A lifelong fine artist, Amanda found her truest expression in capturing the unique love, beauty and artistry of weddings. A wedding is a unique moment in time, full of emotion, joy, and love. With an eye for emotional moments, timeless styling, clean and bright aesthetics, Amanda will capture the essence of your day in classic photos that you will treasure forever. 

Amanda studied studio art, photography and art history at the University of Santa Barbara. She went on to work as a photojournalist for Santa Barbara News Press, and Santa Barbara Independent Magazine. After a few exciting years, Amanda was sure that the best expression of her artistic soul came from capturing the beauty of love- through portraits, couples shoots, and wedding days. Her love of fashion, aesthetics, history and fine art all came together, and now she is is living the dream- taking gorgeous photographs of unique and precious moments every day.

Her well rounded background in fine art is evident in every impeccably composed photo that Amanda takes. Her eyes are trained for beauty, symmetry, aesthetics, and details. She will bring a journalistic style to your day, and capture all of the most important moments as well as the tiny, unexpected ones. 

When you receive your gallery from Amanda, you will have the whole story of your day- how it felt, the unique details that made it yours, intimate and lovely moments between the couple that can be treasured for many years to come, and fun and laughter of family and friends having a great time at the party! The gallery will be beautifully composed, classical and timeless, with beautiful, dreamy, realistic colors. 

Her experience as a journalist and international photographer has prepared Amanda to blend seamlessly into any situation. She has experience with many different traditions, cultures, and religious ceremonies. She has flawlessly documented everything from the most intimate mini wedding, to the most lavish and complicated celebration. She has experience in many different cultural traditions and cultural fusion weddings, and has photographed no less than two NFL players' weddings, as well as the President of the United States, Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Queen of Morocco! But no matter what, on your wedding day, her focus is you. What makes you special and unique, your dreams and desires, and how to best capture the love, joy and beauty of your day so you can treasure those memories for many years to come.
