My Philosophy

Your photos are like fine wine. They get better and better every single year as they age.

 

My philosophy is simple. I believe that your photos should tell an honest story. The beautiful, the messy, the quiet, the funny, and all of the goodness that happens in-between. I want your images to truly evoke emotions. Be it a portrait or a an in-the-moment, your photos should connect you as humans. Isn't that what we all want to remember? By watching, waiting, listening and anticipating, I aim to document your moments as they truly happen. Sure I will guide you, as well as photograph the details you worked so hard on. But my moment first approach to is the most important promise I make to my clients. If this speaks to you, I'd love to hear from you.

 

 

 

 

Hi, I'm Amanda

and I'd like to be your forever photographer.

 

 

I am a wedding, portrait, interior and commercial photographer based in Minneapolis. (have camera, will travel) A lot of my couples hire me after many years after their wedding to photograph their newest life milestones. I photograph anything and everything. Some say I should narrow myself more, but I consider myself a photographer of life, love, and anything beautiful, so if your project falls within those lines, I'll photograph it. I am also the owner of Bundle Studio, a boutique child portrait studio located in South Minneapolis,

 

I grew up on a dairy farm in central Minnesota which I think I can thank for my love of nature, my imagination, and my obsession with animals. Lucky for me, most of my clients have pets and often times include them in their big day or their family photos!

 

I share my life and passions with my husband James, my daughter Audrey, our golden lab Leelou and our 4 backyard chickens (couldn't leave them out, they are family too!)

 

When I'm not working you can usually find me obsessing over rugs and/or interior design, renovating something in our home or studio with my husband, doing yoga, traveling or visiting my best friends, or out in nature with my dog and daughter.

 

Needless to say, but I'll say it anyway - photography is my passion. It's my creative outlet. Since 2011 I have had the honor of being a part of hundreds of couples most important days, and hundreds of families who have trusted me with their most important milestones and memories. I do not take this lightly. I'm grateful each and every day, and am constantly working on bettering myself and my work for my future clients.

 

Thank you for stopping by to check out my work. I am thrilled that my work has caught your eye. If you are looking for a portrait, commercial, or wedding photographer in Minnesota or anywhere else, I look forward to hearing from you!
