Hello! My name is Amanda Long and I specialize in story-focused wedding and engagement photography. It is in my heart to not only document your day as it authentically happens, but to be thoughtful while doing it.
I love it when clients turn into friends :) Your photographer is who you'll spend most of your wedding day working with so it's very important that we're a good match. I believe in having fun while I work and want to make your wedding photography experience as romantic and crazy in love as you are! I'll definitely get on the dance floor to capture your fancy moves, do whatever is necessary to get your wedding party to laugh, and kindly wrangle your family for portraits.
Wedding days can be stressful and if there's one thing that doesn't photograph well it's a stressed out person. With intentional pre-wedding planning I work with you and your coordinator to make sure that we have time for everything that is important to you. I always tell my couples that wedding day amnesia is a real thing, but that we will create every opportunity to slow things down so that they can be present for their celebration. My goal is a bride/groom -chilla... not zilla. ;)
I am located in Central Oregon, travel anywhere nationally or internationally, though I particularly enjoy working in Seattle, Phoenix, and Santa Fe. Thank you for looking, if you are interested in getting some coffee and talking about your wedding day vision please message me using the contact form at the top of my profile.
...tell me your love story.

We had a small wedding in Shevlin Park, and Amanda gave us exactly what we were hoping for. Our photos had beautiful colors (and some black and white), and she was very easy to work with. I'd definitely recommend her for any occasion.

Amanda Photographic was amazing at our wedding, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an event photographer. When I started planning our wedding, the one thing I didn't really realize is how important the photographer is in structuring the entire wedding day schedule. Amanda clearly has this process nailed. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she communicated with us regularly to ensure that we were all on the same page as to what photos were important to take and when we should plan on taking them. On the day of, Amanda showed up with her team and a printed schedule in hand. From there on, I could just relax, because I knew she had the entire day under control. From getting me in position to walk down the aisle, to the task of herding large groups of mildly intoxicated family members to portraits, Amanda and her team did it all!
But aside from just organization skills, the "proof of the pudding" is clearly in the end result of her photos. They are all thoughtful and artfully composed. Amanda has an amazing ability to capture the actual emotions of the experience on camera; just looking at the pictures brings me back to what I was feeling that day. All our guests fawned over our amazing and artistic photos, and I know the pictures will be excellent memories for years to come. More personally, Amanda is a super kind and generous person that clearly loves what she does. I highly recommend Amanda Photographic, and I hope I have the opportunity to work with her in the future!
Amanda has such a passion for her work and clients. It is clearly evident that when you hire Amanda she is giving you her best and all. She is a joy to work with and poses professionalism while still being fun and always energetic! Highly recommend Amanda Photographic!
Amanda is a joy to work with. She always comes prepared and has a good eye for versatile shots. We were lucky to get her for a set of portraits that we've cherished and sent all over! I would highly recommend her for photography services.
