I talked to 3-4 photographers before choosing who I would use for my big day. Just over the phone Amanda was energetic, SO sweet, and you could tell how much she loves her job. Little did I know I had made the best decision ever that day!!!!! I...
have never met a photographer or anyone in their field for that matter that takes out so much time to pay attention and recognize their clients the way she does. I am forever grateful I choose her. I love her photography style and she made every second of taking pictures a blast. Even my fiancé said how fun she makes it and how he enjoyed it and he hates taking pictures! We both LOVE Amanda and we cannot recommend her enough. I will definitely be using her for any future pictures we have.

I am so in love with the moments she captured and she makes them seem so effortless! We had so much fun shooting with her, and I'm so glad to be an AMP bride. Thank you, Amanda!

Amanda captured our wedding (as well as our engagement pictures and bridal portraits) and WOW. If you are in search of a photographer, look no further.
Her photos speak for themselves… she's crazy talented, but you get so much more than that wh...
en working with her.
You can tell within minutes of meeting her how passionate she is about her brides, and she exemplifies that throughout the entire process. She was one of the most professional vendors we worked with (which was something that was important to us during our search for a photographer), but also the one that made us feel most like we were old friends. Her ability to strike that balance truly makes her one of a kind, and we feel so thankful to have had her be the one to capture our special day.

Finding the perfect photographer is definitely a very difficult task. But when I found Amanda May Photos, I found just that!
Amanda is truly amazing! Her pictures are beautiful! She is a great photographer that makes you feel comfortable behi...
nd the camera, coaches you through poses to make them look natural, literally captures shots that gives you chills and she is also one of the nicest people I have ever met. She is bubbly and laughs and smiles the entire day showing she truly loves what she does! She is very personal and I can easily say, that you become instant friends with her. She is that type of person.
Amanda also does a lot of things behind the scenes before the wedding day. She helps create a timeline to ensure that we stay on time before the wedding. I have never been apart of wedding where they did not run late until my own when we had Amanda who helped keep everything on track.
After the wedding, we received a chuck of our pictures back within 5 days of our wedding!! She called these her favorites! Again, I have never been apart of a wedding that received so many pictures back in such a short amount of time!
Overall, if you are looking for the absolute best photographer, look no further! You found her!

d an amazing job today! Fast forward to the following summer, we get engaged and after we made all our calls and I finally downloaded every app I could to assist us in planning a wedding, I instantly searched for Amanda on WeddingWire and asked her in a very long message if she would meet with us. I was ecstatic when we booked our appointment but I was absolutely blown away when we got to her office and she treated us like we were the most important people she had ever met and it stayed that way through our entire engagement and wedding!
On our honeymoon, my husband said, “I already know who will be doing maternity and family photos when that day comes.”
Aside from the way she makes you feel, her work is absolutely phenomenal! One of my favorite things that she does is has an iPad or screen scrolling with some of your wedding photos AT YOUR RECEPTION!!! How many times can you say you saw some of your getting ready and ceremony photos as you enter your reception?! Knowing from a previous wedding that she did this, we kept it a secret from our family and they were all blown away! I think it was the main topic of the entire reception lol.
If you are still looking for a photographer or are on the fence about using AMP, I challenge you to just simply send her a message with your questions or concerns. One conversation with Amanda and I guarantee you will know you made the right choice!

Ok if you are a lazy review reader, like me, here is the short version.
Amanda is an AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER!

She is such a personable sweet soul
She offers a customizable wedding package. She is not pushy...
or judgy no matter the amount you spend when you book her. You will not regret the money that you spend on her!!!
Alrighty, so now for the long version. First of all I really can not say enough good things about this lady she is kind, patient, caring, intentional, comforting, funny, joyful, and so very sweet! Her ability to capture the uniqueness of her couples, families, individual clients, etc. is incredible!
If you want not only someone who will take beautiful pictures of your day but will also be a friend that you can be vulnerable and candid with then Amanda May is who you should book. The Tuesday before my husband and I got married, on Saturday, my family learned that my fathers cancer, that had been in remission for 9 years, had in fact metastasized to his Liver. It was devastating... I called Amanda that evening to tell her what was going on. As I cried on the phone with her and asked her to pray for my family and me she stopped me and asked if she could go ahead and pray for me right then and there! As for the rehearsal dinner my father was not able to attend in order to save his strength for my wedding day. Amanda made sure to get tons of pictures of my dad and me before the wedding ceremony. When we were taking family portraits after the ceremony she made sure to adjust the shot list so that all the pictures we needed with my father in them were taken first so that he could get back home and rest. During the wedding these small and seemingly mundane tweaks and changes didn’t really affect me much.
A week after our wedding on September 9th my father went home to be with Jesus. Then came the album approving process and getting all the edited and finalized images. As I was going through my wedding album to approve the lay out I was clicking through the computerized version of what would be my wedding album and then I was just overwhelmed. Amanda had told me in the email that she had devoted an entire spread to the pictures of my dad and me before the ceremony. These pictures will always be priceless to me! Over and over again Amanda just loved on me in the little things through such a difficult time.
I hope and pray that your story is not intertwined with loss like mine was. I share my story so that if you find yourself in a difficult situation, that isn’t the perfect fairytale ending, you know that if you decide on Amanda May Photography you get more that an awesome photographer. You get a friend that will deeply and earnestly care about you and your special day.

dislikes. She was very low pressure in her sales process, which was very comforting. She helped us understand potential issues and address any concerns we had throught out the process which instilled confidence quickly in her knowledge. By the time we left our appointment, we felt as if we had spent the last hour with a new friend. Her marketing materials are beautiful and very informative. They provided great guidance on what to consider, not only about her product but about the wedding planning process in general, which was extremely helpful! Amanda was an amazing mentor during the whole planning process and we appreciated her feedback because we felt that she cared about providing a great product, but an even better experience with her. At the event, our guests were amazed at how efficient and kind she was. She also stayed much later than our discussed timeline to capture every moment of our wedding and we greatly appreciate it! Our pictures turned out amazing! Absolutely love Amanda and her work and will definitely work with her again!

We were on a tight schedule and she made sure to lay it out, communicate with our coordinator, she (literally) ran around taking photos all day. When I shared them with friends they actually asked if she was a ninja and couldn't understand how she was able to capture so many angles, events, details etc. We looked to her for guidance, recommendations, and took her professional advice for what it is - PROFESSIONAL! She is the best and made our wedding an event we will never forget! I cannot rate her any higher (but if I could I would). Hands down the best $$ we spent!
