Amber was born in Nuremberg, Germany, to a military household. The family eventually settled in Las Vegas, where Amber attended a performing arts high school. The curriculum encouraged students to explore different artistic pursuits, and Amber found herself drawn to photography and the darkroom. One day, she claimed her dad’s old Canon AE1 as her own, and she never looked back.
Although she had creative eye, Amber knew that in order be at the top of the industry, she needed to strengthen her technical knowledge. So after high school, she made the decision to move to New York, where she attended the School of Visual Arts. Because she was a quick study, she was able to learn digital photography just as the technology was emerging, and became a pioneer in the field.
Amber excels at wedding photography because of her natural positive energy, which keeps her moving throughout the day. She has an easygoing personality, and is a calm and reassuring presence behind the camera. Her recent work has been featured throughout WeddingWire, and she enjoys writing and film in addition to photography.
