Amanda was born in Paramount, CA, a small city in Los Angeles County. After a California childhood, she moved to Kansas at age 17, where she attended University. Upon returning to California for good, she pursued stints in interior design and journalism photography, and then quickly became immersed in wedding photography. She has been photographing weddings ever since, and working as a top professional for over eight years.
Amanda is largely self-taught, and has spent countless hours refining her style and technique. As a wedding photographer, she really enjoys connecting with couples and learning their unique story. Her favorite moment to capture is the wedding toast, because it is heartfelt and unguarded, and reveals genuine love and affection for the wedding couple.
Amanda has photographed weddings across the county (including a Ninja-suited groom and his pirate groomsmen), as well as in the Dominican Republic. When not photographing weddings, Amanda loves road trips, all kinds of music, podcasts, and being a mother of two.
