Photography is more than just imagery.
It’s a              of your day. 

unique story.

story.

unique

real part

Because it’s a story that never gets old. One that will be told over and over again for years to come.   

Weddings exemplify the start of a new life where families are created and legacies are born. They are a memorable celebration. Solemn vow. Joy-filled memory. And a testament to your love story.

The deep significance of your wedding is what drives me to capture timeless, beautiful, and organic images that truly depict the palpable love of your day. Your photographs are more than just moments in time. They are keepsakes that will be framed, held, treasured, shared, and passed down as a tangible reminder of “how it all began…”

B.E. PUBLISHING

For 4 years, I’ve been walking alongside couples as they promise their love to each other. I’ve photographed celebrations on private beaches and in Southern mansions. I’ve seen my work published in prestigious publications like Martha Stewart, Carats & Cake, Style Me Pretty, and More.

But what drives me is this: Giving my couples a photography experience that results in a seamless & enjoyable day. 

Beyond the imagery itself, I understand that you want your wedding to feel effortless and focused on each other...not dictated by a strict timeline and all the photos we must cross off the list.

That’s why my Signature Wedding Process is built entirely on you and how you want to feel on your wedding day...

But what drives me is this: Giving my couples a photography experience that results in a seamless & enjoyable day.

“If we could give ten stars, we would. Getting married during a pandemic was slightly stressful but Amanda was a ray of sunshine throughout the entire process! As soon as we met Amanda we knew right away that she                          so we wouldn't have to worry about a single thing. We never had to reach out to Amanda with questions- she was                             of any questions and concerns we had. Amanda is so                      and her joy is infectious.

“Early on, we wondered if any photographer would capture us as we are, and not disguise us in the way of controlling our photographs and facing poses. Amanda was the PERFECT fit for us. She helped us find poses that reflect us and our love...simple and sweet. She                                                     She captured our engagement and wedding photos, and I have not one complaint or regret - except that it's impossible to choose a favorite!”

I believe that you and your story are unique and that you deserve a fully personalized wedding experience. From the moment you say “YES!” to the day you receive your heirloom wedding album, I’m here to serve you well and provide you with a high-touch service

Your wedding gallery will include hundreds of images, and while I’m excited for you to share this gallery with all your family, printing your photographs out into tangible items that you can hold and see on a daily basis is the way to go. 

I believe in capturing the entirety of your love story and the momentous occasion, from the details to the portraits, to the action, to every moment in between. Approximately 8 weeks after your wedding day you will receive an online gallery to review and share with loved ones.

During your engagement experience, we’ll really get to know each other and ensure you’re comfortable in front of the camera. Not to mention, being engaged is a wonderful thing and deserves to be documented by a professional. 

Once we’re close to your wedding day, we’ll make sure we’re on the same page and prepared for your wedding day. We’ll connect with you and your planner and talk through your custom timeline, details, and ensure everything is in place to capture the start of your marriage.

You’ll receive plenty of helpful information that will prepare you for being in front of the camera. We’ll also work closely with your wedding planning team to make sure no detail goes unnoticed.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE 





 
A: Not only does your engagement experience allow me to get to know you better as a couple before your wedding day, it also allows me to see how you interact and move together. Each couple is unique, therefore throughout your engagement experience I can learn what works best for you and what makes you feel most comfortable so you receive images that reflect who YOU are as a couple.
 
This allows for more natural and genuine interaction on your wedding day because you’re already comfortable being in front of my lens. The engagement experience also allows you to put your worries aside knowing how I work before your wedding day, and put you at ease in that I won’t be a stranger as I document your big day.

 If you decline the engagement experience, know that I’ll still be able to document your day and help you feel comfortable being photographed, it’s just an opportunity to do so with the outcome being professional images of you before you get married. 








A: The engagement experience is unique to each couple and designed with your story in mind. We’ll work together to design and pull together your engagement experience timeline, outfits, and locations to create your unique story. 





A: Consider meaningful places. I encourage you to think about the below, which usually bring some great options to mind. If you're still struggling, we can always brainstorm something together. 

Where you like to spend time together.
What you enjoy doing as a couple.
Where you have created your favorite memories.
What your style is. 
If you prefer to be inside or outdoors, or what kind of setting. 






A: Engagement sessions are delivered within 6 weeks and weddings within 8 weeks. Since I primarily shoot film, that includes the time it takes to send my lab the film and have it processed; but I promise the wait is worth it. 

Nope, and that’s for a good reason! I filter through every single one of your images and ensure to send you the best, high quality images from your wedding or session. With that being said, since I shoot primarily in film I make every frame and image count so you’ll receive a large majority of the images captured on your wedding day. I believe in delivering the highest quality product to you. You can expect to receive ~60 images per hour of coverage.





A: You will receive an online gallery of images with rights to print your photos on your own should you choose to. Altering the images in any way or submitting them for publication is not allowed without consent from AOP.



 




A: This depends on your wedding day. Your location(s), guest count, timeline, and scope of the event all factor into the coverage needs. The average AOP wedding books 10 to 12 hours of photography coverage. No matter the offering, I help my couples (working closely with their planners) with timeline development to maximize their photography coverage.





A: Investment for elopements begin at 3,000 and weddings begin at 8,000. AOP wedding clients invest 15,000 on average. To see my full service offerings, head over to the contact page and fill out the form so I can get you more details and check availability for your event.







A: We love traveling for weddings. We are based in the Athens, GA area and do charge for travel outside the greater Atlanta area. If travel is required for the AOP team to document your wedding, I will provide a travel quote that includes all necessary costs at the time of inquiry. 




A: So often images just live on our phones and devices. But when it comes to your wedding and the photographs of this special time, printing them out and displaying them in your home or the home of other loved ones, is the way to go. This allows you to cherish those memories directly, without a glowing screen. I offer a variety of products for portrait sessions and weddings, including: archival albums, print boxes, and frame worthy prints.


 





A: I am a hybrid wedding and portrait photographer, utilizing both film and digital photography. I believe in authentic imagery with an elegant, classic, and clean style. I believe in curating timeless images that you can pass on for generations to come. I utilize both a photo journalistic approach but will also guide you with natural and relaxed posing. 




A: BOTH. By shooting in both digital and film, I’m able to utilize the strengths of each medium while delivering a consistent and cohesive wedding gallery. Film is my favorite medium and what I utilize most on wedding days as nothing compares to the look of it and how it can often feel like a piece of art. It provides rich, deep tones, beautiful colors, and timelessness. This medium also allows me to slow down and shoot with even more intention, crafting the best images I can for you. Digital photography also provides many benefits including the clarity and versatility in tough lighting situations.





A: Yes, you’ll receive an online gallery of high-resolution images, including the scans of the images I originally created on film. 




A: Every single image you receive is passed through my quality control standards delivering the highest quality gallery for you.







A: Yes, for several reasons, namely light and timing. However, it is your wedding and you should not feel pressured to do a first look if you’d prefer not to. We will discuss all options so you do what feels best for you while ensuring we get the portraits you want. 






A: We can review those and any specific request you have - like special guests in attendance or certain ceremonies or traditions taking place - ahead of time, as knowing what’s important to you is important to me. Typically I am able to accommodate those types of requests in addition to the quintessential images I aim to capture ; but I ask that you trust me with the overall direction of your wedding day photography. In doing so, I’m able to be more creative and capture images that showcase you as a couple. Plus, I don’t believe in replicating the exact work of others. 


That’s why my Signature Wedding Process is built entirely on you and how you want to feel on your wedding day...

But what drives me is this: Giving my couples a photography experience that results in a seamless & enjoyable day.
