My job as a photographer is not complicated, it is an honor. Every couple has a love story and I get to help tell that story.
Utilizing both digital and medium format film camera, I travel to Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and explore my home state, Indiana to capture the deeply proud, hardworking, and beautiful heart of America while they celebrate at weddings.
When you look back on your wedding images, I want you to see the sentiment, the moments you planned, and the intimate unscripted memories that come from all the joyful interactions.
Photographers are STORYTELLERS, we are historians.
i wholeheartedly believe that
She wasn’t just the photographer at our wedding, she gave advice, helped with our timeline, was ready with a tissue when the tears came, fixed hair, and captured the most amazing photos. Amanda truly is talented and has a gift for photography. We can’t imagine choosing anyone else to capture the most treasured moments from our wedding day. How lucky are we to get to enjoy these beautiful photos for years to come.
"She made us feel comfortable."
Love note from Evie:
She helped us so much throughout the entire process, which was especially helpful since we were planning our wedding from out of state! We were so grateful for her guidance throughout the entire planning process and when we met her officially on our wedding day we felt like we already knew her. She kept everything going smoothly and had us laughing and having fun during photos which could have otherwise been a stressful.
"She was the perfect photographer for our wedding."
love notes by Cat:
Every relationship begins with a hello. This is your way of starting the conversation and from there I ask for some key information before we schedule a call.
After the inquiry and checking my availability, I will send a link to set up a video call to chat more about the wedding planning thus far and to hear about your needs.
After the video call I create a custom proposal, which is an invoice and contract in one document. Once you sign and pay your deposit, you are officially booked.
After your wedding is on the calendar, we can begin preparing for an engagement session. During this session we get to know each other and you as the couple get to practice in front of the camera.
I am not a wedding planner, but I will always offer up tips and advice when needed. If you need an opinion or ideas for a timeline, let me know. I do encourage all couples to hire a planner who will help navigate their wedding journey.
The wedding day will be so smooth. We will have a timeline and clear expectations. I will be there to capture all the emotion and rooted friendships. At the end of the night your cheeks will hurt from smiling and you will feel so loved.
Roughly five weeks after your wedding celebration you will have an online gallery delivered to enjoy viewing your wedding day again and again. You will also receive a small gift in the mail to tangibly celebrate.
From your delivered gallery you will be able to order prints. I will also provide album options from your gallery as you make a favorite image list. I will push to make sure your memories live on beyond the online gallery.
This will be a day you talk about to your grandchildren. You will laugh at the dance moves, and tear up at the images of your late grandparents. I will forever cherish being your family historian, your storyteller.
