Amanda is the best
Not only is Amanda such an amazing wedding photographer. She is SO sweet, calm, and sincere. If you are feeling stressed on your big day she makes you feel calm. She thinks of all the possible options for photos so you don't have to do the thinking. If you are running late, don't worry she has a backup plan. She gets right in with the party yet you don't even realize she's there. It was SO hard to narrow down our pictures to use in our wedding album because her photos are just THAT good.Sent on 06/14/2020

10/10 we will use her over and over again!
Amanda is not just a photographer we hired, we feel we made a friend. My wedding was the third photography event we used Amanda for and I have already told all of my family and friends not to worry about hunting for a photographer. When planning a wedding, you are meeting with a lot of vendors, some for the same thing to get the best one, and some for other things. Some will be great and some will drive you up a wall. Not only did we not have to beg for a response, complain about a shoot or have any reservations, but Amanda went out of her way to coordinate with the other pieces of this big day to make sure we had nothing to worry about.Sent on 10/15/2019
We met with Amanda before the wedding at a Panera and she talked us through her packages and showed us these beautiful photo albums. The first event was our "Save the Date" Shoot. We met at National Harbor and she was taking us around to all these phenomenal locations. Next, on to Brooklyn, NY for the engagement shoot. That's right, we took her to Brooklyn where we got engaged and even then, it was as if she'd been there for years taking pictures. I was born in NY and she was taking me to spots I'd never been to capture spectacular photos of the New York City sunrise (and us).
Last but not least, the wedding. Naturally she stayed with the Bride but I had the pleasure of working with her assistant who was also very talented. At the reception there were a lot of intricate moving parts as it was a cultural wedding. During some of these moments, I looked to make sure that everything was captured. After looking around frantically to make sure these moments weren't missed, there's Amanda, on a chair, in the center of the dance floor snapping picture after picture.
There is a difference between successfully fulfilling a contract and being happy with photos and what Amanda offers. We have made a friend and will be using her over and over again. Even if we have to just throw parties for her to shoot. My wife and I would recommend Amanda to anyone not only looking for amazing photos that are meant to last a lifetime, but also looking for someone who cares about their work and making sure you're genuinely happy.

Amanda is the best!
We worked with Amanda for our wedding. She is so nice and chill, the exact vibe we were hoping for. Everyone felt comfortable throughout our wedding and nothing felt awkward or forced. Amanda was able to accommodate our budget and was super flexible about everything throughout the process. Our coordinator highlighted how amazing Amanda was to work with. She is the best!Sent on 01/15/2020

We have had the pleasure of working with Amanda on several weddings, and as nice as she is to work with, she's also just as talented! Her photos are so natural, yet artistic, with beautiful colors and amazing lighting. We look forward to celebrating many more weddings with her in the future!
