GET TO KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPHEr
Hi, I’M AMY
I understand, fully, the absolute weight and magnitude in selecting the right photographer to capture your love story perfectly. You want to feel relief and even excitement when you hire your photographer – knowing you’ve made the perfect choice. So.. may this will help you out a little.
I’m the right photographer for you if you are looking for a genuinely kind, caring, fun, laugh-a-lot, detailed oriented person who loves serving and caring for others. I’m very much a mommy type of person. I will even go as far end you a care package when you’re sick! I care about the people close to me. They know I’ll always be there for them in anyway that I can.
I’m the right photographer for you if you are the type who looks past the present and into the future and wants someone who will always be there for you to capture all the milestones and memories coming. Your memories are dear to me too! Just don’t forget to sprinkle, in between all the moments, coffee, wine and fun dinner dates with great conversation, delicious food and desserts. I’m a massive craft coffee lover and foodie!!
If these statements above are true to you, I am so excited for you to read on!
What sets me apart?
going in deeper…
I love connecting with couples on a deep level. The more I know you, the more I know how to capture your day perfectly. The more comfortable with me you are, the more perfect and flawless your photos will be!
This is why I take only a limited number of weddings a year – these relationships are important to me and takes time to build and grow! So, let’s share a delicious meal over a glass of wine! I believe you can’t really know a person until you’ve shared a meal.
With 10 years of photography experience and serving weddings of all shape and sizes – I’ve experienced them all! But what makes each experience special is the unique story of each couple! And my goal is to document every detail – capturing all the nuances that go into a wedding – details that are unique only to the couple!
GUIDE NOT THE HERO
I don’t want to be the one that saves the day. I want to be the person who makes life easier for you – giving you all you need to make the right decisions and to overcome any problems you encounter. I’m your support system and even a shoulder to cry on if you need.
Being a guide requires a level head, attention to details and the ability to keep people in line and on the right track. Creating community and making people feel safe and taken care of is one of my superpowers!
MY PHILOSOPHYBeing a photographer isn’t only about taking beautiful pictures, it’s about developing a relationship with my clients – knowing them in and out. EVERY couple is different and every love story is different. I want to be true to you and who you are – both individually and as a couple! I want you to be EXCITED about the whole process! I want you to be excited that you finally “found the one!” Because you deserve beautiful images! You also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When my couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience, shouldn’t it be fun? And enjoyable? And natural? I think so! My goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they will never forget.MY PROCESSOne way I ensure that my brides and grooms enjoy the best photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with my couples. I try my best to make sure that all of my couples are the perfect fit before officially booking. A bride and groom should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be excited about the whole process with them! After booking, I love getting to know my clients through an ENGAGEMENT SESSION that helps them warm up to the camera so that they are almost experts during the wedding day! By the time the wedding day arrives, my clients feel more like friends – and even family! This creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography!

To the men, I really don’t enjoy posing for pictures and it was very difficult for my fiancé to get me to agree to doing this but after working with Amy, I feel like I may have been a little dramatic. Amy was super easy to work with. She had great ideas, she was directive and yet, very open minded to our ideas. It was really like we were just hanging out with her and it helped me feel at ease and less like a photoshoot. Highly recommend her!

I knew before we even got engaged that I wanted Amy to photograph our wedding! And she did an absolutely incredible job! She worked nonstop the entire day to capture everything from the big picture to the little details that I barely had time to notice myself throughout the day. I’m not always super comfortable when being photographed, but Amy did such a good job giving us guidance and making me feel confident and beautiful! She was thorough and detailed and thoughtful, she captured everything that I wanted to remember from the wedding and kept us all on track throughout the day! Looking back on the moments she captured, I feel the love, joy, and excitement of that day all over again. I get to see the most special day of my life, beautifully frozen forever in time, taken by one of my most dear friends. I am so thankful for Amy and the hard work and love that she puts into her work

I cannot recommend Amy and Andrew highly enough… At first meeting, you immediately know Amy loves her work and pours all of her excellence and care into it. Her vision and dedication to getting every perfect shot and honoring the bride and groom’s wishes is unparalleled. I can’t emphasize enough how important and special a professional photographer is. Amy and Andrew worked together to keep everyone’s spirits happy and bright on wedding day, along with capturing precious moments between family and friends. Their sweetness and professionalism made each moment go smoothly and she was ready with her camera to capture pictures of the bear that crashed the mountain wedding! It was refreshing to know that the photographer was there during the day and to know that Amy and Andrew would undoubtedly proactively capture the day’s most precious moments. Beyond their incredible hearts, Amy’s vision and keen eye produced the most breathtaking and beautiful photos. She didn’t rest all day and she captured every moment with a smile. I am thankful for their work and for capturing such a special day for the bride&groom and their families. Thank you Amy and Andrew!!

Working with Amy has been a joy! I hired a photographer for my daughter’s wedding and gained a friend. She has a great eye for composition and a gift for putting people at ease while she photographs them. My wedding guests even commented to me on how sweet she and her team are! Her ability to capture those little moments throughout the day in stunning photos will keep the joy of that day alive in our memories for years to come.

The engagement session is a wonderful time to learn how to work with you behind the camera! I will help you pick a beautiful location and plan your wardrobe for your session! Be ready for a lot of laughter and fun! CoverageWe are often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story and the answer is yes – although I prefer 10! My main goal right now is securing and saving your date. You can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and we have a good idea of your timeline.Wedding Timeline PlanningAfter the engagement session I will work with you one-on-one to create a timeline suited and personalized to your wedding day! The goal is to make use of the best light and to be ready for everything – by allotting extra time as insurance! My Shooting StyleWe love being both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. To be more exact, I shoot both candid and posed! There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there. (The ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.)Digital FilesYAY you are married and now to the fun part – giving you your photos! I average 75-100 images per hour that we’re shooting. I love delivering my client’s files quickly and easily via an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want.

Handcrafted Albums are the perfect way to remember your wedding day
Your first decision as an engaged couple is to set priorities for your wedding planning. You have to decide what you value most. Is it the dress? The food? The Venue? As a bride AND photographer, I believe that couples should make their photography a top priority. After the big day is over, you will leave your reception with a spouse & your pictures…. that’s it! All of that planning and preparation is over in a matter of hours! So if you’re choosing to invest in high quality photography, those images deserve a classy, elegant home after the wedding.
