We’re so excited you’re here! We are Amanda & Richard- a husband & wife photography team. We call the Upper Peninsula of Michigan or ‘the U.P.” our home & we love getting to live in an area surrounded by so much natural beauty. We also jump at any chance to travel, so no matter where you are we’d love to work with you! When we’re not taking pictures, you can find us spoiling our fur-baby Rocky, rewatching The Office on Netflix for the 29th time, trying new restaurants & breweries, or sitting around a bonfire.
We’ve been shooting weddings together since 2012. We are passionate about capturing the ‘real’ moments. We want to create images that feel like you, images that you can look back on in 40 years & feel transported to the nervous energy before your first look, the swish of your dress on the dance floor, that speech that made you cry. We strive to show up & tell the truth.
We also love getting to work with families & seniors! Our motto is the same for these sessions. Nothing is ever perfect- we are all about accepting where we are now & honoring that. Those moments with your new baby in the nursery or the stuffed animal you’re kid refuses to go anywhere without won’t last. We get excited about capturing the real, the raw, the messy parts of this beautiful life.
