I am a fine art and journalistic photographer based in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina; though happily serving from coast to coast. I specialize in high end intimate weddings, events, and elopements. I choose to work closely and comfortably with my couples and I genuinely care about their well-being and happiness. Since I was little, I have been passionate about transmitting sensations through a photograph. To document life. To pause time. To remember those little moments that make our life magical. Nothing makes my heart beat faster than giving that gift to others. Meaningful moments shared between two people in love. The smiles, the glances, the hugs, the laughter, and the tears.
“I do not consider myself a typical and traditional photographer. Instead, I am an artist who carries in her heart the purpose of immortalizing moments that generate smiles and innumerable feelings through the years.”
I’m inspired by love, creativity, light, and all the in between moments of our daily life. The way sunbeams peek through our bedroom window in the morning, sincere interactions between strangers in a coffee shop, the different colors of a sunset…All the little things in life that are magical. When I'm not behind the camera, I'm a nerd in pretty much all aspects of my life and I think the greatest thing in life is to work on how to create greater wellness in our body, mind, and spirit, but most importantly, I love to learn and share that with others.
“I'm a journalistic photographer, explorer, and adventurer seeking to make the world a more beautiful and meaningful place.”

Amia is amazing
Relatively new to he area, Amia will be the premier HHI/Bluffton wedding photographer very near future. Creative, fantastic demeanor, easy to communicate with! Very flexible, and even took some cell phone shots so we had some photos on the same day! Book her!Sent on 10/11/2020

Hands-down the best photographer
Amia is one of those people that truly works to capture every single detail and moment of your wedding. She helped my fiancé and I get more comfortable in front of the camera, and was able to pull out our natural authentic selves. I honestly don’t know how she does it because she works so hard so fast but so efficiently, while capturing gorgeous photos. Besides my guess talking about how wonderful my wedding was, they couldn’t stop talking about how amazing my vendors were and especially how Amia made them all laugh and feel comfortable while getting multiple photos. I feel truly blessed that Amia was able to capture my special weekend and engagement photos and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. She’s new to the island, well somewhat new, But she will be, if she isn’t already, one of the top photographers in Hilton head, in the near future!Sent on 10/13/2020

Wow! Just wow!
Go with Amia. You won’t regret it. The pictures she took of our wedding were phenomenal. They were unbelievably gorgeous and as a couple who don’t take photos often, I was so happy with how stunning they were. Amia was so easy to work with and gave great direction (which we desperately needed). Our original wedding was cancelled but rescheduling (and even changing venues entirely) was so easy with Amia. She worked with the schedule we needed and gave us so many great memories. 💯 would choose to use Amia again.Sent on 08/04/2020
