Behind the Lens

Meet amanda

I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.

Hopeless romantic (and total Enneagram 2), lover of light, chipotle, travel, and sunsets on the beach. 

I'm Amanda, the girl behind the lens, and I'm so glad you stopped by! I am a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Columbus, Ohio. I am joyfully following Jesus, married to my best friend, and an adventurer with a bucket list a mile long.

 I love spending time with my handsome husband and you can most often find us eating chipotle, binge watching Brooklyn 99, or hopping in the car for a drive somewhere new!  

Speaking of things I love, the reason you are here, I LOVE my job! It is truly a blessing to wake up every morning and live out my dreams and passions! It truly makes my heart so happy that my job allows me to travel, celebrate the gift of marriage, and literally spend one of the happiest days of my couples life with them! It is my joy and privilege to serve each of my couples and celebrate with them all the while stilling the memories from their special day for generations to come through my lens!

I'm Amanda

hello lovely!

Maverick is my office buddy and constant shadow. He's the sweetest ball of fluff and Tim and I love him dearly!

Furry friend

My sweet, loving, and handsome husband. Tim is my other half and the one who holds my heart! Being married and spending every day living life together is truly better than I ever could have dreamed! Our marriage is part of why I am such a strong believer in marriage and am so excited as my couples get to embark on the same beautiful adventure!



Peonies, ranunculus, and garden roses are my personal favorite! I love the big fluffy flowers.

Type of flower


All things pink. Watching New Girl over and over again. Bath and body works candles. And listening to all the true crime podcasts!

guilty pleasure


As much as my adventurous soul loves to explore and see new things, my absolute favorite place to travel to is the beach!
