"We first met Amanda in summer of 2009 when my now husband and I were engaged and looking for a wedding photographer. We clicked with Amanda right from the start, really liked her work and felt she was affordable so we booked her. She did an amazing job photographing our engagement session which was done in Old Town, San Diego and she included my 8 year old son in the photos as well which made them even more special. Our wedding was October 2, 2009 in La Jolla, CA; was a large wedding and had many logistics involved as it was being featured in "For the Bride" magazine due to the fact that I'm the current Mrs. San Diego County International and former Mrs. California America 2004 so the schedule for the day was a bit hectic. Amanda, God bless her, was very on top of things, organized, fast and relaxed which helped to keep me calm and relaxed as well. She did an astounding job in capturing the photos we previously requested in our consult appointment and she captured candids and many in the moment shots. She also matted one of our engagement photos in a 16x20 matte and our guests were able to sign the framing around the photo as a keepsake for us. Each photo tells a story not just about the day but about that exact moment and to this day friends and family enjoy looking through our beautiful coffee table book and reminiscing on our wedding day. Since then she has photographed not only our engagement and wedding day, but also family/ Christmas portraits, head shots for beauty pageants and our maternity portraits. She's quick, creative, affordable and amazing at what she does and we highly recommend her as a photographer. Not only is she our photographer, but she's also become a dear friend and we're blessed to know her and be able to work with her."
"My husband and I were lucky enough to book Amanda for our Wedding 1/16/10 its almost a year later and we continue to talk about her incredible service and talent. My husband and I are not your typical couple we both work in theatre and are huge pop culture geeks. Amanda shot our engagement session, formal engagement sitting and Wedding photos.Our engagement session took place in the Gaslamp District in Downtown SD where our favorite pub is, outside the restaurant where we had our first date and around our favorite places to chill during Comic Con. She was so flexible and a great collaborator we spent an hour visiting our favorite places around downtown and then went to a local theatre where she braved taking shots backstage in some tricky areas. The day felt like we were hanging with a good friend we had known forever, we never felt rushed like she was on the clock. A few months after the session downtown Amanda invited us to sit for a formal portrait that she printed and matted for our guests to sign on our wedding day. The day of our Wedding we had three different locations and a tight schedule for Amanda and she was on time for everything.. I was very comfortable having her in the bridal suite as I prepared. The friendliness and easy going attitude Amanda projects makes it easy to relax for her to capture intimate moments, and unexpected setbacks. When our Rolls Royce from the church to the reception site had a flat tire eating up our scheduled fun photos with the wedding party outdoors, Amanda set up her studio lighting in a cool area of the hotel lobby so the wedding party could sneak out during open dancing, Amanda handled this hiccup with such an upbeat and helpful attitude that I never stressed.I cannot wait to book Amanda (Will You Marry Me Photography) for future family and maternity photos."
"Amanda was amazing. From the beginning I knew that a good photographer was one of the most important things for me. I did a little research and found Amanda. Not only did she make my husband feel comfortable (he's not too into posing for pictures!), but her prices were reasonable and her pictures came out beautiful. Even after the wedding was over, she continued to be a pleasure to work with. When the printer made a few errors in our album, she worked hard and quickly to get those errors corrected... she even came to my work to drop off one of the corrected books! Amanda was truly a pleasure to work with and I am so thankful we found her for our big day! I can't wait to be able to use Amanda in the future... perhaps for pregnancy or family photos one of these days!"
"My husband and I got engaged in August 2007 and immediately started interviewing photographers to do our engagment photos and wedding photos. We were extremely nervous and didn't know what to expect. We met Amanda at a cafe' and took a look at her work and we were excited to see how talented she was. Amanda immediately made us feel comforatable. After meeting with Amanda we went to dinner and it didn't take us long to decide to book her. We called her that night and booked her. We set up a time and place for our engagement photos. Amanda was extremely helpful with suggestions of what to wear. When we arrived we were nervous and tight. Amanda lossened us up and had us feeling comfortable in no time. She had great pose ideas and had us feeling like naturals. She even had us laughing, we had a blast. After the session, I was anxious to see our pictures and she was able to get them to us in a timely manner. Our pictures came out great! As soon as I saw them I knew I had to buy the CD. I printed some and have had them up in our home ever since.When our wedding day came around in August of 2008 Amanda was wonderful. She was everywhere we wanted and needed her to be. She even helped to get some of our other vendors in line! She took wonderful pictures and captured every moment of our special day. She did whatever it took to take the best shots, including climbing on things. I am so grateful for her efforts because our photos were priceless. We even had guests coming up to us telling us how wonderful and nice our photographer was being. Since our wedding we have hired Amanda to take other photos for us, we really enjoy working with her. I have recommended her to countless friends. I keep our wedding album out on the table and show anyone who is willing to look. We have had numerous compliments about our photos. I look forward to working with Amanda again in the future.Amanda, I can't even begin to thank you. We are so grateful for you! Having you photograph our wedding is the best decision we made. Your amazing and you have a true talent. You also made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Thank you!"
"When we started to plan our wedding, photography was a top priority for us. We felt pictures were one of the only things we'd have left to remind us of our wedding after all is said and done and it is completely true! Amanda did an amazing job in capturing the essence of the day. She really understood what we wanted from the engagement pictures to our wedding pictures. We admired her enthusiasm and love for her work and it reflected in our pictures. I couldn't be happier with our decision to have Amanda photograph one of the most important and special days of our lives."
