Favorite part of the venue?
What can I say about Amanda Donaho? How about TALENTED, wonderful, PROFESSIONAL, CARING, considerate, kind, SKILLED, comfortable, FRIENDLY, thoughtful, etc. etc., and I could go on and on... I cannot say enough about how I feel for Amanda as a person and as a photographer.
Amanda made us feel comfortable when we felt awkward and unknowing of what to do. She was always available to "talk" through email and open to talk about anything that you have concerns with. She was always willing to go up and beyond for you and your loved ones.
Above all, Amanda is just a NICE person. I think it's important to like your photographer as a person. She has incredible integrity, too, which makes me love her even more. Not only is she extraordinary at what she does, she has wonderful, easy to understand wedding packages and a la carte items. Her pricing is AMAZING, and given to the the economic woes this past year, Amanda was EXACTLY what I was looking for in photography, in a photographer, and in investment.
Significant to note, when the topic of how many weddings she does in a weekend came up, she said to me (and this is paraphrasing but pretty close) that she only did one wedding per weekend b/c she wanted to have her "creative mind" full and undistracted for her bride and groom for that one day. I thought her saying that is and was a testimony to how dedicated Amanda is to her art, craft, and passion. Her creativity is by far one that any photographer should aspire to... check her blog out when you have a chance! http://donahophotography.blogspot.com. Our wedding was on December 5, 2009.
