Bismarck Wedding Photographer | Coming Home

Travels so far in 2016 have taken me to Tulsa, Bozeman, Aberdeen, most of Wisconsin, Washington DC and Richmond VA.  Its pretty amazing to see new sights, meet amazing people and take in the culture each city has to offer (you would be surprised by the art scene in Tulsa).  But there is something about being home.  Being able to sleep in your own bed and relax with friends.  Currently my home is Bismarck, North Dakota.  While it may not have a metro like Washington DC, amazing restaurants like Bozeman, or as many trains as Aberdeen, it does have a sense of peacefulness and quiet beauty.  Just wondering the capital grounds before sunset on any night will allow you to melt away into the huge trees and forget that you are in the great plains.  I’m looking forward to being on the road almost the entire month of June, but coming back to Bismarck will be super sweet.





Adventure. Photography. Love.

Amanda is a highly sought travel wedding photographer, where no destination is to remote.  Based in Palmer, Alaska with a satellite location in the beautiful Kickapoo Valley in Southwest Wisconsin.  Amanda is available to travel to your destination wedding, elopement, or engagement. Recent wedding and engagement travels to New York, Virginia, Jamaica, Mexico, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin showcase her adventurous spirit to capture love in remote and unique locations.  

Playing with toy cameras before she could walk, Amanda was soon using a fisher price 110 mm film camera.  She found herself spending her teenage and college years with her 35 mm film camera, rarely leaving her side, Amanda spent six weeks in Iceland and Europe capturing environmental justice with her film cameras before entering graduate school and the digital age.  While still enjoying 35mm and medium format film for personal projects, today Amanda uses digital technology for documenting her clients biggest day.  

 Photography the Feels Natural

Ensuring her clients enjoy their wedding day is the most important element for Amanda. Thus Amanda is unobtrusive, capturing the day as it happens. Amanda does not work from a shot list, but instead reacts to events as they unfold.  This form of photography creates a visual story organic in nature.  Amanda has an eye for capturing real moments.  Her style of photography sets her apart from other wedding photographers.  

Throughout the day Amanda uses nature to help enhance her beautiful subjects.  Using natural light, shadows, and reflections Amanda ensures the bride and groom stand out.  Amanda is drawn to the magical light occurring at sunrise and sunset where she lets her creativity run free.  While Amanda prefers to work at venues that accompany her free spirit including backyards, farms, ranches, barns, wineries and secluded getaway, her talents allow her to work in most any setting.
