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:

“She did an incredible job capturing the beautiful scenery as well as letting our personality shine…”
Amanda’s work is amazing! She took our engagement photos in the fall of 2017 and our wedding photos June 2018. Both locations were outdoors and she did an incredible job capturing the beautiful scenery as well as letting our personality and relationship shine through in the photos. Amanda is so enjoyable to work with, she quickly understood the style of photos and poses we wanted and made both … Read more

“If you want perfect wedding photos, as well as to work with a genuinely kind and caring person-look no further!”
Amanda quickly became someone we consider a friend, after it was clear how much she cared about us and our special day. During our engagement session, Amanda really took the time to understand us as a couple as well as our individual personalities. She made it a total blast and even made my camera-shy husband comfortable posing for pictures. The day of the wedding, she made ever… Read more

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. When we got the photos, my husband said, “She made us look like models!” She really did. We were able to buy printed photos from Amanda’s website for great p… Read more
“Creative, talented, and works well with her clients…”
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. I would recommend Amanda to everyone and anyone who is looking for a true professional. She made a special moment truly magical. I am incredibly grateful.
