Photography should be fun and easy! And in order for that to happen, I really think we should, you know, like each other. Here are some random things to help you get to know me better...
I love accordions and tambourines, but can't play them. At all.
If I weren't already hitched I swear I could marry iced tea.
I met my husband (Josh) 10 years ago when I took his senior picture at Sears Portrait Studio :-)
Pizza and Thai food make my heart happy. Mint chip ice cream is pretty damn great too.
I love lamp. And Will Ferrel movies.
If it was in your Grandma's house I probably want it. In fact, the tackier the better.
I LOVE concerts! My top 5 (so far) are: Radiohead, Arcade Fire, David Bowie, Beth Gibbons, and the Decemberists.
I'm covered in freckles.
Josh is always amazed by how quickly I can change into pajamas after getting home from a long day.
I sneeze a lot. A lot.
My favorite movies are Royal Tenenbaums, Our Man Flint, Amelie, True Romance, Elf, Shoot 'Em Up, Black Dynamite, Pineapple Express, Hangover, Iron Man, Roll Bounce... the list goes on and on...
I have 6 God-kids... 6! And they're all ridiculously cute.
I absolutely loath putting my laundry away.
Josh doesn't like strawberries... crazy, right? He also hates avocados, olives, artichokes AND wine. Why did I marry such a weirdo?
I'm not even 30 years old yet and my hair would be totally gray if I didn't dye it. I love hair dye.
I have dental floss in my car... just in case. And I use it rather frequently.
I can't watch scary movies anymore... they give me nightmares.
My husband and I love us some happy hour. Mmmmmm, beer...
So... what do you think? Could we be friends? Tell me about yourself...

Out of all the amazing vendor's my husband and I had at our wedding, Amanda was definitely our favorite! We got in touch with her through a mutual friend - she shot his wedding and I loved all of his wedding pictures. Right when we met up with Amanda, my fiance (at the time) and I hit it off with her immediately and she really picked up on what kind of couple we were. She is super easy going, funny and, of course, very talented! We couldn't recommend her enough - she really is an amazing photographer, but throughout my husband and my engagement, she really has become a friend. Throughout the craziness of wedding planning, I feel it can be hard to find great vendors - but Amanda is so genuine and you can tell she loves what she does. I am so very happy we chose Amanda to shoot our engagement and wedding pictures, she really is the BEST!Sent on 04/14/2014

My now husband and I had interviewed three other photographers and thought that we had already found the right person. Amanda was the last photographer we met with that day, and she blew everyone else out of the water by a long shot. Why:Sent on 11/08/2013

She's branded everything she'll give you, from post-it notes to notebooks where you can keep organized. I have my "HELLO! My name is" notebook in my purse as I type this. Her emails are friendly, helpful, and PROMPT....I think once she took longer than usual, and I started worrying about her health!
Amanda has an incredible eye for composition and angles, and this really sets her apart. Even the raw images we received look great. She also knows exactly when to take charge and exactly when to let candid nature unfold. Our wedding pictures are gorgeous, and I cannot wait to order our leather album from her.
Near the day of, Amanda has a planning meeting with you to really iron out the itinerary. She gave us several timing suggestions just from her experience with weddings--something a photographer doesn't necessarily have to do. We actually changed the order of the dances and speeches per her suggestion, and I know it helped to make the event even more memorable.
Amanda's value is immeasurable not only because her packages are fairly priced, but even more so because she gives you extra time and attention. My husband and I might have paid for photography services, but we really gained a friend.
Many hugs to you, Amanda! We love you and thank you so much.

Amanda was amazing- as a person and a wedding photographer. When we met with her for the first time, she was by far the most prepared compared to the 5 other photographers we met with before her (our wedding photos were very important to us and we wanted to make sure we got someone we could trust). She wanted to know our all about our back story and details about us- she didn't just try to "sell" herself. It made a difference when it came to the wedding and engagement shoot because she knew and remembered to take pictures of what was important to/about us. All of her pictures are amazing- we've gotten compliments that they look like they are from a bridal magazine. She is definitely far beyond just having a fancy camera. She knows what light is best, what angles are the most flattering and how to make you feel comfortable being in front of cameras all day. She was so easy to get in contact with through the whole process, she was quick in getting photos back to us and her online gallery and album/print store is so easy to use. She was willing to help in any way she could and we will definitely use her again in the future for maternity photos, family photos, anything!!!Sent on 01/14/2013
Amanda is an amazing photographer and has such a great way of capturing the uniqueness of each couple. I have had the privilege of working with her many times and it's always such a GREAT experience...I can't wait to get married and have her shoot my wedding!!! She truly is the photographer I would pick for my wedding day and highly recommend her to everyone I meet!
I've known Amanda since we first started our businesses back in 2008. Since then, we've shot over 25 weddings together and she's one of my absolute favorites to work with. She's sweet, thoughtful, intuitive, and consistent. Her style is consistently artistic and the emotion she's able to pull into the photos is refreshing and completely worth every penny. She's one of the greats and I'd recommend her to any bride wanting beautiful and fun wedding photos.
I highly recommend amanda. Not only is she fantastic at what she does but she has the ability to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Call her you wont regret it.
