WIFE + ADVOCATE OF KINDNESS, ALWAYS
Hi! I'm Amy :)
As a photographer:
This is my third year as a business owner and I had 40 weddings of my own last year, so your wedding won't be my first rodeo, but I definitely still have a fresh perspective. In 2019, I’m only taking on 25 weddings, so I can focus my attention on clients who love my work and value getting an awesome experience. I have a very laid back energy, but make no mistake, I'm extremely ambitious and passionate especially when it comes to my business and my art. Being a photographer and a business owner is my dream job; it allows me to connect with awesome people and create beautiful imagery.
I love learning about what makes people unique and celebrating individuality through photography.
As a human being:
I am a twenty-something living in sunny Orlando, but I will always consider Chicago my home. I have a master’s degree from the University of Illinois that I don’t use (not mad about it, either) and I am always listening to a podcast or self help audio book because I love learning. I can’t talk about myself and not mention my other half. My husband, Tyson, and I met when we were just 16 years old while on a cruise with our families—and I have adored him ever since. We share a love for being outdoors, trying new restaurants, reading and working from coffee shops, and not taking ourselves too seriously. We’re also first time parents and are so in LOVE with our little boy. Being a new mom has taken over my life, but in the best possible way.
Living my life with my husband, starting a family, and being able to do what I love for a living is my absolute dream come true.
Little things that I love about life:
-really laughing, like belly laughs
-the smell of fresh morning air
-remembering I have good leftovers in the fridge
-moving past small talk and talking about real things
-finding a new song that speaks to me and playing 100x in a row
-traveling, but also coming home
-sunsets on the west coast (does anyone else see a sunset and think about how crazy and awesome the world is and it makes you want to cry?! just me? okay.)
Kind words from past clients:
"Amy is absolutely fabulous. I enjoyed working with her for Brett’s and my wedding. She was very supportive and helped everything photo-wise go very smoothly. She was so careful to make sure we got everything we wanted and was always right there taking photos of a guest wanted a photo with us. If you’re looking for someone whose relaxed and still organized so you have nothing to worry about on your big day WITH beautiful photos -she’s your girl. Also, we were a slightly challenging couple because my husband is not super fond of posed pictures. She was an AMAZING fit for us. Gave him enough direction and also enough space so that he felt comfortable and stayed relaxed. Thank you Amy!!!" -Ashley + Brett

"Choosing Amy as our photographer was the best decision we could have made for our wedding! So many people have commented on how gorgeous our pictures turned out.
