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!

Kiara Mendlik | Quinceañera


My very first Quinceañera! To be honest, I didn’t know anything about this amazing celebration, but WOW — this was an incredible gathering of family, friends, food, and fun! I loved every minute of this glorious day, and I am honored to have been a part of it. It started with family photos, then the church

Zack Kelly | Senior


Meet Zack: a hockey-loving, style-sporting, Minnesota-loving, down-to-earth kinda guy! I’ve known Zack’s mom, Kelly (yes her actual name is Kelly Kelly), for years and with an amazing mom like Kelly, there’s no wonder Zack was such a gem. We hung out in Minneapolis for the evening; capturing laughs, showing off some serious style, and chasing

Nikki Saar | Portait


Nikki reminds me so much of myself a few years ago. Hungry to learn the art of photography, wondering how to get started, and curious about different types of equipment. We grabbed coffee and shot around a bit in Minneapolis last month to chat, learn about each other, and we became friends along the way!
