Weddings are a whirlwind. After the music winds down, after the decorations are taken down, after the friends and family go home, all that will remain from your best day ever — aside from your vows — are your photographs. Your photographs will bring back every emotion, every tiny moment, taking you back to the moments you long for, the small joys you’d forgotten in the rush of everything.

"There are moments that I know I will long for even as I live them."

That is why I am so passionate about wedding photography.

I know there are dozens of wedding photographers in Grand Junction.
Let me walk you through what you can expect from your unique experience with me.

“Amanda is amazingly professional yet so friendly and personable. We receive comments every day on how amazing of a job she did! I couldn’t be more pleased with her work and how comfortable we both felt having her take our pictures. I wouldn’t and won’t go anywhere else for pictures!!” Katie // Wedding | See their big day…

Wedding Day Details

Because the little things are really the big things on your wedding day, I try to capture as many of those little things as possible. The details of the day are one of my favorite parts! So much love goes into each handmade item, and so much time and investment goes into each decoration. I will work hard to capture every little part of your day.

The thing that really draws me to weddings is the candid emotion, the tiny intimate moments that pass in the blink of an eye (or click of my shutter!) The quick glance of the groom at his newly announced wife. The twinkle in the father’s eye as he gives away his little girl. The tears of the bride as she announces her deep love for her groom, barely audible like she’s giving away a secret. Those are the moments I live for and I love to capture for my clients, and I’m so grateful that they trust me enough to show me those emotions!
