For the couple blazing their own trail
Whether you had the most epic of meet-cutes or you both swiped right, the only thing that matters is what you do with the time together now and having adorable photos. You’re not a regular couple, you’re a cool couple and having a photographer that gets your vibe is important.
Your wedding photographer is who you spend the most time with when you’re saying “I do” so getting along with them is a good idea. I won’t treat you like everyone else, I get to know you, I remember your pet-peeves, your pet’s names and your favorite shows. I make you laugh and could quote your vows and toasts years later. Sure, I’m your wedding photographer but I’m also your ride or die, memory maker, picture taker. I’m Amanda.
I’m Amanda Lee, a wedding photographer based in Staten Island, New York. I want you to get to know me before even considering me to take your photos because I’m helping you create family heirlooms, it’s sort of a big deal.
My longest “relationship” ever is with Grey’s Anatomy, I have committed 15 years to that TV show and if Shonda is ready for another 15 then I’m game. On the contrary, I change my hair constantly. I’ve recently had pink hair, teal hair, now rocking a balayaged mohawk/side shave thing. This makes it pretty difficult for Uber drivers to find me.
I’m married to my husband Austin, we met at an anti-valentines party I threw 7 years ago and have been in love ever since because cupid is funny that way. We love to travel, we’ve visited 17 countries together, but don’t think your girl is slumming it, Airbnbs foreverrrr. I like to watch movies while I fly through the sky (my personal record was 13 on a roundtrip flight, seriously!)
I love to read while I’m not in the clouds, books like “You’re a Badass” and “Essentialism” and I’m always open to recommendations.
I’ve been in the wedding industry for 5 years and still cry at least once for every wedding, I’m a mush. I know these moments are precious no matter how delicate or grand, I’m just trying to make your day easy, tell your story beautifully and be your photo-friend.
