Dash is an Atlanta based senior and wedding photography team. Amanda started Dash in 2011, and Katie joined in 2015. Amanda is the driver and dreamer who's constantly throwing out ideas without fully thinking them through, while Katie is the constant optimist who makes things happen. When you throw in our Studio Manager Michele, interns, and creative director, Garrett, there are lots of laughs, Instagram stalking, re-dos, google docs, pep talks, and dance and margarita and queso breaks. As a growing team, we strive to ensure grace, laughter, and professionalism remain at the heart of Dash.
Hello, friend! I'm Amanda! My heart is happiest when I'm traveling, so I'm often exploring new cities, hunting down their donut and coffee shops along with local restaurants. My husband is the best travel partner; he's been to all 50 states and I'm trying to catch up with 29! We ran off and got married on an island, so intimate elopements where your dress gets a little dirty will always have a place in my heart (running away somewhere adventurous to tie the knot on a mountaintop? I'm ya girl.). I dream far beyond reality, love any and all ethnic food (give me that Thai food, y'all, and most definitely all the margaritas!), and am freakishly obsessed with my pup, Copper. I love to dance, but really only have one or two moves (no judgement). I view my camera as my tool to do good. I love shooting for the nonprofits and organizations I'm involved with. You can check out the three organizations I am actively involved with: Bert's Big Adventure, 3Seams, and ACE.
Hi Guys! I'm Katie. I guess you could call me a homebody. I love a good Friday night at home while my hunk of a boyfriend, Nick, cooks me dinner, and we enjoy a tall glass of wine. We're also parents... to the prettiest Golden Retriever you ever did see (shout out to Bebe). I prefer a warm summer day on the lake or a five-star hotdog at the ball park, go Bravos! I have a thing for fresh kicks, and by "a thing" I mean a problem. The glass is always half full, and I enjoy helping other people view life the same way. It's the only way to truly live in my book!

Although our goal is to give you beautiful images you are proud to display, our purpose is much more than that. We believe we are intentionally given a time and place here on earth; a start date and an end date, which is displayed on our earthly grave. 1986-2009. The Dash represents the in-between, our given time. What events, people, and moments will be represented by your Dash? As photographers, we aim to capture your dash. We want to create tangible memories that will be represented by your Dash. We strive to build relationships with our clients so their personalities, character, and hearts are imprinted in our minds as well as our cameras.
