lovely words


"I had the pleasure of working with Amanda when she shot our daughter’s wedding rehearsal and wedding day this past June. The day before the outdoors wedding, a tropical storm came raging through Maryland. The water under the tent was a foot deep, the scheduled outside rehearsal was now indoors, the tent was going to have to be moved to the back yard the morning of the wedding ... and what about the mud??  Needless to say, there was plenty of opportunity for stress. Amanda’s low key, professional demeanor while taking rehearsal shots in tight quarters and at a fairly uncertain (aka stressful) time was just what we needed. 

Amanda’s unobtrusive gift with a camera is pretty remarkable; she took really special photos; unexpected close-ups, lovely not-so-formal photos of the bride and groom that are bridal magazine worthy (no lie!). The images she captured of their friends, our families, the setting, the food, dancing & drinks still make me cry.

All of this while being a real pleasure to have be a part of the day. Thank you Amanda!"


"We were so pleased with the photos from Jillie's mini session.  Amanda made Jillie comfortable right from the start so the pictures were so relaxed, natural, and ultimately beautiful.  She sent a "sneak peak" photo the very next day and it brought tears to my eyes.  I couldn't wait to see the other photos and they did not disappoint!


"Amanda really has an artist's eye and the light and the vibrant colors were stunning.  She is patient, creative, and just plain old fantastic - I have already recommended her to several friends and I show off the photos every chance I get. "


"We had a mini-session with Amanda for our daughter's six month pictures and the pictures were perfect. We currently have two of the images hung in our living room and we're so grateful to have had someone capture that special time. Amanda was very personable and made the session very easy for us as parents with a small child. She returned the images to us very quickly!"


"Oh My goodness! To think i was anxious about how the pictures would turnout when all the silliness was going on! Amanda, these pictures bring tears to my eyes! I cant believe how wonderful they are! Thank you! The grandmas are gonna flip!"
