Amy's professionalism, poise and passion absolutely solidified her as our choice as our wedding photographer. She was very kind, honest and helpful in getting us the right background, time of day, and poses for our photos. She allowed our families to have input but also suggested specific shots that helped to influence our best photos that matched our individual personalities. Amy also took time to meet the entire family the day before to get to know us a little before the big day! My husband and I were beyond words when she finalized the wedding album. Speechless and in awe. Amy is committed to helping couples savor the memories through her brilliant skills and knowledge in photography. Hands down the best photographer we've ever scene or worked with. What a gift she has for her business in photography, and what a blessing it was to work with her. The Tinsley's wish her all the best! We highly recommend Amy and her support staff for your wedding day. You won't regret it!
We hired Amy for our wedding on October 2017 and she was the MVP. She was pivotal with organizing the timeline and recommending other venders throughout the planning. She was so easy and fun to work with helping us with every small detail. She not only took pictures but created our wedding invitations and programs. She also made our guest book where our guests could sign for the wedding which was accompanied by a video of photos taken the day of the wedding which we thought was a very nice touch.
The Photos are amazing and so unique because of her creativity in getting memorable shots. She did not miss an opportunity to get a special photo. If we could give her 10 stars we would. Thanks to her we will be able to relive our special day through her exceptional photographs forever.
Amy was a pleasure to work with from booking through receiving our personalized USB of all our photos. She took some amazing pictures and captured all the best moments. Would book her again without question. Thank you Amy!!!
Amy is incredibly talented. She photographed our wedding at The Cliffs Resort in Pismo Beach and we were blown away. When we received the finished product the photos were better than we could have ever imagined. Thank you for capturing the best moments of our life. Your amazing!!!

We interviewed many photographers and when we meet Amy there was no doubt that she was the whole package.
Amy is so personable and kind, she went above and beyond for us...... And lets not forget the photos, when my husband and I looked at them we started crying all over again she captured every moment, and every detail. We are so grateful
that we found Amy.
I found Amy through my wedding planner at the Cliffs and I am forever grateful!!! When I first went on to her website and saw that she had several different styles in which she took her pictures, which were all AMAZING, I was sold. I wanted free flowing romantic playful photos and with her diverse ability to do different styles, I had no doubt she would capture the feeling we were going for. She went above and beyond with making me feel comfortable as I have a couple troubled areas I was sensitive about, and trust me to be able to tell your photographer concerns like that IS A DREAM!!! I never felt nervous around her, even the first time we met I felt like there was an instant connection!! Everyone who was at the wedding loved her presence and kind energy. When the photos came out, I had friends and family tell me that her wedding photos were the best they’d EVER seen!!! Amy has been wonderful with the whole ordering process for pictures, sending us a beautiful personalized flash drive, as well as great advice for book selections. She also took ALL the detailed shots of our DIY projects we put together for the wedding, which was quite a list! I feel truly blessed that she was part of our special day and was able to capture our amazing moments that we will CHERISH forever!!! Her pictures fill my heart with JOY every time I look at them! I HIGHLY recommend Amy for your wedding day or any important photo moment in your life!!! She is truly one of a kind!!!
I actually met Amy for the first time to do maternity and baby photos. I was very uncomfortable having my photo taken, but she made it so easy and I was extremely happy with the photos she took. So when my (now) husband proposed to me, Amy was one of the first people I contacted. He proposed in the spring and we were wanting to have a fall wedding, so I asked Amy for her open dates and we set everything else up around that.
Amy is so sweet, extremely knowledgeable, and has a great eye and talent for photography. My mom and I were even laughing a bit because the area that my ceremony was held was nice, but it wasn't nearly as beautiful in person as it was in her photographs, haha.
Choosing Amy will be one of the best wedding decisions you make. :)
We could not have had a better photographer for my daughter's wedding. Amy was fun to have at the event--she is good at what she does without being overly enthusiastic. I loved that about her as I was the MOB and already nervous about every little thing! She was reassuring!!!! Her photographs are stunning--friends tell me that she managed to capture everything. We had a busy wedding-a New Orleans style reception with a Second Line Brass Band all the way to beignets, cigars, and scotch at the end. She took it all. I love Amy W. and can't wait to work with her again on daughter #2's wedding (?)!
