Adventure & Story – Denver Colorado

Have you ever needed “something” but you didn’t quite know what that something was?  That was me a month ago.  Lost in the uber competitive photography world.  Lost in a state where reaching out to local photographers has not been a positive experience over the last two years (despite having an overwhelming supportive group back “home”).  Finally, a couple amazing friends and even more amazing photographers suggested I attend Adventure & Story.  Just my luck, Gene (Geneoh) and Levi were about to have another Adventure & Story Workshop just a few hours from me.  So I signed up, packed the car, threw in my husband and dog, and headed south to Denver.

Denver has always held a sense of awe over me since I first saw the front range back in 1997.  Coming into Denver and seeing the foothills, snow caped peaks, and all the wonder a mountain can hold immediatly puts me into a special place.  Gathering downtown I met the 5 other attendees along with Gene and Levi.  Together for the next 2 days we talked about everything photography.  From branding, to shooting, to delivery of images.  The group itself was amazing, creatives with such interesting thoughts and ideas, all willing to share and come together for the goodness of a collective whole.  It felt like home again.  I can’t wait to join back up with this group.  But in the meantime enjoy some images from our shoot in the mountains.  


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.
