Steph and Alan’s classy wedding in Bismarck, North Dakota started with a long history of 416.  They first met in the 416 flight test squadron where they are both engineers, so it was only fitting they got married on 4.16.16 at exactly 4:16 in the afternoon.  Their intimate wedding included guests from across the county, including their California friends who kept everyone entertained during the reception.  Steph and Alan have such a great love for each other, their friends and their family.  It was incredibly beautiful to see their reactions throughout the day and to witness such a powerful and emotional ceremony.  Steph had everyone laughing and crying throughout the ceremony with her fantastic fascial expressions.  Even the rain showers didn’t deter Steph and Alan, we simply explored the church basement and entertained ourselves until it was time for the ceremony!    Enjoy their amazing 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.
