About Amanda

If you’re here you want to know About Amanda, right?! Hi! I’m Amanda, Austin wedding photographer extraordinaire!  I didn’t start out here.  Many years ago I knew I wanted to be a writer (former English major).  Telling stories with the written word is fulfilling, but I really found my footing with storytelling when I started documenting with images.  Street photography is my first love, and I use that photojournalist touch as I document weddings. I’m going strong on nine years of capturing people marry the love of their life!

Things I love:

Photography – I know, it seems like a given, but I REALLY love it, and I carry a camera of some shape and size everywhere.

Coffee – Drink it every day. It’s like my personality in a cup. I once broke up with a guy over not stopping for coffee.

Traveling – Anywhere, everywhere.

Books – I read every day, and for the most part I read two books simultaneously rather than finishing one before I move on to the next.

Journals – Big leather bound ones full of ramblings that nobody will ever read.

People I love:

My babies! – Ok, they’re not exactly babies anymore, but they’re still tiny with lots of hair, like adorable little dandelions.

The husband/CIO – Someone has to put up with me!

My family – It’s big (23 aunts and uncles, 21 first cousins + tons more)

My friends – Some have been with me since childhood, some I’ve picked up along the way, and they are my extended family.

I create authentic wedding photographs full of emotion. Real hugs, real tears, real laughter, that’s what I want to see. Yes, we’re going to get creative, too! I will provide you with an amazing visual wedding story.

I’m fortunate that my clients come back to let me keep telling their story with fun maternity sessions, sweet newborn sessions and playful family sessions.  My wedding style is often described as fun, romantic, and imaginative.  A lot of my clients have stayed in my life and joined my circle of friends.  Watch out, fun and photos are addictive!

I offer day-in-the-life half and full day sessions as well as lifestyle family sessions. You can invite me in for play time, juicing with kids, baking cookies with Grandma, splashing in the bath. We can document your every day activities beautifully. 

My work has been published in J. Crew, Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Brides of Austin, Borrowed and Blue and Pre-Owned Wedding Dresses. I’ve photographed weddings as far away as Alberta, Canada, and Riviera Maya, Mexico. I don’t want to stop there, let’s talk about where you want to get married!

I’m based out of Austin, Texas, and ready to travel worldwide. I give excellent travel deals to the folks in and around Houston and Dallas.

I hope you’ll contact me and let me tell your story!
