The best ever!
Amanda is a gem. I can't express how lucky we are that we found her. Her photos have such a warm ambiance, they are so captivating, I simply adore them. I don't even know how she managed to capture such amazing photos considering my husband and I are the most awkward photo taking people. She's a miracle worker. Thank you Amanda for photos that I will look at forever!Sent on 11/06/2019
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Oh my gosh, thank you so much, Vanessa! From the minute we met I knew you would be a fantastic client and I was right. You guys were super easy going and a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much for entrusting me with these important memories! :)

Cannot recommend amanda more!
I was lucky enough to find Doskofoto through wedding wire and feel so fortunate to now know Amanda. From the very first email, she was uber responsive. I am very Type A and was so relieved to find a photographer that is the same way. This means Amanda was always early, organized, on top of every little detail, and professionally and seamlessly handled the business end of the transaction (loved being able to pay and view our contract on her online platform). She even arrived an hour early for our engagement photo session to scout shot locations. And let me tell you, if I didn't already like her before, it was love when she moved a twig out of the way (from the ground!) to capture the perfect shot.
She was in constant communication with us for the entire year before our wedding and for the months thereafter. Best of all, she made us feel SO comfortable. I highly recommend everyone do the engagement shoot, which she includes in many of her packages. It allowed us to get comfortable with Amanda, and let her know what type of photos we favored. It also allowed me to see that my makeup trial was far too dark for the type of look I wanted. By the time we got to our wedding day, we felt like our friend had arrived to take our photos and genuinely liked having her around us all day. We also really enjoyed working with her second shooter, Edith. Such a gem!
Finally, the talent. Amanda just has the eye. We didn't want cliche poses, and boy did she deliver. There were too many favorite photos to count and we still haven't been able to decide how many to print (there's about 100 that we deem frame worthy)! We are clients of Doskofoto and Amanda for life now.
Don't hesitate to book... you've found your photographer in Amanda!

Amazing personable and directive
Amanda is like an old friend who has become the best Photog you know. I am in love with our engagement and Wedding photos and will use her for any future events.Sent on 01/06/2020
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Thank you, Lauren! You guys are so fun and COOL! I am still recovering from the epic day that was your wedding day! :D
Andrea · Married on 06/15/2019
Amanda is truly an amazingly talented photographer. Chris and I were completely blown away by her ability to capture raw, candid moments, while also nailing the portrait shots! Not to mention her editing style is absolutely stunning. She's a joy to be around and made the photographing experience (Chris and I have never been professionally photographed, we had both the engagement shoot & wedding coverage) so easy going and helped us feel comfortable! Adaptability is one of Amanda's skills I saw shine during our first look which took place on the Venice Canals. Amanda didn't let the weather (bright sun, wind), or pedestrians walking get in the way of capturing the most GORGEOUS photos... Not to mention the fact that we had to rush that entire first look shoot because of time limitations. She went above and beyond each time we saw her, ensuring we we're happy and getting the photos we desired for our big day (Amanda altered her premium wedding package to reflect the desired number of photos we wanted to get from our wedding day, she ended up providing almost 1,000 edited photos for us and we couldn't have been happier!). If you're looking for a simple engagement shoot, or for someone to capture your wedding day-- Amanda will definitely meet your photography needs & more! Thank you Amanda for your professionalism, talent, and kindness.Sent on 10/01/2019

Amanda is one of a kind photographer! From the very beginning, she demonstrated utter professionalism and always made my husband and I feel very comfortable. Overall, she is very accommodating, personable, extremely responsive, and a dream to work with-always taking the lead to capture every single detail that was important to me on my special day, and going above and beyond to meet our expectations. In addition, her photography work is remarkable! She has the unique ability to capture candid moments that cannot be reproduced. In all, I cannot give enough praise to Amanda about her photography skills. Choosing Amanda as our engagement and wedding photographer, was one the best decisions my husband and I made. Amanda is amazing, choose her as your photographer—you will not regret the decision!Sent on 01/08/2020

