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 want to see hugs, kisses, happy tears, bittersweet moments. We are creating this story together. This story that tells the end of your separate lives, the closing of that chapter, and the beginning of something new. Your new married life together is a day worth celebrating, and if it’s worth celebrating it’s worth remembering forever. From the preparation in pajamas to the donning of the most beautiful dresses and suits, the vows, the cheers, the dancing, the support and love of those closest to you. Let’s do it! 

But why should you share your day with me? Not only do I care about all of the things I listed above, but I also have 10+ years of experience. I’m a parent. Well, Amanda, how does that make you a better photographer? Ask any parent, they’ll probably tell you the same. Whereas before I saw the wedding day through the bride’s eyes, I started to see it also through her parents, her grandparents. The bittersweetness of all the amazing things that are happening and what I would want to remember when it comes time for my own children. What things will I savor. I take more candids every year. Constantly looking for the slightest look or touch. The happy reunions, the fierce hugs. 

I’m going strong on ten plus years of capturing people marry the love of their life! I would love to chat with you and see if we are a good fit!

About Amanda

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. Might be an iPhone, my little mirrorless, an Instax, and it might be my “big cahuna”. 

Lattes – Drink them every day. It’s like my personality in a cup, all energy and happiness! I once broke up with a guy over not stopping for coffee.

Traveling – Anywhere, everywhere. I definitely have a list of places I still need to cross off so inquire if you’re up for an adventure, they come with perks! I’ve been lucky enough to travel for many weddings. If your wedding involves travel then drop into my inbox now. Right now. Or text me. I heart travel! 512-663-8202

Working out – If you have had the (mis)fortune of stumbling across my Insta stories then you know I try to get in a good workout daily. Good for clearing my head and getting out of the editing chair!

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. Some started out as my brides! 

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, Voyage Houston, 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!
