    My fiance and I hired Amanda for an engagement session. She made us feel very comfortable, and her work was amazing! She invests her entire focus and energy into what she is doing. You can tell she loves her job. We couldn't be happier with our choice.

    Summary: lucky to have found Amanda!

    Amanda has been great from beginning to end! We lucked out with this photographer and it all came from a Google search. She responded to my inquiry promptly, professionally, and very enthusiastically. Even though we initially thought her services might be expensive for us, the quality of her work, her professionalism, and transparency convinced us that she’s worth the investment and we certainly are happy with the decision. Amanda had creative ideas for pictures and answered all questions we had about the process, including something about the contract. Throughout the experience, she was nice, warm, responsive, well-prepared, and overall great to work with. She also seemed genuinely happy to share our special moment with us, which validated our decision to pick her as our wedding photographer. She provided the final photos very quickly and we loved the result! Good quality, creative, joyful, and romantic pictures. We would definitely hire her again and recommend her to others. Thank you so much, Amanda.

    Amazing! We loved having Amanda as our wedding photographer!

    Amanda did everything so incredibly well with so much professionalism. Our pictures turned out amazing. She really captured the vibe we wanted. Every aspect was caught on film, even the ones we were too busy too notice. She listened to what we wanted and help us out along the way as well with her experience. Amanda was honestly the best! I would recommend her to anyone!

    Amazingly skilled and thoughtful photographer

    Amanda was phenomenal leading up to and during our wedding. She took time in advance to understand our wishes and tailored her style to meet them. She had heaps of creative ideas and ultimately we were absolutely thrilled with the outcome.

    Amanda was generous with her time and energy, thoughtful in her interactions and photography style. After things wrapped up, she made sure to set expectations for us, and delivered our photos to us in the timeline she provided. All around excellent experience, I highly recommend Amanda, particularly if you're interested in photos that are more on the documentary side of things. I'm sure she'd be great at photographing more posed/staged photos but she really shined when she was given some creative liberty and had the freedom to document the day.

    Amanda was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

    I can't say enough great things about Amanda. She is incredibly talented and the consummate professional. We went a non-traditional route for our wedding, deciding to get married in the morning off the blue ridge parkway, and then hike up to the top of humpback rocks with our guests to celebrate our marriage at the top of a mountain. That meant having Amanda get up early to capture the ceremony and then do the hike with us (haha!). She was incredible, and brought along her photographer friend to help during the morning to get all the action. Later that evening, she met back up with us when we cleaned up for some portraits with family, and some of our absolute favorite couple photos we've ever taken on the downtown mall. I don't feel like words do justice -- the photos of our memories say everything I couldn't ever possibly put into words.

    I should also mention that thanks to her phenomenal photos, we were one of the couples selected for a Cville wedding magazine issue! Amanda is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. We will always be thankful for her and think of her often when we pass our beautiful canvas photos of that day hanging around our house. :)

    My wedding was in Charlottesville, Virginia at the UVa Chapel with a reception on the downtown mall in April 2018. Amanda was a pleasure to work with before, during, and after my wedding. She has incredible professionalism (responds to emails quickly, does her homework before the event (has a print-out list of all the moments / groups of people you want photographed)), makes you feel comfortable (on an otherwise crazy and hectic day), has great value pricing packages, and has a special talent for getting large groups of people to cooperate in portrait pictures!! She also has a great eye for finding unique spots in Charlottesville that photograph well!!

    BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, I can't speak highly enough of the final product - I absolutely LOVE my photos and can't imagine how it could have been captured any better. My photos are filled with light, color, are crisp and accurately capture the feel of my wedding.

    From a logistical perspective, everything went super smoothly the day of. Amanda was there early at the meeting place. She discreetly captured candid moments and was great at coordinating and gathering guests for bigger group pictures. A few weeks after our wedding, we received our photos. Accessing and downloading photos was a breeze. The problem now is figuring out which ones I like best because they are all spectacular!!

    I highly, highly, highly, recommend Amanda!!

    Amanda blew us away as our wedding photographer! From the day we first spoke to the months following the wedding, Amanda was exceptionally kind, professional, and fun to work with. I chose Amanda largely due to her documentary style photography, and she did not disappoint! In addition to countless beautiful posed first look and group photos, Amanda captured so many fun candid moments from the getting ready session to the reception dance floor. Many guests remarked on how she seemed to be everywhere without interfering in the ceremony or reception fun. She spent almost 11 hours with us on our wedding day and went out of her way to get as many different shots as possible. I really appreciated her easy-going, fun attitude since there is already plenty of stress for a bride on her wedding day! I also loved that she sent us a "Sneak Peak" only a few weeks after the wedding so we could enjoy a first batch of photos with family and friends before the full set was ready. Her combination of color and black and white was also great. I cannot recommend Amanda enough. She is a wonderful photographer and person who delivers!

