Hi there! I'm Amanda!

I am a wedding, portrait and lifestyle photographer located in Youngstown, Ohio. I am willing to travel to capture your beautiful moments!

I began photography when I inherited my grandfathers film camera in high school. When I first stepped foot into the darkroom, I immediately fell in love. Seeing my images develop before my eyes felt like magic. To this day, I see photography as art, as a form of expression and as a way to create tangible memories for so many individuals.

I love when things are awkward and imperfect because somehow it seems more real. I spend a lot of time inside my head. There are dreams and imaginations there. It’s where my art comes from. It’s how I see an image before I even capture it. I’m quiet, an observer of the world. I sometimes wish I had the guts just so walk up to a stranger and ask them what they’re reading and if they are in love, but I’m too timid for that. I revel in my silence, in my books and in the company of my cats. My hair is always tangled, I'll dance in the rain whenever the opportunity arises and my bare feet tend to always gather the ground beneath me. 

Let's connect and grab a cup of coffee! I cannot wait to learn more about you and to have the opportunity to create beautiful images together.

Love & Light
