ABOUT AMANDA

Hi! I’m Amanda, an Austin, Texas based wedding photographer! I didn’t start out here. Many years ago I wanted to be a writer. Telling stories with the written word is fulfilling, but I really found my footing with storytelling when I started documenting with images. Candid street photography was 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 tells the end of your separate lives, the closing of that chapter, and the beginning of something new and amazing! Your new married life together is a day worth celebrating, and if it’s worth celebrating then 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? I adore romance, playful moments, keeping in the spirit of your wedding day so that we focus on the experience of it, not just the images. What good are beautiful pictures if the moment itself wasn’t magical? We can have both!

I’m also a parent. How does that help, you say? Ask any parent, they’ll probably tell you the same. Whereas before I saw the wedding day through the couples’ eyes, I started to see it also through the parents’ and the grandparents’ eyes. 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 twelve years of photographing people marry the love of their life!

I would love to chat with you and see if we are a good fit!

THANKS FOR STOPPING IN TO LEARN
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT AMANDA (ME)!

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. 

Espresso – Drink it every day. It’s like my personality in a cup, all energy and happiness! It might sound pretentious to say “espresso” instead of “coffee”, but I need the good stuff, the concentrated stuff! Serious business. I once broke up with a guy over not stopping for a latte.

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 across the entire continent for many weddings. If your wedding involves travel then drop into my inbox now. Right now. Or text me. Go, do it! 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.

My big Italian 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 even 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 give you a fantastic visual representation of your wedding story to help you remember every happy moment!

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.  My colors are true to life with a little vibrant punch (like my tiny fists!). A lot of my clients have stayed in my life and joined my circle of friends.  Watch out, fun and photos are addictive!
