Meet Amanda

Hey you! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Amanda, a 90's kid with big dreams to someday be able to eat all of the donuts, sushi, and pizza I want without gaining a pound (a girl can hope). As much as that is a dream of mine, my biggest dream is to simply be happy. That's why I'm a photographer. Capturing your moments and raw emotions, brings me joy. It's great to meet you I'm glad you're here.

I'm the kind of girl who can go on a Netflix binge under a cozy blanket with my rescue pup and a glass of wine one day and be skydiving in Mexico the next! If you say we're going on an adventure, I'm totally in. The ones who know me best say that I'm a terrible joke teller, a wannabe personal stylist, and a risk taker. But enough about me... let's brew a fresh cup of coffee and chat! After all, this is your day and I'm dying to meet you. Can't wait to meet you soon!

Having Amanda as our photographer was nothing short of what we were hoping for. She was professional in identifying the needs of our group, while warm and courteous throughout the entire process. I would call on Amanda today, tomorrow and any time in the future for her services

Just like cheese and wine were made for each other, so were photography and travel. My two…ehhhhhh, four loves. If you were to see my bucket list, you’d see that a majority of it is travel related: picnics on a mountain cliff in Colorado, salmon fishing in Alaska, wine tasting in Italy…just to name a few. I have a passion for travel – I crave it, and my camera thanks me.

Whether you’re getting married on an island, celebrating your 10-year anniversary under the Eiffel Tower, renewing your vows in the middle of the forest in Washington, or skiing down Mount Kilimanjaro, and you’d like to have photos to remember it forever, let’s talk!

Taya | Senior


Taya’s senior session was a DREAM! The lighting was perfect, her outfits were on point, and her personality was so sweet. Taya and I loved every minute of her session {except maybe the mosquitos…}! It’s so much fun having clients from my hometown area, and to explore with them during such an exciting time of

Kayla + Drew | Engagement


When your Senator asks you and Trish Allison Photography to take his engagement and wedding photos, you simply don’t say no. 😉 But seriously, how perfect are these two!? And also, how did I not remember how gorgeous the Minnesota State Capitol is? We started the session exploring their amazing “office building” and we ended

Makayla Renoos | Headshots


When fellow photographers ask me to take their headshots, my heart flutters a bit. The thought of another creative asking me to take his/her photos is scary and so fun at the same time! Meet Makayla, owner and creative at Wisconsin-based Cranberries and Tea Photography. She was seriously the nicest and most humble photographer I’ve
