My photography journey started with photographing my friends and our adventures way back when I was around 12 years old. Since then I honestly haven't been very far away from my camera. I was enamored with the nostalgia aspect of photos. I wanted to freeze those split seconds in time and that's exactly what I want to do for you as well. 

When I'm not shooting weddings & sessions, I spend my time with my hilarious husband Nick, my beautiful daughter Johanna, and my "terrible twos" little guy, Jack. The four of us along with our furry dog, George, live in an old but beautiful 1880's farmhouse and we're always finding new and creative ways to put our spin on it. I have a ridiculous make up collection that never seems to stop growing. I love graphic design & typography work, and if you really want to be friends with me, lets get Mexican food!



IT's NICE TO MEET YOU

   - Amanda

She was an absolute gem from start to finish! The style and quality of her photos was unmatched and everything we envisioned for our big day. If you are looking for a photographer who takes the time to get to know you, takes simply gorgeous photos, and captures all the little moments, PLEASE go with Amanda!

my CLIENTS HAVE THE SWEETEST THINGS TO SAY

She has such a kind heart and does this because of her passion for the art. She has a creative eye and knowledge of lighting that most photographers now-a-days are lacking and these two things are KEY for beautiful photos. Traditional or candid, wedding or maternity or ANY kind of session you could ask for, I am confident that not only would you have a great time with Amanda, you would receive some of the best quality photography of your life.

My husband Nick is not only the funniest person I've ever met (seriously, he could be a comedian) but he's also my biggest fan. He encourages me to be the best photographer I can be and carries in my bags at the end of a long wedding day. He is an amazing father and I'm so grateful to be enjoying life with him.

my kiddos

Johanna and Jack, my reason for being. These two make me go loopy on the daily, but oh when Johanna says "Mom, can you braid my hair?" and when Jack runs around the house saying "Mama, where are you?" I could just melt into a puddle. They are my favorite things to come home to after a long day.

If you're a sucker for beautiful orange-y golden hour light, we may just be best friends! It's my absolute favorite time to shoot so when there is a beautiful sunset peeking out, you can bet I'm there snapping away! Orange and yellow are my favorite colors too, so my heart just skips a beat when I see them!

SUMMER SUNSETS

I got my first taste of a destination wedding not too long ago, and now I'm hooked! I love any sort of travel to begin with, but throw in a beautiful wedding and it makes it even better! If you're considering a wedding outside of Michigan, or would like me to travel to you, let's chat!

my approach

My approach to my work is simple. I want you to enjoy not only the process, but the images as well. I try to keep things as laid back and natural as they can be so you don't ever feel overwhelmed. I also want you to know me beyond just "a photographer" so that you feel comfortable in front of my camera and I of course want to get to know you as well! I believe having a great working relationship is the key to producing amazing images. I started my photography business back in 2011. I was young and eager to jump into 



heartfelt & once in a lifetime

something that I felt so passionately about. I made tons of mistakes and took some pretty awful pictures back then, but everyone has to start somewhere. The important thing was that I never gave up. I continued practicing, I continued learning, so that I felt comfortable and proud to say "I am a professional photographer!" In this business I feel like you never truly stop learning. I love to take webinars, listen to podcasts and read all about things I can do to not only better my business, but myself.
