Your life is an adventure worth documenting. Your story, your smile, your journey matters and deserves to be told in a timeless and authentic way. 

I’ve learned the hard way just how vital it is to slow down and take time to pursue joy in the day to day. To hit pause and see that sunset. To go on the hike no matter how stressful the week has been. To get dressed up and go on that date night. To look around and appreciate the gifts (big and small) that you’ve been blessed with. That’s the gift I want to give you in your images. 

The experience you have during your engagement session and wedding day should remind you of all the         to be found in life. Your real-life fairy tale is coming true! Nothing makes me happier than seeing my couples smiling ear to ear in front of my lens, realizing how beautiful their life together truly is.     

Whether it's your wedding day, your engagement, or just another day in the sun, I want to celebrate         . 

feel and capture the pure joy of being

Kind Words

"She served my family and I legendarily. We wouldn't recommend any photographer more than Amanda.
We wouldn't have wanted anyone else to shoot our day but you!"

-Leslie & Mike

"I've had many experiences with photographers over the years and no experience has been as wonderful as with Amanda Karis Photography. She was the BEST cheerleader and made my fiancé (who normally hates taking pictures) walk away from the shoot feeling comfortable and excited.

We could not recommend Amanda Karis Photography more! I will definitely be using her services in the future!"

-Sara & Patrick
