My name is Amanda my friends sometimes call me “Panda.” I am a California based photographer who captures authentic crazy love stories. My current home is the very foggy and sometimes sunny city of San Francisco. I explore this city with my goofball of a husband Michael. We take care of two wonderfully crazy cats; Rumi and Poe – both named after poets. I am obsessed with Harry Potter, I drink lots of coffee, and I love camping in the woods.
I grew up surrounded by my grandfather’s epic collection of vintage film cameras. It always sparked an interest and eventually I fell into the world of darkroom photography. After that first taste I was hooked. I absolutely love to photograph crazy in love couples and adventurous souls.
I focus on the real stuff. I will be all over those cheeky smiles, fits of laughter, and happy tears. I don’t like to overly pose my couples, so I keep it simple, fun, and candid. I love to capture those spontaneous, imperfect and wild moments that you will cherish for years to come. Our time together may include wind in your hair, dirt under your feet and some crazy dance moves! Let’s have some fun and create something awesome!

What type of photo retouching do you do?
