I am a wedding, newborn, and family photographer based out of Tallahassee, Florida. My husband and I were married in September 2015. We have two beautiful sons, three cats, and two dogs. I am a Tallahassee native and love incorporating Tallahassee's natural beauty into my photographs. When I'm not photographing sweet families and amazing couples, I'm studying for my law degree, binge-watching Netflix shows with my husband, and chasing toddlers around the house.

I know firsthand how important and meaningful a photograph can be. There is no better way to stop a moment in time and ensure it doesn't fade, even when your memory does. When you choose me as your photographer, you can be sure that I will capture the true heart of your family and the love that is shared there. I'll take time to get to know you, your partner, and any other family members so that your final images reflect the real you.

Choosing the right photographer can make or break your experience. If you're looking for a down-to-earth, slightly awkward photographer who will laugh too much and feel like a friend, I can't wait to hear from you!

Hi there!

1. I would eat ice cream with every meal if I could.
2. I've watched every season of Grey's Anatomy at least 5 times.
3. I love all things Star Wars.
4. The beach is my favorite place to be.
5. I have expensive taste in food, so catch me munching on hibachi and fondue on a weekly basis.
6. As the youngest of four girls, I've perfected the skill of yelling over others to be heard.
7. I'm an empath, so if you see me crying randomly or smiling like a loon, mind your business.
8. I have a secret, insatiable craving to live in the mountains.
9. Singing was my first love.
10. I like shorter books that I can finish reading in one day because I hate having to wait to find out what happens.


Our Story

Tommy and I met when I was out of school for a semester. He was my first boyfriend, and I love that about our relationship. We've always loved going on adventures, big and small, and we've done our best to instill that sense of adventure in our boys as well. Some of our favorite family activities are camping, beach days, and amusement parks. 

As much as I love family time, Tommy and I make sure that we get quality alone time as well. We hit the amusement parks alone so we can do coasters together. We both love music and have been to some of the most incredible concerts. If money or time is tight, our favorite, simplest thing to do is dinner at local gems and a movie at the Dolby cinema.

Big and little adventures help bring us closer together and create super fun memories, but it's those quiet moments--at home, at the park, in the car--that really stand out as the most beautiful moments in my mind. That's why during any portrait session, I do my best to capture the standard poses, the big moments, but also all the in-between.

I can't wait to capture your beautiful, raw moments!



"Even though it was so hot and humid and my wild child was all over the place, she was so patient and kind and got amazing pictures!"

Amanda is so sweet and AMAZING at what she does! We had a family session and even though it was soooo hot and humid and my wild child was all over the place, she was so patient and kind and got amazing pictures! I received the gallery so fast for us to pick out our favorites (which was pretty much all of them). I highly recommend Amanda for all your photography needs. We will definitely be repeat customers!

"She came prepared with things my little liked and did a fantastic job."

This was our first experience using Amanda and we love her! She came prepared with things my little liked and did a fantastic job. My toddler is 2 and we suspect has Autism.

We will definitely use her again!

"I was nervous on what to do but...she walked us through everything."

Amanda did our engagement pictures, and we just got them back, I am so in love with them. For someone who had never taken professional pictures before, I was nervous on what to do but she was awesome, she walked us through everything and we enjoyed working with her and look forward to our next session. Thank you so much!
