AN ARCHIVE OF love stories

Being invited into the the lives of extraordinary people is an incredible privilege. The stories I adorn through my imagery capture the true essence of the human spirit and the art of being in love.

Angela + Alexander – New York City

Angela + Alexander

Long Island City, New York

Venue: Metropolitan Building

I could not have been more excited to have been hired to photograph this wedding in one of my favorite venues.  I was even more excited and honored when I learned that Angela is a designer and was going to be making her dress, as well as her 4 bridesmaid gowns.  Angela and Alexander wanted a very “editorial” look to their wedding, and I absolutely LOVED being given free reign to just do what I love.

It was EXTREMELY difficult to narrow it down to my favorites! I am so grateful for this experience!

    Breathtaking, Amanda!

  3. Lexi says:

    Before I read that the bride made her own dress I was thinking, man she picked a beautiful gown! I think down the road it will mean more to her that she made it then just buying one for the day. Amanda, I love how you captured their day. Especially the one with the bride and all her bridesmaids.

  4. Ka says:

    The bride is an amazing designer! Her dress and her bride’s maids’ dresses are exquisite! She definitely knows how to drape! And beautifully captured as always, Amanda!
