About Paperbird Photography

Hello! My name is Amy and I’m the friendly face behind Paperbird Photography. I live in a little DC home built in the 1930’s with my musician husband, Mandarin-speaking daughter, and two big dogs (a Leonberger named Hagrid who loves my kisses, and a Swissy named Crosby who always turns them down!). In my increasingly-scarce free time, I love tending my front yard garden and riffing on new recipes in the kitchen.

While I’ve always had a fascination with photography, it wasn’t until my daughter was born that I began to photograph in earnest. Of course, parents photographing their children is an old cliché, but in 2008 I decided to get serious and pursue a Bachelor’s of Fine Art Photography at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, thus beginning an exciting period of growth and exploration for me. At the time, Corcoran was one of the few remaining art schools to offer a traditional photography program, training students in the full history of the art form, from dark room to digital and everything in between. I feel lucky to have received such comprehensive training, and it continues to inform my work to this day. Indeed, one of the unique attributes that sets Paperbird apart is this fully matured artistic approach. I don’t just want to document your special day, I want to enhance it and turn it into a stunning work of art that can be enjoyed for generations!

    Paperbird has such talent and creativity for wedding photography

    The photos are one of the most important aspects of your wedding and serve as the memories of your big day. My husband and I are so thankful for choosing Paperbird to be part of our wedding. Amy and Caroline were so organized, respectful, creative and fun. We love the photos and our families do too! They added such special touches to everything and we could not be happier with our choice.

    These two are the best.

    Look no further, everyone! Amy and Caroline were absolutely fantastic. I specifically picked them based on a photo they did of another wedding at our venue, and I knew they were exactly what I was looking for. I am not an engagement shoot kind of person, so instead we met for a drink near our venue and hashed out what we wanted. On the day of, they coached us through everything and didn't miss a shot. The only caveat I have is that their editing timeline is long -- 40 to 60 business days. This didn't bother me, however, and it was worth it to have an online, USB and some print-outs in the sweet little keepsake box they provide.

    Washington DC will always hold a special place in my heart and I love filming weddings here! One of the recent ones I have filmed at the W Washington DC and I enjoy every time I get to work at this wedding venue. The couple had a wonderful wedding with an outstanding reception party. The happy newlyweds are the two friendliest and easy-going people! No wonder that the photographers they have chosen were just the same. I had a blast working with Amy & Caroline from Paperbird Photography! The wedding was a wonderful experience, because I get to work with talented professionals, who enjoy every minute of their job and spread the happiness around them. Working with Amy & Caroline didn’t even classify as working as we all enjoyed the experience and just made sure to invade as less as possible and capture the real emotion of the day and the beautiful love story sealed by the vows. RIMAS FILMS would like to highly recommend Paperbird Photography!
