"I can’t express how wildly incredible my and my husband’s experience shooting with Amanda was! As someone who is incredibly uncomfortable having their picture taken by other people, and someone who had never been professionally shot before, saying I was nervous would have been an understatement! Amanda was kind enough to drive the both of us to Deception Pass where the weather was a mix of sunshine and mild grays. She was kind and funny and conversation was easy, making the drive seem extremely quick! Once we arrived at our destination, Amanda, my husband, and I all began to walk down the trail to the water and I hadn’t even noticed she had started to take pictures! The process was so incredibly natural and pleasant all I had to do was go on a hike with two lovely people and kiss my husband in the sunlight! Amanda was clear in her direction, but left most of everything up to us! She was not in the least bit bossy or demanding, and we laughed on the beach just like old friends do. When it finally became too cold (we shot in march! brrr!) to continue taking pictures, she was incredibly patient about what we could handle and what we were comfortable with! When the pictures came out to us (incredibly quickly) I was awestruck in the beauty and pure moments she had captured so easily. Amanda was a dream to work with and I have been saving up to work with her again. I had never felt as good about myself as when I had seen the pictures she had taken and I am beyond excited to work with her again. My children will see these pictures and they will forever be hung up in any home I live in. I am beyond grateful to know Amanda not just as the brilliant artist she is, but as a dear friend. She is the number one person I will refer anyone looking for photographs to! Thank you, Amanda!"
