I'm Amy, the face behind the camera. A storyteller with a camera, photographing your love and what's important to you.
I have no doubt you are looking for a photographer who resonates with you through their photography style. But I would imagine you want someone whom you can trust with your story and the ability to care about creating photos that will forever move you.
You deserve a photographer who gets you and understands how important photos can be.
Well before your wedding day or portrait session, I am invested in your story and I'll be with you every step of the way. If you're looking for a photographer who will help forgo the stress of planning for your wedding day, prep you with how your home decor will determine what to wear for your family portraits or find the best spots for your senior pictures on Mackinac Island, then we need to chat soon!
I am a wedding and portrait photographer located on the sunrise side of northern Michigan. Born and raised here, Alpena is the place I call home. My house is filled with fur babies surrounded by 20 acres of wooded paradise. Some of my favorite days are spent biking or running, lazy beach days on Lake Huron, or at home, relaxing with a glass of wine. I love to travel and you'll most likely find me wandering out west somewhere.
I love nothing more than meeting new people, developing a relationship with them and creating photos they will love and cherish. I believe any time spent in front of my camera should be an absolute blast! My goal with every picture taken is for you to feel comfortable, like yourselves, beautiful and confident. One thing I have learned through life is how valuable a photograph can be. For me, a picture is time captured, an ability to remember forever. There is no greater way to immortalize emotions and preserve moments than through photos.
You are visiting my website to decide whether or not I will be a photographer you can feel at ease with, to trust my knowledge and how you will benefit from having me photograph you.
I truly believe in putting you first and foremost 100%, taking in consideration pictures I create of you and your loved ones are of utmost importance on sentimental, personal and emotional levels. You deserve portraits showcasing your story, holding onto a memory, and not forgetting what it felt like the moment the shutter clicked.
Even though my home base is northeast Michigan, I've been known to have an adventurous side, loving every opportunity to take my camera and travel to new places around Michigan, but especially out west to places like Colorado, Utah, Arizona, & Montana. While my passion has always been about photographing high school seniors or documenting a couple's wedding day, I also mentor other photographers who are facing the same struggles as me when I began as a photographer. I believe in community over competition and am an open book to all that I know about being a successful photographer.
