Thoughtful, Personal, and Extremely Talented
I am myself a photographer so I was very particular about who we hired. Amy ticked all of our boxes and more. Not only is she a technically great photographer she is a truly gifted artist. She takes the time to get to know her subjects and what they're looking for. She works hard and goes the extra mile to make sure she's getting everything the client asked for and everything the client didn't know they wanted. Amy clearly cares a great deal about her work and her subjects. She goes above and beyond expectations and does everything she can to make her services are worth every penny and makes her clients feel special. We feel so blessed to have found Amy amongst the endless list of wedding photographers out there. Hire her! You won't regret it.Sent on 08/31/2019

Amazing to work with (planned from out of town)
The most important vendor for me to get right was my photographer. I wanted a person who would be a calming presence during what could have been a stressful family portraits situation, considering the size of my family and my husband's family, someone who would make us both feel comfortable in front of the camera, and someone who would be able to capture genuine moments during our wedding, knowing that the day goes by so fast. It was also really important that every vendor be flexible to work with us from out of town, as our wedding was in New York, but we live overseas.Sent on 07/25/2019
Amy truly checked off all of those boxes. From our very first skype meeting with her (she was super flexible in working with us over skype from the other side of the world) we knew she was the photographer for us. We loved that Amy's photography style was very candid, and captured genuine moments.
On the day of, Amy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made us feel comfortable, handled our parents' last minute wants (thank you amy!) and most importantly did an absolutely incredible job of capturing the excitement, love, happiness and overall amazing feeling of the day.
I would 100% recommend Amy Sims

Stop looking. Amy is the winner!
I cannot believe how lucky we were to have Amy Sims Photography there to immortalize our favorite day! I never realized how much there was to think about with wedding photos. Hoooooney is there a lot to think about! Amy kept me cool and collected. She helped me focus on what was most important and worked backward from there to ensure we captured all of our favorite moments.Sent on 12/07/2018
Amy took our engagement pictures as well, and she was able to help my extremely camera-shy husband get comfortable with having his picture taken before the big day. The extra time and effort she took to get to know us and make sure we were happy before the wedding made all the difference in the world.
During the wedding, she had contingency plan after contingency plan and was quick to solve problems before I even noticed they existed. She must have donned a ninja suit at some point during the reception because Amy was able to catch some incredibly sweet and genuinely hilarious candid shots without making anyone feel like they were "on camera." I cannot recommend her enough. 10,000 stars!