Amanda is wonderful to work with!
My wife and I chose Amanda to be our photographer after seeing her beautiful work and after meeting her in person for an initial meeting. Her use of light in photography is special and is what caught my eye initially. She has a touch for capturing light beautifully in any moment.
She was a joy to work with through the whole process and was always quick to respond. We did an engagement shoot to get to know each other better and for her to get a feel for our personalities and how to best capture us. We were a little bit apprehensive about the shoot but she was awesome and got us to have fun with it. The pictures were beautiful!
For the actual wedding she was wonderful and chose a great 2nd shooter for the event. We absolutely love the pictures we got from the wedding. We did a back yard wedding that went into the night with no overhead covering. I know that can be a challenge for photographers because of the lack of covering to bounce flashes off of. I shouldn't have been concerned. She was great. She captured some of the most wonderful moments of my life and the pictures just perfectly show what it was like when they were happening. I love looking through the pictures even months later. From our first look and pre wedding photo shoot to the ceremony and the party we couldn't be more happy with her work.
With the package we got a bunch of prints with a nice finished wooden box package as well as the digitals. Everything came in good time and with great presentation.
I absolutely recommend Amanda for both event photography as well as for portraits/photo shoots. She was awesome to work with in both cases. I totally plan to work with her again when we need a photographer in the future.Sent on 04/14/2019
DOSKOFOTO's reply:My jaw just hit the floor! Cory! Thank you so much for this amazing review of our time together--I am so happy to hear that you are still loving the photos all these months later. You and Gal were a delight to work with and I absolutely loved the intimacy of your backyard wedding. I hope to work with you again in some capacity sometime soon! :)

Amanda is the best! She captured all the best moments in our wedding back in May ‘17 Our photos are truest more than we expectedSent on 03/10/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Hey Steph, thanks so much for the review! Your photos are some of my all-time favorite and will live in the DOSKOFOTO hall of fame forever! ;) I love that you guys both post so many throwbacks from this day, and I'm glad the photos surpassed your expectations!
Chelsey · Married on 06/30/2018
Amanda was incredible to work with. She kept my husband and I calm during all the chaos of family photos and picked a beautiful spot for our couples photos. My husband remarked that he didn’t even notice her taking photos during the reception, and yet she was able to get some images that perfectly represented the night and joy of everyone at our wedding.
We look forward to hiring Amanda again for anniversary and family photos in the future.Sent on 09/16/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Chelsey, thank you so much for this review! That's so funny that Isaiah can't remember seeing me at the reception, because my goal IS to be super swift and out of the way of your party! ;) I had such a fun time getting to know you guys and I loved sneaking away for those portraits. Can't wait to work with you again in the future!! ~Amanda

Wedding Photographer of our Dreams
My husband and I got married in October of 2018 and could not have been more satisfied with the experience we had with Amanda.
Upon our first meeting with Amanda, we knew right away that she was the kind of photographer we wanted to work with. I had admired her photos on various social media platforms and loved her photography style, but was pleased to meet such an easy going, positive, and organized artist in person. Her journalistic and less “posed” style was just what we wanted for our big day and the photos that we received are absolutely beautiful and will be cherished for the rest of our lives.
I have never been a comfortable person in front of a camera, but Amanda knew just how make our engagement shoot into something that felt natural and quite fun. We had a great time together and the photos turned out beautifully and so natural. It was a great practice run for being in front of her lens before the wedding day.
On our wedding day Amanda caught all of the important moments and so many more. The images were just what we had hoped for.
I can’t forget to mention the adorable wooden box she gives as a gift at the end of the entire process full of our chosen printed photos and a flash drive containing all of our wedding photos.
Amanda was organized, and on top of communication with my wedding planner and I throughout the entire process. She was an absolute joy to work with and we feel that we have made a friend in Amanda and look forward to booking her for all of our future photography needs.

When my wife and I met Amanda for the first time, we realized that she was the one, a no-brainer. Her style and personality really show in her photos, not just in their beauty but in her ability to capture those beautiful moments. She has a knack for making you feel at ease, take it from someone who doesn't like being in front of a camera. She's also superbly organized and always has a plan but you wouldn't know it by her easy going nature. Any time we had a question she was a text, call, email or facetime away. With the stresses that come from a wedding you don't want to worry about your photographer - and we never did, we had full trust in her eye and camera wizardry. I can say that looking back at all of our photos that I can feel that day in them, so many vivid moments. She absolutely exceeded my expectations, I even like the photos that I'm in (just kidding haha). I know that all of our future big life events, I want Amanda there to capture and share in those moments.

