Hi friends! I'm Amanda. I'm lucky enough to have been born & raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, + currently live in Spokane, WA with my bff/husband, Danny + our kitty, Fitzgerald. You'll probably hear me talk about them a lot. Since 2015 I have stood beside more than 50 couples on their wedding day, documenting films you can feel by focusing on cinematic, emotion-focused moments that take you right back to the heart of the day.
You're throwing the party of your life because you chose this moment to marry your favorite person. A few years from now you may look back on your wedding day + endearingly notice all the "things" you might choose differently if you could do it all over again. But you'll never forget the way that day feels. I consider it an honor to being invited to box up those visual memories; the joy, the jitters -- the moment it hits you that everyone in the room is here just to cheer two of you on. How bumpin' that dance floor was. Those are forever feelings.
I’m here to create something that takes you right back to the moments you'll miss the most -- that laugh all day, take your breath away, perfectly imperfect, holy sh*t we're really doing this, happy tears, dance all night, champagne poppin', freshly wedded bliss. You know, really really good stuff.
HOW I WORK
What’s important to you is important to me. I view our time together as a creative partnership with you in the driver’s seat. I hope to spend time learning about you + your story so that when you watch your film or scroll through your photo gallery it feels real, beautiful, + like home to you. As much as I promise to capture all the pretty wedding day details you've thought of for months (+ trust me, you know I love a good detail shot!) my favorite wedding imagery will always, always, always be the ones filled with you + the people you love.
I want your keepsake wedding imagery to feel like it was delivered by an old friend. Someone who knows your story, + values both the big + little moments that made up your wedding day. I don’t think that artful + posed need to be mutually exclusive. I aim to deliver artistic, professional + meaningful imagery with true-to-the-moment reflections rather than “scripted” scenes + poses.
There is nothing worse than having a clunky, distracting camera set-up blocking your view at a wedding. I have chosen to work with a relatively limited set of low-profile gear compared to others in my industry, This allows me the freedom to be a more discrete guest during events + to move quickly to catch important moments as they come. I’ve invested in a small number of state-of-the-art pieces of equipment that I love, so that can I offer affordable, efficient + creative work to you without distracting your guests from the main attraction (you two! ;) duh!) Like my momma always said, less is more.
If you're looking for a joyful, professional, emotion-focused artist to join your wedding day team, I would love to connect! Drop a lil' note + let's get this party started.
No one has quite the eye like Amanda and her team does. She has a style that no one can compare to in my opinion. It’s raw and authentic and she has a way of making you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. The products she delivers are unique and make you feel like you’re reliving the best moments (and she has this way of just knowing what you value most and what you want her to capture). Her content is everything you want and more, and a personality to match!
Amanda is phenomenal and takes the most beautiful photos. We made one of the best wedding planning decisions in entrusting her to document the best day of our lives. Amanda worked with us on wanting to substitute engagement photos for photos of our rehearsal dinner and afterwards my mom said, “who is your friend over there taking pictures? She is the sweetest.” Somehow she manages to navigate our intimate gathering of our closest loved ones, charm my very talkative mama, and not miss a moment while capturing all of the magical elements of both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding with grace. We couldn’t recommend her more! We received so many complements after the fact when we shared our photos!
Amanda is simply wonderful. She’s incredibly talented and creative. She is the best combination of professional and silly. She is authentically herself which makes it even easier to feel at ease on your own big day.
Amanda was my freshmen dorm RA and it felt so special to be able to have her apart of my wedding, marrying the boy I was always talking to her about during my freshmen year of college!
Still to this day, every time I watch our wedding video I am flooded with tears and love. She did such a beautiful job of capturing OUR day. It felt so special to us and uniquely ours. To anyone who is contemplating if they need both wedding photos and a video I would 100% say yes!!! Having a video helps us relive our day and see all the emotion and love. It’s hard to describe but having this video is like a gift that just keeps on giving.
I really can’t say enough good things about Amanda. I love her as a friend and respect the hell out of her for her incredible business she has created and continues to grow.
Love you Amanda!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for our forever gift ❤️
I loved my experience with Amanda and would recommend her in a heartbeat. 1.5 years after the wedding and everyone cannot stop talking about the photos and how Amanda was the perfect photographer. She was in-tune to entire event and made sure to be at the right place at the right time to catch that perfect picture. We will absolutely use her for all photo needs in the future and wouldn't consider looking for anyone else. If I cannot say it enough, would 100% recommend Amanda!
