Hi, I’m Amy - wedding photographer, coffee and chocolate lover, Harry Potter obsessed, mama to two littles, and wife to one amazing man! I started my business eight years ago, and I have had the joy of being a part of over 200 weddings. I have traveled the world capturing celebrations in Italy, Brazil, and Mexico, and have been published in the Knot magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, and BRIDES.  I love getting the chance to build up other creatives in the industry by connecting them with other Christian women who can support and cheer them on. I can’t wait to get to know you!

As a four year old I’d get caught having pretend weddings with my dolls. Truth is, not much has changed since I grew up. My journey to photography began hustling as a 2nd photographer. What started out capturing beautiful couples in love with my best friend transformed into owning my own six-figure business. I have photographed over 230 weddings in the East Coast and around the world, I’ve been featured on Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Red Oak Weddings and more. My passion continues to grow in building these relationships and documenting the love stories I get to tell behind the lens.
