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!

July 6, 2020

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 […]

If you’re wondering whether a First Look is right for you, stop right here. That moment the Bride and Groom see each other for the first time on their wedding day is magical. And this is true whether the couple chooses to wait until the bride walks down the aisle or chooses to do a […]

The Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix is an incredible venue with a unique, vintage feel. You can just feel history dating back to the 1920’s as you explore the grounds. I’ts a lush oasis in the middle of the Arizona desert, and a wonderful backdrop for this classic, romantic wedding. The light in Arizona looks so […]

Let me tell you guys a little story… Back in 2015, I bought my first DSLR camera. My boyfriend, Trey, and I were traveling a lot, and I originally bought it only to take photos of the beautiful landscapes we were witnessing. Not knowing what path it would eventually lead me down… A few months […]
