My name is Amanda (middle name, Iris, like the flower) – I am a Philadelphia wedding, family and lifestyle photographer. I am so happy you decided to stop by! Wherever you are in your search for a person to document your love story, this page will tell you more about the experience I provide to my couples and families.
Stay a while and get lost in the galleries of genuine love, candid moments and blissful happiness. I document all love stories, from intimate elopements to big bashes and the years of adventure that follow saying “I do.”
If you like what you see, let’s chat!
And if you keep scrolling, you will find out a little more about me too.
A little more about me …
I grew up on a mini-farm in NJ and thought I would one day be a veterinarian or equestrian. Chickens were just one of the many pets I raised – did you know they can lay eggs of various pastel colors?
Here’s a surprise: I don’t have a cliche “I was born with a camera in my hand” story to tell you. Honestly, that is not how I ended up here, today … documenting love, life, laughter and all that happens in-between. It’s quite a journey – and it all started with a black & white film photography course senior year of college (where I spent more hours in the dark room than I did at the bar). Post graduation, I put my marketing degree to work, spending my free time dabbling with old film cameras. With the encouragement and support of my husband, I said goodbye to years of project management and dove head-first in to life as a photography business owner!
Connecting with couples and families fuels my soul – I get giddy for a session and immerse myself fully in the emotional rawness of a wedding celebration. While I pour my heart in to my time behind the camera, I equally love going for a long walk along the Schuylkill River or curling up on the couch to read a book (hashtag #ambivert).
What else do I enjoy? The many adventures of motherhood, experiencing new cultures while traveling the world, collecting old film cameras, spending time surrounded by nature, horseback riding, Crossfit, Urbex, chasing the Aurora Borealis, yummy gluten-free treats and discovering new ciders.
