“You’ll like Amy, she’s an artist!”
-Amy’s Barbie doll in Toy Story 2
Heyyy, I’m Amy
a wedding and portrait photographer living in Orange County, California.
I’m an artist at heart.
When I was little I used to draw and make art allll the time! After I got a degree in graphic design, I found out that photography gave meaning to my passion for creating art by connecting me with all kinds of interesting people and allowing me to tell a bit of their story through beautiful images.
I’d be a lesser version of myself without my incredibly kind and silly (and good lookin’) husband John. We’ve got a deep relationship rooted in discovering beauty wherever we go and that’s what makes us a good team! Oh, and secret but not-so-secret fact: he is my second shooter at weddings (lucky for you)
You’ll often find me hiking and exploring. Being in nature / discovering new places invigorates me and fuels my desire to make deeper, more meaningful, and more colorful art! My fav places are currently Kauai (where we honeymooned), the Oregon Coast, and Mammoth Lakes CA. But I’m up in the Southern California hills with the cactus on the daily.
Some things that make
my heart happy:
– OUR GIANT ORANGE BENGAL CAT SESAME
– MINIMALIST & MIDCENTURY DESIGN
– FUNKY ART
– GOOD ROOT BEER AND HOMEMADE PIZZA
– COOKING TASTY FOOD WITH THE HUSBAND
– SWIMMING IN RIVERS / THE OCEAN
– THE SCENT OF CITRUS BLOSSOMS AND ORANGES
– PRETTY ROCKS & GEODES
We enjoyed being photographed by Amy (and her husband John who is just as awesome as she is). Our photos turned out so amazing and we are so grateful that Amy was able to capture our personalities in our photographs. She is so talented AND a genuinely cool person which is so rare these days.
