Missouri River Trail Mandan North Dakota

2016 is filled with promise – only being a couple months in we are still excited about our goal to get out more (and work less – between the two of us we have 5 jobs).  So when I was given the job of planning date night, I knew what it would be.  I had been wanting to get Wayne out to the Missouri River Trail in Mandan for quite a while, but it seems we always went to our default locations for short hikes just outside of town.  So finally we hit the trail as the sun started to set. We didn’t make the whole trail, but the dog had a great run and we enjoyed meeting a lot of other fun dog owners along the trail.

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.