    Amanda was extremely fun to work with and was accommodating to all of our needs! We had the pleasure of working with Amanda for our surprise engagement session and our wedding day. She made us feel comfortable from the start and her pictures came out amazing. We selected the package to have a second photographer with Amanda. We had a fairly decent size wedding (about 140) and Amanda got all of the photos we wanted and more! In the midst of the wedding season she would respond to our emails within 48 hours and was helpful with all our questions and advice on specific photo shots for the big day. I would highly recommend Amanda!

    Amanda helped me set up a surprise engagement photo shoot by casually walking around my soon to be fiance and I until I got down on one knee. She was cautious but right on time and got phenomenal shots of the proposal! I then decided to work with her for our wedding and she was with the bride almost all day then came back for the ceremony and reception. The time investment with the wedding (and also the editing) and quality of photos were excellent! Amanda was a great resource and photographer for our engagement and wedding. I would happily recommend her to anyone and put my trust behind her work.

    Amanda was a joy to work with! She and I met about 5-6 months before our April 2017 wedding. She was very professional and had several portfolios of her work. We clicked immediately and I felt very comfortable knowing she would be handling the photography of our wedding at the Boar's Head Inn.
    Prior to the wedding, we spoke several times and also met at the venue to discuss the flow, composition and choose locations for the images. Amanda had so many great suggestions and I appreciated her input.
    The day of the wedding went smoothly and again, Amanda showed her professionalism. She was pleasant and engaging when need be and yet inconspicuous throughout the entire event.
    I would use her again without hesitation. She's the best!

    Amanda was awesome. We had a few phone calls before our big day to make sure that everyone was on the same page. She was expert at shuffling through all the family photos and making sure that we didn't spend too much time on photos when we had a reception to get to! And the candid shots from the rest of the day were expertly captured. She was attentive and focused on making sure that we got the pictures we wanted but also didn't stay focused on that.

    When we got the pictures (which was amazingly fast, about a month after the wedding), they were amazing. There were staged shots, fun shots, candid shots and tons of them! We received enough photos that we took hours to go through them and each one was better than the last. We got some in black and white and others in full color.

    We had an awesome time working with Amanda and highly recommend her to anyone in need of quality photography.

    We could not have asked for a better photographer! Amanda was very professional and easy-going while photographing both our private ceremony and larger reception. She made us feel so comfortable posing for photos and captured amazing candids as well. She asked all the right questions to make sure that she captured everything we wanted in a way that we loved. The photographs were so beautiful that we could not stop looking at them! Amanda has a knack for finding beautiful backdrops and settings. At our reception she really worked the room and got so many stunning shots as well as fun candids. We got photos for sharing online so quickly and received all of our high resolution pictures in a very timely manner as well. If you are trying to find a trustworthy photographer, we could not recommend Amanda highly enough!

    Amanda was an amazing photographer! Our pictures came out beautifully. She captured many unique shots, despite late afternoon shadows outside, and low lighting inside.

    What can be said about Amanda Maglione...I'll tell you what,nothing but amazing things. She's a top notch photographer with many NYC years under her belt. Tough town to work as a photographer and she shined like a star on the red carpet...many of whom she photographed. We'll balanced from top to bottom, highly skilled photographer. Now when you combine that knowledge and experience with her affable nature and charm you can't go wrong. She is not only super talented but also down to earth, sweet, intelligent and a truly genuine person. When you meet her you immediately feel at ease. I was blessed to have her shoot my wedding. Stunning images and knows when to capture the decisive moment.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Amanda more than 12+ years ago when she was working as one of the top entertainment news photographers in New York City. She is not only a consummate professional and highly talented, but also warm, approachable and genuine. During her time working in NY, I hired and relied on Amanda to shoot hundreds of events for me (I worked as an SVP at a major PR agency and then as head of global comms at Revlon). I could always count on her discretion when working with high-profile executives and celebrities and over the years, her photos would ultimately result in hundreds, if not thousands, of global media placements.

    Amanda's work was so good that I also gave her two of the most important assignments in my own life - photographing my wedding and, a few years later, my baby. She brought the same passion and talents to these jobs as she did the ones in my professional life. From making my entire family and bridal party (and me!) feel at ease at my wedding to getting my 7 month old daughter to look directly at the camera, Amanda has captured some of the most important moments in my life.

    In case you can't tell, I cannot say enough great things about Amanda. I have the utmost respect for her and encourage anyone in the Virginia area to work with her!
