Let me start off by saying that if I could give more than a 5 star rating, I would in a heartbeat! From the moment I saw Amanda's beautiful work, I knew that I wanted to book her for our wedding. Her pictures were so amazing, and had the exact ...
look that we were going for. This feeling was solidified when I got the opportunity to have a video chat consultation with her. I was out of state due to my job, so I couldn't meet with her in person, but she wanted to make sure that she would be the right fit as our photographer. To say that she was the right fit would be a HUGE understatement! Her personality is so incredibly genuine and I felt as though I was chatting with a friend. This being said, her level of professionalism can't be beat! We decided to book both Amanda and her business partner (also named Amanda!) for our Big Day so that we could get all the pictures we wanted.
We met Amanda for the first time in person for our engagement session. We were both a little nervous since we had never had professional photos done before, but she made us feel so comfortable and we honestly couldn't stop laughing! These made for some genuinely amazing (and happy!) photos that we used for our Save the Dates! After we left our engagement session, my (then) fiancé and I couldn't stop talking about how excited we were that we had her as our Wedding Photographer.
Before the Big Day, my (then) fiancé and I met up with Amanda again at her office and discussed what shots were important to us and any other details that were needed. She was also a HUGE help in squaring away our timeline!
On the day of our wedding, I couldn't have asked for anyone better as a photographer! They were both on time, professional, full of energy, and SO MANY of our guests commented on how wonderful they both were! My Dad also mentioned that they were "stealthy" and were never overbearing while still managing to get the perfect shots! I'd also like to mention that on the day of our Wedding, we experienced a heat wave. They quickly got the shots outside (with the pictures still turning out AMAZING) and were incredibly organized, ensuring that no one in the Bridal Party became a sweaty mess.
I was so excited to see our pictures, but I figured it would be at least a few days before we would get to see a preview...Boy, was I SO wrong! We were so incredibly thrilled that we got to see a preview of our album THE NEXT DAY! (And let's be honest, who doesn't want to change their profile picture to a shot from the Big Day as soon as possible??) The pictures were more than we could've EVER hoped for and we still get comments on how beautiful they are!
I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about Amanda Souders Photography. Both Amanda Souders and Amanda Howard were absolutely incredible and I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!
