Hi there!

I’m Amanda, a freelance photographer based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

My love for photography all started in my high school film class. I have always been creative and artistic, but it wasn’t until I was holding my first camera that I finally knew I had found my calling.

Once at college, I started shooting more professionally. I joined the university’s yearbook and newspaper staff as the head photographer and I interned with a wedding photographer where I learned about lighting and posing. Before I knew it, I was booking more and more weddings and portrait sessions. Fast forward a few years and I now specialize in family, maternity and wedding photography.

I believe every person has a unique story. The more I realize this, the easier it is for me to help others capture their story through photography. Before every session, I make it my priority to sit down with my clients and hear their stories. That way there are no coping poses off Pinterest, no stiff stances - just me and my clients working together to tell their unique and beautiful story.
