WEDDINGS BY AMANDA
I consider my job one of my highest honors, and each person that trusts me to tell their story makes me love my job even more! My husband and I got married on a cliff over-looking the ocean surrounded by 9 people and two dogs. I was barefoot, my dress was dirty, and I had flowers in my windblown hair. Mountains have always been a safe escape for me, and the ocean never fails to offer perspective. I love finding people who resonate with that. People who appreciate the unpredictability of life and the beauty in the imperfection. People who's idea of a good time is a bomb margarita, laughing until your face hurts, and life with your best friend. Elopements often get the rep of “cheap”, but that’s far from true! It simply means you are removing the fluff and spending your money on what’s most important to you. Those are the stories I love telling. So it's no shock you will dance, laugh, booty bump, and enjoy each other the whole time we're together. Love is a beautiful thing, but it comes with its fair share of struggles and hard work. I shoot for those moments as well. I want to capture your day so intricately your emotions leap from each image bringing reassurance, confidence, joy, hope, and an overwhelming sense of commitment to this beautiful human beside you...through better or worse.

You've waited your whole life for this, and I take that seriously! I value my work and ensuring it is the best it can be for those who invite me into their story. If you are looking for anyone with a camera or traditional style portraits, I'm not your girl, and that's ok! I'm a photographer for couples who create a wedding day that represents them no matter how unique; whether that's on top of a mountain, by the ocean, or in their backyard. The couples who are down for a margarita, a dance off in the middle of their portraits, and laughing until we get a good snort. Headed to a National Park or a treehouse with some Alpalcas? Count me in. I thrive on adventure, and specialize in intimate outdoor weddings and elopements where joy isn't based on perfect hair and a clean dress, but on the true representation of your wild and beautiful love and the influence of those closest to you. This is your story, and I want to tell it in a way that outlasts any trend. My style is bright and full of light with a hint of edge; images that are timeless, not to be confused with classic, and authentic. So let's laugh, get that marg together, and talk about our dream vacation.
