Meet Amanda

Hey there! I’m so glad you found me! I’ll start right off with this: I absolutely LOVE what I do. Photography has been a lifelong passion for me, from the time my Mammaw gave me my first film camera.

Whether we're running around Cades Cove chasing the sunset, or I get to spend the whole day capturing every beautiful detail of your long-awaited, much-anticipated wedding, my goal is to put you at ease and get a good belly laugh out of you at some point in the process. I believe posed portraits have their place, but the really “good stuff” comes in between...

Client Reviews

Treasure Lacey

Amanda has an incredible passion for photography that shows through in her photos. She captured amazing shots of my family; especially my one year old when he was getting tired. It's not easy to get babies to always cooperate with the camera. However, because of her patient and playful personality, she was able to get him to smile and laugh. She truly has captured memories that will last a lifetime.

I am a wedding coordinator and recently worked a wedding with Amanda. She was an absolute joy to work with. Her eye for great photos is evident, she is so kind, and so relaxed the whole day! I hope to work with Amanda again really soon!!
