I loved working with Andrea! Every step of the process was easy going and better than I imagined. She kept in communication with me and my vision the whole time leading up to my wedding day. And nailed the vibes I was going for with the shot list. We went from the beach to the mountains with every single weather condition involved... and it was perfect!!! I was looking for the perfect adventure photographer and I’m so grateful I found Abd photography.Sent on 03/25/2021

Beautiful Engagement shoot
Andrea did an awesome job of capturing the love shared between my fiance and myself. She was able to capture city and nature in out photos. She is very friendly and professional. I would definitely do a shoot with Andrea again.Sent on 03/19/2021

My first taste of officiating weddings happened during a term as a local elected official. It was certainly fun, but I sensed that many of the people coming to Borough Hall were not marrying because of love. I imagined how much MORE fun it would be officiating for people actually in love. I had to become a minister!
I have performed weddings on the beach barefoot, at a golf clubhouse in Converse high top sneakers, at a beach house in Atlantic City and a wedding venue (wearing traditional shoes and clothes), on a rock cropping next to a lake at Bear Mountain State Park at the start of COVID wearing bear socks, at people’s houses and in a backyard wearing jeans. I even performed a wedding for a couple that I met for the first time the day of their ceremony! (The mother of the bride described them so well I felt that I had known them for years.)
It’s your day and it should be done your way. Ceremonies are personalized (and approved) by you before the wedding day…no surprises. I am also a certified Reiki Master, Animal Communicator, soon to be published author and enjoy hiking, kayaking, traveling and the outdoors. Have a crazy idea for a wedding and need a minister that’s game too?

She currently holds the position as the music teacher in the Greenwich-Stow Creek Partnership Schools. In addition to her full-time position, Amber continues to perform actively as a professional harpist in the South Jersey and Greater Philadelphia Area and has performed with the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra, and Rowan University.

One of her greatest desires is to make a positive impact in the lives of those around her. Her transition into education comes as an extension of this goal - in helping young students grow and develop through music.
While earning a certificate in Arts Leadership alongside a Master of Music degree, Amber developed the tools needed create her dream career. The Arts Leadership Program (ALP) is reserved for select Eastman students with strong academic records, previous leadership experience, and an awareness of the challenges and opportunities facing professional musicians and artists.

In 2017, Amber graduated from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, Summa cum laude, where she studied with Ina Zdorovetchi.