DOSKOFOTO's reply:Wow, Lenny, thank you for such a thorough and thoughtful review! What a fun journey it has been for us... I remember all of the Facetime calls and consultations fondly (except for when our orders were messed up at the cafe..). I loved hearing that you can "feel" the day in the photos because that's exactly what I was hoping to convey. I'm soo happy for you both; your wedding was one of the very few that I cried at! ;) I wish you guys nothing but continued joy in each other and I hope to work with you again very soon! --Amanda
Jennifer · Married on 03/04/2018
Amanda is incredible! From Engagement photos to our Wedding we felt so comfortable with her. She got to know us as a couple and made sure she knew what was important to us. Seeing her work and hearing the questions and advice she had for us showed us how experienced she was and we were confident we could trust her to capture the moments of our big day. The pictures she delivered back to us are beyond what I was hoping for. You can see the love we felt on that day in those photos, it is priceless to have that captured forever. It is rare that you find someone that is great at what they do and that you are happy to have around you for your big day. I can not recommend her enough for any life event you're trying to capture!Sent on 06/10/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Jenn!! Thank you so much for these sweet words! You guys were a pleasure to work with and I honestly felt like we were/are good friends by the end of it all! I'm so glad you felt comforted and in good hands. I remember at your consult you guys were very nervous about being photographed, but I think we hit a home run. ;) Looking forward to many more milestones with you!! --Amanda
Nicole · Married on 11/04/2017
Amanda is simply the best! I am one picky, type "A" person and she exceeded all my expectations. Not only is she quick to respond, flexible, and awesome at what she does, but she is the sweetest person. She did a boudoir shoot for me, and she made me feel so comfortable. My wedding day wouldn't have been the same without her. I just can't stop looking at my photos! Her work is simply the best! She goes above and beyond. Would highly recommend DOSKOFOTO!Sent on 03/01/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Nicole, oh my goodness! Thank you so much for such a sweet review! From one 'Type A' to another, it was a pleasure working with you guys! I feel so honored that you trusted me with both boudoir and wedding photos and I'm thrilled you loved the images. :) You know where to find me when the time comes for any future photo shoots! ;) --Amanda

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Amanda really went above and beyond. If you are looking for a passionate professional photographer; please, look no further than Doskofoto. Her attention to detail truly captured all of our intended intiment wedding day moments. Thanks again for all of your work. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Sent on 03/02/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Marvin, thank you so much for this kind review! Your wedding was so beautiful and is a favorite of mine when it comes to "hometown" weddings here in Long Beach! I loved the vibe and all of the unique ideas you and Nicole put together; it made my job super easy! :) So glad you loved the images! --Amanda
Drew · Married on 10/16/2017
Amanda was an absolute joy to have as a wedding photographer. From beginning to end she was on top of everything and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. As a man I was reserved about having a lady following me around and taking my picture all in my business but she made the whole experience very comfortable and actually enjoyable. There is so much stress, anxiety and pressure that goes into this one day but looking back on it the one thing we didn’t have to worry about was our photographer. If I would have known that from the start it would have made my life even easier. So take it from me, someone who doesn’t enjoy getting their picture taken and being the center of attention...Amanda made my wedding pictures a total breeze.Sent on 03/05/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Hey Andrew! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me this review--it's refreshing to hear from a guy's perspective what you appreciated and thought about my workflow! Your wedding was so well planned that it was a breeze and pleasure to photograph it, plus you guys are some of the raddest people I know, which made it even more fun! I could tell every little detail about the day was special to you. Thanks for letting me be all up in your business for a day! ;) --Amanda
Ivan · Married on 10/08/2017
Amanda provided us with excellent and professional service. She made sure that we got all of the shots that we wanted, and made sure that we had ample time in order to take our wedding portraits. I would highly recommend working with Amanda as your photographer if you want sublime wedding photos!Sent on 04/05/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Hi Ivan, thanks so much for taking the time to leave me such a nice review! I loved working with you guys, and I appreciated how much you trusted me and my vision.

