I'm Amber! Welcome to the blog, a journal about my business, travels, and attempts at life. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi There!

A couple weeks ago, I posted a blog post with a list of 25 Activities for Quarantine… One of the activities on that list was “Start a travel journal”, beginning with making a list of all the places you plan to go once this pandemic is over. And that’s exactly what I did! I created […]

Oftentimes when I tell people I shoot film, they don’t quite understand what I mean at first. Many people assume it means I shoot video.

As a photographer, I believe your engagement session is one of the most important parts of the pre-wedding process for four big reasons…. 1. It gives us a chance to spend time together and get to know each other better before the big day. Let’s face it. You spend a lot of time with your […]

When I first started my photography business, I managed my projects with email and notebooks… And just to give you a little background about myself, I am someone who LIVES for structure. It sort of runs my life, which is a borderline bad thing… but that’s another issue for another time. I knew I couldn’t […]

It was all so perfectly planned… Brooke and Tim had flown into Dallas from Orange County to visit some friends the night before.
