I'm Amanda, owner and photographer over here at Amanda & Co. Photo. I'm crazy excited that you took the time to stop by and learn about me! It's been my honor to cover weddings for almost 10 years, with endless locations across Missouri and Illinois. When I am not behind the lens, I am very much a real person. I'll just let you read the below for yourself ;)
A bit about me... After a decade of my city living, my Dad passed, and I moved back home to the country to help out. I had no idea the love and laughter that awaited me. While I still love the city, coming home again to Midwest sunsets, firefly evenings, and dewy mornings has restored my soul and deepened my love for capturing your favorite moments.
When I am not covering your big day, I am full time mom to two amazing girls (Ana 10, and Alex 24) and also parenting backwards my sweet and feisty momma. (Linda 81). The absolute love of my life is a farmer and a fireman, and all together we love our hometown and community. We have a farmhouse we are restoring that's full of as many shenanigans as anything on HGTV, a crazy hound dog (Jake), and two very troublesome ducks (Willie and Millie). Let's just say life is never dull.
You will find myself and the three other amazing photographers here at Amanda & Co. Photo are in the business of storytelling. We want to know how it all started, the proposal, and of course all the laughs in between. Our sessions are not out to take a picture, they are capturing the moments that make your story unique.
At weddings you will always have two photographers, this way we never miss a moment. We are there to help plan, answer questions, keep your wedding party laughing, and your day on track. More often than not at the end of the day you will find me at a table chatting with your grandparents (one of my favorite things), and listening to tales of how their story began, because your family is our family.
Now that you know a bit about me, I would love the opportunity to get to know you better and see what packages may best suit your wedding! I look forward to hearing from you, learning about your elegant city or country dream wedding, and how we may capture your story,
Now let's get started. . .
