Amanda was recommended to us by a friend (which many people in their family have used her as well) and we couldn't be more happy with our decision! She was incredibly responsive, professional, and hilarious. She made all of our shoots fun and had us at ease. Amanda not only is... Read More an amazing photographer, but she even recommended the timeline for the day and helped me with some decoration ideas that I couldn't decide! Since she does this for a living, she knows what works in pictures and I trusted her opinion :) She also does destination weddings and shoots- we met up with her in Paris a few months after our wedding. What a dream! After your special day, the only thing left are your memories and pictures. Choosing the right photographer (to me) is one of the most important decisions for your wedding day and you will be so happy that you chose Amanda!

Amanda was an absolute joy to work with. She made us feel so comfortable and at ease. I loved her questionnaire prior to the wedding... it allowed us to think about locations/details/groups of people I wanted photos with prior to the day of the wedding. Nothing was overlooked.... Read More She captured the moments perfectly. She took the feel of the decor/dress/etc into consideration to perfectly tie it all together. When I look at our photos, I am transported back to our wedding day, and feel the exact same emotions all over again. She executes the family photos at the church like a pro! Simply the best. She has an eye for detail like none other. She takes her job seriously and is so professional, while being able to laugh with the group. I do not believe anyone else could have captured our wedding the way she did. I am beyond in love with the album. I was beyond pleased to have her as a part of our day. Amanda, you are one in a million! You won't be disappointed!

My husband and I got married this past February in Port Huron, Michigan. As soon as we saw Amanda's work, we knew we wanted to meet with her. Amanda is so personable and truly gets to know not only your soon to be spouse, but what you want as a couple on your wedding day. She...

Amanda went out to our venue a week or two before the wedding, to see the space, get a feel for lighting, and spacial relations. Amanda captured all the details from my wedding dress, to our memory table, and of course all the special details we planned for months. Amanda and her staff really captured the beauty, love, and family unity of our special day. What we loved when we saw our photos, was all of the moments that were captured, that we did not know they took pictures of. They even had shots of my husband and I face-timing our family who was stationed in Japan, and could not make it. My husband and I had a pretty rowdy wedding party, and it was helpful to have Amanda keep them in line during photos. She also helped me bustle my wedding dress! Our pictures are stunning and really help us relive our wedding day each time we look at them. For that, we are forever grateful. My husband and I highly recommend Amanda and her team!

First off, I'd like to start by saying that I am not one to write reviews...ever! That being said, I have broken my own pattern to share with prospective clients just how amazing Amanda Dumouchelle is, both in person and in her work! Amanda first worked on our engagement photo... Read More shoot shortly after we were engaged. We chose the Traverse City area of Michigan for its various array of landscapes and scenery. The day was kind of cold and slightly rainy, which worried me. Throughout the day, Amanda was awesome and kept reassuring us that the photos would come out wonderfully.

Amanda not only made us look and feel incredible, she was a true professional, while yet being able to keep things light and fun. Fast forward a year to our dream wedding in Cortona, Italy on September 28th 2016. We never even considered hiring another photographer to travel with us to Italy! Amanda was so gracious and helpful throughout our planning process, and we knew we were in good hands! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect in every way, from the destination to the weather. Amanda was so kind, patient, and fun to work with again. She took the time to walk us all through her thoughts for different shots, while other times she seemed to blend in to the background, which really helped me and my groomsmen feel comfortable and at ease. The sneak previews we have seen from our wedding day are stunning, and I am beaming with excitement over how our entire photo suite will turn out! The work Amanda did for us throughout our entire engagement process and wedding day helped to make the whole experience so much more special for my wife and I. She has also done several shoots for our family and even some friends, all of which turned out stunning and are centerpieces in our homes. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Amanda, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, professional, spirited, vibrant, and fun photographer! Thanks again for everything Amanda!
