BEHIND THE LENS

meet Amanda

"For me, wedding photography is more than just capturing moments. It’s preserving the start of a legacy. It’s allowing my couples to relive the best day of their lives. It’s making friends and family." 

"It’s knowing how to bustle a dress when no one else does. It’s being able to expect the unexpected. To step in when others step out. To lend an ear and a shoulder when a loved one suddenly passes away. A hug and high five as you celebrate down the aisle. It’s more than just snapping pictures. It's more than just money in the bank. The experience I provide is more than just a photographer. It’s what I was meant to do."
