Elopements & Micro Weddings
IMAGINE YOUR WEDDING DAY…
Imagine your wedding day that’s completely about your love for one another.
Imagine feeling fully comfortable in front of the camera, knowing your photographer will gently guide you to look your best.
Imagine spending your entire wedding day together, exploring an incredible area and doing what you love.
Imagine receiving hundreds of images of your best day ever, and getting to keep every one with no extra charge.
Imagine spending a fraction of the money on your celebration, so you can save that money toward an incredible trip or a down payment on a new home.
Imagine having the flexibilty to plan your perfect day, whether that includes a morning hike, a dip in a hot spring, or the most incredible alpine lake backdrop. Your day is fully your own.
Imagine reliving the best day of your life every time you look through your photographs.
Sound incredible? Your wedding day can be anything you want.
Let’s plan your adventure.
Amanda is the perfect wedding photographer. She’s efficient, she gets absolutely all the shots you want and those you didn’t even know you want, and she just blended into our event perfectly. The photos perfectly captured the whole day and I feel like I can easily relive it just by looking back at the photos. I highly recommend Amanda.
We used Amanda for our wedding and she is the BEST! Our photos turned out amazing and she captured the feel of our night perfectly. She’s also such a cool person and really fun to hang with 🙂 We didn’t want her to leave at the end of the night!
If you want perfect wedding photos, as well as to work with a genuinely kind and caring person-look no further!
I specialize in drinking chai tea lattes, and watching Gilmore Girls reruns! I also specialize in creating genuine, vibrant, and unique photographs for modern and adventurous couples.
My mission is to beautifully capture the story and scenery of your celebration and to provide genuine, emotional artwork for my wedding photography clients. As a full service wedding photographer in Grand Junction, I aim to provide the most memorable, simplified and fun experience, and give my couples tangible high-end artwork from these experiences to pass on to future generations of family.

How do we book you?
If you’re in the area, I love to meet up in person to grab coffee or drinks so we can get to know each other! If you’re not in the area we’ll schedule a phone call or zoom meeting. From there, the booking process is all online. You can sign the agreement and make payments along the way from your client portal!
