THE HEART BEHIND OUR BUSINESS

Nothing has a stronger impact than living through a tragedy that changes the course of your life, and building something beautiful out of the rubble that was left behind.

THE HEART BEHIND WHAT WE DO

OUR GOAL is very simple. We're here to remind you OF YOUR LOVE and your LEGACY

The year we experienced our house fire my mom gifted us three huge photo albums filled with photos from my childhood. I flip through it regularly to relive the hot summer days when I busted open my first piñata on my birthday in Panama. Whenever we experience a loss in the family, the first things I reach for are those albums. And on days when I need to be reminded of the time my dad raced his buddies down our street on our Big Wheels, I go to the albums. 

You see. When we lost our photographs in the house fire, we lost more than just images printed on paper. We lost the ability to pull them out whenever we needed to be reminded of the lives we've created together. 

I'm extremely thankful that my parents had the foresight to print these memories for our family.

I'm Amanda.

Virginia wedding photographer, founder, film aficionado, and mental health champion.

I started my career as a portrait photographer in 2010, opening the doors of Amanda Adams Photography, LLC. Returning to my roots, I quickly introduced my clients to medium format film in 2013, and haven't looked back.

After losing everything in a house fire, it has become my deepest desire to preserve family legacies through imagery and beautifully designed heirlooms that can be handed down generations.

When I'm not busy photographing weddings you can usually find me around our farm with our two daughters and corgi puppy, Parker.

We are a calming presence who gently guides you while capturing killer portraits and the quiet, candid in-between moments.

WE TAKE PRIDE IN...

...quickly and efficiently photographing the wedding party so you can enjoy your cocktail hour
...knowing exactly how to move your timeline forward, while keeping a close eye on the clock so we can get you where you need to be
...anticipating moments unfolding, before they even happen
...watching for the small but memorable moments, to capture them as they happen
...gently offering posing direction while allowing you to interact with your partner in a natural way (no stiff posing, here!)
...preserving the start of your marriage by honoring who you are as a couple

Ready to begin building a legacy worth documenting?

We don't believe that wedding photography services should come in a one-size-fits-all package. Each of our couples have unique needs, styles, and personalities. But one thing they all have in common is that they value the relationships they've cultivated. Our couples treasure their families and are excited to begin building their own with the love of their lives.
