. Our pictures are fabulous and I look forward to actually getting my prints of them soon to hang in our house all the way across the country!
Amanda flew to Jamaica for our destination wedding and took amazing photos. She made everyone in our group feel comfortable, worked with us to get the shots we wanted and bent over backwards to do all that we asked. She captured our wedding exactly the way that we wanted her too. Having a destination wedding, it was extremely important to us to have photos that we could show to all those who were unable to make the trip. After receiving the photos, it was everything that we could have wanted and more. It made both of us feel like we were right back on the sandy beaches of Jamaica. Amanda even jumped into the water to get the perfect shots. Honestly, I could not have asked for more, and I will always remember the way I felt on my wedding day, with images to cherish for a lifetime. She was even able to correct my sunburn lines, which was a difficult task in itself!! I highly recommend Amanda Marie Photography to anyone who wants beautiful and timeless wedding photos!
Amanda was EXTREMELY accommodating in our unique situation! As we grew up together, I was very interested in having her as my guest AND photographer. Amanda not only agreed and traveled all the way to Aspen, CO, she did all of the leg work to secure a back shooter from Denver, CO to assist her in the day. Amanda spearheaded the vision of our fall wedding with BEAUTIFUL outdoor shots and everything from intimate hugging shots to wild dancing shots! She delegated to our crazy group perfectly, scouted out shots around town that we never thought of, and was very flexible! I would highly recommend Amanda for a destination or Oregon wedding! She is the best!!!!
I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding photographer! Amanda really made the day run so smooth- she was so organized with times and shots that she wanted to get, she was able to wrangle up all the family members and keep them on schedule during our cocktail hour, she made me feel so comfortable on the big day by just jumping in with all the girls and really talking us through her vision for the different shots. We recently received our photos and I am thrilled with the results- the photos turned out beautifully. With these images as the main memory for your big day, I would absolutely recommend Amanda as your photographer!
The service that Amanda provides is exceptional. Our wedding was the second time we have hired Amanda (She also did amazing work with our engagement photos) and she is always a pleasure to work with. We appreciate that she flexible and open to suggestions while still being very focused and directive. My Husband is a guy who doesn't have much experience in front of a camera, Amanda was super easy-going and had a few helpful suggestions along the way. Her experience is exhibited in her finished product , and we were blown away by the quality of the photographs, books and special thumb drive! Thank you sooo much, Amanda!
Amanda was hands-down THE BEST wedding photographer we could’ve dreamed of!!! She captured the spirit and personality of our wedding so beautifully and created absolutely stunning photos of the happiest day of our lives.
My husband is a photographer, and because of that we had very high standards for our wedding photographer. We spent a lot of time finding the perfect one for an affordable price. Amanda hooked us on the spot. She is warm and personable, friendly, professional, and incredibly talented. On our wedding day, she showed up early and left late, made everyone laugh and feel at ease, and created the best and most long-lasting memories of our wedding: stunning photographs of the celebration of our love, shared with all of our favorite people in the world.
In the planning process, she was flexible, always willing to offer advice, quick to respond to questions, and so helpful to us in planning out our big day. She has a genuine interest and love for people, and really took the time to get to know us as a couple. This showed through in our wedding photos: they fit our style and personality perfectly!
Amanda went above and beyond anything we could’ve asked for in a photographer. She is the best deal in the Willamette Valley, bar none, and an incredibly talented, professional, and fun person to boot. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking for the best wedding photographer around.
