About

Amanda Hein started her own photography company in 2005 and since then has documented many special moments. A graduate of Drake University's prestigious journalism school and a former staffer at Better Homes and Gardens magazine, Amanda brings an editorial eye to her work and a relaxed, natural look to her images, resulting in a unique visual style that tells the story of your special day.

Amanda's work has been featured in Chicago Social Bride magazine, on BetterHomesAndGardens.com and on the walls of Chicagoland galleries. As an independent photographer, she enjoys working with her clients to create packages tailored to their individual needs and images that capture the details, mood, emotion and love that makes each of them special.

Finding beauty in the small things as well as the obvious is what Amanda loves best. She finds new and interesting ways to feature the details that might otherwise go unnoticed - from the tears in dad's eye as he walks you down the aisle, to the smile on your face when your fiancé makes a joke, to the light beaming through the windows as you say "I do."

A newlywed herself, Amanda understands the importance of finding a photographer you trust. For samples of her work, visit www.AmandaHein.com or her blog, http://blog.AmandaHein.com. Consultations are available by appointment and can be scheduled by e-mail (amanda@amandahein.com) or phone (312-480-9949).

    Amanda was absolutely amazing. She accommodated every request we sent her way, including a confetti toss with our bridal party and our wish-list locations at our venue. She had fantastic suggestions that were incredibly helpful - how to set up a 'first look' best, how to get the family portraits done in no time. Amanda was so kind and friendly and made us feel so comfortable. Her work is amazing and she really is the best. We were so lucky she was available to photograph our wedding. We cannot recommend her highly enough!!!

    We were so lucky to have connected with Amanda at the end of a long, challenging process trying to find the right wedding photographer. What we learned from our experience is that while there are many talented photographers out there with impressive portfolios and blogs based on one-off "wow" shots from various weddings, it is much harder to find someone so consistent in her talent as Amanda -- who effortlessly fills gallery after gallery of entire weddings (including ours!) with beautiful, natural, meaningful photos that truly capture the day for her couples. Another quality that sets Amanda apart from the pack is that because she's such a skilled, versatile photographer, she will really listen to you and what you want out of your wedding photography, and will adapt her style to your needs, not the other way around. And while photographer personalities may not seem all that important early on in the wedding planning process, someone with an easy, efficient and flexible working style like Amanda is guaranteed to be a godsend come the actual wedding. We are so grateful to Amanda (as well as to our incredible coordinator who found her for us!) and would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

    Amanda is wonderful! I cannot recommend her more highly. She made my husband and I feel comfortable right away, and helped us loosen up when taking our engagement photos. Then, she photographed our wedding in September and was so kind and easy to work with, allowing us room to do what we wanted but still making sure that we got all of the shots we wanted, making sure to pull me aside briefly during the wedding to take photos with my great aunt that I told her were important to me, etc. The photos are gorgeous and we love them so much. She was such a joy to work with, and we will treasure our photos forever!
