I'M SO EXCITED TO MEET YOU!

I'm Amanda! I LOVE a good cup of coffee + a Target run! I'm an Enneagram 6 and you can find me most days listening to My Favorite Murder while I work! I LIVE in active wear or black skinnies, but I also love putting on some falsies and hanging out with friends!

 

 

A few favorites!

+ Vintage boho meets mod aesthetics
+ S'mores flavored anything
+ Sewing - my sister, Megan, has gotten me into quilting

THE AKP EXPERIENCE

When you book me, you get my full attention. I am 100% invested in you and your fiancé and SO excited to be along for the ride as you plan to marry your favorite person in this universe! I am so much more than just a photographer who shows up, takes pictures, and leaves. By booking AKP, you are investing in a photographer who is going to not only serve you and deliver a gallery of beautiful pictures, but someone who is going to provide you with an unforgettable experience, and cheer you on along the way. I will be there every step of the way for you from the moment your inquiry hits my inbox, to planning details, the day of your wedding, and serving you and your family for years to come as not only a photographer, but as a friend!

 

On your wedding day, I am all hands on deck and am often fixing veils, pinning fallen hairs, bustling dresses, fanning trains and SO MUCH MORE. When you hire me as your wedding photographer, you are not just hiring any vendor, you are getting a friend who is going to yell, "YAS GURLL" during your bridal portraits to cheer you on. If I'm being entirely honest, I'll probably yell "nuts to butts" at least once to get the groomsmen's attention (it makes for the best candid pictures, I swear!)

 

By booking AKP, you're getting a friend who is ready to guide you and your fiancé + make you feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera. When you look back at your wedding gallery, you will FEEL the emotions by reminiscing your 'lived in' moments.
