I am always so honored when couples choose me to be their photographer for their big day. There is so much responsibility that comes with it, as a photographer. When my good friend Jessie asked me to not only be a guest at her quaint shindig, but to be their photographer as well, I jumped at the opportunity. Being a transplant to this small area in Franklin County MO, Jessie became one of my closest friends. I'm so lucky to have her in my life. The love that she has shown my children and I, is that of a sister, not just a friend. I wanted her wedding to be everything. The best ever. I always want every wedding I photograph, to be spectacular, but this one in particular needed to be the best. Jess deserves the best. <3 Jessica & Shane, I won't wish you "all the luck" because I know you two are 100% perfect for one another. You don't need luck. You have God & all of your family & friends around you & you two will have a very blessed marriage. I love all four of you. Thank you so much for allowing me to take part in your truly beautiful day.
Our girls are so lucky to have such a close bond. Their friendship warms my heart. To have a sister to grow up with and share so many memories with is truly special.
I love that we were able to capture so many real & goofy/fun moments on this special day. Truly shows their love for life.
Amanda is a free spirited, outgoing, sometimes dorky (but in a good way) photographer & artist. She has been married for 15 years to her sweetheart & is a mom to 3 amazing children. When she isn't hustling as a girl boss
