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!

Ali + Luke | Palm Springs, California Destination Wedding


The best part about a destination wedding? ALL OF IT. Literally, there is no moment greater than the next at a destination wedding. The guests are the happiest guests ever, the dancing is over the top, and my bride and groom are beyond excited to get married (like even more excited than normal). The best

Rachel + Zach | Bloomington, Minnesota Couple


I seriously love winter. The music, the atmosphere, the sweatpants (I live in sweatpants), and the snow. Such a magical time of year and I’m so obsessed with every second of it! I equally love clients who embrace the cold and use it as an excuse to cuddle and stay cozy, because honestly, those are

Leah + Ryan | Hopkins, Minnesota Wedding


Leah + Ryan will always hold a special place in my heart because the day I shot their engagement session at a cute tree farm was the day I got engaged too! Such a fun memory of their special day. Fast forward to November 10, 2018, and the magic just continued with these two. It