I started looking for wedding photographers first because it was the most important vendor to me. I met with several photographers and then while scrolling through a wedding site on facebook, I saw a post from one of Amy's weddings. It was exactly what I was looking for. So I booked my appointment. We met her in her fabulous studio. She had so many gorgeous albums to look through and many large prints of her work. It was beautiful. We sat and talked and Amy was very sweet and easy going. A few days later we called to book her. What was great is that she was so flexible and after talking with us she helped us with a custom package that suited our needs and budget. She was super responsive...every time I had a question or asked for a referral she always got back to me right away. She helped build our timeline and even came to our rehearsal so she could see the venue and surroundings and get an idea of shots for the big day. That meant so much to me. I thought that was a really personal touch and gave me ease for the big day. On our wedding day Amy was professional, calm and sweet. She had such patience when dealing with our family photos and everyone wanting pictures. I have 3 kids and she was amazing at getting them to behave. She took some creative shots around our venue and made us feel so comfortable. We had so much fun and are so thankful for the beautiful images that we will cherish a life
Amy and Summer were outstanding from the start! We were planning a wedding from across the country and weren't able to meet Amy until just a few months before! Naturally with time ticking away, we wanted everything to be as perfect as possible, and she put us very at ease after our first meeting. Her style fit what my wife had in mind and she was even flexible for trying some different ideas. Amy is truly an artist and a fantastic businesswoman. Our products were sent within an exceptable timeframe I want to say within a few weeks. She was very good at keeping in touch and prompt and attentive throughout or experience. For you ladies worried about nightmare photographers all up in your face... Amy was NOT one of those. She was invisible the day of.
Truly a fantastic experience and I would recommend her to anyone!
Thank you Amy!

Couldn't have asked for a more professional photographer! She was knowledgeable, and took the time to help us plan our day. She gave us so many helpful suggestions, which made our planning so much easier. Amy photographed our engagement session, and our wedding and we LOVED our pictures. So many favorites, it was difficulty to narrow it down. After our wedding we had so many of our guests compliment her on how hard she worked and how friendly and kind she was. We highly recommend her.
Amy was awesome! We went to a bridal show in SLO and met several photographers. We narrowed our search to two vendors; Amy and one other. We aren't sure how it would have worked out with the other vendor but we cn definitely happy with Amy. The deciding factor for us when choosing Amy was the fact that she was willing to work with our budget. She had numerous option for us to choose from and tailored our package to meet our needs and means. Her assistant Summer was awesome and was fun to work with; she took some cool pics of the boys..
We had the pleasure of working with Amy on both our engagement session and our wedding, and she is simply amazing at what she does. Upon meeting her, you see her passion for photography and how she relishes in the process of taking your vision and turning it into a beautiful masterpiece. All with just a click of a button!
The concept of “Your Story, Your Style” couldn’t be more perfect. Amy was inquisitive and attentive to our ideas and visions, and with every suggestion, she nailed it. The end result was exactly what we envisioned. She was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to discuss every detail with us before each event, and both could not have gone smoother. We opted to have a “first look” on our wedding day and not only did she help setup the timeline, she kept everyone moving to ensure we stayed on schedule to get every shot (which she had already planned since she scoped out venue the day before).
The ideas Amy has and the intricate details she brings to life in each photograph capture every moment to it’s fullest. Her calm, friendly and warm demeanor puts you at ease and assures you that you’re in good hands. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone and promise that you will not be disappointed.
Amy is absolutely amazing! She captures the beauty in every little detail, she doesn't miss a thing! She is professional, organized and knows what it takes to make a great photo. Our pictures were absolutely stunning, we received non stop compliments on every picture. Amy and her staff did such a wonderful job, I highly recommend her!
