Wendy and Nestor are one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet! I know a number of people who have met them and were surprised to find they’re not married yet — they seem like one of those couples who’s been together forever. They just click like that! We met up at Central Perk, a coffee shop here in Fort Dodge, to start their session. Kaleb, a barista there, was awesome enough to do some of his latte art for a few shots too! I’ve been wanting to do a coffeeshop engagement for aaaaages now, so I was pretty stoked. After Central Perk, the clouds cleared and we were able to get some springy outdoor photographs as well. I cannot wait until their wedding next month! Take a peek at our lovely time together:

“Amanda was amazing! We were so excited to receive the link to her gallery app less than 24 hours after our wedding. This made it so easy to show off our pictures to friends and family. Her work is beautiful and I would definitely hire her again!”

We had to cancel our wedding due to COVID and decided to elope last-minute. Amanda was incredible! She responded within minutes and we were able to “meet” her virtually to discuss our vision. Amanda is friendly, professional, and made us feel comfortable instantly. She collaborated with us to create the perfect vision for our elopement day.

Attention to detail is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about Amanda.

Is there a 6 star rating? If there was, I would chose it. Amanda is creative, talented, works well with her clients, is responsive and a true artist. She went above and beyond my expectations.

“Truly you have a great eye…”
I wanted to compliment you. I’ve been in the media business for a long time and around photographers and I want to tell you how wonderful your photos are. Of course I am biased- but truly you have a great eye. The composition is wonderful. And I saw the lighting and the cluttered atmosphere at the Opera House and was amazed at what you pulled off. Congratulations.
