  • I really can not pick a favorite because they are all AMAZING!! She was able to capture our entire day.
  • She never disrpted any part of our day. We were so lucky to have her be there for us. She is an AMAZING photographer. Every shot she takes is breath taking!
  • Our wedding package includes our engagement session, 8 hour coverage, all of our proofs on a cd and a photo album with 200 prints.
  • She is very easy going and did a wonderful job of making everyone in my family and in my wedding party feel comfortable. She is such a good person. I think of her as a friend now :)

Review: March 2010 Wedding

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? Amanda has took Bryan & I's engagment photos and will be taking our upcoming wedding in March. It was so hard to choose, and depending on the day I have different favorites. Amanda was so great to meet us over 30 miles from her place to a beautiful park in Boone Iowa. The weather was overcast and not sunny that day so I wasn't sure how'd they turn out. I'm just amazed still when I look at them how she was able to capture the beauty of the natural light and the colors in the photos with the backgrounds are amazing. I love one photo where she had my fiance and I sit on some rocks and had us kissing. We were off to the far right of the picture and the left of the photo was the beautiful fallen fall leaves in all their color and glory. It captures the true essence of us and our love for outdoors!
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? So easy to talk with and very professional. She would see something in her head and it was amazing to see the final product and how she got the idea from her head to camera to photo. As I said before I was a bit blue because the day was overcast, but no one can ever tell by our pictures because of how she ueses natural light to capture the images. Much better than having flashbulbs and posed positions which look aqward. She'll be taking pictures of our family for years to come!
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? Our package included: engagement session, wedding all day!! having someone do our wedding all day and for the hours we needed was extremely expensive and the style didn't reflect the price. Amanda is with the couple all day to capture every moment. Package also included a trash the dress session.
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? She introduced ourself and was very professional. She's an average girl who's laid back and easy to connect with. She's always been easy to get in touch with so makes you feel like your an important customer and valued.

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? Its so hard to decide because I loved them all, I loved all the ones we did outside and all mine with my bridesmaids turned out really pretty !
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? She was awesome with everything! She got there early for me because I wanted to get as many pictures done before the wedding that me and my husband were not in together so we didnt see each other before the ceremony. She is so great to work with!
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? I got disks of all of my pictures from the whole day in a beautiful book with our names on it. There was more I could of had but opted out of, such as engagement pictures and pictures of my reception.
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? She is very professional and made everything as easy for me as possible on my day. It was a hot day and I was getting very sweaty in my dress and she didnt make me take any more pictures than I wanted to, even though I wish I could of stuck it out a little longer, because they all turned out so perfect!
