Inspired by your love

Elopement Photographer Located in Lake Tahoe, CA. Traveling Any chance I get across the western U.S. and beyond.

Inspired to hold on tight and jump with both feet.
To look at your partner with awe in your eyes as you say “I do.”
It’s profound, this thing you’re sharing....

Inspired to hold on tight
 and jump with both feet.
To look at your partner
with awe in your eyes
as you say “I do.”
It’s profound, this thing
you’re sharing....

 

profound and beautiful and absolutely yours.

The vows you're sharing are sacred.

THE STATUS QUO? YOU AND I BOTH KNOW IT HAS NO PLACE HERE.

When you throw out all the expectations and strip away the stress of a traditional wedding, you’re left with the pure essence of marriage. It’s the best way to cross this threshold — focused on what really matters.

together.

You two, 

incredible.

Hi! I'm Amanda


Especially here in Tahoe!

I'm thrilled they speak to you too!
You don't have to scale a mountain side to quench your thirst for wonder - but if peaks fill your cup, I'm all for bagging at sunrise! I am here to help you create your blissful vision and balance the experience of a lifetime with the sacredness of your vows. All while making sure we stay hydrated and with plenty of snacks!
Even if it's with a cold brewski at the end of the day. 

Have I mentioned  
I LOVE elopements in Lake Tahoe?!

and I love elopements!

A lil peep of what it's like to work with me 

(note: there's a happy f-bomb in this video)

All you need to do is show up...

I've got you

Eloping may mean doing things your way, but it doesn’t mean “last minute at the courthouse.” It can be hard to know where to start (and what permits to secure). That’s where I come in.

I’ll bring:

01

My tips and resources to connect with fantastic local vendors in Lake Tahoe and beyond

02

Experience with planning and timeline creation

03

My best listening skills so I know exactly how to document your elopement day

04

Hype, support, undivided attention and extra bobby pins

05

Leave No Trace ethics and respect for every space I’m in

06

Warm, loving and chill vibes and the one joke I remember

— Isabel + Luke

Everyone is still talking about how great she was! She expertly managed to make everyone, even the most camera shy of us (ME), feel at ease. Plus, she is genuinely fun to hang out with!

I am so happy to have met Amanda!
She has great energy, is professional, and truly cares about what she does.

There's no such thing as time travel.

But your images sure come close

Have you ever held a photo in your hands and felt the world dissolve around you? 

Been pulled back to the way your partner laughed or the smile they shared with only you? A single photo can unlock memories and emotions. It can make you stop and notice something new and bittersweet about a tiny sliver of a moment.

It blows my mind that a camera can do that. You push a button and create something with so much power. Sometimes it makes me step back and just go W H O A.

HAVE VAN, WILL TRAVEL

Life as a traveling photographer

Lake Tahoe is my base, but the road is my home. Traveling this insanely beautiful country with my camera at my side fills my soul like nothing else.

So how does this “traveling photographer” thing work?
Simple. Get in touch to access my travel schedule and let’s start planning. From an elopement in Mammoth Lakes, CA to an in-home family session in Albuquerque, NM, I’d love to cross paths with you and document this gorgeous slice of time.

Interested in having me come to you? Let’s talk about it.

Some of my favorite elopement destinations include Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park, Moab, Zion, and Sedona.
