Owner and Jane-of-All-Trades
The biggest thrill Amanda gets in this line of work is showing people how fantastically beautiful and interesting they are. She did not come immediately to videography, but she has taken skills and experiences from each life milestone and used them to hone her artistic eye and my managerial acumen. She prides herself on her empathy and intuition for what the client wants and what wioo artistically look great. Knowing that she's providing a tangible memory for someone to share with their partner, perhaps their children or family years down the road, is an incredible legacy.