Amy was very attentive, listening to what we wanted. She was very communicative, she met with us before the wedding, and even came out to the site for the rehearsal to get a feel for the venue and wedding party. We were very impressed with Amy and her staff. We got a lot for our money- she really listened to us and went the extra mile. I would highly recommend her! Her photos are very creative and fun. She has wonderful ideas, and some creative props too-
I wanted to extend a personal thanks to Amy Wellenkamp and her photography staff. My wife and I planned our wedding remotely and had a fair number of questions about logistics. Amy took the time to schedule a phone interview, asked about our interest, family and what we had in mind. She also had no issues with us having to juggle the schedule around a bit due to our two 11 month year old twins.
On the day of the event Amy and her staff were patient, fun and made sure that we got all of the pictures we wanted. Her staff was even bouncing around entertaining the twins for pictures :). They did a fantastic job of not being intrusive and blending into the event. My wife and I are super pleased with Amy, her staff and the pictures turned out perfectly. (even the sunset I requested from her showed up perfectly).
If you are looking for a event photographer I would highly recommend giving Amy Wellenkamp Photographers a call.

Amy was wonderful to work with! We were lucky enough to get her for both our engagement shoot and our wedding. She helped my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera and it really shows through in the photos. Amy and her assistant did not miss a single detail. One of our favorite things about Amy is the slide show she provides at the reception. All of our guests thought it was really cool and it was fun to see a sneak peek at her work. If you want to be sure to catch every moment of your big day go with Amy Wellenkamp Photographers.
We could not have been anymore blessed to have Amy and Summer capture our big day! We were so lucky to have the chance to work with Amy, both for our engagement photos and the wedding. She is incredibly easy to work with and her calm nature and attentiveness to detail made the picture process such a breeze. She gave great suggestions leading up to the event, was awesome at keeping everyone(our very large wedding party) on schedule and the pictures are absolutely amazing! We are so happy with the end results, the engagement photos that she made into our guestbook is an amazing keepsake and she was so helpful with setting up the photo cards that we sent out as our thank you notes. Thank you, Thank you for an amazing job well done, we couldn't be happier!
Amy and her second shooter Summer were amazing! We got to know Amy over our engagement session and her easy going style is very welcoming and calming on a stressful day like your wedding. We recently saw some of our pictures and just loved them. Amy is very talented and professional and I would highly recommend her for your special event.
Amy was absolutely fantastic. One of the things I appreciated about Amy right off the bat, was how calming she is. She knows what she's doing and does not make you feel rushed on your wedding day. Our photos are absolutely gorgeous, it is going to be so hard to choose. We've received so many compliments on what a great photographer she is and could not be happier with the results. Thank you Amy for helping make mine and Tim's day so special.
Amy is amazing. She captures every moment you would want captured at your wedding, and more. Every detail, emotion, candid moment, beautiful moment, she sees and flawlessly captures. She is so flexible, accommodating, and fun. Her easy-going nature has such a natural calming effect. She is truly the best of the best, and I am so blessed beyond measure to have had her photograph my wedding.
Amy was amazing. She makes your day even that much more fun and her pictures are amazing. She is so creative! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
Amy and her staff was truely amazing! We were pleased with the photos, the timely manner, her professionalism, extra insentives, and overall experience with Amy Wellenkamp Photography!! They made our day so specail and unforgettable. I would reccomend her to anyone and everyone, she is amazing at what she does. She truely focuses on your day and your style!
This is by far the best photographer in the Central Coast!! Amy was so wonderful to work with and she is sooo good at what she does. She gives you guidance and direction but she also allows you to be yourself. Let me just say I typically hate taking pictures because I never like how they turn out but from the first time we met with Amy to do our engagement pictures I just fell in love with her and the way she made me look :) By the time the wedding came I knew she would make me look good but the reaction of my bridal party and guests was unbelievable! I probably had 20 different people come up to me and ask me how I found her and complimented her work. Amy is a doll and if you are getting married in the area she is the one to pick if you want to have amazing wedding pics!!
I had some difficulties with other things the day of and Amy was very helpful. She wasn't pushy or anything at delays but offered to help. She was open to ideas that my bridal party had and helped make us look the best possible. She worked with my budget wonderfully and checked in to see if their were other special shots that we wanted before people started leaving. I would highly recommend her.