I look forward to working with you guys again soon (even if you move to TX!). ;) --Amanda
Gabriella · Married on 08/26/2017
Amanda is an all-star photographer! She always goes above and beyond the call of duty for her clients. As a bride, it’s so important to be able to trust your photographer, and Amanda made sure that I had nothing to worry about on our big day! Beyond that, Amanda continued to stay in communication with us after our wedding, making sure we had preview images and knew when we would get our final product. Her work is pristine, her professionalism is sublime, and I am so glad to have hand her as my wedding photographer!Sent on 03/12/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Thanks so much for taking this time to write this review, G! I am honored to have been your wedding photographer. I'm so glad you appreciated the sneak peek album--it's a little extra work on my end but I am happy to give my clients something to look forward to right away, to hold them over until the final image gallery is complete. Thank you for putting your trust in me; I can only hope my type A personality can benefit others in this small way by keeping us on track and organized, haha! I can't wait for what's to come for you and Ivan and I'm looking forward to capturing it all. ;) Thanks again! --Amanda
Jessica · Married on 10/16/2016
Amanda is AMAZING! We couldn't have been happier with the quality of service she provided. From our first meeting all the way up to our wedding day, Amanda was right there with us. She made sure that our timeline was well planned out for pictures, she handled all my crazy family pictures flawlessly, she gave me pointers on what to bring for detail shots and she made my husband feel comfortable during portraits which is a feat all on its own! It really felt like we were hanging out with a friend all day. And I can't forget to mention how stunning our pictures are! We got a sneak peak immediately to share on social media for our friends and family that weren't able to come and when we got our full gallery, I cried. I look at my wedding pictures on the daily! We can't thank Amanda enough!Sent on 03/05/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:I love hearing this; thank you Jessica! You really put together so many amazing small details, I felt like my work was cut out for me! I loved your gorgeous venue, beautiful dress, and hilarious [small] bridal party... they made me feel like I was part of the family and not just a vendor! Thank you for sharing these kind words--I hope you always cry (happy tears) when you look back at your photos! :) --Amanda

DOSKOFOTO's reply:Hi Lara, thanks so much for this sweet review!! I am so glad you guys loved both your engagement and wedding galleries... I had a lot of fun with you guys too!

Ashley · Married on 06/25/2016
Ok so where do I begin...Amanda is amazing! I have used her for my engagement, wedding and newborn shoot. So at this point I guess you could say she’s my family photographer. :) As a bride one of the most important parts of the wedding (for me at least) was the pictures! Memories may eventually fade over time but pictures are what bring you back to that special moment in your life. Let me tell you, I am in LOVE with my wedding photos. Amanda was able to capture my wedding in a way that brings me back to that day every time I look at the pictures. I love her style and she was very willing to listen to any and all ideas that my husband and I had regarding certain pictures we wanted. She even came up with some ideas for photo “poses” that I loved and never would have thought of on my own. She was able to capture every moment of my first look. Along with every other important moment at my wedding. Amanda is very professional but also makes you feel super comfortable which is important. So basically if you are looking for an amazing photographer to trust with your wedding, look no further, Amanda is your girl!Sent on 03/06/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Ashley!! Thank you so much for this glowing review... you're toooo kind! It's been a pleasure photographing all your life's milestones and watching your family grow (honestly that's my favorite part of my job!). I remember when I delivered your wedding photos you said, "there isn't one photo that we don't love!" and that has stuck with me as something I think back to when I'm feeling low. I appreciate your support over the years and I am excited for everything to come in the future! Thanks again for allowing me to be your family photographer and document the most important days of your lives! --Amanda
Yessenia · Married on 09/20/2014
Amanda shot my wedding in 2014. I am a photographer myself so finding a photographer that would fit my liking was not an easy task. I’m so glad I found Amanda because she was able to bring my vision to life! I was her second wedding she ever shot and she did an incredible job! She was so easy to work with and we both felt so comfortable around her during our big day. She made the photography aspect of our wedding a breeze! She also provided a few edited photos while we were on our honeymoon which we loved! Since then Amanda has photographed our maternity journey, our fresh newborn and every year during the holidays for family photos.Sent on 03/16/2018
DOSKOFOTO's reply:Yessenia!! Thank you so much for sharing this review all these years later! If you count the wedding I assisted you on just a month before your own, you were actually my 4th wedding--isn't that crazy?! I'm so glad you encouraged me to learn photography and get into weddings, and I'm so thankful for your patience and ability to teach me everything I needed to know. I'm even more stoked that you loved the images from that day (it will always be my most-special wedding!). I love taking photos of you and your growing family and I can't wait for what's in store this year. ;) See you soon, I'm sure! --Amanda
