Hey! I'm Amanda :)

I'm a Sydney based wedding & engagement photographer - and I am absolutely obsessed with capturing candid and natural moments between couples.

I love caffeine, a good organised wedding timeline, and crisp photos. Adding a bit of creativity into my photography is what I live for - we can do some poses, but I live to capture the moments that are real, raw, and unposed.

I want to capture the moment you two pause and look into each others eyes because you are communicating telepathically about how you feel about being in front of the camera. I want to capture the moment your partner whispers something ridiculous into your ear and you burst out laughing. I want to capture the moment your partner sees you for the first time in a wedding dress and starts tearing up (I'll be honest, I'm probably going to tear up too).

I take photos that stand the test of time and that are unique, authentic, and full of real moments. I'm super passionate about photography, but I'm also super passionate about making sure that your session and your day is so smooth. Even if something doesn't go perfectly as planned (which lets be honest, how much of what we plan works out perfectly?!), everyone still has a bloody great time.

I just want to say thanks for being here. I appreciate you taking the time to check out what I do and the art I am creating. Feel free to snoop around, check out my galleries, and if you think we'd be a good match, fill out my contact form and let's chat :)

Where Is My Accent From?

Lots of people I meet have a hard time placing my accent! I grew up in Sonoma County, California (near Napa, just an hour north of San Francisco). I lived there for most of my life, but when I was 26 years old I left home to travel the world. I travelled for a year straight, and then came to Australia on Working Holiday Visa, where I met Michael - my partner of now 8 years. I got permanent residency in Australia in the middle of the pandemic; next up, citizenship!

My Other Obsessions

I will admit, photography takes up a huge part of my life. It's not just a job, it's what I truly love to do. Aside from photography, I love hiking (I visit the Blue Mountains regularly), travelling (I've been to 35+ countries), and reading. I'm currently making my way through all of the Sarah J Maas books. I am obsessed with wellness and could talk forever about red light therapy, magnesium baths, and my Oura ring. I am also a huge plant lover - my home office has 17 plants in it. My partner likes to say that I work in a jungle :)

What I do when I'm not taking photos

I've given myself a goal of reading 30 books in 2024 (hit me up with recommendations!). I live for morning beach walks that end at a good cafe, and in the evenings I'm usually cooking up a Marley Spoon and sipping a vino with my partner, Michael. During the day, I am editing, responding to emails, and planning out my Insta grid ;)
